Need a bit of inspiration?

Well, I am feeling a little bit beaten at the moment. Sometimes it feels like getting people to change habits and attitudes is just an uphill battle. But this is an utterly useless way to feel so I found inspiration in the same spot that I usually find it – the amazing brain of Xavier Rudd. If you are like me and need a little bit of help converting anger into action today, then have a read of these lyrics or better yet watch the video. What a beautiful soul.

“Messages”

Xavier Rudd

So now come sit down
Will you talk with me now
And let me see through your eyes
Where there is so much light
We are biding our time
For these myths to unwind
For these changes we will confront

So please be aware with every
Place that you herald
And look to your soul
For these things that you know
For the trees that we see
Cannot forever breathe
With the changes they will confront

You know some people they just won’t understand
No, they just won’t understand
These things
Thank you for your message but I don’t understand
No they just won’t understand
These things

And this sacred land
It has seen many hands
It has wealth and gold
Now it is fragile and old
And now the greedy souls just don’t care to know
Of the changes it will confront

So speak out loud
Of the things you are proud
And if you love this coast
Then keep it clean as it evolves
Because the way that it shines
May just dwindle with time
With the changes it will confront

You know some people they just won’t understand
No, they just won’t understand
These things
Thank you for your message but I don’t understand
No they just won’t understand
These things

So hold nice and close
Once you get to your soul
So that when it is cold
You won’t feel so alone
‘Cause the roads that you take
May just crack and break
With the changes you will confront

With each gift that you share
You may heal and repair
With each choice you make
You may help someone’s day
Well I know you are strong
May your journey be long
And now I wish you the best of luck
Well I know you are strong
May your journey be long
And now I wish you the best of luck.

  1. Thank you for posting this video. I only came to your site very recently and am working my way through all of your blogs. I often feel surrounded by people who don’t understand and it is so wonderful to find people in my home town who do understand. Keep up the amazing work you do, you inspire me to work harder!
