Wisdom to Musicians

An interesting passage in the apocrapha gospels about fashion and appearance


Here is something that doesnt really have to do with music but it does have to do with fashion and the apperance of humans who lived righteous lifes. Its an interesting passage in the apocrapha book of the apocalypse of peter. It explains the high priests who lived righteous lifes have an appearance almost to beautiful to look at . They arnt tall dark and handsome to say the least and yes they are white men . Yet it is pretty spectacular the way they are described.

http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/text/apocalypsepeter-roberts.html



4. And furthermore the Lord said: Let us go into the mountain: Let us pray.. And going with him, we, the twelve disciples, begged that he would show us one of our brethren, the righteous who are gone forth out of the world, in order that we might see of what manner of form they are, and having taken courage, might also encourage the men who hear us.

6. And as we prayed, suddenly there appeared two men standing before the Lord towards the East, on whom we were not able to look; 7, for there came forth from their countenance a ray as of the sun, and their raiment was shining, such as eye of man never saw; for no mouth is able to express or heart to conceive the glory with which they were endued, and the beauty of their appearance. 8. And as we looked upon them, we were astounded; for their bodies were whiter than any snow and ruddier than any rose; 9, and the red thereof was mingled with the white, and I am utterly unable to express their beauty; 10, for their hair was curly and bright and seemly both on their face and shoulders, as it were a wreath woven of spikenard and divers-coloured flowers, or like a rainbow in the sky, such was their seemliness.

11. Seeing therefore their beauty we became astounded at them, since they appeared suddenly. 12. And I approached the Lord and said: Who are these? 13. He saith to me: These are your brethren the righteous, whose forms ye desired to see. 14. And I said to him: And where are all the righteous ones and what is the aeon in which they are and have this glory?

15. And the Lord showed me a very great country outside of this world, exceeding bright with light, and the air there lighted with the rays of the sun, and the earth itself blooming with unfading flowers and full of spices and plants, fair-flowering and incorruptible and bearing blessed fruit. 16. And so great was the perfume that it was borne thence even unto us. 17. And the dwellers in that place were clad in the raiment of shining angels and their raiment was like unto their country; and angels hovered about them there. 18. And the glory of the dwellers there was equal, and with one voice they sang praises alternately to the Lord God, rejoicing in that place. 19. The Lord saith to us: This is the place of your high-priests, the righteous men.


A Musicians Honor

We all have honor in some degree. We are born with honor. A musicians honor is more serious than modern markets would make it seem. Each institute is developed on a a principle of honor. The institute of each nation uses honor to set a standard , to set an example of what achievements create success for the nation and to build its founding precepts. Mankind can be honored for many different things. The first man on the moon, The inventor of the airplane, The Nobel Peace Prize, starting foundations that aid society in making civil progress. There is alot of honor that has nothing to do with music. The institutes of europe used to honor musicians such as Bach and Mozart with great honor and they were renowned . Yet they were not honored for anything other then their music. The militaries highest honor is the medal of honor which no one gets unless they die saving lifes or doing some heroic act of war. Its not likely that a musician will be honored as someone of authority such as a Pope is over the church. Yet there is honor that the Pope will never have that the musicians who wrote the praise and worship do have.

Even in modern times the institute has its own honor that it bestows to its musicians in various degrees. Yet those musicians in our modern time may still be dishonored by the markets of society. So there is a different principality to the world of music then in earlier times of societies past. Traditional music is still bringing honor to musicians of earlier times who had recieved honor for their music works by earlier society. Not many rock musicians will be honored in that way. Although; some of the pioneers music may always be cover banded unless made illegal due to the way they anarchist made themselves known using sex,drugs,and every seduction they could make sell in the markets.

There are alot of masters of music skill yet only a few become famous. No matter how casual a person dresses who listens to rock and roll or jazz or any other kind of music there is alot of formalities to living. No matter how much a musician changes their name to strange nicknames or stage names there is formalities that cannot not be dissolved. A musicians honor even in the nightclubbing world has formalities hidden by some but always present. A musician cannot in his own power change the fact he is human and that even Kings are only honored by a formal process. Even playing backyard picnic concerts you cannot change their is a formal principality and formalities to just being alive. Those formalities are what make a musician stand apart from the rest of the musicians. So when you choose youre name and make it a legal process registering youre band with a label or copyrighting youre music its a formality setting you apart from the other musicians. The legal process is a formal record of that formality. If a musician understands the formalities that make him or her a host to his or her listeners it is more likely that musician will stand apart from his or her competitors in the markets.

Figuring out why youre listeners honor youre music as you get started and learning to understand what that honors value is will help any musician succeed.

