Once there was post-punk, post-modern, and so on. These days, I'm feeling post-everything.
Yes, the world is completely insane...filled with darkness and lies. Yes, there is a great deal of hope that things will get better. But I can no longer get emotional about any of it. I no longer feel like talking about it. Maybe this isn't such a bad thing.
I am past the celebrity lies. I no longer care about them. Politicians? Please. "News" reporters? I could care less. Doctors, lawyers, other professionals in charge of keeping this broken system going? I no longer care at all what they think, believe, or say. There is zero trust, and this is a good thing.
To be post-everything is to recognize the meaninglessness in everything. All that concerns the awakened being is in the dimension of non-matter: love, freedom, truth, energy, creativity, life, feeling, being. Here knowledge is complete. I don't need any official or guru to lead me anywhere, though there is a time in life that such teachings are essential to anyone's growth.
So these days, yes, I'm post-everything. I spend my time loving the people around me, doing my work, and creating new music. In the past month, I recorded 5 new songs. I feel like this creative outlet is a priority for me...even beyond the posts and other teachings. The most unique, perhaps the most valuable way, in which I express myself is in my songs.
It will be a very beautiful collection of new songs...with a totally different sounds, non-conventional lyrics, and in a new genre: post-everything. Probably very few people will ever hear these songs, but that's just another thing I stopped caring about.
