John Mayer’s story and his opinion how he got to where he is today:Inspiration

Have you ever needed to be inspired ?

Sometimes it helps to hear another’s struggle (s)especially when the end result is the success that you  have been attempting and seems to be out of reach as a lyricist and or songwriter .

Is John Mayer any different than any of us ? We all have a story. Here is his story, told by him , to inspire you !

John Mayer attended Berklee Music for only a semester or two and goes back in 2008 and 2011 to talk about his experiences at Berklee and since leaving.

It felt inspiring to me and thought it would be something that might inspire you too. The first video is entitled appropriately inspiration.

I will write my take home message that I got out of the video  in two weeks giving everyone hopefully a chance to review and get their ideas to share. I will post as a link so as not to be a spoiler for any new comers to the blog. Enjoy and be inspired !

Moving On and Getting Over
John Mayer
Produced By John Mayer, Martin Pradler & Chad Franscoviak
Album The Search for Everything – Wave One

[Verse 1]
Moving on and getting over
Are not the same, it seems to me
Cause you’ve been gone, I’m growing older
But I still can’t seem to get you off my mind
And I do believe I feel you all the time

[Verse 2]
Moving on and getting over
Are not the friends they used to be
It’s been so long since I got to hold you
But I still can’t seem to get you off my mind
And I do believe I feel you all the time, all the time

[Bridge]
Tell me I can have the fact you’ve loved me to hold onto
Tell me I can keep the door cracked open, to let light through
For all my running, I can understand
I’m one text away from being back again
But I’m moving on and I’m getting over
I’m-a getting over, I’m getting over
I got to get over

[Verse 3]
Moving on and getting over
It’s been so long; it just goes to show you
That I still can’t seem to get you off my mind (get you off my mind)
And I sure would like to see you one more time
[Outro]
It’s taken me so long just to say “so long”
Maybe it’s all wrong, but I’m moving on
I’m gonna get a new girl
It’s something I can do, girl
To try to get me through, girl
Cause I’m moving on
I’m moving on
And I’m moving on
I’m moving on
And I’m moving on
Consider me as good as gone
Cause I’m moving on
I’m moving on
Moving on, baby
Moving on
Moving on

I have found the series on YouTube and for your convenience will post a link here. You might want to get ahead of my blog and are welcomed to go to YouTube an watch.

The importance of Your Invisible Power, the brain, if you do not believe that you can write great lyrics , then you will not write great lyrics no matter the hundred of videos, books, lessons, and teachers that you approach.

Listen to this first chapter about visualization and then practice it . You can also read my editorial .Follow the suggestions and free yourself of any doubt.

Your Invisible Power by Genevieve Behrend

Chapter 4 : Operation of your mental picture

1.” Ask and you will receive” said Jesus . This is the explanation that everything animate or inanimate is called into existence. There is nothing unusual or mysterious in the idea of your pictured desire coming into material existence. It is the working of a universal law. The origination of things is the mind. Ex the hat  and pants all existed or had their beginnings in the mind of man. All are projected thoughts that are solidified.

  1. Your personal use of this visualization will determine your evolution of becoming more or less than you can become. You only can become what you believe even if you have the capabilities for more. You have the potential for anything you visualize and believe.
  2. The mental picture is the force of attraction which evolves as it is created by the mind. It will proceed stage by stage, each stage being a necessary preparation for the one to follow.
  3. In making a mental picture of your desire as being a all practical, you must have some idea of your being. The ” I am” and just as soon as your are conscious of your ” Iam-ness” you begin to wish for the freedom which this conscious suggest. As you grow in the understanding , as to who you are, where you came from, what the purpose of your being is, and how you are to fulfill the purpose for which you re intended., you become more perfect center with your creative spirit of life and happy.
  4. Why is there unhappiness? No one desires to be ill. The first reason it occurs is that few people take the trouble to inquire into the working principles of the Law of Life. If they did, they would so convince themselves there is no reason for sickness and poverty . They would realize visualization is a principle and not a fallacy. There are a few that find it worth the study , through unfailing law, which delivers them from bondage. However, the race as a whole is not willing to give the time required for the study.
  5. If you insist upon mentally seeing yourself surrounded by things and conditions as you wish them to be , you will understand that the Creative Energy sends its substance in the direction indicated by the TENDENCY of your thoughts. This is key to acknowledge that your THOUGHTS are in the form of a mental picture.
  6. The more enthusiasm and faith that you are able to put into your picture , the more quickly it will come into visible form, and you enthusiasm is increased by keeping your desire a SECRET.

The moment that you speak it to any living soul, that moment the power is weakened. Your power, magnet of attraction is not that strong and consequently doesn’t reach far.

  1. The more perfect a secrete between your mind and your outer self is guarded , the more vitality you give your power of attraction.
  2. One tells ones troubles to weaken them, to get them off your mind, and when a thought is given out, its power is dissipated. Talk it over with yourself, write it down if you like, but then destroy the paper. This does not mean that you should strenuously endeavor to compel the Power to work your pictures along the special lines that you think it should. as this will exhaust you and hinder the fulfillment of your purpose.

10.Your results for visualization fulfillment your desires may be imperfect, through the misuse , by changing your mind and returning to the original desire, contingent on persons , place or things. The law is that the Original Creative Principle of Live is ” the universal here and everlasting now” The past experience has no bearing upon the present picture . Do not try to achieve a picture that is not natural for you. Your feelings should be that the thing or the consciousness , which you desire is normal and natural, a part of yourself, a form of evolution. If you ca n do this , there is no power to prevent your enjoying the fulfillment of the picture you have in mind, or any other that you create.

Summary: The call into existence is limited only by the imagination of our minds. The materialization requires full commitment to the picture which seems to includes keeping it a secret to prevent it weakening.

If you missed the other chapters you can start with the forward .

Bob Dylan  receives the Nobel Peace Prize :

“The 75-year-old-musician was honored on Thursday by the Swedish Academy for “having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.”

That made him the first American to win the prize since 1993, when novelist Toni Morrison was honored by the Nobel academy. He also became the first true musician to win the literature prize since it was first awarded in 1901, said Odd Zschiedrich, administrative director of the Swedish Academy. “
