All From the Same Tree

Just want to share this quote w/ every­one. I found it just brows­ing a minute ago…

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the moun­tain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

Should we all con­fess our sins to one another we would all laugh at one another for our lack of originality.
Should we all reveal our virtues we would also laugh for the same cause.

— Khalil Gibran 

Interesting Quotes

I was just brows­ing the net, and found this one…

When man sac­ri­fices the Love of Power for the Power of Love there will be Peace on Earth.

Then… my epiphany for the month…

Did you know… O is the vowel that sep­a­rates I and U.1 With 3 of ‘em we can say IOU, and derive I(heart)U; then ILOVEUILOVEYOU.

Its weird how the two derives into being indebt with another person.

  1. Alpha­bet­i­cal order: A, E, I, O, U. []

Epiphany

Its been a loooooooong while since I’ve writ­ten a “blog”. A thought that just had to come out of my mind with all the things that have been going on… work, friends, fam­ily, life, etc etc. I know that some­times we all just need to have some good music to groove to, and/or lis­ten to. But I guess, its really just a sub­lim­i­nal thought process that never rises to the top of our heads, being con­sis­tently cov­ered by “will this shit move me”/“this beat knocks hard”/etc-thoughts.

So what the hell am I talk­ing about??? Its hard to explain but easy to think about. I guess it is what it is, our indi­vid­ual lives are our unfin­ished sound­tracks. Con­sis­tently being writ­ten, re-arranged, col­lab­o­rated by dif­fer­ent artists (ele­ments). Break­ing bar­ri­ers of cer­tain gen­res: some­times Funk, some­times R&B, Gospel (on Sun­days), Gangsta Rap (when were mad), yadda yadda yadda. Its music that is not heard but expe­ri­enced by listeners—your friends and fam­ily, and those six degrees apart. It is inter­twined in a cir­cu­lar groove that is being played 24/7 by an omnipo­tent entity and/or force.

But what exactly is this force? I don’t know, but I do have an idea—maybe its each and one of us. Our friends and fam­ily who keeps us going, and tells us to “keep writ­ing those great lyrics, keep liv­ing on that won­der­ful beat and keep striv­ing to hit that hard-to-reach note”.

From my mind to yours, …TGIF and thanks for “tun­ing in” to my beat.
