As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

Here’s another one.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

INSPIRING STORY

With the year’s passing of beloved musician and composer Leonard Cohen, it only seems fitting that his timeless song “Hallelujah” should be going viral once again.

At the Killard House School’s choir concert in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland, young Kaylee Rodgers sang a stunning version of Cohen’s most classic tune with modified lyrics. Kaylee’s voice is soaring and rich, but it’s her story that is perhaps most uplifting.

Kaylee happens to have autism and ADHD, and because she was so shy at school, she had a hard time participating in class.

The principal of Killard House, Colin Millar, explains that she

“wouldn’t really read out in class … so to stand and perform in front of an audience is amazing …

It takes a lot of effort on Kaylee’s part.”

Kaylee’s music teacher, Lloyd Scates, played a large role in helping her find the confidence to sing.

Her mother divulged that “she always loved singing, but it wasn’t until she started at Killard House School that she really came into her own. Mr. Scates is like her safety blanket – he’s amazing.”

Watch the video below to witness Kaylee’s touching transformation.

The lyrics of this modified version were written by contemporary Christian rock band Cloverton.

THROUGH YOUR EYES

So much beauty can be seen through your eyes.

So much beauty can be seen in the eyes.

The eyes are the windows to the soul.

This song is so soothing.

It touches the soul and takes away feelings of stress and negativity.

Peace of mind, peace of the spirit … incredible to feel.

Hope you enjoy it.

Kevin Kern is one of my favorite New Age musicians.

EYES

Sometimes a miraculous thing happens.

The body ages,
And the skin crinkles like an old plastic bag.
And even though the body fades, the soul still fights on.
And the soul comes through the eyes.
And the most crinkled, faded old people will have the deepest eyes.

Sometimes deeper than any others.

Their soul comes through their eyes and draws everything in.
They glow with a brilliance earned over many years,
And even though the body withers, the eyes stay bright.

WAR CHILD

Little girl, trying to sleep in your bed
don’t listen to the sound of the bombs nearby
just close your eyes and try not to cry
and let your brother sing you a lullaby.
And don’t listen to the noise of the guns
as the bullets flash by your door, don’t cry
just think of the peace found in sleep
while your brother sings you a lullaby.
Little girl, as you sleep in your bed
when you dream, try not to dream of the day
when soldiers came with their guns
and took your father away.
And when you wake up to a new day
looking for the sun, through the dust and smoke
try to find some hope in that terrible place
as you and your brother strive to cope.
Little girl, war is the world of grown ups
and there is nothing you can do
even if you tell them of your fear and sorrow
no one will listen to you.
But when the war is over and done
and you no longer hear an exploding shell
maybe your young life will be a better place
more like Heaven and less like Hell.

Thoughts for today, #176 …. “Escape …. common beliefs”!!

The Afterlife of Billy Fingers!

Its subtitle is How My Bad-Boy Brother Proved to Me There’s Life After Death and it likely comes under the category of New Age or Death & the Afterlife.

I’ve read a variety of books in these categories, but I’ve read nothing like this one.

In The Afterlife of Billy Fingers, Billy’s real sister, Annie Kegan chronicles very unique and special information she receives directly through Billy about the afterlife and his soul experience as it ascends to higher and higher places on the other side.

From the beginning, I could not put this book down. It’s a kind of spiritual “thriller.” When Billy first appears to Annie, she cannot believe this is happening to her. She also is dead set against writing a book that would “expose” her relationship with her “bad-boy” brother.

However, she’s in a writers group, and she can’t help but be curious about Billy’s continuous showing up – sometimes with material evidence she cannot deny.

She refers to going on a “cosmic journey” with Billy in this interview. Eventually, his persistence pays off, and Annie decides to write the book Billy desires to write with

her – “their” book!

TOM BARABAS

I was browsing through the net, looking for something new (to me), interesting, creative, inspirational and soothing to post “at the end of the day”. This is what I crave for after these recent days. Something where my soul can feel comfort, peace and tranquility. 

I think I found it. I would like to share it with you.

Hope that you enjoy it as much as I have. 

Sed

Tom Barabas is an American-Hungarian pianist/keyboardist. He studied classical music at the Caracas Conservatory in Venezuela before developing a taste for rock, jazz, and New Age.

~~Childhood~~

Barabas spent his childhood in Hungary, and emigrated to the US in the 1960s, living and composing in San Diego, California. In the classic style of great, onstage performers, Tom Barabas delivers a musically eloquent experience that builds rapport with his audience and invites them to fall in love with his graceful streams of sound.

