I don’t have a magic wand to whisk away all of your problems. 

Heck if I did, I definitely wouldn't be in this predicament. 

But I do have the power of words, which in the words of Dumbledore, are the most inexhaustible source of magic, both capable of inflicting injury and remedying it! 

Celebrities are admirable because they are actors, dress in a particular way or are singers. 

The people we regard as strong are people who act as though everything is OK, even and perhaps especially, when the world is falling down on them. 

Singers are breaking the mould into acting nowadays, whether it’s just in music videos or like Jennifer Lopez, acting is where they made their name. And it seems easy for them. It’s a seamless transition. And why is this? 

It’s the same game. As long as they believe in the lyrics and/or can relate to them in any way they can act like it’s happened to them even if it hasn’t. That is why music is so "relatable" and the lyrics seem to speak to or about us. Not because we’ve all been in the same situation. 

So the people we regard as strong are the best actors because they carry on with a smile on their face regardless of everything. 

Acting, while it may not be the easiest thing to do, is what people do and some are better at it than others.

For instance, I never gave a second thought to the temperamental situation of someone close to me until I started getting calls from other people asking me to watch out for her and help when I could.. Of course I did these things, and now I care for her in a new way. This person was such a good actor that I had no idea something was wrong.

So it may be the person you least expect who needs help. 

Don’t be so arrogant as to only to think of yourself in every situation, because someone might need you. Even if it might seem like the biggest deal in the world, and will have repercussions on your life in the future.

Please remember it is NOT all about you. 

Others in the same situation might need to rely on your strength, and may have things draining their lives at the same time as you.

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't. It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried. He had his earliest exposure to music at Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation , Ontario where he spent summers with his mother's family. He is best known for his membership in The Band.
