Today I share with you a song from the late great John Lennon
People say I'm crazy, doing what I'm doing
They give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
When I tell them I'm ok watching shadows on the wall
Surely you're not happy now, you're no longer on the ball
People say I'm lazy, dreaming my life away
They give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
I tell them that I'm doing fine, just sitting here doing time
People asking questions lost in confusion
I tell them there's no problems only solutions
Well they shake their heads and look at me
As if I've lost my mind
I tell them there's no hurry I'm just sitting here doing time
I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go I just had to let it go
There it is my friends. May all of you wonderful folks be able to let it go and enjoy the moment you find yourself in right now. Be good to yourself and even better to others.

Keep it simple stupid. I've been aware of that old adage for many years now. And still I find myself at times being drawn back into the illusions of this world we call home. I am reminded of a verse from a song written by Ric Ocasik who was the lead singer of a group called The Cars. The verse goes like this: Maybe you're on a mission trying to get a leg across,, but nobody wants to listen, cause everyone is getting lost. As I listen to this song I am reminded of how we as a human race cannot seem to agree as to how to end all the negative stuff going on around us every day. It seems to me that even the "good" people who wish to see a change don't really know how to go about doing it. One belief clashes with another and on and on it goes. In the meantime while we continue to argue and try to get our message across, the "bad" people continue to keep us chained down by telling us what we can eat, what we can drink, smoke, or even how we should dress! I don't get it! Maybe its just me I don't know. Still I try to get "my" message across to others. And that message is just to love each other and realize we are all ONE. I don't know if anyone is listening or not and sometimes I think I will just learn to let go and just "watch" what is going on. I tend to think that maybe my message seems too simple for others to accept. Us human beings tend to think that we have to make things "hard" to get anything done at all. Guess I'll just continue on my personal path of love and kindness and keep it simple! To all of you I share my love and hope you all have a most wonderful weekend ahead.

Once again I find myself wondering why things have to happen as they do. There is just so much violence, racism, hate, and misunderstanding in an otherwise beautiful world. I don't think it is this way because we cannot agree on so many things, but rather that when we disagree we feel that the other person or belief is wrong and we want so much to be "right" ourselves, that we oft times go as far as killing each other. Why do we feel we have to be the one that is right? And even if we are or are not then why should we feel that we have to make the other one admit that they are wrong. For an example, we can all see the violence and hate playing out on the front we call terrorism. A religious sect of certain believers are so intense in making the entire world turn to their interpretation that they are slaying innocent men, women, and children in the name of a god they believe in. Why can't they instead just go about living their beliefs and accepting that everyone else has the same right to believe their own way? That way no one would be killing another human being. This is an extreme example of what happens when we cannot just agree to disagree and leave it that way. Certain groups in all countries seem to want to have and exert their power over everyone else. There is no government anywhere that is totally innocent of forcing their will on others. When it comes down to one person's belief system against anothers' the same thing should apply. If you can't agree then just accept the fact that one of you may be right and the other wrong, but also that the possibility exist that neither on e of you is right. This world seems to be getting more crazy by the day. I think we have enough problems just dealing with our planet and all the changes it is going through. If and only if all of us take the time to see that we are all "ONE" will we be able to survive as a race of human beings. Whatever you believe, whatever you do or say will not change the fact that all of us are in trouble unless we learn to love each other, treat each other with respect, and wish the best for everyone. Those seeking to rule the world will be in for a sad reckoning when they finally realize there will be nothing to control if the world continues down the path we are headed. I don't try to convince you of anything other than to love. Give love, accept love, be love. It hurts me to see all the violence and stuff going on not only here in America but all across the world. I see all kinds of groups of people just being led along a path like a herd of sheep. Too many have been entranced in a belief system where war, misunderstanding, hate and the like is always present. As I see it we should embrace love, work together for the common good, and stop living our lives in fear. Nor should any one man or group be in total power over the rest of us. But then again, that is only one man's opinion. That is mine and mine alone and I know I could be wrong. But if I am, at least I am being wrong in a way where I try my best to never hurt anyone. Today I wish for each of you a moment filled with pure love and personal freedom to discover the "INNER YOU" who is like myself just tired of all the false teachings, the hate and the violence. Here's hoping it all ceases to be real soon. HUGS for all.
