No one else needs you …

happiness cartoon5“The greatest gift that you could ever give to another is your own happiness, for when you are in a state of joy, happiness, or appreciation, you are fully connected to the Stream of pure, positive Source Energy that is truly who you are. And when you are in that state of connection, anything or anyone that you are holding as your object of attention benefits from your attention.
No one else needs you to be or do things for them in order for them to be fulfilled—for all of them have the same access to the Stream of Well-Being that you do. Often, others (who do not understand that they have access to the Stream) suffer in their inability to hold themselves in a place of feeling good, and ask you to behave in a way that they believe will make them feel better. But not only do they hold you in a place of discomfort as they try to make you responsible for their joy, they hold themselves in a place of bondage as well. For they cannot control the way any other behaves, and if that control is  necessary for their happiness, then they truly are in trouble.”

– Abraham Hicks from ‘Ask and it’s Given’

People come into your life…

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.  

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support,
To aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be. 
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
This person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. 
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. 
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season. 

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,
Things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson,
Love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Yoga of Music

Tomorrow I am playing live with some good musicians at the halloween fest. It’s been a while since I have played live. I’ve been the studio for he last 1.5 years working on my first full length album. My first album, a collection of songs I wrote over a period of time, from the college days until now, is in its final few stages of production.

It feels good when we get to enjoy the fruit of our passion. For the many of us this feeling is the closest we’d be to enlightenment & sheer blissful joy.

For me music is the ultimate form of communication, a form of communication that has always existed, is existing now and will always exist in the nature and in the universe. Music is based on sound vibrations, the very same vibrations that has created this universe. In the beginning was the word, and the word is and shall be. In the India sub-continent music is considered the language of the gods.

Performing music or listening music and getting totally immersed in it is a form of yoga. The union of body, mind & spirit happens when one is immersed in the rhythmic and harmonized bond of the self with the vibrations of the music. This is a form of contact with ‘The Word’.

The only ingredient that sometimes makes music bitter is the lyrics. Words are powerful. Negative lyrics would be darkening.

I am excited to be performing live.
