From the Moon to the Earth: A User’s Guide. 

In the mythos of From the Moon to the Earth, the Moon is a place of isolation, an inner state identified with shallow, fear-based needs: the opinions and approval of others, beliefs that can’t be questioned, self-aggrandizement and the lies to oneself and to others that support it. It represents a place disconnected from the higher functions of our being, and our connectedness to each other and to all of life; it ignores or denies or derides this functioning and connectedness; it is asleep to it. Life on the Moon can appear cheerful, busy, successful—but deep down it is plagued by what is missing, and aches with sorrow and longing as it watches the Earth rise. 

The Earth in this mythos, on the other hand, represents fulfillment, as in fully filled with life: fully incarnate, fully present, fully aware of our interconnectedness with all creation—and filled with gratitude. 

The journey from the Moon to the Earth begins on CD one. Its songs and stories take a mostly lunar view, with things lightening up quite a bit toward the end; it’s last piece, Tellurian Passage, marks the beginning of the actual journey, and is the centerpiece of the project. CD two takes a more earthly view: though not without sorrow, its songs and stories are grounded and grateful.