Also finding out why people dishonor youre music and making the corrections or improvements will also help any musician succeed. Get the facts !! Know why youre honored or not honored!!.

Unlike many other products music is more uncensored for its content then say a box of cereal or a bottle of glue. The standards are not regulated the same. There cannot be poison in cereal that people eat without breaking the law but there can be poisonious content to the minds and hearts of listeners in music. There cannot be dangerous products in glue without a warning symbol and instructions on what to do if the user gets the glue on them. Yet the dangerous content in music that gets into the minds and hearts of their listeners doesnt have the same kind of warning . Some music is rated but still not regulated the way other products are.

This is where honor plays a big role in the actuall role of musicians and their music in society. The grammies and all the awards in the corporate world of music are a formal honor but in no way represent the individual. Our hearts and minds as listeners teally arnt products or just a market. A musician can be dishonored by the institute in every way but still honored by listeners and succeed at least as much as their listeners or more.

Honor is lorded by some realms of society and hated by other realms. Some honor is vital to the security and well being of society. When a person strikes someone with malicious intentions that person is dishonored by the person he or she struck as a friend or allie or harmless member of society. Also all those who took offense to the act dishonor that person. If a musicians music strikes a blow against society and has listeners that are entertained by it the formal stature of that musicians success becomes against the raw harmony and social forces that keep society from becoming a savage or barbaric darkness. Though modern music has many dark hosts and they succeed the formalities to life are only dark to those who dont see the light of to it. If you strike someone some how that strike is returned with some act of force. Although a lighter strike like a slap may be shunned or forgiven the harder you strike the harder the consequences can be. The more harm you do the more harm you are considered not because of you disagree with people but because you do harm to people. If you are hurting people in private but gained power from youre fans support there is still that private cruelty you lord and each human is not always as powerfull as the other but they are equal in the measure of rights. For example Ghandi was not as mighty as Hulk Hogan but didnt Ghandi have rights wether he could fight for them or not. He had the same needs as Hulk Hogan but couldnt fight anyone for those things he needs. So when a musician abuses their power or influences their listeners to harm people its against the true honor of being human they cannot make themselves into a god or a higher being then those they harm.

There may be no right or wrong way to succeed financially when it comes to who has money or not but most honor cannot not be bought . The honor money is about in itself is financial honor . A soldier will become a hero in war yet may always be poor or even homeless . So there is more to succeeding then just money.

An example of someone who succeeded a different way then most musicians is Lawrence Welk. He was a musician for 30 or more years playing his accordion on live radio broadcasts and at barn dances from the 1920's to the 1950's. He finally got his big break at the Grande Ole Opera House and from that performance got his own show which was on the air for over 30 years more of his career. Though according to Road Side America he hated his parents and left home hating farming hating his parents and never spoke to them again. After many years of enduring and learning the wrong and rights to living he managed to have his own family and became a host to many families in the united states for alot of human years. He didnt become a success overnight or in the prime of his youth yet He had alot longer of a career then alot of overnight successes. Not only did he have a long career he had a good name and still I dont know of anything bad society can say about him. So doing things right is alot more important then success overnight. Its not over till its over and trying to succeed financially past the rest of society is not an easy task. Lawrence had a family and years of living experience before he succeeded . He didnt get divorced and got to enjoy the whole life and all its rewards . Many musicians live so careless and spend so much time trying to become a success overnight they dont experience a whole life.

Another example of how a musicians honor is not alll just riches. Back in the 60's John Lennon said the Beatles are more popular than Jesus Christ. At the time Governments were established by the church rulers still attended formal ceremonies every community still had its communities of catholic and christian churches. Little did John realize that his music wasnt even as popular at the time as even the music of traditional works such as Mozart and Beethoven or Bach. Their music was still being taught in the schools and played on the radio every day the beatles music was on the radio yet they were dead centuries ago. Now that the Beatles are dead still musicians learn the works of Bach and Mozart still the institutes honor it. Yet not the beatles and still Bach and Mozart are much greater than todays Madonna and Todays Van Halen , or any Ozzy OsBourne, Metallica ect. Then there is the gross reality that while John Lennon was saying that each sunday around the Globe the music of the saints who wrote the catholic praise and worship was ritualistically still sang. The honor of those musicians still today on every saturday and sunday and sometimes on other days is sang and their music honored more then John Lennons and more than MaDonna's more then Randy Travis more than Elvis more then any of those musicians really more than Mozart or Bachs. Who more than likely had performed the music of the saints at one time or another. In modern times a man John Michael Talbot has an office to anoint catholic musicians . Not manyr musicians can recieve the honor from the church John anoints them with. To get that honor a musician has to be a monk for 4 years , swear a vows  , and become a priest or monk. So there is even today a different success and honor than most realize who perform music.



