“At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and integrity” –Rachel Naomi Remen, MD

After a while, You Learn, a poem from years ago that still resonates

Many years ago, my sister, Debbie, found this poem somewhere and wrote it down and mailed it to me in a letter.  She was going through a divorce at the time (I think I was too) and these words really helped her.  I recently ran across it on Pinterest (go figure!) and I re-read it.  There is a lot of wisdom in its words, I mean, hopefully you learn as you go, sometimes you let the same things hurt you over and over again but I know I try each time to learn from the experience and try to make the necessary changes in my own attitude or behavior so that the same situation doesn’t repeat itself.  I know that I don’t always succeed, but I do try.  Sometimes we all forget how strong we really are and just need words of encouragement such as this to draw strength from. I wanted to share it because it’s a good reminder that every day we have a new chance to put on our “big girl panties” and stand tall through it all and come out the other side wiser and even stronger.

Across the Universe/Jai Guru Deva OM

Jai Guru Deva om

 
 
 Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup
They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind
Possessing and caressing me
Jai Guru Deva OM
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my worldImages of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes
They call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box
They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe
Jai Guru Deva OM

Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of live are ringing through my open ears
Inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on, across the universe
Jai Guru Deva OM

Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world

Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva

It was said in the beatles song “Across the Universe”. Most simple translation is: “I give thanks to Guru Dev (heavenly teacher) om” Om is just a sound. However a more detailed translation is:

“Jai” means “O Hail” or “Victory to”
“Guru” means “Teacher”
“Deva” means “God/Lord/Demi-God”
“om” some say is the source of all existence that comes from vibration

 
Those of you who know me, know that the last 3 years have been really, really, hard and full of loss, pain  and sadness.  There is still a lot of stress and strife in my life but everyday I get up and make the decision to have the best day I can have and make as many of those around me smile as possible.  I ran across this song today and the meaning of Jai Guru Deva resonated with me so i wanted to share.  I am sending as much positive energy ‘OM” across the universe as I can and trying to deflect the negative away from me.
Have a peaceful day ‘nothings gonna change my world”  its all up to each of us.  Enjoy the video of the Beatles Across the Universe” at the link below
