Having already been involved in writing and recording music in Minneapolis, I reasoned that Los Angeles was the place to try and ‘make it’ as a songwriter. It was the 1970s, and I landed right in the center of the New Age, self-awareness scene. The feeling was hopeful, i.e. we can change the world.

Side note comparison with today’s world: I smoked weed nearly every day for six years and never once worried about being arrested for it. In fact, the only ones who seemed to have any concern were the growers, who kept their locations a pretty tight secret.

This end-of-the-year time can be lovely and peaceful, and at the same time it can be a challenge to contemplate 2016. We feel not only what is ours, but what the world is going through. In this article, Jona Bryndis speaks of renewing a life-affirming attitude and strengthening our divine inner connection. One of my favorite lines in the article is this one: “As long as there is one light there it can illuminate the Darkness of the Global Shadow! Remember your Light, no matter what your suffering is!” I hope you enjoy this article, entitled “Celebrating the Sacred Rebirth of our Inner Light.” Continue reading
