Can you accept the notion that once you change your internal state, you don’t need the external world to provide you with a reason to feel joy, gratitude, appreciation, or any other elevated emotion?
You and I know that we need each other
It came to me as I drove through the pouring rain
There’s something I’ve always known that I need to tell you
It’s the simple things I find so hard to say
So I give you my heart
And all the feelings inside
Here’s a love that will last
for the rest of our lives
So believe in these words
That are deep from my soul
And remember that I’ll always be there
To have and to holdWhen you’re away I find that I need you
And then It turns out
You feel the same
Now I won’t be alone to face tomorrow
And the truth is out and it”s falling just like rain

The Storm was an American supergroup rock band, formed in the Bay Area of San Francisco during the early 1990s. The band released their first single, a power ballad, “I’ve Got a Lot to Learn About Love,” for which they are perhaps most widely known. The song peaked at #6 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and at #26 on the Billboard Hot 100.
“Once our souls connected, we became an everlasting conduit in which love could flow.”
Aligned by love
Aligned to love
When separated, love brings us closer
Eyes on distant starlight
One hand on the heart the other towards heaven
We feel one another
Eyes on distant sunlight
Thoughts warming the soul
Our souls aligned and flowing with love
Love has taken permanent residence within us
Never to leave or abandon
Only to embrace us stronger
The will to be polite, to maintain civility and normalcy, is fearfully strong. I wonder sometimes how much evil is permitted to run unchecked simply because it would be rude to interrupt it.
– Alix E. Harrow, The Ten Thousand Doors of January
Evil exists and it needs nothing to trigger it into action. The death of George Floyd was a horrific act unto itself but what has followed since has been twice as horrific.
It is the right of citizens to protest but for every peaceful protester there are scores of individuals with evil intentions. How can the burning of buildings, toppling over cars, looting stores, tagging buildings and just reckless mayhem be justified.
Just as we are starting to emerge from “stay at home” & “lockdown” orders, we go right back into racist, ignorance is bliss chaos. I do not want to see another celebrity star-studded, let’s hold hands and sing concert to try and bring harmony to the world. The human race as a whole needs to really wake up and get its act together.
It really saddens me to see this type of reaction once again to another evil act of senselessness. As fustrating as it is to see another police officer abuse his position of authority (you think that in this day and age of technology they would have learned by now), it is even more fustrating to see the violent reaction across the country and close to home.
But so does Goodness….
Stay inspired and keep rising
God flows through you
Enhanced spiritual power
The wire from your core plugged into God
Divine eternal life
