The Palace of the Mind

Soul Snack 64/13 ... The Palace of the Mind

Carlos Santana - that goliath of all guitarists strums his spirit as he strums his strings. On November 7th 2012 he added a poetic At Our Core to Facebook.

At our core
We are good, decent, honest, true, yes divine
We are capable of creating miracles
By offering compassion, forgiveness & mercy
We walk with sentientness
The light in our eyes
The smile in our face
The gentle voice and healing touch
Gives, offers and brings illumination
To one and all
We are the conductors of a symphony called life
We are the architects of a rainbow bridge of love
Our consciousness flow gives birth
to a new exchange of currency
Unprecedented first time ever
New constant rhythm of love and light
Bringing heaven on earth
We call ourselves
Light beams from the divine mind
Of the supreme

His imagination is a palace furnished with an accomplished orchestra that cascades tuneful deceit upon his soul.

Santana has built upper rooms of self-lies and erected striking balustrades of darkness. His thoughts have fashioned luxuries to adorn his self-lit spacious chambers for there are no windows to the Light of the World.

Carlos has scoured his soul by a rich rhythm of demon-inspired and LSD induced navel gazing, absent to any outward influence of Truth. His warm mansion houses Heaven's phrases of love, mercy and gentleness without knowing their source. Man is no more divine at his core than he is a light beam of the divine mind.

The mind secures each man's singing. Choose well this day how you build your palace and who you will permit to write your lyrics.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Roms 12:2)

The Tree of Knowledge first rules the mind in its attempt to rule the heart.
