I’ve said this before, but I will say it again as a preface to this post. I do so boldly because I am not afraid of talking about those things that no one wants to discuss or admit. I enjoy courageous conversations. Those who are so brave are often the pioneers of progress. We should all speak up and speak out.
With all the coronavirus hype, I believe that there is a great deal of mind control at work. It amazes me how it seems the whole world “Follows” whatever is popular in media, such as raiding shelves of toilet tissue, fearing the coronavirus, making hasty decisions without question or investigation, “Liking” Nas X’s depicted encounter with Satan, twerking, being a “bad bitch”, or whatever.
Most people are being programmed and don’t realize it.
Well, we all are, including me, but I realize it. It is mainly being done for profit. AI is now forming our perceptions and emotions. I know this! I am very connected with the latest AI, machine learning movements. I have an over 20-year career history in technology.
I observed Mind Control occurring years ago when living in New Orleans. When there was even a spec of a possibility of a hurricane, the media made it seem like Armageddon was coming. As a result, the stores would be raided of supplies.
The same happens here in Colorado. When a snowstorm is approaching, it seems to be presented as the worse-case-scenario, but often doesn’t manifest that way. As a part-time gig shopper. I repeatedly see the produce, meat, and water shelves raided. And people freaking, motivated by fear.
But fear sells. It keeps economies churning, and gets people to do whatever they are told.
As a society, we seem to thrive on fear. It dictates our lives. It controls our mind, even if we think that we unshakably believe in God.
But to me, fear is the opposite of Faith. I am a faithful and discerned man. I am learning more every day and getting closer every day, to God, not man.
But I must strictly guard the information and energies that I take in. I have abstained from regularly absorbing the news and much of media, and am quite selective about my sources if I do happen to give my attention.
I have found refuge in music for years, though. Anyone who really knows me knows that I have an eclectic taste in music.
The genres of music I listen to most are, not in any order are Reggae, Gospel, World, Afrobeats, 70’s rock, Euro Rock & Longue, House, Meditation (frequency music), and Classical. I listen to a limited amount of rap music, except for rap classics. Remember, the message is important and rap music lyrics often contain low vibe, distracting messages.
At any sporadic moment, I can jump from one genre to another, depending on my spirit that day or moment. Sometimes I listen to jazz while creating, mostly Coltrane or Miles Davis.
As many people get uplifted in churches listening to the preacher, choir, or to gospel recorded music, so do I. But my spirit-food does not end there. I work to ensure that everything that I take in is uplifting. Music is where I often run to. But not to just gospel music.
I find that there are many incredibly talented artists who are just as spiritually uplifting, though they may not mention holy scriptures in their lyrics. Often their opinions vindicate the perspective that I share. Often, it relates to the times we’re experiencing.
The Marley family of artists is a great example. This exceptionally talented family’s brand, led by Bob Marley in spirit, is Socially Conscious & Spiritual music.
There are many other artists, particularly reggae ones, are branded this way, including Buju Banton, Benny Man, Gyptian, Jah Cure, even Vybx Kartel (on certain songs). I absolutely love the music of Youssou N’Dour of Senegal, and Burna Boy of Nigeria.
On the other end of the music spectrum, Lenny Kravitz, Sting, Seal, John Mayer, Sly Stone, Gill Scott Heron, and Credence Clear Water Revival are all on my Pandora, YT Music, or Spotify playlists.
Now To The Music –
Music…. …So much that it may take a while to load the page, depending on your WIFI speed.
Below I have gathered playlists of songs that provide empathy, guidance, and inspiration for me during these unusual times.
Interestingly, most of the songs are older songs. However, the messages in these songs are fitting for today. That supports my belief that the World is Cycle. Everything that is happening, has happened before and shall happen again.
The playlist is heavily influenced by my love of Reggae music. I have, however, included songs from other genres, some may surprise you. I do hope that you find at least one song that inspires your day. Kevy
Note: YouTube creators and artists allow me to SHARE these links, I think. I am not profiting off of their talent. I am simply SHARING IT with those who may need to hear the messages that they convey.
It is possible that some of these links will not work in the future, but when I published this post, they did.
Please skip past the commercials when they become too much. Some commercials may lead you to helpful information and products. AI controls which commercials may pop up, base on my “market segment” or yours.