Although most musicians will never have the honor a king has or the Pope or President or any great office like it. There is one musician in societies history who did. I am choosing to write about this musician because he is still honored today as a greater musician then any other who lived. King David of the Tribe of Judah had 7 thrones in early Israel before Christ. David was a musician who herded sheep. A king at the time in his land was feeling disrought and vexed in his spirits. The king asked one of his servants who was the best musician in the land and the servant told him David the shepard was the best player of a stringed instrument. David was called upon to play for the king. The king decided he wanted David to serve his courts kind of like someone called upon to serve his country.
David slew a Giant man in battle and was rewarded by being given a title and rank as chief over soldiers, He was so great in battle he defeated more soldiers than the king, the king had david play his liar for him whenever he was vexed with evil spirits. Saul plotted to Kill David out of his jeolousy for David's success in battle. The kings son helped David escape execution. . Because David had faith in God and was a faithfull servant of the Lord the Lord helped David and not the King who had not been as faithfull. David soon was made king by the people and the priests. He ended up with 7 thrones. He had become a success overnight a different way and he wasnt used to the luxeries that come along with it. Even though he had a heart like Gods and that was what he was so well known to his people for and why God helped him . He indulged and had over 20 wives and several concubine. He was caught dancing naked in his tent. He sent a man to the front lines to be killed so that he could sleep with his wife. He did all that and still was told by the Lord he would have a throne forever . He wrote the psalms that are still today the only real way anyone has a real understanding of Gods way and a primary example of worship to the Lord. He was one of the only two people told they would have a throne forever that the bible tells us about. His place is even higher than all the apostles who the Popes follow after who themselves had not taken wives some and had not been known for as many evils but his Great passion to worship God and his Heart knew the Lords ways even though he had sinned so for whatever mysterious reason a musician was given the highest place or one of the highest places ever given to mankind.




purpose of music

Music is more than just an art of fantasy teen idols. The music industry is one of the leading industries in technology today. You're local music shop makes available the most advanced technology any retail store will have available to the general public. You wont find an any hardware store or even in youre average computer store as much technology available to a consumer. Even radio shack wont have as much technology as guitar center. So if you believe music is just about MaDonna and Menudo or britney spears you have alot to learn.

I spent a bit of time trying to self educate about the physics of vibration you have to seriously be a genious to comprehend alot of it. The advancements of music technology are great and modern science makes a big role in modern music. However that is nothing compared to the endless knowledge of the human instrument. Humans are by far a higher form of intelligence than a machine. Music is so important to humans that it is the art of life and living it invokes.

There are three elements to mankinds work. The first is Energy, The second is Environment, the third is law. These three elements are the focus and limits of our work. The sun gives energy to the grass and plants , the plants the animals and humans eat the energy, we also get electricity from the sun and the sun evaporates the water which makes the clouds which rains more water so on and so forth. We build our environment wether city or rural . Even the cars have to do with either energy or environment. Then there is law the standards and guidelines , the justice and preservation of what we do. Music is unlike any of these thus not really work. If mankind where merely machine or animal work would be our only focus. However the energy inside a human is more than just electricity or a combustible engine. We have a soul and a spirit. Our hearts can embrace high inner realms of liberty that music invokes and is host to. All work is only as rewarding as its product. so if you cut wood the reward is wood. Musics reward is the heart and minds power and the very life we live. That is irreplaceable.

The Nazi's were very anti life. Hitler made a prison out of Mozarts castle. I read a book about a man who escaped from the prison hitler made out of mozarts castle. The man dug under the chapel to escape . The chapel had fewer guards there so no one heard the digging. Its kind of strange though , The chapel had to do with the soul and spirit yet so does music and it was a musicians castle with a chapel both about the freedom of the soul and spirit but Hitler made a prison there.

A man closely associated with Hitler who was a big part of the anti life teachings which were contrary to the world of music is Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (October 15, 1844 – August 25, 1900). His teachings involved such an nihilistic view that he taught humans were only like machines or animals. Animals or Machines that could only be whatever they trained to be and the only importance was that training like an animal or machine. I guess he wasnt much of a music fan.





A musician can instrument a high energy that motivates and brings such enjoyment to the hearts and minds of his or her listeners that the life inside them is estatic and overjoyed with glee. The listeners very life can be instrumented by listening to the sounds. In work we must labor hard to reap success. Our bodies and minds must work and the only importance to what our minds and bodies do is that work. The military is good example of that. Yet the liberty music is host to is not like any other recreation. Music makes every breath the listener breaths a glorious moment of their life. Standing still a listerner can reach peak levels of excitement and the life inside them experience great freedom. From meditational music to heavy metal there is no end to the inner world of music. The purpose of music is host to all that is a humans heart to experience thus giving it a place all its own.

