Frank LaRue Owen (Ichinen 一念) Exquisite. Sublime. Sonic medicine. Masterful layering instrumentation. Healing lyrics. Wisdom, insight, humility, gratitude - born of pain. These are bodhisattva vibes...which the world is in desperate need of. Frank LaRue Owen www.purelandpoetry.com Favorite track: Prayer ft EL Tsid.

about

Over the last few years, I have been learning so much about what it means to love and be loved. With my young son and his mother, I have been experiencing the full spectrum of life's emotions - joys and sorrows alike - like never before. The profound love I feel gives me courage to face my greatest fears and continue stepping towards my best self. So clearly, I am learning how the inside universe creates the outside universe - that to truly love another, one must first and foremost love oneself.

As my marriage goes through hard times, the serenity of our home has been shaken to the core. Through the soaring heights and deepest depths of this whole experience, I am also learning a lot about peace - how it’s created and how it’s sustained. I am seeing that peace is not something declared, acquired, or set in stone. Real peace is made and remade, again and again, in each new moment.

The songs on this album are the new melodies and new words that come to my lips while I work to build a home. Hopefully they reflect the continual practice of love. For Peace Process is just that, a process.

Track Name: Reflection
Beauty's the reflection of your self love,
Your self love your self love your self
Track Name: Must I
Must I cry for you to hold me,
Must I fall to have your hand,
Must I lose to know you love me,
Must I leave to know you’re there.
Track Name: Prayer ft EL Tsid
When you don’t know why
You can bow your head

Forget the unforgettable
Leave it down, where it belongs
A remedy is what you came here for
To stabilize the insecure
Moving on, moving up
Giving in, giving up
How do you tell
Stubborn it's stuck
Still trying
Sick and tired ain't thriving

Forget the unforgettable
Leave it where it belongs
A remedy is what you came here for to
To stabilize the insecure
Moving on, moving up
Giving in, giving up
How do you tell
Let stubborn know
Still trying
Sick and tired ain't thriving

Moving on, moving up
Giving in, giving up
Moving on, moving up
Giving in, giving up
Moving on, moving up
Giving in, giving up
Still trying ain't thriving
Track Name: Of All Things
I love the things you say
I love the way they sound
You have a gifted mouth
It’s drawing from the spout

I love to watch you do
Each and every thing you do
You come and draw me out
You make me scream and shout

Of all things, you’re the one
Of all beings, you’re the one
Of all dreams, you’re the one
You’re the one, you’re the one

I love how far you go
And always make it home
You come and hypnotize
I can’t even blink my eyes

Of all things, you’re the one
Of all beings, you’re the one
Of all dreams, you’re the one
You’re the one, you’re the one

Of all things, you’re the one
Of all beings, you’re the one
A daughter of the earth
Brighter than the sun
An end to all this searching
‘Cus it’s love

I love the things you say
I love the way they sound
You have a gifted mouth
It’s drawing from the spout
Track Name: Monsoon
Water
Sky

I love you like water
Like water loves the sky
Track Name: We
When we spend time together
When we spend time together
When we spend time together
Hold me tight when we spend time together
Oh please don’t fight, feels so right
Feels so right when we spend time together

When we spend time together
Feels so right when we spend time together
Hold us tight when we spend time together
Let’s not fight when we spend time together
When we spend time together

When we spend time together
Let’s not fight when we spend time together
Hold us tight when we spend time together
Hold us tight

In in instant, closeness to closeness
Lilies on the tip of my tongue
Knew how’d this be before we begun
Aligned, curves, we’re yet to touch
We touch, curves, overflowing but it’s not too much
Overflowing but it’s not too much

When we spend time together
Let’s not fight, when we spend time together
Hold us tight, when we spend time together
Let’s not fight, when we spend time together
Track Name: Home
I’ve been looking for a home for so long
And when things didn't go right I’d just move on
Traveled all along the high and lowly way
Ever dreaming that I’d one day see the day

That I’d find you
That I’d find you
Then I find you
Then I find you

I’ve been looking for a home for so long
Moving to and from the places come and gone
All along I’ve seen the myriad of ways
Each and every day I make the time to pray

That I find you
That I find you
Then I find you
Ya I found you
Track Name: Untitled (part II)
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love

Baby this is love, love, love, love, love
Baby this is love

This is love, love, love, love, love, love
Baby this is love, love, love, love, love
Baby this is love

You want it, you’re on it
It’s coming from the deep
You know it and sure it’s
All we need to keep

You see it, believe it’s
Coming from the deep
You know it, show it’s
All we need to keep

Baby this is love, love, love, love, love
Baby this is love

Baby this is love, love, love, love, love,
love, love, love, love, love, love, love,
love, love, love
