Stay Still in Silence, Elevate your Essence

In reflection upon my previous posts I would like to first thank each and every one of you whom have been supporting my writings and keeping up to date with the content. I appreciate and take to heart every comment written on this website, and I hope that with each blog I can continue to keep you “the reader” feeling refreshed through each added content.

My message is simple, Love and unity, and as I take you through my journey of self discovery I would like to continue to show and prove how this philosophy can help elevate each one of us no matter our position in life. The more we love and unify the greater we will become as a people, and also the closer we will get to the state of true mastery, I almost stumbled and said “the state of perfection”, however I now see perfection as being like a mirage of the garden of Eden in the middle of a desert, We die each time we think we are perfect, like how one in the middle of the burning desert would be dying of thirst and alluded to think he found a river stream and as he gets close and bows down to sip the water reality suddenly strikes him and he finds himself kissing dry sand. A true masters destination doesn’t lie upon satisfaction, but toward elevation. and elevation comes through knowing one’s self.

It is innate to every man and woman to have the need to grow, And it is through this that we can perceive awareness of what is right and what is wrong in all degrees, However We have been painfully mislead out of ourselves through the influence of society. There was a time when family values where strong and paramount, And wisdom was handed down to the young making it harder for young minds to be destructed by confusion and easier for them to pertain to paths of truth and righteousness. Now we have come to lose what was so very natural to us and adopted lower vibrational ways of thinking, With very little knowledge and understanding we now show pride, ego, arrogance which all equates to ignorance.

Many of us need a lesson in humility. Through my experience I have known some of the most prideful and egotistic individuals you can ever come across in life, I can attest to the facts that their attitude brought them nothing but pain and strife. So in the line of humble individuals I stand firmly!, I realise that even when one becomes tired of learning (having the want to settle in a comfortable place in your mind), We must push ourselves to turn another leaf and witness yet another chapter in the book of our life.

As we begin to look into ourselves we will come to find that we need to experience as much as we can along our journey, however sometimes an experience doesn’t have to be first hand, if we subscribe to the gift of discernment we can avoid some rough roads but yet in keeping the knowledge that those rough roads did exist. You will start noticing that your patterns of life will positively improve according to the depth of your discernment. through this we have the ability to look into our lives just like how one can look into a map, you can then study your route and know what turns are irrelevant, what turns will get you lost, or what turns are right and exact for the growth of your life. if you find yourself then you will discover a wealth of information coming to you in a form of revelation.

But how can we find ourselves in this day and age? they are a few existing ways but one of the key ways is through “Silence”, this has become nearly obsolete in our day and age, Even when we go to bed we fall asleep with our headphones blasting away, and when we think we are in silence we are still thinking, Thus we have become unable to listen to the guidance of our spirit. one analogy of this can be explained when we are in conversation with an individual and someone is trying to tell you an important message that will help you but at that time either our brain drifts off to another planet or while the person is talking we are not digesting anything but only thinking about what we are going to say next, thus at the point we have lost a whole wealth of useful information and we continue living our lives carelessly and keep repeating the same mistakes.

In the name of growth and self discovery tone down your thoughts, attitudes and emotions and turn up your Silence, and let your spirit feed and reveal to you your next chapter in your journey.

Peace & Love family

Passion Vs. Obsession

In the spiral of life sometimes we can become lost within what we do, thus formulate negative habits while at the same time believing that what we are doing is correct according to the chosen path that we are on. We all want to be established within the works we choose to carry out, however we must come to the knowing of what becomes a passion and what becomes an obsession.

When I was in my teens and going on into my early 20s I knew who I was, a passionate musician, and I wanted to be the best at what I was doing, However it came to a point where I became obsessed within what I was doing but totally oblivious to my problem, I thought I was only strengthening my chances for success.

Everyday I would practice on my instrument for 6 hours straight, and if I had a day where I did not put in those exact hours or more I actually believed that this made me a worse musician than I was the previous day, This is when my passion turned into an obsession, and I discovered this the hard way after I fell down some steps and injured 3 figures, making it impossible to play any instrument for a term. Inside I felt broken, and I was not looking forward to getting back into playing as at the time I knew It would take me a long-term to get back to my previous standard of playing. Days came and went and I started to manoeuvre my thinking toward a more positive direction, focused on other things that would later on broaden my general understanding of music and life. When I started playing again I found that not only had I become more fluent within my style of playing but through inspiration I found new ways of approaching my instrument, setting me miles ahead creatively and technically from the state I was in before my injury.

