Jimi Hendrix – Words, Music and Magic

Jimi Hendrix

Jimi’s been in the air of late, just thought I’d share a little:

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven.

I used to live in a room full of mirrors; all I could see was me. I take my spirit and I crash my mirrors, now the whole world is here for me to see.

I’m the one that has to die when it’s time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to.

You have to give people something to dream on.

Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When things get too heavy, just call me helium, the lightest known gas to man.

When I die, just keep playing the records.”

Thrive – What on earth will it take? (Full Movie)

THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what’s REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream — uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future.

Thrive is a movie that informs and empowers us relating to our roles as humans sharing the earth.  Find out more on their site:

http://www.thrivemovement.com/

I cannot upload the clip onto this blog, to watch the full documentary for free, you will have to enter you’re email and join the site.  Initially I found it a little slick and hollywood, but it soon settles down into a fascinating expose of the way things are and how and why we are being oppressed and who is behind this madness.

It is well worth a couple of hours, ‘Thrive’ opens the doorway to so much diverse knowledge about our history, our infinite potential and those who would take it away from us.

“THRIVE is more than a documentary relevant to the times. It is more than a well-researched and alarming insight into who really controls how the world works. It is a recipe and blueprint for how we can, each and every one of us, thrive in the way that the rest of nature does – easily, naturally and with expansive grace. For this last point alone, it is more than worth the time to see.”

-Odyssey Magazine

If you like the message of ‘Thrive’, please pass it on……

Peace and LightX

Uma Mohan and the meaning of mantras

The Meaning of Mantras

Mantras are vocal offerings, in the ancient language of Sanskrit, to the divine (like a prayer):

What are mantras?      

Mantras are energy-based sounds. The Indian metaphysical tradition explains that the body is composed of the combination of five elements and the first of them is sound. Studies in sound symbolism suggest that vocal sounds have meaning whether we are aware of it or not. And certainly there can be multiple layers of symbolism associated with each sound. So even, if we do not understand them, mantras are not meaningless; no vocal utterance is entirely without meaning.
 
One’s subconscious mind can find its solution through meditation and recitation of mantras. A mantra, when repeated constantly during meditation, first loudly and then through silent and mental chanting, changes the consciousness.

Mantras exist in all languages and religions. For example, Ave Marie is a common mantra chanted by Christians around the world.  A popular Tibetan mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum is chanted for world peace and OM, is considered to be the first primordial sound of the universe.

Why Sanskrit?
Sanskrit is not a religion. It is a language that has been dated back to 3,500 B.C. that is said to be the origin of all the Indo-European languages we speak today.  Sanskrit is a purely phonetic language.  These ancient sounds create energy vibrations that can replace negative energy with positive ones.  When chanting to Sanskrit mantras, the chanter benefits from thousands of years of powerful energy accumulated from the Divine and from the millions of devoted chanters.

Here are some youtube clips of Uma Mohan, an Indian singer, musician, dancer, artist and poet.  Uma has a haunting voice that leaves me spell bound:

The Oneness – We Are All One!

A brief, inspirational mix of video clips, with music that relates to our oneness:

This a quote from the controversial comedian Bill Hicks that effected me greatly as a young chap, helped me to get my head around things:

“The world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. The ride goes up and down, around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it’s very brightly colored, and it’s very loud, and it’s fun for a while. Many people have been on the ride a long time, and they begin to wonder, “Hey, is this real, or is this just a ride?” And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and say, “Hey, don’t worry; don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.” And we … kill those people. “Shut him up! I’ve got a lot invested in this ride, shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.” It’s just a ride. But we always kill the good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok … But it doesn’t matter, because it’s just a ride. And we can change it any time we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. Just a simple choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.”
