“I hear your voice on the wind and I hear you call out my name ‘Listen my child’, you say to me, ‘I am the voice of your history. Be not afraid; come follow me Answer my call and I set you free I am the voice in the wind and the pouring rain; I am the voice of your hunger and pain; I am the voice that always is calling you I am the voice; I will remain I am the voice in the fields when the summer is gone; and dance all the leaves when the autumn winds blow; nor do I sleep throughout all the cold winter and I am the force that in springtime will grow ” Celtic Woman, THE VOICE, A New Journey
A voice has been calling for a very long time. It is one that asks me to be more than I am. It asks me to be bold, live fully and allow my wildest dreams to run free. It is a voice I knew as a child, echoed in my mind as a teen and whispered ever so gently as I grew. It is the voice that would comfort me in my deepest sorrows and fill me up inside when I experienced my greatest joys. It is this voice that I yearn to connect to that I have never been separate from but have told myself I am not worthy of. I wish to see it, hear it, taste it, and smell it. I long to be ONE with it. I open my heart and mind completely that I may evolve to the highest vibration in order to know its realness within me .yet all that is necessary to know my connection and Oneness is simply the remembrance the knowing the sound of silence. So be it!
“Hello darkness my old friend. I have come to talk with you again. Because a vision is softly in- creeping. Left its seeds while I was sleeping. And the vision that was planted in my brain still remains within the sound of silence. In restless dreams I walked alone “ Simon & Garfunkel, THE SOUND OF SILENCE, The Best of Simon & Garfunkel
The veils of illusion crept over my life allowing the drama of my thoughts to ensue. Emptiness that I felt inside would not be filled by exterior things. Grand stories to take me into the future and haunting stories that I continually relived from the past; none of these people would fill this deep well of loneliness. In the midst of these chains, your voice had always been calling I would not allow myself to hear it. I just needed one reason to see myself worthy just give me one reason to believe
“Give me one reason to stay here and I will turn right back around. I don’t want to leave you lonely. I want a ticket to anywhere Maybe we can make a deal. Maybe together we can get somewhere. Any place is better. Startin from zero; got nothing to lose maybe we’ll make something. Me, myself, I got nothing to prove “Tracy Chapman, GIVE ME ONE REASON, New Beginning
My competition is not with any other. I find it only with myself. I drive ‘me’ hard to complete tasks, something measurable to give my life a sense of worth. Only then, perhaps, I will allow myself a glimpse, a whisper, a sensation of your great presence surging not only within me but through me completely. If only you could read my mind , my Beloved
“If you could read my mind, Love, what a tale my thoughts could tale. Just like an old time movie ’bout a ghost from a wishin well. In a castle dark, or a fortress drawn with chains upon my feet. You know that ghost is me. And I will never be set free as long as I’m a ghost you can’t see. If I could read your mind Love, what a tale your thoughts could tell. Just like a paperback novel, the kind the drugstore sells. When you reach the part, where the heartaches come, the hero would be me “ CD By Gordon Lightfoot, IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND, Gord’s Gold
I am three within one My thoughts tell one story. My heart speaks something grand and my words and actions produce yet something else. Shall I venture to the top of the castle and clean what cobwebs remain. Shall I place light in that room of darkness and allow the monkey mind be set free shall its movement to freedom release the chains that harness my feet in fear? With the simple lighting of this internal flame be enough to allow my soul to say what it needs to say
“Take out any wasted honor, every little past frustration. Take out any so called problem. Better put them in quotations. Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say Walkin like a one man army. Fightin with the shadows in your head. Livin out the same old moment. Knowing you would be better off instead if you could only say what you need to say Say what you need to say have no fear for givin in have no fear for givin on. You better know in the end that it is better to say too much than never to say what you need to say Even if you hands are shaking, and your faith is broken, and the eyes are closin do it with a heart wide open ” John Mayer, SAY
I journeyed down the path wrapped up in my mind’s constant chatter. I disciplined the ego and allowed possibility to flower. As the light poured into my body and cleansed all that had been placed as storage. The clutter of my mind cleared as, one by one, I allowed forgiveness to those that I needed to set free and let them be forgiven. My body feels light and my mind so clear. My feet float along as visions of you appear so near. Leaving the past behind and stepping gently into the time of my life
“I’ve been waitin for my dreams to turn into something I could believe in and lookin for that magic rainbow on the horizon. I couldn’t see it until I let go; gave into Love watched all the bitterness burn. Now I’m comin alive, body and soul feelin my world start to turn. And I’ll taste every moment and live it out loud and know this is the time this the time to be more than a name or face in the crowd; I know this is the time this is the time of my life time of my life Holdin onto things that vanish into the air left me in pieces but now I’m risin from the ashes, finding my wings and all that I needed was there all along, within my reach, as close as the beat of my heart “ CD By David Cook, THE TIME OF MY LIFE
