Let The Sunshine In

This is the hard-hitting piece from the Hair Musical. Has been sung by thousands of people who protested the Vietnam War in front of the White House.

We starve, look at one another, short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes
Somewhere, inside something there is a rush of
Greatness, who knows what stands in front of
Our lives, I fashion my future on films in space

Silence tells me secretly

Manchester, England, England
Manchester, England, England
Across the Atlantic Sea

And I’m a genius, genius
I believe in God
And I believe that God believes in Claude
That’s me, that’s me, that’s me

We starve, look at one another, short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes
Singing our space songs on a spider web sitar
Life is around you and in you
Answer for Timothy Leary, dearie

Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in

Waiting For The Sun

I really love it when I have an excuse to post some music by The Doors! And since we are waiting for our “Here Comes The Sun” project to begin, I thought this would be appropriate.

Here are the lyrics:

At first flash of Eden
We race down to the sea
Standing there on freedom’s shore

Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun

Can you feel it
Now that Spring has come
That it’s time to live in the scattered sun

Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun.
Waiting for the sun
Waiting,, waiting,, waiting,, waiting, waiting,, waiting,, waiting,, waiting

Waiting for you to come along
Waiting for you to hear my song
Waiting for you to come along
Waiting for you to tell me what went wrong

This is the strangest life I’ve ever known

Can you feel it
Now that Spring has come
That it’s time to live in the scattered sun.

Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun

Another Ganesh Mantra

Ganesha Mantra Text

Gajananam Bhootganadhisevitam
Kapitthya Jamboo Phalcharu Bhakshanam
Namami Vighneshwar Padpankajam


Elephant-faced, worshiped by the existing beings, of all living beings,
tasting the elephant apple (kaith) and jambolana (jamun),
the son of Uma, destroyer of grief,
I bow to the lotus feet of Ganesha who is Lord of all.

Here’s a cool video…


I found this cool video and accompanying mantra at the Sanatan Society, a website that is chock full of information about Mantras, Ayurveda, Yoga, Tantra, Hindu Gods and a lot more.

What’s In A Name?

Names are important when it comes to invoking a God, and I’ve seen a lot of variation from website to website on Ganesh. Sometimes it’s Ganesh, other times it’s Ganesha, and then sometimes it’s Ganapati. So I decided to look it up, and this is what I found:

The word Ganesha comes from the Sanskrit words “Gana eeshaha, Ganeshaha”. Ganesha is the right term and Ganesh is a short form used to name a first born boy in the family of Hindus. Hence we can use both.

There is no difference between Ganesh and Ganapati.

  • Gan + Ish = Ganesh : means Lord of People.
  • Gan + Pati = Ganapati : means Lord of People.

Ganesh, by the way, has 1008 names. Here is a super cool recitation with music, it’s by Suresh Wadkar from the Album, Shree Ganesh Sahasranamavali.

Ganesh Maha Mantra

This video is a humble offering at the feet of our Lord Ganesh.

Ganesh Maha Mantra:
Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha

Ganesha mantras are siddhi mantras. Each mantra contains certain specific powers of Lord Ganesha. When chanted with the proper pranayama (rhythmic breathing) and sincere devotion, they will yield good results. In general, Ganesha mantras will ward off all evil and bless the devotee with abundance, prudence and success. Evil spirits dare not enter the home or the mind of the devotee where Ganesha mantras are recited.

4 Step Success Formula Morning Routine

This is a video describing the best 4 step success formula morning routine for law of attraction that will raise your vibration. In the video is a discussion about how the law of attraction can positive impact your morning and I give you my exact morning routine and morning ritual. Most people block the law of attraction because they do not get their morning started right.

There are certain tricks to using law of attraction to easily manifest what you want, but in order to do so you have to create a successful morning routine or ritual. Most people struggle with law of attraction because they’ve never properly understood how to get the day started right. And most people struggle because they do not understand how to use it. So I share my biggest takeaways so you can apply it to your life easily.

In this video you’ll learn how to use the law of attraction, understand it better, and apply it to your life. The first step is to understand that you’re always using Law of Attraction. Most of us spend our whole lives doing it unconsciously. We use unconscious negative affirmations as a technique that holds us back from what we want in life. You have to become conscious of your affirmations and begin to use positive thinking techniques to feel what you want before you have it.

It’s a constant affirmation meditation to visualize success and feel it in your nervous system. This is how you use positive affirmations to reprogram your subconscious mind, how to visualize images, how to visualize what you want, and how to create what you want as a reality.

Morning Routines aka YouTube

All these morning routines I have been finding and posting sound a little intimidating. So, I thought it might be fun and illuminating to take a peek into morning routines on YouTube. I don’t know why, but I did expect to find something a little more reflective of real life.

That being said, here’s what I found:

Starting off bright and early with a fall morning routine because what else makes more sense? Especially if you are beautiful and have all the time in the world to plan and execute a video that makes you look so good!

