The times we have lived through Tom, the wonderful music, the soundtrack of our hopes and dreams? I still love music it has been a friend in some bad times and also of course now the Shabd. The song takes me back to those times, the first Mahatma I heard, was called Ashokanand, I saw him at the Quaker hall in Birmingham uk in 1971/2 and he said, “everything is a vibration and they all come from one vibration”. I remembered that when I first heard about string theory many years later, it made me smile. We think we are so great yet look around, we are so blinded by greed, by, power and we and our world suffers. We no longer look at a tree as a beautiful living thing we see how much its worth in its death. The Big yellow taxi song, prophetic or what.
Tom take care, surrender the river runs at its own speed we just have to go with it.
“I'm a cork on the Ocean, floating over the raging sea
how deep is the ocean? I lost my way, hey, hey, hey.
I'm a rock in a landslide, rolling over the mountain side, how deep is the valley?
I'm a leaf on a windy day, pretty soon I'll be blowing away, how long will the wind blow?
Until die, until I die, these things I'll be until I die”.
Beach Boys, Surfs Up, “Till I die” [www.youtube.com]
