Dream On

January 17, 2014

Last night, I dreamed many dreams at once. Each dream look like a shred of paper after that paper had been through a shredder. Thousands of shreds were all tangled up in each other like two dimensional spaghetti. Like Bob Dylan’s hair in that classic Milton Glaser print. Strands upon strands like old stuffing in my mind. But fortunately I had the ability to see this entanglement, this too-many-thoughts-at-once challenge before me. And it was as if I had said, “one dream at a time please,” as all of a sudden all of the shreds formed a single line, and all that there was before me became one single strip of paper, one story to be told, one path to be walked, one dream to be lived.

When I awoke, I realized my dream was symbolic of what I often do in my waking life. Thinking too many thoughts at once. Dreaming too many dreams at the same time. Not having one focus, but many.

Mind control has been a central story for me for a long time. “Don’t let your mind stop you from having a good time.” Or “I won’t worry my life away.” Etc.

To remedy this, I focus my attention on one thing. My penis.

Just kidding.

You might have heard the phrase, “to know God, serve others.” Well, in my experience, God is the one voice in our hearts and minds that gives life to all the other voices we create. And Spirituality is the work of taking all of those voices and fine-tuning them back into one voice. Serving others is a good way to let go of our mental chatter, surrendering to a good deed, thus feeling better and sleeping better.

You can also serve yourself; through prayer, meditation, yoga, exercise, writing, gardening or maybe just going for a long drive. Whatever it is for you, those tasks help train your mind to focus on just one thing. Doing so helps fine-tune and strengthen the inner God or Guide-voice that guides you, the voice you share your life with, not the add-on voices given to you by family, fears, and society. Your heart’s voice, the life energy given to each of us, the energy we have access to the moment we are born, before we even know what words are, that energy is the true voice, the true one voice that directs us to the dreams we are here to realize. And knowing what your dream is and living it, that is the key to success. That is the key to happiness.

Whatever your dreams look like, and they do look different for each of us, you are here to live specifically for that dream. If you think you don’t know what your dream is just stop and listen. Listen to the all the layers of your surrounding environment. The hush of distant traffic. The closeness of busy bees. The melodic mumble of birds chirping. The faint hovering whir of a helicopter. The conversation from the neighbor’s television. The sub stereo bass of a passing car. Or the sound of your own breathe. Your own deep inhales and long slow exhales… In that peaceful non-sound of your stillness, that’s where your dream lives.

You are not your many concerns and your dream is not the concern of others. Your dream is who you really are.

And it’s always there singing to you, you just have to give yourself a moment to hear it.

Now go, be that ballerina you always wanted to be.

Or, What’s the name of a male ballerina? A baller?

Yeah, go be a baller.

    I have way to many thoughts at once. I’m not really sure what my life purpose looks like. I always try to lead with my heart instead of my head.Sometimes that means putting myself aside to serve others that I love and care for. Not taking enough time to slow down to see what my dream is. Time has slowed down in the last year,and after sickness,death and a whole lot of life’s lessons I’m still trying to find myself. Life is full of up’s and down’s and I’m still grateful to be here. I also know I can always find the good in every day no matter what comes. Enough said about that! I just wanted you to know I am loving all the new songs and can’t wait to listen to “YES” in all it’s beauty. Thank you for the beautiful, beautiful music. My favorite so far is “Hello, You beautiful thing”. All the best to you and Raining Jane, I’m sure this album will be a big success. Congratulations!! I think you are amazing, and a beautiful soul. Hopeful you’ll have some Canadian dates with promotion. Have a lovely Day.

    If a man could pass through Paradise in a dream, and have a flower presented to him as a pledge that his soul had really been there, and if he found that flower in his hand when he awake — Aye, what then?

    Scrolling past 91 messages just to comment takes few minutes on cell. FYI :-)

    Any who

    I so miss your words keep going to journal page to find tidbits from you it has been a while.

