beyond. beyond. beyond.

an older photograph.
one of those once upon a time photographs.
yet still, and always,
a special photograph.



i needed to share this here. today.

words and a song, that have become a true and constant friend

these past days. these past weeks.

giving a passionate peace, giving an enlightening warmth.

gently reminding me. and maybe even encouraging me.

words that have become a part of the emotions,

and of the chapters (once written and still being written)

and of the journies (once travelled and still be travelled)


these are simply words, a song and a chant,

that mean much.

and i needed to share this here. today.


(and maybe it's a bit of a different way of saying...

merry christmas...

and may all your wishes come true.

and may you go beyond.)



nothing lasts forever,

no one lives forever.

the flower that fades and dies,

winter passes and spring comes,

embrace the cycle of life.

that is the greatest love.


GO BEYOND FEAR

beyond fear takes you into the place where love grows,

when you refuse to follow the impulses of fear, anger and revenge.

BEYOND MEANS TO FEEL YOURSELF.

start every day singing like the birds

singing takes you beyond, beyond, beyond, beyond.

we need a repeated discipline,

a genuine training to let go our old habits of mind

and to find and sustain a new way of seeing.

GO BEYOND THE RIGHTS AND THE WRONGS.

prayer clears the head and brings back peace to the soul.

GO BEYOND TO FEEL THE ONENESS OF THE UNITY

sing.

singing takes you beyond, beyond, beyond, beyond.

we are all the same,

all the same,

looking to find our way back to the source,

to the ONE, to the only ONE.

GO BEYOND REVENGE.

the greatest moment in our lives

is when we allow us to teach each other.

GO BEYOND TO FEEL THE ONENESS OF THE UNITY.

sing.

singing takes you beyond, beyond, beyond, beyond.

TAKE THE JOURNEY INSIDE OF YOU.

to become quiet to hear the beyond.

to become patient to receive the beyond.

to become open to invite the beyond
and be grateful to allow the beyond.

be in the present moment to live in the beyond.

start every day singing like the birds.

singing takes you beyond, beyond, beyond, beyond.

WHAT DOES LOVE HAVE TO DO WITH IT?

LOVE grows when you trust.

when you trust LOVE heals and renews.

LOVE inspires and empowers us to do great things

and makes us a better person to love.

LOVE makes us feel safe and brings us closer to GOD.

when you go beyond that’s where you find true love.

keep singing.
singing takes you
beyond. beyond. beyond.
a spiritual message written by Tina Turner - inspired by Deepak Chopra & Rumi
