One mistake in many - the word why you are hear should real why you are here.

Mr. Abbiati.  I have been an full time activists and Revolutionary (Wanting complete change)  since Jan.   1969  1969.   I put what I do to help people up in front of anyone including your self.   I have been (still am) on the radio every weekday for 2 hours for 25 years talking about change.   I have been on local TV for 8 years once a week for an hour talking about change.   I have been public speaking to small group since 1975   1975   1975.    Also go to my Facebook home page and read what I share with over 1800 friends.  Ms. Ieandra Lavender (love the name)  What you or anyone can do depends on many factors.  Your age, what your reality is, the level of education,  your religious believes, your personal obligations, where you live and how much time and money you are willing to give.  I would suggest you meditate first for 20 mins. a day without fail.   Second go on a personal journey to find the real you.  At the same time you are finding the real you you will find out why you are hear.   When that happens you will know for a fact you are one with everything and you are connected to everything.   When that happens you will find out what you need to do to help change the shitty reality of the United States.      All this sound hard to do but it is not.  Once you are for real and really want to do it the Spirits will help you.   I do have one suggestion for you and everyone that is reading this.   Do not do any Christmas shopping until after Christmas day.    Second suggestion stop going to any church services and read the Bible out side in nature.  And read between the lines in the New Testament. Between the lines is what you want to believe.   Hope that help and hope it is a start for you.

among prophets and mentors there has always been people interested in promoting their own convenience as a matter of public domain...

life is not a football match, we must be only oriented to "peace goal"

we all know this site if for divine purpose so let off your fantasy and creativity to deal with topics you are not allowed to talk of anywhere else.

Dangerous people are not those who chat of unconvenient topics, but those who create separation and conflicts talking about nullity.

Another thing i noticed through the years is that many ones post and go in the hope to be picked up or catch the eyes of Carlos.....that's not a bad thing at all....only when you want to conquer someone you do the best....

but we all know that in the web comments and ratings are important and for that reason many read but don't comment rather more for sense of competition than for lack of ideas and fear of confrontation.....

when i have the time to i read also to other post and comment even if this thing increase other members popularity.

the miracle in our life is obtaining the best through sharing truth, it doesn't matter who speaks it out.....the strategy for peace is in pursuiting progress of the Whole community to be an example for the rest of the world...

few but good, at the end we are talking of sense of life which is not living without pain or confrontation, a world where we ask to our Brother or sister "what do you need" rather than shouting "give me those things trust etc"

I'm with you Vincente! So, what do you suggest? What we need are advocates for peace doing dangerous things in attempts to have a peaceful conversations with dangerous people!! What we NEED is action!! about you suggesting something? We must think of strategies for peace...always!!?

Two or three years ago when I found "Architect of a New Dawn" by Carlos I was extremely happy.    Knowing Carlos philosophy we were going to change the world.  No such thing happen.    The majority of the members of the different groups of Architect of a New Dawn are nothing else but Carlos groupies.   All they want to do is kiss his ass by saying he is so wonderful and how he has inspire them and on and on with lot of personal bull-shit.    We all even me know that Carlos is great and one of a kind.   But this  web sites are not for that.   We are suppost to be Architect of a New Dawn.   Do you all know what Architects do.   Do you know what the word New means.   We are suppose to be changing the world and not kissing Carlos ass with our remarks.  I love you guy and blessings this Christmas.  But I can not be wasting my time. We do not have much time left.

Mr. Santana I want to thank you for the inspiration you have given to me since I heard Sacred Fire in 93' A musical prophet in your own right for sure.You shared some of your most intimate thoughts and heart with the whole world, and I want you to know how brave and sacred that is. For what It's worth, your hope in humanity is great integrity.You have showed me an excellence, and beauty, grace, integrity with intention to an ultimate higher good.At the end of your life you can say I gave my heart, my everything, my all for a generation and a people to inspire and uplift.And God will say good job my faithful servant. Bless you Carlos, much extreme love to you.

I think Carlos will always be a Guadalupano, which is where much of his spirituality is coming from...I hear it constantly in all the music that he makes...even in the songs he uses to promote his Milagro Foundation, the Guadalupano Spirituality is there!!!  Even thou all of his music and his LIVE Concerts are full of surprises, all of Carlos' Music flows so gracefully...I would LOVE to someday sit in front of him and just listen to him talk and play...I truly believe he is one of the GREATEST MUSICAL PROPHETS OF OUR TIME...HE IS RIGHT UP THERE WITH BOB MARLEY and JOHN COLTRANE!!!

I would like to see an interview with Carlos addressing the former years of his musical journey from the early 70's and what has changed verses now? Where is he getting his spiritual thrust musically. Say for example the Sacred Fire tour in Mexico contrasting to today? Where do you all stand the differences of his music from former years to today?

Yep I think Shape Shifter is some of Calos's finest works.I just got done listenig to it, I think one of my favs is Nomad.Most of the songs on the album are played just so gracefully.

Comment by Lorenzo Abbiati on July 28, 2014 at 1:25am

every record and every concert by Carlos is a wonderful surprise....

his guitar brings healing. and the root of his work never change but at the same time brings variety.

he's like Virgilio (Dante) which accompains every listener through every music genre.....

I think he should have recorded every single show like Zappa did, and absolutely have to remain outside any discography pressure and to be let free from commercial schemes...

his last album is very "sunny" even una noche en napules with a few guitar brings happiness, iron zion is the top....of his last three works: (Mc lauglin Montreux and shape shifter, CORAZON is the best)

ANYWAY I am entertaining evenings with karaoke....the true miracle is leading Others into music...not showing off....

even most shy people sing with me and this gives me lots of pleasure...

I think I am living on an extremely lower scale what Carlos experiments in his life......