    However I have been finding little bits of suprises with new old songs still making it to my viewer. Those moments of awe when listening and damn I swear you took the same path in lessons shared as I. Funny how a song is developed from a singers own experiences yet two others or thousand find it relating to something totally different in their own lives. You Sir make my soul vibrate beyond words and my eyes sore from the emotions felt in release they say “TEARS REFRESH THE SOUL” Thank you

    I will never run out of words “Sorry” but not sorry for sharing my thoughts publicly.

    So

    Do come back and inspire with anything you have to share. Much needed for me as well as I am sure for others too.

    Without dreams we have no expansion within the mind for any if and or whats to play a part of imagination or dreams come true.

    Done rambling but not done thinking of things to say.

    YES

    This is my year and then some.

    Hi Jason,
    What is the chance that you are going to see this?
    Well, It might be slight, but I’ll take it anyway.
    I love your music, but also, I love your spirit, your love for Mother Nature and love for human beings.
    You are my greatest inspiration. Because of you and your music, and your writing, you kept me go on and through difficult times in life.
    I’ve made it to medical school and found my own purpose in life and that is helping people from my heart.
    I would like to ask if you could take a look at our organization and see if you like our purpose, please check Naturopaths Without Borders out on facebook or online at naturopathswithoutborders.org

    Hop

    I’m feeling a little bit poetic:

    I sense and sense continued DOUBT
    You know what this is ALL about
    Why not shorten UP this BOUT.?.
    Rhymes go on and on this route…I’m so tired of being flout.
    It’s as if we planned this grout…Let’s inspire LOVE with clout.
    You know that this could last as tout…Mercy spares even the lout.
    And that is how it ALL does spout…Let’s move on with our own sprout.

    Yeah so….

    OMG!!!!

    OH my Goodness….

    Oh good heavens and love we been faking dreams she been making- tofu not bikinis..I don’t even talk about bacon or money around you because the infinite light of why has finally clicked after so many hours of mentally searching. WHAT does THAT mean. Not my bidness Daycare friend. The business of love. ASON with a J….Holmes WAZZZUPPPPPP!

    yeah it’s me- gotta tell you some more of the children of light series. Did you say you have a TRIBE…You have a tribe. Freak-en……Nah Dude. I haven’t talked to you since the day you were hanging out with H.A.I.R. I think. But I saw you on the cover of USA TODAY under the Beatles cute icon. Who would have ever imagined when you were a dreamer back in jeans when Sublime was all the rage that your kind inspiration encouraging each beautiful person to let their light shine would carry you above the clouds to dream n stages showing witness and divine example of God’s love- thank you for echoing the truth that loving one another and living in gratitude each day brings an unspoken peace of mind.

    Social Reps these words, if your bored, will linger in your hearts and the invisible strings between yours and his communicate when we aren’t consciously listening to the songs our hearts sing while in eachothers presence. Yeah you can sing…don’t even be shy about that…we all know you bust when no one is looking. Then the messages get there whether we discuss them or have the time to read them or not. The NAMM interview specifically discussed this comment section- that was only like 3-4 weeks ago. To a time traveler it’s integral to stay somewhat fresh in awareness of where your spirit siblings travel to keep the boat afloat. I don’t stalk. I talk when I visit so as to be opposite of creepers. BRO I KNEW there was a reason for the insanity. Forgive my ego- my dignity if you will…I prayed everyday to understand the persistence. And my relentless, endless commitment to one in love. That will sting in ways I can’t explain. Especially the lies spread by my good eternal enemies which means friend in opposite world…duh) G with sauce of some sort. I will always remember hearing him talk to you and finding out days later the two of you recorded together. In retrospect I celebrate the gifts and ability to hear that. It’s virtually impossible according to the current stage of science. Hurray for wisdom lighting our paths.

