“For light I go directly to the Source of light, not to any of the reflections.”
A peace pilgrims quote.

Follow the sun is something I say often. I was most pleased when Xavier Rudd released his album called Follow the sun.
The sun is there for our health and it has been given the biggest baddest rap in all of modern history and I really feel like I am here to tell anyone who will listen to go and look at the sun at dawn for a few seconds and see if this helps.

Follow The Sun is the essence of Xavier Rudd's spiritual connection to this world: his humble understanding that everything was here before us and will remain long after we are gone, and that every day is a new gift to cherish and to respect.
As a song-writer, Xavier Rudd has always been able to place complex ideas into heartfelt words with a universal simplicity. Having covered vast musical ground with his previous albums, Follow The Sun is the familiar sound of Rudd's earlier work as an ambidextrous solo artist. His voice, his guitar and his message; carried along with gentle rhythms and musical textures.
Beautifully organic and understated, Rudd's delivery of Follow The Sun is a reiteration of the song's theme that no matter what our religion or our blood lines are in this world, taking a moment or a breath, to respect and acknowledge the flow of energy around us, is vital nourishment for our own souls.
Follow The Sun invites us to leave our own distractions – the congestion of thoughts that keep us locked in our minds every waking minute – and to not let each day pass us by. To take notice and be thankful of the beauty of our great mother and our connection to her. That the most overlooked of things – each day's sun and moon, the winds and the tides, the creatures that fill our skies and oceans... that these things are the truth. They are conduits of an ever-flowing energy that society teaches us as humans to disconnect from, when in fact they are the things we need to be connected to the most