In modern day the recreational realms are lorded much like ancient greece only in a larger arena. The music of modern pop and rock is definately very recreational.The human heart is real and the power to music loses its power when it is not real life it is host to. If we fantasize or live against ourselves and do not understand our own importance we cannot work well or understand the importance to our work. There has to be a harmony to the musicians music with the true existance of his or her listeners. The purpose of music is a fine art and a high art. Its understanding this art that determines wether someone is great or not great. If it is greatly understood that musician is great if it is not greatly understood that musician is not great . so the more you understand the purpose of music and the power of music the more great of a musician you will be.




Music Talent vs Justice

The only measure of justice in this world seems to be money. You take the trash out for the neighbor or mow his lawn and want what in return as a just payment?. Money!!. You goto work and spend hours doing nothing for yourself the only justice to it is money!!!. I know in the 38 years of my life I have met alot of people and when people have talent usually they want some kind of justice for having talent in an untalented world. Some people use thier talent to help others and what it accomplishes makes them someone to others which is justice to them. John Michael Talbot a Monk is the official ordinate who ordains catholic musicians and annoints them as priest musician. He has sworn a vow of poverty along with those who he anoints. They have honor from the highest authority in Rome . Even to kings they are honored musicians. Yet they dont do it for money but to worship God and serve the church as musicians. There is a higher justice . To have talent we need wisdom not just skill to succeed. There are many principalities to justice. Basically people with talent have many options. It doesnt take music talent to build a bridge or become an architect. People are millionaires from inheriting wealth. Even from just lying to people and ripping them off. Lets face it there is alot of crime and politicians serve justice to whoever has the most money. In music there is so much rebellion in modern times. There is drug dealers who use night clubs and concerts to market their drugs. They also put up funds to produce events. Every nightclub owner wants justice his way. Every woman who can sleep with a man wants justice her way. Each fan wants justice his or her way. Keith Green the first real christian evangel rock singer didnt charge money for his concerts so everyone could afford to hear him sing. He is a legend today and millions still join his ministry he left behind to his wife and kids. He died at age 28 and only got to perform a few short years yet his generosity and message in his music lives on today. Justice for youre music talent isnt as simple as taking the garbage out. Youre instrumenting life when you entertain others with youre music. The lifes you are entertaining are a motley sort and the justice may even be to dark to measure out.. The justice money represents is to each person a matter of their own dominion over their personal business. The justice of every musician may conflict with the justice of every producer. The money wants justice for the money. Every little thing becomes a larger thing to those who earn money from those little things. Those little things become more to some when you earn more money or earn more recognition and prestige. Understanding success is to also understand justice. You have to understand some measure of justice to have any measure of power to perform and really be someone. the presidents are known for a high office of justice, There is corruption in every realm of society and for one person to have more justice than the other there needs to be justice taken from others. some people want a higher place than others and are willing to take justice away from anyone to gain more justice for themselves so that they have more power and money. Music is an energy product that doesnt come from the trees or from the sun or from the forest. It comes from the musician. What we instrument has a variety of rewards and the measure of that reward is what you need to understand to understand why you are or are not getting anywhere in the music business



Who's who in the music business

Music is strange . In a world of principle vs rebellion what is the final result. At the highest places in the world like the kings palaces or the vatican what do you have as a result of youre own success in music. Do you serve the powers of the officials or instrument a freedom of youre own that dont belong to other people. How can you be a host in such a huge world with arena's that date back to rome and greece. In the fabric of society still the roman, greek, and jewish fashion of social structure and principality have woven themselves into each nation. As a musician becoming someone is at times dark. To be known in in a world without knowing youre own is tough. Then who do you become?. Are you still you?. Have you become a greek , or roman myth or jewish legend?. Have you become an american dream or a fantasy?. Did you really understand what you were doing?. Do you understand yet?. Do you have a mission or purpose?. Are you new world orders key to the kingdoms of this world?. Have you become as a puppet in some production masters private lair?. Have you yet sold yourself as the merchandise of entertainment and a become an instrument of the dark spirits that seduce and tempt society to indulge in their fantasies. Which ever evil drives you to success , Love of money, beauty of woman , or the drugs and alcohol. Have you a sincere motivation true to life or do you only love money and know no other disclipline other than youre love for pleasures nd luxury money buys. In the fountain of youre youth are you prime example or prime contender against the true fellowship to life. Have you beaten yourself black and blue to prove youre worthy of success or did you seek wisdom and work hard with skill and diligence outsmarting youre competition?. How did you become successfull was it against life or for?. Have you a life or did you sell it?. If you havnt succeeded have you any real understanding how to succeed.?. What have you succeeded at?. Have you ever surpassed others at anything in school or at work or in the community?. Do you really understand what it is to be great and have you ever proven you are greater in any recognizable way?.

