David Lacopo is a spiritual teacher, meditation master and shaman. He woke with an angel by his side after experiencing the Dark Night of the Soul in his early childhood, and as the angel lowered a sphere of Divine Light upon his head, his mind filled with Divine knowledge. These angelic experiences have continued regularly throughout his life and have guided him on a spiritual journey to guide others towards higher states of consciousness.
Raising Our State of Consciousness to Fulfill Our Soul’s Growth
Tarot is greatly misunderstood and mostly associated with divination, but its true purpose moves far beyond the realm of fortune telling; it is a powerful tool that can be used for personal development, gaining wisdom and understanding, and raising our state of consciousness. Tarot can also help restore and maintain our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance.
This book holds a collection of personal experiences, Divine knowledge received from my personal guide and spiritual mentor, and spiritual growth exercises that will set you on your path to fulfill your soul’s growth. It also includes enlightening exercises as working with the letters of the Hebrew alphabet to manifest positive changes within and working with the Kabbalah (The Tree of Life) to understand and improve human relationships.
"Out of the eater came something to eat, out of the strong came something sweet." -Samson
Two experiences inspired me to start working on this project: a conversation with Bono and the story of Samson.
A Conversation with Bono
I met Bono several years ago; we mostly talked about music and how much of an inspiration he had been to me. I was star struck and the moment felt as if it had lasted several hours, but reality set in and Bono left me with his words of wisdom: “Always keep the wheels on the bus rolling.”
Not long after, my bandmates and I were chosen to perform as the opening act for Bon Jovi. The path was set and the bus was rolling smoothly; it was actually rolling pretty fast and as my bandmates and I were captivated by the blurring scenery around us and lost track of who we were and what our dream truly was.
After 21 years of chasing my dream, I realized that it wasn’t about reaching a destination, the dream had been with us all along; we had a bond, we had friendship, we shared our most intimate stories together, we had trust, we had music, and we had become a family. This awakening made me realize how music is just a different rendition of love; it’s not about fame and fortune or anything else the industry portrayed it to be. Music brought us together.
The Story of Samson
I then came across the story of Samson and was deeply captivated by it; I read the story over and over again until it sank deep into my soul and inspired me to compose a poetic album musically illustrating Samson’s life. Why poetic? I wanted to keep it simple and beautiful and as simple words carefully crafted together can create great emotional repercussions, I believed musical notes carefully crafted into melodies and rhythms can also have the same emotional repercussions. 12 instrumental songs were finally composed each representing a chapter in Samson’s life and as a reader reads a poem with his own voice, musicians can perform these poetic songs in their own style and sound.
