and if you can't change the world, you can at least enjoy your life!
Because of some recent posts or statements I've made and gigs that I've had, I'd like to tell you a little more about my spiritual philosophy and beliefs. After all, if you're going to invest time in listening to my music, you may as well have some idea about it!
Those who know me well know that I've been involved, both musically and personally, with three "Unity" churches over the past 13 years. I won't bore you with the details of the Unity belief system (although you can see them if you go to their main website), but I will say it's based mostly upon the Judeo/Christian Bible and Jesus Christ's teachings. But in a nutshell, let's just say that it's a lot more open than Catholicism, and a little more directed than Unitarianism. What I want you (the reader) to know is that I believe God is in everything and in everyone, even if they're not showing it!! (lol) And because of this, we each have access to "Spirit," or "The Unseen Power," or "The Force," or however you prefer to define It. All we have to do is be open and receptive to It, and be willing to use It for good. I also believe that each of us has a personal "contract," if you will, with God to live his/her purpose here on this planet while he/she is in this particular "skin suit," as some call it. And it's up to each of us to figure out what that purpose is and follow it.
Well, now you have a good idea of where I'm coming from and what's behind most of the messages in my music. Of course, I don't require that you agree with my philosophy and spiritual beliefs to listen to the music I create What I care about most is that the music I create helps you somehow, some way . . . I'm not picky about the "why's" and "wherefore's!" ;)
"Take It Easy," and have a good day and a most excellent life!
