MY 2016 NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION ---> RISE! RIGHT NOW!
'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]
Last Daily Awakening, Stranger on the Bus
This morning's Musical DLG™ (Musical Download from God™) called, 'Right Now' by Van Halen (aka Van Hagar) is a song that always makes its way into my brain somewhere around the first of the year. It's probably because I'm so clued into it that it would manifest itself today as my Musical DLG™. I like songs or symphonic masterpieces that have a raindrops prelude and this song certainly has it. For those of you who are neophytes to the site, I wake up every single morning with a song playing outside of my head like its coming from the radio, but there is no radio in the room. The song is completely audible to me, but there is no sound to anyone else. The Musical DLG™ serves as my alarm clock, like clockwork, every single morning.
As I laid in bed listening to the words with my eyes closed, the original video flashed before my eyes as I began to create my Life video inserting my Truths, my reality and my experiences. It is fascinating when I contemplate what I have been challenged to face, on a day basis, and make something wonderful out of myself regardless of those circumstances and RISE! RIGHT NOW!
When it comes to New Year's resolutions, I make one resolution and take it very seriously. Basically I vow to RISE! and become a better person over the next year, as I am faced with my Truth, my reality and my experiences. Every single day, I have to RISE! again. Some of it is pretty damn ugly and some of it is pretty dang sweet. As with most people, I'm between a rock and a bag of mush. Since my early teens I committed to a higher Spiritual Progression Path™ and since my mid-20's I solidified that path by making a dogleg right turn in this direction, which put me front and center on this website. Every year I just keep getting better, which I hope that is what is happening with you. RISE! Over this past year I swore off alcohol in all forms. It's just too difficult to be clear 7 days a week at 3:30 AM to update this website with even one glass of wine in me. I just can't do both, so I choose the website. Alcohol never made me funnier, sweeter or more attractive and I'm better off just being myself. Isn't that usually the case with everything in Life? When you hear me comment in social media about having drinks with someone, I'm drinking the non-alcoholic brands. The Scorpion King and I do have a lot of parties at our house, so going straight keeps me clear at 3:30 AM daily. RISE! RIGHT NOW!
Everyday I vow to live a more simplistic and less needy life. I know what I need and what I don't need. Some of what I need, I will never get, but only because 'I think' I need it, but really I don't. And what I do need, I will always have. But then again, spiritually speaking, I know that whatever I need, will always be at hand. Life is so funny. On those difficult days of just being human and interacting with someone else, minutes later I am still faced with myself to RISE! No matter what I am dealing with spiritually, physically, emotionally, chemically, intuitively or creatively, the end result and the only option I will give myself is to, RISE! RIGHT NOW! That is my New Year's resolution.
"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."
