Best Earth Day Song: Conviction of The Heart by Kenny Loggins.
This song inspired me to give back to society and is a favorite song in my personal effectiveness workshop “Papillon Metamorphosis Personal Effectiveness” PowerCamp. This song is not just about being one with the Earth but about giving love with the conviction of the heart.
The guy who introduced me to this song and the incredible album Leap of Faith by Kenny Loggins, told straight to me face that I did not have the conviction of the heart. That accusation haunted me for years, especially at times when I was in deep despair or depression. But it also challenged me to be the best.
Now 20 years later as I reflect back I can finally say that I have conviction of the heart – much owing to my Twin Soul, Brenda.
BTW, I chose one of the songs in the Leap of Faith album for Brenda’s personal song in my first personal growth workshop I designed called Rainbow Master. It’s called Too Early for the Sun – the longest song in the album (8:06 minutes). This song became my love song for Brenda which was played at our wedding ritual.

“Conviction Of The Heart”
Lyrics by Kenny Loggins
Where are the dreams that we once had?
This is the time to bring them back.
What were the promises caught on the tips of our tongues?
Do we forget or forgive?
There’s a whole other life waiting to be lived when…
One day we’re brave enough
To talk with Conviction of the Heart.
And down your streets I’ve walked alone,
As if my feet were not my own
Such is the path I chose, doors I have opened and closed
I’m tired of living this life,
Fooling myself, believing we’re right, when…
I’ve never given love
With any Conviction of the Heart
One with the earth, with the sky
One with everything in life
I believe we’ll survive
If we only try…
How long must we wait to change
This world bound in chains that we live in
To know what it is to forgive,
And be forgiven?
It’s been too many years of taking now.
Isn’t it time to stop somehow?
Air that’s too angry to breathe, water our children can’t drink
You’ve heard it hundreds of times
You say your aware, believe, and you care, but…
Do you care enough
To talk with Conviction of the Heart?