I determined that If I was born with a passion and I wanted to improve on what I did, then it was not about how long I spent practising it, it was about how much I could control my passion. One must come to a holistic way of thinking if you really want to succeed in any particular practice. Balance is key for the growth of anyone’s potential, But Obsession kills the mind, and your gifting’s cannot be birthed with an absent mind. Obsession is also the father of urge, and it was my urge for repetition that prevented me from progressing, human beings are not created to repeat anything, this is one of the things that separates us from the animal kingdom, repetition as a term can very easily equate to stagnancy. We must be clear that there is a difference between having a need to do something and having the urge, when we need to do something we should find ways to answer it, However when we have the urge to do something we must question it.

This philosophy can apply to and indeed crossover all forms of day to day living, Can you miss your favourite TV program? can you choose at will when not to smoke? can you skip one saturday night out with your friends and spend it with your family?, Are you really in the driving seat?..

Detract your obsessions by thinking holistically and you will be able to successfully nurture your true passion.

Can you flip your record into your Future?

Love & Unity Family!, I made a new self discovery today of which I hope will positively inspire you all………………

It all started when I was going through all my old music records, I stumbled upon a cassette tape, Side A of the tape was labelled “Now” and side B was titled “Future”, All I knew is that the cassette label was hand written by me when I was 13, I knew I was 13 because this was when I was just starting to learn a cursive style of hand writing and it was a poor example at the time, although strangely enough to me I just could not remember the content within the cassette, this got me very curious, I just needed to know what was on this cassette, I put the tape aside while I continued going through all my other records, about 2 hours had gone ((I have a lot of records)) I picked up the “Now” & “Future” cassette tape, Keep in mind all along I had not sussed what was on it, so I started looking around the house for an old cassette Walkman that I was uncertain I still owned, after a 1 hour search amongst old dusty boxes I found the Walkman!  dint have any new spare battery’s to run the Walkman so I took a couple of “AA’s” off my TV remote control, slipped the tape on the side labelled  “Now”, plugged my headphones in and pushed the play button…

First I heard the nostalgic sound of the natural hiss one hears from playing a cassette, after about 45 seconds of hiss I was about to trash the tape but just before I hit stop I heard my voice, and It was 13 year old me speaking, and this is what I said….

“I know who I am”                                        (2 minute silence)
“But where am I going?”                                (3 minute silence)
“will I ever come to a stop?”                          (4 minute silence)
“or will I continuously keep growing?”

and that was it. I forwarded the tape, flipped it over to Side “B” nothing further…

Now just over “13 years later” I started to evaluate myself……

I still know myself, I am grounded within my roots, I know what I stand for…Note this was the only statement I made on the cassette, the rest were posing questions, the first question “But where am I going?”, although I cannot fully answer this question I can still look at the patterns of my life in hind site to see my potential future. Following down the other questions I now know that “I will never stop” going where my spirit needs to take me!, and I will always make sure “I am growing”, as a man, and in my works.

It shocked me that I had such a deep perception to reality when I was only 13, looking back I am glad that I was strong enough to overcome the ways of the world and avoid all the crooked influences that would surround me as a teenager growing into a young man.

This tape hit me in such a potent way that my focus now will be centred specifically toward helping the young, as I have truly come to understand that the younger you are the closer you really are to your spirit, I have always wondered why the young can adapt quicker to anything than a fully grown adult? now I know. This is why the young need not only to hear but to see positive things, because as quick as they can adapt to positivity in the same way they can also adopt to wrong ways. When I was a young boy I knew I was lucky because I was always surrounded by love, this is why I grew up to love and not to hate.

Today was the dawn of my self assessment phase, and just today without going into much detail I can say that I have learnt a lot about myself by simply hearing where my mind was 13 years ago.

So I would suggest to all people in all ages to choose the cycle for self assessment, Dig into your spirit and ask yourself the right questions about your life. I would recommend you to record your voice (we have recording technology right within our fingertips), your recorded voice will hit you with a lot more impact 2-5-15-20 years down the line than any hand written document would. People asses your current attitude, assess the company you are frequently amongst, and the works and influences you produce, are you growing through every cycle? or are you still in stagnation?. This is all in the name of elevation.

Love & Unity family!

LIVING THE DREAM!

