This is a very different type of episode from the previous two I completed.  This is the first of the stories set in India and is very mood oriented, and I tried to capture that mood the best I could.  I will apologize for most of these sound clips being on the long side, but I thought it was the best way to give you the true feel of the episode.  As always, please let me know what ya think. -

  1. Aiden-  ...and inhale...slowly through the nose and..and..and......exhale...slowly down. Concentrate on the breathing only...good...good!   Gabrielle- I've never concentrated on just breathing before.   Aiden- Who ever does?  But that's exactly where it starts, from a single breath.  Without breath, there is no life, right?  Gabrielle- right...  358kb wav or 323kb mp3
  2. Aiden-  Gabrielle...may I, a small warning.  These breathing techniques, the meditational techniques I'm teaching you, the whole approach to an inner stillness.  It could stir up some thoughts and feelings that you didn't even know you have.  Some of them, not so nice.  Gabrielle- I'm game if you are.  Aiden- Good.  245kb wav or 219kb mp3
  3. Aiden- You wanna heal the world, right? And I believe you can, but first you've got to heal yourself.  It's gonna be hard, but that's the only way you're going to access that power.  Gabrielle- You're saying that if I do this, that I can create a perfect world just by thinking it.  Aiden- Exactly. Once you tap into that inner stillness, you can do absolutely anything.  You just envision it...and make it real.  294kb wav or 261kb mp3
  4. Aiden- Whatever it was that you saw or felt, it's just the past.   The past has no power if you face it. Facing it gives you the power.  94kb wav or 89kb mp3
  5. Aiden- How are you feeling?  Gabrielle- Lighter, much lighter.  Aiden- Excellent, excellent!   That's it!  That's the core you that's surfacing.  Releasing all that pain and guilt helped free it.  And the longer you stay here, the stronger it will get until there's nothing left but your pure essence...a radiant light.  Gabrielle- What if it's not radiant?  What if it's darker?  266kb wav or 237kb mp3
  6. Aiden- You're worried about Xena, aren't you?  Well ,you must let that go...a blind mad could see that she has got her dark side, I did too.  But I beat it...and so can she.  Gabrielle- How can you be so sure?   Aiden- Because she has powerful  198kb wav or 178kb mp3

