Forward Movement-I

updated 2-10-2019

Which way?!!!!!!!!!!!!   

Forward movement. I dedicate this page to the memory Steve Jobs who died a young man after bringing so much utility and pleasure to millions and millions of people world wide. I feel sorry for Steve Jobs because his time ran out much too soon.

The latest polar vortex has caused me to resume addition to my blog. Winters in Chicago use to frighten me when I was a young boy. Wearing plastic sole shoes and stepping long over ice and snow covered streets; living in a house and home where the wallpaper would puff up when the wind blew; and so much more about the experience of cold.

Thanks to the Creator, circumstance, luck, grit, and most of all…………………..people who loved and cared, I can now visit, at will, the oases of my desire. “God bless the child……………………… thank you Billie Holiday.”

“Where are your badges?”

“Badges? We ain’t got no badges. (and after a very brief moment of reflection) WE DON”T NEED NO BADGES!” Treasure of the Sierra Madre

“Oases? Where are your oases?”

“What oasis? We don’t need no oasis!”

Yes you do. Every human being needs oases. You already have oases whether or not, you have taken the time to recognize and carefully examine the oases of your existence.

Over the years, I have read and heard people voice the statement that love is stronger than hate.

History was my chosen major during my first year or two at the university. Since and beyond the university, I have read, studied a little, and examined man’s inhumanity to man in regards to life and human history. “Sometimes I wonder.”

Love stronger than hate? Yes. Not only “yes”, but “Yes” in bold print.

But what about all of the killing? The mass murders, the genocides, and the multitudes of individual killings, and murders, and other vile acts of violence perpetrated on fellow human beings; What about it?

The answer is still,……………………………………………………………………………………..Yes.

None of what I am writing here comes from some previously read script. Love is stronger than hate because if for no other reason, the love of one’s self, self survival (selfish as it is), is the strongest force that enables us to survive. I have thought and considered long, and the real reality, is love’s hope to survive.

Again, “As” by Stevie Wonder yt

A play on words, but a serious play,…..when one survives, there is hope for real love which is unconditional and not selfish. That is, if one is not demented and insane.

What is real love? Beauty.

What is beauty? That which brings pleasure and joy…………….happiness.

But the broken hearted lover is contentious with the notion that love is beauty. Really. The broken hearted lover will tell you that love hurts. Yes it does. Yes it can. As the songs says, “Love don’t love nobody.”

Love Is A Hurting Thing………. Lou Rawls yt This song is only one of many beautiful songs on this outstanding album titled “Soulin”.

Since I Lost My Baby………., I could Never Love Another……, I wish It Would Rain…………………..The Temptations.

Rodger Penzabene-Wikipedia………………love can be hurtful to the point of tragedy for some. Never allow love to be that hurtful.

You and I know that love is many things, and can be anything.

Love can be anything, (can’t nothing be love but love)……..The Temptations

I like the horns on this soundtrack!

This is a prelude to the focus of my intent this evening………my humble offering of additions to my list of vibrational magic.

Words for thought. My mother use to think that I was feeling blue when I would sit or recline for hours, listening to music, especially if the music consisted of sad love songs or the blues. I told her that no, I was quite happy. The music, the vibrational magic, brought me joy and delight. I was listening to beauty.

Some love songs are truly silly and not well written, but even so, they can convey beauty and connect with some listeners.

You might have heard that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Beauty is in the senses of the beholder.

BEHOLD!……………………………………, the magic of the Magus! (smile)

When you are left in a lonely place by a love that has departed, you alone have the power to make the hurt go away.

Carefully examine every thing, large and small, about your lost love.

No, They Can’t Take That Away From Me………. Patti Austin yt

Your lost lover’s body, the sound of the voice, the mannerisms, the performance, the complete package. The look. Then, come to realize that every significant thing that you found so alluring in your lost love, can be found in a new love. Understanding that each of us is unique, but pretty lips, beautiful eyes, hair (or no hair), nice hands, body (of your desire), all of these things can be found in another.

How much I Feel ………. Ambrosia yt