    In August 2008 before the excruciating pain of my custody battle began- well…to the level it became… I ran into my house one afternoon and had written words while ethereally walking around with you- “Patience wrote the Book” For her virtue and her highest purpose…I thank our Mother….I thank our Good Heavenly Father…I share the equality with all I live to love and each precious face i greet. So. Enough blah…this is why I came here:

    I wouldn’t ever ever treat a fly unkindly let alone my neighbors given the good nature my parents raised me with. I never meant to hurt anyone and pray I had been given messages of love, encouragement and support during 2008-2012 while actually writing and documenting the tweet tracks laid for the soul train to preserve the generations of tomorrow. Our families hearts pulse love to keep the lights in the sky shining. Fpr this I thank your parents…I thank their parents…I thank each tribe- or crew- or condominium- for the energetic surge emitted as Dr Emoto explained to us years ago 2004 or so in the documentary “What the Bleep do we know” Obviously life has been evolving breath by breath since light met mass…but on a personal level as a mother and soon grandmother I stand to testify this is REAL ( The grandma part like in 5-10 years… I am still only 34 but Asia is almost 16 and SO in love with her soulmate) Oh how I wish I could share the good lessons…Humbling lessons…of the pain of our limited 1 hr Skype due to lack of legal representation. Yeah I was trading professional massage w that attorney after the first $6000 in days or so- and he turned lame. I refuse to play that way. So he didn’t show 1 exhibit in court and it’s been a year from right now to be able to stand back up. Plus I wrecked my car the other day and lost my job. Dude. This alchemy BS is fatefully and painfully genuine. It’s to the penny and wrings me dry when it’ time for a life path shift. Am I that obstinate it has to get so extreme?

    The timing on this is naturally unfolding …taming my instant fire tongue to shhh….to be still….and to listen to the kids describe who they are vs. what I as their mama may have imposed upon them had our circumstances been instantly given is good. I am truly grateful. My son has stood strong against the abuse of his stepmother. He lives at grandmas as I am typing up the most POWERFUL case that has hit Ut. Like this sacred revolutionary story…it may unfold slowly (a few years is slow to us) but the impact of our universal lessons to love our enemies and let our trials strengthen our weaknesses has carved a new character within my body mind and spirit. And- my sweet inner vision now lies in the days I dream to be able to spend loving my grandchildren.

    These sweet little spirits entering their descent into humanity can feel angelic waves of love as they are guided to the right moment, the right parents, the right family to create mortal opportunity to grow and progress as a child of light….In large part due to the compassion you live on stage each day. Buddha would be proud I imagine and with my limited studies of Asian culture I don’t know that that is an inherent trait. Yay fo ya Mr Frost.

    It started at the light house in 2006. I had just filed for divorce and San Diego was only hours away…so I went to the tip of the end of America. Cabrillo.

    In dreaming how to start my wellness center I wrote the Back in Balance program. 7 day 6 night outdoor adventure. It has now evolved to a native American experience where students check in at the crack house :) …little cabin in the forest… to safely store all electronics etc and go through orientation. We grow each day as we walk through the gateway of petroglyphs left throughout Zion. Southern Utah is a Mecca for the writings of the ancients. And the story of the children of Light Lords of Darkness will allow families to engage together in the School of Light.

    5-10 solar powered all natural shelters with plumbing feeding the plant lined walls and geothermal heating cooling to assist them after a long days work. This hard days night stuff is for the birds. Each student has to work to eat and through our efforts we discover our dominant elements and earth name…etc etc.

