Discovering Magnetic Resonance of Being


Morning_Fog_LakeAs boiling water is transformed into vapor and seamlessly blends with the surrounding atmosphere, so is death the distillation of life as we know it.  The energy of our thoughts, the electricity of our heartbeat and the knowledge and memories of our mind are distilled by death into the ether of eternal life; but most importantly, surviving as our consciousness.

Floating-Globe-Silver-Med-783070If we are to learn anything about life, observe and remember the elementary lesson of the magnet in science class; opposites attract.  Our human lives on this planet are as images in a mirror, i.e., they are in fact diametrically opposed realities.  What looks like your left hand in the mirror is in (our) reality, your right hand.

And so the dichotomy extends into many facets of our existence as children of God.

  • Life begets Death or Death begets Life (Ending is really a Beginning)
  • Pain & Suffering Yields Peace and Eternal Life
  • Good attracts evil and evil, good
  • Humility & Vulnerability are the birth parents of conviction, strength and resilience
  • Seeking Inner Peace & Harmony leads to the discovery of Magnificence and Glory
  • Focusing on others (and not yourself) illuminates your soul & spirit, creating self-awareness
  • Praying only when needing help is like saving only when needing money

J_Denver_Farewell_AndromedaThe epitome of this paradox is eloquently brought to life by the late John Denver in his song,  “We Don’t Live Here No More”, released on one of his earlier albums entitled “Farewell Andromeda” in 1973.  In the song, Denver metaphorically describes the many seemingly mutually exclusive scenarios of life and encapsulates the mindset within the larger sphere of existence.  He was indeed, a master at transforming thought and emotion into meaningful lyrics and enchanting music.

Here are the lyrics:

Make believe you’re on a boat without water around.    Picture yourself at a circus, without any clowns.

Pretend that you’re on a highway, without any end.  Then empty the ashtray, sweep up the floor, put a lock on your door.

If somebody calls in the morning Just say we don’t live here no more.  Draw me a picture of an island without any sea.

Show me a map of the whole world without boundaries.  Build me a home without windows or doors to go in.

Then empty the ashtray, sweep up the floor, Put a lock on your door.

If somebody calls in the morning Just say we don’t live here no more.  Dream of the time when the tides ebbing now, rise again.

Then you will know, that to die is not really to end.

Living and dying are both your most intimate friends.  So empty the ashtray, sweep up the floor Put a lock on your door.

If somebody calls in the morning Just say we don’t live here no more.
If somebody calls in the morning Just say we don’t live here no more.

Let us all relish in the complexities of life and be comforted and protected by divine guidance when we need it to find our way.  Be well.
