We are not meant to come here and be bonded to someone forever. We are meant to follow our individual bliss and let the universe line us up with someone who is a match to that bliss…
The law of attraction is managing and bringing you together with relationships that serve your expansion the very most for the moment that you’re in.
Do you like The Mars Volta?
Their early work was a little too ‘punk’ for my taste, but when De-Loused in the Comatorium came out in ‘03, I think they really came into their own - both thematically and artistically. The whole album has a clear, progressive sound, and a new sheen of abstract lyricism that really gives the songs a big boost. They have been compared to Coheed and Cambria, but I think The Mars Volta has a far more bitter, depressing view of the world.
In ‘05, The Mars Volta released this, Frances the Mute, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is ‘Cassandra Gemini’, a song so long most people probably don’t even listen to it all the way through - but they should! Because it’s not just about the struggle of a man looking for his long lost mother, and the importance of blood ties, it’s also a personal statement about the band itself!

The Golden Pheasant (Chrysolophus pictus) is native to China, but has been also introduced into other countries. It is unmistakable with its golden crest and rump and bright red body. The deep orange “cape” can be spread in display, appearing as an alternating black and orange fan that covers all of the face except its bright yellow eye, with a pinpoint black pupil.

There is no amount of darkness that can extinguish the inner light. The important thing is not to spend our lives trying to control the environment around us. The task is to control the environment within us.
