Weak Fantasy – Soul Music

It has been a couple of weeks since I last posted here @ my virtual world. Do you recognize that feeling of knowing you flunked your exam, and still in sort of a shock when you get the results back confirming that feeling? Well, I was in a similar shock after watching The Social Dilemma.

The Social Dilemma

To me, we should connect online the same way as we do in the real world. With integrity and thus respect for each other. A few weeks back, after watching the documentary ‘The Social Dilemma’, I started to question my own behavior online.

Yes, I was aware that online marketing and search tools are designed to keep you coming back and use them. I also knew people can get addicted to social media platforms and, to me, even worse derive their self-esteem from those. Still, after watching the docu I was not only in shock, I was also demoralized.

Withdraw

The moment my emotions are all over the place and I lose side of who I am at core, I withdraw. I need to do this to gain new clarity of where I want to go. Fortunately, I know tools that can help me during such confusing times. For me one of those tools is music. An artform in which I often find the answers I am searching for.

Here on this website, my virtual world, I aim to inspire my readers to Connect. To Life, to Others, to Yourself. Influenced by marketing techniques I studied and participating in online communities, I realized I did stray away from my own goals. I had fallen for some of the traps presented in the Social Dilemma documentary.

Thought provoking

My vision of our world is anything but a weak fantasy. Not only do I want to inspire to Connect… My content needs to be meaningful: integer, respectful, authentic, real. Thought provoking at times, inspiring you, to keep on choosing YOUR truth.

The lyrics of the Soul Music’s choice of today are controversial. I realize that, however, as mentioned, I also share thought provoking content. “Fear is a choice you embrace” and in both the real as the virtual world I get to decide how often I am going to Connect. In addition, within the law, I get to choose what to share here @ my virtual home. Sticking to this, it resolves my personal social dilemma.

“Every child worthy of a better tale”. Humans are story telling machines. Stories should be fun and/or contributing to our world. Meaningful for both; the real and virtual world. These tales should not be used to divide, mislead or to suppress, or be based on weak fantasies.

Let’s create better tales to share, not only for our children, for all of us!

Weak Fantasy

Lyrics

These stories given to us all
Are filled with sacrifice and robes of lust
Dissonant choirs and downcast eyes
Selfhood of a condescending ape

Behold the crown of a heavenly spy
Forged in blood of those who defy
Kiss the ring, praise and sing
He loves you dwelling in fear and sin

Fear is a choice you embrace

Your only truth

Tribal poetry
Witchcraft filling your void
Lust for fantasy

Male necrocracy
Every child worthy of a better tale

Pick your author from à la carte fantasy
Filled with suffering and slavery
You live only for the days to come
Shoveling trash of the upper caste

Smiling mouth in a rotting head
Sucking dry the teat of the scared
A storytelling breed we are
A starving crew with show-off toys

Fear is a choice you embrace

Your only truth

Tribal poetry
Witchcraft filling your void
Lust for fantasy

Male necrocracy
Every child worthy of a better tale

From words into war of the worlds
This one we forsake with scorn
From lies the strength of our love
Mother’s milk laced with poison for this newborn

Wake up child, I have a story to tell
Once upon a time

Your only truth

Tribal poetry
Witchcraft filling your void
Lust for fantasy
(Fantasy)
Male necrocracy
Every child worthy of a better tale

Soul Connection

There are many ways to Boost Your Soul and music is a fantastic one. There are a variety of genres you can listen to, even Soul Music is a genre in itself. To me, music is also a way to Connect with your Soul. A tool to help you go through emotions and acknowledge them. Depending on your mood, there will be always a piece of art that goes along with it. What I love most about music is how it can Connect people.

Acknowledge ;-)

  1. I saw The Social Dilemma a couple of months’ ago – how confronting! Especially to know that we’re being manipulated to such an extent. We all know that what we see is what social media wants us to see, but I didn’t realise it was this blatant. I really want to get rid of FB but I have a business page and not allowed to have one unless I have a profile page – clever!

    Great song and powerful lyrics – thanks for introducing me to Nightwish, will check more of their music out.

        1. Ah, another great Dutch band 🙂
          It really is, right?! The person behind the keyboards composes most of the Nightwish songs, if I understood correct. Truly a master at work.

  2. Now you make me very curious about The Social Dilemma… I have no Netflix, so I am looking for it elsewhere. I really do need to change my (our, also husbands) behaviour online, on ‘social’ platforms, knowing what they are about… this might be the ‘thing’ I need to quit Facebook, once and for all. (And although I do not comment very often here, in my opinion we are still connected, somehow… XX)
