You say you’re down on your luck

Hey baby It’s a long, long way up

Hold back now, hold back your fears

You say you’re really down and out

And you feel like there’s no way out now

Let go now let go of your tears some moreHow many times have you asked yourself?

Is this the hand of fate now that I’ve been dealt?

You’re so disillusioned this can’t be real

And you can’t stand now the way you feel

I don’t care about what they say

I won’t live or die that way

Tired of figuring out things on my own

Angel’s wings won’t you carry me home?

And when you’re down on your luck

Hey baby It’s a long, long way up

Hold back now, hold back your fears

And when you’re really down and out

And you feel like there’s no way out now

Let go now, let go of your tears some more

I triumphed in the face of adversity

And I became the man I never thought I’d be

And now my biggest challenge, a thing called love

I guess I’m not as tough as I thought I was

I don’t care about what they say

I wanna marry you some day

Gonna wake up, it’s a brand new day

Angel’s wings gonna carry you away

Angel’s wings gonna carry me away

Angel’s wings gonna carry us away

Gonna carry us away

Gonna carry us away

Gonna carry us away

After a week of hitting the pavement, hustling back in NYC I’ve found myself sick. Cough. Cough. Cough. Sniffle.

The Golden Present: Nothing Is Impossible To Accomplish

Nothing Is Impossible To Accomplish

The entire life is based on imagination. In a way, you are also imagining in meditation. In meditation, you think of God. Have you ever seen God? No. So you are imagining, “That must be God. God should be like this. God should be like that.” That is your God. Another person would imagine the same God in his or her own way. That is why even God’s form varies according to the person who imagines God. That is the proof that everything comes from within.

In meditation you are imagining something that you want to ultimately become or develop. “God is almighty, God is all-powerful, God is all-forgiving, God is all love.” You constantly think of certain things and the mind assumes that image, assumes that quality. But one thing is important: you should think strongly. You should be strong enough in your suggestions. That is what you are trying to develop in your meditation. You are strengthening your thoughts by constantly thinking of the same thing. To make yourself strong in your thoughts, you have to keep on dinning that into your mind. “This is what I want to become. This is what I want to become.” That means you imagine that you are going to be like that – that you are that. Then certainly you will become that. Once you achieve that kind of thought power, nothing is impossible to accomplish.
