Thank you AIYAN BELA !

The lyrics are about passion between two people, but for those seeking union with the One ubiquitous Presence, they are also obviously more about mystical ‘passion’ experienced in Divine Union. The statue above of the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa of Avila by Bernini illustrates superbly what is implied in the song. For example in the lyrics:

You dream of a love
Which is clean, with devotion

It is traveling with no fear through the stars and the immensity
It is crossing through fire, walking on waters

You will never need
Someone in whom to trust
An angel who will take your hand
And will lead you to discover a world of passion

These are the experiences of the ecstatic mystic, the Sufi, and Bhakti Yoga. Union with the God-within us brings the true ‘passion’ we have sought externally for too many lifetimes.

Lyrics:

You dream of a love
Which is pure, with no conditions
Strong, eternal as the sun
With which you draw a passion

You dream of a love
Which is clean, with devotion

Be free, spread the wings of the heart
And fly where passion nests

Chorus
Passion is like a restless wind
That turns into freedom
It is knowing that there’s someone else who lives
Wishing to be able to find you
It is traveling with no fear through the stars and the immensity
It is crossing through fire, walking on waters
Making dreams come true
Passion is that great force
Which moves all creation
It is knowing that someone is waiting for you
Beyond that place where the sun sets
It is forever erasing the word loneliness
It is two souls that join together to reach eternity

You will never need
Someone in whom to trust

An angel who will take your hand
And will lead you to discover a world of passion

(Repeat chorus)

You live with a love
That is strong and with no conditions
Be free and put wings to your heart
Fly where passion nests

VSF:  My memories of you draw me to that place – Where lovers tell their secret tales, Where stars will burn out in their rapture – And peace gives into solid core. There shall we be as no others, You beloved one, and Me. I will wrap you in the evening, For all heaven’s company to see. In the days to come, My angel, You shall see what you desire. You shall Be what each soul longs for … Dancing through Eternal Sky. I move your hand along this page … To tell you of another song, One that morning sunlight captures … One that moves your Heart along. There is no other than the ONE.

VSF:  It seems I saw You everywhere – But in that secret place. – There You waited, All along. – How was I to know You’d pick Such a humble spot to dwell? I thought of You on top of Everest, Unreachable as stars as well … How quietly You waited, knowing, While I rushed about seeking You. – High in airplanes over distant lands, Out the window I strained to gaze, Stretching to see … is that You? And all the arms that sought to hold me … I saw in them some part of You. They did not know what I was dreaming, Perhaps they thought the same of me. Yet all the time, You remained Being, shining, radiant … In the last place, it seems, That I could see!

A higher Consciousness is our only Refuge.
