“… love, sex, romance are sides of the triangle of achievement building genius.” “The blending of love and sex is the most intense and burning … and combined with romance, the obstructions in the finite mind are removed …and genius is born.” “The major positive emotions : desire, faith, love, sex, enthusiasm, romance, hope.” – Napoleon Hill (from the book: Think And Grow Rich) This is a classic and excellent book about reinforcement of positive emotions and mental energy and dispelling negative self defeating energy.
I have also been giving thought about why it is that one can continue to feel an emotion deeply inside yet have clear evidence in front of ones self in a rational way to the lack of logic for such a feeling. For the sake of self – growth , this in and of itself is a clear case for honest personal examination. This subject is one that I am exploring on the next of the series of the Disburden Disciple cds. On the finished album, I will have made these discoveries with the help of several singers whose voices I find inspiring.
I have decided to make the most personal , raw and unpolished rough drafts of a select few of the pieces from this album available on cd-r. ‘Dislocation’ (name of this cd-r) is illustrating the process of how this next album is coming together. Again, these are in no way the finished mixes or arrangements but they do show a ‘behind the scenes’ naked and vulnerable seed.
Also, I ‘ve been listening to a Japanese import of the 2 cd of Aphrodite’s Child ‘666’ project composed by Vangelis Papathanassiou , and the daily choir of birds outside the window.
