How does one Practice Wholeness in a world divided? What does it mean to be a "whole" self, of healthy mind and capable of making healthy decisions? As children in the developmental stages of life, the world is a place full of new things to discover, and as the child may seek to discover the nature of this world and seek to become a part of it, one might note the abundance of questions asked by the child. Questions like why. As the child grows into 'adulthood' however, the inquisitive nature is forgotten. Why?
“Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school. It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education. ”

What's the Point?
To me, there is no single quick fix, no magic silver bullet to get you from where you are to where you want to go. I can't promise that this is your one-way ticket to instant fame and fortune. Success is driven by the desire and a willingness to never give up. while seeking challenges as opportunities and striving to overcome them.
I believe that a group of committed individuals working together can aim higher and achieve more. That's why I'm doing this...

For one, devoting your life to any kind of art is not only honourable and good, but it is also very natural
Like the more time I spend creating and playing music, the more that’s all I want to do
Sometimes I get annoyed when Soso or or Lablah the bandees want to smoke weed for like 45 minutes when my brain is wanting to be submerged in playing music
And that’s a voluntary activity
But it takes away from what’s pulling my very existence
On the other, life is here for the living and though there are so many facets of songwriting that you could indeed spend every waking moment on it and never run out of things to improve and create.
If you don’t take the time to live life, and enjoy some of it, take in art whether it be in games, TV, film, books, or anything else, you deny yourself the possibility of any of those things expanding your creative mind and leading you to places you wouldn’t have gone otherwise
Not to mention receiving art into your mind is a way of connecting with all the humans who made it, and therefor gives you practice at connecting with humans, seeing how other artists do it, and draw your own conclusions there.
I’d argue that a great portion of art creation is sharing existence with other humans. You think the composers of yore didn’t have hobbies on the side?
