Landslide

Revised by Jeff Divine

(Original song by Fleetwood Mac)

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
‘Til the landslide brought me down

Oh, Father in my mind, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changin’ ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Mmm

Well, I’m not afraid of changin’
‘Cause I’ve built my life around You
Time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m gettin’ older, too

Well, I’m not afraid of changin’
‘Cause I’ve built my life around You
Time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m gettin’ older, too
I’m gettin’ older, too

Ah, take my love, take it down
Oh, climb a mountain and turn around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide will bring it down
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide will bring it down
Oh, the landslide will bring it down

Landslide – Meaning

Revised by Jeff Divine

(Original song by Fleetwood Mac)

Landslide is originally a song written by Stevie Nicks about betrayal, but with a few minor changes we can dramatically alter the song’s meaning to being God’s original Vision for this song.  Landslide becomes a song about coming to Earth from Heaven and navigating a physical reality with God.  

I took my love, I took it down (this is the landslide, this is bringing your love from Heaven to Earth)
Climbed a mountain and I turned around (Now that I’m on Earth, I took upon myself the monumental task of raising my vibration back to Heaven)
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills (When I finally arrived at Heaven on Earth, I saw myself reflected back to me, a Heavenly and Divine version of myself.)
‘Til the landslide brought me down (And I take that Divine image that I discovered through the vibrational journey of Ascension and bring it back to me down to Earth again, so creating a cycle of Ascension and investment.  The landslide.)

Oh, Father in my mind, what is love? (Speaking now to God, wondering what is the meaning of love on Earth?  The innocence of being a child of God on Earth, something we can all relate to.)
Can the child within my heart rise above? (Even though there are huge challenges on Earth, will my innocence be enough to conquer them?)
Can I sail through the changin’ ocean tides? (Will I be able to navigate life on Earth?  It is so different than what I’m used to.)
Can I handle the seasons of my life? (A third line about this is no longer about the question any longer, but about bringing oneself close into safety with one’s parent; Mother-Father God.)
Mmm

Well, I’m not afraid of changin’
‘Cause I’ve built my life around You (Here we see one of only two alterations to the song.  Instead of being afraid of changing, I have fixed it to not being afraid of changing.  Building your life around God means there is nothing to fear and so this part of the song becomes about feeling strong, which makes perfect sense following the above line.  The writer asks to be closer to God in the line above, and the only natural line to follow is this one, talking about how stable she feels having built her life around God.)
Time makes you bolder (now she describes how she’s feeling bolder and stronger as time goes on, or another way to say this is; as the procession of life unfolds.)
Even children get older (A beautiful visual of the miraculous process of growing up.  So simple and meaningful for us all, especially coming originally from a female author who may have, or may one day give birth to a child.  This is also a metaphor for the evolution of the inner child in its growing up.)
And I’m gettin’ older, too (taking this metaphor and extrapolating upon it here)

Well, I’m not afraid of changin’ (The repetition of this line ingrains it all further, deepening its meaning and grounding it.)
‘Cause I’ve built my life around You
Time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m gettin’ older, too
I’m gettin’ older, too

Ah, take my love, take it down (Now we return to the beginning, but with a whole new understanding, ease, and flow.)
Oh, climb a mountain and turn around (reminiscing now about the journey)
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills (extending wisdom)
Well, the landslide will bring it down (lending you knowledge)
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills (echoing off now into eternity)
Well, the landslide will bring it down (echo)
Oh, the landslide will bring it down (echo)

This conclusion to the song evokes a sense of timelessness and permanence about this process and about the writer’s place in it.  It leaves us feeling close to the songwriter and artists who perform this song, bringing them forever into a special place in our hearts and deepening that relationship and connection every time we listen to, hum, sing, or think about this song.  It can echo eternally in our hearts bringing us peace and reminding us of the ease of life and the security of building our own lives around God.
