Great Music lifts the Soul….

We need moments to refresh, put down the worries, reflect, it’s not a diagnosis, it’s like cleaning the desk at work, or the bathroom at home, there is stuff we need to do. With so much happening in the world, the mind becomes overloaded, and if we don’t give it a break, we can overreact, becoming ultra sensitive, till eventually we are programmed in our responses. We join causes without thinking deeply about what we are getting involved in, in a nutshell, we become pawns in other life dramas. It’s the new year, time for starting the new, it could be a change of relationship, it could be the end of one, the beginning of something new.

 

Being human, we are sensitive, even if many pretend otherwise. you put on a few pounds, a crisis, the pants it tighter, the thing is, after the season of Christmas, we are all in a tighter squeeze, well, it could be any festival time, but human beings tend to worry easily. In an effort to relax the mind at crucial times, apart from trying the booze, that is meant to be a joke actually, but the music of all types allows you time to get out of the worry zone. So I am throwing in a few middle of the road classics, that will just do that. In times of great stress, you are easily upset or worried. The sheep only have to smell the wolf to get the panic attack, and there are many other there, who know how to exploit your feelings. Listening to music helps you set the mind, like poetry, it lets you forget the world, you forget fashion, you forget social media worries, you forget your mobile phone.  Start your day with great music, and be surprised, amen.

When you can bypass the mind, you can access the heart. happy new year!.

Ten Years

Must I live with confusion all around, even the news, it’s weird sometimes, and they repeat it every hour, have we lost of minds he says, the child psychiatrist nods his head, he is paid to listen. Did they give you mobile phones in your day asks the kid, he is being smart, he already knows the answer: if anyone in those times offered one to a small child, they’d probably be arrested, the expert nods, he is paid to listen, how about time with your parents, i bet they spent time with you, the expert nods, this kid has a lot of questions, and is doing all the talking, how about the fear of guns in schools, i bet you never had that either, the expert nods, yep, yep, yep, how about the pressure of bullying on your mobile, you never had that, the psychiatrist nods, well son, in our days, we bullied face to face, how did it feel asks the kid, no one likes it says the expert, then why can’t anyone do anything about asks the kid, human nature the expert says.

He is getting tired of all the accusations, this child is right, and I suppose addiction wasn’t as common place as now, the expert nods, he is now the one getting the education. As for money, you can print that stuff, the expert nods, yes we can, and all those wars that started over oil, what was that about, it only made enemies of ours all over the world. The expert checks the time, when is my next appointment he says, the kid consults his diary, I’m free

 

Friday after three, but it has to be quick, there is a ball game i have to watch, my father is playing in it. Ten years, should have stayed a kid a little longer.

Solomon smiled, children teach us so much, just as was said over 2,000 years ago. What next.

Islam, Christianity, Judaism…ICJ

The book, Islam, it’s all about love, protecting the faith, five basic tenets, it’s not the extremism so readily reported, its’ not the extreme examples reported, the KKK claim to be Christian too, muddied by the greed of business, demonized by the press, it is a way to the Kingdom of God.

Jesus, regularly mentioned in the Book too, Abraham too, we are of God, it’s the story of the good Samaritan, as told by Jesus, your deeds and your heart is who you are, not the texts you read, it’s as simple as love.

2019, the world is changing fast, new sense of awareness, bridges being built, Jesus being the central character, unites all the true faiths. Those who love are compassionate first, understanding of others, they listen, they don’t agitate, they don’t create division, they seek ways to build relationships.

The early believers, the followers of Jesus, the children of Abraham, met with fierce opposition, they challenged the power base, so they were in fear much of the time. 2,020 years later, whether it’s a week difference, a month, it does not matter, love is not an exact science, it’s an action.

The Challenge in the year ahead, connecting the common threads between all believers. I may not eat sushi, it doesn’t mean others can’t. In a world lost in translation, we need to get back to the very basics, and agree on the fundamentals, amen.

Solomon saw the signs in the Sky, and more, the heavenly powers were moving, and down on earth, they needed to move hearts, and quickly, amen.

