Daily Meditation: A Wonderful Kind Of Day

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a rendition of the theme song from children's show 'Arthur', performed by contemporary hip hop artist Chance the Rapper. As a Chicago-based rapper who frequently uses his art to comment on social issues, Chance's 'Arthur' cover is a moving tribute to childhood, innocence and the hopeful worldview we can hold on to even when we're all grown up.

The original:

Arthur Theme Song by Ziggy Marley

Everyday when you're walking Annotatedown the street,
Everybody that you meet
Has an original point of view

And I say HEY! what a wonderful kind of day.
Where you can learn to work and play
And get along with each other

You got to listen to your heart
Listen to the beat
Listen to the rhythm, the rhythm of the street
Open up your eyes, open up your ears
Get together and make things better by working together
It's a simple message and it comes from the heart
Believe in youself (echo: believe in yourself)
Well thats the place to start (to start)

And I say HEY! what a wonderful kind of day
Where you learn to work and play
And get along with each other
