It’s been a little while since my last post. Life has been quite full and I am restructuring in some ways. First of all, I was finally offered a full-time job here in San Francisco after searching for 7 months, and I’m very excited about it! The last couple of weeks have been dedicated to interviews and working on being patient and not getting my hopes up. It all has worked out. I’m very grateful to see what experiences, people, and lessons this new opportunity will bring to my life. Another chapter about to begin!
I also traveled back to the east coast to visit my family for a few days. I haven’t discussed it very much on my blog, but I have some very difficult family dynamics. Despite those, I am so happy to have family in this world to share time and make memories with. As I’ve gotten older this has come to mean very much to me. It’s one of those things that I am glad to have come to appreciate before it became too late. I enjoy being able to express my love for my family these days, in any way I can.
So Let Love Rule… what’s that all about? Well, I went to see U2 the other night- what an amazing show. U2 is my favorite band of all time. It was awesome that I got to see them here in San Francisco. The opening performer was Lenny Kravitz. I never saw Lenny perform live, and I was only familiar with 2-3 of his popular hits before this show. Let Love Rule was a song he performed that I hadn’t heard before. It was spectacular. What I enjoyed most about it was how he got the crowd involved in the singing of this song. He had the standing audience sing “Let Love Rule”… and the seated audience follow up with “You’ve got to let love rule!” over and over and over again. The impact was amazing. The crowd literally transformed. And it’s no wonder why. To say these words collectively with thousands of strangers in unison is penetrating indeed, and quite powerfully so. It was a beautiful time participating in the sharing and spreading of this electrifying message of Love and of letting It be our guide.
Throughout the concert, between Lenny’s outstanding opening performance and the life changing power of what U2 accomplishes on stage, I don’t think I could count the number of times the word Love was used in the collection of songs performed that night. It had a prominent presence throughtout the evening each time it was sung or said. I think Lenny & U2 were up to something, something really good. I got it. I hope everyone else did too.
Yeah so…. Let Love Rule! I think it’s a good thing to do. To me this means to simply choose Love, practice acceptance, give, and be kind.
What does letting love rule mean to you?
My fave U2 song ever- One. Enjoy.
