#BeyondHappy & willing to fail release of my EP (as I could not possibly be happier even to re-record, release EP & submit to Grammys via crowd funding www.pledgemusic.com/projects/dilee ) due to misunderstandings. Pledge Music is NOT like others in that they do NOT charge any credit card til I reach 100% then they only release partial funds until all merchandise is shipped and received protecting the consumer.
Thought all crowd funding was this way but that is not the case. Kickstarter is only other crowd funding platform that I am aware of in addition to Pledge Music that protects the consumer.
So whether or not enough of my friends stand by me or not I will still slowly release music to help inspire and heal as well as support IRS verified charities such as www.CircleofHopeInc.org (concert Aug 16th & 10% over target goes to them with balance of overage for more songs or live concert in top grossing city) and continue supporting products like www.Rebbltonic.com (drink pictured here) proceeds go to help prevent human trafficking.
Thank you pledging friends in putting your credit card on hold to buy my EP! You are forever in my heart brothers & sisters regardless of whether we reach 100% funding …where if we fall short no money exchanged nor are products sold. If pledged with PayPal and goal is not reached, that is where refund occurs. I’ve got your back to whatever capacity I am able to now and in the future. If we don’t make our goal, EP will not released, no money would have been exchanged but all pledgers will still receive a copy of my spoken word album to be released Aug-Sept 2014 ♡ ♡ ♡
A total blast of fun! Thank you Lou for interviewing me and always paying it forward with your rockin radio show! http://www.ucwmagazine.com/dilee.html
Asked today how it feels in this earth suit (experiences). Cool question. I answered, “It feels lighter and happier identifying myself as my attention”…the essence of consciousness type thing or feeling which stems in my belief of #OneLove (One Creator) #OnePeople #OneEssence. It takes courage to maintain unity for we have to let go of our ego; Bringing down the walls and lifting our eye to see ourselves in each other, we feel we are One.
We are only competing with our self & judging-fear-arguing only limits our contentment ~ joy ~ abundance #embraceLOVE
Whenever a rough patch comes, clouds cover the sun. When I feel I need to overcome negativity around me, peace is in stillness. Balance of reflection and engaging in a quite cheerful hobby or sometimes a loud past-time so stillness is possible later whether soaking in the negative ions in nature, meditating in solitude or yoga pose under the sun and trees.
Heavens! I love skydiving! It’s an experience of a lifetime and can’t be adequately described in words but my futile attempt at a description: “it is devouring fear feeling exhilaratingly spiritual.”

It was nice to talk to LL Cool J again at the IHADLA.org annual charity event. I even asked and said I hope he can make it to TheGRAMMYs on Capitol Hill Apr 3!
Our music has already touched many people in ways I didn’t think was possible. Each of us can make a difference and to me music can bring about magic ~ something that was always there but only discovered when a song touches our minds & hearts, penetrating our soul.

Rather than a vanity paycheck it feels better to give something of far more value than entertainment or money. Sometimes gifts can be priceless like that of love which is everything, connection, inspiration, devotion, attention, purpose… Winston Churchill says, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
My thought is we know it’s love rather than merely attachment or infatuation when we literally would do anything for someone and when there is an issue, we find whatever fault we may be responsible for, no matter how small. Gandhi says it so right on, “Love never claims, it ever gives. Love ever suffers, never resents, never revenges itself.”
