The Daily Walk with Miracles

The Alan Parsons Project, with the core of
Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson, never
were a huge commercial success, although
their ‘Eye in the Sky’ album won them a following.
You could describe them as “esoteric, progressive rock.”
It ALL sounds great to me! Here is a great album,
“Gaudi,” (1987), with many resources for you.

The Daily Walk with Miracles, November 15, 2016, by Paul Evans, video is Progressive Rock – The Alan Parsons Project – Gaudi (1987), courtesy of “Prog Rock” and YouTube. Alan Parsons Project is to me a tour de force, and the coolest thing around in progressive rock, with songs about what its like to be mentally ill, songs about aliens and ancient Egypt, songs dealing in wisdom, about growing old, songs which teach you about life, and with an absolutely wonderful sound. For my own essay on “secrets” given here, I want to thank my teachers Paul Yuhanick and Dan Hershberger, my long-time friend Bert Bishop, and Paul’s wife Tammy, who has given wonderful support, (oh, and our dogs, Arby and Leda and Rocky).

WHAT’S GOING ON AND WHY I HAVE SUFFERED SO AND WHAT THE GOOD PEOPLE ARE STANDING IN THE WAY OF: There is a HUGE Jezebel spirit neo-nazi conspiracy AND a big Communist conspiracy AND the conspiracy of the 13 ruling families to kill us off and replace the common man with robots. And GOD AND Donald Trump and the Christian militia and the CIA and Anonymous say ain’t NONE of those happening. I’m Paul, 60, in Wooster, Ohio and btw I am “single and looking,” for friends email Paul at paul.miracles57@gmail.com I TRUST Donald Trump to give us good conservative leadership and lead America out of the wilderness. God Bless everyone!!

As far as popular superstitions about ME, I am a spiritual, charismatic Christian man, 60, in Wooster, Ohio, but quite willing to relocate for the right woman. I’m “single and wishing,” alone in the world and quite lonely. I do NOT channel the artificial intelligence, the ways I know to enhance one’s mind just make a person this damned smart, PLUS sometimes I like to think I psychically channel the the aliens themselves, or even God sometimes inspires me. So I am “single and wishing” in #Wooster, #Ohio. I SMOKE AND I’m POOR. Any rich widows out there are encouraged to email Paul Evans at paul.miracles57.com. You DON’T have to look like a Playboy bunny, just be smart, hopefully, and love music. I DON’T care what race you are or even if you are “witchy,” but don’t expect to dominate me, but to submit yourself, as a Christian woman should. Amen. (Actually I hope for a very affectionate relationship based on mutual trust and love, one involving a full sharing of burdens and joys.) Email Paul at paul.miracles57@gmail.com.

Some of the “Secrets” I Have Learned

[((Featured photograph in this article is Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons, courtesy of Billboard.com.))] I have theorized on this site a lot about comparative religion. I have spoken about Logos, Revelation and my thoughts about the real meaning of it, the Yin-yang, the Gaia Hypothesis and much more, and really this has been much more a personal exploration than has meant to be any “definitive” sort of truth. I hope you all realize that. I have now come to see that the whole yin-yang model about reality is overblown and mainly false. I now believe, that as the Bible says, “God IS Life,” that the Source and the Force is Life itself, that there is something very sacred about Life, and that we should honor it and value it much more than our society does. So now I try to “stay centered and balanced and grounded” and not slip too far into either a yin OR a yang framed of mind. For those who might wonder at this point what I mean by that, let me give you a sort of word association grouping of what is associated with each of them. It is yang/left-brained/logic and words/male/sunny days/Jesus sorts of things against yin/right brained/intuition/darkness/night/Satan sorts of things. In western society these conflict terribly but it need not be so, in eastern thought (Hinduism to a large degree and totally in Buddhism and Taoism) yin and yang are considered to be complementary and NOT oppositional at all. So I think what is sacred is Light, and that light is a goodness, the source of life itself, and Love is a great force for good, but what is sacred is mostly Light itself.

HOWEVER, as a “counterfoil” to this, CONSIDER: Photons have no mass, and so are theoretically kind of infinite particles, yet sunlight has definite limits. But how can a given particle of a definite size and having certain properties “have no mass,” NO, God is all and God is Everything, “The Great All,” if you will, and what is Holy IS Light and Life and Love, the Holy Trinity. Light itself is the Source and the Force, as photons are a sort of “impossible particle” which has NO MASS. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, witches. [(What you should start believing, is that there are different “levels of divinity” and that the earth-moon synergy is real and important, but that the WHOLE UNIVERSE is ALIVE, and that (also) Christian witches are NOT at ALL crazy, though I am not one, I simply study comparative religion.) I’m NOT a witch of any sort, I was shunned and mocked by these people, I am a spiritual, charismatic Christian.] And GOD is very real to me, and guides me and helps me all the time.

