The Vanilla World View is, in a way, a religion that's not a religion, a belief system that does not depend on jargon. The book, or manifesto, also entitled The Vanilla World View, spells out this belief system and unravels some of the "unanswerable questions" that befuddle so many of us .

Love, Evolution, and Destiny Paths (in progress)

When we start to think of purpose, about why we're here and what we're supposed to do, it's easy for us to feel disoriented and confused, even nihilistic. Perhaps the following will help make you realize that everything is here for a reason.....that we are here for a reason.

Love, first of all, is an energy...actually, it's many different levels of energy, depending on intent, level of activation, and interaction. Love is a renewing force, a force that heals, uplifts, energizes; it's even a balm for the spirit. We humans are here on earth with a soul kernel, a spiritual package that we must open, unfold, and develop....it's the way we transcend death, the way we live longer, the way we live forever.

But we aren't meant to do this solo. Instead, we must engage in a symbiotic relationship with another, and in this relationship we exchange love energies, amplifying them and making them more effective by ricocheting them back and forth. If you see Love as a means of merely reproducing, you've got it wrong. Lust takes care of that...a lower form of the Love energy, a semi-cinnamon form, it operates quite effectively. But at the higher levels, Love is intended for much more ambitious purposes.

Simply put, love is the energy we use to save ourselves, and we save ourselves by saving others in soul-mate relationships. Interestingly enough, I suspect that the soul mates we meet in our lives are pre-ordained...they're waiting for us as we weave our destiny.

But what makes a Soul Mate? A Soul Mate is one whose Destiny Path resonates harmoniously with ours. I can't really get too detailed as to the why and the wherefore.....I can only say that your Destiny Path is like a guitar string, a string that is "played" when you interact with others. When the Paths mesh, or resonate, you make friends, fall in love, find your Soul Mate; when the Paths clash, you find conflict and struggle...but of course you should really walk away when there is a dissonance. This may explain friendship, enemies, War, Peace...but that's another chapter.

The "need to be loved" is a physical thing, yes, and should not be overlooked, as pleasure also contributes to positive energy, it also heals, and it also helps a person momentarily transcend the terrestrial level of thought.

But the need to be loved is also a spiritual thing, the soul's crying out for development, for unfolding, for realization, for fulfillment. It may also be a catalyst that forces one to change what one does in order to "get back on the Destiny Path" from which one may have strayed.

And yes, just because there is a Destiny Path doesn't mean that you'll follow it with your eyes closed. If you ignore the "road signs" that appear throughout your life, hints for you to do a certain thing, then you swerve into a dead-end, a life path that ends in unhappiness, dissatisfaction, a lack of fulfillment, even the loss of the soul. For if the soul doesn't develop, then it's finito when you die...the soul hasn't developed its wings sufficiently to "persist" after the death of the physical body.

The implications of what I have said above are enormous.....they even explain many of the concepts of our organized religions that we may accept, but may not understand. For most of our held beliefs are a true part of a vast metaphysical jigsaw puzzle.

And Love is the key, the mover, the motivator. Love is religion. Sex is associated with love, so sex too is religion, and shouldn't be kicked out of religious discussion. Add the sensual to the spiritual, and you made the two halves whole again...you've healed the Great Schism that has made our civilization so unhappy and unable to answer those eternally unanswerable questions.

Chart Stoppers

I took a minute to check the chart action on the Web......

"Rock It Forward" is up to #2 in the Rock charts. Maybe the new improved sound has something to do with it. And now I added a "tail to the dragon"...ha ha....

"Dance It Forward" is at #3 in the Dance charts, but holding steady.

"Listen To My Whisper" has pretty much lost steam on the rap charts.

Global Remastering To Begin

After a series of sound tests with different speakers and systems, I believe that we have managed to ramp up the sound quality of our music files by as much as 200%....check out "Rock It Forward", a sixth-wave track that I created from scratch using this standard.

Now the fun really begins....I will systematically remaster ALL of my previously released tracks. Only tracks from waves One and Two will, because of the way they were created, manage just a 100% quality increase. But that's still progress....

Yes, I'm relentless.....but one only achieves a goal by taking on the energy of an overwhelming force....

The Remastering Game

My sound guru has been working with me lately in improving the sound quality of my music, easily the #1 problem as I see it. Over the next two weeks we will run some tests, with the new song, "Work The Forward Love" being the guinea pig. If we get the results we want, I will go back and remaster virtually everything I have released...you see, I do in fact live by that Manifesto. Those who have bought my other CDs will receive remastered versions of these CDs automatically......at my expense.

"Listen To My Whisper" made it to #3, but that's as far as it will go. So much for my target practice...although my latest song could do better. I'm actually more worried about the mixing game, about ramping the sound quality up...because my next focus is going to require all of the production power I can muster......more on that later.
