Word Up Part 2
    #915046 - 09/28/02 04:23 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Ok, your moderator is high, again.  Here's some cool lyrics for you guys from my favorite rock star! :wink:  Todd (God) Rundgren  I know it's a lot to read but it has deep meaning and may be helpful.  It ain't the final word but it is food for thought if you like to think. :wink:

Healing  ( Parts 1, 2, and 3 )

Listen, listen
Listen to the voice,
the voice is an illusion
Listen to the voice,
don't let the words confuse you
'Cause you need something to concentrate on,
concentrate on me
You need something to meditate on,
meditate on me

Listen, listen
Listen to your heart
tune into the rhythm
Listen to your heart
beating with precision
Like the waves upon the seaside,
it goes on and on
Like the spinning of the world,
it goes on and on

Listen, listen
Listen for the sound
that is not in the music
Only you can hear it,
only you can use it
It's the sound of someone breathing,
it's the breath of life
It's the sound that you are weaving
with the thread of life

Listen, listen
Listen to the sound,
let nothing disturb you
You are in a place
where nothing can hurt you
If you feel a strange sensation,
it can do no harm
Like the spiral of creation,
it will soon move on

Where you are going
you cannot take your body
You are on a journey,
the baggage is too heavy

You can leave your legs behind you,
you will learn to fly
You can leave your arms behind you,
you will touch the sky
You can leave your head behind you,
you are thought itself
You can leave the rest behind you,
you are breath itself

Now you are naked,
there's no one here to judge you
See the clear light
shining high above you
Then you're floating in the silence,
you are not alone
For the power of your being
keeps you flowing on
Look upon yourself
only with compassion
Strip away the shell
hiding your perfection
Though your past was full of darkness,
now the past is gone
And your life is starting over
when it's just begun

Now you are whole,
don't you recognize it
Towering eternal
behind the troubled thoughts that hide it
Though at times it seems so distant,
it is always there
When you need its peace and power,
you will know it's here

Listen, listen
Listen to the cry
of a world that's calling to you
Listen to the cry
of the helpless souls that need you
Though you may have trepidation
you can not refuse
You will find your own salvation
in the path you choose

Listen, listen
Listen to the voice
that whispers in the silence
Listen as the voice
solidifies your self reliance
Let the peace that you've discovered
be a guiding light
Let the cry that you've uncovered
set the world aright

You could not be closer to your maker
never more or less alone
If you know thyself
there's nothing else to know
You are whole

Listen, listen
Listen to the sound,
let nothing disturb you
You are in a place
where nothing can hurt you
If you feel a strange sensation,
it can do no harm
Like the spiral of creation,
it will soon move on

Spiritually Advanced Guru Musician from the 60's whose small devoted band of devotees revere as God. You're too young to know much about him.

Take it from there.

hehe
tool are highly talented musicians
but they aren't the uber-spirit-gods a lot of obsessive fans make them out to be.
if you want some intricately beautiful music, tool are your men
but don't think maynard's "message" is meant to be taken entirely seriously

The band I think is meant to be viewed as more of a tool to question reality and the world around you. it's impossible to pinpoint maynard's message, as any form of art. but since he's so damn good at writing lyrics, millions of fitting interpretations can be drawn. beautiful amazingly talented musicians, and equally as thought-provoking lyrics.

I do agree tho. Don't put all your Tools in one basket.

Not to disabuse you of your false notions but:

1. I do not have two Doctorates. That was a joke. I do have a doctor. His name is Mengele.

2. I was referring to my state of emotion. I haven't taken any drugs for quite a while.

Sorry.

As if anyone with two doctorates from Stanford and Harvard would have time to frequent this message board as frequently as mr. mushrooms...

  " yes i'm professor emeritus, a fellow, and uh...i smoke a lot of pot and mod the shroomery spirituality forum." 

i suppose the fact that you believed it is a testament either to your stupidity or to Mr. Mushrooms intelligence.  :grin:
