Shine On…

Standard

Today I felt the need to post 2 entries.
Be inspired. Be blessed. SHINE YOUR LIGHT ON THE WORLD! Enjoy and remember: No life’s worth more than any other, No sister worth less than any brother….so SHINE ON and Let your heart be boundless, Like your faith in The One….! (video below)

“Shine on
All my people who’ve been broken-hearted
Shine on
From the place where all life had been started
When you need fresh air
Go beyond horizons
To your place in the sun
Shine on
Let your heart be boundless
Like your faith in The One.

It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
No stopping to this warfare
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
We’re breathing in the same air
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
You don’t care
No stopping to this warfare
And you don’t care
No

Sing on
From the language of your ancestors and
Sing on
Be playful in your innocence and
Lift your head up high
And rejoice for all you see
Without your eyes
Sing on
Like a bird that’s making love in sunset skies

It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
No stopping to this warfare
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
We’re breathing in the same air
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care

No life’s worth more than any other
No sister worth less than any brother
No life’s worth more than any other
No sister worth less than any brother
No life’s worth more than any other
No sister worth less than any brother
No life’s worth more than any other
No sister worth less than any brother

It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
No stopping to this warfare
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
We’re breathing in the same air
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
You don’t care
No stopping to this warfare
You don’t care

Somebody, please
Send us a prayer.” – Michael Franti featuring Spearhead

It’s Time to Change Our Thinking…

Standard

“Well now it’s time we change our thinking
Know our design, and our Father’s plan
We were deemed to live a life that’s beautiful; a life that’s full; a life that’s rich and plentiful
It is my goal to remind you of this principle
We’re redeemed; a newborn soul
Let’s get back to Eden; live on top of the world!….

LIVE… IT’S NOT  TIME FOR YOU TO GIVE UP NOW! (LIVE!) God’s gonna work it out, you’re getting ready to SMILE (LIVE!)…THE BLESSING IS ON YOU TO LIVE…”

-Donald Lawrence from “Back to Eden

Great day all! Let’s all remember to keep our minds and hearts focused on our blessings and what matters MOST in life so we can create peace in our lives and the lives of others. To enjoy this song and really “party” in this message, see link below 😉

Stand in the Now

Standard

“You said you would supply all my needs according to your riches and glory…Father, I stretch my hand to thee….no other help I know. I’m standing in the need of a blessing” – ‘Standing in the Need of a Blessing’ – Reverend James Cleveland (if you want to take a listen, for your soul, check out the link at the bottom of this post. ENJOY!)

Great day all! Today’s Soul Food was inspired by an online discussion I had with someone yesterday over the purpose of inspirational messages.  This person equated the desire to seek out inspirational quotes and messages with a person’s desire or contentment in being or remaining “broke” (such an odd and far-fetched connection, but anyway…). But I thank him for his ignorance in that comment because it was a great reminder to me and a few others about the purpose of inspirational messages.

We can all use a little inspirational coaching to get us through or over something, or to keep us focused and on our path. I thought about some of the old songs that have lyrics like “I praise Him in the sunshine, and also the rain” and like the one referenced above, “Standing in the need of a blessing.” What;s important in this lyric is that sometimes we may not be knocked off of our feet by life; but we are always in need of a blessing.  Sometimes we can stand in need of a blessing and open our souls up to the power of the universe to bless us, however is fit for our needs, to keep us going or get us through any obstacle.

No matter what life throws at you; no matter what ignorance or diversity you face, continue to STAND and face it head on and know that you are blessed and are being rewarded. You must trust that the reward is there, it is attainable and it it is YOURS.

Edgar Cayce once said “there is no past, present or future. It all happens at once”. This is a rather deep concept for some people to grasp, but when you approach it with simplicity it puts everything into perspective. There is no pleading or asking for what you want, because what you deserve is already waiting for you. Trust that it is there and do the work to go get it!
