Have you ever found peace in the green room?
Inside the whirling vortex, there is a calm.
The oxygen has been sucked out of the pit, and gravity is absent as well.
There is only perfection--
except it's not the kind of perfection you may think.
It's creative perfection,
where each droplet is working in synch and harmony with every other droplet,
and trillions of droplets are sliding in unison to form--
the perfect wave.
There has never been a wave like this one,
and there will never be again.
Inside the green room--
which is only here in time and space for a mere fifteen seconds,
there is peace.
Inside the green room, you can fly.
Or rather, your soul can fly,
if your body is sitting at home on the couch,
or in your office in front of your computer screen
and your obligations and responsibilities.
In the green room, you can travel to that special place,
where you can be you.
You can travel to that planet of perfection,
where nothing is hard,
where everything is beautiful,
Inside the green room,
your soul lives.
Your soul is at home there
and you are free.
Inside the green room.
