Reflection for today…Unforgettable -Jim Morrison

15 May

“I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star.

Everyone stops, points up and gasps “Oh look at that!”

Then- whoosh, and I’m gone…

and they’ll never see anything like it ever again…

and they won’t be able to forget me- ever.

―Jim Morrison

verdillac:” It hurts to set you free, but you’ll never follow me, the end of laughter and soft lies, the end of nights we tried to die, THIS IS THE END! ”

Jim Morrison’s Grave in the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
It is a pilgrimage for Jim Morrison admirers to visit his grave and pay their respects…

James Douglas Morrison also known as Jim Morrison was a free spirit, poet, artist, writer and musician.

He is one of those artists whose art has a timeless impact on humanity.

Jim was a lover of literature, philosophy, music, poetry, art, drama, shamanism, independent and critical thinking, etcetera.

He had many intellectual, creative and artistic interests.

Later in his life he was developing a stronger affinity for the blues and poetry.

I would have loved to see how Jim would have evolved as an artist and human being.

For now his admirers can read and listen to his work- the creative gifts he left us.

Jim will never be forgotten…

He is unforgettable.

Moby Reflects…

In this short clip, Moby reflects on the goal of creativity.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xitia8di4n4

He heard David Lynch say:

Creativity in and of itself is a beautiful thing.”

That one sentence resonated so much with Moby that it inspired him to refine his artistic focus.

Moby reflected on the preciousness of life and decided that he wants to remember making beautiful art and music on his death-bed.

His new focus is self-expression and to make beautiful art that will affect people.

In my opinion, Moby has always made beautiful emotive music that has touched people’s souls.

I have been a fan of his music for many years and am grateful that he is continuing on his artistic path.

What Moby said made me reflect on the legacy that I want to leave behind.

{Thinking of what you want to remember on your death-bed really puts life into crystal clear focus}.

I think that the relationships, friendships and interactions with people is what we leave behind.

{Of course if you are an artist you will leave behind your art as well}.

Whenever we gave the gift of our spiritual presence, love, compassion and kindness is hopefully what people will remember.

*

This clip also made me realize again how interconnected we really are.

{Buddhism and many spiritual paths speak about the interconnection of sentient beings}.

You never know how your words or actions will affect someone.

{I try to be really mindful about this}.

Our words and actions are so powerful that they have ripple effects.

Why not try to give the best of yourself to others?

{I know that it is easier said than done but we can still try our best to give our best}.
