Feel Good by Carly Rose Sonenclar

This is an old song written in 1960s, very popular, but it was only last year when I  first heard it,  then at the dawn of 2013 I posted it on my timeline.  ‘It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life…’ that was what I felt at the new year eve.  And more over in this video the 13 year old Carly Rose astonished everyone with her juvenile but creative variance of singing.


Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree you know how I feel

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don’t you know

Butterflies all havin’ fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That’s what I mean

And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel


感觉真好 –

















Carly Rose’s singing really brings you the sense of new life with excitement, I really feel it whenever I  listen to  her singing it! So much love to it. Then when I searched about the song writing, other versions of singing came alive to me.  Michael Buble’s version with his beautiful voice and more of jazz rythm really attractive.  You can listen to it here  http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMzI1OTI5NzU2.html

Let me know how you feel in 2013, this new Dawn of human history – a new milestone of human consciousness!

Love and Peace!

丹顶鹤的故事The Story of A Red-crowned Crane (A True Story)

This is a True Story…

After hearing this song, no words are really needed to express our feelings – the sadly moving melody, the images of flocks of quiet crane birds in the sky, the silent waving reeds…

Here are lyrics and Translation although you can also see a slight variance on the screen:

(唱)走过那条小河,你可曾听说,有一位女孩她曾经来过?走过这片芦苇坡,你可曾听说,有一位女孩她留下一首歌? 为何片片白云悄悄落泪?为何阵阵风儿低声诉说?啊! 啊!



Translation: Story of the Red-Capped Crane

A girl loved to feed red-crowned cranes ever since her childhood. She came back to the place where she used to feed the cranes after graduating from university. But one day, trying to save a wounded crane, she sank into the marshland and never came up again.

(When you) pass by the little river, have you ever heard that a girl was once here? (When you) pass the reed slope, have you ever heard that a girl left a beautiful song behind?
Why are the clouds weeping silently? Why are the winds whispering? There is still a flock of red-crowned cranes, flying away quietly……

(When you) pass by the little river, have you ever heard that a girl was once here? (When you) pass the reed slope, have you ever heard that a girl never come again?
Only the clouds are weeping silently? only the winds are singing for her? There is still a flock of red-capped cranes, flying away quietly……

*This song could be taught at an early intermediate level

True story - The story of a Red-crown Crane

The girl was 徐秀娟(1964—1987), born in a Crane nurturing family. She loved Red-crown Cranes and nature. After training she was sent to a National Wildlife Reserve taking care of red-cranes. One day during the care 2 cranes flew away. Xu and her colleagues went out around the clock trying to find the birds back, one of them was found the first night, but the other still no sign. Xu was so worried and went out midnight again after other people got back, in vain. The next day they again went out very early, many hours passed, the 2nd bird was back, but no one saw Xu, the girl any more. Later they found her from the river where they once went into the river searching for the birds, but it’s too late…

More than half of the residents in the village attended her memorial, and it’s said flocks of cranes hovering over her tomb when passing there each spring. A Statue was erected in commemoration of her passion for wildflife and selfless spirit. In 1990 this story was written into a song by a famous musician and sung by Zhu zheqin, and it immediately got a lot of response and the song and the singer went popular …

Let the spirit fly with the song passing on in the world, let your heart filled with the spirit, let your deeds melt in  the spirit …   And happiness with wildlife, happiness with the world!

Lots of Love and Peace!

New Understanding of the Christian Trinity – a guidance in our daily life on earth (2)

Nothing has to be a certain way. Do you know in Christianity there are different beliefs about God? Such as Trinitarianism -three divine persons, Binitarianism – One deity in 2 persons, Unitarianism – one deity in one person.
Trinitarianism believes Father, Son and The Holy Spirit are the 3 Divine persons in one God
Binitarianism beilieves Father and Son are the two divine persons or gods, but does not believe The Holy Spirit God, rather the power essence that flows/emanates between both the Father and the Son. While contrast to Trinitarianism, Unitarianism believes in One person God, and holding a belief that Jesus was a prophet.

The concept of Trinity was only first used by someone in 3rd century when explaining about the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are in one Essence, not in one person. Which belief are you holding?

Well, I understand the different doctrines only came/come into alive along with the development/expansion of human consciousness. All these doctrines are actually reflections of our understandings about the relationships between the Source – God, human being, his creation and the Spirit. Where ever the understandings of human consciousness reach the doctrines stop.

I see the Father, the Son and the Spirit are the symbols of the Oneness God, Human beings/living beings and the Supreme Spirit respectively. We human beings are the creations of God, in us flows the blood of God, our Father, and the blood is the symbol of the Spirit which connects to the Two of Us. That’s why I believe, and a lot of people believe that we’re also divine creatures, we are like God, our Creator, our Father, but we are never be our Creator, Father, we are just a fraction of Him. Therefore do not be bold enough to think we are God and try to build a tower to Heaven to match Him, for this ignorance we’ve already made our Mother Earth weeping.

This also made me think of the Sunday Holy Meal at church (Eucharist). When you take ‘the Bread’ and the “Wine’, the priest always repeats what Jesus said when he offered: this is my body which is for you, and this is my blood’. How do you understand this rite? At the very beginning I’m sure you’re so moved when thinking our Lord died for your sin and to show your thanksgivings, but does it become a routine formula for you? Maybe about the true meanings of the words you haven’t got anywhere. Think of this: Does Our Lord Jesus just want us to thank him and remember him by sacrificing his life for us? Is there something more important that he wants us to understand? Blood is the Spirit, by drinking His blood are we drinking/taking in The Spirit, therefore should we live in his Spirit, the Spirit, God? We after all are part of God, should be like God…

No room for Jesus Salvation in this posting, will do in next one!
