Fear is Afraid of This
(A lyric from “Floating Angels” off The Invisible Plan.)
I remember writing this phrase down sometime when I was in NYC summer 2001. What is the worst fear and how do you make it stop. And I thought, “Make fear afraid that it won’t have power anymore.” I had a visual of that melting witch chick in The Wizard of Oz.
Afraid of failure, afraid of being alone, afraid of the dark, afraid of not having love, afraid of cilantro, afraid, afraid, yippity whathaveyou.
The quote “Worry [fear] is using your imagination for something you DON’T want to happen” I’ve said to myself many times. I’d like to imagine better things. Fear is a teacher. Not an existence.
You could think of continual fear as “unsustainable emotion.” It deters growth. Recycle it as fuel for success. Eco-emotional.
“Fear is afraid of This, Don’t be afraid of This.”
This is part of The Invisible Plan.
The Dark Side of a Revolution
…is the unconscious shadow so stifled, seething, bubbling underneath, that it knows only one thing: Destruction. The lack of control to ensuing chaos and the desperate longing for control, can lead to those unleashing the destruction feeling like if anyone is going to destroy them, it will not be at the hands of the oppressor–but by their own.
All other means attempted—a calm reasoning, a heated debate, a patience and a tolerance that has been worn down by those more powerful who unfortunately are cloaked in their anorexic compassion, selfish reasoning…ultimate greed.
Once man has been pushed to his limit, rational thinking gets thrown out the window and cast into the fire. “You cannot destroy me, I will not let you. Because I am the only one who should have this power.” (Shooting the hostage, if you will.)
The Light Side of a Revolution
…is the power of Mind, The power of consciousness. In order to change lives, to break cycles, you have to change Minds. If Courage is a bullet, then Love and Compassion are a nuclear bomb. If violence begets violence, then the same is true for Knowledge, Love and Compassion.
Then we rebuild.
“Then the floating angels come, with their fire and their guns…”
In the studio listening part of “Floating Angels” chorus and about to go in to sing sweet and loud.
Unexpectedly, as an intro to one of our songs, we recorded me talking about a near death out of body experience i had.
More to come.
