Thank You
Just read the post above from beate and found it beautiful, inspiring and a timely reminder of why we are all here...to Love and BeLoved. How simple and yet challenging at the same time. It takes great courage to walk through life with an open heart; sharing and spreading Love. It is so worth it. Infinite gratitude to Sting for his soothing songs that indeed help heal a broken heart.

Faith in a stubborn inside voice
I always liked this song “If I ever lose my faith in you”, but to me it does not speak about anyone. “Faith in you” is faith in this deep inside voice; a stubborn silent inside voice that makes you to never give up hope in Love and Human Kindness. No matter how cruel is life, no matter how unlucky you are, you must not become bitter and you must keep faith in Love. “If I ever lose my faith in you”, is also about Love from “L'Amour de loin” the Kaija Saariaho's opera. “The journey of the troubadour can be seen as an allegory of the yearning for the trans-sensual, for the transcendent, or for God.” To keep faith in this yearning for a higher Love. Amin Maalouf's lyrics are simple and beautiful : “It is never Love that is unworthy, it is we who are sometimes unworthy of Love. It is never Love that betrays us, but we who betray Love.” There is pain when one is betrayed, when Love is betrayed. There is also much pain around the world when Human Kindness is betrayed. There are many reasons for one to lose faith in Love and Human Kindness. My history as listener of Sting's songs is connected with my history of failures and broken hearts. When I feel really good I do not listen to music for I have my own inside. Sorry. When I feel melancholic or sad, I listen to music. Music heals me. When I feel very bad I listen to some Sting's songs. Sorry. They are part of my emergency medicine set. His voice works as painkiller. When I feel even worse, when the painkiller does not work anymore I listen to Tom Waits, Billie Holiday or Elis Regina. If I ever lose my faith in you - Love and Human Kindness – There'd be nothing left for me to do. Hope in a higher Love is what make us still alive. “If I ever lose my faith in you”, “Whenever I say your name”, “A thousand years” and “The Dead Man's Rope” are the same song to me. They are about the same yearning for a higher Love whom we can feel when we find someone really connected with us. All those songs are about to keep walking through life and never give up faith in Love. It is how I understand those songs.

On the streets of Newcastle, Sting's home town and mine, the taxi drivers love him. They like him because he doesn’t take himself too seriously. They can joke with him, they say, and reminisce. He's a generous tipper, too. Match that with the multimillionaire whose life revolves between homes in Wiltshire, New York, Tuscany and Malibu. The rock star who likes to talk about the intricacies of Tantric sex and pose topless with Trudie Styler, his wife and mother of four of his six children. The environmentalist famous for saving rainforests and offsetting his rather large carbon footprint. You get a picture of a complicated individual...
