A lot of things sort of fell apart a long time ago.
Hasn’t been a whole lot of singing and dancing since then. Not nearly as much as there should have been.
But people are starting to remember things these days. Things are coming back to people.
So we were thinking, it’s time to get the band back together.
Here’s the short and the sweet of it. Once, long ago, we were all part of a group.
Sort of like a band.
We played music, sang, danced, and got along famously with everyone.
Even the animals. All living things. It was very exciting, delightful and challenging all at once.
We were all busy creating and evolving, uncreating and re-evolving. A rhythm, ever advancing – everything and everyone – all the species together.
To do this, to understand ourselves, we were, of course, more than the humans we seem to be today.
This is because a terrible thing happened to our planet and to us, long before history-writing began, but I’m not going to dwell on that right now.
What happened was, we could no longer hear the inner music, so we could no longer play the outer music. The band, in other words, fell apart.
After that, the band kept getting gigs – who else was there? – but no music was played. There was only arguing and fighting. Selfishness and deep fear of lack had struck everybody nearly dumb & senseless.
There was no real music for a long, long time.
But now, things are changing.
A lot of people hear the inner music again these days. Sometimes it’s very soft, sometimes louder. And a lot of people have started remembering things. How it used to be. How the good times were, when the whole house – the whole house, was rockin’.
We remember – deep down within us, where the truth and the real, still exist.
How it used to be.
The gigs. The venues. The tunes. The singing together.
We’re getting the band back together.
If you want ro play in the band, if you want to sing and dance and rock, start rehearsing.
A few tips for doing this – a little of the music – is in the last chapter of the book. Scales, practice pieces. Rhythms. Meets-and-greets with some of the older band members. What they’ve been up to all this time.
So it’s up to you: practice or don’t practice. But in or out, we’re getting the band back together.
