This is one of the most pivotal songs in my “catalog”. I started doing some serious work on myself in the mid 1980’s and by 1991 I was starting to understand that pretty much all of my “problems” were being caused by me…
… Caused by the way I was thinking.
This song was really healing for me because at the time I totally DID NOT believe I was a “beautiful person”. I just thought there was something very, very wrong with me.
Nothing I did seemed to work. I was pretty much miserable in every area of my life and it just seemed unfair.
I was a victim in my thinking and therefore in my life. This song helped me to make a shift. Or perhaps making a shift enabled me to write this song… Either way it’s still one of my most requested. So perhaps I am not the only one who needs to hear it. I did another version of it on my Thirsty For The Sky CD so you might want to check that out as well.
Beautiful Person (Version 1)
Song #161 | Jan-March 1991 | CD: Visions And Voices
I am a beautiful person
I am a part of all that is
I accept the abundance of creation
And the infinite gifts it gives
I can not love you if I hate myself
I can not give to you if I am poor
I can not heal the world if I have no health
I can not bring you peace by bringing you war
I am a joyful emotion
Too huge to be contained in me
I spark across the mountains and the oceans
To the edges of the galaxy
I am the lion that I saw in my dream
I unleash the hidden power in me
I am the universe just beyond my eyes
That I am only beginning to see
