Dolly Parton's New song "Jesus loves me" would go well into yogic translation methinks ...

Gosh ... someone that finally know who they are ... nothing deep or contentious (but still 'on forum')!

Yael Naim sings New Soul
Yael Naim wrote:I am a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit bout how to give and take
But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

La, la, la, la (21x)
La, la, la, la (21x)

See I am a young soul in this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit bout what is true and fake
But why all this hate? try to communicate
Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

La, la, la, la (21x)
La, la, la, la (21x)

This is a happy end
Cause you don't understand
Everything you have done
Why's everything so wrong

This is a happy end
Come and give me your hand
I'll take you far away

I am a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit bout how to give and take
But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

New soul ... (la, la, la, la,...)
In this very strange world ...
Every possible mistake
Possible mistake
Every possible mistake
Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes...

I watched yesterday in BBC and CNN the celebration of Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday, a real leader of humanity.

In London's Hyde Park there was a concert with up to 50.000 people joyfully watching the stars like Will Smitt, Quinn, Amy Winehouse, Leone Lewis, Gery Halliwell and others on the stage to raise funds for Mr. Mandela's HIV/ Aids charity 46664 (his prison number).

Nelson Mandela joined the stars on the stage and told the crowd: "Even as we celebrate, let us remind ourselves that our work is far from complete - our work is for freedom for all."

"Where there is poverty and sickness including Aids, where human beings are being oppressed, there is more work to be done. Our work is for freedom for all."

Understand dualities;
Deepak Chopra wrote:Life is the coexistence of all opposite values. Joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain, up and down, hot and cold, here and there, light and darkness, birth and death. All experience is by contrast, and one would be meaningless without the other.
Aart Jurriaanse wrote:Life is full of dualities, opposites. Despite their apparent opposition, each extreme in a duality is necessary to fully actualize the other. Each depends on the existence of the other. For example, we cannot know honesty if we don’t know deception. The key is to not resist or suppress the negative. We need to acknowledge its existence, though we may choose not to express it. When we embrace wholeness, we move to a higher perspective.

"The light which man has discovered within himself makes him more aware of the dark; through the good which attracts him, he sees the evil which is the line of least resistance; the activity leading to pain simultaneously permits him to visualize the contrasting pleasure, and thus he experiences something of both hell and heaven.
