Knowing "Our own Role"

8/1/2018

And the men who hold high places
Must be the ones who start
To mold a new reality
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart

The blacksmith and the artist
Reflect it in their art
They forge their creativity
Closer to the heart
Yes closer to the heart

Philosophers and plowmen
Each must know his part
To sow a new mentality
Closer to the heart
Yes closer to the heart, yeah, oh

Whoa whoa
You can be the captain
And I will draw the chart
Sailing into destiny
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart
Well closer to the heart, yeah
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart
I said closer to the heart
Well closer to the heart, yeah
Closer to your heart
Closer to your heart, whoa ---Rush / closer to the heart ,written by  Peter Talbot


I found this through a bit of inquiry ; "Peter Talbot currently lives in Washington State, and still recieves royalties for his song. Unfortunatly his relationship with Neil Pert has become estranged. He still does creative song writing as a hobby, and wishes the band would reconnect with him.",  my guess would be - some "Ego" clash!

A Scenario of where I am going with this;

  1.   a " Band" simply can mean a ;

1. a company of people having a common purpose; group: a band of outlaws.
2. (Music, other) a group of musicians playing either brass and percussion instruments only (brass band) or brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments (concert band or military band)
3. (Pop Music) a group of musicians who play popular music, jazz, etc, often for dancing
4. (Music, other) a group of instrumentalists generally; orchestra
5. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) Canadian a formally recognized group of Canadian Indians on a reserve
6. (Anthropology & Ethnology) anthropol a division of a tribe; a family group or camp group
7. US and Canadian a flock or herd

2. I  have been doing much inquiry into my "Role" as third-gender variety( similar to Fa' afafine.two-spirit,etc),many,many days I have though of not having any aspect of this on this "Web journal", yet though the study,the pondering and inquiry into what.why do I fit into this "Role", and it is all about the role, this study of the third-gender has illustrated so well the importantance of knowing "our role",whether it be apart of a musical band,two dancers dancing,the carpenter and the painter, the Captain and the navigator.

     I wrote this down this morning while listening to Leo's recording " How your mind distorts reality" and the part relating to Maslows ideas on Being Cognition.;

  Senario-    " Imagine are part of team, Leo is the captain, he knows I am pretty good at inquiry,seeking truths,pondering(I am a slower thinker,must ponder)

,He knows since youth I have been highly intune with "Nature",and spend much time there in "my woods", I rely more on intuition,and innate knowledge- "the Spirits of Nature". So Leo says "Michael you be in charge of research into "non-duality and big picture understanding." that we be your role, there you can be the leader, Yet Leo is in this Scenario the "Leader of the Band".

How can" Knowing Our Role", help us?

         keeps us doing what we can do best

         keeps us from trying to doing some thing we are not well suited for, example I am not a good leader for the band,yet I can                    advise the Leader

         Keeps us in Harmony with the band, thus greatly reduces stress which takes all to "Lower Self " where the Ego seems to                    Thrive!
