Luminous Beings Are We

Wouldn't it be nice if I had a post that didn't need to begin with an apology for the gap since my previous post? Also, I finally replied to the comments on my last post, and I think my closing thought is interesting, for those curious enough to go look at it too decide for themselves.

Speaking of interesting thoughts, I was just watching videos set to music (music videos?) on YouTube when this occurred to me. Some songs have questionable, or downright objectionable, lyrics. Their spoken message is not an uplifting one. However, the same cannot be said about melody, the notes are not offensive. Maybe music communicates on some level more essential, in some way, than words, which get filtered through all the cognitive junk we keep in our skulls. I have decided to take this as evidence that we are created to be good. The logician in me calls confirmation bias, but the joy in my soul just smiles and dances on.

Two last thoughts. Dancing is good. You may have seen this on Facebook (TM), but it doesn't hurt to write it again, I forgot it up until recently and should make an effort not to repeat that mistake. While summer is awesome, boo to birdsong so early in the morning, and boo to being awake so late, goodnight!
