[Posted Monday, October 10, 2016]


Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

The last Daily Awakening was, I'm a Million Different People written on Saturday, October 8, 2016.

This morning my Musical DLG™ (Musical Download from God™) was 'Learning To Fly' by Pink Floyd. As you may know by now, every morning without fail I wake up hearing a song play outside of my head, as if the radio is playing, but yet it is not. Every so often this song eases its way back into depths of my soul and reminds me of who I am, what I can do and what I haven't yet done because I am still here. This is one of those songs where I could easily float out into the ethers under the guidance of spiritual ecstasy and miss the entire message.

David Gilmour, the singer, who is a licensed pilot, described this song as a metaphor for radical change in one's Life. At that time he was taking over as the frontman for Pink Floyd after Roger Waters left the band. I know the exhilariation of radical change because I have done it so many times in my Life. I also know the feeling of flying because in my mid-20's I took flying lessons for a while. I have also bungy-jumped, hang-glided, parasailed and skydived. When it comes to flying through the air with the greatest of ease, I'm pretty much all in. I don't seem to have any trouble rolling the dice on myself. I suppose in a way, we can all relate to being an earthbound misfit, although I have been known to fight it, with flight. As the song says, "Condition grounded but determined to try."

What I Love so much about this song is the line, "The soul intention it's learning to fly." It reminds me of the mother bird kicking the baby bird out of the nest. FLY OR ELSE! As parents it is our job to teach our children how to survive, without us. It is our job to teach our children how to fly on their own, not coddle them brainless and helpless. It reminds me to fly fearless in my Life and not to be afraid to step off the cliff and take a chance on myself. I am also reminded of the natal chart, which tells of the soul's motivation, the soul's intention and the soul's destiny as described by the lunar phase, the first house and the North Node. As I always say, When it's the Truth, it shows up everywhere! There is no need to overstate the obvious here. My sole intention is my soul's intention, and at 55 years old, I'm still learning to fly.

Enjoy!~ The lyrics are below the video.


by Pink Flyd

Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reel
A fatal attraction is holding me fast
How, can I escape this irresistible grasp?

Can't keep my eyes from the circling sky
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
No navigator to find my way home
Unladened, empty and turned to stone

The soul intention it's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

Friction lock - set
Mixtures - rich
Propellers - fully forward
Flaps - set - 10 degrees
Engine gauges and suction - check

Mixture set to maximum percent - recheck
Flight instruments...
Altimeters - check both
(garbled word) - on
Navigation lights - on
Strobes - on
(to tower): confirm 3-8-echo ready for departure
(tower): hello again, this is now 129.4
(to tower): 129.4. its to go
(tower): you may commence your takeoff, winds over 10 knots
(to tower): 3-8-echo
Easy on the brakes. take it easy. its gonna roll this time
Just hand the power gradually, and it...

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air,
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

There's no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, a state of bliss
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
