Accept my words only when you have examined them for yourselves;
do not accept them simply because of the reverence you have for me.
Those who only have faith in me and affection... continue...

vertical line Posted on Jan.30.2009 @ 05:09PM EDT by Woodsman
I have no control of what songs go through my head, which have been exposed to somewhere out in public. Work is a place for radio playing, that have given up the control of turning off what another turned on. But it's like, an exact reproduction over and over in my head, like some unwelcome guest who bugs me, or a bug who is unwelcome. At least they aren't voices, yet... well maybe they are. But again I am learning to allow this, not feel the pain of having to cover it with anything else, but silence. And if I could live in total silence, can't imagine, all the songs would fade in time, like past lives, like fear, sadness, irritation, everything but....

Hahah! Music.

All my life I have been brought up learning to appreciate Music.

My father and brother are musicians. And I too play piano.

Not a day goes by without say an old Beatles CD is playing in the background or piano going.

Quite irritating though I developed a condition where voices and such would annoy me. I've taken a good control over that just recently though gladdy.

I have definitely learned to accept the music pleasures I'm exposed to constantly.

"the path of the hearers" is something I came across in a book once. I'm guessing this path is to make you more intuitively sound and connected. I don't know... I'm more grateful for silence when I get it I think.

What is it like to be an addict of the experience of annoyance?

How many faces, how many voices, does annoyance have?

Tell me, Karma boy, looking at the kaermic sky. Have you ever heard the karmic songs on the radio. ADDICT.

But what is not addiction then?

vertical line Yep... last night it was 12 hours of background music, and the winner is...!!!
Cutting Crew... " I just died in your arm tonight. "

I'll give it 2 days.

Actually, that was pretty fitting, in a literal kind of way. Not that I'm supposed to glean any metaphorical meaning. As outside so inside.
