YHVH BY AUBS.
I created the visuals and animated this video for AUBS, here is what he has to say about the song: So one morning I was doing s guided meditation and found myself stuck on one phrase of this meditation, "i'm the center to my solar system." I sat with that all day and made it my mantra. At the time, and all the more now, it reminded me how to truly be in it, and not of it. Like whenever my balance feels thrown off by depression, anxiety, stress, ego, I would understand that this feeling does not reflect the Truth of my identity; which is Centered. I can only be thrown off if I let the illusions of life become a reality. This song, still to this day, is a meditation for me. It is my reminder that my Being transcends everything that this world will ever provide. I need not to cling onto things to feel fulfilled, nor do I have to participate in the rat races we all find ourselves in; whether that be chasing American Dream isms, or sprinting after opportunities that will require us to trip other people along the way. I can let go. You can let go. We can let go, and Breathe (YHVH). Be In It, Not Of It. Big Thank You to Sleepy Gallows Studios for creating a visual that is a reflection of who I Am in my Fullness.
