Within my heart there’s an impossible jewel Radiating waves from a fathomless pool Within my sight there’s an endless array Opalescent lights in graceful display . . . within my heart It seems so strange I forget who I am I forget my name A luminous flame The opals shine within my eyes Articulating My body opens wide I will not turn from the light . . . within my heart I fix my gaze along the spine of the world Boundaries dissolve in the vortex’s swirls For within my heart There’s an impossible jewel Radiating waves from a fathomless pool And in my sight there’s an endless array Opalescent lights in graceful display The opals shine within my eyes Articulating My body opens wide I will not turn from the light If this is my time to die I will not fight My body opens wide I will not turn from the light

Only One 05:34
Life is a game So many characters on the stage All playing their parts Pieces on the board All trapped in a prison Of who they think they’re supposed to be Everybody searching For a truth that will set them free There is only one Breathing life into all that is There is only one Beating in every heart There is only one Nothing separate or apart There is only one The divine heart of this infinitely beautiful reality So put your fears away Live your life today Trust this is the way It’s all meant to be Let go of all control Relax into the flow Let your heart be free Open up your eyes Let go of all the lies Drop the veil of your best disguise Be just who you are You are a shooting star A spiraling dance of light There is only one . . . Open up your eyes . . . So put your fears away . . . / There is only one . . .

Free 06:30
I want to be free Free in my mind and in my body I’ve got to be free Free from doubt Free to be me

It starts with choice The unfolding of being Setting the fractal gears Into perpetual motion Space and time Life and death All expressions of the ever-changing The individual and many The whole and the parts Particles and waves Numbers receding Beyond the horizon Circuitry of transformation Birthing the real In 3D form Structures of the becoming The algorithms of the eternal game Shape the mask of forever Parading through a hall of mirrors An invitation to uncover . . . Masks of forever Entwined in a game Of self and other To which we attach our names The divine invitation To know who we truly are Resides in our breath And shines in every star I can feel my heart and all I’ve tried to keep in the dark I can allow it to be unprotected, open and free When we can truly see the beauty in everything In all that we love and all we hate and fear Then we will really know what lies beneath The mask of forever, our ideas and beliefs I can feel my heart And all I’ve tried to keep in the dark I can allow it to be Unprotected, open and free I can feel my heart And all I’ve tried to keep in the dark

Beside You 04:43
To be right here beside you There’s nothing else we need to do To feel your breath and your skin This is the life we’re living in This is exactly where I want to be Surrounded by those I love and who love me Nothing to prove, no one to please You be you, and I’ll be me Accepting things as they are Like the crescent moon or a shooting star Even if I could, I wouldn’t change a thing It’s perfect right here like the breath of spring To be right here beside you There’s nothing else we need to do To feel your breath and your skin This is the life we’re living in Falling into your arms again Trusting that I’ll be safe when I open my heart fully to you There’s no holding back this time, it’s true To be right here beside you There’s nothing else we need to do To feel your breath and your skin This is the life we’re living in This is the life we’re living in This is the life we’re living in

Plant a seed and start a fire This Incandescence goes on and on Break down the walls of all illusion Illumination has come for all In these times of mass confusion We hold the tools of our evolution Crystal keys that bring a revelation So let the truth be told The earth it has so many medications To heal the heart and free the mind Their magic lies in their molecular formation A gift so divine To open the heart, drop the protections Expose the façade of the incarceration We are free as our birthright To know the True Self As Infinite Light Plant a seed and start a fire This Incandescence goes on and on Break down the walls of all illusions Illumination has come for all We are free as our birthright To know the True Self As Infinite Light All masks hide the One within It is not other It is a truth that’s ours to find and discover, so, Plant a seed and start a fire This Incandescence goes on and on Break down the walls of all illusion Illumination has come for all We are free as our birthright To know the True Self As Infinite Light So, plant a seed . . .

I’ve held myself down for far too long Afraid of what I’d say if I sang my own song Doubting I could be true to the words in my heart Finding the courage at last to simply start Learning to love myself is the challenge of my life Healing all of the wounds I’ve tried to hide Letting go of the critic in my mind Releasing all of the energies I’ve tried to bind The time has come to open my wings Leap from the edge and forget everything Soar high above the earth far below Embracing the endless sky My feathers are light and my wings are strong With the breath of love I am carried along To find my true place and to sing my song I’ll tell you a secret Life is a mirror and all that we see Comes from the same source The illusion of you – the illusion of me The world is a playground Filled with wonders and tragedies It’s The One Song that sings all into being . . . embracing the endless sky The time has come to open my wings . . . I’ll tell you a secret . . .

