A Blessing of Angels, To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings

May the Angels in their beauty bless you.
May they turn toward you streams of blessing.

May the Angel of Awakening stir your heart
to come alive to the eternal within you,
to all the invitations that quietly surround you.

May the Angel of Healing turn your wounds into sources of refreshment.

May the Angel of the Imagination enable you to stand on the true thresholds,
at ease with your ambivalence and drawn in new directions
through the glow of your contradictions.

May the Angel of Compassion open your eyes to the unseen suffering around you.

May the Angel of Wildness disturb the places
 where your life is domesticated and safe,
take you to the territories of true otherness
where all that is awkward in you can fall into its own rhythm.

May the Angel of Eros introduce you to the beauty of your senses
to celebrate your inheritance as a temple of the holy spirit.

May the Angel of Justice disturb you to take the side of the poor and the wronged.

May the Angel of Encouragement confirm you in worth and self-respect,
that you may live with the dignity that presides in your soul.

May the Angel of Death arrive only when your life is complete
and you have brought every given gift to the threshold where its infinity can shine.

May all the Angels be your sheltering and joyful guardians.

St. Michael the Archangel

Archangel Barachiel, the Angel of Blessings

My Dearest Friend Mason sent this to me in an Email. Thank you. As I  reside on Michael Lane.  When I was in search for a new residence, God lead me here. I believe it was for a reason.  Michael the Archangel stands guard. I also have faith in the power of Angels.  Also, My Dearest Friend Doris has sent me her Angel to help my family in this time of need and strength. God has blessed me in so many ways. Thank you Dear Lord.  Countless blessings continue everyday to enter my family.  All I had to do is ask God, and pray.

Comfortably Numb, Roger Waters & David Gilmour, Live, London, 2011.

I wished I would have seen the original production of “The Wall” at the Spectrum in Philadelphia.   I was a  4-5th year full-time student at Temple University during the formative/passionate years of Classic Rock and Roll.  My sister-mother from Alpha Gamma Delta worked at 93.3 WMMRJoe Bonadonna,  was on air radio personality during the afternoon I believe Mark Goodman followed him. Joe gave me a not to be sold LP of “The Wall.”  Lots of brilliant rock and roll was exposed in Philly.  WMMR was located on the 2nd or 3rd floor overlooking Rittenhouse Square at 19th and Walnut Streets.  

I hung out there during live broadcasts with friends from Temple..  Now, that I remember, that was totally awesome. But, back in the day no one was superficial. It was always a party. Music was the magic.

But through the power of the Internet, I can relive and research my days of future past.

BTW, can you tell I become inspired  upon brilliant guitar musicians.

Comfortably Numb, Composition, Wiki

According to Rolling Stone, the lyrics came from Roger Waters’ experience when he was injected with tranquilizers for stomach cramps by a doctor prior to playing a Pink Floyd show in Philadelphia on the band’s 1977 In the Flesh tour. “That was the longest two hours of my life,” Waters said, “trying to do a show when you can hardly lift your arm.” The experience gave him the idea which eventually became the lyrics to this song.