    The publication from the info I gathered will act as a manual. “My daily journal” and the week will bring a massive self identity experience based on seminars I certified in by The Arbinger Institute called Leadership and Self Deception. I used to think I was so smart once…Oh it just plays on and on….

    btw youtube blocked me from you & won’t let me open your vids…I wonder why….we walk and talk so I 100% attribute this massive info overload to them forcing the issue. When I can’t openly tell you in spirit it led me to your page. But- don’t panic managers or NSA type people. It’s all good. As a butterfly to a spring flower I will flitter as I always do…landing here and there forgetting where I just was- because I live an independantly free life. I am aware (through painful past excess at the keyboard) that the words I post last throughout the rest of existence. What I say today I do so in reverence for humanity. Thank you future Jason Heads for learning through the gifts he is a conduit of. He is the real curbside to go service. No lie. Yeha….no you don’t know where I live and these hella cool guys made it so my eyes don’t know the pain of flash cameras and stage lights or popping eardrums thing they have to have night after night. I do sing and dance. And I used to steal stuff…but I went to jail once (3 times actually) for thinking I could just walk in and sleep there when my name wasn’t on the title so…NOT a good idea to break the laws.

    K- today it was like 4 am and he drifted in. Only been back to his page once or twice since like 90 days in his underwear years- swear it feels like ages and ages ago. But. yeah…

    So i asked him if I can turn on his you tube channel just to make sure his waves vibrate with his body so we know who he is so he doesn’t feel walking in his dream is being in a lost state- I have done that with John Lennon and Bob of course was here last night watching Stomp the Yard. He so good to me.

    His music resonated…I hopped up and turned on the light- and danced with his invisible shadow. he just sat on the bed…his spirit mass is a real live body- not sure why he is defferent than those of us here in bodies just flying. I hope he isn’t divided in two. He deserves the best…Sobriety and religion have changed my dancing style for sure. And as we spoke so many misunderstood moments were discussed between the election and drama from playing with G and knowing both sides…but not enough of either one to see why I trespassed in the first place. I can’t here….or there…or anywhere on line explain what I KNOW. Especially about You (in your 100% spirit) during those years. MY friend you been a nice nice friend. Talk about making a girl feel sexy for her mind. I wouldn’t be this without you- that’s for damn sure. And after you tubing for CC Brad Marley jumped in and protectively reminded me those guys weren’t nice in the real about my mindframe and then it led to your interview.

    Quantum Physics….I am guided by Mayans and original tribes of this land. Those souls not only tell the truth- there was no such thing as lie. Why would they? There was no shame and guilt…the virtue vice syndrome of our modern day and age is curable.

    I reread Jeremiah 1 yesterday. While in rehab 2011 this native american woman had me sleep in a hogan with a dreamcatcher above my head. At the time Dave Mathews was in Just roll with it..or something…I don’t want to google it right now. But after what had happened and how my life was a reel of fabricated story that had deeply affected my kids lives- I sought refuge. When I felt the Lord gift me with those comforting words- it calmed the anxiety slightly. At the time it seemed Charles Manson was a nice guy compared to the madness my choices created. As I have said before…I love me. I love how brave I have been. And I am so grateful we all survived whatever each of us went through the solidify our cores for the pillars we are now. Thanks so much for your patience Mr….there may not be a time to hug you and hold your hand as a sister and drag you to all the ruins and cemeteries and trees that taught me. Or for me to hop on a plane and see from your window of countries my real feet have never touched…but until then- I am grateful for you just the same.

    I don’t know if I WANT to write the book. It’s genius. It’s world record…literally…CAn you imagine if the bible was written with such accuracy how many lifes would have peacefully been lived here on Earth? It’s a precious privilege to have witnessed what I have seen. I think I will according to the stars…but my sweet solitude by rivers and walks without anyone knowing me is kind of nice. I can talk to myself- or you- or whoever we energetically attract into our auric bubbles (Abe Lincoln stopped by the other day) in safety and not fear having it blasted to cruel papanazzis. Being an author is an incredible gift…being an author of characters gifted with endless abilities through using elements and honoring animal totems in like having an African safari fit inside the backyard of a little American apt. My head hurts alot trying to play the cat in the hat without anyone in this small town knowing how undercover lover I really am.

