Music Recorded, Mixed and Mastered NRS Recording Studio, Hurley, New York April 28-30, May 1-2, 6-9, 1997 Recording, Mixing and Mastering Engineer-Scott Petito '...a heavenly album that takes a universal concept -- the search for the divine inside ourselves -- and lovingly embellishes it with radiant, contemporary classical orchestration for maximum spiritual attunement. By encoding ethereal energies into the channeled melody lines, Shulman and Welsh enable the listener to utilize resonance as a path to their individual place of purity, enlightenment, and love. Raising one's vibrational level while listening to utterly sweet music is a treat indeed and rarely has the search for self-integration been so enjoyable.' --PJ Birosik, New Age Retailer ON BEING A CREATOR or What to do if this album triggers issues of separation By Richard Recently I was providing music for a meditation weekend and had the opportunity to participate in a contemplation on "What is God?". When I tuned in, I was surprised to hear the word "responsibility". This insight lead to the following reflection: "What am I creating in this moment?" Am I creating myself as a cocreator of Divine expression? Am I creating myself as a victim of forces outside of myself preventing my Divine expression? During the past year, as preparations for the recording of KEEPER OF THE HOLY GRAIL accelerated, I've had increasing opportunities to choose the focus of my mental and emotional energies. Discernment of energies in the world and within my consciousness, along with the discipline to act on my understanding have been tremendous tools in reformatting my consciousness from distractions, including anger accusation and self doubt, into the focus and receptivity necessary to bring Divine ideas into manifestation. Sometimes in the midst of such a distraction, the most I could do was objectively watch the craziness. Most important has been my willingness to ask for and receive help from the angels, Masters my own Higher Self when I feel I'm getting off track. Also important for me was the recognition and appreciation of the help that arrived through people. I have found that when such distractions grab my attention, it is usually old patterns of thinking-feeling-behaving coming up for recognition, healing and release. By allowing the feelings to be without either squashing them or buying in to the mental pattern behind them, one begins to see more clearly. These experiences have led to an increase of my ability to hold a space of compassion for unenlightened forces acting in myself and others. This holding of space is the release of judgment of good and bad in favor of the ability to make choices to create a reality I want. Then comes the question "What do I really want?" What I want first is my own inner peace, and to feel my connection of love with myself and ALL THAT IS. What I want is to participate in the Divine expression of my soul for the good of all, including myself. What I want is to be able to see and feel the Divine Plan unfolding, Love and Joy increasing, and the conscious awareness of Divinity on every level including the physical. What I want is to play my part in the mutual creation of a world in which creation is joyful, free, and responsible, and I'm happy to start with me!
