Blow Away…And Let Life Begin Again…

George Harrison knew what he was composing when he wrote this song…

The pandemic came in and sent us all into this vision of mental cloudiness…maybe even a little depression…after two years we are beginning to see some light breaking through the storm clouds of everything that seems to find us…from Covid-19…Politics…Human Rights…Relationships…Life…

Just keep in mind…no matter where you are on the journey…The rain stops…the clouds part…the Sun shines through…Rainbows appear…and all becomes as right as rain once more…Reflect on George’s words…find the song and play it…watch the video…it will warm your heart…and remind you…You will come shining through…Yes…really…you will.

Blow Away….Blow Away…Blow Away

Day turned black, sky ripped apart

Rained for a year ’til it dampened my heart

Cracks and leaks

The floorboards caught rot

About to go down

I had almost forgot

All I got to do is to love you

All I got to be is, be happy

All it’s got to take is some warmth to make it

Blow Away, Blow Away, Blow Away

Sky cleared up, day turned to bright

Closing both eyes now the head filled with light

Hard to remember what a state I was in

Instant amnesia

Yang to the Yin

All I got to do is to love you

All I got to be is, be happy

All it’s got to take is some warmth to make it

Blow Away, Blow Away, Blow Away

Wind blew in, cloud was dispersed

Rainbows appearing, the pressures were burst

Breezes a-singing, now feeling good

The moment passed

Like I knew that it should

All I got to do is to love you

All I got to be is, be happy

All it’s going to take is some warmth to make it

Blow Away, Blow Away, Blow Away

I found this after writing this post…

I was in the garden and it was pouring down with rain, and I suddenly became aware that I was feeling depressed, being affected by the weather. and it’s important to remember that while everything else around you changes, the soul within remains the same; you have to constantly remember that and fight for the right to be happy.”

George Harrison on writing “Blow Away” to Rolling Stone Magazine

Blow it all away…and

Love…

And be happy…..

Being Reborn…is Being Focused…Silent…and Appreciating…Time Alone…

Maybe it’s time to stop reflecting on the negative of the pandemic and appreciate the positives…

To truly be the best of oneself…one must recognize gifts when they are given…

Being reborn is to be focused…to be focused…is to be silent…

To process your life and and the world of lives around you…you need Time Alone…

On this journey to fix the world…we must fix ourselves…Time has been given to all…to do just that.

Bitching and moaning and feeling deprived of “Normal” is not the answer to salvation of what needs to be saved…This pandemic has and is giving everyone time to be reborn…focused…quiet…and renewed…to rebuild you back…better!

Notice how many refuse to surrender and receive this gift. Slow down and stop for a moment to really observe…Resistance is increasing chaos…confusion…depression and delusion….

Eleven days into the New Year is still enough time to understand that this year will be a result of how we manage the gifts we have…and the gifts we’ve been given…and…how we use them.

Use this “Time Alone” mantra…remember it…recite it for the next 354 days…bring the change…by becoming the change…for the better of you…and the better of a world renewed…

Time Alone

Gives me a reason to be

Time Alone…

Lets me be me

Time Alone…

Releases all my fears

Time Alone…

Brings frustrated, cleansing tears

Time Alone…

Opens up my heart

Time Alone…

Offers a brand new start

Time Alone…

Brings forth the Light

Time Alone…

Reveals deeper insight

Time Alone…

Is a special space

Time Alone…

Is my saving grace

Time Alone…

Allows me to enter That Place

And touch…

The Face of God.

To be Reborn…Become Focused…Become Silent…Accept Time Alone…and Become The Change…that manifests the Better…In you…and the world….

Receive the gift….

My Friend…Kristoff

I was shocked and saddened by Kristoff’s passing…He had so much more life ahead of him to experience! However, the loss of his son, and the resulting depression was a tremendous burden to bear…No matter how strong a person is, depression can be difficult to overcome…

Depression is a mental anxiety that can be relentless…and it requires patience, love and attentiveness from loved ones and friends…always!  You take each day, one day at a time…and just when you think you’re on the mend, there’s a “trigger” which catapults you back to that moment, and it becomes a constant struggle to maintain your place and purpose in the world…I’m sure that was the case with Kristoff…the love and goodness of his spirit could not come to grips with his loss….

I met Kristoff back in the 80’s when I worked in the entertainment industry.  He would come into the agency alone or with his father.  We always had great conversations and shared many laughs together.  We became fast friends.   I marveled at Kristoff”s “old soul” aura.  He was so kind and exuded warmth to a fault.

He never flaunted his celebrity or consciously drew attention his way…He was quietly humble, yet sure and articulate when he spoke.  He was always genuine…always down to earth.  Kristoff had this way about him where he made you feel like you were the only person in the room…and he never became ruffled when he was approached by people while having a meal.  He’d ask them to sit down and include them as if he’d known them for years!

I left the industry at the close of the 80’s, and still our paths managed to cross from time to time throughout the years.  One of those times, about 10 years after we met, I happened to see him sitting at the restaurant bar where I was meeting some friends for dinner.  Kristoff looked up and saw me and his face lit up. “Charlene! Have a seat!” I laughed, amazed, and said, “You still remember me after all these years?! And he said,  “Of course, I remember you! What have you been up to?!” He patted the chair next to him.  That was Kristoff…

Rest in Love, Dear Friend……
