Noise – Soul Music

A few weeks ago, I mentioned decreasing my time online, especially on social media platforms. However, I still believe in the possibility of meaningful Connections in our virtual world too, therefore, for this Soul Music’s post, I’ve chosen a song which message gives voice to my thoughts perfectly…

Activity online

Since I still aim to reduce my time spent online, however, I also want to give voice to my mission and be helpful to my global neighbors at the same time, finding a good balance for me personally is thus an ongoing process.

“Noise is a reminder. It’s some food for thought. I see it more as an optimistic video than pessimistic. Especially the last 10 seconds of the video, when you see the beautiful forest and the landscape, it should fill you with hope the real world is still out there. This video is not a criticism about technology or cell phones. Me, all the bandmembers, we love technology. We wouldn’t ever have done this record without technology. We love our cell phones, the Internet and all that, but it’s a criticism for the addiction that these things cause in human beings. ‘Addiction’ is the word. It’s such a shame that we have all these wonderful tools that we can for the good, to spread true information and to be connected to the world. I love the idea of social media, I like Twitter, that everybody in the world suddenly has a voice; we have a voice. We can immediately get out there. It’s just a matter of what you put out there. And that’s what the video is all about.” – Tuomas Holopainen

Like Nightwish, I love technology. Combining ancient wisdom and modern knowledge, as also today’s technology, is my way of creating a meaningful life. Like the composer, Tuomas Holopainen, I’m aware of the danger of the addiction. Finding the balance fitting to our individual preferences and at the same time building meaningful Connections and fill our virtual world with meaningful content… that seems to me a worthy goal to fulfill.

Grateful for the visitors @ my virtual home, I do have options to keep up to date of my latest creations. You can subscribe via email and if a member of WordPress hit the follow button in the RSS feed. Or stay updated via my WP update blog.

I already decided to keep LinkedIn for business related Connections, many are also friends. And I’m thinking of reviving my Pinterest page, since it’s a visual search engine (not a social platform like FB, Instagram or Twitter) and I can use it to keep my creative side going. At the same time, I also have some ideas for my YouTube channel… Balancing my time between the on-  and offline world is truly a challenge. Most likely, because I still view both worlds as real.

Enjoy today’s Soul Music choice, maybe it provides you food for thought regarding your online frequency too ; -)

Noise - Nightwish

Lyrics

Crave the machine
Revere the screen
Zoom in for flak and misery
Bleed some pixels

Shoot yourself
Pose for the dead
Have a near-life experience
In a hot air matrix

Now you’re a star
Vain avatar
Feeding the beast
In your loud Egoland

You have become
Tool of a tool
Digital ghouls
Telling you to
Shut up and dance!

Color a yarn and the crowds will gather

Noise
From a sunless world
Your mirror is black, only a copy stares back
At a slave of brave new world
Noise
To decoy the human voice
Brain insomniac, paranoiac
Endless noise

Please love me
See how I bleed
Please endure
I have such empathy in me

Hum, noise, hum
Beautifully numb
Tapping the quiet air
To have a meaning

By a carrion
Sad hologram
Lost in the maze
The real and human feel

Sunset is free
From this deity
The Earth has a real voice
Go out and get in

I will follow

Color a yarn and the crowds will gather

Feast your eyes on the black mirror
Feed the beast, join the gathering
Tell a tale
Feast of fears is drawing nearer

Beyond the human horizon
Something terrifying sleeps

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.

    1. Ah Sean, thanks for your continuous support! Busy developing a new project, however, will visit your website soon. Wishing you and Linda a fabulous weekend. XxX

  2. I too have found ways of more quietness & reducing screen time including having green tea prepared me without my phone, sitting & drinking in a refreshing, meditative way.

    I enjoy music & have found myself listening more when I wish to and not constantly, so I am not overwhelmed, both ears & mind & I can appreciate each song more fully.

    1. Thank you for Connecting, dear Jade! Love the ways you found to be more mindful. Green tea is a tea I happen to enjoy too 🙂
