Karma Dharma #8 from My Old Soul

It’s no secret I’m in to #personalgrowth.  My songs reflect it more than occasionally and heck, my wife,  has two #selfhelp books out on the market (adaircates.com).  That doesn’t mean I can’t poke fun at it a bit every now and then.  With all the seminars, countless books and spiritual practices I’ve consumed, I feel like I can do that and still “feel light” as they say.

That said, I have to say just how much getting into self-help changed the trajectory of my life.  It started with reading The Secret and going to the Millionaire Mind Seminar, loving Jerry and Esther, Eckhart Tolle and Wayne Dyer and has it been going ever since.  I went on to perform for Bob Procter, one of The Secret’s main stars, and on to making my own self-development auto suggestion rock album called Passion and Purpose.  More importantly, I changed my “money consciousness” which coincidence or not, I now make much more than what I did when I first went to the Millionaire Mind Seminar.

Of course, it is not the cure-all and my life is still not exactly how I want it.  For example, I’m heading into “work” today when I would rather be home in the recording studio finishing my new Kids music album and possibly sneaking in 9 holes at Candler Park Golf course.  But don’t get me wrong, I’m visualizing that life.

“Karma Dharma” is a funny take on all that and a reminder to try to break away from being on auto-pilot, “The creature of habit living inside me, is so tough to scare away”.

All seriousness goes out the window with the first line: “I was thinking about reaching Nirvana but I was delayed by a few petty crimes”.  The punchline is in the second verse:
“I realize now how to reach Nirvana, first I need to work on my karma, but the only way to affect my karma, is to change all the things about my dharma”.  Ah, spiritual humor, you either have to laugh or be offended I guess.

Happy journey to everyone, no matter what path of righteousness you choose to take.  Thanks for listening!

April 28th “Spirit in Human Form”

I was feeling a bit rough today after staying up to watch the Lakers then getting up at 5.   We had to pick up recycling from 220 houses in Hildebran which didn’t help my situation much, but alas I persevered and made it through another work week once again.

I haven’t done a spiritual type song in a while, the idea comes from a quote that Wayne Dyer says a lot “we are spiritual beings living in human form.

Jan 9th “Easy Breezy”

Today I’m actually home on Saturday which is a bit rare.  I was scheduled to play for the writers on the High Country Media tour at Beech Mountain but the frozen roads up that way forced me to stay home.

I absolutely hate not making it to gigs.

Oh well, I made the best of it cleaning up my studio and making it a little more recording ready.  I also fixed a clearer path to the drums so I don’t have to frantically run to them every time I’m doing a drum take.    And I set a permanent mic up on my piano, so we’ll probably be seeing a few solo piano numbers in the future.

Anyway, today’s song “Easy Breezy” was s inspired by “The Shift” a movie by Wayne Dyer that we watched this morning.
