"Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, goodwill to
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Today I listened to a choir perform the hymn "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" in the The Magic of Christmas performance with our local symphony orchestra. Truly, music is one of the deepest expression of our souls. It speaks to each of us and touches something deep inside us, our soul.
On the Other Side, I believe that the souls/angels/beings there sing in unison much like we do today in venues like this: singing is one of the most profound ways to express our spirit. And when a multitude of humans sings together in one place, the vibration created by the energy and love and power generated in that room lifts up our souls in joy and love, resonating perfectly with our higher selves for at least that moment in time. If we can just keep this joyful feeling, this high vibration for a bit longer, if we could carry it home with us in the car and bring it to work with us the next day, and share it with everyone we come in contact with, wouldn't the world be that much better for just that day?
This is what this blog is about. How can we bring our highest selves with us everywhere we go? So we don't leave them behind in the concert hall or in the yoga studio or wherever else we access them? We are at the point in our evolution when it is imperative that we do so. And most of us will.
"God is not dead, nor doth he sleep." (Insert the word "Universal Love" or "Benevolent Life Force" or "Higher Spirits" for the term "God," which often leads us astray since the pronoun has been much abused in our time (another blog topic for another day). These words, written during a time of war in our society, still resonate today, sadly. Still, I choose to believe that "the right," or simply put, love and kindness, will prevail, if we can learn to carry and spread our inner goodness to all those we touch, in each moment of our daily lives.
