2,159.  The only solution that we have is choosing to sing a new song.  You hold the choice of living a lethal lie resulting in a shallow and enslaved existence or celebrating the greater truth about the sacredness of your spirit, your genetics, your divine connection and your ability to uniquely contribute to humanity at this crucial time.  It is time for a new song.  (Life’s Like That & Song)  Dr Len Horowitz
