Care about Us- Review by Georges Drouet

Seven years ago...
I was at the front beach, in Cannes, during the MIDEM, the internationally known music fair.
A man, young and tall, was talking with Annabelle, the anchor of the show I was organizing.
It was the end of the day and, in February, even on the Southern shores of France, the wind was biting and David wearing a single T-shirt was shaking.
I gave him my jacket and he borrowed me his mp3 player.

"These are my songs!" he told me, so I put the headphones...

Since then, seven years ago, I have been listening David's compositions.

His songs, his voice, his arrangements have something that can't be explained by words, because words are signs while David's songs are vibrations, feelings, colors.

David's songs are a mix of emotions wisely adjusted and masterly fine tuned to reach precises note and create surprises.

When I hear his melodies, I know they are exactly what I have been waiting for, hoping for, desiring.

I know your songs David and I still get surprised…

Born Again Lyrics

Born Again
by Undakova


I will live my life with love
No I won't be born again
Enlighten my mind with love
No I won't be born again
I believe we're made of the same stuff
That the stars and the galaxies are made of
Nothing dies but returns where it came from
See the light rise? what you afraid of
Levitate like a dove when I meditate
Yep I am generate love when I am feeling great
Choose my destination then I set a straight
course. Then I move with the force never hesitate
Take me straight to the source
I am tired of men trying to be the boss
The moment you win that's when you really loss
Repeat life over again that's the cost
Following your shadow
you'll hardly floss
Your breath is the saddle
your body is the horse
Your mind is the scenery
that comes from your thoughts
So focus your dreams
and you'll never be lost
Keep it positive
I will live my life with love
No I won't be born again nooo
Enlighten my mind with love
No I won't be born again
Everybody we gone rock to the b…

September 2012 Vipassana 10 Day Course

So what made me want to do a meditation technique that has been lost to humanity and rediscovered by Gotama the Buddha more than 2500 years ago?  The benefits of  learning something that I could take into my life that will make what I am already doing better. I already had a meditation practice before learning Vipassana. Now I feel I have gained the ability to sit much longer than the  30 minutes a day I was used to, I am not totally dependent on my iphone or a sound track and I can meditate anywhere, which to me is more practical. To me it seems that now that I went to a Vipassana course I can now say I am learning how to meditate FOR REAL lol. And now that I know more about Vipassana and have gained the experience in practicing it I sit twice a day to maintain my practice and :

develop a discipline of working toward increased present awareness and humility, reducing my ego.
deal with the challenges in my daily life activities and let them pass me by without getting so attached to them…

Care About Us Lyrics by Undakova

Care about us
By Undakova

Mass destruction
Then invasions
Bombs erupting
I don’t knowwww who to blame or
What needs changing
All I am thinking is
They don’t really care about us
In gulfed in
Exploitation
Corruption
I don’t knowww who to blame or
What needs changing
All I am saying is
They don’t really care about us

17th century 21st century
really doesn't matter if you are not writing the history
In the end of it all when they mention we
Will they mention you? Will they mention me?
Will they mention us? Will the picture be. . .
A shot of you next to the words “victory”?
I don’t think so, So you should listen see
Because the only benefit that you’ll get to see . . .
Is the 9 digit social security
The captain of the ship may still let the prisoners eat
And just because you travel doesn’t mean you're really free
Executives from Enron will still get to cheat
The shareholders and workers from new companies
And new corporation factories they are calling green
Alternating new natural sources of energ…

New Years Goals for 2012. The 10 Commandments and the 8 Way Method.

In the year of 2009 I created 10 commandments that really helped me along the way. The point of creating goals or affirmations in the New Year for me is to be a part of the designing process of your life. Let it go. And then look back and see how well you managed to keep to your word. You can check back at what you wrote every month or every now and then to keep you on track. These are the commandments I wrote for 2 years ago in 200 but I would like to continue to make them a part of my growth in 2012. Maybe they will have some relevance to you and your goals.

10 Commandments

Thou shall be compassionate and patient with thyself

Thou shall eat healthy and exercise frequently

Thou shall be impeccable with your word

Thou shall build on a Financial Plan daily

Thou shall not take anything personally

Thou shall meditate 5 hours a week (wow this was in 2009. Now in 2012 I will meditate for 14 hours a week)

Thou shall not make assumptions

Thou shall be a problem solver

Thou shall always do your best

Tho…
