“The Triumph of the Human Spirit”
Yanni Tribute “The Triumph of the Human Spirit”
Narrated by Christopher Plummer!
“There is a desire within each of us,
in the deep center of ourselves
that we call our heart.
We were born with it,
it is never completely satisfied,
and it never dies.
We are often unaware of it,
but it is always awake.
It is the Human desire for Love.
Every person in this Earth yearns to love,
to be loved, to know love.
Our true identity, our reason for being
is to be found in this desire.
Love is the “why” of life,
why we are functioning at all.
It is the fundamental energy
of the human spirit.
The fuel on which we run,
the wellspring of our vitality.
And grace, which is the flowing,
creative activity of love itself,
is what makes all goodness possible.
Love should come first,
it should be the beginning of,
and the reason for everything.”
We march into war with the goal – of peace.
We are told we fight for freedom – and our right to believe.
However my neighbour, also has his perverted right to fleece
To take advantage of the week, this is his sole – belief.
Is freedom, but to do as we please – and satisfy only, – our own Selfish needs?
To boast of material success, our ego – glowing in the dark.
The tasks we achieve through the years, often misleads –
And our neighbours view our lives – with a big question mark (?)
However I need not be informed why I feel, – this pain in my heart-
For within lies the love, and my reason – to be- a part.
My neighbour’s financial prosperity, may retain his good health
I wish him no harm, only pray – I could bestow within him, – my own New found wealth.
For we need not war, to show us how freedom is made
What we need is love, – to show us how freedom is played.
Freedom is not to do as we please
But rather to please others, because of what we achieve.