You can “get there,” to a “place” where yin and yang are complementary and you find mental ability and personal peace, either by opening the Corpus callosum between your brain’s neocortical hemispheres or else somewhat by living as Jesus taught. This means being kind even when it costs, and not judging and hurting people at almost any cost. There is also the exercise of simply holding your breath and bearing down, that tends to open the blood/brain barrier and also the Corpus callosum. But the main thing is, to affirm life and never death or hate, and to stay firmly centered and grounded as you live your life. I just wanted to help you all, so I studied comparative religion on and off for 37 years, and this is what I was able to come up with. God Bless and Blessed Be. ~ Paul Evans.

I first was introduced to The Alan Parson’s Project on Senior Skip Day in high school, which was basically the first time I ever got a little drunk, too, but in this case it was a happy experience. It was only later in my life that drinking became a negative, destructive experience. I have never abused alcohol since the mid-eighties and have been totally sober for about a year-and-a-half now. So I’m a reformed, sober alcoholic, and much better for the experience: you can do it too! I know lots of people who have. Some of the coolest people in my life have had some sort of addiction issue, it’s all in how you “handle it” and what you do about it. See my page on Addiction and Rehab Resources, June 30, 2016, by Paul Evans. I almost feel like alcoholics, addicted people and the mentally ill are my particular friends in life: like we’re the ones who have been hurt so much in this life, so that we are the ones that “get it,” get how badly people treat each other and how hard life is. God I sure wish we could only begin to really, actually “Love our neighbors as ourselves.” Yeah, that costs, but it makes you happy, too. Let’s all get happy, people. Amen.

Being kind, makes you kind; and living like Jesus taught, makes you like Jesus.

The Alan Parsons Project

Please feel encouraged to visit The Alan Parsons Project official website, or read about them on Wikipedia, which summarizes the band:

The Alan Parsons Project were a British progressive rock band, active between 1975 and 1990, consisting of Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson surrounded by a varying number of session musicians and some relatively consistent band members such as guitarist Ian Bairnson, bassist and vocalist David Paton, drummer Stuart Elliott, and vocalist Lenny Zakatek.

Behind the revolving line-up and the regular sidemen, the true core of the Project was the duo of Parsons and Woolfson. Parsons was an audio engineer by profession, but also a musician and a composer. A songwriter by profession, Woolfson was also a composer, a pianist, and a singer. Almost all songs on the band’s albums are credited to “Parsons/Woolfson”.

The Alan Parsons Project, with the core of Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson, never were a huge commercial success, although their “Eye in the Sky” album won them a following. It ALL sounds great to me. They still make music today, and have a cult following. Ammonia Avenue was one of their really good albums, as is their Project Robot and the lesser known Tales of Mystery and Imagination. I think my own personal favorite Alan Parsons Project album is Gaudi, from 1987, an album of which I believe few people are aware, but which richly rewards the listener.

Recommended stuff to feed your head with from November 12, 2016 is Feed Your Head: Finding Personal Peace and Mental Ability, The Daily Walk with Miracles, by Paul Evans.

Old Is Cool summarizes The Alan Parson’s Project, the album Ammonia Avenue, and their contribution to rock and rock culture AND society as follows:

One of the most interesting aspects about the Alan Parsons Project is the band’s ability to forge a main theme with each of its songs, while at the same time sounding extremely sharp and polished. Much of this formula is used in Ammonia Avenue, only (at all times) …the songs rise above Parsons’ overall message due to the sheer beauty of the lyrics partnered with the luster of the instruments. The album touches upon how the lines of communication between people are diminishing, and how we as a society grow more spiritually isolated and antisocial. But aside from the philosophical concepts prevalent in the lyrics, it is the music on this album that comes to the forefront. The enchanting saxophone of Mel Collins on “Don’t Answer Me” adds to its lonely atmosphere, while the briskness of Eric Woolfson’s wording throughout “Prime Time” makes it one of the Project’s best singles. On “You Don’t Believe,” the seriousness of the lyrics works well with the song’s energetic pace. The subtlety of the ballad comes to life on the elegant “Since the Last Goodbye,” which focuses on a failed attempt at a relationship. With Ammonia Avenue, the sum of the parts is greater than the whole product, which can’t be said for all of the Alan Parsons Project’s albums. Vocalists Eric Woolfson, Chris Rainbow, Lenny Zakatek, and Colin Blunstone equally shine, placing their talents above and beyond the album’s main idea.
