just sing about it!
.
There's so much going on. Being human and just waking up and getting going with your day is hard sometimes. And maybe everything is just dandy and sweet--life may be simple, abundant and uncomplicated for you (lucky duck!). Or, perhaps, it's quite the opposite: you have countless obligations, a mountain of debt, stressed relationships, health issues and just "all the things" occupy your mind and heart nonstop.
.
Through all of this, I sing. It doesn't really matter what you sing or how your voice sounds. The important part is to sing out--to make a joyful noise! When we sing out, we can briefly put down all our mind/heart/body/LIFE stuff. Even if just for 3 minutes, we can step off the train of thought and be in the space of Being. When you sing you don't have to be happy or sad or rich or poor or loved or hated or right or wrong or Democrat or Republican. You get to just BE. What a gift! When life gets you down--or way too up, just stop and sing. Let your voice ride the current of your breath as you utter and offer out the sweetness and simplicity of your own Melody.

My songs are often in ancient languages because, well, they let my mind rest. There are fewer word associations. I just sing various names of the One. I just call out and sing at the top of my lungs. And in this space, something can simultaneously rest and awaken. So awaken your voice and let your mind rest for a moment. Whether your song is boisterous or a sweet lullaby to your baby, just sing out. And vote.
