When In Doubt, Listen To Man With Longer Beard #30: Meditation, Aphorisms & Yoga Sage Brushes With Wisdom

$30* Off on International Flights




What follows is a grocery list of things I've learned from life and various approaches to living exploring Creativity & Spirituality---being an artist, student of meditation, regular fasting & yoga, internal yearning towards higher consciousness and becoming a more creative being for positive transformation. These are general principles and observations I try to live by and navigate the wilderness of Maya with. Some are Confucius sounding hence the jest with the title if the long bearded Chinese sage wanted to narcissistically self--aggrandize himself.

Here's the thirtieth batch of Zen Brownies---Tasty, mouth--watering morsels to reduce consumption of bad karma and sweeten the recipe of your life:

 

1. We outgrow people. We outgrow things. We outgrow identities. Most often, no one will tell you when that identity is too small for you. Avoid the advice of those afraid of losing who they need you to be at the expense of your growth.

2. Religion in the hands of tribal groups, cultures, and societies is often a dangerous thing. It creates a rigid exclusivity, a mob and hive mentality more willing to engage in violence while suppressing self individualization and personal growth.

3. Don't let your happiness and dreams be sacrificed to the false god of appearances.

4. Most people aren't aware of what they're creating. Most of the time it's chaos, duality, and separation from harmony. Unconscious creation from all these uncontrolled rampant conflicting thoughts and emotions makes them prisoners in the jail without walls they unknowingly create for themselves.

5. There are consequences to thoughts and actions beyond what is seen and experienced in this world. Laws are for those asleep to the realities of Karma.

6. What you haven't defeated in your youth becomes more pronounced and powerful with age. Becoming more Spiritually mature and aware means realizing the oil spills of your inner chaos out in the world are your responsibility to clean up and cap at the source.

7. If you knew how long it took you to get to this point in your Existence, you wouldn't so willingly slide down the ladder of de--evolution chasing material things and material pleasures.

8. Visit India, and one of two things will happen after you return: Your life will completely get better or your life will completely fall apart then get better. Either way it's because the you that returned is no longer compatible with the you that came before.

9. Beginning to cry for things beyond this world is happiness for a Yogi. Crying for things other than the bondage of the body, it's material needs, desires and attachments, is the sound of connecting to Higher Freedoms.

10. All the accolades, degrees, rewards, wealth, admiration, and success in the world is small compared to achieving constant contact with the Illuminating Void, the Lightless Light, the Divine Womb of Emptiness.

What follows is a grocery list of things I’ve learned from life and various approaches to living exploring Creativity & Spirituality—being an artist, student of meditation, regular fasting & yoga, internal yearning towards higher consciousness and becoming a more creative being for positive transformation. These are general principles and observations I try to live by and navigate the wilderness of Maya with. Some are Confucius sounding hence the jest with the title if the long bearded Chinese sage wanted to narcissistically self–aggrandize himself.

Here’s the twenty–ninth batch of Zen BrowniesTasty, mouth–watering morsels to reduce consumption of bad karma and sweeten the recipe of your life:

 

1. Recorded history is just the current pop music on the planet. It’s also anthropocentric. There’s all this other music the planet has heard that people never will.

2. The war that matters most is liberation from your ego. Turn the binoculars inward to find where the real enemies and traitors are.

3. If you’re always in a hurry, how in control of your life are you? People think it makes them important when in reality makes them numb, distracted and asleep. It makes people’s consciousness scattered and paper thin. If you are truly in control of your life, then you wouldn’t be in a rush or hurry all the time.

4. Junk food is addictive and nutrient deficient, the perfect combination to have long term customers which is the intent at the price of your long term health.

5. You can have feelings. Don’t let them have you.

6. Money, knowledge and power in the hands of degenerated thinking is a vineyard of evil.

7. Don’t waste time with the secondhand battles of the ego. They’re just diversionary skirmishes keeping you in the prison of it’s identities of race, country, religion and gender wearing the blindfold of pride.

8. The inside jokes of the Universe are so worth it.

9. There’s Higher Consciousness and then there’s “success” here. The level of consciousness needed to become a millionaire or billionaire isn’t very high. The fact remains you cannot buy Higher Consciousness with money.

