This song came to me in a dream.  In the dream, I was walking down a city street and felt drawn to go into a temple that I happened to be walking by.  It was full of people, but two women made a space for me to sit between them and took my hands as the whole congregation began to sing.  As they sang, I simultaneously felt both the pain of the entire world as well as a feeling of utter peace.  It was a profoundly moving experience in the dream, and when I woke up, that feeling remained with me.  This song is a tiny part of the song that I could remember hearing in the dream (it was much more elaborate in the dream, but I couldn’t hear it all again once I woke up, but remembered the feeling I had while listening to it).