a musicians identity in the world of music

The powers of this world wield an identity that the architect and founders of this worlds principalities set in place long before the prowless of modern masters. A musician who makes a name for him or herself makes a name in a world that is cast in many crowns and many cultures. The modern face of each society is of a fabric that was woven in the same fashion of ancient society. The Roman, Greek and Jewish cultures have been woven into almost every society. So like an ancient Gladiator of Rome or a Greek mythological god people are imaged in many aura's of dominion that is to Glorify the heritage of the known and illusion the heritage of the unknown. To be a musician you have to ask yourself who are you in this world. Who is the world to you?. The darkest communities may have some ruin you can bring life to. The oldest cultures may be entertained by youre modern musical host. Its up to each musician to discipline themselves to not become the ruin that is already at the bottom of each society.

There are many known musicians who's road to fame was not even one they had control over. They became known for being an image that was more of a fantasy role then a formal host to society. Selling their own identity to the worlds markets to gain wealth over night or making a name for being against the same yoke that holds the only truth to a persons identity.

If joe blow musician beats his neighbor and rips off his employer he is always joe blow who did that. All the wonderfull entertaining nights cant change that. I joe blow raped a fan and hid the fact he is always that person. If joe blow lied to his fans or to the media he is always he who did that. Joe blow blatantly harrassed his girlfriend and his family he is still joe blow but his name becomes how to identify the person who did those acts. Life is so universal Joe may overcome those evils by making so many people happy in his performances that those stains on his name are hidden eventually joe becomes a famous musician but he's hidden so much he has to hide from his real identity. There is alot to becoming known in this world .

Being wealthy isnt the only success in the world of music. A musician can be known for many things just like any human only at more of an advantage because he or she is a host to so many people. John Michael Talbot is an example of someone who did not use the world to become known as a musician yet he is honored all the way to the highest principalites as a leader of catholic worship. John michael talbot is a monk who's years of catholic folk leadership placed him as the official who anoints priests who want to become honored musicians of the catholic church. Another example is Keith Green he died at the age of 28 but became a legend not for his wealth and power . Keith Became a legend for his love for his music ministry and his generosity to his listeners. He held large concerts for free so everyone could afford to hear his music . He left a ministry behind that his wife still operates and has over a million followers still today. You as a musician have to decide wether you are going to be a greek myth or legend, a roman gladiator or leader of the roman or greek orgy, a advocate of jewish diety or the fellowhsip of arms that is lorded by the secret socities private lairs. Its all within youre own power to decide and whatever isnt within youre own power its the power of life that you can embrace to become known for whatever good you can instrument and to become a host of real liberty.













Holy texts explaining the inner world . spirit and soul

TESTAMENT OF REUBEN

The First-Born Son of Jacob and Leah

CHAP. I.

Reuben, the first-born son of Jacob and Leah. The man of experience counsels against fornication and points out the ways in. which men are most apt to fall into error

THE Copy of the Testament of Reuben, even the commands which he gave his sons before he died in the hundred and twenty-fifth year of his life.

2 Two years after the death of Joseph his brother, when Reuben fell ill, his sons and his sons' sons were gathered together to visit him.

3 And he said to them: My children, behold I am dying, and go the way of my fathers.

4 And seeing there Judah, and Gad, and Asher, his brethren, he said to them: Raise me up that I may tell to my brethren and to my children what things I have hidden in my heart, for

p. 221

behold now at length I am passing away.

5 And he arose and kissed them, and said unto them: Hear, my brethren, and do ye my children, give ear to Reuben your father, in the commands which I give unto you.

6 And behold I call to witness against you this day the God of heaven, that ye walk not in the sins of youth and fornication, wherein I was poured out, and defiled the bed of my father Jacob.

7 And I tell you that he smote me with a sore plague in my loins for seven months; and had not my father Jamb prayed for me to the Lord, the Lord would have destroyed me.

8 For I was thirty years old when I wrought the evil thing before the Lord, and for seven months I was sick unto death.

9 And after this I repented with set purpose of my soul for seven years before the Lord.

10 And wine and strong drink I drank not, and flesh entered not into my mouth, and I ate no pleasant food; but I mourned over my sin, for it was great, such as had not been in Israel.

