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}.

Reflection for today…Faith In One’s Spiritual Path -Paulo Coelho

11 Apr

“In order to have faith in his own path,

he does not need to prove that someone else’s path is wrong.”
Paulo Coelho

Warrior of the Light

I love how inclusive “no way as the way” is.

“…My mind is a Buddhist temple.

The truth is simple.

I try to be principled.

Walking with a warrior’s spirit.

Aint’ nothing like learning from first hand life experience.

I’m a realist.

That’s all I deal with.

Respecting truth, that’s all I build with.

A child of the universe.

My religion is life and it’s just as valid.

I strive for balance…”

Reflection for today…How Art Evolves Consciousness -Alex Grey

5 Apr

“Art is an echo of the creative force that birthed the galaxies.

Creativity is a way that the cosmos evolves and communicates with itself.

The great uplifting of humanity beyond its self destruction is the redemptive mission of art.”

-Alex Grey

Reflection for today…Awakening Compassion -Pema Chödrön

9 Jan

Learning how to be kind to ourselves is important.

When we look into our own hearts and begin to discover what is confused and what is brilliant, what is bitter and what is sweet, it isn’t just ourselves that we’re discovering.

We’re discovering the universe.

When we discover the buddha that we are, we realize that everything and everyone is Buddha.

We discover that everything is awake, and everyone is awake.

Everything and everyone is precious and whole and good. When we regard thoughts and emotions with humor and openness, that’s how we perceive the universe.”

Pema Chödrön

Reflection for today…Examine Your Path -Carlos Castaneda

31 Jul
“A path is only a path,
 and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you. 
Look at every path closely and deliberately. 
Try it as many times as you think necessary.
 Then ask yourself alone, one question. 
Does this path have a heart? 
If it does, the path is good;
 if it doesn’t, it is of no use.”
n

Peace & Namaste…
