What Humans Can Do Is Incredible

What humans can do is absolutely incredible. What they will often do can be disappointing. However, when looking at what makes an illuminated human, it is someone who is full on in their art – sharing their gift with full fervor and power for the world to see. I’m happy to say I’m now on that path as well – but I wanted to share with you two people who are doing it at a high level. I can guarantee you that these two people have challenges in life just like you do. But they are sharing their art with the world and it’s amazing!

Here is the song Baba Yetu – which I first heard from a computer game of all things – Civilication 4 :) It is sung by the talented musicians Malukah and Peter Hollens. Their work is inspiring and makes me feel happy :).

    1. Hi Karla! I believe the song is the Lord’s prayer or a prayer to God of some kind in Swahili (or something like that), but not totally sure as I’m not terribly religious :). It was done as the intro to a computer game, Civilization 4. Here is the translation (I found it online – who knows, maybe it was all made up. I took it from here: http://apolyton.net/showthread.php/140531-Translation-of-Baba-Yetu).

      CHORUS
      Baba yetu, yetu uliye
      Mbinguni yetu, yetu, amina!
      Baba yetu, yetu, uliye
      Jina lako litukuzwe.
      (x2)

      Utupe leo chakula chetu
      Tunachohitaji utusamehe
      Makosa yetu, hey!
      Kama nasi tunavyowasamehe
      Waliotukosea usitutie
      Katika majaribu, lakini
      Utuokoe, na yule, milelea milele!

      CHORUS

      Ufalme wako ufike utakalo
      Lifanyike duniani kama mbinguni. (Amina)

      CHORUS

      Utupe leo chakula chetu
      Tunachohitaji utusamehe
      Makosa yetu, hey!
      Kama nasi tunavyowasamehe
      Waliotukosea usitutie
      Katika majaribu, lakini
      Utuokoe, na yule, simovu mwehu (?)

      Baba yetu, yetu, uliye
      Jina lako litukuzwe.
      (x2)

      Here is a rough translation. Everything is mixed around, so I had to compensate. Tin added a bunch of extra “yetu”‘s (“our”‘s), so I took them out in the translation. I didn’t understand some of the grammar, so I looked up key words in a dictionary and pasted corresponding Lord’s Prayer from NKJ version of the Bible.

      Quote:
      CHORUS
      Our Father, Jesus, who art
      in Heaven. Amen!
      Our Father, Jesus
      Hallowed be thy name.
      (x2)

      Give us this day our daily bread,
      Forgive us of
      our trespasses
      As we forgive others
      Who tresspass against us
      Lead us not into temptation, but
      deliver us from Evil, and you are forever and ever!

      CHORUS

      Your kingdom come, your will be done
      On Earth as it is in Heaven. (Amen)

      CHORUS

      Give us this day our daily bread,
      Forgive us of
      our trespasses
      As we forgive others
      Who tresspass against us
      Lead us not into temptation, but
      deliver us from Evil, and you wake the dead (?)

      Our Father, Jesus who art…
      Hallowed be thy name.
      (x2)
