During the early 90's, I was Music Director at Unity Church of San Luis Obispo, California. The church and the music program were vibrant, inspiring, and powerful. People and organizations were often approaching me to write songs for them. A group called World Neighbors, which teaches third world peoples new farming techniques to assist them in creating more sustainable food sources, contacted me, and I accepted the opportunity to create a theme song for them. 

I trusted guidance and created this song in E minor, centered in the Throat Chakra with a touch of Solar Plexus, to set forth the strong intention of this group to change the world. I gave it more of a percussive, ethnic beat and crafted a melody that rose and fell like the mountains of Peru. It was inspiring in lyric and had a soaring chorus, one that I have always enjoyed hearing and singing. My then wife, Erin, and I provided the vocals and harmonies. 

The group loved it, but it went nowhere on the national be it. I still think it is a great song, and can be used by anyone to inspire conscious action. So use it...and take action to make the changes you see necessary.

Tell me about those neighbors
I am from third world land
The neighbors from the near and far
Who care and understand
Though my people live in poverty
In hunger and disease
We do not seek a handout
It’s training that we need
I have heard that they will share
Work within our towns
Teach new ways to feed ourselves
Make fertile, barren ground
Help improve conditions
That have been beyond our reach
Leave us with our dignity
And skills we too can teach
     So we send our prayers
     Upon the wind
     To the people of all lands
     We call upon our neighbors
     To take our reaching hands
     Send the ones with knowledge
     With Love and simple tools
     And by the Grace of God we’ll rise
     To turn this world we knew
     Around, around
Neighbor helping neighbor
Is such a gentle thought
Through this I see
The peace can come
The one this world has sought
I see self sufficient nations
Living freely ‘neath the sun
What started as World Neighbors
Can spread to everyone
