Sunny Greetings! Welcome to the de-light-filled, meaning-full, Home of Wellness and Spirituality!
Name this song: This night, We pray, Our lives, Will show, This dream, He had, Each child, Still knows.
Those words came into my earbuds while running this morning. Oh, how moving, how quickening as my lungs sucked in the 30 degree air! That was after I did my best dance moves to “Put a Ring on It” in the driveway before starting out. Haha.
I have set the mp3 player on “random” so I never know what’s coming up next. That way, Spirit can decide which songs–which ideas– to plant into my noggin while I “race” through the neighborhood. I get really jacked from some of these songs.
Rewards come if you push yourself. Obviously there are Advent-ages, (good things that happen during Advent) for instance, to dragging yourself out of bed in the morning. I start getting my parents up at 9 a.m. So my time is my own until then. I can either sleep till the last minute or get up and run, or dance and exercise, and meditate.
Being of a spiritual bent, I keep choruses from Handel’s Messiah on the Mp3 player year round plus a wonderful Mandala Dance of the 21 Praises of Tara.* (Casie…you’d love this, I bet.) Messages from Sophia, The Spirit of Holy Pure Virginal Truth and Wisdom, emanate from all the world’s spiritual traditions. Oh yeah. And no tradition is devoid of error!
Speaking of the 21 Praises of Tara, Grandmother Parisha, who was raised by her Cherokee Grandmother in southern Appalachia, tells stories of a sojourn in the Himalayas, studying in a Buddhist monastary. As her website www.parishaonline.com states, Pa’Ris’Ha has been acknowledged as a Tibetan reincarnation of TARA, a Bodhisattva Buddha, by Rinpoche Kalu and a Bhutanese Rinpoche, T’sering Wangdi.
Very cool, eh?
Anyway, the lyrics above came from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Christmas Canon. And here’s wishing you many Adventages!
