Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences; all events are blessings given to us to learn from.

The song that is playing is "Show the Way" by David Wilcox.


At times like these, with so much anger on the news and uncertainty surrounding a loved one, I turn to music. A favorite inspirational song of mine in times of uncertainty and fear comes from David Wilcox (www.davidwilcox.com). I will share his words with you (with very slight changes for format purposes), as I play the message of hope over and over in my head:

SHOW THE WAY

You say you see no hope,
you say you see no reason we should dream that the world would ever change
You're saying Love is foolish to believe
'Cause there'll always be some crazy with an army or a knife
To wake you from your day dream,
put the Fear back in your life...

But look, if someone wrote a play just to glorify what's stronger than hate,
would they not arrange the stage to look as if the hero came too late
He's almost in defeat
It's looking like the evil side will win,
we're on the edge of every seat,

But, from the moment that the whole thing began
It is Love who makes the mortar
And it's Love who stacked these stones
And it's Love who made the stage here
Although it looks like we're alone
In this scene set in shadows
Like the night is here to stay
There is evil cast around us

But it's Love that wrote the play...
And, in this darkness, Love can show the way

So now the stage is set.
You feel you own heart beating in your chest.
This life's not over yet.
so we get up on our feet and do our best.
We play against the Fear.
We play against the reasons not to try
We're playing for the tears burning in the happy angel's eyes

For It is Love who makes the mortar
And it's Love who stacked these stones
And it's Love who made the stage here
Although it looks like we're alone
In this scene set in shadows
It looks like the night is here to stay
There is evil cast around us
But it's Love that wrote the play...
And, in this darkness, love can show the way

So, keep those candles lit, a sign of Love and hope conquering the darkness of Fear. Trusting that love, however it is you conceive it, keep one palm toward the sky, and the other toward Liz. I firmly believe that no matter your religious or spiritual beliefs, it makes a difference.

Blessings.
