"PeaceLove LightBody" artwork painting by @nathanjtaylor Holy Spirit meditation indigenous earthling earth...To be humane is to be human holistic health peace love good vibes. 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (7 octillion) atoms vibrating within a 100 trillion cells being renewed continuously at 25 million new cells being produced each second of time. We were designed to live forever and to never die. Invented to love and to be loved. Peace in mind + Love in Heart. "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7) If the human brain were a computer, it could perform 38 thousand-trillion operations per second. "...behold, the kingdom of God is within you." -jesus (Luke 17:21) The seat of the soul is the pineal gland, known as the "third eye" the point where the spiritual and physical meet, the antennae. The pineal is a small endocrine gland that produce melatonin, and is shaped like a tiny pine cone, hence its name. It is located near the center of brain between the two hemispheres. "The lamp of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light." (Matthew 6:22) "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." (Romans 12:2) One must be in continuous prayer and meditation to keep their minds renewed and healthy due to the negativity and pollution of the world. There is an emotional - mental link to disease, all organs are emotional bodies. Anger, depression, grief, and chronic stress for example leads to a weakened immune system, cancer and many other ailments. Peace, love and forgiveness is a foundation for good health. Operate in faith not fear.
Despite iTunes and P2P sharing, records remain an amalgam of sensory perceptions for me. The crackling cellophane between my fingers and the expectations an intriguing cover implies. Perhaps that’s why I snatch up every CTI release I come across. Visual artist Nathan Jälani Taylor’s cover art for Play With The Changes instantly drew me in with its primal simplicity. The Rorschach ink blots boiling into the heavens like an apocalyptic tar pit. It is a perfect visual representation of 4Hero’s sound. Their progressive interpretations extrapolated from classic sounds the way archeologists piece together fossilized remains from the pit’s depths in order to push science forward. Present here are traces of 4Hero’s jungle beginnings and requisite diva vocal cuts, but with heavier soul leanings.
Since the turn of the millennium, duo Dego and Marc Mac have experimented more with the mellow sounds of soul and hip-hop, including collaborations with Terry Callier and Jill Scott on their last record, Creating Patterns. When I say soul don’t think Otis, think Minnie Ripperton. Had she been born thirty years later, Minnie and Charles Stepney could have easily cut many of these tracks on a Rotary Connection album. The subtlety of the arrangements slips by like feathered clouds in the stratosphere, and vocalists drop into the record almost as numerously as the rain. Among the enormous talent pool here are MTV darling Jody Watley and one of every crate diggers favorite producers, Larry Mizell.
Most of these performances enhance the record. Darien Brockington croons beautifully on “Give In,” which Phonte of Little Brother also delivers a verse on. Ursula Rucker’s half-sung poetry on “The Awakening” perfectly accents the forward marching beat. But the cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Superwoman” sounds close enough to the original that they could have just slipped in eight minutes from Music Of My Mind as tribute.
Despite the torrent of guests, 4Hero’s immaculate production streams beautifully from mountain source to delta. This is a gorgeous album with a mood perfectly suited for it’s early spring release. As warmth creeps northbound from the equator and Earth’s cycles begin anew, Carina Andersson sings, “Open your eyes to the morning of your life.”

"Black Star Traveler" #art #painting on #canvas by #nathanjalanitaylor "We are made of stars, in the center of a black star there is no time or space but there is only now. White is vibration of light creation. Black is the darkness of the infinite universe and the Most High. Red is the blood, the liquid light that flow through our veins. Green is Mother Earth, maker and sustainer of our body. Black Star Travelers journey to this world and many realms through the spiritual teleportation of imagination, visions, dreams, and rebirth." -Nathan Jalani Taylor #space #time #spiral #spirit Visit Nathan's Art Studio #NYCSupport Original #artwork at #indiegogo
