Listen to Neil deGrasse Tyson on Becoming You.
What would this kind of authenticity, truthfulness and purposefulness look like for you? What would your uniqueness look like? What would your best self manifest? What would finding the combination of facts that apply to you look like? And where do you start?
For me, I think in terms of songs that speak to my soul.
- Simple Man by Shinedown.
- Unity by Shinedown
- and pretty much every Shinedown song ever written. 🙂
or these albums…
- Alter Bridge – One Day Remains
- Sweet -Desolation Boulevard
- Extreme – Pornograffiti
- Thin Lizzy – Johnny the Fox
- Doobie Brothers – What Were Once Vices are Now Habits
- John Mellencamp – Lonesome Jubilee
I could go on. But music is a medium of meaning for me. When I reflect upon the totality of tastes, I start to get clarity on my passion and purpose. I consider the virtues or strengths of character that are represented in my musical tastes… zeal, discernment, courage, nobility, strength, unity, love, honor, idealism, wholeheartedness and more.
Yes, I think Neal has a point. Neal’s Fandango does too. 🙂 What does your music say for you; about you? Move with that.
Oh my music, if I didn’t have you.
Peace, passion and prosperity.
