Songs with healing and/or connection significance.
A powerful song sung by Michael Jackson about the importance of healing the “man in the mirror,” which is, on the LP, “the center”, or the “Self in the middle.” As Michael sang, if you want to heal the world, start with your Self and move on out from there.
A powerful song about the consequences of Substance Addiction, by the Canadian Rock Stars Nickleback.
A song about Toxic Socialization, by the late, great John Lennon. As relevant now as it was 50 years ago. Paul, et. al., keep singing those “silly love songs.”
This song is most certainly talking about the collective awakening that was occurring in the 60s and 70s, before The Family, with the assistance of Hollywood and the actor Ronald Reagan, shut it down. As anybody reading these lyrics will attest, we’re living through another “time changing” moment.
This song is a anthem to (live high), and empowerment (live mighty) and (live righteously). It is a celebration of the depth of creation. It is statement of belief in the divinity...
Any intermediate or advanced or LP student will recognize this song for what it is, a strong condemnation of the soul sucking, vampire System. On the nature of the System, Marley is quite clear.
This song is a lament to the sleeping, unawakened people of the world, confined to Normal Consciousness, unable to wake up, “perverted” and “diverted” from achieving Connection with higher self/Consciousness.
Mental health and happiness are elusive things for most people. The problem is our modern capitalist societies have convinced us that to be happy we have to buy products. In the process the true core of happiness, which is aligned, positive, self-identity, is lost. What’s worse, our search for happiness is turned into a desperate drive to have more, and more, and more. The GRAND ILLUSION is that all this purchase is what makes us who we are. However it is not true. True happiness only comes from finding out who you really are, and living in alignment with that self.
Most people are unaware of this, but towards the end of his life, Michael Jackson became increasingly political, calling out the PTB and inciting peaceful global revolution. In this song, Michael gathers “the people” (the poor, the incarcerated, the disenfranchised) under his wing and takes direct aim at The System.
This is a song from the second album of my favorite band in the whole world. In my view, this is a wholly positive message about the shifting of consciousness and the transformation of physical creation.