    K bye for now. Love you. MUAH. Keep ya head up….Haters are haters not lovers or SK8rs….go pick up a seashell and remember mama loves you to. We were there in her arms where no one call people mean names or judge their artistic expressions and will be there again. Until then May I ever fallow in Eve’s footsteps that I may learn to discern between sorrow and joy God’s love to employ the tender mercies from on high. K…Bye.

    PS- Jason I never want to be a Judas and deny the great truth of Miracles Christ has worked inside of me. He woke me up when I died. He let me come back here to do this…But I sat at the governors desk on Saturday. Literally. And was in skid row 3 weeks before that in downtown LA haning out with homeless friends I teach a 12 step to. I don’t like the pace…or the differing lifestyles. To your spirit- Please help me maintain the inner courage I was born with & the valiance to stay true to what I know is right even if people judge by how it appears socially. Thanks 4 real ok? DB Lucy 6/15 not 23/77. I will always be two years younger. Or older depending on how you view age in this life. Don’t take this the wrong way but my year will kind of always be cooler because I graduated in 97 but that year backwards is when I graduated from wherever we were before this. you be you I be me and we be ok ok? And don’t glow to close to the sun….I don’t like flying away from my kids. They cute. They big and way smarter than us. I am doomed/my 10 year old still acts like the princess she was born as. You should have heard her bust Rihanna. Word for word- she can memorize and perform incredibly- she won 1st place at the talent show for singing, “Do you want to build a snowman…?” K love you bye.

    Dear Jason,

    Congrats on the new tour with Raining Jane – I have to say that the show was awesome and not only could one feel the light, love and intention that you all put out together, but your maturity, levity and light as an artist is so apparent.

    I got to speak with Chaska afterwards, who was a a like a butterfly landing on each of the fans out front, and told her that I loved the show, congratulations and it was really nice to be able to go to there and after a short while, sink in to my chair and just experience the love and amazingness that you all are putting out there. I also requested that you all make at least ten albums (lol – please?)… and purchased the Fond of Cats mug, which I will enjoy, most likely, with a cat on my lap.

    In terms of fanship, it was really nice to bring my friend Lauren, who is now a bigger fan than before. She loved going and had a great time. We also met other fans of yours outside on the street, hoping for a chance to meet you. (I cannot imagine what that must feel like – to have that kind response to your work and hopefulness towards meeting you. We tried sending out many good vibes while waiting to entice you to come out) Because this wasn’t the time to get to meet you, I want to tell you about a few of the folks – one was a mother and daughter (collage age) from Illinois. They flew out from Chicago for the show on her spring break and were kind and fun to laugh to and joke with. This was their first time in Santa Cruz. We also met Mzao or “Mo” who had met you early on in your career and had the desire to connect with you again. He plays with Mukagee and told us an amazing story about all the events lining up for him to sing on stage at a Hootie and the Blowfish concert, changing his musical direction to really embrace singing. He was definitely a music man at heart and played us some music on his phone – good stuff! Many of us danced around to stay warm but all were happy to be there – such a community you inspire, of really nice people. I also made up a Mraz fan, secret handshake. It’s secret but it has to do with the sun and the heart you inspire. Good job. ;-)

    I am embracing the reality that I will probably never get to meet in you but I will always continue to be a fan. If I had met you, I would have wanted to say that I am really proud of the person you have become – all around throughout your career thus far. You are a brilliant sun and human being with a clear purpose in this life. We are actually very close in age, you are my elder and have brought a lot of light into the dark corners of my own world. When you come on stage, you cast the dark clouds to the side and create rainbows. (Cheesy but true) We got to see many rainbows last night with you and Raining Jane.

    Thanks for your efforts and keeping it real. I hope the rest of your tour is a tremendous success and will one of the first to buy your new album when it is available.

    Namaste-

  • Thank you for the advice. I, too, would like to start a blog. I think it’s important to express goodness as much as one can into this universe.

