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

What Will Your Legacy Be?

Standard

Great day all! Today’s Soul Food is from the late, great Marvin Gaye. On this day, the anniversary of his murder, we remember him and celebrate his life through the gift of his talents that he left us, here on earth.  Because of his musical legacy, he will live forever!  I urge you to enjoy this video and pay special attention to the lyrics of both songs, as they speak to the problems of our society today, in 2013.  Marvin felt he needed to share his views on the political, economic and social climate of that time and today, we can all be our own agents for change in our own way.  Be inspired…enjoy this rare video

Lyrics – What’s Happening Brother

Hey baby, what’cha know good?
I’m just gettin’ back, but you knew I would
War is hell, when will it end,
When will people start gettin’ together again
Are things really gettin’ better, like the newspaper said?
What else is new my friend, besides what I read?
Can’t find no work, can’t find no job my friend
Money is tighter than it’s ever been
Say man, I just don’t understand
What’s going on across this land
Ah what’s happening brother,
Oh ya, what’s happening my man!
Are they still gettin’ down where we used to go and dance?
Will our ball club win the pennant,
do you think they have a chance?
And tell me friend, how in the world have you been?
Tell me what’s out and I want to know what’s in…
What’s the deal man, what’s happening
What’s happening brother
Ah what’s happening brother
What’s happening my man
Ah what’s happening brother
What’s been shaken up and down the line
I want to know cause I’m slightly behind the time.

-Marvin Gaye
