Mind's Eye

about

The inspiration for ‘Mind’s Eye’ all started with a book I read by Daniel Pinchbeck called “2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl”. In the book I was introduced to shamanic practices from the Amazon and Africa using sacred plant medicines in a way that I really responded to. I set an intention to study down this path and eventually found my way into the hands of a phenomenal Peruvian Guide and a supportive community.

Initially I entered this realm to work on myself but the process was so intensely deep and healing that all aspects of my life were affected from my relationships with my family and friends to my sense of purpose and artistic expression through music. ‘Mind’s Eye’ is the story of a particular journey which after feeling like I was totally dismantled, I witnessed what seemed like the birthplace of creation. From the darkness comes light, from the stillness comes movement, from thought comes form and the whole creative process is supported by Love.

Lyrics & Music by John Zay

Fell into the longest dream I looked around and found the queen
she was there, waiting for me all along
Taken on a journey through both time and space nothing's a waste
in the dark I felt a love so strong

Welcome to your mind's eye feel free to look inside
Welcome to your mind's eye it's time to take a ride

I don't want to lose control when I feel like I'm falling apart
Letting go becomes so hard when you don't know where to start

You had chosen to go first you broke the ice it wasn't always nice
the path was there by your design

So welcome to your mind's eye feel free to look inside
Welcome to your mind's eye you can see the pain go by

I don't want to lose control when I feel like I'm falling apart
Letting go becomes so hard when you don't know where to start

This is our journey we fall into each others
arms and we give ourselves freely to love...to love....to love
