Which we understand that emotions are meant only for our self interests, so why do we put music into blog videos, or have a forum for it. Is there a different type of enjoyment for the group mind in regards to music. I am struggling with recognizing the physical importance of music, and how there is no energy within music.
Should I quit playing because I enjoy it.
See the point that I suggest you write about here on this thread is your relationship with music/ playing guitar itself. I had a similar reaction in the beginning with regards to music, due to how I had defined my life according to listening to music, playing music, wanting to be a musician and all of that became just another personality for me to 'cling on to' as a form of diversion from actually facing myself. Hence I began to see 'who am I' if I stop listening music for a while, if I don't play music any longer - and see 'what's left' without it. This does not mean stopping at all, but just taking a moment to walk through this 'experiment' which is : seeing how playing guitar/ listening to music becomes another hobby/ habit as part of a particular character.
So, it's just like any other point in anyone's life that defines 'who they are' - for example a cook only defining themselves as their love for cooking or a dentist defining themselves as their absolute enjoyment for taking care of people's teeth - etc. It's not about the music in itself, but Who You Are within that music-enjoyment and appreciation and creation.
Should all music just be banned due to the enjoyment.
Nope, it's about redefining music - just as everything else. If you hear lyrics embedded on popular music, you can definitely spot the fact that they are Not Self-Supportive at all and that who we are as people allowing such music to exist as 'entertainment' is also a reflection of how we have used/ abused music as a means to make it just another business that must comply to 'what sells' in the system - which is how also the role of 'musicians' is linked to fame/ fortune in terms of how it works on popular culture.
Thus, see how music is currently part of the same system wherein , just as anything else, money decides what music 'makes it' and what music don't. In this, it is within individuals like you and many more participating at Desteni that are redefining music to an equal and one self-expression that can definitely be of absolute support to this process, as it's already being done
Here's a redefinition by Sunette on 'Musician'
Sunette wrote: Musician - Muse - I - Cian - an individual that can be a Muse (Muse) in the Minds of Individuals (I) that incision through the pre-programming into the Physical, where the words/sounds of/as the music remain with/within the being and really make a mental/physical difference in who the being is within themselves and their lives.
Also see how it's not that enjoyment is something 'bad' or anything like that, it's about Who You Are in the moment of playing: is music giving you a 'high'? Has music become a way to enclose within yourself wherein you are not in fact looking at the reality of you and this world, but only listening to music/ playing music / music music music all the time?' - can you live without music? These are pertinent questions that you can start asking for yourself and share the writings about it here, so that we can support on establishing Self-Honesty about it.
It's also not about energy or wanting to see what has energy or not - I mean currently we all run as such just by living in this system. This is why walking this process implies taking all that you currently are and participate in and walk it through a process of Self-Correction. This implies that within common sense = the consideration of what's best for all, we go observing what we do/ participate in through writing ourselves, applying self forgiveness and developing self-honesty to then see How we can practically redefine music, how we can practically support ourselves to make music that is self-supportive for this process.
There's already several examples of how that works - visit the Music for Equality
group on Facebook for more
And also the stuff available at Eqafe in the Music Section
You can consider these points and see how you can practically become part of the new generation of musicians that stand up for Life in Equality.
If something's not clear or further questions arise, share them.
