Take a moment today to read these words, meditate on them and LISTEN to the quick link below and incorporate this into your lives. And so it is!

“Wholy [sic] holy
Come together
Wholy holy
People, we all got to come together
‘Cause we need the strength, power and all the feeling

Wholy holy
Oh Lord, get together, one another
Wholy holy
We should believe in one another (believe in Jesus)
Jesus left a long time ago, said He would return
He left us a book to believe in, in it we’ve got a lot to learn
Oh, wholy holy

Oh Lord, we can conquer hate forever (yes we can)
Wholy holy,holy
We can rock the world’s foundation (yes we can)
Everybody together, together and wholy holy
We’ll holler love, love, love across the nation

Oh, oh
Wholy holy
All together and holy

“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

 

YOUR WORDS CREATE YOUR REALITY

Standard

Look in the mirror. Look around you. Look at your home. Look at your work. Look at your relationships. Look at your health. Look at what you have created. Yes, you have created that which is in your life. Do you like what you see? You have created your reality by your words. Your words do not come back to you void. Each word you speak sends a vibration out into the universe and creates that which you have spoken. The power of the word is noted in Genesis. It states “in the beginning was the Word and the Word was God.” Be careful of the words that you speak.  Begin to listen to what you say and delete words that are negative. Delete words that are not healing and uplifting. Delete words that create poverty, disease, chaos and emotional unrest. Keep your words positive. Choose words that create beauty, order, peace and harmony.

Here is your mantra for the day: I create my reality by the words I speak. I choose to live in a peaceful, healthy environment. I choose to speak words that are positive, uplifting and healthy. I want the reality I create to be filled with joy, divine health and prosperity. I choose my words carefully and I see my reality change before my eyes. Thanks, God. And so it is!

And whatever you do in word or deed, do it in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to Him through God the Father. ” – Colossians 3:17 (Lamsa’s Aramaic Translation)image
