From the recording Lotus
True and Clear is a samba that Isabella wrote when she was fifteen. The lyrics are heavily influenced by the Buddhist teachings of unconditional love and perseverance. The Buddha taught that we all have Buddha nature, or the capacity for unconditional love, compassion, and wisdom. True and Clear is Isabella’s way of expressing that. In the title True and Clear “True” represents unconditional love and “Clear” represents wisdom. The combination of the two is vital to Isabella as she strives to be true and clear everyday.
