Think Never That Opportunities Have Passed - The Wisdom of Edgar Cayce




Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) has been called the "sleeping prophet," the "father of holistic medicine," and the most documented psychic of the 20th century. Cayce was born on a farm in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, in 1877, and his psychic abilities began to appear as early as his childhood. As an adult, Cayce would put himself into a state of meditation, connecting with the universal consciousness and from this state, came his "readings". From holistic health and the treatment of illness to dream interpretation and reincarnation, Cayce's readings and insights offer practical help and advice to individuals from all walks of life, even today.

A Divine Philosophy - The Wisdom of Omraam Michael Aivanhov


A Divine philosophy - it reveals to humans the immensity of their wealth

"We constantly hear humans complaining that they are lacking something. They have yet to understand that the entire universe belongs to them. Let me tell you what they lack: they lack a divine philosophy.

I ask someone, ’Do you know what your possessions are? – Oh yes, nothing great, an attic! – But my friend, for you to say such a thing, it is because you remain cooped up within your four walls. Go out, take a walk around and look at your heritage. You own a vast, immense estate. Come with me and look at what belongs to you: these forests, lakes, rivers, stars, and so on. And also look at all the possibilities of your physical body, your heart, your intellect, your soul and your spirit. Can’t you see that you are extraordinarily rich? You lack nothing.’ So many people are like someone who is immersed in water and keeps asking for a drink: they are up to their neck in water, but are dying of thirst.

the more things I get done.

Uplifting Orchestral Music - Lost & Found: A Guest Post by K Jee



Published on Oct 8, 2017


Lost & Found: an orchestral, uplifting piece made with a rising progression that i hope brings a good feeling by the end of the song.
Please subscribe for more of the journey: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPvl...

Help me to create quickerer and betterer tracks by joining me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/kjeemusic

This track was made with a lot of strings and solo violin work and i enjoyed working with the images for the (somewhat corny) video that goes with it. I wish i could spend a little more time on videos so that i can create a bigger story and storytelling element, but music is subjective so the story is different in different people's minds.
I always love to harmonize my melodies when appropriate, and this track has plenty of that. I had a few things in mind when writing this including a sort of old English feel to go with the more modern backing. Also, a good friend had a pretty rough week as i sat down to work, so I wanted to do something uplifting but respectful whilst also keeping a fantasy theme in mind.
Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think - and like and subscribe! - it helps me out a lot and makes me smile :)
Thanks,
KJ
