innocence

Carlos Santana’s thoughts on self-fulfillment

As for his (Carlos Santana) thoughts on self-fulfillment:

“Three things: Your spirit, your soul, and your heart. If you find those and you really find them, you’re going to realize that innocence. Those things don’t leave you, and you don’t misplace or lose them. Those are the ingredients for you to have a glorious existence.”

One of his favorite terms is “naked awareness” — the ability to see yourself fully and make changes away from the negative.

My Light, by Sully Erna (of Godsmack)

Here’s another beautiful “unplugged” song from Sully Erna, this one is named My Light. A few lyrics:

You always bring me light
And you help me find my way
A gentle kiss goodnight
Is the innocence I crave

Here I am
Humbled and amazed
This beautiful little miracle of life
Was gifted to me

And here I am
I never thought I’d say
If ever I could live my life again
I’d live it your way

You’ve always brought me life
And you’ve helped me find my way
A simple kiss goodnight
Is the innocence I crave

Under the light you shine on me
I promise I will be there for you baby
I’d never wanna leave you anyway
You’ve become my light

I cross my heart that’s in your hands
With hope that you will always be my best friend
I promise I will be there ’til the end
You’ve become my light

Under the light you shine on me
I promise I will be there for you baby
I’d never wanna leave you anyway
You’ve become my light

I cross my heart that’s in your hands
With hope that you will always be my best friend
I promise I will be there ’til the end
You’ve become my light

You’ve become my light
You’ve become my light ...
