Keep Holding On - Behind The Clouds, The Sun Still Shines!

Keep Holding On - Behind The Clouds, The Sun Still Shines!

It’s hard to be patient. But as one of my favourite quotes goes ‘’Things are happening behind the scenes, if not visible on the surface.” 

So when you feel the rollercoaster of life has broken down for you, and you’re watching everyone else fly past you (or that’s what it feels like) know that it is just taking a breather to make things better in your life. 

When there’s nothing going on in your life, just know that something is making its way to you. 

When everything is going on in your life, you forget about the little things that troubled you.

For instance, I entered a competition and the end date was the day I moved into university for my first year. Now I forgot all about the competition because I was so focused on moving all my stuff in and making new friends (which I did, very quickly and easily) and that night I got a phone call saying I’d actually won the competition! 

I know it’s hardly the same thing but it just goes to show when you focus on something else, something you’ve been waiting for, consciously or unconsciously will happen. 

So go on, try focusing on the things that make you happy in life and see what happens. 

Life doesn’t stand still, though it may seem like it does sometimes, the light may be distant but it will be shining. Like the sun never stops shining, it may go down in your world but it’s rising somewhere else on the earth. And it shines behind the moon at night, when you can see it on clear nights, and even on cloudy stormy nights it’s still there regardless.

So keep holding on, because even though you can’t see them every night, the stars, including the sun, still shine.

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. Here is a translation of the words