    I love watching your live concert performances where you lift the vibrations of your audience and have them ::mmm:: along. It’s like mass meditation. lol
    Maybe one day I will learn to appreciate meditating, but for now I am just grateful to be a free spirit.

    One of my favorite songs is, “Live High,” because it reminds me that though my home is on the surface, I am still a universe.

    You tend to always share/sing the words I need to hear in every particular moment, and so I hope you do not mind that all of my focus and attention is on you. You are the perfect example of who I want to be, minus the singing (i would replace that art with dancing, lyrical to be exact)

    One dream I would like to achieve is to create a lyrical dance to “Live High” (that one is on the bucket list)I’ve had that dream for quite a while now; accomplishment: better late than never.
    I would love to start dancing right away, but my priority is to eat healthy, get my body in a state that matches my mind, and slowly but surely, I am working on freeing myself from earthy addictions, for I had let myself go in the past.

    Ive embarrassed myself completely in the past week or so, but that doesn’t bother me, at least not as much as it should, because I know my intentions were in the right place, I just have an illness called bipolar that makes it difficult to focus. Again, thank you for the advice.
    Ya know, maybe we’re kindred spirits or something. May sound creepy, but I’d like to think we were married in another life,.. or to be totally honest.. lol, girls gotta keep some class up in the piece, so never mind. lol

    Dude, God has got a sense of humor. My mum says, “want to make God laugh? Tell him your plans..” Yep, so true. I have got some crazy ideas of how I would like to save the planet! I just want everyone to be nicer and more kind to one another. Tolerance is important to me. Besides you, closest being to perfection this planet has to offer, no-body is perfect. I wonder why more people don’t aspire to be like the great leaders in history, or to strive for perfection..? I worry too much, you know me better than myself, you must be a mystical creature, you freaking alien you!! (i will listen to that song reccomendation) JEBUS! I called that shit, but at least that shit don’t stink.

    Can we be friends Jason? You’ve been my saving grace; I would love to meet you. That maybe could be a future goal, for now I have some work to do on myself. I feel your presence with me, not that you’re my God or anything like that. God IS LOVE, and I will walk this life serving love, because I am a server of Love. (Not as eloquent as I’d like my closing statement to be, but hey, no one is perfect, right?)

    Thank you, Jason,
    Your music has Healing Powers

    Your BIGGEST fan, *not litterally, im totally tiny

Anyway, going on a saying like: The best things in life are free can lead to eventual freedom/free-dumb.

    Mr Mraz,
    I have a question for you. I have been mostly vegetarian for quite some time with many vegan days. However, I just watched Vegucated which gave me the needed push to make the final decision to go 100% vegan.
    I have been aware of the causes and conditions for raising meat – and don’t want to support this entire industry, but where I get stuck is how do I take care of indoor cats who have lived entirely on a meat diet produced from the same places or worse? Has this come up for you too? If so, what do you in this regard for feeding your beloved, feline family members?
    Thank you and warm regards-

We are all blessed, but God has a special place in his heart for you. With much love and gratitude :-)

    My son, who is seven years old, is one of your many young fans and so he has learned a couple of your songs, as much as his grasp of English allows him to. Yesterday I heard him singing Lucky in the house and I noticed that he had some trouble with one line. I wanted to help him and I translated him the meaning of ‘I wish we had one more kiss’. He looked at me with big eyes and said: ‘OK. From NOW ON, I’ll skip this part. I mean, I REALLY don’t understand what Jason was thinking when he wrote these lyrics…’ (Don’t you worry. You’ll get it one day, I thought. And this day will come way too soon, my heart sighed.) Anyway, he still DREAMS that one day will get to see you live in concert. I guess sometimes I dream about that, too. Well, I just hope that somewhere, someday, our dreams will come true. Yes, be you!

