There are different types of keys. Some people love keys on a chain. To myself and others growing up each new key meant growth in our lives; steps to being grown up. First was a key to my diary. This gave me identification. This was my diary, and private. Then a key to the house. I was a trusted part of a valuable group of people; the most important people in my life. I was given a key to my very own locker in school. By now I felt very special. I didn’t get a key to the family car, but I was able to borrow the keys. That privilege included me even deeper into the trusted key club.  The more keys one had, the more worth was felt.

I must have been about 9 years old when I asked my piano teacher to include the words in the popular songs he wrote out for me to practice. Who knew then that was the key to my eventual stage singing career and recording contract in NYC. Back then, I was learning the keys on a piano and the sounds they each make, plus what they sound like together in chords. Those keys of a chord can actually bring about an emotion in a person. The emotion is often a key to a thought or memory and that feeling can drive our mood.

I’ve also learned that musical notes are keys to various parts of our bodies as well, and have the potential to heal us in many ways. I’m talking about the key notes like F, G, A, B, C, D, E and their sharps (#). Each are also linked to a color and astrology signs medically.

As evolving conscious beings, we keep learning, or should I say discovering/uncovering, new keys to living that have always been there waiting for ‘the reveal.’ In the ancient Tarot cards, the Heirophant picture, which looks like a highly respected and revered spiritual person dressed for the ‘part,’ sitting on a throne, depicts keys laying at his feet. I think spirituality is a big key for living in joy and peace. It’s an ‘inside’ job.

When we marry science with spirituality, we can unlock ever evolving insights. Author, speaker Gregg Braden is capable of relating ancient as well as the latest findings from both worlds in a way we can all understand. When we seek (information) we shall find. We may read enlightening books, listen to CDs, watch DVDs, even see programs on mainstream TV, or attend live events with tens of thousands, yet our own children are still being taught outdated science in school. It is scientifically documented that what we learned growing up is no longer true, yet the education system will still fire a teacher for even mentioning that there is updated established information about the world we live in, and that we affect our world just by the nature of our feelings.

We can do some home-schooling in a sense. First educate yourself, then pass it on to your kids. You’ll learn that every one of us is a creator and that feelings count more than we were taught. We all need to work collectively in brotherhood rather than competitively as previously taught in school that the strongest survive. Not only do 150-year-old theories still thrive in our education, and effect how individuals and nations act, but could be the reason why nations felt and feel it is right to kill off races or cultures, and kids bully each other. Truth is, warring is not innate, but actually foreign to human nature. And taught to us all (where?)

No matter what key you sing it in, altogether now for the Beatles song, All You Need Is Love. Love, love, love. Love, love, love…You can learn how to play the game, it’s easy…Love, love, love.