Every time I see your face I’m transported to another time and place To a space where we are one And everyone knows who they are under the sun And every time I see you smile at me I get lost, so lost in love for a while You’re the one I want next to me Through it all you are my love You let me be And everything I know is changing Letting our love grow is so enlightening And everything I need is here in front of me Oh, we both know our love is the real thing And every time I touch your skin I remember who I am again No illusions, nothing in between Through it all you are my love, you let me be And when I lost it all You were there to brake my fall And everything I know is changing Letting our love grow is so enlightening And everything I need is here in front of me Oh, we both know our love is the real thing

Let’s do the dirty work – with a smile Let’s do the dirty work – doing the work with style It’s time to dive right in, get it done Let’s all clean up the place, and have some fun The party started such a long time ago And people had their fun, don’t you know? Dynasties rise, and empires fall But life goes on and on in the midst of it all Religion and belief gave us identity But we drank poison from the roots of that tree We turned to war and hate to feed our fears Look where it’s brought us after all these years Now we’ve trashed the place, made such a mess Let’s set our selves aside, and be our very best Roll up our sleeves, and use our backs Get Spaceship Earth spinning down the right tracks It’s not the time to fortify the lines Believe illusions that divide our minds And keep us separate in these healing times There’s too damn much work to do to remain blissfully blind There’s just one planet that we’re living on And every one of us has helped to spawn The trials that we face in our society Come together for a new reality Take the holy books down from the shelf Write a new story for our selves No heaven and no hell to fear or crave Now we’ve escaped from Plato’s cave Let’s do the dirty work Let’s do the dirty work Let’s do the dirty work – with a smile Let’s do the dirty work – doing the work with style It’s time to dive right in, get it done Let’s all clean up the place, and have some fun Let’s do the dirty work – with a smile Let’s do the dirty work – doing the work with style Life goes on and on and on . . .

Chant along if you like: Dance around the fire In the pale moon light Dance around the fire With the embers burning bright Dance around the fire Let your passions run Dance around the fire ‘Till the coming of the sun

Unbelievable 04:55
It’s so unbelievable That’s how I feel when I’m with you It’s so unbelievable To know that love is the only truth It’s so unbelievable These are the days of love and truth It’s so unbelievable Once there was a time I was lost within my mind, lost within my mind Once I used to think I deserved to be on the brink But now that I have found Love overflowing, flowing all around I know I can be A force for love and reality It’s up to each one of us To trust in the process Of shedding our skins Open up to the light within Embrace our lives, let it begin Leave all our fears behind Trust in the fact that this is the time To claim our birthright as Children of reality, fractals of infinity It’s so unbelievable It’s so unbelievable It’s up to each one of us To trust in the process Of shedding our skins Open up to the light within Embrace our lives, let it begin Leave all our fears behind Trust in the fact that this is the time To claim our birthright as Children of reality, fractals of infinity It’s so unbelievable That’s how I feel when I’m with you It’s so unbelievable To know that love is the only truth It’s so unbelievable These are the days of love and truth It’s so unbelievable

about

Twelve richly textured tracks grace this third album by Fractal Love Jam, the husband and wife musical team of Martin Ball and Jessalynn Jones (album released on their 8th wedding anniversary!). For "Particles & Waves," FLJ pushes their unique style of electronic dance music with alternative, reggae, and world influences into new and increasingly beautiful musical territory, showcasing Jessalynn's vocal abilities and unique tone with layers of harmonies and soaring melodies, all backed by Martin's compelling and driven sense of musicality. Layers of keyboards and acoustic and electric guitars create complex tapestries of rhythm and sound paired with lyrics that reflect Martin and Jessalynn's commitment to inspiring their listeners with songs of love, truth, and the unitary nature of being. These songs are a celebration and call to self-awareness and personal transformation, embracing the reality that we are all one. Living with an open and loving heart is easy when you've got a great soundtrack such as this to keep you dancing and moving to the rhythms of life and love.

About the songs: The album starts off with the mysterious and powerful "Opalescent Concrescence," and then gets right to the heart of the matter with the uplifting and beautiful, "Only One," an anthem to nonduality and unitary being. With "Free," FLJ dives deep into dub and psychedelic EDM. "Mask of Forever" lets Jessalynn's vocals soar, followed by the comforting love song of "Beside You," an ode to being loved just as you are, effortlessly and naturally. With "Incandescence" the music shifts back into reggae/EDM/world fusion, an anthem of illumination and global transformation. "Embracing the Endless Sky" celebrates personal awakening and freedom with a cool electronic/alternative vibe with shimmering guitars and catchy melodies. "The Real Thing" gets to the love shared between Jessalynn and Martin, and "Doing the Work With Style" is a global call to setting attachment to past aside and moving into a responsible future collectively. "Embers" gets the beat pumping with a world fusion/EDM vibe. "Unbelievable" is an all-out celebratory dance number, wrapping up the fundamental message of the album. As a bonus, the instrumental orchestral track of "The Swelling of the Moon" rounds out FLJ's 3rd album in beauty and style.