    I have had many dreams that you were actually in. My last dream you were making your way through a crowd. Commotion ensued. When i realized the commotion was because of you, i navigated my way to where you were. By the time i got there, only 3 of us were there. You graciously agreed to take pics with us. I let the other 2 people go before me and i stood there thinking…..it’s not supposed to happen this way. I want to meet you when i have finished my other dream of getting into and completing nursing school. It’s almost my turn for a picture and i wake up. When i awoke, i was like….darn! I had my chance! I wanted to see what was going to happen next, just like those season finale nail bighter TV shows! But i think my subconscious took over and said don’t do it this way. You need to go for your real dream and then reward yourself by meeting Jason if another opportunity arises, strive for one thing at a time. And this is what i am setting out to do, thanks dream :)

    OR maybe, our biggest dreams – the ones that define us even as we try to expand our conscious existence to meet their demands – cannot manifest without sharing boundaries with other, less dominating dreams. One dream begets another, and another…all leading back to the central path of the Dreamer. Cycling (spiraling, not circling if we’re paying attention). So many shreds, like cobbles, seperated to created a whole.

    OR, maybe your sub-C mInd had a meltdown from all the focus you put on your penis. The dream did, after all, conclude with what could be interpreted as hard-on imagery (a length of paper; paper=trees; trees=wood). Damn. I should do this for a living. You’re welcome.

    Cosmic, or phallic? It always cums back to this.

    Beautiful! Talking about dreams once a while you appear in some of mine. I usually ground them in medition after waking up or over the day, means I visulise light in the characters, actions and whatsoever appeared there.
    This time we saw a being looked like an avatar from the movie avatar who jumped into a bigger roboter construction (also like the earth people in the movie use these roboters to detroy their living place).
    This one here went of to conquer the world. We stood in a field where trees have been cut.

    I pray for this earth and I totally and truely believe that all evil can be stopped in its effect by the very power which lies in us and which is always ready to be used.

    This is the first post I’ve read on here and it does strike a chord in me. Still trying to find my dream, but finding it difficult in my busy life to do that. I did quit work for a few years to go on a sailing trip around the Pacific in a small wooden boat with my now husband, and doing some good deeds along the way, and that was something special. I would love to have more time for family, for the ocean, for photography, for music, for experiencing and giving. But my time gets so filled with work and taking care of my kids (which I wish I had more time for) that there’s little time left to figure out dreams…

Moi aussi i dream a lot and i think a lot these days and can’t focuse on one thing… But for me it isnt my choice… I have to find solutions to bring money … All my thought are mostly about finding jobs ..works to do. But i also allow myself time to think about my Well being ( bien être ) . I found myself pursuing A dream I never was aware of … Creating jewelry inspired by you and your words through your songs … It brings me lots of joy to do this… Like u im a creative mind and i’m very active in that area…. Therefore i always have many ideas ..thoughts and focus on one at a time is important…

    About the dreams i saw an interesting documentary years ago about our brain activity at night. We all do have many dreams but we usually remember the Last one.

    About my jewelry i sent u one for christmas but maybe u never received it :(

    There’s this store where the creatures meet

    We are so blessed that we are made to daydream or sleep in order to find our deepest desire as it’s mostly unknown amongst the many thoughts the come heading to our dartboard in our minds…only to find that the heart is the bull’s-eye.

    Currently I find my daydreaming is changing, whereas before I would create it precisely of how I think it should go (always playing the heroic role of course), but now I just let it flow and when it pauses for input like a speed bump, I stop and smile at the images and let the ending go to the creator- nothing can create a better ending…or continuation. I don’t get to see the ending but I know it’s in good hands.

    I love your dream and interpretation, it’s right on, and thanks for sharing to us all as we get so consumed on what a path looks like for ourselves. There are many reasons why some see theirs as career based or love and spirituality (which is all three); but we all see what we want…and we all get signs to what it could be if you look up and around and as you say hear the singing calling you out.

