Alastu Bi-Rabbikum/Living With Purpose
“With monsoon came flashing clouds, Once again to rain all over, Lightening flashed on Constantinople, and went towards west, It glittered over China, and took care of Samarkand, Then crossing Delhi and Deccan, it thundered in Girnar, Rambling to Rome, Kabul and Kandahar, It crossed Delhi, Decan and Girnar, Rushing to Jaisalmer and then to Bikanere and Bakar, It drenched Bhuj and then Drut and came to Umerkot and then in Walhar. O my lord, bestow prosperity on Sindh forever, O my sweet friend, shower blessings on all the world ” - Muslim Sufi Mystic Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai's Prayer for a better World
Anticipating is a track that is very relevant to what we are experiencing during COVID-19: being STUCK and anticipating things to clear away so that we can return to normal. Of course, as we all understand, we would come on the other side with a “new normal” and that would mean dealing with this state of being stuck in ways that keep us moving, even if we are moving on forked paths. This song not only captures that feeling but also shows you a way to keep your connections alive during this quarantined phase.
