Posts Tagged ‘hapopy cell song’

“See yourself as a single cell in a body called humanity, and vow to be a cell that cooperates with all adjacent cells and has a sense of belonging to the whole.” Wayne Dyer

Your body creates 1,000,000,000 new cells every hour. Is it possible to keep them all happy, as in the Happy Cell Song“Every little cell in my body is happy. Every little cell in my body is free. Every little cell in my body is happy, every little cell in my body loves me. I’m so happy, I’m so free, I’m so happy I’ve just gotta be me. I’m so happy, I’m so free, I’m so happy, it’s so good to be me.”

My four year old granddaughter personifies this song, in truth. She is just so happy to be herself! And she shows it.

Then if I have these happy cells, are they willing to be cooperative with all their adjacent cells? Will they have a sense of belonging to the whole, as Dyer says?

I think they need to because at my deepest level, I have arrived at a life philosophy that I don’t think will change much from here on out.  I am a happy person, like my cells, at my deep core; a new-found happiness that does not seem dependent upon circumstances and has stood up to that test many times. Only the roots of this happiness have deepened into the fertile ever-growing ground of faith.

This seems to have developed a confident trust in me, that is much stronger than the wavering toe-in-the-water trust upon which it was built. No shifting sands here.

There is a line in an old Glen Campbell song, “I was a oak, now I’m a willow, I can bend”…….always loved that line and applied it to my own life many times.

I guess I am thinking about my cells for two reasons today. I’ve seen both my urologist, because I really want to make some progress on not getting up so many, many times at night, and we’ve got a plan……..then I also had my yearly mammogram, a necessary but never looked-forward-to experience.

So from tip to toe, I’ve been focused today on my body cells, and “cellebrated” on the way home by singing the Happy Cell Song.  I know I have a healthy body and I am very grateful for it.

And I have an intention to live my life the way I’ve asked my cells to:  Be happy, and cooperate with the person next to me and always keep the sense alive in me that we are all CONNECTED and part of ONE, which none of us understands.

I’ve followed many spiritual texts and writers that agree upon this and now in my queries into biology, brain study, HeartMath coherence theories of brain and heart intelligence, I find it there as well.

Barbara Marx Hubbard and her new book on Emergence and the Project of Shift – Earth Birth Day on Dec. 22, 2012, is heralding a call to attend to these matters of the heart and our life values to bring about an evolution of humankind that is not a distant theory, but one that is at hand in the moment.

I don’t know how this all works out, but I know we’ve got some things wrong here on Earth, and our current ways of being in politics, education, peace initiatives, and even religions are still too “grabby” and “mine-is-the-right-way” to be able to solve the problems of violence, poverty, and prejudice.

The Earth sits here as our mother, willing to offer us another solution — another way of being than how we are being at the moment.

So I’m willing to listen. For another thing they all seem to be saying is that IF we get quiet enough, if we can stop the non-stop brain chatter and ego-leader in us,  there is another voice awaiting to be heard. The Divine Voice.

And it comes from within us – every one of us — and if every ONE of us hears that voice, we are surely on our way to a new way of being.

There may be a few birth pains getting there.
