You don’t have to be affiliated with a particular church or religion to know that mankind has always looked to the heavens to praise, pray, give thanks, worship or ask for guidance and assistance through music.
In good times and bad, spiritual music can create balance in our lives and reinforce our beliefs in the Divine power that lies within us…is greater than our mortal self…and is the Creator of the Universe.
If you’re like me, you may also be as exhausted as I am of the never ending proliferous flow of negativity that pervades our world today.
The borage comes from talk radio, to newspapers, to mainstream media, to the internet, to talk shows, to a.m., mid day and evening magazine shows, and then there are all the so called reality shows proudly displaying people acting badly, hurting one another, cheating, lying, and stealing. Oh, and don’t forget the crime shows of rapists and serial killers…ugh!!
It’s enough to make you want to hide in a cave and never come out. You could even start believing the world is a living hell or the very least, turn a sane man insane, or an uplifted man to despair and depression.
Well, I say it’s all here. All around us. All the time. The trick is to block out the darkness and focus on the light and the goodness that you desire.
Sometimes it’s easy to find and other times it takes a little effort. But all the good, all the love, all of God is within us, and outside of us.
I generally avoid negative programming like the plague. Oh, its one thing to stay informed, but quite another to succumb…willingly to the constant onslaught of negativity. It ultimately crushes the spirit!
