Music, Time and the Muse...

"I love you for who you were, who you are... and who you are going to be."



I love music.  When listening to just the right song at just the right time, beautiful moments of clarity can happen.  To me, contentment is being surrounded by a sweet melody, laying in the middle of the floor staring at a candle lit ceiling.  For hours.  Drifting in and out of consciousness caught in that sweet place that is just in between sleep and alertness.  The feeling of stillness within.

That is my happy place.
 
When I was young I used to lay between my stereo speakers by candlelight.  Music would draw me into that state of relaxation.  A form of meditation that opens the mind for free thinking.  Analyzing.  Planning.  If I am anything in this life, I am a planner.  

Some of my most fulfilling and wonderful ideas have happened in those moments.  Drawing out in my mind where I need to go in the next six months.  The next year.  The next five years.

Where do you really want to be?  What do you absolutely have to do to get there?  Do that.  You should definitely do that and do that starting right now.  This second, this very moment in time.


Time is of the essence because time is the ONLY thing in this life that we can never get back.  There will never be another March 3, 2014 for any of us.  It's gone and will never return.  What we do with March 4, 2014 is completely up to us.  We can choose to walk the path that is currently underfoot or we can choose to take the fork in the road that will lead in a completely new direction and adventure.

We can not choose to just exist, we can choose to live.

Music has always helped me along my path of choosing to live.  I don't believe we are fated or destined.  We find our muse to guide us.  To feed us our passions, our spirit for happiness. 

Music is in my happiness, my muse, and time is on my side.

William Shakespeare wrote: All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

What song is setting your stage today?

Just something to ponder my friends...



Happy Tuesday...

*hugs*
