Songs of Endless Love
With vocal music (songs), it is slightly easier to define the change required for it to fit into the new direction. As with cinema, the themes can remain pretty much the same. And as with cinema, behind each song should be a subtext that conveys a message of unity and expresses both desires in reality—to give and to receive.
Music is an expression of the self, of the deepest emotions of the artist. Therefore, if music is to convey a message of unity and balance between giving and receiving, it is very important that the performing artist be well aware of how these forces interact. Because we cannot fake how we express our inner world, artists must personally experience the unity and the interplay and connectedness of the two forces, if they are to convey them artistically.
As a result, every song should convey a new sense of freshness and vitality. There is no need to create new genres. We already have a wonderful variety: pop, hip-hop, rock n’ roll, jazz, classical music, and ethnic music of every type. All are genuine expressions of our inner being, and there is no need to change them. All we need to change is the underlying message: instead of focusing on a couple’s troubled relationship, the words can highlight their efforts to discover the unity in nature.
As we learn about the giving side of nature, we will also be able to create new texts for songs. Such texts can express dialogues between the desire to give and the desire to receive as they occur between people or in nature. If you think about it, the constant drive of the desire to give to find ways to express itself through the desire to receive is very similar to the way a man seeks new ways to express his love for his woman (or the other way around). What could be more inspiring than to dress that ache of love in lyrics and adorn it with a melody?
