Hear and I answer. Spend much time in prayer. Prayer is of many kinds, but of whatever kind, prayer is the linking up of the soul and mind and heart to God. So that if it is only a glance of faith, a look or word of Love, or confidence, and no supplication is expressed, it yet follows that supply and all necessary are secured. Because the soul, being linked to God, united to Him, receives in and through Him all things. And the soul, when in human form, needs too the things belonging to its habitation.
Submit yourself to My Control, My Kingship; then the sting is taken out of life’s rebuffs.Welcome each contact as of My planning. Be ready to widen your circle of influence at My wish. Don’t let age, other limitations daunt you. Trust Me. Can I not judge your fitness for a task I give you? Have not I Love for your acquaintances as well as for you? Do not question My decisions. All is planned in Love all My children. Only self-will can hinder the carrying out of the Divinely ConceivedPlan. Work gladly, knowing all needed wisdom shall be provided, also all needed material to doMy Work.
If Todd Rundgren’s 1972 album ‘SOMETHING/ANYTHING?’ had set certain expectations with listeners — namely, that he was a cool new hit maker, albeit one with an eccentric streak — he spent the next several years disabusing them of that notion. In fact, his 1974 double album TODD, in particular, showed him to be a full-on eccentric who just happened to be capable of writing conventional hits, when the mood struck him.
For example, “I Think You Know” a fine ballad, but one spiked with noisy crashes and incongruent synth flourishes. The noise continues on the following song, “The Spark of Life,” which is ALL incongruent synth flourishes; neither were destined to make radio playlists or impact the pop chart, as did “Hello It’s Me” two years before.
The sequencing of the record is also eccentric. “A Dream Goes On Forever” is one of his best songs, period. The lyrical focus moves from outward to inward as the song progresses, from soldiers fading away, to true loves dying, to everyday hopes and fears experienced. In the end, he draws the lens in to his own heart (“You’re so long ago and so far away … I guess I believe that I’ll see you one day” “How much I love you you’ll never know / ‘Til you join me within my dream”).
It’s a perfectly mournful pop moment that he follows with “Lord Chancellor’s Nightmare,” a goofy, Python-esque word-drool with sound effects that often compete with Rundgren’s almost indecipherable vocal. One can imagine hardcore fans spending hours memorizing the whole thing and feeling a sense of accomplishment when they recite it all the first time.
“Drunken Blue Rooster,” an instrumental exercise featuring Rundgren on many keyboards (like an eight-armed Rick Wakeman at an early ‘70s Yes show), serves as an oddball prelude to the heart-tugging “The Last Ride,” a soul ballad about a man “more a fool than alive” who “turned away love when [he] needed it most.” It’s elegiac — something significant is ending at the end of the drive, so he takes his time, moving through town (“No use running,” he sings, “take it slower”). THAT is followed by the hyper-distorted garage stomp of “Everybody’s Going to Heaven / King Kong Reggae,” which flattens the somber spirit of “The Last Ride” like an anvil falling on a cream puff.
Rundgren continues to get his rocks off on the cranky and cranked-up “Heavy Metal Kids,” only to segue into “In and Out the Chakras We Go,” six minutes of spacy prog that would have sounded at home on a Camel or Soft Machine album. It’s the kind of music he would soon be making with Utopia, using the band as an outlet for his more progressive tendencies.
TODD is not as impenetrable as some would have you believe. It’s one of those albums that benefits from repeated listening, with layers of interesting moments and beauty that reveal themselves only gradually. It requires patience, but richly rewards those willing to make the effort.

do ask yourself yourself; perhaps with family members present on within a zone where your enunciation is very clear. ASK THIS:”DID THOSE WHO ARE BURIED AT ARLINGTON CEMETERY in WASHINGTON d.c. LOSE ALL OF LIFE TO ATTEND THAT HALLOWED GROUNDS FOR OUR GOVERNMENT WHO DO RUN FROM THEIR OBLIGATION? THAT EACH MAN OF SERVICE WHO HAD, HAS SWORN TO DEFEND OUR SET OF PROMISES GIVEN BY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS FINAL RESTING PLACE IS LIMITED FOR COMMANDING RESPECT FOR ALL THOSE PERSONS THAT GO BY THE NAME OF VETERAN.

April 25 – Bless Your Enemies
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good; them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. Matthew 5:44
Say often, “God bless . . ,” of any whom you find in disharmony with you, or whom you desire to help. Do say it, willing that showers of blessings and joy and success may fall upon them. Leave to Me that necessary correcting or training; you must only desire joy and blessing for them. At present your prayers are that they should be taught and corrected.Oh! If My children would leave My work to Me and occupy themselves with the task I give them. Love, love, love. Love will break down all your difficulties. Love will build up all your successes. God the destroyer of evil, God the creator of good — is Love. To Love one another is to use God in your life. To use God is your life is to bring into manifestation all harmony, beauty, joy, and happiness.
Life may not come with a map, we all experience twists and turns, in that everyday challenges to traumatic events with more lasting impact, like a death a loved one, life-altering accident, or a serious illness. Each change affects people differently, bringing unique floods of thought, strong emotions, uncertainty. And so people in general adapt well over time; life-changing situations, to stressful situations part with thanks to resilience.
here’s a job for any of you who pay mind to our essays, generally believe us;peace.
you know, ‘m certain there’s a ‘sniglet,’ or something that provides definition for the the act of piracy in the conceptual dimension. stealing of idea is sort of assuredly a most profitable crime. especially, the preceding word should be, OR italicized, bold or an irrefutable member of some unique class of words; big fan of Rich Hall am in one subject some may feign any title of it provided. THIS MASTER of the English Language did, to me anyhow, expose everybody to a clever charge in connection with the word.
some may disprove of us coupling brash, at times offensive material cussing and stuff
with beautiful prose. however, rethink or not that opinion.. realize that everything is one. beauty of the coffee you just drank, to the slap some just gave you. ‘stuff’ ‘things,’ are it’s all in the plan, either accidental or not stuff happens at the precise time, precise location to costar with the movement you never see ever. those variegated actions make up the that wonderful experience we are all, each one of us are living in is saying about the breeze in Africa effecting/affecting the typhoon in the Gulf of Mexico half a world away. bringing calamity to all life, live’s in ‘it’s’ path is as factual as WE think. for Everythingis connected; there’s no getting around it. that’s the law of nature.
Our world is no perfect place nor will it ever be but the setting sun promises the darkness of night and the breaking dawn the rising sun, I thank the Lord for another day in His wonderful world. All your problems have a solution if you place your trust in the Lord.
These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, that your joy maybe full. John 15:11
You have to hush the heart and bid all your senses be still before you can be attuned to receive Heaven’s Music.Your five senses are means of your communication with material worlds, the links between your real Spirit-Life and of the material manifestations around you, but you must sever all connection with them, when you wish to hold Spirit-Communication. They will hinder; see the good in everybody.
Love the good in them. See our unworthiness compared with their worth. Love, laugh, make the world, your little world, happy. The ripples caused by a flung stone stirs the surface of a entire pond, so your Joy-Making shall spread in widening circles, beyond our knowledge, all anticipation. Joy in Me. Joy is eternal.
Centuries after, it is still Joy’s precious fruit.
