A short Inside view on Compassionate Being:

Sometimes the path of a human being takes a sudden shift. Although at times unpleasant and jerking you out of your comfort zone, a realignment with the potentials of the true self might be necessary. Both of us went through this realignment during the making of this album. Old fears resurfaced and ways of clinging onto old patterns were exposed, sometimes by an almost blinding light. Other people were pushing our buttons in such a way that primal pain was triggered. At the end of the day when all is said and done the question remains: ''how much compassion can you feel for those beings and circumstances who showed you a mirror that reflected your darkest aspects?''.
The sudden shifts are mirrored by the music of this album. Quite sudden the atmosphere changes almost 90 degrees and one is nudged to adapt to the new direction that unfolds. At each new turn an old layer is peeled away so that the remainder of the journey can be experienced through new eyes.
