Your consciousness is basically your ideal state – letting go, lightening up, being whoever you are. On many occasions, through music I have been able to achieve this ideal. Life (living up to the status quo) teaches us to be aggressive and overly ambitious, virtue (purity) teaches us to be gentle and kind. My consciousness has enlightened me to do away with ‘life’ at times and embrace virtue.
Simply put, your consciousness refers to being at peace with yourself. Conscious songwriters and musicians:
“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for”
“Don’t gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold…”
“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!”
“We all must live our lives always feeling, always thinking the moment has arrived.”
“People’s real hopes and dreams can be distorted and misdirected and packaged until you’re not sure what you really want or what you even really need.”
“Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.”
“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”
