Soul Inspiration: Have You Forgotten?

Have you forgotten who you are, that you were born a child of God, a divine hand, a piece of a giant collective heart that lives to love and loves to live?

Have you forgotten that you matter, that you are infused with a divine power and, because of this gift, you are powerful beyond measure?

Have you forgotten that when loneliness, struggle, fear and limitation are present, they are nothing but states of consciousness that are just an illusion, an intermittent interference, a smokescreen hiding the true essence of who you are?

Have you forgotten that you deserve better, that there is no one in the world quite like you and that without you, our collective heart cannot be whole or healed?
Have you forgotten that peace begins when you have claimed your piece and your place in our collective family? This is all that you are here to do.

Have you forgotten that we were all created equal and that it is our birthright to be treated that way?

Just for today, live like it is your piece that the world needs and is waiting for. Watch, as you step into this truth, how the universe opens up its arms to you. Watch as the world shifts right in front of your eyes and how your essence turns back into a part of the divine herself.

Do it for no other reason than to bring a little more peace and EQUALITY to the world today. Do it so that you remember the great gift of life - which is YOU. And in doing so, you will remind others - through reflection - the great gift that they are to this world.

Remember YOU are the love WE are waiting for.

With love and deep gratitude for allowing me to share my piece with you,

Debbie Ford

Amp Fiddler News - God Bless

Dorian Anthony Fiddler, the beloved son of Joseph “Amp” Fiddler and Stacey Willoughby passed away unexpectedly on the morning of Friday 1st May 2009. He had only that week been taken into hospital and diagnosed with diabetes, which led to his sudden and subsequent death.

In recent years he had been a pupil at Detroit’s High School for the Fine and Performing Arts, playing in the school band as well as collaborating with other students. Latterly, he worked beats in the school studios for hours at a time after school, learning all aspects of music production; and when the opportunity presented itself, he joined his father on stage, most recently, during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January of this year.

A memorial benefit gig organized by Amp and Dorian's friends was held Thursday May 7in Detroit.

The “One Love Jam” was a fundraiser to assist Amp and his family with the Funeral Services. We are calling on Detroit and world music communities to support one of it's wounded bretheren as he mourns the loss of his only child.
