Just because …We Love – For You To Be Happy Today!

Looking at beautiful pictures is an incentive to our brain neurons to produce dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins to makes us feel good, better, happy, up-beat. Also reading few encouraging lines, and peaceful notes of love, is good enough to activate these hormones and neurotransmitters to make us go stronger and more hopeful through out our day. So here are some for today!

When you love, you don’t abandon …ever!

“The sun does not abandon the moon to darkness.” ― Brian A. McBride,

Climb Every Mountain Inspiring Song Shirley Basey Video

CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN

climb every mountain music inspiration dra martha castro mexico

I watched Barbra Streisand concert, delightful voice, BUT, Barbara Streisand misunderstood this or decided to change the meaning of the song. She sang a song from the “Sound Of Music”. (My favorite version is with one of my best-loved singers of all times: Dame Shirley Bassey). I have a problem with a part of the lyrics.

I will tell you first a little bit of my musical experience so you know why I dare to criticize (in a constructive way, of course) the lyrics and Barbara Sreisand.

Barbra Streisand lacks that philosophy heart and didn’t put it together correctly. She was the director of her own concert, and this was a flaw of hers

I happen to be a musician. I play the guitar and sing very well, actually. I sang professionally in my youth to pay for my medical career.

climb every mountain music inspiration dra martha castro mexico

I studied music, singing lessons and musical composicion: music and lyrics, in Bellas Artes in Mexico City. So I think I have a very good idea of what I am talking about, but I am always open for a healthy debate and to change my mind if somebody is willing to explain to me why I am wrong in my assertion about this song:

The problem I have with, is highlighted and I will tell you why below the lyrics:

Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
‘Till you find your dream

It should say “reach” your dream, not find your dream. You already need to have had found your dream, this is “know” your dream, then climb every mountain, until you reach it.

And I don’t see any problem with the rhyme. Changing the word find to reach would not affect the tune nor the octaves, but it would make a lot more sense, and it would have more psychological and inspirational impact, in my opinion.

Message For All Of Humanity Charlie Chaplin

In these difficult times that humanity is going through, we all need to be inspired and motivated. We need to hear messages of hope and wisdom.

I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor
That’s not my business
I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone
I should like to help everyone if possible
Jew, Gentile, Black Man, White
We all want to help one another, human beings are like that
We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery
We don’t want to hate and despise one another.

And this world has room for everyone, and the good Earth is rich and can provide for everyone
The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way
Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed
We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in
Machinery that gives us abundance has left us in want

Our knowledge has made us cynical
Our cleverness, hard and unkind
We think too much, and feel too little
More than machinery, we need humanity

More that cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness
Without these qualities life will be violent, and all will be lost

The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together
The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men – cries out for universal brotherhood – for the unity of us all
Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world – millions of despairing men, women, and little children – victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people
To those who can hear me, I say – do not despair

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed – the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people
And so long as men die, liberty will never perish

Soldiers!
Don’t give yourselves to brutes – men who despise you – enslave you – who regiment your lives – tell you what to do – what to think and what to feel!
Who drill you – diet you – treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder
Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!

You are not machines!
You are not cattle!
You are men!
You have the love of humanity in your hearts!
You don’t hate!

Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the unnatural!

Soldiers!
Don’t fight for slavery!
Fight for liberty!
In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “the Kingdom of God is within man” – not one man nor a group of men, but in all men!

In you!
You, the people have the power – the power to create machines
The power to create happiness!
You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure
Then – in the name of democracy – let us use that power – let us all unite
Let us fight for a new world – a decent world that will give men a chance to work – that will give youth a future and old age a security

By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power
But they lie!
They do not fulfill that promise
They never will!
Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people!

Now let us fight to fulfill that promise!
Let us fight to free the world – to do away with national barriers – to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance

Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness
Soldiers!
In the name of democracy, let us all unite
