Luminaries Release New Track "LUMIN8" Featuring Truth-I! Podcast

This past week, our former bandmates and dear friends from L.A., the Luminaries, have released a bumping new track, "LUMIN8," featuring in addition to Lu MCs J Brave, FreeWill, and Amore One, our own Truth-I, along with Lafa Taylor, Marv Ellis, Srikalogy, Seasunz, Kiyoshi, and Everyman... With a diverse display of style, lyricism, and consciousness from MC to MC, this type of posse-cut throws back to such hip-hop classics as A Tribe Called Quest's "Scenario" or Dungeon Family's "Watch for the Hook."  Listen and download on Bandcamp or Soundcloud!

Precession of the Full Moons Begins! aka Random Fact of the Day!  

It's the last full moon of winter, which means spring is almost here! Did you know that this full moon of 3/5 begins a countdown of sorts!? The dates of the next four full moons including today follow the sequence: March 5 April 4 May 3 June 2 July 1!?!  Not saying it means anything or is unprecedented, just kinda cool, and won't happen again for at least 20 years (I didn't look past 2035).  You heard it here, some kind of lift-off happens on the 1st of July, #wherewillyoube!? 

Lyrics for "One and Only" & "Convocation of T.I.M.E."  

 Written in continual revision for nearly the last 10 years until recently completed and performed by Truth-I with musical accompaniment at the Indigenous Soul event in Asheville in December, the lyrics to One and Only, and Convocation of T.I.M.E. are finally up!  It is with great excitement that these pieces are finally up and available to the world!  Both are soon to be recorded and released! Follow the links to the respective text pages...

One and Only is an epic-style poem, a long, stream of consciousness flow that weaves a tale of the narrator's exploration of self in relation to existing spiritual paradigms, and an awakening to the ultimate conclusion that All is One... A piece that feels familiar to many who have also contemplated similar themes.

Convocation of T.I.M.E., a rhythmic oeuvre that lulls the listener/reader to exploring the conventional notions of time and mind, using two core acronyms of the word time to open up a new way of relating to the concept... T.I.M.E can be experienced by each of us as Truth I Manifest Eternally, as well as This Infinite Moment Evermore...

Enjoy!

A Joyful, Healthy, Abundant Year to All! 

Happy New Year!!

May 2015 bring music, health, wisdom, abundance, and continued manifestation of all your visions!!

We're gearing up for a busy year; with new music to record and release, video projects underway, and the goal to get out and tour as much as reasonably possible given that our manager is a toddler and doesn't like to drive very far before getting restless...

In the meantime, Aradhana's got a new ukelele, courtesy of Santa, and for the next couple of cold months, we'll be posted up in the den, bringing new song ideas to life!
 

 
It's a big year for humans, can you feel it?  As we continue to evolve faster than the static, clunky, and elitist mechanisms of our socio-politico-economic systems, the world is ripe for innovation, solutions, teamwork, and heart-centered visionaries to emerge and lead us... go get 'em team!

All love and blessings be with you, 

I,Star Family

I,Star Beyond Coal and Happy Solstice!! 

On Friday, December 19, to kick off this past special winter solstice/new moon weekend, we were honored to partner with Asheville Beyond Coal and Yogis Beyond Coal, to throw Christmas Beyond Coal, an awareness-raising event at Medea's Espresso & Juice Bar in Arden!!  In addition to our percussionist Michal Oliver, our musical family Colin Martin, Nex Millen, and Shamanique also performed, as well as special guests Soham, Shen, and Noah Stockdale making surprise appearances!



While the music was rocking from beginning to end, our ultimate purpose was to lift the vibes of the gathering  and support the increased awareness of Asheville's energy situation and plant the seeds for future collaborative events... Our hosts, Dan and Medea Galligan, and their son Chris, kept the organic, cold-pressed juice flowing and their locally sourced organic food was delicious!

With the venue sitting 3/4 mile north of the Asheville Coal Plant on Lake Julian, the largest polluter and carbon emitter in Western North Carolina,  the evening represented a new step, taking the conversation surrounding this beautiful landscape's energy future to Duke Energy's front door.  Guests were all happy to add their signatures to a petition of thousands to retire the coal plant and urge Duke to find clean, sustainable sources of power.  Presenters Emma Greenbaum, Lisa Sherman, and photographer Mark Schmerling shared the mission of their organizations, with photos and some unfortunate facts on the extent of the environmental impact of coal power plants, from mountaintop removal in Appalachia to the coal ash ponds leeching into the watershed around the region, to the toxic emissions from the plants themselves...

We are proud to stand with Asheville Beyond Coal and hope to see the conversation get much bigger, transcending its often charged and divisive potential, so that we can come together and make choices that benefit all of our children and their descendants!



Further, we believe that though solar and wind power are certainly a step in the right direction by not polluting our environment and generating waste directly, the need for rare earth minerals in these technologies and thus the continued impetus to exploit the natural resources of third world countries by military invasions and extractive industries, makes these often lauded methods transitional at best.  Possibilities for a real solution to clean, renewable energy remain outside the realm of the politicized and profit driven status quo.  Innovation in this field was largely catalyzed by Nikola Tesla nearly a century ago, who believed that limitless power could be drawn from the phenomena of counter-rotating magnetic fields, as well as the ionosphere itself, the atmospheric source of the static electrical discharges we call lightning. As limitless energy from nature does not profit those that prefer to manufacture and sell it, we all know why the capitalists of the 20th century did not support the energy paradigm of decentralized, abundant, and low-cost/free sources. Now a decade and a half into the 21ist century, as the onslaught of public relations campaigns and media rhetoric continue amidst widespread concerns over the consequences of our leaders' historical endemic shortsightedness, it seems fairly preposterous that with the strides humans have made in microchips and other technologies over the last few decades, the computer typing these words is powered by coal burned to boil water, a steam engine method that is literally centuries old!  

Author's note- From my observations, I believe that humans are actually not ready for free energy, as paradoxically, the high cost of energy in today's world serves to slow down the rate at which this civilization consumes. Thus, as we first move towards a shift of consciousness by seeking to know and love ourselves and all life, live in balance with nature, and treasure the forests, mountains, and rivers that we have, perhaps the much needed overunity device that would power a symbiotic global culture will reveal itself...

Peace and blessings to all for a joyous, healthy, abundant holiday season,
Truth-I

Kinnection Campout 2015

 —  —

Deerfields Retreat, Horse Shoe, NC

 

Kinnection Campout 2015 has found its new home at the legendary Deerfields, located just outside of Asheville, NC in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Appalachia!

Event Mission: We believe in the power of integrating the wisdom of traditional tribal culture with the emerging modern visionary culture. The campout is our humble attempt at integrating the power of praying, dancing, and learning into an experience that offers a tangible glimpse into a new way of relating to each other, to ourselves, and to the entire breathing world of which we are part. We look forward to kinnecting with you and the gifts you bring, as we get in touch with our roots and explore together what it means to be a tribe in 2015, complete with electronic bass music, permaculture classes, and medicine songs around the sacred fire.

Stay tuned for full detail announcements...: http://www.kinnectioncampout.org/ https://www.facebook.com/kinnectionevents
