Disaster listening skills.

For the musician, like any other trade, in fact in all of existence man in general blindly sought themselves listening to egoic opinions of others eventually crafting their own 'self-embracement'. That's the world of the ego and as a musician it gets quite sticky at times. Busyness of schedule, high profile jobs & well crafted skills can trigger it all so naturally well. Myself, well, I have my share of hurdles to do with the wrongheadedness of ego based opinion, including in my work ethic regardless of whether I am aware of it or not. Its not in the hard yards we give our best on, not in the artistic excellence we achieve for ourselves, or the high praises we receive for our work from others that is the root cause of ego driven lives. Its basically to do with a common pursuit of acceptance from fellow man to validate our own self assurance. It also means thriving for nothing more than a false source of motivation for means like a higher salary, better job privileges & the like which automatically through every possible opportunity we have keeps us on our toes for every entitlement we feel is due us. Automatically, because we all work so hard & God owes us something. Automatically. It seldom happens that way hence the very core of this human rat race. You cannot change your surroundings without change starting within the individual & our homes. Families break due to over work commitments & relationships in general suffer through a lack in wisdom to balance our pursuit of happiness based on our very own self serving worlds. I am not immune to this dilemma of fallen priorities and self-centred agendas. Change is not going to come at all without pinpointing what triggers the egoic mind and how to silence its venom. Families and close tied relationships suffocate & burn due to a lack of respect of each other's limitations just because one believes the other is not heading ways towards their direction. The game is never really over until its side effects starts showing up. This is what I'd like to submerse myself on this year, a cry for change. Its been about in due time for me to see others how I see myself. Maybe, a new basis of foundation that is all things optimistic can occur and take place. Definitely.

Where I have most resonated with.

Hello, to whomever is reading this. My name is Paulo Yarisantos, a Filipino Australian immigrant living in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. I am a beatmaker/musician & producer & part time blogger (when I can) and a seeker of God's living waters within the human soul. This blog is totally run by me and the thoughts are inspired by what I firmly believe in based on experience, starting with the littlest observations before these 'thoughts' begin manifesting themselves. Its just a matter of clarity before one can truly interpret the things I write about. So feel free to scroll through. The following tracks represent where I have been at creatively using minimum technology all completed & mixed using freeware plugins and general production techniques. Quite the outcome production-wise and here are the sum of some of my favourite pieces I collaborated and completed both by myself and with the help of others. Sound results, great work for general media presentatio…

Sonship Parallel (feat. Motto Rock)

Sonship Parallel by Motto Rock As an old rhymer in yesteryears I just wanted to write one more time in tribute to a friend who was taken away by cancer. Strange how the Lord just wills His way & does what He pleases in some ways but it is what it is. So I grabbed a pad & a pen once more just to exhale reminiscing the days of when the crew of old (while John was still around)were still around knocking boots before having families. Hope you like the song & that it connects with you in some way or form. Its just me probably missing a few solid bars so here it is as my best attempt to do something lyrically all up.

Align Yourself To Desired Results.

How is everybody? If you're reading this, it would be a good idea to de-amplify the clutter in your mind & psyche & clear a few things undesired out of the way. There is a desired result for everything under the sun. It is no respecter of persons when plodding on through the maze in your head. It is your responsibility of how far you want things to go & whether or not they work for your own benefit or not. Life is beautiful, & always had been. Unless you failed to be real with it though I guarantee you that you will not run out of second chances. Its a dance & you're the flower. It just needs a little bit of trial & error to see what is best fit &/or what ambitions can work. Its not always about the money though if you were serious about progress, then you'd be glad to know that you can actually lead your steps, your careers, relationships & so on. Furthermore, the daily process of your general well-being. You have every entitlement to take …
