Inspired by the vision of Albany Peace Project founder Bethany Gonyea for a 10 year project to study the effect of meditators focusing on peace in downtown Albany NY during the month of January. Can focused intention lower the crime rate?

The them Ms. Gonyea kept returning to over and over was the idea shared with the world by Gandhi, "Be the change you wish to see in the world"...

Our world is too important to us to be left to the "Professionals", we have to take responsibility for change in our own world on our own level.

There's a lot more but I have to keep this short. :o)


Be The Change
Song #472 by Mark Shepard

What if you could really vote with your heart?
Imagine the world a better place because of you
What if we could pause for a moment of peace?
What if for a moment all hostility could cease?

Be the change you want to see in the world
Be the change you want to see
Be the change you want to see in the world
Be the change you want to see

Brothers sisters, fathers and mothers
What if we all got together
And took a moment to breathe with each other
So that we can make things better


Broadcasting love is a conscious choice
that allows your hurt to mend
So lay down your arms and open up your heart
There is nothing that you have to defend


I will hold you in my heart
And surround you with love
I will hold you in my heart
In the Light we're all made of...

Mark Shepard Albany, New York

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!
