The thing that hits me most is that we see so much poverty and inequality effecting the helpless,{children,elders} and we sing about it and call it a wrap. Amazing pr but it does nothing to resolve the issue at hand. Once we set the table, we must act. Use your energy and creativity to keep the light on the issues. Give something so much heat that folks must address something beyond the Grammy’s. I call it Harmonics in action. Vibrations force response. The law of physics and spiritual mathematics prove this. Use your skills and paint on a canvas,. Let’s do something beyond bowing and scraping and pointing to the other guy. It’s a fair trade off for our gifts.FlamingosFlamingos

Don’t be stuck in the mode of trying to fit somebody’s paradigm. You may think you should aim to be like the next person but, you don’t. Clearly define what your goal is. Is it to be good? or famous? If it’s the fame then you need to see a shrink. Fame is an illusion. It’s the carrot dangling before the horse. It’s purely subjective. It’s not the end for everyone. However, you can control yourself and your qualities better than anyone else.

Have respect for your craft, be in love with the process. Keep in mind it’s the journey more than the destination that reflects you. If others feel you’re just average, nine times out of ten they live in their own mediocre realm. Try not to judge others based on some unrealistic scale. A scale created by the media or maybe relatives and friends. Do what you do. I believe the pressure comes when someone says “my child is gonna be a star”. Where have we heard that before?

I honestly believe the smallest of life still have a purpose. So if you have a like, love, passion or obsession, give it a go because it’s yours. DH
