“Let your heart take courage (waag_aa002_3)” is the third of four pieces by Stephen Briggs that are intended for the season of Advent.
Courage is the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, and the like without fear; It is a quality we need desperately today when we consider all that is happening in our beautiful world. The terrorists and the warmongers want us to fear and every Star Wars fan knows that fear is the path to the dark side:
Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
We need the courage to live without fear … and for us to have courage, we need hope. The time of Advent is all about hope: the hope of a new day.
The four soundscapes that will make up this second “Ambient Advent” collection are designed for contemplation and meditation during what has become a very busy period.
Regardless how you celebrate this period, I hope this piece will give you a sense of peace.
A 320kbps version of this release will be available over on Archive for free with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’ which does include ‘free’. Any monies raised from this track will be donated to charity … more details to follow.
