G 522 the Fruits
1. Love Whether it is Agape' Philos, Storge' or Eros, Love is really all we want and need. Please sit back and enjoy this opening track that emphasizes the need and desire for Love... 2. Joy When we think about it, don't we all want to feel good and have a good time in life. But there is nothing that brings more Joy than knowing than getting together with friends and family and enjoying each other's company... A celebration of life. Think about that as you sit back and listen to Joy. I know that you're going to Enjoy it... (pun intended) 3. Peace In this world in this time that we live in, it seems as though everywhere we turn, the one thing that is lacking is Peace. Peace of mind, heart and soul. And also Peace between family and friends. There is so much going on that we all wish that we could sit back and just enjoy the good old days. Well put on Track #3. This song was designed to take you on a musical journey, to relax your mind, and allow you to take a break away from this hectic society. This song will quietly scream relaxation, contentment and satisfaction. Please allow peace to wind you down while for a few moments of time you think about a time when there will be peace all around.... 4. Long-Suffering Sometime in life things get us down. There are so many trials and tribulations that it's hard to go on... But instead of giving up, or letting life get the best of us, we are determined to meet the challenges head on. We can't allow depression, discouragement to get the best of us. There are several qualities that we have been endowed with that allow us to do this, patience, endurance, stamina, fortitude and tolerance. But none really say it like the ability to be Long-Suffering... Listen as our Vocalists Kenyatta stresses this in this tribute to all of the above in "Long-Suffering"... 5 Prelude to Kindness and 6 Kindness Prelude to Kindness is a Vocal introduction to Kindness which is a dance between 2 Soprano Saxophones one here and the other there... What's missing in the way that we as people act sometimes? Well, wouldn't you agree that the way we treat each other really is a problem. There is a Divine piece of advice that gives us the key to showing compassion and empathy... and it says... " Do onto others ... Well you know the rest... as we would have them do to us... And if we were kind to one another and showed kindness in our dealings we would be more thoughtful and this in turn would make this world a better place to live in. Well listen to "Kindness" and think of that very topic as this different approach to a needed topic enriches you totally... 6. Goodness Sometimes we just need to do the right thing. It doesn't matter what others do, we have to be determined that there is a need to look within ourselves and set a standard that will say... I choose to do good to all that I meet. I will resist the inward urge to return like behavior. I'll also look for the good in others. Instead of focusing on the negative, I choose to be positive in every aspect of my life. I'll be Good. 7. Faith Despite what we see, think feel or hear, we are determined to stay true to our beliefs. Sometimes we don't know why we go through what we are going through, nor do we know how it is going to turn out, but somehow we continue and things always seem to work out. And think about the worse thing that has ever happened to you, how did you get through it. Well that doesn't matter, because you did get through it. And that gets us ready for the next test, trial or tribulation, and we'll make it through that as well, why because, It is our belief, but more than that, it is our faith... And What is Faith. Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld. Listen to this track entitled faith and see why we believe. 8. Mildness When others are so uptight and angry that they take it out on family, friends or even strangers. Then something is missing. When people get so worked up that their health is affected, Then something is missing. Well what's missing... Mildness, Mildness is missing. See when we are mild, we allow our inner calmness to come out and it exhibits a influence over what we do and say. And people then recognize our true strength, then they realize that it's not the physical strength of a person that determines their value, but that quiet and mild spirit. Listen intently as Mildness attempts to reach inside and pull out that inner calmness. 9. Self-Control Have you ever thought about how we get ourselves into situations? Isn't it because of our desires, our cravings, urges, longings and yearnings? Those things that we give into even when we know that we shouldn't. And when we add into that our own imperfections and the pressures from others or the anxieties from life itself, sometimes it's difficult to hold back from making the mistakes that get us into trouble. But it's not impossible. We all have the ability within ourselves to stand firm, to resist the urges. To deny our cravings, our own personal wants to say No to giving in and giving up, and to say Yes to determination willpower, resolve and fortitude. And being proud of Controlling not others, but in controlling ourselves. Yes Being proud of Self Control... 10. Bonus Track Till Next Time... and Good Bye... Till Next Time is just a fun play on familiar melodies... Melodies that we learned as Children, back when a time was so care free. We'll transition from one memory to the next as we play little nursery rhymes throughout. And Good Bye is a cultural sampling that has an international flavor...
