Be the change you want in the world. - Ghandi
Focus on the change that you want, focus on what you want in the music that you are producing, and remember that all music comes from the fact that there is silence. We have love because there is hate, we see them as different but in fact they are the same thing but just different aspects, different polarities.
Day and night are both parts of the day; this brings us to the ridiculousness of continued economic growth as this is not natural. The politicians need to get to the basics of the nature of things and make sure that we start to flow with the way that is more holistic.
There will be periods of growth and periods of decline and if we are aware of these things then all the better, however the political system is not set up for this, what it is set up for is the few possessing the most with the many possessing the little; this is unsustainable and in time will change.
Over the last few years there has been a recurring theme of the rich feathering their nests at the expense of the others and this is not going unnoticed with movements like the ‘Occupy Movement’. Again this is not new and there has to be poverty in the world just for the reasons that I have outlined above but there has to be change and balance not stagnation.
We are entering a new phase of change and it can be the most creative time for the arts, think back to the decades of the 60’s and 70’s and of the way that music developed in those times of unrest.
Best that we work this out in the arts!
