So,

What songs remind you most of your pantheism?

Many do in either a vague general way, or a very personal way (by triggering a personal memory for example) but as far as songs that pretty much openly feel like pantheist songs to me...

Several of them are Contemporary Christian songs that simply speak the same way I feel about my pantheism

Montana Sky by Whiteheart (oldy)
Surrender to your Love by (Mercy Me)
Breathe (don't know who wrote it, several versions out there)
Stand Inside Your Love (Smashing Pumpkins)
Praise you in the Storm (Casting Crowns)
Watching and Waiting (Moody Blues) oldy

that is what is coming to mind this morning.

I'm listening to Neko Case's Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, and the title track just came on. And as I'm singing along (in my head, of course, since I'm at work), it's starting to sound curiously like the story of my path to Pantheism.

Driving home I see those flooded fields
How can people not know what beauty this is
I've taken it for granted my whole life
Since the day I was born

Clouds hang on these curves like me
And I kneel to the wheel
Of the fox confessor on splendid heels
And he shames me from my seat
And on my guilty feet
I follow him in retreat

What purpose in these deeds
Oh fox confessor please
Who married me to these orphaned blues
"It's not for you to know, but for you to weep and wonder
When the death of your civilization precedes you."

Will I ever see you again
Will there be no one above me to pull my faith in
I flooded my sleeves as I drove home again

Michael Hedges really does it for me. I call it journey music. I go flying or diving or spelunking. It just takes me places in nature. I am filled with awe at his skill, but also at where his music takes me.

His last album before he was killed had lyrics. One of them is from an e e cummings poem...

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

Gosh, that last line sounds familiar some how... ;)

WAKE UP, SLEEPING THREAD!!!

Heh.

Yesterday I heard this amazing song that just called "Pantheism" to me. It's called "Holy Now" by Peter Mayer (http://petermayer.net/news/). It speaks to what I went through going from Christianity to Pantheism.

When I was a boy, each week
On Sunday, we would go to church
And pay attention to the priest
He would read the holy word
And consecrate the holy bread
And everyone would kneel and bow
Today the only difference is
Everything is holy now
Everything, everything
Everything is holy now

When I was in Sunday school
We would learn about the time
Moses split the sea in two
Jesus made the water wine
And I remember feeling sad
That miracles donít happen still
But now I canít keep track
ĎCause everythingís a miracle
Everything, Everything
Everythingís a miracle

Wine from water is not so small
But an even better magic trick
Is that anything is here at all
So the challenging thing becomes
Not to look for miracles
But finding where there isnít one

When holy water was rare at best
It barely wet my fingertips
But now I have to hold my breath
Like Iím swimming in a sea of it
It used to be a world half there
Heavenís second rate hand-me-down
But I walk it with a reverent air
ĎCause everything is holy now
Everything, everything
Everything is holy now

Read a questioning childís face
And say itís not a testament
Thatíd be very hard to say
See another new morning come
And say itís not a sacrament
I tell you that it canít be done

This morning, outside I stood
And saw a little red-winged bird
Shining like a burning bush
Singing like a scripture verse
It made me want to bow my head
I remember when church let out
How things have changed since then
Everything is holy now
It used to be a world half-there
Heavenís second rate hand-me-down
But I walk it with a reverent air
ĎCause everything is holy now

The song I used for my pantheist senior project (which I will be posting later in the week) is a good pantheist song.

It's called Winter Ceremony (Howie B. Leftfoot Remix) by Sacred Spirit. It's great.

Wow, I love those lyrics!

I'm not usually a huge fan of Jamiroquai, but I like the lyrics of his song 'Corner of the Earth'
