“God Respects Me When I Work, He Loves Me When I Sing.”

Go(o)d Mornings with CurlyNikki

Love is the only song I know.  It's stuck in my head.  On loop AS my Heart.  This Divine tune harmonizes my life, carries me, lifts me, sings me, frees me.  It 's on repeat so "I" won't have to.  This life is successful.

"You are the Source of my strength.
You are the Strength of my life.
I lift my hands in total praise to you." - Total Praise, Richard Smallwood

"God respects me when I work, He loves me when I sing.” - Tagore

"There's an ancient Peace you carry in your Heart and have not lost." - ACIM

"Someone may be wondering
When we sing our song
At times we may be crying
And nothing's even wrong
… I sing because I'm happy (I sing)
I sing because I'm free (His eye's on)
His eye's on the sparrow (that's the reason)
That's the reason why I sing
… Glory, hallelujah (You're the reason)
You're the reason why I sing (come on, say glory)
Glory, hallelujah (thank you Jesus)
You're the reason why I sing." - Kirk Franklin, Why We Sing

Today's Practice:
Choose a song that points you to the present, always 'on', inner worshipping.  Allow it to get stuck in your head, tuning you to Joy,  replacing your thoughts, replacing the object of worship, replacing even you... leaving only This.  Live today as This atmosphere of worship.

This is the song stuck in my head, on loop in my heart-- the Mahamantra ( at the  13:45 min mark is the rhythm I sing and chant in constantly).  There's places in India where this mantra has gone on non-stop for centuries.  People show up and sing in shifts!

Wherever you're singing, whatever you're singing, know that I Am (t)here, singing, too.  Worshipping, too.  Praising, too.  Loving, too.  Knowing that the lover, the loving, and the one loved are One.  We are that One Love.

I Love you,
