about

For the great Melody Fairchild. During a walking meditation through the Rocky Mountains, prince of mindfulness Thich Nhat Hanh suggested that we not take the next step, until we’d arrived. “Arrive with every step.”

lyrics

Race The Wind - Purpose

They say you've won some races
But that's not the best thing about you
You’ll take on any mountain,
And give no cause to doubt you

But folks have expectations,
You hate to let them down
You put your best foot forward
You take the higher ground

When the need to show the world has abated
And all the challengers have faded
Time fills your heart, from the start
With Love and no regret
You race the wind, to the end
And arrive with every step

When the one was taken from you
And you could not comprehend
You wrapped her spirit in you
And it's guided you since then

With passion, curiosity and kindness
Now for the both of you it’s my wish
Time fills your heart, from the start
With Love and no regret
May you race the wind, to the end
And arrive with every step

BRiDGE:
There is no finish line
When you bring a beginners mind
And take just one more step each time

INSTRUMENTAL

So give your heart, from the start
With Love and no regret
Race the wind, to the end
And arrive with every step

They say you've run some races, but that's not the best thing about you...
