Positivity

Published 14/10/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

Positivity.. noun. ….’The quality or state of being positive’. “Something that is positive’

What does this word really mean to me and to you?….Well, I believe that waking up with a positive attitude is really important to our lives, positivity brings us to where we want to be, it connects us to our heart, it connects us to our divine self, to our true self and it takes us away from our negative self, our ego-self!

We believe that things or people make us unhappy, but this is not accurate. We make ourselves unhappy. Very little is needed to make our lives happy; we all already possess this skill,  it’s all to do with our way of thinking.

Suffering and the onslaught of negativity and pain is brought on from our desires. Our desire to remain in the current state, to keep our youthful looks, our trim figure, our beautiful hair, our desire to gain wealth, desire to achieve greater control, greater power, more authority, our desire for sensual pleasures, for alcohol, drugs, food, money, and of course our desire to be happy….So we constantly strive to find this happiness everywhere, we seek it each and every day, we see people on the street, on the TV in the media who look happy in their big houses, their jobs, in their relationships..so we want the same, right?

I have learned that happiness starts within, it starts with our thoughts and our positivity helps is live happy contented lives, I know for sure that when my ego mind steps up, then my happiness and positivity levels drop through the floor. It eats away at you, controls you, and brings you down to its level, to where it wants you to be.

So, I have decided that ‘positivity’ is my new keyword, I have been through a lot, especially over these past few months. This has allowed my ego mind to play tricks on me, to put me in ‘The Victim’ mode, to make me feel sorry for myself, to allow me to have negative thoughts about all that I do, and all that happens to me. My negative emotions have taken control of my life…..and, ‘enough is enough’…I’m taking my life back,

……I’m taking my life back, I’m getting back in the saddle, taking up the reigns again for my life, I’m moving on, I’m holding my head high and ‘I’m happy 🙂

So, this morning when my dogs came in to wake me, I got up straight away, I greeted them with a smile as they wagged their tails and gave me their usual dose of unconditional love, I gave thanks in prayer to The Buddha, to the Ascended Masters, to My Parents, to my family and friends, and I vowed to continue my journey of self-discovery with a new vigour, with a bounce in my step, and with new love in my heart, a new love for me, for the person I am and for the person I will be.

Namaste with Love

Under Pressure, A Musical Gem!

Published 11/11/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I came across this masterpiece this morning, a A-Capella version of ‘Under Pressure’ recorded by David Bowie and Freddie Mercury in 1981.

‘Why can’t we give love a chance?

Because Love is such an old fashioned word

And Love dares you to care for the people on the edge of the light and love dares you to care for ourselves!

Under Pressure, Under Pressure, Under Pressure’!

Wonderful vocals, wonderful words.

Please turn up the volume and enjoy 🙂

Namaste with Love

What A Difference A Day Makes…Keep This Message in Mind…Everyday!

Published 11/08/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I was blown away when I listened to the old school voice of this eight year old girl singing ‘What a difference a day makes’ and it got me thinking the message is clear and each day has its own special message for you, it contains love and the difference is usually for or from our partner or loved one, feel the love today and make today different for your partner or loved one 🙂

Music, it has the power to heal our world and bring about Peace

Published 08/07/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

Music my dear friends can take you to another place, it can bring tears to your eyes, it can bring you relief, it can bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart. Music can help us heal our world, the sweet sounds from music from all every country of our world unites people, it brings us together in celebration and has been with us since the dawn of time, we should use music to bring countries and religions together and create a platform for us to communicate with one goal…peace and happiness.

The first video shows Donald, a homeless man in Florida USA, as you will see, he may be down on his luck but he has soul, he has love in his heart, he has the memory of music running through his veins. Bless him and bless his life 🙂

A homeless man in Florida play the piano beautifully, his name is Donald.
Check out Donalds facebook page where you can read the latest news on him, where he is and how hes doing!https://www.facebook.com/donaldbooneg…

The second video is an impromptu performance on a piano at St Pancras railway station in London by a rail passenger Henri Herbert. The sweet music he plays filled my heart with joy and made my day 🙂

Henri Herbert, keyboard player with the Jim Jones Revue (a high octane rock and roll band from London), gives an impromptu performance on the concourse of St Pancras International station, London
He cites Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson as having influenced his style.

The piano he is playing in this clip is one of several that were placed around railway station concourses in London last summer, for any member of the public to play. Henri decided he would give an impromptu performance to help promote an upcoming boogie woogie festival.

Music & Lyrics From Worry, Worry, Worry by the late great B.B King

Worry worry worry
Worry is all I can do
Oh worry worry worry baby
Worry is all I can do
Oh my life is so miserable baby
Baby, and its all on account of you

You hurt me so bad baby
When you said we were through
Oh you hurt me
You know you hurt me so bad baby
When you said we were through
Oh but I would rather be dead baby
Then to be here so alone and blue

Someday baby
Oh someday baby
Oh! someday baby
Oh! oh! oh oh yes
Oh! someday baby

“Ladies. I said ladies ladies if you got a man and the man don’t do like you think he
Should ladies you don’t hurt ‘im. I said don’t you hurt him! man happens to be
God’s gift to women! so ladies you must know that the man is already grown so you can’t
Raise him over again