10. When you take off the blindfold of ignorance, don’t be surprised it was you who was the assassin of your Soul.

Here’s the twenty–eighth batch of Zen BrowniesTasty, mouth–watering morsels to reduce consumption of bad karma and sweeten the recipe of your life:

 

1. Giving with expectation isn’t giving. Doing so is giving on ego loan.

2. The less information given, the less life experience and perspective acquired, the more likely to form the suggested opinion.

3. The dreams of defeated people turn into the anti–aircraft guns for yours.

4. Reading and memorizing Scripture is only a beginner’s step. At some point you have to graduate to the practice of some higher technique like Meditation and mantras.

5. Feeling equally at home in motion and stillness is the sign of an evolving Soul.

6. Divinity will appear in the desert of your thoughts and senses.

7. If you do not like how the world is, begin meditating and you will improve it in ways beyond what your logical mind can conceive. You’ll also evolve out of this level of existence long before it will perfect itself.

8. In the solitude of Meditation, you’ll meet deeper levels of yourself.

9. You can outgrow the entire human experience like you outgrow a toy. To outsiders it may look like renunciation or deprivation, but in reality it simply became the next version of playing with trucks in the sandbox.

10. My culture showed me what I think I wanted. My Gurus reminded me what I really wanted.

Here's the twenty--seventh batch of Zen Brownies---Tasty, mouth--watering morsels to reduce consumption of bad karma and sweeten the recipe of your life:

 

1. The early church was an enemy of science. These days corporations and industries are enemies of science restricting more enlightened methods and inventions in the name of their own self preservation and profit.

2. If you fall in love with your viewpoints, how will you ever meet Higher Consciousness?

3. Instead of spending time and energy pursuing trivial goals, focus on your creativity, imagination and Spirituality. You'll free yourself from boredom and experience peace and contentment from the inside out as opposed to trying to acquire it outside yourself.

4. The paradigm of emotions and intellect is not Enlightenment.

5. Reasons for war should be examined deeper than soundbites and headlines. The lives of our youth are worth more than someone else's stock portfolio.

6. People can profess a faith and attend church regularly and still be Spiritually starving or bankrupt. Text is only a photograph of what it's like to be at a certain level of consciousness. Being there is the goal.

7. No method is applicable to all situations and scenarios. All systems unravel under certain circumstances and the continued practicing of them does not constitute a solution.

8. Growing is a process of casting off who you thought you were like the skin a chameleon.

9. People spend their entire lives wishing for frivolous things. At the end of their lives, they may wish they had simply wished for a life without disease, suffering and struggle.

10. With regular Meditation, you'll experience moments that peer into Eternity, that trigger gasps reminding you that there's greater beauty in the Universe beyond anything in this world.

1. If government fails to work in theory and practice, you can continue to vote with your dollar every day not every few years. Voting with your dollar speaks louder and longer over time.

2. Ask yourself if this world is good enough for you. If you can imagine better worlds, what makes you think The Creator cannot top your wildest fantasy utopias?

3. Theory is not reality. What’s perfect in your head will often fall apart outside of it.

4. When you focus on health, looking good is a by–product. Eat clean organic food, drink clean water, get necessary rest, walk and exercise regularly.

5. There’s chump change pleasures and then there’s the forces that rotate galaxies.

6. People want to be right over solving problems which contributes to and often creates the problem to begin with.

7. Honor the Soul over the country. Souls are Eternal, countries aren’t.

8. You can pretend to be on this planet simply for cultural and social purposes or choose to interact with reality at a deeper level.

9. The Creator is both older and younger than you at the same time. Eternally ancient and eternally new.

10. No attention span=no Meditation=no Higher Consciousness. Which means you’ll be stuck at this level of existence for a long time.

