Most of my music is a nostalgic look back at my life, past relationships and old desires left by the wayside. They are journal entries frozen in time. You are not the same person you were 5 years ago, 2 months ago and even yesterday. Some people hold other people accountable for their past. They want you to stay the same so they feel secure. We are all forever changing, wandering beings of light, we are all looking for our own path and piece of earth we feel most comfortable in. Nostalgia plays a big role in my writing and when i look within myself i realise everything i desire is already inside me. That to scale the earth looking for the rest of me, through environments or mind altering substances, the quest for fame, adulation etc. was not what i need to do and is a superficial path that doesn’t allow you to flow freely. Seeking favour is degrading and will lead you astray.
Creating Music that comes from what seems like out of nowhere makes me realise that peace, success, happiness, music, rhythm, abundance, anything and everything you need isn’t something you stumble on, it’s not something you find, it’s not material and you don’t learn it throughout your journey, it’s already within you. As our bodies get old, our soul do not, our soul constantly moves like the tide, our souls desires or purpose are considered our “dreams” and are always evolving with us, as we change throughout our lives, we never fade away we just transition into a new state of consciousness. We flicker in and out of existence at the speed of light, (300,000 kms per second). Learn how to die here on earth first, let go, be free, give away your possessions that clutter your space. Maybe even give a valued possession away if you’re ready for that. Our greatness is in the small things. Cherish you and you will cherish me. What if all our hearts beat in time, and everything that exists makes up the perfect rhythm that beats the perfect beat and allows life to keep flowing? All life is effortless and this is how we are meant to exist just like the force of energy that utilises the vein to help carry the blood to the perfect part of your body to keep you healthy and vibrant, and when we experience dis-ease from an imbalance of contrast, the power of healing is within you eternally, we are all apart of the same intelligence that exists within us and without us.
I wrote this above like automatic writing, i know this is my spirit talking to me but my human aspect now has to but in as it constantly does and the ego loves that. I want to tell you that I struggle with this notion everyday, ego vs true self, But to struggle with it goes against the whole principal. To have the awareness but still easily forget it is quite common and it’s one thing to be preaching it and meditating on it, it’s another putting it all into practise and that takes work and constant discipline. I try so hard to be a good human but it’s not about trying it’s about letting it flow naturally… and every now and then challenges arrive where i find myself getting caught up in the day to day struggles of the lower vibrational issues that can come my way without anticipating them, and this happens everyday to everyone. It’s unfortunate but i guess that is what balances us and makes our human element so interesting. We make meaning out of everything and It’s hard to remember that we are all eternal having an experience when you see something horrific in the newspaper or on television (this is why i don’t read the news or watch tele).
Music for me brings the best part of the past back to life, as if it were time travel and it is. Memories are photons of light in the brain. They are apart of your soul. By having a memory, you summon light. You can not physically hold it in your hand but you know it’s there and it’s real to you, by the images that flash in your mind. I use this memory to conjure the feeling and then the audience will hopefully have the same if not similar experience that i was having in translating the song whilst calling on the experience of the past and bringing the song out of the un-manifest in the first place, obviously the past does not exist but the feeling will always remain and be available to access and the more and more you conjure this emotion for others, the more and more it expands within the collective consciousness. That is why we as artists/musicians have to create high vibrational art to fill the world with inspiration, freedom, passion etc.. to combat the lower vibrational turbulence of the world.
