Music


I will be signing copies of The Parable of The Stars at the Clinton Book Shop located at 12 East Main Street in Clinton on Friday, December 9 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

There will be music throughout the event as well.  Come and learn my Christmas song, The Angel Song and the New Jersey Song too!

A. In a Parable, of course!
Perhaps millions of ACIM students have given up on The Course, finding it
too difficult and frustrating to fathom. Most long-time ACIM students,
myself included, have found themselves at a loss for words when
attempting to relate The Course’s message to newer students or the
curious inquirer.

In letting go the wish to be the one to come up with the answer, it came
to me. I asked simply how Jesus would explain his Course, and
 The Parable of the Stars began to take form. I laughed, thinking to
myself “How else would Jesus tell the story?” The gift of this
parable has changed my own life, and those of readers who find its
clarity invaluable in making their way through The Course. Long-time
students report its simplicity helpful in avoiding ego-relapses, and
call it their “go-to book” to share with their loved ones who may be
questioning their sanity. $11.50 + $3.50, S & H. The accompanying
The Parable of the Stars CD, narrated by Lainie Beavin, songs by
John Beavin, and sound effects by Tom Sciro: $10.50 + $3.50, S & H
or book and CD: $19.95 + $3.50, S & H.

The original music in John Beavin’s CD, God Is the Light in Which I See 
complements The Parable of the Stars with songs such as The Forgotten 
Song. Course students will recognize the title song as the title of 
Lesson 44 from the Workbook. Once understood, the “Light” which God 
really is becomes non-threatening to everyone, religious, agnostic 
or atheist. The album is also fun and funny, in keeping with the 
ACIM teaching that all true healing lies in our “remembering to 
laugh at the tiny mad idea” (of separation from The Light, and 
thus, from each other.) $14.95+ $3.50, S & H. Treat yourself to 
all three-The Parable of the Stars book and CD, plus the God Is 
the Light in Which I See for just $29.95 + $3.50 S & H—a 
savings of $7.45.

For those wishing to give these items as gifts, please email 
about discounts for multiple orders.

This is the NJ song I’ve wanted to do for a couple of years.  The great NJ historian, John Cunningham (now 95 yrs. old and still going strong!) was the source of my historical enlightenment.  I’d like to dedicate the song to him.

My song, Puppet Love, is available on Jango starting today.  Jango fans and listeners responding to the contest can leave a message on this post.

“But I could have told you, Vincent, this world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.”

Is this Don McLean speaking to Van Gogh, or is this The Father’s message through Don to all of us?  Is this not the message Jesus gives us in ACIM?

I was fortunate to have saxophonist extraordinaire Bob Keller play on the My body is only a Notion track. It’s available on CD Baby.

During his career spanning over fifty years, he has played with bands such as the Buddy Rich Jazz Orchestra, Chuck Israel’s National Jazz Ensemble and Walk Levinsky’s Great American Swing Band.

Look forward to working again with him in the future.

I love doing Senior Center shows, and going way, way back in my repertoire, jogging memories and listening to the surprised audience members happily singing along!

My most recent performance was at Flemington and it was so much fun!

I have plenty of 60s & 70s music which elicits similar reactions from somewhat younger crowds, and who knows, perhaps one groups needs that freedom of expression as much as the other.

It’s all good, and it’s no fun unless it’s fun!