So the thing to do is throw your arms around him! hold him close to
You! look him straight in the eyes! and then you tell him you tell him, you
Say “now baby you been messing up, but I know you gonna do me better.” and when he
Look at you as if he wanna know when, then you tell him “someday baby.” and if it seem
Like he’s hard of hearing or not paying you much attention or something do like you ladies
Are known to do put your hands on your hips and then you say it again ow! he have to
Be a mighty hard hearted person not to listen to you

But I don’t think it’s fair to just talk to the ladies, I think I should say a few words to the
Men too. so fellas I said fellas! fellas if you got a woman and the lady don’t do like
You think she should
Don’t you be goin’ upside of her head now. you know what I’m talkin’ about, don’t you be
Beatin’ on her. the judgment’s much cheaper if you don’t beat her. and you see if you hurt
Her you only do one thing I said if you hurt her you only do one thing! you make her a little
Smarter and she won’t let you catch her the next time. so the thing to do is throw your
Arms around the pretty little thing! now listen to me, listen to me I don’t care if she
Weigh thirty-two and a half pounds wet or five hundred and fifty pounds on her feet. if she’s
Your lady and you dig her, than she’s your pretty little thing and then you tell
Her! you say “baby! baby I don’t care what they say about you on the next block, your
My little lady and I dig you. let em talk, let ’em say what they want to say”

And fellas, you must know too that the ladies, god bless their sweet little souls, ladies
Happen to be god’s gift to man too fellas. you all agreed? you better say it cause your wife
Is listening. but there’s just one more thing I must say to you fellas, just one more thing
Don’t be too proud to beg. I said don’t be too proud to beg! if you have to fall
Down on your knees to let your woman know that you love her, go on down there
I can see some of you cats got dirty minds in the place this evening what I’m tryin’
To say, ladies love to hear their men say “baby I love you!” don’t
You ladies? I said ladies love to hear their men say “baby I love you!”
Don’t you ladies? so fellas tell your lady that you love her! she might
Think you’re lying though. tell your lady that you love her even if you are
Lying

But seriously speaking, when I goof, when I goof I usually slide up to my woman and I look
Straight at her I have to get my look first I usually say I look like a little puppy begging
For that last bone you been holding out on. I look straight at her and I say “baby! please
Forgive me honey!” and then I wait a few minutes to see how she take it. and then I
Say “baby! please forgive me honey!” and then I stand back far enough so that when
She swings I can duck and then I say “baby! you know when I goofed last week I
Was high “if she let me get away with that then I look at her real pitiful like this say
“Baby, honey you know when you’re high it don’t count. ” and then I tell her, I say
“If you forgive me honey I’m gonna do better.” And if she look at me as if she wanna know
When then I tell her “someday baby ”

Yes someday, baby
When the blood runs cold in my veins
Someday, baby
When the blood runs cold in my veins
You know you won’t be able to hurt me no more baby
‘Cause my heart won’t feel no pain

The purpose of this post today my dear friends was for us to draw our attention through music and the wonderful skills of the late B.B. King to the subject of ‘Worry’, Worry catches us all at one point or more in our lives, and some people worry all the time! Worry about not being worthy, worry about not being loved, worry about loving someone, worry about their relationship, worry about life, worry about our children, worry about our jobs, worry about making ends meet each month, worry about work, worry that we are just not good enough, worry about our safety, worry, worry, worry!

Where does worrying get us in the end?……..Absolutely nowhere!……..I don’t think anyone can give you a perfect answer where worrying brought you anything but more worry and more pain, it certainly did not bring an end to your worrying so……! What’s the point in worrying?….Focus on whats good, whats great in your life, focus on the loving people you have in your life, focus on the beauty you see when you look in the mirror, look into your heart, connect with your inner child, connect with the love that you really are, be the light once again that makes you happy, be the joy that brings joy to your life and to the lives of others, be the strength that resolves problems and not the victim of those problems……

STOP WORRYING…..

If you need help with worry issues, please let me know and I would be glad to help.

Namaste with Love

The Passing of a Blues Legend B.B. King

Published 15/05/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

Today is a very unfortunate day, a day in which marks the passing of a Blue Legend B.B King who passed away today at the age of 89 during his sleep at his home in Las Vegas.

As tears run down my eyes, I listen and watch this video at the Crossroads concert in 2010 when BB King was 84 years old, and I recall the joy his music has brought to my life and to millions of music fans all around the world, music is a joy and B B King was a master of Joy.

May his soul now rest in peace as he rocks the Angelic World with his guitar 🙂

Namaste with Love

Mark

Here’s a wishing well, here’s a penny for
Any thought it is that makes you smile
Every diamond dream, everything that brings
Love and happiness to your life

Here’s a rabbit’s foot, take it when you go
So, you’ll always know you’re safe from harm
Wear your ruby shoes when you’re far away
So, you’ll always stay home in your heart

You will always have a lucky star
That shines because of what you are
Even in the deepest dark because your aim is true
And if I could only have one wish, darlin’ then
It would be this, love and happiness for you

Here’s a spinning wheel, use it once you’ve learned
There’s a way to turn the straw to gold
Here’s a rosary, count on every bead
With a prayer to keep the hope you hold

You will always have a lucky star
That shines because of what you are
Even in the deepest dark because your aim is true
And if I could only have one wish, darlin’ then
It would be this, love and happiness for you

And if I could only have one wish, darlin’ then
It would be this, love and happiness for you