This Week I will be releasing a series of short films documenting my world of dreams….

Many of us overlook the dreams we have on a nightly basis, and at the very most we take our dreams to be mere figments of our imagination, what if there was more to dreams than we think?

Through my experience I can openly say that my dreams have acted as the leading source of inspiration within my life, even though I get inspired by the world around me through the one sense we have called “Touch”, I still see more substance coming through my dreams than I receive from the physical existence around me.

Those that vaguely take notice of their dreams may come to the conclusion that their dreams are stored memories of what has either occurred in their conscious thoughts or subconscious reality, However I find this subject of dreams most fascinating mainly because many of my dreams have ended up manifesting themselves into existence, and most of the time my dreams deal with subject matters no where close to my conscious train of thought nor concerning with my personal or immediate surroundings, for instance world events have come to pass after I dreamt about them, It is as if dreams set me up and prepare me for the good and the bad.

Even if our dreams were stored images of what we have already previously experienced we must still ask ourselves a few questions, why are our experiences being replayed through our dreams? can we view dreams as an aspect of our inner ability?, Are some people more gifted than others? Or do we all have equal potential if we all paid attention to our dreams?, Can we consciously affect our dreams?

Feel free to walk with me as I document my dreams, and let us see if I can connect these dots,  I will start to document and publish my dreams online from this week. My next album will be an extension of this subject.

Live your Dream. L.U. (love and unity)

A Universal Message (Speed up your Vibration)

Are you vibrating on a level where nothing or no one can bring you down?, if the answer is NO then let me give you some food for thought…

Did you know that achieving permanent enlightenment is very possible?, however sometimes we wrongly misinterpret the word enlightenment for “happiness in bliss”, With enlightenment comes awareness and if you are aware of the world around you then you will realize that happiness comes in seasons, just like how summer comes and goes we must appreciate what it brings and take advantage of this feeling, the concept of yin and yang could serve as an appropriate example, when you become enlightened you are essentially at the uttermost state of power, this is because now you can control emotion.

We must realize that the emotions we may define as being negative such as the feeling of, disappointment, sadness, sympathy, and bitterness, are all natural emotions that every human should embrace, but the key is to never alow these feelings to dominate our being, just like how we must control excitement, pleasure, and even love.

Are you in control of your life? We sometimes let people in our lives control our emotion in the name of love, but in this we need to know that the higher someone can lift you up? the lower that same person can bring you down!, but if you love thy self first then the detraction within ones nature will not be manipulated by another.

We should all find our element, and when we do, thoroughly bathe in it everyday like we should our physical bodies, Thus this is how you become a shining light and an inspiration to other people.

People…Be aware of the number one source that society uses to control you and slow down your vibration…This is “False Evidence Appearing Real”  Aka .F.E.A.R. So What do you fear? is it Death? Money?, if so then now ask yourself, What does society fear? it fears an Enlightenment being!,  because when you are elevated  to this  state of mind  death and money will appear as minuscule as grains of sand in a desert. for example coming from a males perspective here lies the reasons why most men in society fall, many people are either put in prison or die because…….”I will be a bad father If i can’t afford Christmas gifts for my children”…. “My woman will stop loving me if I can’t afford to shower her with gifts on valentine’s day”….” Repo man is going to come clear my home if I don’t commit to pay my debt on their clock”… ” I’m going to be forever lonely if I can’t afford to buy good things to impress people”.

But when you come to know yourself not only will you be over this false state of thinking,  trouble will not get to you and you will see setbacks as being setups for comebacks!,

I am a living example of this, I live each day according to how my spirit desires, I don’t depend on “The Man” and his clock, I will my needs into existence, and even though I am still trying to get to a place where I can reach out and help others more abundantly I still try to do as much as I can in my current position. if I can do this than so can you.

So enclosing, do not fear, Love yourself first, Speed up your Vibration and you will Unify with the Universe

Love & Unity to all

Mine your mind for a positive progression

A few thoughts just crossed my mind today but I shall try to keep this blog as short as I can and maybe elaborate on some points later..

Where are we headed Today as a people?

I pose this question because we can evidently see that mankind has always been in the search for “The New”, this is why we keep seeing significant changes within society, We can observe these changes through our Architecture, Fashion, Music, and Technology etc.. Now In this so-called 21st century the periods in between the changes are merging closer and closer together, this is because civilization now has the benefit of having a recorded back catalogue of past ideas, and now to the vantage point of business’s instead of having the need for inventing “the new” business’s can now simply go back into history and bring something old back and market it as something new.

