I have met many online who otherwise would be isolated and alone except for their friends on the World Wide Web.
I wrote the song "Reaching Out Through Cyberspace" in response to the loneliness of some - the frustration and fear.
You can hear the song and read the lyrics on the YouTube video at this link:
I am spending more and more time visiting friends online. Today I wrote the following comment which tells much about me. I will copy it here to share. The friend I was responding to was saying that angels die in the arms of demons, that we are in the house of death. Here is my response:
Angels. Demons. All disembodied without the power or blessings of we physical corporeal beings.
For the Angels and Demons to do noticeable works on this plane of existence they must influence us. It is up to us to agree to cooperate or work in alliance with the unseen and unheard.
Do I believe in Angels and demons? I have experienced them. Think about it. I am a prolific artist, writing over a hundred songs each year, painting, gardening, cooking - all without a plan or recipe. The word "inspiration" means "in spirit". I create in partnership with spirit. The work is powerful and beautiful when born of inspiration.
I do not believe in death. I do believe in evolution - no end, only change.
Have I met angels? I have worked with them for many years. They went with me into nursing homes and convalescent facilities. I worked as a music therapist for the elderly. When the fear, anger and loneliness of those unfortunate residents began to steal my enthusiasm and cripple my performance, I would send out a prayer and there would be my blessed Angels (there were two) Dancing at the back of the room. I would immediately feel better. I was doing the work they wanted done. They were there to help me.
Have I ever met a demon? Twice. It was as horrible as one could imagine. How did I discourage and defeat the horror? With love and a bottle of bubbles. Turns out, they hate happy.
I remember when I was a teenager how I was fascinated with the dark aspects of spirituality. Looking back, I believe I was studying love. For how can we understand love unless we know it's opposite. We study love when we study what love isn't.
