"Day by day I began to realize that there is an energy in these sacred words. It was coming to me, passing to others through my voice, and would continue flowing after my physical body passes on, as it always has and as it will for eternity. This timeless, sacred energy comes to us by Grace. It is not about you or me, it is about Grace. And so, with this album called Grace, I honor and give thanks to my Guru, the Divine Sound Current that resonates within. By Thy Grace, with Love, for Peace, unto Thee, "