We must come to recognize positive and negative change, and in this age of heavy consumerism it is clear that money dictates these recent periods of change, thus now the only new changes that exist have been within creating new cunning ways to deceive the people into spending more money, Thus now we are living in a “recycled age”, for example…how many films from the past are being remade today?, How much music from the past has been stolen and remixed for today?, how many cover acts exist?, How many sacred texts are being revised and pushed to us now?,  What has Stephen Hawking done with his life but represent old science theories?. We fall for this trickery everyday, and I would never protest if all this was in the name of improving what has already been done, instead we get dumbed down versions of the past, is there an agenda behind this? or is society past its time?

Ok, first, time is literally none existent to me, all we are doing with this theory of time  is counting revolution around the sun, Nothing changes in the world apart from people’s attitudes in reaction to their placed position in society, let us not be fooled to believe better technology means an evolution in intelligence, In the so called B.C. days people could see in High Definition just as we can today ha-ha..

(been meaning to keep this blog short)….So enclosing here are the facts…Money Is GOD and boy Ain’t it a DOG eat DOG world?!, Truth and originality is now being openly and purposely suppressed, keeping the masses from realizing their true potential, but nothing lasts forever, this corrupt system we live in is due to crash very soon, so now it is time to wake up, Inspiration lasts forever as it is not a thing so if we start to mine our minds and get in touch with our spirit then and only then can we come together to put the work in and witness a positive change in this world. I am trying to do my part.

Love & Unity To all

Do NOT keep your creativity to yourself!

Do NOT keep your creativity to yourself!

I believe that It is time for us to share creativity to each other, Did you know that all of us have a creative gift? though most of us are afraid to tap into this, Society today is making it difficult for us to tap into creativity, and for those who are already aware of their creative potential don’t know how to share it to others.

Creativity is something that is meant to be shared, there are too many individuals out there wondering why life is not good to them, well one of the reasons may be that you are aware of your gift and your not sharing it.

When you look at your past experiences you should be able to see patterns in your life..

Here is a little secret, why do you think people tend to be most generous with their creativity after a term of suffering? bad experiences are there to shock your mind into where you should be, and every so often we need bad experiences to reboot us back into the straight and narrow, sometimes we are so caught up in life’s destructions in that we loose focus of our vision and the whole meaning of our existence…but maybe…just maybe if we remained in the driving seat we would never have needed to go through misfortune, and personally the hardest points in my life were just after periods where I had been selfish within my creativity, or fell short of my creative potential, I then needed a reality check to put me back into where I should be.

When I say share your creativity this could mean something as simple as taking the initiative to call a friend just to talk or get your friend out for lunch as a treat, setting the opportunity to put a smile on someone’s face, Now if you can aspire to share your creativity to more than one individual in a larger way by tapping into your gift then you will receive rewards within your life and you will feel fulfilled, in other words be the best person you can be, and never fall short of your creative potential, after all I know that life is not about what you got its about what you can give.

Time should be looked at as a positive benefactor within ones creativity, The older one becomes the wiser one “should” be, as time gives you the privilege of looking in hind site to assess past experiences, the good and the bad, making it easier to be able to help others move forward richer in knowledge. don’t let time run out on you while you are able to elevate others with your creativity.

Simple

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?….

Respect Music

A Time will come one day that those who slander music will open their eyes and ears to the vibrations, and nothing will be heard. They will discover that without music their TVs, and Radio’s will be empty for those entertaining sounds that linger throughout will not be there,
 Their lives will be dull and bland, as they will never tap their feet or dance again,
when they go out to watch their sporting events with the rest of the multitudes they will never chant and sing songs of festivity and spirit again, On their holidays and celebratory periods they will never cheer merrily, for how do they cheer without song?

Without music the flags of all the countries will not be raised, for how can this be done without an anthem? Those people will search high and low for the sound of music; even try to go to the heart of all natures where the forest lies rich with greenery and the flowers bright with all their shades of beauty, but they will only discover the missing link of which without it makes the gardens of God ugly, for no birds will be singing!. The day music becomes extinct Joy and Gladness will perish unto everyone in existence, never doubt me when I say musicians make the world go round!

Please check out my new page on www.vonjproductions.com/my-vision-for-music/

This will give an insight on my vision of music