11 And now hear me, my children, what things I saw concerning the seven spirits of deceit, when I repented.

12 Seven spirits therefore are appointed against man, and they are the leaders in the works of youth.

13 And seven other spirits are given to him at his creation, that through them should be done every work of man.

14 The first is the spirit of life, with which the constitution of man is created.

15 The second is the sense of sight, with which ariseth desire.

16 The third is the sense of hearing, with which cometh teaching.

17 The fourth is the sense of smell, with which tastes are given to draw air and breath.

18 The fifth is the power of speech, with which cometh knowledge.

19 The sixth is the sense of taste, with which cometh the eating of meats and drinks; and by it strength is produced, for in food is the foundation. of strength.

20 The seventh is the power of procreation and sexual intercourse, with which through love of pleasure sins enter in.

21 Wherefore it is the last in order of creation, and the first in that of youth, because it is filled with ignorance, and leadeth the youth as a blind man to a pit, and as a beast to a precipice.

22 Besides all these there is an eighth spirit of sleep, with which is brought about the trance of nature and the of death.

23 With these spirits are mingled the spirits of error.

24 First, the spirit of fornication is seated in the nature and in the senses;

25 The second, the spirit of insatiableness in the belly;

26 The third, the spirit of fighting, in the liver and gall.

27 The fourth is the spirit of obsequiousness and chicanery, that through officious attention one may be fair in seeming.

28 The fifth is the spirit of pride, that one may be boastful and arrogant.

29 The sixth is the spirit of lying, in perdition and jealousy to practise deceits, and concealments from kindred and friends.

30 The seventh is the spirit of injustice, with which are thefts and acts of rapacity, that a man may fulfil the desire of his heart; for injustice worketh together with the other spirits by the taking of gifts.

31 And with all these the spirit of sleep is joined which is that of error and fantasy.

p. 222

32 And so perisheth every young man, darkening his mind from the truth, and not understanding the law of God, nor obeying the admonitions of his fathers, as befell me also in my youth.

33 And now, my children, love the truth, and it will preserve you: hear ye the words of Reuben your father.







this next passage explains a bit about the soul



The Gospel according to Mary Magdalene



chapter 5

4) When Mary said this, she turned their hearts to the Good, and they began to discuss the words of the Savior.

5) Peter said to Mary, Sister we know that the Savior loved you more than the rest of woman.

6) Tell us the words of the Savior which you remember which you know, but we do not, nor have we heard them.

7) Mary answered and said, What is hidden from you I will proclaim to you.

8) And she began to speak to them these words: I, she said, I saw the Lord in a vision and I said to Him, Lord I saw you today in a vision. He answered and said to me,

9) Blessed are you that you did not waver at the sight of Me. For where the mind is there is the treasure.

10) I said to Him, Lord, how does he who sees the vision see it, through the soul or through the spirit?

11) The Savior answered and said, He does not see through the soul nor through the spirit, but the mind that is between the two that is what sees the vision and it is [...]

(pages 11 - 14 are missing from the manuscript)



Chapter 8:

. . . it.

10) And desire said, I did not see you descending, but now I see you ascending. Why do you lie since you belong to me?

11) The soul answered and said, I saw you. You did not see me nor recognize me. I served you as a garment and you did not know me.

12) When it said this, it (the soul) went away rejoicing greatly.

13) Again it came to the third power, which is called ignorance.

14) The power questioned the soul, saying, Where are you going? In wickedness are you bound. But you are bound; do not judge!

15) And the soul said, Why do you judge me, although I have not judged?

16) I was bound, though I have not bound.

17) I was not recognized. But I have recognized that the All is being dissolved, both the earthly things and the heavenly.

18) When the soul had overcome the third power, it went upwards and saw the fourth power, which took seven forms.

19) The first form is darkness, the second desire, the third ignorance, the fourth is the excitement of death, the fifth is the kingdom of the flesh, the sixth is the foolish wisdom of flesh, the seventh is the wrathful wisdom. These are the seven powers of wrath.

20) They asked the soul, Whence do you come slayer of men, or where are you going, conqueror of space?

21) The soul answered and said, What binds me has been slain, and what turns me about has been overcome,

22) and my desire has been ended, and ignorance has died.

23) In a aeon I was released from a world, and in a Type from a type, and from the fetter of oblivion which is transient.

24) From this time on will I attain to the rest of the time, of the season, of the aeon, in silence.

`something I wrote a few years ago to help musicians focus

A MUSICIANS BIBLE







Introduction







These are my words to musicians of the world. My intentions in writing this book are not to start a cult or religion. The holy bible is a book of mystery as much as it is for salvation. I hoped after writing the book Heavy Metal Alchemy. That I could share more of my understanding and help provide counsel and wisdom to other musicians in this world. This is not a book of technology. This is a book of counsel and I hope an understanding of the depths,widths and heights to being a musician in the world. When I was 19 I read Solomon’s wisdom for the first time. Each day I would read a proverb and write out how it applied to my life here in modern day.. This helped me to understand what wisdom was for and its value. I continued to seek understanding of my life and the way of life that is most valuable to my mind, heart, body, and soul. This is my attempt to share some of that wisdom and the words of my own understanding to help all musicians ponder a life worth living.























