“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought;
and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”
At the heart of this song Golden Moment is the deep reverence for life, for this moment, and this one.
This great cosmic event that happened 13 billion years ago that somehow lead to you and I and your family and Elvis and Picasso walking the earth... well, that's just unfathomably exciting.
Almost every day I have some kind of moment where I'm spellbound by how incredible life is.
It's like when I see someone at the football and they realise the camera is on them and they start waving and screaming "I'm on TV! I'm on TV!". I have the same feeling of being surprised that I'm in my own life and that life is not happening to me... it's happening for me. I can't believe I get to be a part of it. I remember that life is enough.
Reminds me of a Budhist Proverb "Enough is a feast".
I'm not that person on the TV, I'm just a regular guy who is alive, with a heater next to me, that when I push one button, it starts to warm the room for me with almost no effort on my behalf. And I marvel at that for a moment.
If you're reading this, I marvel at you. That you're out there. That you opened this. That you read it and that you might go listen to some music I made and you might drop me a line through the wonders of the internet!
We live in an incredible and unbelievable time of abundance. It can be hard to remember this, but when we take a moment to absorb it rather than flee from it, we get everything we need.
This moment is golden. It's the only thing we need. The past and the future can't save you. This moment can set you free.
Hugs and happy wishes for your day.

Tomorrow is not here now
Yesterday is gone anyhow
You never step into the same river twice
Light blasts through only one frame at a time
This light and this frame is called your beautiful life
What fills your world right now, right now, now, now?
What do you feel and what is the accompanying sound? Oh the sound.
You only exist now and here
Who you were yesterday disappeared
Know who you are hold what you’ll be
Just be here as you are with me
Only in this moment can you be yourself perfectly
So now are you seeing every single frame? Every frame?
Connect each flicker into a continuous flame, flame, flame, flame, flame.
This moment is golden. It’s the only thing we need.
The past and the future can’t save you. This moment can set you free.
So make this moment good. Make it the best that you’ve had.
Give it all you are. Give it all that you have.
You don’t have to wait any longer. You can be free right now.
Just give into it, give into it, give into it. I can show you how.
Each moment is an eternity
Each moment is eternally deep
We can set ourselves free, free, free, free, free.
