“That’s Alright”: For Those of Us Who LIVE/LOVE (peace sublime)

Standard

Great Monday all! I’m continuing with my motivational wisdom from Marvin Gaye..enjoy the video/music track below!

“Right On”Marvin Gaye "What's Going On" high res cover art

Hey baby
That’s alright people
I know that’s alright
Oh, when we love each other
I know that’s alright
Oh feel it, feel it
Oh everybody feel it
God knows that’s alright, yes
Some of us were born
With money to spend
Some of us were born
For races to win
Some of us are aware
That it’s good for us to care
Some of us feel the icy wind
Of poverty blowing in the air
For those of us who simply like to socialize
For those of us who tend the sick
And heed the people’s cries
Let me say to you
Right on!
Right on, feel it
And I say, Right on
Honey right on
For those of us who live
Where peace is craved
For those of us who live,
Where hatred is enslaved, alright
For those of us who live a life
Yea, surrounded by good fortune and wealth

Those of us who live a life
Hey, hey, hey enjoying ourselves
For those of us who got drowned
In the sea of happiness
For the soul that takes pride in his God
And himself and everything else
Love
That’s all it is
We need love
That’s all it is
Oh, oh
Love, love
Love’s the thing
Love, love, love, love
Sweet love, love
Wonderful love
Ah, true love, love
Love for your brother and love,
Love, for God
Pure love
Love can conquer hate every time
Give out some love and you’ll find
Peace sublime
And my darling, one more thing
If you let me, I will take you
To live where love is King
Ah, baby
That’s alright
Alright

-Marvin Gaye, 1972

Find Your Way

Standard

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – the Bible, John 14:6

“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.” —Buddha

Through these two passages that are so identical in their differences, we are reminded that what we have within and before us, is peace and salvation. Tap into it, go after it!

Marvin Gaye "What's Going On" high res cover art“God Is Love”
Don’t go and talk about my Father
‘Cause God is my friend
Jesus is my friend
He made this world for us to live in, and gave us everything
And all He asks of us, (PEACE!) is we give each other love.
Don’t go and talk about my Father
Cause God is my friend
Jesus is my friend
He loves us whether or not we know it
And He’ll forgive all our sins (He’ll forgive our sins)
And all He asks of us, is we give each other love, oh yeah.

Love your mother, she bore you
Love your father, he works for you
Love your sister, she’s good to you
Love your brother, your brother!
Don’t go and talk about my Father, He’s good to us,
God is my friend
Jesus is my friend
And when we call in Him for mercy, (Mercy Father)
He’ll be merciful, my friend
Oh, yes He will
And all He asks of us, I know……….

-Marvin Gaye 1971

 

Live Life for the Children

Standard

Well, I must say; it is good to be back to my business as usual–posting positivity and sending it out into the virtual universe.  I took somewhat of a hiatus because I was just so undone by the whole Trayvon Martin case and the George Zimmerman verdict. But I rest in comfort knowing that the universe has never failed any of us and that, in the end, we all reap as we sow.

So..let’s get back into the swing of things! I’m still on my Marvin Gaye, What’s Going On tribute mode, so let’s pick up where we left off. This song is a brilliant and loving reflection of the attitude we should all have about our children and our society (enjoy the video below, as well):

True knowledge for the day (the song is amazingly brilliant!):

“Save The Children”

I just want to ask a question
Who really cares?
To save a world in despair
There’ll come a time, when the world won’t be singin’
Flowers won’t grow, bells won’t be ringin’
Who really cares?
Who’s willing to try to save a world
That’s destined to die
When I look at the world it fills me with sorrow
Little children today are really gonna suffer tomorrow
Oh what a shame, such a bad way to live
All who is to blame, we can’t stop livin’
Live, live for life
But let live everybody
Live life for the children
Oh, for the children
You see, let’s save the children
Let’s save all the children
Save the babies, save the babies
If you wanna love, you got to save the babies
All of the children
But who really cares
Who’s willing to try
Yes, to save a world
Yea, save our sweet world
Save a world that is destined to die
– Marvin Gaye
