I was asked to pass along a message to all of you....
People, I have angelbumps. Please, listen to this song...it's really wonderful, and the person who passed this message along feels wonderful, too. Hopefully he/she will join us here soon. :)

Thank you, Sam! :hug:

I just received the following message from a kind soul named "Sam" via Wishadoo (it comes in handy that others, beyond Glenn Beck fans, can reach out to us via Wishadoo when they aren't DU members as yet ;) ) :

I have a very odd request. A message, actually, to be passed along to the good folks at DU in the Astrology, Spirituality & Alternative Healing group. (Long and short of it: I'm a long-time lurker that can't donate right now to post it myself.)

My message is, quite simply, a song: Waiting For The End, by Linkin Park.
( Video & lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce5A7YUMoJA )

Normally I can't stand this band at all. Most of their songs strike me as being too angry, but in the past couple of months they released this. I find it to be a message of hope through dark times (and pleasant to listen to, though your tastes may vary).

Please share this with the others. As bad as things may seem in the days ahead, there is still hope for a better tomorrow. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, even if it is just New Jersey. We just have to hold strong until we get there.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone. May we all find what we need to get through these turbulent times.

Thank you very much.



Bless you, Sam. Bless Everyone. Hang in there....

5. "There is a light at the end of the tunnel, even if it is just New Jersey."
"Ho-BO-ken!? Ooooohh, I'm DYin' again!" -Bugs Bunny

;) ;) ;)

The current energy seems to ask us, "What do you -really- want?". Choose the positive and the knowledge that a positive outcome is being created. And stay in this :)

Welcome, Sam.

6. Oh man, thank you!

I was looking all over You Tube for this song last night - went through a lot of Linkin Park songs, too. I couldn't remember what it was called, and could not find it for the life of me. You don't know how much I appreciate this! I'm bookmarking it this time.

7. Lyrics here
Not a LP fan usually, but I like the lyrics to this song. It resonates with me right now.

This is not the end
This is not the beginning,
Just a voice like a riot
Rocking every revision
But you listen to the tone
And the violent rhythm
Though the words sound steady
Something empty's within 'em

We say Yeah!
With fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding onto something
That's invisible there,
Cuz we're living at the mercy of
The pain and the fear
Until we dead it, Forget it,
Let it all disappear.

Waiting for the end to come
Wishing I had strength to stand
This is not what I had planned
It's out of my control....

Flying at the speed of light
Thoughts we're spinning in my head
So many things were left unsaid
It's hard to let you go...

(Oh!) I know what it takes to move on,
I know how it feels to lie,
All I wanna do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got

Sitting in an empty room
Trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last,
I wish it wasn't so...

(Oh!) I know what it takes to move on,

I know how it feels to lie,
All I wanna do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got

What was left when that fire was gone?
I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
All caught up in the eye of the storm
And trying to figure out what it's like moving on
And i don't even know what kind of things I've said
My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead
So, picking up the pieces, now where to begin?
The hardest part of ending Is starting again!!

All I wanna do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what i haven't got...

This is not the end
This is not the beginning,
Just a voice like a riot
Rocking every revision
But you listen to the tone
And the violent rhythm
Though the words sound steady
Something empty's within 'em
(Holding on to what i haven't got)

We say Yeah!
With fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding onto something
That's invisible there,
Cuz we're living at the mercy of
The pain and th fear
Until we dead it, Forget it,
Let it all disappear
(Holding on to what i haven't got!)

12. Thanks OGR!
This has been a trying few weeks. I am trying to just give it up to the universe and flow with Pluto instead of fighting it. Over the past few days I have been feeling that I need to make a serious change. I think I have an answer, it has been coming for a long, long time. Why it has taken me until now to seriously heed this, I don't know. :shrug:

13. I agree.
I've never been a fan, and this song, on the surface, is dealing with the end of a relationship. A change that everyone faces at some point.

Yet it speaks to me on a deeper level than that. I'm surprised, and I'm listening some more, to hear just what it is that's moving me.

8. powerful & profound
I have liked LP in the poast because they mirrored some dark times in my soul, and here they are riding the waves of collective angst again!

is this off the latest album? wonder what else in on it... i seem to recall hearing a recent release on the radio and it was really moving too.
I believe some bands and musicians really *do* have their finger on the collective pulse, and we need to hear this so our spirits can find resonance and move forward...

(been listening to bruce coburn -ripples in the stream all day...love songs and hippy music, ahhh) ;)
