Early BeatlesSpiritual Coaching Vol 3 #15 Please. Please Me…

1 Peter 2:16 “Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.”

On this date in 1963 the rock group Beatles taped ten tracks of their first album. Then the exciting new rock group appeared in their first live performance in U.S.; Washington D.C. Coliseum on this date one year later. The world has never quite been the same. The Lads from Liverpool swept the world with a slightly disrespectful impertinent but endearing style. Their art was transformational. The world was ready for change. But fame was never completely comfortable for them – it swept over them and eventually was the demise of the group. Artistry has its own selfishness. That is what makes it art.

There are things that remain – steady and enduring qualities – decade after decade. The abraham_lincolndesire within each person to be free – to express oneself. It was that desire that also, on this date, impelled Abraham Lincoln to get on a train in Springfield, Illinois on his way to become the President of the United States in 1861. Freedom of expression is a gift of God. It’s a freedom we often don’t give thanks for. Freedom is not found in fame – it is not found in what is popular either – it is found in doing what makes the world a better place. Art, though selfish in some respects, inspires us to reach and achieve more than we thought we could. So in that way John Lennon and Abraham Lincoln may have been more kin that what you might think.

Celebrate your freedom of expression and give thanks to your creator.

Be Well
