Hello my dear brother or sister,
The music and the clip is beautiful. I cannot express what I felt listening it....
I already gave an answer to the question about music. Please find it. If you cannot find it, please tell me and I shall answer again.
my friend. I'm glad you liked it! It sounds like you got out of it exactly what I intentionally attempted to put into it -
feelings that can't be expressed! For what is music but the elegant language of the very fabric of our cosmos? And if music doesn't inspire you in a
way that nothing else can, then it's really just noise!
I didn't catch your answer on music, but I don't need to. I only asked out of curiosity. I already know what music is to me. Music is the language
of the universe and as such, it's impossible to mistranslate. You hear what you hear, and you feel what you feel, and those moments are all true. The
same song can make you happy that yesterday made you sad, and both experiences are valid; yet the song remains the same! And such is the nature of
Truth (and Love, which is [arguably] the same thing ultimately!)
I am so deeply and profoundly grateful for music's role in Creation and my relationship with its energy. Honestly, if someone's reading this who
maybe doesn't fully appreciate music's place in their daily life - you're missing out! Music is such
a powerful creative tool, both for
self-expression & for inspiration/motivation in most (if not all) areas of glorious life!
And I am now & forever most grateful that I can choose to voluntarily enter a state of gratefulness whenever I decide to feel grateful at all in the
How great is that?
What more can one desire out of life than the ability to express oneself amongst the creative expressions of others? We live in a forest of love! But
sometimes you've gotta enter the caves of fear & limitation to know what that means. And so god bless the caves & their dwellers! Without ye brave
souls, drenched in negativity, offering your perspectives... how could we know that our path is true? To understand the purpose of suffering is to
transcend it. But true understanding & subjective understanding are two very, very different (and incompatible) things!
For what it's worth: I give my unconditional love to you, reader, whatever you've done. You deserve to be! But the catch is: so does everything
else! So learn to let go & let be, and all these answers you crave will come to you. People like BrotherOfSorrow aren't special. They're just what
they are. All you must do is decide how it is you feel in relation to him. Do you agree with him? Do you disagree with him? Do you respect him? Do you
disrespect him? Do you love him, because you can? Or do you hate him because you want to?
Yet the most important question you must ask yourself is "and in light of these observations, why
do I feel this way?"
Answer that question, and you'll have all the wisdom you could ever get from this thread in one dose
That's what all this crap about
"resonating" means. If you feel good things when presented with BrotherOfSorrow's words of wisdom (or of course the perceived lack thereof), then
you best pay close attention to his words & your inner self's awareness/insights, because you're meant to be here for some reason. And it might have
nothing to do with answering questions - sometimes it's to uncover more questions!
If you feel animosity towards the OP, then clearly this information is not
resonating with you. Which, of course, doesn't mean that he's
wrong, or that you're wrong - it simply means that you have invested your existential beliefs into alternative truths. And such is your
The secret no one ever tells you is this... you're both right!
I believe that Creation is glamorously glorious & infinitely incredible & constantly caring & boundlessly... boundless. And so that's the truth that
But you see, once I believed that Creation was chaotically confusing, and infinitely insignificant, and morbidly meaningless and a
giant soup of brutal suffering & terrible experiences. And that was the truth that I experienced, for many years (and a belief I battle with even
today because it was so deeply engraved into my consciousness during my early years).
I leave it to you to decide which version of me was the correct one. Because whichever answer you decide, is the truth. Wrap your mind around
, and you've wrapped your mind around life. And then you'll find yourself at the helm of your life instead of desperately clutching at
its tail. The boat's sailing regardless of where you choose to sit or how much effort you put into avoiding the rocks! So take care in that ocean of
life. It's f#cking rough sometimes - and that's the truth!
