This particular song is an NLP training. It's part of a whole batch of songs I wrote back in 2003-2004 that were EXTREMELY influenced by my training and practice as a Hypnotherapist and NLP teacher. As a "compulsive transformational songwriter" it is just a natural process to turn whatever I'm learning into something that I sing about. Ideas and concepts seem to get deeper into my mind that way and then supports teaching them in creative ways.


On The Cause Way

Song #333 | July-August 2003 | CD: Eyes On The Horizon

You can be who you choose to be
You have everything that you need
To allow yourself to set yourself free
You may not think you are free
You may think you need some kind of key
To unlock the door that isn’t there…

If you focus hard enough
It’s on the floor with the other stuff
But you must bend to pick it up
You can turn it upside down
You can turn it all around
You can even choose to leave it on the ground

There’s a light out on the causeway
Not everyone can see it glow
You may dream you’re wide-awake
Don’t you know that’s how you’ll know?

What you see is what you create
From the thoughts you think that dominate
As you fix or change your state
What can now be pre-supposed?
Are we parts or are we whole?
The most flexible has the most control


You may look up or glance across
You may look down to feel a loss
Or you may choose to look inside
You may remember to the left
While you create your future right
Exactly how, you do it best…

Welcome to my “Life In Song” project.

Since 1976, I’ve been obsessively and compulsively writing songs. Some of them are inspired by my own life, my attempts to understand love, life, spirituality, peace and justice.

While I recently have started to get a little recognition, you’ve probably never heard my songs ANYWHERE.

But now you can hear them... here... Download. Share. Thanks!
