Mr. McDonwell I forgot one thing. If you started """Preaching'''' to me on my website or facebook I would block you too.

Mr. McDowell thank you for sharing with me what happen.  I now know the why of Mr. Santana actions. Right off the start let me share this Mr McDowell, it is not what you said but how you said it.  It shows that you are a sincere man and you truly true to your believe system. Many years ago the once famous magazine The TIMES had on is cover "Is God Dead"  This is a Multi-Dimensional question.  Since the beginning of the USA to the time of that cover every single person believe in God the same why. Different words or actions but the same stuff. Since then till now things have change and will keep changing.  The problem is that you are not changing.  As a teenage I was hoping to be a Priest. Years late I study to be a Deacon.  Lately, one of my 3 college degrees is my BA in MINISTRY. For over 20 years I struggle deeply with the question, should I remain a Catholic-Christian-Religious. On April 2007 I gave it all up.  I believe in God - Christ and lots more but I do not go to Church. I have been saying on the radio for 19 years that the number one enemy of a Christian is another Christian and it so true.  In addition Religion has become the biggest obstacle in reaching God.  Also Christ is not Jesus last name.  Jesus is dead, He died in the cross.  He did not die for our sins, he died because of our sins. The cross is the contradictions in life. On the Third Day it was Christ not Jesus who  resurrected. Just like you will someday. I do not want to get into any kind of """religious"""" discussion with you or anyone else. MY POINT is to share with you how thing are changing in a very big way.  But Christians like your self do not want to see it must less expect anything that does not go with your believe system.  My sincere advice to you is to stop listening to Mr. Santana music if you feel it because it is influencing you and your personal vibrations.  Look for a nice Christian Website where members believe like you do.  Besides in today's society its almost impossible to change anyone who does not want to change especially Christians. And it doesn't makie a different what Liberals and Positive Thinkers say about not given up. With you permission I want to share with you some personal advice.  Stop at once listening to any Minsters. Put the bible away for 3 to 6 months.  Start a journey of finding who you are. It will be the hardest journey you will ever take. YOUR Kingdom of God is inside of you.  Listen, silence is the language of God.  Meditate for 20 mins. a day every day without fail.  Later go to 40 minutes. In your thoughts tell God and your DNA that you need help to change and you will get it. If you put the same kind of energy to the new you you will go a long way, I promise. Blessing from the Christ Consciousness which you r a part off.  Tlamatini-vicente

Hey Vicente, yeah I told Carlos and encouraged him to get into biblical doctrine.And I talked about the problem of sin that we were born into sin.But Carlos thinks sin is an illusion.I understand he believes in Jesus  and the holy spirit.And I was questioning whether I should listen to his music anymore if he wasn't worshiping God.I've been a Santana fan since I was 15, I'm 34 now and still listen to Santana.I love the music, it has left a positive impact on me, but there are some things I bring into question about Carlos's beliefs.Some people in his fan base new-agers or mystics have said he's got religion and are turned off.Christians think he's paganistic and doesn't practice true Christianity.But in any event there are a plethora of people, Christian, buddists, hindu, atheists, new-agers mystics that listen to Carlos's music.For me personaly I'm in limbo about listening to Santana because of the influence of sound resonance vibration and Sound of Collective Consciousness socc.From what I've heard from interviews and articles I've read Carlos believes angel's and demons "spirits" are the same energy, and he calls out the spirits.I surely don't want to make any enemies here with Carlos or anyone here.But I question myself about how the music influences me, and changes my molecular structure.I would encourage feedback from people and I will keep an open mind toward these issues.I hope I'm not stepping in hot water here.I like Carlos I think he's a good man.

Andrew so what did you say.

Comment by Andrew McDowell on October 25, 2013 at 6:22pm

To my embarrassment Carlos Santana blocked me from his facebook page because of my religious beliefs, and some comments I made on his posts.Why can't I use free expression concerning what I believe, and be able to share at my discretion but because I might offend someone who doesn't share my faith?Even carlos was demeaned for being preachy at times.Carlos I love you and your faith in humanity and your the hope you carry for the betterment of good for the people and the world.You are an inspiration and a miracle from God.I apologize for any content that may have been interpreted as negative or considered in the form of religiosity.We are all here to learn and grow as human beings.And all I wanted to convey is for people to seek the truth in all things.Thank you, sincerely -Andrew
