Finding meaning in a world of chaos

I won’t hide under the shallow layers of positive quotes.

I know i’m speaking on behalf of many persons who tries hiding into doubtful meanings in this world of Chaos

By nature I observe a lot ,being a musician sensing subtle emotions ….also by analysing the Minds of people and trying to observe “not identify” the nature of the mind, I see people around me talking ,speaking, acting, behaving without any clue of what they are doing.

Through years of practicing life coaching, mentoring I have been listening to people which many of you would think they are extremely positive and by seeing their profile on Facebook, you would think that their lives are amazing.

sadly ..me and many colleagues of my profession or similar like psychologists, know the real truth within the psyche of the human being especially nowadays

or let me say after the rise of the digital age and the fake connection of people ,we are losing emotions and feelings day after day.

But many of us in the mental health profession,or “peace” guiders enjoy the rise of sadness and are completly off track..

Instead of acting upon these dark minds and thriving to make a change, some thrive to keep their clients in the dark to prosper financially , after all …these “helpers” have no meaning also.

================

Notice how religious talks are rising again which is not wrong but why now ?and massively !

I will tell you why: it’s because the human being is facing a dead-end in his meaning of life…

when you try to see the world through the lens of your mobile phone, visiting countries ,talking to unknown people not knowing the difference between a robot and human being,

chatting endlessly with fake friends creating new ones blocking other ones.. thus… deep down in your self you know that the individual has no more meaning (including your self)

which is the basic reason of this article..

Religions ,priests, dogmas, afterlife talks, are rising to try to give us a meaning by going back to our ancestors to solicit our being for finding a meaning after this physical life,

because apparently this “modern/hectic/business life is no longer giving a passion or a reason to continue living it with some joy or happiness,

or let me say it in another way : with no more patience and thrill to discover new things.

Trying to live to feed our kids in order for them to raise their own kids and both are speeding up a chaotic life where running blindly is all what is left, in other words “Death”

Where is the beauty in all that?

you may hide and act positively and try to behave as if nothing is wrong ,

but deep inside your soul is dark and you know there is no way out unless a real meaning emerge from this chaos.

We’re indeed standing at the junction of two Roads :

one that is completely obscure, dark and meaningless

and another one which may still give us a chance by asking deeply these questions :

who am I why ?

Why did I came on Earth,

what is the true meaning behind this life ?

what are the Hidden Secrets of this life?

and yes .. religions can give you partially many answers because all this divine wisdom from our Masters and Prophets left a trace so we can follow it .

that doesn’t mean that religion speaks full truth and has the only solution .

but it’s inviting you again to break down this horizontal timeline which is called birth and death and find the crosspoint,

the cross of Resurrection which is called the vertical line cracking this horizontal line ..,

this symbol of Jesus crucifixion is the Eternal Life and by Symbol I’m speaking now psychologically so that many people can understand my point ,

so kindly do not understand my statement as a denial of the Christian Faith ..that’s not the subject for now!

Once we find a meaning in a timeless zone , clarity will shine,and meaning will rise .

all we have to do is to slow down and watch out from this prison called “social media”, which myself and millions have been trapped in it .

I invite you all to break from this prison because soon.. and by soon I mean within 10 or 20 years statistics are showing that the ratio of suicide will rise among teenagers by 20 to 30%.

you can check the facts!!!…

indeed we missed the ancient times where meaning ,joy ,bliss were not far away from our Shadows ,they were actually our Shadows !

let me list a set of statements that can help us regain some clarity and passion in our hearts:

1- visit a friend don’t chat with him

2- care once a week about helping a person

3-practice a form of ritual spiritually and love yourself.

4- remember to visit your parents ask about them .

5-spend quality time with your children

6-enjoy being in nature

7-open a book not a tablet

8-smile as much as you can and observe the wonders of this life

9- live your day as if it’s your last one.

10- try to reconciliate people with love interfere where there is hatred

11- remember that all your loved ones will be missed one day,..or gone.

12- don’t take life too seriously

13- enjoy artistic value, build your inner soul

14- love God ,life and the universe as you never did

15-finish your day with gratitude

your life is a meaning into itself

,it’s a meaning for all beings not just humans, even to nature.

when we all act and think in this way ,the word meaning will dissolve and “bliss” will reside !!..

love to all,peace and blessings

Difference between a composer and a singer

Hello first of all,

I’ve been hesitating for a while to write about that article.

Fearing to be understood from an egoic point of view such as  dominance or any word showing superiority .

But I ve been noticing lately on my time line ,some personal irritation from 80% of ignorant signers.

So I decided..to write and explain with a logical mind to many people who are curious to know  the difference .

Naturally we all know that  a singer, is the front lead person taking all the spot light due to the fact that vocal,or  voice and presence is the most humanistic interaction between people.

True he express any given melody or the Composer melody.

Yes he does feel it most of the time. (Most) but it may scratch his surface and pass by …

His attention is on his performance and people s reaction, let me say 10 to 20% of singers are genuine. 

The rest care about the spotlight, the feedback (not artistically) look wise. Their narcissist personality pumps  to a point where he feels he s above all musicians and even the creators of the song.

Most of suicide cases or attempts, u hear them from singers../ It’s rare  hearin  that a composer kills him self. Although as a composer I might after this article 🙂

Now about the composer!

