For those of you who are interested in my music from Mountain Castle Band, listen to Mystic Pearls.

Mystic Pearls is my term for what is esoterically known as The Jewel in the Lotus. The Mystic Pearl is that spark of Inner Spiritual Wisdom that will only reveal itself when the 12 Petals of your Anahata (Heart Chakra) open. The Mystic Pearl is the inner 13th gem that normally lies dormant and completely hidden by the 12 closed petals of the Heart Chakra of most of humanity.This song is about accessing the inner, higher realms of your own intracranial Brahmarandhra (Mountain Chakra). The “mist where the mysteries stay” is about the place where certain yogis and sadhus may dwell — isolated high up in the caves of a mountain that are above the clouds. The “mist where the mysteries stay” refers to wisdom that is stored in the energy of the finest particles within the pure mist of the mountains (your own Mountain Chakra). The line “an entrance opens only on special days” means that you have to be in the proper mental, emotional and physical frequency to allow the inner Ageless Wisdom World to reveal itself to you. The line “I offer you a chance to discover your own Mystic Pearls” is not referring to the personal “I,” but rather to the “Universal I” or the Inner  Eye of Wisdom.

Intro:   Peter — EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument) 

Slip through the mist where the mysteries stay An entrance opens only on special days Inner wealth and the secrets that they keep Only opened to those who seek I offer you a chance To discover those mystic pearls  You want from me those material things Those types of things that money will bring You want security, cash in the bank Will you find joy if you join the upper ranks I offer you things in my heart A chance to share mystic pearls  Mountains of photographs etched in my mind But for most people, too fine to define Mysteries prance through the secrets stored there Locked in the mist and the stillness of the air I offer you things in my heart I offer mystic pearls  Solos:  Mikio — Guitar  Peter Assing — Soprano Sax  Mike Albert — Guitar Beings of the haze were mimicking a kiss Just blink your eyes, its something you’ll miss Particles of moon dust frozen in time Those with closed minds no answers will they find I offer you things in my heart, I offer you mystic pearls  Slip through the mist where the mysteries stay An entrance opens only on special days Inner wealth and the secrets that they keep Only opened to those who seek I offer you a chance To discover your own mystic pearls  Try to uncover your own mystic pearls Deep in your heart, your mystic pearls Try to uncover your own mystic pearls Deep in your heart, your mystic pearls
