I am going to share with you two of my favourite songs:-
I feel that between them, these two, encompass much of my life, and my thoughts and aspirations that I have shared with you so far, in these first 71 ‘Offerings’.
I hope that the lyrics(and the material I have shared so far) will help you too, to approach everything with an open mind, and therefore not be stilted by previous unbending long-held ideas, just because they are that!
My thoughts and views that I have shared, stem from a mindset that has, over my 71 years, gelled and crystallised into one that is fully open to all possibilities, and yet not held back from living to the full.. in the moment, by the harbouring of any fear of loss that comes from clinging to any one thing, viewpoint, person, or situation… a fear that closes the mind by shrinking its horizons and tunnelling its vision.
Fear of loss, that comes from any clinging attachment, reduces the potential of a wider experience and understanding, and the ability to exercise a well informed/balanced approach to everything… physical, metaphysical, emotional, and psychological. ☺️
Here are the songs:- Their interpretation will be absolutely personal, and up to you, but always be open to the possibility of can change with changing thoughts and circumstances. And.. try listening to them again when things are different in your life…
I hope you find them both enjoyable and, at the same time, helpful…..
Song 2 Lyrics:-
“I Find Your Love.” (Beth Neilsen Chapman)…..
I’ll catch your smile on someone’s face, Your whisper in the wind’s embrace, Through diamond stars and songs, and dreams… I find your love in everything.
The sun, the sky, the rolling sea, All conspire to comfort me. From sorrow’s edge, life’s beauty seems. To find your love in everything.
I’ve come to trust the hope it brings, To find your love in everything.. Even as I fall apart, Even through my shattered heart.
I’ll catch your smile on someone’s face. Amazing grace!
