Hunger, poverty, war, terrorism… Are a human complication. In which they need human intervention. Not just a governmental one. You can help be apart of the solution by just being considerate of others. Lending a helping hand and reframe from passing judgement can do more than you think. Giving others hope and strength that they can raise above what holds them down, is immensely powerful.
The world we were meant to inhabit
Let your inner beauty be seen by all!
I watch people give away their personal power all too often. Allowing others to provoke them into reactive emotions such as, anger, sadness, self pity, and jealousy. This is giving that person your power. They incite feelings within you, taking control of your emotional state. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about yourself. No matter who that person is to you. Remember your worth and that you are always loved, especially when it doesn’t always feel that way.
It is your Divine right to transport yourself to your personal Heaven

Written by Ryan Tedder, the band’s frontman and songwriter for other pop stars, he was quoted as saying “I felt a responsibility to actually write and sing about things that have a level of human gravity to them” when it comes to the song’s lyrics.
Lately, I’ve been, I’ve been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I’ve been, I’ve been praying hard,
Said, no more counting dollars
We’ll be counting stars, yeah we’ll be counting stars
I really love this song! What spoke to me the most were the lyrics. This is a song I can get down to and actually feel inspired by. Do not get me wrong, I also can get down (well more like grind on a “surfboard”) to Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love” but all that inspires me to do is get drunk and do naughty things (naughty things aren’t always a bad thing just saying).
The chorus really got to me, I have also been dreaming of more. Dreaming of what more I can contribute to this world. I want to share this gift of illumination with all who want it. Praying to find a way to ignite the spark or to fan the flame to become brighter, in others. I took some time off from this blog because I began to manifest my dream, by teaching others that they too have been gifted. We all have that light that shines inside of us! Wasting time on such mundane a thing as money while there are wonders of the world to be discovered. No, thanks. I will continue to provide the necessary amount of attention to have a comfortable living environment, but no longer will I measure my success by the amount of wealth I have accumulated over my lifetime.
I feel something so right
Doing the wrong thing
I feel something so wrong
Doing the right thing
I could lie, couldn’t I, could lie
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive
This section of the second verse is brilliant! The lies we tell ourselves when we make choices that cause damage to our mind, body and/or soul, may be true in the moment. Given time the truth of the action/inaction will be revealed. I have tested this over and over, the lies I have told myself still turn out to be just that lies…
What lies are you telling yourself?
Just some food for thought,
