rocky road to redemption

Chicago - V (listen) Does grooving out to Chicago mean I've given up the dream? Can I finally let myself go now that I am listening to Chicago on purpose? Isn't letting go what its all about anyway?

Mahavishnu Orchestra - Visions of the Emerald Beyond (listen) Isn't the point of enlightenment about freeing oneself and exposure to the Enormity as opposed to building walls?

Miles Davis - On the Corner (listen) But, is there such a thing as being too open? Can't you be consumed if to stay too long, too close to the fire? Does the issue lie in getting consumed, or in not getting consumed?

Can - Tago Mago (listen) When we are consumed, are we just burning off all detritus, just to be born anew in the ashes?

Funkadelic - Standing on the Verge of Getting it On - Or is the point just getting to that edge of consumation by whatever means will get you there and holding back with whatever means you still maintain?

  1. Enlightenment is living in this moment, the present, not something we can strive for. "Saturday in the Park" is bliss, but "If You Leave Me Now" is nirvana.