An Early Start – Tom began playing music at the age of four in Budapest, Hungary. By age 12, he had attracted the interest and praise of his piano instructors and he made his public debut at the Liszt Conservatory of Music.

In 1949 his family emigrated to Venezuela where he studied classical piano and composition at the Venezuela Conservatory of Music in Caracas, Venezuela’s “Juilliard”. He earned his Master’s Degree in 1957.

TM2

~~Reviews~~

“Tom’s performance was sensational. The artistry of his music and his personal charm enriched the evening for everyone. We thank him for sharing his exceptional talents with us.”

Nancy Mulligan, ASPEN Productions, Inc.

National reviewer, P.J. Birosik’s response to Tom’s music echoes the sentiments of his fans across the country – ”Barabas composes richly harmonic and well-articulated pieces that satisfy the soul and stir the imagination.” He performs with an intimacy, spontaneity and living warmth that sets him apart from other instrumentalists. His technique combines classical, Latin and jazz traditions in an unmistakably personal and joyful style.

What Is Spiritual Enlightenment or Spiritual Awakening?

A definition of spiritual enlightenment or spiritual awakening is hard to pin down.

This is, in part, because “spiritual enlightenment” and “spiritual awakening” have been used in so many ways to describe so many things, similar to the way in which “love” is used to describe everything from a preference for ice cream to a merging with everything. And it is also because spiritual enlightenment and spiritual awakening are such rich and complex experiences that they are innately hard to define.

Some definitions are very specific and narrow. One such definition for spiritual enlightenment is the complete dissolution of one’s identity as a separate self with no trace of the egoic mind remaining. This sets the bar very high and means that very few people qualify as enlightened. 

The opposite approach is to say that everyone is enlightened, that there is only awake consciousness. In this view, it’s only a question of whether this natural awakeness has been recognized or not. Of course, when a word describes everything or everyone, it loses some of its usefulness. If everyone is enlightened, then why even talk about it?

Spiritual awakening or spiritual enlightenment is the realization of our true nature.

The 3 stages of spiritual awakening

~Stage 1~

Softening the intellect and ego: this process is done by actively exploring the ideas and understandings, essentially becoming conversant with the ideas, bringing a sense of acceptance and ultimately leading to an acceptance of safety for the individual.

The key to moving beyond this stage is to accept the safely of the person to allow this information as real and valuable.  Much of the information in ‘spiritual’ understanding is asked to be taken on faith, ultimately  given such an intellectuality lead society, most people cannot do this enough to accept their full safety in taking their exploration further. Only an initial intellectual understanding, to some degree, will lead to a willing conscious exploration going further, without this the person becomes scared and contracts their awakening and their motivation to take this further is withdrawn.

Success comes when the person intellectuality accepts a world view and regards it as safe for them to explore further, until that point, the awakening is halted.

~Stage 2~

Awakening to the inner senses.  This experience if gaining information from the ‘inner’ reality rather than just the intellectuality accepted reality is stage 2 and brings the person further along the path of self discovery.  There is obviously more information on the ‘spiritual’ path in the inner realms of reality: the search for the self does happen within the 5 sense world, it is an inner journey of self discovery. These inner senses then, bring information to the person that cannot be immediately confirmed by the intellect, requiring the person to validate their own inner communications as real.    A feeling or gut instinct is information gained from the inner reality by the inner senses.

In truth, owing to the true nature of the identity of which you are a part, each person is wholly and naturally conversant with their own inner intuitive and psychic senses, the key to stage 2 in the awakening process is to consciously accept this as VALID information and a valid process.  The key benefit here is that in accepting the information as valid and real, the person accepts their own inner identity as real and valid: a major step in the awakening process.

~Step 3~

Becoming Conscious of Self: Full conscious awakening is the final step in this process involving the bringing together of both ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ reality and conscious use of that information.  Once a person accepts that their identity in fact ‘straddles’ inner and outer reality and that they can gain valid information both aspects of their experience the full awakening process is starting.  Once again, this process can take years or moments to unfold but this awakening is the final process in the ‘soul’ awakening to itself, which is of course, the person waking up to who they really are, the soul in flesh.

This final step brings with it an unconditional change within the person where they are consciously aware of their identity as separate independent but in co-operation with the physical body, whilst being consciously aware of their broader identity.
