I want to recount my amazing day just this Sunday past…
In the morning my family and I went to St Pauls Cathedral. My nephew Theo is a chorister there ( he’s Joanna Laws boy!!) We heard the incredible cathedral choir perform Mozarts Coronation Mass with the London Sinfonia orchestra under the mighty dome in that glorious building. It was stunningly beautiful , quite overwhelming to me because it was so familiar as I had sung it many moons ago as a chorister at Hereford Cathedral. (This was an extremely formative time for me as a musician, from age 9-14)
Afterwards we had a wonderful family sunday lunch at Carluccios in west Smithfield and then I strolled along the sun drenched Thames embankment to Somerset House (on that afternoon all I could think of was “Yellow was the colour of sunrays!” )
I met all my old friends, and some new! from SIIS. We sound checked, hung out, got ready and then played the most amazing concert in the evening to a fantastic crowd.
Pretty much a perfect day to me…where all this different music made perfect sense. It was simply GOOD MUSIC…..”to elevate your mind and free your soul”
Peace and blessings all, S. xx
Hi Folks, I wanted to pass this on to you all,
Dr. Masaru Emoto, a scientist from Japan, has done acclaimed research and publications about the characteristics of water and how, among other things, water physically responds to emotions. He has proposed a prayer for the Gulf situation. He uses the Hawaiian healing prayer, Ho’oponopono, as part of it, at the end.
Right now, most of us have felt predominantly angry when we consider what is happening in the Gulf. And while certainly we are justified in that emotion, we may be of greater assistance to our planet and its life forms, if we sincerely, powerfully and humbly pray the prayer that Dr Emoto, himself, has proposed.
"I send the energy of love and gratitude to the water and all the living creatures in the Gulf of Mexico and its surroundings. To the whales, dolphins, pelicans, fish, shellfish, plankton’s, corals, algae and all living creatures…..I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you."
We are not powerless. We are powerful.
We don’t have to know how……we just have to recognize that the power of love is greatest force.