I feel my heart opening and all is ablaze with you. My beloved, I feel your essence so close I speak to my brethren and praise your name. The White brotherhood, Order of Melchezidek, Jesus, Babaji, and Kuan Yin, Kuthumi Archangels and Masters, all Ascended Beings You are all part of this great presence..known as Oneness and you beckon me to believe that I am as well I call you into the room and we shall celebrate together. You provided many different ladders for us to climb, none was better than the other, just different paths to venture in our time paths where single truths resonated as a strand of pearls upon a singular sting. Thank you for holding my hands. Without your love, support and assistance, I could not have sustained. You led me to light and gave me the strength Through the grace and kindness all of you bestowed, the path to my beloved becomes ever so close I can only imagine
“I can only imagine what it will be like when I walk by your side. I can only imagine what my eyes will see; when your face is before me I can only imagine. Yeah Surrounded by your Glory, what will my heart feel? Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still? Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall? Will I sing ‘Hallelujah’? Will I be able to speak at all? I can only imagine. I can only imagine when that day comes and I find myself standing in the sun I can only imagine when all I would do is forever, forever worship you. I can only imagine. I can only imagine ” CD By MercyMe, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE, Almost There
I am here willing, ready and able. I commit my life to your service. I walk seeing you in everyone and everything beholding it all as whole and complete. I recognize my purpose to be creative, expressive, and a gift to myself. I understand that I am to hold the vision put in the action and then have the faith for you to place it into physical manifestation. All the while I am simply to believe and allow I am waiting
“I am waiting I am waiting on you Lord and I am hopeful. I am waiting on you Lord, though it is painful. But patiently I will wait. I will move ahead bold and confident, taking every step in obedience while I am waitin. I will serve you while I am waitin. I will worship while I am waiting. I will not faint. I will be runnin the race even while I wait I am waiting. I am waiting on you Lord and I am peaceful. I am waiting on you Lord. Though it’s not easy but I will wait ” CD By John Waller, WHILE I’M WAITING, The Blessing
I began as a seed down deep in the dirt, unable to see sunlight and even my own worth. Yet as you nurtured me with our rays and showered with your grace, the waters of purification blessed my countenance. It was necessary to have the mountains and also for the valleys. I needed to fall into crevices and walk the lonely path. It was loving to have me wander so that I may choose a destination and all the while you saw me not as the see but as the beautiful blossoming rose.
“Some say Love, it is a river that drowns the tender reed. Some say Love, it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed. Some say Love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need I say Love, it is a flower and YOU it’s only seed. It’s the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance. It’s the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance. It’s the one who won’t be taken who cannot seem to give. And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long and you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong Just remember, in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow lies the seed that with sun’s love in the spring becomes the rose…” Bette Midler, THE ROSE
There is something in my system that makes me want to move. Something coming from deep within me that I know to be the truth. I feel the beating of my heart as your gentle knock upon my soul door. I feel the breath you breathe into me, allowing me to want life and have so much more. I am simply an instrument that your breath gives sound to, one that can move and dance being the manifested expression of you. Pour more on, my lord shower me like a waterfall drown me in LOVE!
“I miss the sound of your voice. The loudest thing in my head. And I ache to remember And I miss the still of the silence as you breathe out and I breathe in. If I could walk on water and tell you what’s next. Make you believe, make you forget C’mon get higher, loosen my lips, faith and desire, swing your hips Pull me down and drown me in LOVE ” Matt Nathanson, COME ON GET HIGHER, Some Mad Hope
We walk so blinded, forgetting what we really know. The reality is just fantasy and what we dream of we can make real. It is time to disconnect the brain, close the eyes, open my heart and feel what is right Let the inner ‘I’ open and look up high to see my higher self has been guiding me all along.
“Is this the real life Is this just fantasy caught in the landslide, no escape from reality. Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see “
No, I would not have changed a thing for I see the great novel. It has all been LOVE and I am so grateful. There may be perceivably be only two things, LOVE and fear but in actuality there is only LOVE-‘learning and discoving’ More LOVE â€“ ‘experiencing and allowing’ ALL LOVE Being and Integrating, Knowing Trusting, Believing and Seeing, Feeling and Hearing..the Lover and the Beloved
“I’m starin out into the night, trying to hide the pain. I going to the place where Love and feeling good don’t never cost a thing. And the pang you feel is a different kind of pang. I am goin home into the place where I belong. Where your Love has always been enough for me. I am not runnin from no I think you have got me all wrong. I don’t regret this life you chose for me ”
How is the voice calling you? Are you listening? Where are your messages coming from movies, music, television, books, license plates, billboards, animals, numbers, colors, other people? All you have to do is BELIEVE Beyond the Illusion !!!
