Traveling Light by Mustafa Davis


I got this wonderful video link from facebook and got amazed. It’s amazing! I loved this video. The playing of lights… The colors of light just spellbound me for minutes. I was lost in the lights, the colors and their vibration in my mind. That was an exclusive feeling! The background music and the lyric are also nice!

The video was taken by Mustafa Davis. Being interested, I googled about him and found his website. Here is the link to know about the creator of this video.


Mustafa Davis said about this video:

I created this piece to visually portray the emotive experience of being a traveler. The footage is from three separate locations throughout the world (California, New York, and Stockholm) blended together in a single shot. When on the road, days and hours blend together and life can become a blur… a sort of montage of thoughts and memories that are often more dreamlike than real.

I’m often on the road 3 weeks out the month and so much of my time is spent in physical transit from one place to the next. Travel is a means of obtaining light on our spiritual journey but often that light is masked in the darkness and difficulty of life on the road. We do not realize that its light at all until after the journey has come to an end and we begin to reflect on where we’ve been. But the travelers reflections are never still because as he reflects on where he has been, he is already going somewhere new… so the lights and darkness and blur of memories is constant, never-ending. This video is a visual representation of the emotional state of travel… blending lights, darkness, and constant, unceasing movement.

Amir Sulaiman gave the voice in the background of this video. I got the lyric of Amir Sulaiman from the youtube. I am copying them in here. [ Source: Youtube link ]

::: LYRICS:::

Although time and space
have displaced us
i know we are not in different places
As I speak this I am racing
Running
Although my feet won’t touch the pavement
Yet as you hear this I am running
Racing

its hard to pen a poem
my body still
my heart has a heart of its own
its left me and made its way
alone
on its own
to your home
to its home

my love is racing to you
running
until you can feel its traces through you
racing running to you

i have no knowledge of the book
yet even the Ifrit couldn’t cover the distance
That my light my love
Is covering this instant

as i speak this
my love is racing running
as you hear this
my heart is racing coming

should i be more patient
but im not much for waiting
when my every waking
moment
is facing
your face

while i speak this
im racing
as you hear this
im running

my heart is racing running
to you
