Journal Entry # 1
January 1st, 2010
My name is Gary David Currie. This is the first entry in my informal journal that I wish to share with whoever wants to read it. My goal is simple. I want to live in a world where humanity is at its best. Where all can be safe and where peace is the order of the day. It is simple to achieve. It will be as difficult as we make it.
I believe that any one person can change the world. One idea, one concept when acted upon can make a difference. I like many others although not enough have chosen to act rather than sit on the sidelines wishing for things to happen. Where do you stand? Do you even care? Why should you?
I will act through music, writing and speaking out. My goal is to achieve open, respectful communication.
In order for things to change we first must identify how we got in this mess in the first place. Then we can act upon a solution that will benefit us all. Most of humanity could not give 2 shits about what I am writing. We care only for ourselves. We are inherently selfish. We must recognize this and chose to be unselfish. We must recognize the truth in all matters.
The root problem is simple. We believe in and act upon lies. We do this in all areas of our lives from religions to relationships to governments. We ignore the truths to live in a fantasy world. It is this fantasy world that is the gateway to ignorance. We ignore reality. I want to know who hijacked reality and how do we get it back?
Let me present to you this simple myth. All musicians and artists are rich. As a independent artist I have put my own money into making our music and all areas related to this project. I want the music to be heard so I have no problem with people downloading it and passing it on to others but I am not rich I am just a working stiff like you who also loves music and I feel I have something to say. Artists need the support of their fans so if you like our music or what we are trying to achieve support us by buying the cd.
I have a plan that I will share with you. I want peace. In fact I believe that the majority of humanity wants peace so why do we keep listening to the wrong people. If you have seen the movie Avatar you should have been blown away by every aspect of it but I want to focus on one of the messages of the movie. We are destroying our very existence by biting the hand that feeds us. We are abusing the earth and I think it has had enough. For all of you out there who believe that we are not or that global warming does not exist or that the resourses will last forever you are lying to yourself. Time to wake up, the facts speak for themselves. Again we believe in lies or as I like to put it we are not acknowledging the truth.
I do believe that the biggest lie today and a major source of our problems is the belief in superstitions and myths especially religion in all its forms. This is why I concentrated on this topic in our music. We must get past this and enter into a new time of reality.
This journal will be a reflection of my thoughts with the hope that just one person will see something that will be the spark that will move humanity forward in a positive direction.
I will end this entry with some lyrics from a song that will be on the next album.
Let this Be the Moment.
Let this be the moment that we become one race, the human race. The moment every man woman and child is proud to be human. The moment we set aside our petty disputes, our gods and let reason and common sense lead the day. The moment we let our differences unite us.
The moment that we have compassion, empathy and pride to be part of one race. The moment we have no enemies ,that we value the weakest of us as we do the strongest of us. The moment we would see it more valuable to save a life than to take a life. The moment the planet values us instead of despising us.
WE ONLY HAVE THIS MOMENT DON”T WASTE IT.
Seek the truth always
Gary David Currie
