Sabbath? – Killing Yourself to Live

2 07 2019

It is obvious what Third Eye Blind means, so it isn’t much of a mental challenge to get that some of their lyrics may be about chi/energy and chakras. It has taken me a bit of time to realize that Black Sabbath essentially means the same. A blind third eye. Sabbath is of course a day of rest, and Black is a veil that you are not able to see through, so according to the mystery school of ‘Poetic Phonetics,’ Black Sabbath is the rest that one receives when faith becomes part of your thinking. Guessing, or planning ahead in ways which only mean gain, or victory, absent compassion or wisdom just lead to desolation, or Babylon’s arrhythmia. A separation of heart from the vibration of the land, leading to less and less effective stewardship, friendship, and for those of us who listen, music.

Curiously, in my somewhat addled neuron matrix, I am reminded of Matthew 6:26 , in which we are reminded that we are taken care of because of how much our compassionate creator cares for us. (Yes, once again, from a Black Sabbath song.) How could you read the scripture that Matthew has written about and not be reminded of what was sung in the Sabbath psy-alm Killing Yourself to Live?
‘You work your life away and what do they give?
You’re only killing yourself to live’

Today, remember that many of us are all feeling the same, our work here is not done, yet, we are taken care of.
