Amanda In the Mirror

Michael Jackson says it so well in so many of his songs and this one in particular is a Theme song of mine because I feel like it speaks so clearly to what I am doing in my own life. Every little step counts, every little change matters and everything we do impacts everyone else in the world. I know for me, sometimes a change for the better can initially feel like a step into the negative but if it is my heart guiding me to take that step then I can trust that from the dark emerges the light. A natural, full circle effect that happens everyday of our lives. Letting go of the resistance to being my best self. Be brave enough to look into the dark spaces and find the spark of light that resides somewhere in the middle. No one is all dark and no one is all light, I strive for balance but with balance comes a very necessary honesty with oneself and the need to accept all parts that exist. Shine the light on the dark spots and bring them into the light for all the see. If everyone wore their full faces everyday the division between us would crumble as our true oneness in being human would be revealed. We never think we will be on the other side of the coin but it can happen at anytime to anyone. This is a tough challenge, being human, but if we all do it together we will see it can be a beautiful ride. I am grateful for all the various kinds of support I have received from friends, family and perfect strangers who have helped me on my journey so far. Thank you to those who have been brave enough to face themselves which in turn help me face even more of myself. Hari Om (Hindu Healing Mantra)

 

“Man In The Mirror”

I’m Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life
It’s Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .

As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
Favourite Winter Coat
This Wind Is Blowin’ My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See
Their Needs
A Summer’s Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top
And A One Man’s Soul
They Follow Each Other On
The Wind Ya’ Know
‘Cause They Got Nowhere
To Go
That’s Why I Want You To
Know

I’m Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change

I’ve Been A Victim Of A Selfish
Kind Of Love
It’s Time That I Realize
That There Are Some With No
Home, Not A Nickel To Loan
Could It Be Really Me,
Pretending That They’re Not
Alone?

A Widow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody’s Broken Heart
And A Washed-Out Dream
They Follow The Pattern Of
The Wind, Ya’ See
Cause They Got No Place
To Be
That’s Why I’m Starting With
Me

I’m Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself And
Then Make A Change

Take A Look At Yourself And
Then Make The Change
You Gotta Get It Right, While
You Got The Time
‘Cause When You Close Your
Heart
You Can’t Close Your . . .Your
Mind!

No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself And
Then Make A Change

Gonna Feel Real Good Now!
I’m Gonna Make A Change
It’s Gonna Feel Real Good!
Come On!
Just Lift Yourself
You Know
You’ve Got To Stop It.
Yourself!
I’ve Got To Make That Change,
Today!

You’ve Got To
You’ve Got To Move! Come
On! Come On!
You Got To . . .
Stand Up! Stand Up!
Stand Up!
Stand Up And Lift
Yourself, Now!

Gonna Make That Change . . .
Come On!

Make That Change.
