´ Treating Truth Like a Musician Treats Music -
March 6, 2015

A musician is the opposite of the modern human in daily life. While we try to cram in information in our brain and cut everything down to the essentials a piece of music would be completely pointless, if it were consumed the same way. Just think what would happen if you would just cut out your favourite notes of a melody and lyrics and put them in bullet points: a complete and utter mess, no matter how diligently you worked.

Musicians on the other hand can’t just glance at the notes and highlight whatever seems the most important. A musician will not only practice until the piece can be played without mistakes. A musician will play until the song becomes an instinctual part of themselves. The truths I hold dear I want to approach like a musician. Not just practice until I can do it properly: live the truth again and again until I am transformed and it has become my instinct.
