The True Nature of Strategy in Music and Other Arts

Excerpt from the Book of Earth Chapter

More than likely, masters in your own world have taught you the manner in which you are to attain enlightenment relative to your chosen discipline. They have shown you the methods of the ancient masters and have told you to study them without let up and to continue studying them, even though you may think you have attained a grasp of what they talked about and how they performed. There is a very good reason that some of the ancients are thought of as masters. It is because they have influenced all those that came after them by first influencing themselves. The wise are wise because they learned and came to understand the wisdom of their predecessors in all areas of their intellect and soul. Using that wisdom, they evolved and became aware of many things and the variations attached. You as well should learn the importance of studying arts other than the music you are professing as your life’s work. You play the harp and you study other stringed instruments; you study flutes and horns, then percussion and voice and other cultural instruments; the list is endless. Though these are all music-based, you must also become aware of other art forms and disciplines: painting, sewing, carpentry, basic business principles, mathematics, mechanics, and technology. This can seem daunting, and you will choose which ones intrigue you, using every means available to you for the development of your divine and earthly right to live in joy and freedom while constantly focusing on your ideal.

To become well rounded, it is necessary to see other forms of discipline and, yes, adopt some of the principles into your own craft. Why? Because you will eventually notice all things are the same except for specific characteristics. Music, though, is something that has absolutely no functional or practical value except for expression of the soul, and that is what separates it from every other art form, without reservation. Because of music’s intrinsic reality, it takes both performer and listener to a completely different dimension that is not easy to explain. To communicate with another without words or physical actions is an expression of your soul.
