Beautiful People and Dual Placement of Consciousness: The Meditative Deconstruction of Music Experience; it is a resource for reflection and growth of one's understanding of Higher Self
There is a song that I have been listening to while drawing. The experience of this particular song is enjoyed in more than just the beat and the tune. Its meaning is poignant to my understanding of self, as I listen to the song from a perspective of One. What I mean is that the song is called "Beautiful People," by Ed Sheeran, and it is about the dysfunction of identity within a materialistic, ego-centric society. Further, while listening, I strike a meditative state, and understand the song as the experience of dual-placement of consciousness. As the words progress, one notes that the singer's greatest fear is to become a "beautiful" person. Modern Day society has engendered an incorrect assumption that material wealth creates a beautiful life. The singer's point, for myself, is the reflective aspect of this work.
With the song experienced by the meditative mind, and placement of self is in position to own the words, one understands that the song is for the Whole Conceptual Self, as well as from the self. He states, "This is my only fear - that we become - beautiful people!" And, then continues his description of almost super-star experiences of the material.
Ultimately, the song, when experienced as a poem from the self, to the Self, this dual-placement of consciousness may further inform one, and assists him to see his position in relation to Higher Insight.
If we do not love our Whole Self, and know that we are part of the One-that-is-the-Center of All Things, we cannot assist our spiritual brothers and sisters on their Higher Path.
All of Me
This song is by John Legend. Again, by experiencing the work in dual-placement of consciousness, we understand the Great Love one may experience for Himself. This is a description of the complete devotion of self to Self, and strengthens and furthers one's understanding of Ultimate Love.
One realizes the Higher Point of Listening: His Grace is all-consuming. The singer states,
"...my heads under water, but I'm breathing fine. You're crazy, and I'm out of my mind.
Because all of me, loves all of you. Love your curves and all your edges, all your perfect imperfections.
Give your all to me, I'll give my all to you. You're my end and my beginning, even when I lose I'm winning."
And as one listens, the experience is the geometric formation of energies within self, that quiets the ego, and is reflective of physical experiences, but exalts one through reflection within dual-placement of himself, to a Higher State.
Love is always the goal. If one looks closely with both his heart and mind, he will understand this Higher Truth.