Chapter 1. The Musicians Commission









It’s a paradox of human nature to belong to a universe where music can instrument life on a course beyond the human understanding. In the Holy Bible the explanation of the very first musician was Gods gift of wisdom to a musician named Jubal. Jubal was told to make the first instruments. At the same time Jubal was given wisdom to make the instruments, a craftsman was given wisdom to make tools; another was given wisdom to make tents, and there was appointed a high priest. Of course being so many years ago to really know how that all happened. You would have had to of been there. Even so I believe it’s true. No one really has to agree and believe it just because I do. It explains the beginning of music on earth. Its importance and purpose it doesn’t really deeply explain. It just gives you some idea that it was as important to the creator as any thing else to life.



The heavens are resilient in abundance of marvels and mysteries. The outer limits of our premise and domain in this universe go beyond our backyard. We have the ability to see through windows of heaven and reach the highest heavens in our spirit. This knowledge of the highest places makes us able to wield a crown of nature in emotional glories. Music is how we can express and instrument our mind and heart to stir the spirit and delight in the glories of the highest heavens. We have that calling and that ability to embrace that calling. There is life beyond our understanding that completes each cycle of the seasons. The highest commission to our existence is founded in this same calling. Music enables us to explore and delight in the measure of the existence of this calling. Through music life is instrumented in the power of understanding our emotions and the delights of our hearts and minds. We can focus on the freedom of our inner world. This reflects our performance and our attitudes in the external world. The heights of our understanding evolve in the maturing process of our soul. We have to understand the life force within us to embrace the emotional waters of creation that quench the thirst for life. This is in the inner world of the musician. A musician who can embrace the inner world of emotions as well as the material world is a powerful performer.. There are heights to human postures that are founded in the raw principles of creation. The universal knowledge of our inner existence that empowers us to withstand the material nature of being on earth. This fills our life with hopes and dreams of a more abundant and meaningful life.



The hopes of human beings are a powerful resource for a musician to minister and entertain the listener with. These hopes and dreams are an inner world of inspiration and motivation. If a musician can understand these dreams and visions. He or she can wield the power to entertain their listeners with the inspiration to lift their spirits and hold on to their own dreams. This is a great mark to make in society and well rewarding not just to the wealth of the musician but also in the satisfaction and glory of performing their music.



When we are born the hearts and minds of our body’s are new to life. They have experienced nothing on earth. The newness of life is the pure image of infancy. There is no marks or stains to the existence of the infant.. With exception of the parents own intentions of their privacy. The new life of infancy is the pure soul of conception. Conception of the soul is beyond the material image of infancy. There is life that is fresh and new each soul can embrace even after infancy. This life is a musicians responsibility to embrace and host with understanding and motivation to entertain their listeners with.



Celebration of this life of our soul is as important as the celebration of the life of our material image. The call for celebration is deeper and it’s beginning more mysterious and leaves the mind and heart with a desire to know the mysteries of life that fulfill our hopes and dreams. Musicians host the celebrations of humanity’s call to live. The musician’s duty is to instrument the music that celebrates the majesty, marvel, mystery, and beauty of creation. The time of a musician is host to the liberty of humanity and the inspiration for the recognition of the sufferings, the glories, the victories, and the success of our past As well as the inspiration for the future.

























Chapter 2 A Musicians World







Each musician has his own mark to adapt to in this world. His own image to make light of. The work of a musician entails the discipline to embrace their instruments and their writing skills. To really be a host to the world of life and its depths, heights, and widths.. A musician must focus on their own way of understanding life as well as the ways of life that he or she must be host to. The ability to understand the world and its needs for inspiration is how the musician can wield power to host the time to entertain. Also the ability to instrument sound that is the understanding of the inspiration to the inner world of humanity. The ability to understand how to make their world host to the world of others. These are the abilities that make a musician’s skill of value to others not just themselves.



The musician’s world is host to the world of every kind of work. The musician needs to rely on their own understanding of their call to entertain. Their ability to perform with enough skill and grace is their bread and butter to success. Not only does a musician need to understand how to celebrate life but how to motivate others with enough energy and skill to celebrate also.



The wholeness to being a life is required of a musician. There is no faltering in the way life exists. The only faltering is the misunderstanding of life and the ability to embrace it with enough faith to endure. The skills we have as musicians are challenged by the skills of our counter parties in this world. The skills of the machines and their makers pressure us for time. The musicians host to liberty is challenged and the commission to perform music freely is questioned. We have to rely on our own world’s freedom to interest others in the same freedom.



