I believe that we need to be a mass of successful focussed people
who look after their body, mind and spirit, their home, community and their world.”
In this blog I’ll be telling you some more about who I am, what I believe in and how that relates to my online presence and music. I’ll also be letting you know where I am on my journey so far!
My Music Set Up
So where to start? It’s been almost a month since I posted last about asking for help with my music set up. How far have I got? Well, firstly, I’d like to say a big thank you to those of you who were able to help me with this. I was donated some money, lent some and some I had a bit too, which meant that I was able to get this all set up:
At the top is my RC50 Loop Station, which I’ve had for a couple of years. In the bottom left there’s the Kaoss Pad 3 (KP3). In the middle is a Phonic MU1202 Mixer that’s been lent to me so that I can route everything easily. I plan to get another Kaoss Pad 3 soon to finish the first phase of this set up as with two KP3s I’ll be able to add really cool effects onto my voice and the music – it’ll add depth to what I’m doing. Originally I bought two Kaoss Pad Quads to use but as they are machines made for DJ’s to add depth to their midi sets it didn’t really work on my voice. I very quickly realised that I needed to upgrade the KP Quads to KP3s. I had enough money to do this with one but not with both. So I’m halfway through saving for another KP3! I’ve put my beautiful snowboard and its paraphernalia up on ebay so that I can raise the rest of the money. Wish me luck.
Why am I blogging?
The picture above is ‘the flower of life’ and the blue spheres (Sephirot) within it are called ‘the tree of life’. Each sephirot has particular qualities about them, and the idea is to learn about these sephirot and the pathways between each one and then use the information to help you reach the top one – Kether; enlightenment. There is so much information about them depending on which school of thought you choose and I’m still learning about that so I don’t want to go into much at the moment but I will do in later posts.
Interestingly I have also found that the tree of life matches up with the chakras, the Hermetic Principles, the Tarot and the planets too, which to me seems all amazingly cosmic! I’ll be posting more about this at a later date!
So, the idea of me posting about this all here is to share this information and see if I can actually become a better person. I truly believe that times are a changing and that in order to make this world a better place, how we want it to be then we need to change who we are for the better. As we start being honest about who we are, living within Natural Law, and striving to be better on all levels, then the world will start evolving into a better place too. The first step that I want to take to help make the world a better place is to better myself, and from there it’ll start spreading out. What are your opinions on this?
So this is as much as I think I want to write for now. Please do let me know your comments, I’m always up for hearing from you. And if you are in a position to donate to my music fund I would greatly appreciate it – there is a donate button in the top right corner of this blog. Thank you.
With my love and best wishes to you all,
