Ideas of Love

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

Valentine’s Day is upon us. Are you tired of the marketing yet? Society loves to skew our ideas of love! It’s no wonder we can’t find it – or find what we think love is. Honestly we have no clue what we’re looking for. And by not knowing, we’re missing the purpose of life, which is to love!

Romantic relationships are part of that, or at least the positive ones are. But right now especially, we overlook the love we have by searching for something else. Someone said, “Life is what happens while we’re making other plans.” And, “Man plans; God laughs.” True statements… But there is hope, and there is love, in this very moment, whether we have romance in our lives or not.

Love is infinite, eternal, and universal. That means love is yours, mine, and everyone’s. May this song, as limited as it is, remind us to snap out of it, laugh at the marketing, and have a Happy Valentine’s Day with those forms of love we already have!

This does not mean we should ignore our desire for other forms of love. In fact, ignoring it is detrimental. However, if we focus on what we don’t have, we get more negativity. By fully embracing the love in our experience, we open the door to more! And we feel better in the meantime, because we’re not living in lack. Life already loves us! Why not love it in return?

May we learn to love from the Spirit of Love that created us! And may we improve a society that believes love can be bought and sold!

Ideas of Love – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

Refrain:
Let go of your ideas of love,
And let the Father show you his!
Let go of your ideas of love,
And see the good already in your life to give you bliss.

1. Children love a pizza just as much as they love you.
They focus on the happiness it brings.
They love their bikes and friends and toys and makin’ messy things.
Kids really pick the perfect thing to do!
Refrain:

2. Our cats and dogs, they love to run and greet us comin’ in.
They know the fullest happiness right now.
Pets eat and play and sleep and play, and people wonder how.
But we could take a tip or two from them!
Refrain:

3. Love is the greatest of connections God has made in us.
It flows through all our time and breath and space.
Let’s use it everywhere we go to look in every face.
The love we give is never given up!
Refrain:

Let go of your ideas of love!

Exercise Our Right to Try Again

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

If you haven’t broken your New Year’s resolutions yet, this song is not for you. But listen anyway, because you’ve probably broken one before. It’s time to put this phenomenon in its proper place, so we can move on and live well!

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. So we made our resolutions
To start a revolution,
But they must be delusions
‘Cause we feiled ’em, every one.
The time and money saving,
The work to quit the craving,
But what’s the use of raving
When a new day has begun!
Refrain

2. May we never stop resolving,
Connecting and involving,
Progressing and evolving
Til we make it, every one.
And give our hearts in caring,
Extend our hands in sharing,
And let our minds be daring
For a better way has come!
Refrain: (Twice)

Let us exercise our right to try again!

Refrain:
And we can exercise our right to try again,
start anew and simply do the best we can!
And if we fail and try and fail again,
We just engage the backup plan
And exercise our right to try again.
We exercise our right to try again!

(Capo 1)

1. Love’s the greatest Power we will ever know.
It made the earth and sky and sea and everything that grows.

‘Cause Love’s the greatest Power we will ever know.
So
Refrain:

2. Love’s the greatest gift that we will ever give.
In every thought and feeling, it says we deserve to live.
Already at our service, Love awaits our joining in,
‘Cause Love’s the greatest gift that we will ever give.
So
Refrain:

3. May you know the Love the Spirit has for you,
In heart and soul and mind, no matter what you’re going through.
Not from any work, but in the Grace that makes you new.
O may you know the Love the Spirit has for you.
And
Refrain: (Twice)

Let Love fill your soul!

Let Love
Be the choice in your life.

Fruit Salad

Happy New Year to each one of you, your friends, family, loved ones, and every person you encounter!

Not all people are easy to get along with, but that’s part of the fruit salad of life! If nothing else, they help us appreciate those fruits–people, events, and situations–we prefer.

I don’t know what this year holds for me, much less for you. One thing I do know, life is a fruitful experience when we give thanks for every aspect, by the Power of the Universe working through us!

Fruit Salad – Lyrics

Interestingly enough, the refrain and each verse is a
Limerick,
creating a song with a light, but important message.

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar
(capo 3)

Refrain:
O life is a salad of fruit
With cherries and lemons to boot.
The sour is sad,
The bitter is bad,
So in every blessing, salute!

1. Mango and pineapple sing.
Oranges and strawberries ring.
The blueberries burst
With flavor at first,
The sweetness a marvelous thing!
Refrain:

2. Lemons and limes are sublime
And better off one at a time.
They burst with a bang
Of terrible tang,
The power to cleanse is divine!
Refrain:

3. Bananas and apples and grapes,
The fruits that most people will take.
But bursting and blessed
Are all of the rest.
So open on up and partake!
Refrain: (Twice)

‘Cause life is a salad of fruit!

Blessings Be upon You

God bless us!

This does not sound like a Christmas song. Even people surrounded by family and others can feel most isolated at this time of year. And if my prayer list is any indication, people want to feel some glimmer of hope and blessings, now more than ever! That’s why this isn’t a Christmas song, and why most of my holiday songs are more generic–because it’s not only on a holiday that we long to experience something higher than our human thoughts and circumstances! This longing is universal, and Higher Consciousness is, too! And so, may blessings be upon you, now and always!

Numbers 6:24-26 (NKJV)

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”

Blessings Be upon You – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. When times are dark and dreary
And you feel worn and weary,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain:

2. When every wish you’ve wanted
Is like a haunting hunter,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain:

3. When careless words are working
To keep you hard and hurting,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain: (Twice)

May the Lord give you peace!

Refrain:
The Lord bless you and keep you
And shine His face upon you.
The Lord be gracious unto you
And give you peace.
The Lord give you peace!

And the burden of proof disheartens your truth,
A stillness inside awaits to confide:

And the burden of stress is heavy at best,
A stillness within can help you begin:
Your advent unfolds! Christ born in your soul!

And the burden of sound is chaos all ’round,
A stillness in you keeps breaking through:

Nothing can save but the Spirit who made you.
Worry and woe, let ’em go,
And lift your eyes to find
The Christ Light in your mind!

Mountain of the Lord

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

Isaiah 2:1-3,5 (NKJV)

Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
That the mountain of the Lord’s house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.
Many people shall come and say,
“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
O house of Jacob, come and let us walk
In the light of the Lord.

The Mountain of the Lord

Mystically understood, the Lord’s mountain is a meditative state, a place of Higher Consciousness. It rises above the hillsides, the height, of everyday awareness to something greater. And it is for everyone, for all nations, all people, not just a chosen few. The mountain of the Lord is always present, and we can climb it, learn his ways, and walk in his light in our daily lives.

Mountain of the Lord – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

Refrain:
*”Come!
Let us go up (3x)
Up to the mountain of the Lord!
Repeat from *.

1. His house is greatest,
His mountain highest,
And every nation shall flow to it, saying,
Refrain:

2. There on his mountain,
His ways he teaches,
And every nation shall flow to it, saying,
Refrain:

3. His mountain rises
Above the hillsides,
And every nation shall flow to it, saying,
Refrain: (Twice)

Up to the mountain of the Lord!
“Come!
Let us go up (3x)
