“I asked Bobby Dylan
I asked The Beatles
I asked Timothy Leary
But he couldn’t help me either
They call me ‘The Seeker’
I’ve been searching low and high
I won’t get to get what I’m after
Till the day I die”
Where It All Begins: Most of us have been there. Once upon a time we were content with our lives living in blissful ignorance. Then one day, we developed a yearning for more. Questions started to bubble up and stir inside. We felt confused and desperate, like we were missing out on the big picture. What could it be? Where do I get answers? Under chairs? Under tables?
“If I am hardened, no fear of further abandonment
If I am famous then maybe I’ll feel good in this skin
If I am cultured, my words will somehow garner respect
I’d be filthy rich and still it would not come
I would seduce them and still it would not come
I would drink vodka and still it would not come
I’d have an orgasm still it would not come”
When The Social Mask Starts To Fall Off: The main two reasons why we wear a social mask are to protect our frail identity (ego) from being hurt and / or to portray to the world something we are not. When our inner image (how we see ourselves) does not match our outer image (what we show to the world) we develop self-doubt which in turn leads to self hate which leaves us in a bit of a mess. We turn to external sources for fulfillment. Unfortunately that satisfaction never comes.
3. All My Life. – Foo Fighters
“All my life I’ve been searching for something
Something never comes never leads to nothing
Nothing satisfies but I’m getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope
Done done on to the next one
Done I’m done and on to the next one
Done done on to the next one
Done I’m done and on to the next”
Death and Rebirth: For some of us, seeking begins before incarnating in our current body. When we leave unfinished business, lessons, and aspirations in a previous life we seek to fulfill them in this one. To attain Moksha (liberation) and Jeevan Mukti (living enlightenment) we must seek the truth about who we are and why we are here. If we do not, we will continue to be trapped in the Karmic cycle of rebirth.
4. Everyday Is A Winding Road. – Sheryl Crow
“Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine”
The Psychological Ups and Downs: One important thing to remember as we become more attuned to our feelings and emotions is that we are not our physiological, psychological and neurological ups and downs. Our moods are based on illusion. Our true nature is to be blissful and produce our own bliss chemistry without the need of external sources.
5. Under The Bridge. – Red Hot Chili Peppers
“Sometimes I feel
Like I don’t have a partner
Sometimes I feel
Like my only friend
Is the city I live in
The city of angels
Lonely as I am
Together we cry”
The Dark Night of the Soul: On the journey to higher consciousness the seeker might experience what is referred to as “The Dark Night of the Soul”. This is a period of intense loneliness, sadness and hopelessness. It is said that this occurs when our ego begins to dissolve and we begin to lose our identity. Many people and things in our lives will fade away because they are no longer aligned to the higher vibration and new awareness we are developing.
6. My Sweet Lord. – George Harrison
For The Spiritually Bi-Curious: This song is personally very special to me. Growing up with a fascination for all things Eastern in a Mexican-Catholic household was very interesting. When I first discovered ISKON and the beauty of the Hare Krishna mantra this song was a good excuse for me to sing my praises without raising suspicion of heresy. My Mom never caught wind of the “Hare Krishna, Hare Rama” part. For all she knew I was blasting Church music. Hallelujah!
“We were talking
About the space between us all
And the people who hide themselves
Behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth
Then it’s far too late
When they pass away”
The Guru Speaks: Simply one of the most beautiful and lush Beatles songs. Listening to it is a meditation.
“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence”
Visions and Prophecies: This song seems straight out of of an Edgar Casey prophecy. When our intuition increases we connect deeper with the subconcious which can lead to lucid dreaming, out of body experiences, and, accurate divination.
The hint of the century
The slip that brought me
To my knees failed
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around
Now I’ve said too much”
Alien Disclosure and Conspiracy Theories: Listen to this song from a Corey Goode and David Wilcock angle. Soon you will find yourself looking up at the sky.
“People are strange when you’re a stranger
Faces look ugly when you’re alone
Women seem wicked when you’re unwanted
Streets are uneven when you’re down
When you’re strange faces come out of the rain
When you’re strange no one remembers your name
When you’re strange, when you’re strange
When you’re strange”
Growing Up Weird: The way we deal with our inner world reflects the same of the outerworld. We project and create our own reality.
