The genius in Stevie Wonder's music lies in his inability to see. Our eyes capture every detail, soundbite, structure, person and object that crosses our path.
All of that is filtered through our intellect and without an understanding of how our mind works the effects can be detrimental.
Without that understanding, you suffer the onslaught of thoughts, which manifest into self conflict, which create anxiety. If you're happy about something now, simply wait a few minutes and your mood will change. Worry, happy, worry, happy, worry, happy. And our response to that is to occupy our time. But the minds faculties are incredibly powerful.
Occupying ourselves does not work and you don't have to take my word for it. You know, because we are all affected by it.
It comes up in our conversations and our subtle small talk. Whispers almost as to not alert ourselves of this feeling.
I've had to shift the nature of my life because I was seeing too much and was affected by too much. I believed I was stronger than my environment, but that's untruth. Like food, any intake will affect my judgment. In limiting my exposure, the genuine feelings of creativity and inspiration arose.
It recalls the term Signal To Noise ratio where the signal is always emitting, whether you can hear the signal or not depends on the noise in that environment. I discuss this and more in my memoir titled, "It's Right Where You Left It".
