“Be The Change” Albany Peace Project Theme Song by Mark Shepard

Albany Peace Project Founder Bethany Gonyea got all fired up and passionate about the Albany Peace Project.  I couldn’t help but be deeply moved and inspired by her commitment to walking her talk and making this research a priority. Inspired by her words and ideas I penned this song called “Be The Change (You Want To See In The World)”

The Project kicks of January 1st, 2014 with a group of people focusing their thoughts and intentions on increasing the peace in downtown Albany NY. I felt it was important for me to be involved with this because Everything I practice and teach is built on the foundation that our thoughts have power to influence our personally reality. The very fact that after 35 years of struggling to master my own mind and thinking, I’m still writing and recording the “results of my thoughts” in a form called “songs” is significant… If our thoughts create our own personal reality, what happens when we join our thoughts together with a powerful and positive intention?

Be The Change

5/15/13 Song # 472 by Mark Shepard

What if you could really vote with your heart
Imagine the world a better place because of you
What if we all paused for a moment of peace
What if for a moment all hostility could cease

Be the change you want to see in the world
Be the change you want to see
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Be the change you want to see

Brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers
What if we all got together
And took a moment to breathe with each other
To show that we can make things better?


Broadcasting love is a conscious choice
That allows your hurt to mend
So lay down your arms and open up your heart
There is nothing you have to defend


I will hold you in my heart
And surround you with love
I will hold you in my heart
In the Light we’re all made of
