It's All Good!

In light of all the drama I put myself through over the last few days concerning the ‘proper’ feelings to have in relating to God, it occurred to me this morning that there is an awesome song that deals with this very thing, and which encourages  us to experience our emotions as they are and not hold back.

The song is by Michelle Tumes, and is called “Feel”.  Lyrics are to the left of this beautiful video.  

Hark! The wind of passion
Swiftly weaving over your soul
Bless the surge of thunder
Rolling onto your shore
Greet the deep emotion
That sleeps beneath the ocean floor
Watch elation bound
Release its furious roar

Feel! Feel! Feel!
Feel what you long to
Feel! Feel! Feel!
Feel what you long to feel

Pound the sands of courage
Reach for clouds that cover the foam
Dance with bold expression
Leaping from silent abodes
Face the wild commotion
Free restraint and struggle no more
Let the moon raise all that
Dwells in the tides of your core


Weep, sigh, laugh, cry
Flee from the snares that wish to deny how you feel
Hope, live, love, yearn
And feel,
feel what you long to


"In whatever way we approach Krishna, He will accept us."
~ Raja Vidya, Chapter 8

"God is willing to reveal Himself according to our expectations. All rasas are there in Krishna. We can enjoy loving pleasure with Krishna in any rasa, and Krishna is ready to respond in any rasa."
~Srila Prabhupada
"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."  
~Hebrews 4:16
