There is a band called Dr. Dog. Jagger’s dad first told me about them probably about three years ago. He’s good about keeping Jag and I up to date about new music.
This band, Dr. Dog, has an album that includes a song that was relatively popular in satellite radio arenas called That Old Black Hole… Brilliant song. Listened to it about 1 million times. They also have another tune that I have recently discovered. It’s titled: How Long Must I Wait?
I’m addicted to this tune. I can’t shake it.
The lyrics are interesting. And then the last 1/3 of the song, they sing the chorus: How Long Must I Wait? Literally one dozen times. Over and over. Pounding and harmonizing. It resonates with me on a vibrational level. A piece of my soul wakes up and says — Indeed… Does anyone have the answer to that?
How Long Must I Wait? To understand my sister and connect with her in infinite kindness like so many other siblings seem to do all around me.
How Long Must I Wait? To provide for my family in a way that brings me peace and joy.
How Long Must I Wait? To see my mother again.
How Long Must I Wait? To write the book that resides within me.
How Long Must I Wait? To live the life I dream of.
How Long Must I Wait? To truly approve of myself and love myself unconditionally regardless of size, shape or anything external.
How Long Must I Wait? To know love everlasting.
How Long Must I Wait? To embody perfect love.
How Long Must I Wait? To have infinite faith in the Universe — no matter what.
How Long Must I Wait? To rise above mundane, petty habits like comparing self to others and indulging in darkness and shadow
How Long Must I Wait? To release my spirit and let it soar with the eagles.
How Long Must I Wait…
It gives me chills. I sing it incessantly. Give it a listen. Does it stir your soul too?
By the way, my wiser self says: Wait no more, child. You are all of these things and more already. Just be still and know.
