You know … I ain’t no Einstein … but …
As with every Full Moon this one has it’s share of really cool moments. There were a group of folks from Serbia who came in where I was performing as a singing piano player entertainer. They were part of a travel agency junket. You know, where the tourism bureau invites a bunch travel agents from another country so they can pitch packages for their customers to come to Chicago.
They were from halfway around the world; a part of the world I have precious little knowledge of – and I’m thinking, “What can I play for them that they like and I know?”
So do you know what they ask for? Today’s Country music hits. That’s right. They want Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean and Eric Church and Taylor Swift. Amazing, isn’t it?
We have become a very small world. The barriers and traditional boundaries are evaporating. They don’t exist anymore. Whether it is the fault of the internet or YouTube or satellite TV/radio or video on demand that has broken down the barriers … or … it’s just the fact that we are all one human race. The results are in:
There is no more us and them. There is no mystery about the guy across the pond or the people who live north of here or in that county. We are all the same – with the same desires and dreams. It’s all one group. And the people that realize this are the ones who get to accept, receive and observe the good things in life.
When we think of ourselves as “Citizens of the Universe” we think of ourselves as part of the whole. Sure we have our likes and dislikes. But when we have our minds open we find we are all amazingly similar. That makes things super easy when you look at it like that, don’t you think?.
I think Einstein said it best, “A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest … Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
