Just remember to fall in love. There’s nothing else. ~ MusicMonday

July 19, 2010

I’ve had this song stuck in my head for a few days now. I really dig it. The video for the original song is cool too (visually & sonically), but for this #MusicMonday I’d like to share the following remix.

The Chemical Brothers – Swoon
(Don Diablo Remix)

“Just remember to fall in love. There’s nothing else.”

I like that. I interpret it as more than just romantic love, but that surely can be part of it too. To interject a bit of my own little philosophy in here~  Fall in love every chance you get. Fall in love with everything. Love life.  Love reality. Love that beautiful flower you pass by tomorrow. Love that stranger who smiled at you and love the one who cut you off.  Love the cool breeze on a summer evening. Love the warm sun on your skin. Love the funny email you got last week. Love the person who sent it as well as that spammer who keeps filling your inbox with junk. Love the sublime nature of being alive. Love yourself.  Love both your ups and downs, happy times and sad times -each grants us a chance to feel and grow. There’s a quote that speaks truth- “Those who are the hardest to love,  often need it the most”. Love difficult times and difficult people for the lessons they teach you that could be learned no other way, & for the way they expand your opportunities to show love. Have patience with things and forgive as you would people you love. Love your past. Love your present.  See the world through the prism of love. Live your day based in love.  Do the things your spirit cries out to do- the things that bring the purest happiness and fulfillment, for these are acts of love. Embrace the universe and the warmth and peace it has been waiting to share. Just remember- remember to allow yourself the simple joys, simple pleasures. Remember your inner child, let yourself enjoy things and love as freely as they did. Remember the beauty and amazingness of everything around you.
All in all, there’s nothing else that’s as worthy of your time and energy than embodying and reveling in such love. Not much else that can as easily bring you as deep of contentment and bliss.

****

“Love has no desire but to fulfill itself.  To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.  To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.”  ~Kahlil Gibran

    Just found this page randomly from a google search of that lyric. That song is amazing. I completely agree with your take on it. Love your work. The world is a better place because of people like you 🙂

    Much peace and love from the Maldives.
