It was a beautiful October day at Oakland, Ca Mini Maker Faire http://ebmakerfaire.wordpress.com/

Parents and Children of all ages attended this incredible, creative faire.  Far I played guitar and Ayanna sang background vocals.  The audience participation was spectacular as the crowd joined in to sing “I Love My Precious Self”.  The audience was asked to send the great energy attained through live music and crowd participation around the world.  With this thought the voices of the crowd increased and the harmony sweetened.  Great collective, harmonious energy was given, prayers were lifted and sent to all living beings.  The following songs were performed:

1. Guru
2. Watah
3. Love is My Saviour
4. Chune
5. Save the World
6. Precious

We are currently working on our CD which will be completed in the next few months.  Please visit our website www.farishields.com and like us on facebook https://www.facebook.com/farishieldsmusic?ref=hl

Filmed by Jonathan Gomwalk.

This song is like this moment in time for all of us, represents a journey that we have all been taking.  To me this journey is about Love.
I was raised a Catholic, went to Rasta, became a Muslim and then a Buddhist.  It was not until 2007 that I finally accepted my Life and realized that Love is my Savior.

Love is My Savior
Joy is my best friend
I use music – It comforts my soul
Want to see you smilin

Jump into the stream cause it rollin
It’s been rollin since the beginning of time
It’s gonna carry you over the boulders in your life
carry you strait into the light – well alright

Love is My Savior
Joy is my best friend
I use music – It comforts my soul
Want to see you smilin

If you wake up everyday and decide what you are going to  take from this life
You will have a life of misery and pain
When you rise and decide what you are going to give day by day – You’ll be eternally happy

Love is My Savior
Joy is my best friend
I use music – It comforts my soul
Want to see you smilin

It’s time for the Enlightened Age to begin yall
Humanity has finally discovered the beautiful world within
Once you have a glimpse of this glorious sunlight
It will make everything all right

Love is My Savior
Joy is my best friend
I use music – It comforts my soul
Want to see you smilin

Smile

Join me in a collective visualization
Feel the Love in your heart
Let it grow and glow – Send it around the world
across the US to Africa, Europe, India, China, Japan, Hawaii and returning to the US
Love – World Wide

People of Japan – This Prayer Poem & Song was called forth by Jonathan Gomwalk. We all stand in gratitude for his powerful spirit!

The Lyrics and Melodies are created as a prayer of hope for the people and families of Japan while in response to the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear reactor challenges in Spring 2011.

Life is Given and Taken Away


We call forth all that is good in humanity, planet earth and the universe.  Surrounding and infusing the people of Japan with hope, inspiration, courage, love, perseverance and endurance – Peace within – Humanity we need each other right now!

Prayer Poem & Song “People of Japan”

People of Japan we are one
Together like the rising sun
We are one earth
We are one love
We are One Family

Sending our love
We send our light
Sending our prayers
To get you through the night

May you be warm
May you have peace
May you have our strength

Mother Earth is Calling, Father Sky Too – Humanity use wisdom in the things you do
It’s time to Love one another, Live with our heart and soul, All nations united for one common goal

People of Japan we are one
We are together like the rising sun
We are one earth
We are one love
We are One Family

Loved Ones we miss you so
So quickly you had to go
You have our best as you move on
On your Journey

Keep our smiles
Keep our joy
Your bright presence helps us to endure
You’re our hope, you have our love
forever more

Mother Earth is Calling, Father Sky Too – Humanity use wisdom in the things you do
It’s time to Love one another, Live with our heart and soul, All nations united for one common goal

People of Japan we are one
We are together like the rising sun
We are one earth
We are one love
We are One Family

World Peace Lyrics & Description

Jonathan Gomwalk from Nigeria Film Production
Alvin from Belize on Bass
Far I  from the US on Guitar and Vocals

Welcome, It’s the awakening of spirit

Can you hear it, tell me can you feel it
Awakening of Spirit – My People you are it
Repeat

Only way we gonna make it through these days
We must meditate and pray
Repeat

Over in Trinidad been developing
And in the states we are networking
In Africa we are uniting
See the Golden Age is dawning, The Golden Age is Dawning, The Golden Age is Dawning

Harmony, Use your talent,
Create World Peace
We must live in Balance, live in balance, we must live in Balance

World Peace, World Peace, World Peace its not that far away
Peace of mind will come when you meditate and pray
Repeat
Muslims, Hindu, Christian, Buddhist, every day they pray

Meditate on world peace and make a brighter day
Repeat
World Peace, World Peace, World Peace its not that far away
Peace of mind will come when you meditate and pray

Only way we gonna make it through these days
We must meditate and pray
Repeat

Feel the Muslims in Mecca Praying

And the People of Japan them Chanting

High Priest in Africa they drumming

Yogis in India meditating

See the Golden Age is dawning, The Golden Age is Dawning, The Golden Age is Dawning

Harmony, Use your talent,
Create World Peac
We must live in Balance, live in balance, we must live in Balance

Jonathan on video says Irie yes I Rastafari!  Beautiful Brotha.

This is a spur of the moment video opportunity that just happened.  No rehersal.  Alvin on the bass is fantastic and picked up the song quickly and we recorded it.  These were the last days that I lived in the house on 11th Ave. where I raised my children.  We were a victim of a combination of predatory lending and loss of income due to the collapse of the US Real Estate industry which I had put all my eggs in that one basket.  It was crazy good when it was happening and crazy bad when it was not.  Anyway it set the stage for this video because I had the PA system set up in the living room and was jamming my way through some tough times.  Wify had already moved out and I had the children half a week.  Lots a jamming.  Plenty of heartfelt jamming.

One cool thing is that we had the African Diaspora on this one of two recordings done on that day.  Jonathan Gomwalk’s father was the Nigerian Ambassador to Ethiopia.  He actually received a gift from His Imperial Majesty Haile Sellassie,  a ping pong set that he went on to represent his country in championship tournaments.  Wow, I am so honored to be in his presence it is like a reminder from the divine that we are truly serving divine energy on the planet.  Alvin I have know for years and is from Belize in Central America.  Funny thing is that about 20 years ago we played together and I was playing bass and he was playing guitar.  Now it’s the opposite.  He has a great family man feel when he plays the bass just steady.

We also recorded Zoom together the same day.  So check.  Make sure you find what you came here to planet earth to do, give it your all and enjoy the process.

One Love!