  8. Aiden- Sink still...still as stone...still as death...  Xena- Let her go!  Aiden- You're too late...she's too deep.  See for yourself.  Soon I'll drain her completely. [Xena gets tossed around by Aiden]  Xena- C'mon - fight me!   [Xena gets tossed around by Aiden- again] 861kb wav or 713kb mp3
  9. Aiden- What goodness can I gain...what little light is left in your dark soul to make me stronger?  88kb wav or 83kb mp3
  10. Gabrielle- Local legends say that these mountains are a holy place.  Xena- Na na na na na...I don't care about the local legends.  I'm talking about the local folks who tried to cut us up in the pass.  Gabrielle- Oh, I'd apologize...again.   Truth is I think you enjoyed it.  Xena- Having my leg gashed open?  Gabrielle- Having a good reason to bust some head.  270kb wav or 240kb mp3
  11. Gabrielle- You smiled.  Xena- What?  Gabrielle- When that big guy came at you and you tossed him into the other three, you smiled.  Xena- I winced, he was big.  Gabrielle- You smiled.  Xena- I was relieved!  Gabrielle- You still smiled.  171kb wav or 156kb mp3
  12. Gabrielle- It's funny...we come to places like this...ya know, spiritual places looking for some sort of answer...makes you wonder.   Xena- Wonder - why?  Gabrielle- Instead of reaching out, maybe we should be looking in.  191kb wav or 144kb mp3
  13. Gabrielle- Was it that vision again?  Xena, would you just forget that.  You always say that we control our own destiny, right?   Xena- Right...  120kb wav or 112kb mp3
  14. Gabrielle- What happened?  Xena?  I fell down a hole...?  Xena- Yeah, what is it with you and holes?   Look!  My's gone!  329kb wav or 286kb mp3
  15. Gabrielle- Where are we?  Xena- Good question.  Gabrielle- Do you know what this place reminds me of?  Xena- Illusia.  But so far the only music I've heard is the birds singing.  Gabrielle- Xena - do you think we're dead?  323kb wav or 281kb mp3
  16. Gabrielle- It's beautiful!  Xena- Yeah, in that...yucky, I'm in paradise kinda way.  63kb wav or 62kb mp3
  17. Gabrielle- If Aiden did this...he's got talent.   Xena- And a whole lot of time on his hands.  Gabrielle- They're so unusual.  The poses...the color.  Look - What do ya think?  Xena- Without a face it could be anyone.  Aiden- Exactly.  You see these figures represent the ultimate inner peace.  Something anyone can achieve.   Xena- Don't bet the farm on it.  Gabrielle- She means, it's easier for some as it is for others.  Aiden- Very true.  It took me almost ten years, but my demons ran deep.  You can't get rid of those overnight, but you can eventually release them.  I'm living proof.  I'm Aiden, and you are?  Xena- Xena...and this is my friend Gabrielle Aiden- Welcome to my home.   578kb wav or 505kb mp3
  18. Gabrielle- Gods, this is bliss.  Xena- How long do ya think we've been in here...I'm pruning.  Gabrielle- Would you relax.  Aiden's right - you just need to slow down.  263kb wav or 235kb mp3
  19. Gabrielle- Ya know I'm surprised at you Xena...   Xena- Why?  Gabrielle- For someone who's seen what Lau Mah and Alti can do, it's strange you're not curious about Aiden.   Xena- I've seen enough to know that most people can't handle spiritual powers, and Aiden is no Lau Mah.  Gabrielle- Yeah, he's a bit odd.  That doesn't mean you can't learn something from him.  I'm going to ask him to teach his breathing techniques.  Will you come with me?  Xena- Thanks, but I've been breathing just fine on my own for years now.  Well ya know, I could give him another chance...after all the guy did heal my legGabrielle- It's mighty big of you Xena.  453kb wav or 398kb mp3
  20. Gabrielle- I feel like some power has just poured new life into me.  [That's what I'm going to call her...Hope].   I guess that was one of those thoughts that you warned me about.  Aiden- Maybe we should stop?  Gabrielle- Why?  Aiden- To really do reach that inner're going to have to clear a path and that means facing whatever comes up,  and just releasing it.  Gabrielle- You don't know what I carry...and to face that...  Aiden- I know , I know, it feels like a burning fire inside doesn't it?  I lost my wife and child too.  Gabrielle- I'm sorry.  Aiden- The thing is...facing that pain and coming to terms with it and then releasing's allowed me to do all this.  568kb wav or 494kb mp3
  21. Gabrielle- Can I teach others to do this?  Xena?   Aiden- Guaranteed.  See you're good person, and this place can help draw that goodness from you.  Here you can become what you really are deep down inside...everyone does.  We strip away all the layers, and all that's left is your core-self.  The real you.   253kb wav or 226kb mp3
  22. Gabrielle- Xena...I've been looking all over for you.  Are you alright?  Xena- Sure, why wouldn't I be?   Gabrielle- It's just...Aiden says that you could be in some trouble.  It's because of your dark side and he says it could get bleeding, delusions, physical changes.  Xena- Really...well I'll be sure and keep you posted.  Gabrielle- Are you sure you're ok?  366kb wav or 325kb mp3
  23. Gabrielle- I feel so light right now and I know I could show you how to get there if you want.  Xena- Know I want?  Know I want?  [Gabrielle- What are you doing?  Xena- What I want.  Gabrielle- Stop it Xena , that hurts. Xena- I'll show ya what I want! Gabrielle-   It hurts! It hurts!  Stop!!]  Xena?  Xena- What?  Gabrielle- I asked if you want me to teach you what I've learned.  Xena- Some other time, huh.  Gabrielle- Ok...if you need anything...  Xena- I'll come find ya, thanks.   423kb wav or 373kb mp3

  26. Garr- Wha...what happened?  Xena- You're free now.  Aiden's gone, unfortunately, so are your men.  Garr- My men died years ago.  Permanently pacified by Aiden.  He'd done the same to me, but I saw though his illusions and I fought him!  He must have drove me mad.   Xena- Well, that's what kept you alive.  Aiden wasn't able to steal your mind, you embraced your demons, and they saved you.  To survive, I knew I'd have to do the same, even if it meant scaring you to get a rise out of Gabrielle.   Gabrielle- You attacked him on purpose?  Xena- I knew no matter far under you were, you'd never let me take an innocent life.  Garr- Well just as well for me it worked...I'm free!?  I've got a wife...I've got kids...Oh, Oh, thank you...thank you!  Freedom!  Gabrielle-   I learned something about myself, and you?  Xena- Yeah...   Gabrielle- I sometimes talk about your darkness, like it's some sort of disease, but without it we would have never made it out of here.  It's kind of ironic.  Xena- Yeah...  Gabrielle- Do I really have hands like a sailor?  1,057kb wav or 913kb mp3

I saw what inner peace did for Lau Mah.  Aiden's way seems so numbing.  Gabrielle- I was skeptical...until I tried it.   It was incredible.  I realized I never came to terms with my failure as a mother.  I kept the guilt in my heart.  Xena- You did the only thing you could do...there wasn't a choice.  Gabrielle- It didn't make it any easier.  Today, I faced that pain...I let it go.  I feel so clear, so light...I wish you could experience that.  Xena- Well, apparently my mind is just too active.  Isn't that what he said?  Gabrielle- All you have to do is look at this place to see that it works.  It's perfect.  Xena- There's one thing I've learned, is that anything that looks too good to be true, usually is.  Gabrielle- I wish you could see how right this feels for me.  How free.  Xena- Another day, huh?   Well, I guess it won't kill me.  Gabrielle- Thank you.   1,592kb wav or 1,371kb mp3