Hair Metal Heaven: Cinderella “If You Don’t Like It”




VenueKings.com

Ah, one of my favorite deep cuts of Hair Metal. This is Hair Metal having a bad hair day. This is Hair Metal Sweeney Todd would rock out to while practicing his horrific handiwork. If you've only heard Tom Keifer wail away on Cinderella singles released to radio, you'll be pleasantly pleased with this ear shattering escapade in E mixolydian. "If You Don't Like It" delivers bluesy banshee riffs with Tom's trademark sonic screams galloping on an uptempo iron horse.

 

"If You Don't Like It" is a track off Cinderella's sophomore album Long Cold Winter released in 1988. Long Cold Winter reached #10 on the charts and went double platinum by year's end. The album produced the Hair Metal classic "Gypsy Road" and the power ballad "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)" which holds as the highest charting single for Cinderella reaching the #12 slot. Long Cold Winter also included the singles "The Last Mile" and "Coming Home" which just edged in the top 20. "If You Don't Like It" is a fun FU song in the tradition of The Eagle's "Already Gone", Billy Joel's "My Life", and Metallica's "Escape." Tom Keifer carried this grand gospel of youthful declaration of independence to Hair Metal.

 

I don't need anyone
To tell me how to run my life
Got along alright so far
I don't really think I need to hear your advice
I've got my mind made up know what I wanna do
I'll do it anyway I choose
So just sit back shut up for a minute let me show you what I'm gonna do

 

Funny how a band name like Cinderella began in a location not exactly red carpet velvet rope glass slipper territory. Guitarist Tom Keifer and bassist Eric Brittingham met in a bar bathroom on Halloween in 1980. There's an "I Just Knew" tale that could stack up to the best of those relationship and wedding story TV shows. Actually Keifer and Brittingham had also revolved through the same Philadelphia area band Saints In Hell earlier.

 

We can't talk about Cinderella without mentioning fellow brotherly love band Britny Fox. Britney Fox was formed by 2 former Cinderella members: Guitarist Michael Kelly Smith and drummer Tony Destra. It's a Hair Metal fairy tale of the birth of 2 bands like Metallica and Megadeth minus the some kind of soap opera monster of drug abuse that always upstages people's lives.

 

Just over 2 hours outside Philly in Mechanicsburg, yet another 80's Hair Metal band was cutting their chops on nightclub stages before relocating to L.A.: Poison. Across the state line just south of the PA border in nearby Hagerstown, Maryland, Kix was blowing fuses in the club circuit. This general area was at the crosshairs of the east coast Hair Metal invasion. A decade earlier, the Philly area sprouted some Hall & Oates, who became one of the most successful duos of all time. Afterwards acts out of the Philly area that achieved prominence were R&B/Soul/New Jack Swing group Boyz II Men and Trance Fusion/Jam band the Disco Biscuits.

There's several vocalists in the Hair Metal Howler club I get my regular guilty pleasure fix along with Tom Keifer: "Dizzy" Dean Davidson of Britny Fox and Steve Whiteman from Kix. They continue the vocal styling of 70's rock bands like AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Nazareth which Tom Keifer could easily go back and time and fill in on a gig for Dan McCafferty singing "Hair Of The Dog" and only Dan's mom would probably notice.

 

"Nobody's Fool" firmly established Cinderella in the subgenre of pissed off maverick glam as their flagship song from their debut album Night Songs which reached the #13 position. The noble tradition continued on Long Cold Winter with "If You Don't Like It":

 

Take it to your heart gonna tell ya from the start
Gonna send a word or two your way
So just sit back take a ride on your pony
It'll all come back to you one day

 

There's so many cool parts to this tune: The strummed chords in the intro and overlaying spacious atmospheric whammy bar work, the main riff which becomes the bedrock for the chorus, the pulsating driving rhythm in verse like a steaming locomotive loaded with boxcars of boiling beratement, the slinky blues based snub your nose dalliance of the prechorus. There's even a Jon Bon Jovi sighting at the end of this clip if that's not enough:

As to Cinderella, the band had more in common with her maid rags as the preferred "Royal Ball" stage fashion during the 1980's than fairy tale footwear. Tom Keifer prefers wearing snakeskin boots when strolling down Gypsy Roads anyway, and if you don't like it, he's gone on record here on the probability of a care package arriving during a Long Cold Winter in Hell.