But Wait! There’s More!

I really thought I’d be rolling my eyes at these girls, but I actually think they are kind of cute. Yes the whole thing is staged, and no I don’t think it actually reflects their true reality… but… still… it was cheerful and fun.

The sister vs brother kids are not as horribly annoying as I thought they would be. I think that what bothered me most was that the house was so amazingly spotless and sparkling clean.

Continuing with my vicarious views into the morning routines of YouTubers, here’s a more realistic video… again the house is annoyingly clean… and I am reminded of all those years ago when I had toddlers, and how wonderful and at the same time how tiresome it all was.

Most of the morning routines that YouTube wanted to show me were either kids, moms, or make up. I finally found something just a little bit different… it does however, have that annoying blurb about fit tea, for which he was probably paid.

I did like this one – for the first 30 seconds or so. After that, the blatant advertising and product endorsements begin. “Good job Joe, you don’t stink now.” LOL!

So there you have it… I couldn’t find a single YouTube video that I thought actually reflected anything close to my own reality. It makes me think that there must be a need for real life video on a good routine for when you’re old, crusty, crazy, and well… lazy, resentful, and rebellious!

Here’s a great cover photo for the video I was envisioning:

If you want to change the world…

Our Rise and Shine project begins bright and early tomorrow morning, and I thought this would be a good time to review the amazing speech that triggered this project.

United States Navy admiral William H. McRaven delivers a powerful speech about the importance of doing the little things and embracing fear in life. Here’s the video:

Here’s A Transcript Of The Speech:

If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed. If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that the little things in life matter. If you can’t do the little things right, you’ll never be able to do the big things right. If, by chance, you have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that is made. That you made. And a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better.

To pass SEAL training, there are a series of long swims that must be completed. One is the night swim. Before the swim, the instructors joyfully brief the students on all the species of sharks that inhabit the waters off San Clemente. They assure you, however, that no student has ever been eaten by a shark. At least not that they can remember. But you are also taught that if a shark begins to circle your position, stand your ground. Do not swim away. Do not act afraid. If the shark, hungry for a midnight snack, darts towards you, then summon up all your strength and punch him in the snout, and he will turn and swim away. There are a lot of sharks in the world. If you hope to complete the swim, you will have to deal with them. If you want to change the world, don’t back down from the sharks.

Over a few weeks of difficult training, my SEAL class, which started with 150 men, was down to just 42. There are now six boat crews of seven men each. I was in the boat with a tall guys, but the best boat crew we had was made up of little guys, the munchkin crew, we called them. No one was over five foot five. The munchkin boat crew had one American Indian, one African American, one Polish American, one Greek American, one Italian American, and two tough kids from the Midwest. The out-paddled, out-ran, and out-swam all the other boat crews. The big men in the other boat crews would always make good natured fun of the tiny, little flippers the munchkins put on their tiny, little feet prior to every swim. But somehow these little guys, from every corner of the nation in the world, always had the last laugh, swimming faster than everyone and reaching the shore long before the rest of us.

SEAL training was a great equalizer. Nothing mattered but your will to succeed. Not your color, not your ethnic background, not your education, not your social status. If you want to change the world, measure a person by the size of their heart, not by the size of their flippers.

The ninth week of training is referred to as Hell Week. Is it six days of no sleep, constant mental and physical harassment, and one special day at the mud flats. The mud flats are an area between San Diego and Tijuana, where the water runs off and creates the Tijuana sloughs, a swampy patch of terrain where the mud will engulf you.

It is on Wednesday of Hell Week that you paddle down to the mud flats and spend the next 15 hours trying to survive the freezing cold, the howling wind, and the incessant pressure to quit from the instructors. As the sun began to set that Wednesday evening, my training class, having committed some egregious infraction of the rules, was ordered into the mud. The mud consumed each man until there was nothing visible but our heads. The instructors told us we could leave the mud if only five men would quit. Only five men. Just five men and we could get out of the oppressive cold. Looking around the mud flat, it was apparent that some students were about to give up. There were still over eight hours until the sun came up. Eight more hours of bone-chilling cold. The chattering teeth and shivering moans of the trainees were so loud, it was hard to hear anything.

Then one voice began to echo through the night. One voice raised in song. The song was terribly out of tune, but sung with great enthusiasm. One voice became two. And two became three. And before long, everyone in the class was singing. The instructors threatened us with more time in the mud if we kept up the singing, but the singing persisted. And somehow, the mud seemed a little warmer, and the wind a little tamer, and the dawn not so far away.

If I have learned anything in my time traveling the world, it is the power of hope. The power of one person. A Washington, a Lincoln, King, Mandela, and even the young girl from Pakistan, Malala. One person can change the world by giving people hope. So if you want to change the world, start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone. Know that life is not fair, that you will fail often. But if you take some risks, step up when the times are the toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden, and never, ever give up, if you do these things, the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today. And what started here will, indeed, have changed the world for the better.