Each musician’s world is the material structure of their fortune and their friends and family. The hopes and dreams of each musician make the musician’s pursuit for happiness his or her own. Because the musician has a commission or call to host the world. He or she must be a leader of celebration and of the world’s liberty. They must embrace their responsibilities to host the world’s interest and inspiration in the call to freedom.



The music of a musician instruments their listener’s thoughts about the world. Each listener has their own world. The world of the musician can become a host to the listeners and the listeners become their fans and followers. This creates another responsibility to the world for the musician. The world of the musician can become many things good and evil because of this. There are high pressures to perform at peak ability when their fans become large in numbers. The listeners become the source of power and prestige to live in high places of society. This creates a responsibility to set an example and is often the musician’s weakness. The examples of the world are of many kinds.. Musicians set their own stage and host the world according to their own understanding. This is the reason for so much question to the liberty to which each musician has to create their own lifestyle and world. The worlds of each of the industries and the political powers have no similar role in the world. Yet they too are well known and have to set an example. So there is at times a difference in opinion about the kind of example someone who is host to the world should be. It’s for the good of mankind that music exists. Yet like many things to life the corrupt image of living on earth can sometimes hold power to entertain followers. Do to the different cultures and different lifestyles. The opinions to what is a corrupt image differ in interest. The judgments of one world are not the same as the judgments of the other. A musician needs to protect their own vitality of life and pursue what image is their true happiness and their true calling.























Chapter 3 The Musician and the Listener







Musicians are musicians in the face of the very existence of life. There is no greater audience than life itself. So the ability to perform music that is good to hear is challenge the musician is not so pressured to achieve. The musician is his or her first and most primary listener. He or she can only understand their performance according to their own ability to listen. The audience of a musician is not the primary source of inspiration to perform. It comes from within each musician. Some musicians may differ in understanding and focus their attention more on the audience then others. A musician able to over power the attention and focus of the audience with the musicians own focus and attention. Can captivate the audience and create an audience who is open to the performance.



A musician has no limit other than their own desire and understanding of performance of music. The ability to project and instrument the sounds that entertain listeners and excite or stir their emotions is a powerful skill. In our world many musicians live and have lived. There are a lot of different genres of musicians. The average musician is more concerned with an average performance. They are not so concerned with leaving an audience marveling at their skill and performance. Like a top performer might accomplish. We all have a measure of ability. No one really has to match or exceed someone else’s ability. It’s not a rival to live. Our dreams are not the persons who are more skilled or able. Our hope is not in our skill able to match or surpass theirs. Listeners have many needs. Their needs aren’t only to be amazed by someone else’s skill or talent. How many listeners can amaze someone with their own skill or talent? There is a reason not every one is highly skilled or motivated. That reason is not that we all aren’t as important in life. So the average listener has a need to hear the average musician’s music also. It shares a mutual understanding of achievement and has power to host a celebration or memorable moment with sincerity and a common place in life. It may be easier for an average musician to understand their audience better then the top performer.





















Chapter 4 The Music of the Musician







The music of each musician is a timeless freedom we have to enjoy the product of creation that only a musician can create. A musician’s music is like a record of their life. The sounds they created in performance are the product of the freedom they created to instrument the depths, heights, and widths to living. Music is an unseen force that is created by the musician’s instruments.. The sounds are praise of life. Music that is played for the quiet enjoyment of life’s simple liberties is a source of inspiration to its listeners.. The simple things to life are only simple in their demand of responsibility and detail. They are not simple in their meaning and importance. Music helps us enjoy even the simplest things. Each step we take is for the wholeness of our life, mind, body and spirit. Each breath we breathe. Standing in one place is our whole being living with a purpose beyond most understanding. Music makes that simple liberty and simple purpose and instruments the very source of its life in us.

Chapter 5 A musicians worship and praise of the creator









Worship to our creator is the highest calling of the musician. It is not every persons belief that there is a creator. The highest place in the universe is audience to the music of a musician when he or she is performing praise or worship to the creator. The spirit is a life force beyond our material cares and has freedom beyond our physical limitations. Worship to the creator exercises the liberty of the spirit and very life’s highest call. The audience of worship is without the same prejudice as a normal listener. The creator is not a respecter of persons. The creator does not favor one life over the other. This makes the experience a cleansing of the morals and the cares of our heart and mind. Our ability to perform with grace and confidence is uplifted and revitalized by the exercise of the spiritual worship and praise to the creator. The zeal and fire for life is invoked in our praise. No one can replace the importance of their soul with material wealth. They can only deny its importance. We all need to worship and praise the creator of life to really experience the full measure of life the creator created life to be.
