with respect due to Stanley Clarke, and all the great guitarists of all time...nothing comes before and later than this that is the same or better, in tune with the Electric Universe
Carlos Santa was Supra, super luminous, in total connection with the universe, the spirit of existence.
I don't know how it happened but it was Carlos who was in touch with the SPIRIT and he brought IT out and gave it to us all to touch, feel, immerse ourselves in..left it here forever as witness to his passage through
I Met God Once..and here IT is: at that time It was Carlos Santana.
I sat and gloried in IT's presence. I was at peace and in heaven but altogether it was too soon over and I was in search of god again. God had moved on and I was en trail.
where is god so I can pin IT down, stay with IT forever. will God permit that, will IT be pinned down?
I don't want to wake up....ever!
every god dam thing ends..and begins, and ends and, starts again...not even a start, restart, just flows into ever, changing ever..like my memory..one whole thing, continuous thing from start to now but changing ever......
will my memory ever end, my memory out in my cloud, not in my body but around me, my soul that never dies but goes on..to what, forever........
I want to know..do I ever want to know..forever.......
the light shines it is bright, supra luminous...the ELECTRIC UNIVERSE
All Principle, Discipline, Honesty
All Comes from God who is Nature out of which all come, and ALL is.
God, Nature, is growth, in formation ever, ever evolutionary and unmade, being made..existence as we go.
there is no permanent law of the universe! there is nothing in existence that is permanent save nature in formation, in creative motion: all that exists and live is in motion, seeking to go on in life, seeking security and permanence..really creating existence as they go..as we go
nature is not the god of the religions. nature is more powerful than he and nature is a woman, female, the sweet emanation of all. nature is us as god too, of god, as nature. we are god but we must learn to be god, come to know how to be god.
we have a lot to learn and maybe it will take a long time but we do not have that time. Time is no on our side.
we must learn now before we commit suicide..that we are god in the making, on the move and must retreat from our immaturity, rather go past it to give ourselves the time to learn to be god.. and so earn all the time there is
words fail Chairman relative to Maria...limitless creativity, the most beautiful motion..the spirit of existence.
you see Maria...gorgeous, utterly mysterious. she starts out mesmerizing us, leaves us as mysteriously, walks away into what we do not know...by the end we still don't know her and we want more, much more, we want to know....she is so beautiful
we go on in anticipation....we are still waiting, eagerly. she will reappear wont she, and we will know all there is to know...wont we????
there was a lead singer for Santana in the early days..the Abraxas days...big powerful very dark guy, impressively Black, strikingly powerful, powerful voice.
when I first saw that guy and heard him sing I was knocked out, stunned and captured. and so captured I was worried seriously for some years after that: was I homosexual?
that is what that guys brought home to me..that question..homosexuality! I was in all honestly attracted to that guy, captured by him. and if he was nearby and was so bent I would have had a real impossible time keep him at bay..if I could at all
I realized all that from that moment..I was attracted to man..real attraction. I was bothered, and bothered, and bothered. it tormented me..until I worked it. a man..heterosexual..can be attracted to another man and it does mean he is homosexual. it can happen for whatever reason but it does not mean much beyond the attraction.
I was slowly relieved, until I could let go of my fear fully. I did not want to move too fast lest I be wrong and caught up again.
relief! but I will never forget that guy. he soon stopped singing for Santana and disappeared. but he was great, terrific..a flashing star