Pablo Escobar

Billions spent on the search, minds applied, technology deployed, resources unlimited, congress approved, when they are interested, there is no shortage of effort, wish the same effort was applied to social needs, they probably just forgot, meanwhile, many years after his death, record levels of drug use across the planet, more and more getting addicted to the gadget by the day, children under more stress than ever, the environment quaking at the seems, sounds as if they spent too much time on Pablo, the cheers that went up in some places the day he died, hardly a breath today, a case of bad management, would you not say. Being poor, it is a struggle, as those in the comfy seats never move aside, while those with the wealth, only want more.

Meanwhile, the technology gained from the death camp experiments in Germany during the great war, used to create the nuclear device, the means of our quick disposal, in the hands of some unsteady men, Pablo understood them better than most. Before the critic in you responds, I don’t advocate drug use, it’s all over the place as we write, it’s just a case of stating what is correct, happy new year, amen.

 

Why Me Lord…..

The question, the tragedy, the answers, no one can provide them, why me Lord, about to face death, bodies on bodies, children, men, women, stacked in heaps, she looks at the human misery, she is about to join them, has prayed all her life, a shot rings out, will someone pass the ketchup please, she falls, lies among the dead. her Spirit leaves her body, joins the world of eternity.  Years later, those trying to undermine Love, damage trust, trying to create the desire for only earthly things, thereby undermining the well being of Spirit and our connection with the world above, speak out in protest, why her Lord.

God sighs, I’m not an arms manufacturer, free will was your gift, it wasn’t forced on you, I sent along prophets, to remind you, there is light and dark, even child birth is painful. The critic replies, but why so many, how was it allowed to happen. Experience, is the father and mother of wisdom, when it hurts we remember, when it’s pure pleasure we want it more, it’s not black and white, and everyone living is playing a vital role. You want to enter Heaven, nice words, but it requires an effort, and that’s what your life is all about, making it there.

The critic shakes his head, damn good answer, how about the movements for change, why so many of them, why such chaos out there, God shakes his head, a critic, what else would you expect. The talk as if they know, when all they do is study something small, and try to apply it, how often has that error been made. I made you stubborn for a reason, and if you read the old scriptures, you will work it out. You think this world is a free ride, nice idea son, just remember, one day you will all have to hand it back. Amen.

Light Energy

She looks drawn, eyes droop, her arms hang, weighed down with bags, but there is a twinkle in her eye, there is a surprise inside, a heavy heart will get a lift, the darkness will vanish, someone thought of me, that’s all it will take, someone remembers me. No longer alone, why, the hurtful memories will disappear, while the light energy engineers, brings to the surface, the sweetest of thoughts, the feelings that the darkness makes disappear.

Our reason for being, why do we exist, Solomon asked this question many times; it seemed so easy to put it words; to bring lightness to being, light energy. What weighs you down; the bills come to mind, the shape, the weighing scales, every time we measure, we end up at the extremes, comparing, well, that didn’t cost much, you have to get something better, is that all they could afford, meanies you imply, how bad do we need light energy, seriously.

You have to feel it…

The young man is in a far away place, the words roll over him, he isn’t listening to the old man, it’s not that he is bad mannered, he is just a little tired, where are you he asks, he is talking to himself and his Spirit guide, where are you. Are you listening sunny, the old man is trying to get a point across, the child is his grandson, he is filling in for the boys father, and not doing a great impression. has never used a modern i phone, can’t use the net, the boy is not looking forward to Christmas, and so the old man is trying to cheer him up.

Why don’t you leave me alone he snarls, and quickly leaves the scene, he is soon before the screen, surfing his new friend list, trying to find an escape. all around they are cheering Christmas, while all he gets is upset, does anyone listen… There is a knock at the door, the post man appears, the old man takes the parcel, wonders if he will call the boy down, bad tempered fool he says, with that attitude he’ll end up in jail.

Solomon listens, the aches and the pretends, the acting and the real, the over verbose and the serene, he too wonders if it’s real sometimes, how one day the baby is honored and sought, while a little time later, well, it’s open to all sorts of abuse. was this a description of the world, the child is born, the environment is getting more restrictive by the year, more and more saying openly, the stress is unbearable at times.

You have to feel it he sighed, but when it is real, you sure do know it. The boy in the story will get to the stage, a kind friend will intervene, then he will understand, all it takes is a little time and patience, not the micro wave thinking that is in so many heads, hey, will you talk to me awhile, the voice is lonely, the mouth opens, you suddenly begin to feel. Being the Season of Christmas, it was good to be made aware of why it’s celebrated..amen