    I get accused of making everything a sign or symbolic and it translates to outsiders as a foolish or dangerous (susceptible) to trust something not of the analytical mind as not logical. But in doing so life is a like a dream where the illogical come true in profound ways. I am presented with what I need at all times and I am open to receiving it.

    Hope to see you tonight…oh a daydream begins!

    Sometimes I get this voice that shouts..hey what the heck is Jason writing about these days? So I come here to check in…And boom..this one was meant for me. I have so many ideas, areas, thoughts, dreams… I can’t figure out which one to choose or how to focus on just one…but i know if I don’t …they could all just slip away.

    Thanks for pointing out ways to focus…there is so much noise and so much to do. With 3 kids in and out of my head all day I lose my train of thought..constantly! But you are right…I need to focus time each day to be still and really listen..I am literally afraid to dive in to deep with any of my ideas because I am afraid of success..what the hell?? That sounds ridiculous but it’s true. I wrote a song…well parts of it anyway…and the lyrics are fricking crazy…it was like I spewed them out in a mad rush before they diapered…now I need a melody…if you have any sounds you can’t find words to send them my way…It’s based on a time frame in your life anyway…so maybe you already have the melody…

    I hope you are well and loving life and doing amazing things and enjoying the warm California sun ..lucky dog!!!

    Take care!
    Rose
    I am serious about that song…

    Once in a dream I drowned in paper. The computer just kept pouring out rolls and rolls, like infinite toilet tissue until the volume covered my head and I couldn’t breathe. Then again, I’ve also dreamt I was a goldfish and a vampire, although not all in the same night. The subconscious is weird territory.

    You qualify by making direct contact without pretendes thru email or phonecall. You disqualify by respectless mindgames and ridicule. Write a song about that. I’ll send Bill the bill.

    I could be reading my SELF here today…but it appears I am reading YOU. Funny how witty your itty bitty knitty gritty gets every so often. Hopefully more and more so…often. Your fans appreciate your words of wisdom. Nice to know you are tapping “inwards/in words” … that’s just another interesting way of widening perceptions of sound patterns. Yeah, how it’s ALL done. Mind control/patterns/programs/WAVES.

    Here’s praying your sound wave patterns continue to please GOD.

    Happy to be following along and filling in the missing pieces.

    GODSLOVE to/for/as you Jason

    Hey Jason!
    In French, it can be DANSEUR if you want to describe a male dancer of ballet.
    Actually, I have to focus on language study such as English and German away from music or some other things (my mother tongue isn’t English but Chinese). I’m also interested in writing my experience or mind or emotion in my own blog, but meanwhile I always have an enjoyment of music.
    Sometimes when I feel exhausted or anxious, I’d rather go to the cinema or look up to the sky, assume that the sun can understand me and talk with it. The latter one is a little strange, right? Haha~
    I have ever dreamed something mingled in a muddle and after that, it’s a bit of tiredness for me. And they’ll happen easily when I’m busy in too many matters and I cannot solve them systematically. So, maybe you met with some problems, which made your dream at sixes and sevens. I hope you can make it just like what’s said in this JOURNAL.
    BTW, I love your humor all the way!
    LOVE
    Irene

    … perhaps the inner voice is also interconnected with other folks' inner voices, whispering and sharing dreams, encouragement and love. maybe that's how choruses truly came to be. :-)

    hoping you read the link i posted. i am going to keep writing i think. i <3 words.

    Dear Jason, they say when you can have control of your dream you in fact have control of your life, so happy to hear this as most of us are just prays of our dreams state. It is not easy to face the big bear who is running after us in a dream but realize that the dream once we know it is, is easier to end the chase and see the light within it.

    It is true that we let the external concern distract us, control of the mind and not the mind control. Putting effort into ones life such as meditation can help making the dream a reality. Thank you so much for enlightening us. Love

    “Your dream is who you really are. And it’s always there singing to you, you just have to give yourself a moment to hear it.”

    And then you go and tell me to be a baller.

    You make me dizzy when you play (with yourself).
