“Spiritual Bypass Song” by Harold Payne

Spiritual Bypass song recap improv Unity of Tustin 8-5-18

Composed and performed by Harold Payne

Intro 1st service
WE can go from class to class and think that we’re learning
And buying books without pages turning
But we’ve got to jump in with both feet
Instead of avoiding the heat
And let the process keep churning Cause what gives light
Must endure burning 

Intro 2nd service
Things are not always what they seem
Sometimes there’s drama behind the scenes
There was a time when men didn’t say what they feel
But it’s time to get real
We’ve got to jump in with both feet
Instead of avoiding the heat
And let the process keep churning Cause what gives light
Must endure burning
You can meditate, cogitate, congregate & medicate
But if you wanna elevate
You’ve got to do the work

Watch out for spiritual bypass
Just glossing over and thinking we’re fine
By owning our shadow we can stand in the light
Making room for our dreams to take flight

Sometimes our backpacks need some rearranging
Knowing our needs are constantly changing
Once the power of our ego becomes a thing of the past
We can move a little further down our spiritual path

Watch out for spiritual bypass
Just glossing over and thinking we’re fine
By owning our shadow we can stand in the light
Making room for our dreams to take flight

It’s a different kind of open heart surgery
We have to speak our truth or commit spiritual perjury
And end up in some kind of metaphysical limbo
And run the risk of being a new thought bimbo

Watch out for spiritual bypass
Just glossing over and thinking we’re fine
By owning our shadow we can stand in the light
Making room for our dreams to take flight

Bridge from first service:
And whenever your focus starts to get blurry
Just remember the words of a bald headed guy from Missouri
And even when we’re pricked by the needles of a metaphorical cactus
Sometimes it’s just metaphysical malpractice

Bridge from 2nd service
Whether you’re all the way for Sydney
Or because you were brought here by Stedney
And even when we’re pricked by the needles of a metaphorical cactus
Sometimes it’s just metaphysical malpractice
