Amos Lee - Keep it Loose, Keep it Tight (Live @ Abbey Road)

"The Many Wines"

God has given us a dark wine so potent that,
drinking it, we leave the two worlds.

God has put into the form of hashish a power
to deliver the taster from self-consciousness.

God has made sleep so that
it erases every thought.

God made Majnun love Layla so much that
just her dog would cause confusion in him.

There are thousands of wines
that can take over our minds.

Don't think all ecstacies
are the same!

Jesus was lost in his love for God.
His donkey was drunk with barley.

Drink from the presence of saints,
not from those other jars.

Every object, every being,
is a jar full of delight.

Be a connoisseur,
and taste with caution.

Any wine will get you high.
Judge like a king, and choose the purest,

the ones unadulterated with fear,
or some urgency about "what's needed."

Drink the wine that moves you
as a camel moves when it's been untied,
and is just ambling about.

From Urania's Mirror: Gemini, 1825

Expect a turning-point in your destiny. Just hold tight to your inspirations which could get lost in the reshuffle. Mercury's backward movement indicates that the personal side of your life is about to get an airing. And this does your relationship a power of good!

And So It Is

And So It Is, originally uploaded by Thomas Hawk.

Right now, I am still and know that I am a powerful co-creator. All my dreams are within my grasp. I see them, I feel them, I live them.
I am grateful.

Thought for the Day.

Divine Order
I recognize and accept this divine order day.

On occasion, I may need to remind myself to think affirmatively rather than to think negatively about situations. This is important, because my very thoughts can either lift my spirits and encourage me on or they can bring me down and stop me in my tracks.

Affirming divine order is a concise, powerful way of contributing to the best outcome of every situation. It's as if while writing an outline of how I think my day should be, I hit the "escape" key so that I can start over and experience something even better.

How could I possibly do better than to affirm a divine order day? Because I do, I am ready for the best each day: I recognize it, and I accept it.

"Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. Let your good spirit lead me on a level path."--Psalm 143:10

Train drops of jupiter

Pierced my heart and made it burst into flame

Now that shes back in the atmosphere
With drops of jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that theres time to change, hey, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like june, hey, hey

Tell me did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the milky way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking at yourself out there

Now that shes back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
She checks out mozart while she does tae-bo
Reminds me that theres time to grow, hey, hey

Now that shes back in the atmosphere
Im afraid that she might think of me as plain ol jane
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back to the milky way
And tell me, did venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you even when I know youre wrong
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance five-hour phone
The best soy latte that you ever had . . . and me

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back toward the milky way

Dance of The Moon and Stars

He who understands the Way is certain to have command of basic principles. He who has command of basic principles is certain to know how to deal with circumstances. And he who knows how to deal with circumstances will not allow things to do him harm. When a man has perfect virtue (te), fire cannot burn him, water cannot drown him, cold and heat cannot affect him, birds and beasts cannot injure him.
