Be the Light

Oct 01, 2021

We are honored to be invited to partner with Ali Youssefi in the production of 'Be the Light' featuring Karim Campbell Rushdy. The video was released at The Virtues Project 30th year anniversary.

Be the Light’ reflects on the importance of growing our own inner light - our virtues - shedding that light into the world and helping others do the same.

Ali Youssefi's music springs from the belief that humanity is one family and that music can help elevate our consciousness, helping us feel more connected to our purpose and each other. Click the link to watch, listen, and become a Patron.✨

Lyrics

help me to be caring and loving
help me to see the beauty in the world
with hope to succeed I'll keep trying and trying
help me to bring some good to the world
so help me to be the light that's in me.

be brave and let your light through
illuminate the sky like the stars do
be brave, shine through.

(rap)
help me to be
the light that i see
deep within me
so i can shine constantly
in a world that's so dark
I'm trying to open up my heart
can you imagine this flame
that can grow from one spark
I don't know what else to say
except that today
I'm living my life like this light never goes away
forever gonna make my eyes illuminate
have you ever seen the night turn into day?
it's the definition of how me and you can change.
give it just a minute - we are living in it
infinite design; isn't it exquisite.
open up the heart - there's gems hidden in it
always time to start never time to finish
so now is the
time to...

be brave and let your light through
illuminate the sky like the stars do
be brave, shine through.

hidden within are a myriad virtues
these luminous gems of immeasurable worth
and as we educate we alleviate
all the pain of our troubled world
and enable mankind to grow."
