Listened to this playlist while working today, and I am in love. It has the perfect funky groovy vibe that I like added to modern beats. I’ll be listening to this for a while.
I’ve been thinking a lot about passion lately, and how we are, whether consciously or subconsciously, always trying to find something to live for- something that is worthwhile of our time. For some the drive is parties, sex, and pleasure. For some the drive is wealth and prestige. Maybe the drive to create something world changing fuels those in need of a perceived state of fulfillment. For some, the worthwhile thing might be in figuring out how not to need something that is worthwhile in order to be fulfilled. Even my typing this is one of many attempts at searching, of trying to discover whether or not writing & blogging leaves me feeling alive, fulfilled, and passionate. We are all in a constant search for passion- for spark. And lately I’ve realized that it is the search which keeps us moving, and not in the discovery of the “ultimate thing.” We’ve heard it before, and it’s a cliche for a reason, but there’s a difference between acknowledging a cliche life-lesson by reading or hearing about it, and having the revelation yourself. I’ve learned to keep searching, and to trust that the passion will come. The day we stop searching, the day that we surrender to the things in life that make us comfortable, is the day that we start to die.
I dedicate this to track #8, Searchin’ (G E N I U S Remix) by Roy Ayers.
Roy & G E N I U S found their passion.
Enjoy, and search on.
