Swimming to the Other Side

I've been listening to Folk Alley, while I work on my NCA paper, and they just finished playing one of my favorite folk songs. I thought I would share it with you. One could go a long way toward an ethical life by following these words as guidepost. I often think through the lyrics and am working to integrate them into my being.  I haven't won the battle yet but I'm trying.

Swimming to the Other Side
Copyright Pat Humphries

Chorus:
We are living 'neath the great Big Dipper
We are washed by the very same rain
We are swimming in the stream together
Some in power and some in pain
We can worship this ground we walk on
Cherishing the beings that we live beside
Loving spirits will live forever 
We're all Swimming to the Other Side

I am alone and I am searching
Hungering for answers in my time
I am balanced at the brink of wisdom
I'm impatient to receive a sign
I move forward with my senses open
Imperfection it be my crime
In humility I will listen, 
We're all Swimming to the Other Side

Chorus

On this journey through thoughts and feelings 
Binding intuition my head, my heart
I am gathering the tools together
I'm preparing to do my part
All of those who have come before me
Band together to be my guide
Loving lessons that I will follow
We're all Swimming to the Other Side

Chorus

When we get there we'll discover
All of the gifts we've been given to share
Have been with us since life's beginning and
We never noticed they were there
We can balance at the brink of wisdom
Never recognizing that we've arrived
Loving spirits will live forever
We're all Swimming to the Other Side

Chorus.

This has been a favorite song of mine for years. Magpie did a great recording a number of years ago. A great modern anthem.
