I am hereby officially
tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided
I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year-old.
I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.
I want to think M&Ms are better than money
because you can eat them.
I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a
lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer's
I want to return to a time when life was simple;
When all you knew were colors, multiplication
tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother
you, because you didn't know what you didn't know
and you didn't care.
All you knew was to be happy because you were
blissfully unaware of all the things that should
make you worried or upset.
I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is
honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible. I want
to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be
overly excited by the little things again.
I want to live simple again. I don't want my day to
consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork,
depressing news, how to survive more days in the
month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills,
gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.
I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a
kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the
imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.
So... here's my checkbook and my car-keys, my credit
card bills and my 401K statements. I am officially
resigning from adulthood.
And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have
to catch me first, cause........
"Tag! You're it."
The Healing Powers Of Ancient Chants
The sages who gave us the ancient Vedic mantras
and hymns were evolved beings who had
either attained or come very close to a
state of pure consciousness. In their
meditations they heard perfect words and
sounds - sublime mantras, sacred wisdom
arising from within. They passed this sacred
wisdom on to their disciples by singing it.
In those days all the scriptures were
sung, and the rishis and sages understood
that chanting the sacred word was an
offering to God for the well-being of the
earth and all its creatures. They knew that
the human voice chanting sacred mantras has
healing power and that these pure sounds
actually replenish the universe, create
harmony, and keep the universe healthy.
