who has dedicated his life
to teaching and sharing his Love
of the astonishing beauty found
in the magic of music.
Everything that could possibly happen
is waiting in the wings,
eager for its opportunity, its big moment.
And as soon as it gets a chance, it’ll happen.
Don’t take it personally.
– Christian de Quincy
The mind, in its natural state,
Surrendering to its fullness,
The astonishing beauty of the present moment,
Is not tarnished with harmful emotion.
We need do nothing to find inner peace,
Just listen to the sound
Of what feels warm to our heart.
Gave us insight into our perception of reality,
And the objects of our perception.
His was the realization that all we ever truly know,
Or think we know,
Is generated in our minds.
The world itself, what lies outside of perception,
The night bird’s song
May be living a life of its own.
For in your mind,
Long after this tiny artist’s
Gifts of life and Love are gone,
The magic moment of its melody
May go on and on,
Like the music of your life,
In the heart and mind of another.
A piece of music,
Composed with such Love,
Can drift through life
And remain suspended in our memory,
Into what we assume,
Is our reality.
It may move through space and time,
As it transgresses what we imagine
Are laws that govern what is known.
Through your mind,
Such Celestial vibrations can wander
In seemingly aimless directions,
Although a pathway is charted,
As it creates warmth and tenderness,
With beautiful anticipation.
Effortlessly, the gift of music transports you
To a place of consciousness that lies
Outside the plane of awareness.
The delicate sound of a caressing song
Enables your mind to visualize images
Of what may be more real,
Than is real,
It may transcend the illusions of the material world.
With everything physical in perpetual motion,
In a dance of seeming indifference,
The imagination of the mind can freeze
A frame of pure emotion.
The shadow of its smile
May fall upon an image of what you truly feel,
A fragment of your creation,
Conveyed to the very heart of desire.
There is a powerful sense of beauty,
In the melody of this moment.
Awareness of this beauty,
Can set your mind truly free,
Make you feel so deeply,
That you are suddenly in touch
With your inner reality,
The essence of your being,
Music – Blessed are the Dead Which Die in the Lord
You are born free
to follow your heart.
Life is only worth living,
if you are born free.
– John Barry, Don Black
It can take you to a better place,
Much better than a house
Built upon so many dreams.
The music of your life
Can allow you to become
Fully aware of being,
In a truly effortless moment.
As Julito Tabalba expresses:
I thought they were gone – but hearing this song –
I could, for a moment, find me and my friends
racing against the wind – and hear while calling my name.
We continued the race through the endless land
that stretches so far and high that somewhere,
it finally meets the sky.
We had all the time in our hands
and everything we touch was ours then.
Experience what has been so
Beautifully crafted for you.
The sounds of song,
The vibrations of life,
Are essential signals
On the path to intimacy,
To insight, to Love.
Music – In Paradisum from Requiem op. 48
My friends, relax and allow your mind to experience
The incredible softness
And healthy caress
Of the magical elixir of poetic moments and relaxing music.
There is no need for your mind to remain weary,
As you toil to exist day by day,
Harvesting a few meager moments of meaning,
From what can become
An unreal world.
Listens to hear your song.
They have been listening all day.
And your day is not long.
Its cadence is the very beat of your heart.
One day, in the brief dawn of this life,
You may hear your own song,
Mirrored in the heart of another,
Reflected off the walls
Of a world you never knew.
And its echoes will go on and on.
Let us pray,
It is not on the day
“Pull out the chair
Beneath your ego,
And you will fall
Into the Heart of God.“
Oxford University scientists warn of these apocalyptic risks
From our friend Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, here’s the list of apocalyptic threats documented by Oxford University scientists:
1. Global pandemic
2. Super Volcano
3. Artificial Intelligence
4. Extreme climate change
5. Synthetic biology
6. Asteroid impact
7. Ecological collapse
9. Nuclear war
10. Government collapse
11. Global economic collapse
The report, covered in the Financial Times and also the Daily Mail, offers a scientific assessment of the twelve most likely risks of a literal apocalypse across our planet.
Artificial Intelligence, nanotech, synthetic biology and GMOs are all technologies that scientists say can only help humanity; yet that’s what they also promised about DDT, Agent Orange, nuclear weapons, chemotherapy and a long list of other sciences that were later used to cause widespread suffering and death.
Murphy’s Law says that if something can go wrong, it will.
Biotechnology has no special immunity against Murphy’s Law. Nor do AI research firms like Google, which has already developed weapons-carrying humanoid robots with laser rangefinders, following in the path of fictional Terminators from the realm of sci-fi.
“Technology without wisdom is suicide.”
Now, it seems, even Oxford scientists are beginning to acknowledge the very real risks of pursuing runaway science, runaway global debt and runaway ecological destruction in the name of “profits.”