There are 2 types in only our unique weird…bit primitive societies  (Arab in general) 

The one called composer “moulahen” that just hums or creates a tune based on  whatever he heard since his childhood. 

True he still created it. And feels a bond with his creation.

Caring starts to become inclusive and the anxiety of sharing it in  the best way possible 

But this may stop here,as this type of composer  exists mostly in the middle.east.

Also his ego  may pump. and in that case u cannot separate a stealer of melodies from a genuine composer.

The true and authentic composer as most of people living abroad:”

Is the one responsible of his music from scratch, whether by supervising lyrics. Helping the poet, Creating the melody, create each instrument melodic line , assist it in the studio and stays days and weeks living in  it.

And depending on the music piece mood. If it s sad or melancholic the composer can suffer tremendously from it s powerful effect.

Now the bond of a parent to a  child /children  starts.

He cares about each instrument ,about BeING fair to all his children.

About the singer and his voice. He sees the singer and respect him as a soul and tool to deliver the final output of his work.

By that time, the mind and soul of the composer is drained.

He may feel sad..joyful pleasant..depressed..anxious..dark..and must endure all that.

Cause creating the melody and music came from his deepest being, seeing through people And translating their emotions. 

Also He must be fair to all and take care of all..hence he is  a real father or mother.
Now after that tremendous energy is being given;

Here comes the unknowingness of the persons or audience.

They praise the singer. And he gets to say “it s my song.”

It s never his!!…and will never be. Again that small majority of singers may feel a close.bond. 

the rest will care to brag on magazines and go into a pure egoistic competition mode with others and claiming possession of songs.

What a foolish idea.!!

The media and that domain, Cares to put the spot light on the singers for pure business reasons. Eg :How many seated persons  will  come for  the concert of x.

True all is needed. The singer  completes the composer. But not always.

A composer can give music and still exits from his gift.

A singer can never do anything without an existing COMPOSED song…from……a…….COMPOSER.
At the end in our poor middle east and unfair society …The composer sell his piece..his baby , his creation for a small sum.

And the singer makes fortune from concerts on behalf of that song.

And the composer barely get recognition or financial support

An authentic Composer can mean (the one who creates music or lyrics or both)

For those who listens to most American music “oldies or new.”

Most singers such as 

Richard max. Peter cetera. Phil collins.Elton John air supply. And many are the one who create their own songs!!

They are truly talented and feel as a composer + a singer ..
Or at least if a foreigner  sings . 

The composer keeps a  fair share of each revenue for the singer.

Without that song the singer would be doing nothing.

Let s take for ex  the passed away our legendart  melhem barakat who cried his heart out saying that ungrateful people are dominating the market and no rights are preserved for the composer 

. And for me personally my father and hero zaki nassif. Also rahbany  brothers.

They Were  my teachers 

They knew what psychology is. and what feeling others is.

It’s like looking at the bright and dark side of the life. Connecting their emotions. Creating their pieces from feeling their surroundings…

I didn’t forget my idol and master ziad rahbany.

Since I started giving songs to many 2002 -2013

Zayn ..wael jassar  Simon,hisham ..even haifa. Yes “even” cause we re not speaking art at all now.

Vivian mrad..tana kassis.Bruno,many  others.

All this love to the musical piece that comes from your deepest core.

Just to see it getting lost with the applause for the singer.

I felt Something was not right….

The composer nature is more giving..susceptible to his environment while the singer is worried about his black glasses..body guards and all that crap.

I decided to stop all that.

Besides no one knows how beautiful is to compose music alone.

Cause it takes u to a marvelous land where people really do love each other.

So preparing my concert where the vocalist is part of the piece not the whole, would really allow me sharing my inner to all of u. 

And a father or mother cannot be but fair.

But a spoiled singer is like a spoiled child who did not  earn his work by intense creativity .

Some of u know me personally or by Facebook.

Or simply go to http://www.jadmehanna.com and check all my social links

I got late to release my albums and concerts due to the misconception of a society is completely blind of what a pianist and composer can do.

That story creates pain in me. When singers make easily 30 40 50 thousands dollars and the composer barely gets a one time fee.
I will keep fighting for my dream ,instrumental or songs but with a team who will be genuine   as a family .

I and rare composers struggle to find small sponsoring.

whereas singers gets huge sums to be spent later on drugs.sex..and other things. 

I know exactly the “in&out” game and the domain.    

I hope that day comes soon and will re create respect for the composer ; where the creator of that song or piece deserves a much better place  within these ego pumping people. (80% of singers).
Music  is.not about the  restaurant’s  shisha  or “kebbe naye”. And “eehhhhhh w yalla”

When your physical body and heaven meets that s called music .

I Hope that this article  clarified for you the huge  gap between  a composer and a singer.

Blessings

WHY AM I / Sunday , august 21, 2016

Why am I

It s raining out there in my loved but disappointing country..
Although I belong to that planet..Not my borders..

Suddenly a question arise to my soul:
WHY AM I?…

Why am “I”..What s the purpose of being,
It s a journey ..we sure know that…it comes to an end…
They say it s the beginning of a soul journey..
If only someone came back and showed us…

It s a road where we must seek inside and outside..
Nothing is sure..yet all Is.
Fly away from your brain..Embrace the whole existence…
The light will eventually show…

With love from Jad..
