Grandma's Hands
Bill Withers Lyrics


Grandma's hands
Clapped in church on Sunday morning
Grandma's hands
Played a tambourine so well
Grandma's hands
Used to issue out a warning
She'd say, "Billy don't you run so fast
Might fall on a piece of glass
"Might be snakes there in that grass"
Grandma's hands

Grandma's hands
Soothed a local unwed mother
Grandma's hands
Used to ache sometimes and swell
Grandma's hands
Used to lift her face and tell her,
She'd say "Baby, Grandma understands
That you really love that man
Put yourself in Jesus hands"
Grandma's hands

Grandma's hands
Used to hand me piece of candy
Grandma's hands
Picked me up each time I fell
Grandma's hands
Boy, they really came in handy
She'd say, "Matty don' you whip that boy
What you want to spank him for?
He didn't drop no apple core"
But I don't have Grandma anymore

If I get to Heaven I'll look for
Grandma's hands

Love you Bill....How to Feel the Human “Soul” Through Self-Experimentation (Quick Guide)

-The pleasurable “chills” or “goosebumps” experienced when listening to music, watching movies, viewing art, dancing etc. are the beginning of the sensation of what is called the “soul” in western civilization. Generally, this begins on the arms, back, or neck when a person feels profound emotions. It is most likely you have already experienced it to some degree.

-If you pursue this sensation within yourself by attempting to feel it as much as possible (all day, every day if you are able), it builds in strength significantly over time to the point where it becomes a full body sensation with the pinnacle being at the crown of the skull. You must become your own experiment as each individual’s set of beliefs and emotional reactions are unique.

-One fundamental key to the sensation is to achieve states of genuine, positive emotions such as love, gratitude, inspiration, courage, joy, etc. (Therefore, anything that enables you to feel these emotions will work. Conversely, anything that prevents these, will prevent your sensation.)

-You will be required to be honest with yourself. This cannot be emphasized enough. Simply saying you feel love or gratitude, does not mean that you actually feel those emotions. This is why stimuli is extremely helpful such as music, movies, etc. to provoke those emotions in a genuine and real sense.

-Be patient and be understanding of yourself if you feel you are struggling. Trust your feelings. This is a progression and it will take some time to strengthen as your brain reforms its pathways via neuroplasticity. (Weeks to many months depending on commitment.) Love yourself unconditionally for the greatest success.

-Your sensation will inevitably grow in strength with persistence and you will begin to feel it more easily to a broader range of stimuli. You will eventually realize it is not the stimuli at all, but only your emotional state and control of your mind/thoughts that matter.

-It is this same sensation that monks attempt to achieve during meditation and chanting. (The chants are to create vibrations in the chest which can stimulate the sensation.)

-It is the same sensation that “spirit runners” or indigenous long-distance runners attempt to achieve. (Also called “runner’s high” in the west.)

-The current scientific term for the sensation is “Frisson” and it remains relatively unexplained in the public sector being reduced simply to a release of endorphins. (Western slang refers to it as a “skin orgasm.”)

-Other names include: Chakra Energy, Kundalini Energy, Prana, Mana, Qi, Chi, and Holy Spirit among others. (Google “CIA Gateway Process” for a consciousness study from US Gov’t. The sensation occurs when the brain achieves "Hemi-Sync" as referred to in the study.)

*This is meant to be a simple 1-page document. This is an extremely over-simplified version but hopefully an effective introduction for anyone who needs it. *

Intended with love, best of luck to all. Remember to always know in your heart there is no wrong way, only learning and growth.
