Can't see the Forest for the Trees!
Can't see the Chalk for the Blackboard!
Can't see the truth for the lies!
Can't see the Jungle for the Plants!
What's in front of us sometimes becomes a beacon...
And sometimes it is a trap;
So, We have this thing in our head - it's called a brain;
We have this thing in our chest - it's called a heart'
And We have this aura around and within us...And That's called soul.
At the entrance to any "Jungle":
Begin with mind but always check in with the heart
Then visit the soul and close your eyes....
And you will see the jungle's truth....
And the truth is that all of it is Pure and none of it is Black and White!

My attitudes, beliefs, and values, have always been inspired by (and strongly tied-to) all forms of music and lyrics... especially, but not exclusively, Jazz, and Blues. The following two musical artists and lyrics seem to really sum-up rather well, where my inspiration and spiritual beliefs reside:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"; Earth Wind and Fire
LONNIE LISTON SMITH:
EXPAND YOUR MIND TO UNDERSTAND, WE ALL MUST LIVE IN PEACE TO EARTH...
EXTEND YOUR HAND TO HELP THE PLAN OF LOVE FOR ALL MANKIND ON EARTH;
