I was nominated by @justinparke to take part in the #SpreadTheVibes challenge. Gotta admire him and his family's perseverance in spreading good vibes through their top notch content and deeds on the Blockchain, as well as their resilience to overcome their situation with love, togetherness and critical thinking.
But what exactly is the #SpreadTheVibe challenge?
It is quite simple, though it may seem a little "challenging". All you have to do is react to the music that was shared with you. Then find a song you'd like to share, tell a story about the song or how it relates to you and nominate at least two others to #SpreadTheVibes.
Here are the full guidelines of the challenge:
Your reaction to the music that was shared with you
Your music selection and related story
Your invites of other HIVE members
Link to the post you react to
Post Tags must include #spreadthevibes #music
Post Community - any community you like.
My Reaction to: Love Is Among by the "Wordsmith" Vaughn Benjamin
First off big respect to the late Vaughn Benjamin. I must admit, his is a catalogue that I haven't dived too deep into, but that is about to change as his music is the type of higher vibration I aspire to be on. Respect to @justinparke for sharing this song with me in this post and all the Midnite songs he has shared on the block.
This song, like most of Vaughn's, has an eternal message that any race or being can live by. I especially like the line where he says:
Cultivate love and loyalty.
Cultivate careful temperate speech.
Words make body temperature change degree
Inside a' human being.
These are simple but profound words that believe it or not are major keys to becoming successful in the truest sense. Not just in the PHD and money spree type of way but the type of success that includes true friendships, humility and an overall God like love for the planet and its beings.
One could even use these words as an affirmation to help them to navigate through life in a very wise manner that would help attract the right people, vibes and opportunities.
Just found Vaughn's as well as Midnite's Spotify and followed them. Will be listening to them my commutes.
My #SpreadTheVibes Tune : "Treat The youths Right" By Jimmy Cliff.
Today I went into work after a few days of teleworking and moderating meetings. I teach English to junior high school students alongside a Japanese teacher ( I am actually losing my English living here). Today we had a long meeting and a major part of that meeting was making all the teachers aware of the different "problems" various students had.
Issues ranged from ADHD, to domestic violence and even suicidal thoughts and a dozen other issues you can imagine on your own. The point I want to make is children are really sensitive to physical and verbal abuse....neglect as well. These factors can really make or brake the personality of a child and their direction in life.
Seeing these students, being aware of what they are going through and realising why they do what they do makes me realise just how delicate the mind of a child is....adults too.
This song by Jimmy Cliff reminds me to Treat the Youths right, say the right words, make the time, play with them, listen to them, encourage them and also to remember that I am not living for myself but for the youths, not just my children but for all the children.
Some lines that also got me thinking were these below.
What was hidden from the first resurrection
Now revealed in the second resurrection
What was hidden from the first generation
Now revealed to the fifth generation
I interpreted it as children growing up faster in these times and being exposed to things at an earlier age. It could also mean that secrets of our existence will be revealed to them as well. So the youths will have a lot on their minds more than we ever had as children and teens. So it is even more important than ever before to Treat The Youths Right
I'd like to nominate @fruityfruitz and @bearmol to this challenge. They can janken to see who does it or they can both do it. 😆. I have never seen these two do a music post so it is a good challenge to flex the creative muscles. To read more about the #SpreadTheVibes Challenge by @edje & @mipiano, see this post here. But if you are too lazy to go look, here are the main things from the post..
