Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Music Monday! Morning Has Broken

This song brings back memories of Easter and church for me.
It was played many Easters at our church when I was growing up.
My father was the organ player, and I loved to hear him play this in practice at home, and then again at church.



When I heard it playing Cat Sevens version on the radio, I loved it. A church song playing on the radio - how cool. I was then, and still am, a Cat Stevens fan. I was a kid then, I thought AM radio was cool. I still do actually - it WAS cool back in the 70's.

Whatever it takes to bring the idea to the masses that we should give thanks.
It was said by the editor of the hymnal it was first published in (In 1931) that:

 "there was need for a hymn to give thanks for each day."

There IS a need to give thanks each day.
A habit I have been trying to keep up with.

So give thanks, even though it is Monday.
Give thanks that we have.....
beautiful music,
sunshine,
rainfall,
wind,
chocolate (I am sure you all have some extra around the house today...),
and mainly that we have another day to live, and love.

Morning has broken, like the first morning.
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird.
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning,
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word.

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlight from heaven.
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetnes of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning.
Born of the one light Eden saw play.
Praise with elation, praise every morning;
God's recreation of the new day.

Morning has broken, like the first morning.
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird.
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning,
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word.
