Ruach News: Take heart! 29/07/16

IMAG0348

Love & Unity people, I hope we have all had a positive & progressive week, This has been one of those inspiring yet heavy weeks for me personally, I recently learned that my great family friend, brother Julius Mutunga passed away this week. This came too sudden for the family, As this guy was a sent angel to us, This is one of those people of whom very few if not none could walk in his shoes. One strong individual!, Just like my father was, whom also has transcended. I remember me & Julius always talked about recording an album together, But the opportunity never came to pass. So I suppose we will Jam Again, But in another realm of existence, the higher entities. We love Julius, Rest in Power brother!, (on the picture Julius is on the electric guitar, & that’s Lil Vonj smiling on the bass)

My experiences in life have been extreme, especially for someone still in his 20s, we have witnessed & experienced the very WORST & the very BEST of the things in life, But this means nothing If one is not learning from experience, & through this  we come to understand our purpose in life, There are reasons why we are exposed to certain experiences. For me I realize that In actual fact I am in a privileged state, Because now I am able to share my experiences to others, providing comfort, motivation,  &  elevation to the people who are going through certain situations.

I try to use music as my MAIN vehicle to disseminate resolutions to people, I always have, & I will always will.

So with Spirit we remain working against the grain 24/7 Literally, because we also note down our dreams, “one of the greatest key parts in our life experience”.

Take heart people!.

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 13 “Nothing lasts Forever”

             These are all expressions that came through my heart. I have written  these       pieces to fit in within a musical format. What you read here has already been musically recorded, I hope you enjoy these messages family. Love; Vonj.                                

                                               Nothing lasts forever                                              

I reminisce when I was a child

mamma pushed my swing high towards the sky

I want to see my face behind the shinning light

Country side where we lived

back then not a care in the world

I couldn’t wait for the next day

So I could play all day

Mantra

Nothing Lasts forever (x2)

Second part

friend of mine lets plant this seed

I want to watch my garden grow so let the rain, let it pour

this was a time of innocence before the wind brought the storm

Hotel room, years of strife

It felt like forever to endeavour change

Daddy I’ll see you soon good bye

Mantra

Nothing lasts forever (x2)

Extent

Look forward for tomorrow

you never know what is around the corner

Look forward for tomorrow

All your troubles will be over 

Third part

I turned ten today my dream came true

Everyone I care about is here

So lets celebrate, celebrate

But a day done gone and the dream is all over

I got to start another life, in a foreign land

everywhere in the world is the same,

I need to find another way to end this pain

but I know one day I will be free at last 

Repeating “Mantra” followed by“Extent”

Where Does Music Come From?

What separates music from many other entities is that it can only exist through heart’s desire, there’s no other way true music can become existent but through a musicians “consciousness”, the way of receiving music can’t be altered or changed, why change a perfect way?, New music cannot be thought of, the mind simply moulds or arranges what your spirit brings up to surface. The way for music to be vacant first is to understand that no man can create music, one must come off of the ego mentality and come to know that music simply comes through the musician and not from, our power comes when we express it through our instrument with love. if music is from the heart then it will carry no impurity, this would mean that music can’t be misused to fulfil any self-threatening intention, as the heart will never contradict itself, Negative intention surely arises from the delusions of one’s thoughts for it is only in one’s “knowing” that springs truth.

I believe the answer to creating inspirational music is to find quietness within,  I don’t need to abuse my body to free my mind.

I have never induced any drugs apart from the odd headache tablet if that, never even smoked a cigarette, however it so happens that all my favourite musicians have used drugs at some point in their lives, and maybe were likely to have been under the influence of drugs while composing some of my favourite music. Scientists say most drugs stimulate a nerve that intern would suppress certain faculties of the brain while releasing others, which may cause one’s brain to open up more on their imagination which can sometimes be translated into notions of creativity. I have a thesis that some people have a deficiency in freeing creativity NATURALLY and even when they have a new idea they don’t have the confidence to act on it without taking a substance to somehow loosen them up (drugs/alcohol/marijuana/).To me this translates as an issue that is needed to be dealt with, the sad thing is in this case 9 times out of 10 its the musician that is put under so much pressure by the industry and so for a form of escapism they get into drugs, we must never ignore this and this is why those same favourite artists of mine have never lived a long and healthy life.

and by this we have fallen short out of reaching perfection? I can’t help but wonder that maybe if these great artists were helped to overcome their problems and lived healthier and longer lives and transcended above the destructive ways of the world then maybe they might have got to the state of perfection within what they do.

and so I let go of the world, this is how I choose to live my life. And I hope that one day someone will look back at the history books and read a different story about a musician, a story of a musician who had control of his body and intellect and dint need to lose touch with reality through man-made substances to provide him inspiration for his works.

Material substance should never have to interfere or be the far most intention to the creation of music, surely the purest music will not come when the mind is geared in the wrong place.

So I encourage other musicians to get in touch with their inner selves and find true music, one doesn’t need to search too hard to gain music, but the only way a musician can penetrate to inspire someone else is for him or her to create space within his or her mind.

Perhaps we should now ask “Where does your Spirit come from?….
