We are the Brotherhood…We are the Sisterhood…

Hoods…who understood…

Hoods who woke up…some still stuck…

It wasn’t blind luck…it was grace…

That put us here at this time and this place…

It’s a clear case of divine intervention…

From the Gods with pure intention…

We thought it was a new invention…

This thing called Love…

We grew our hair and chanted incantations of

Peace and Love and Brotherhood…

And spread the word as fast as we could…

To anyone who would listen…and all those who should…

Wake up!…

For Gods sake!…before it’s too late…

Remove all injustice…remove all hate…

For it’s a peaceful planet…that’s our fate…

Our goal…to be authentic…to be whole…

Not knowing how…

Like giving a city boy a plow…he doesn’t know how…

Or for God’s sake to be in the NOW

It took us on a spin…deep…deep within…time and time again…within…

We were Christians to begin…with Yogananda woven in…

Then we found a master…practiced Zen…

He said now you have crossed the river…we are grateful…

Put down the boat…To find God you don’t need dope!…

With that statement…he sent my heart afloat!…

Untied my mooring…untethered my hope…

His song missed some crucial notes…incomplete…but so sweet…

Off on our journey…with only bare feet…

In hopes of finding the truth…to retreat….

It was bigger than that…

In a lotus we sat…going with-in…

Where the vortex would spin…

Where everything begins…

If we sat and went within…as a group we would get in…

Letting go of our fathers’ sins…

We spin…we spin…grist for the mill…

What was left would spill…what a thrill to be that still…

The surrender of will…

Face to face…at an incredible pace…

Beyond time…beyond I’m…

Face to face…at an incredible pace…face to face…

With the clear light…suspended in stillness…in inner space…

Return to the source… to the void…

It is safe…be empty…do nothing…

To remain is to refrain from anything…

Be empty…do nothing…do not resist…

In this space where only God exists…

I enlist into the force… where God is the source…

Re-enter into self…

With all this learned wealth…to share this love…

We are grateful we care…with open hearts we bare…

And with a heart that’s filled with Love…

We manifest Peace…Love… and Brotherhood

With all we are…and all we could…

We were given permission…that was our mission…

To share this Love…please listen…

That’s the…  Brotherhood of Eternal Love…
