Better Angels of Our Nature

Dear Friends, Fans & Family....

THANKS so much for those of you who have already so generously contributed financially and energetically to our new album-in-progress, tentatively called "Wild Hearts." We are happily at work in the studio and around the piano now, bringing these songs to life. We will keep you updated as we go...
 
For those who have not yet jumped wholeheartedly into our "Extended Family of the Heart," please check out our fundraising project at Indiegogo and encourage everyone you know to go there too.  There has never been a better time to gather energy and purpose toward putting uplifting music out into the world. We appreciate you all so much! Watch our latest live concert here.  It includes many of our new songs.
 
In the meantime, with the midterm election just days away now.....we are seeing (and gut-level experiencing) so much vitriol, discord, and tragedy in the news every day. At least from our point of view, we seem to be riding a roller coaster which feels pretty much out of control. How do we reach for sanity and tap into our well-being in the midst of all this?
 
Better Angels.
 
For some reason, and after a lifetime of knowing first-hand that I am infused with, and surrounded by, infinite love and divine intelligence.....I forget to tap in.  It's not like it's some arduous process, not like this benevolent guidance system is located in some far-off unreachable nether world.

No. It's always right here, always available, already neatly installed in our DNA, already a part of who we are, even if we haven't always practiced utilizing that higher knowing. All we have to do is wake up and ask for help. And then pay attention and be open to receiving it.
 
In the truest sense, even when it feels like we are having to slam through impossible odds,  there's really no place to get to: We're already home. Listen here to the title cut of our album from 2006, “Already Home.”
 
AND....at the same time, we have this golden opportunity to be right here in our physical world, living out our precious human lives one step at a time. We are graced with the chance to participate fully in our personal and collective drama right here, right now, in real time and in living color.
 

Einstein said that you can't solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it. So, here's our chance to call on our Better Angels and lift our actions up to the high road in all that we think and feel and do. It's time to double down on our spiritual practice and then, from that place, get out and make a difference in the world. It's time to kick some serious ass.
 
So, JD and I are calling on each one of us show up and VOTE in this election. Vote your conscience, vote your heart, vote for the best and highest outcome for all, VOTE SMART.  And get everybody else you know (and maybe some you haven't met yet) to vote also. It's really really really important.
 
In 1861, at the end of his first inaugural address, Abraham Lincoln said this: "I am loath to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the Better Angels of our Nature."
 

We can do this, and more.
 
Thanks and Love from Jan & JD
