♥ Gift of Acceptance ♥

Just a quick post to show you a new music video just released from the beautiful India.Arie & Idan Raichel, which is only online for 24 hours.

They just sang it at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, & I have to say, it is just so beautiful.

As I said in my last post, when it comes to music; positive, empowering & meaningful lyrics are a must for me. This song is the perfect example of amazing lyrics.

Here are a few lines from the song that India just posted on Twitter:

“Red, black, yellow, brown, or white, a man with a husband or a woman with a wife,

We can debate til the end of time, whose wrong and who is right, or I can honor your choices and you can honor mine,

Gandhi was a Hindu, Martin Luther King a Christian. Regardless of religion they knew love was the mission.

Give the world a present, give the gift of your acceptance. Give the world a present, give the gift of your acceptance.”

I’ve always loved India Arie; I listen to her music every single day. In my opinion, she is one of the most empowering & inspiring female musicians there is.

This is the real truth of the world. Imagine what we can all achieve if we just give up our needs to be right & instead give our acceptance.

Keep Smiling 🙂

  1. Beautiful song! Thanks for sharing or I’d have missed that. Definitely what the world needs right now 😀

  2. “Imagine what we can all achieve if we just give up our needs to be right & instead, ( want to) give our acceptance.”

    Great quote, may I borrow it (I will give you credit) to inspire a daily devotional for my blog???

    Wants and needs can be very confusing, if your concerns are only for yourself..if your concern is for the welfare of others, have faith,
    a Higher Power has already determined the consequences for our
    thoughts and actions.

    Hugs and Love, ME and the Boss
