I thought I would share this beautiful song with you as the lyrics could not be more relevant to everything this blog is about. The weird thing is, it’s by Massive Attack, who are my favourite music producers and I’ve had this track for years but never took much notice of the lyrics till last year.
I suddenly realised what was being said and fully understood it for the first time – which shows how much more aware you become once you go deeper into this journey of self development. Similar to reading “Think and Grow Rich”, which the first time around, I was not aware enough to fully understand.
I ended up playing it every morning for 6 months and it really helped me during a tough period. It reminded me what I needed to do to stay on the right path towards creating the life I desired. I hope it might do the same for you.
I’ve pasted the lyrics below and analysed them, so you fully understand. Do as they say and there’s no doubt in my mind, you have a blueprint for success.
“What Your Soul Sings” by Massive Attack
Don’t be afraid Open your mouth and say Say what your soul sings to you
We tend to see our “soul” as something separate from our identity. Something deep down within us, hidden away, almost. But what I’ve come to realise is that what we refer to as the soul, IS our true identity. The soul IS who we are! Because whenever we listen to our soul, digging deep to find it, we are in essence, asking for our true nature to come forward. To give us the answer that we feel is most right.
We view the “soul” as a spiritual entity within us, the human entity – which we see as our real identity. But this is BACKWARDS! I believe we are actually a spiritual entity, a spiritual being, that resides within a human body. A spiritual being, having a human experience. Yet most people think we are human beings who occasionally have spiritual experiences.
Anyway, whatever your belief, you should listen to your soul – that voice deep inside that KNOWS what it is you want. Because that’s the real you. Whatever your soul is singing, is what will make you happy. So don’t be afraid – forget what “society” thinks. Forget what your ego is fearful of. Do what will make YOU happy.
Your mind can never change Unless you ask it to Lovingly re-arrange The thoughts that make you blue The things that bring you down Only do harm to you And so make your choice joy The joy belongs to you
The only way to change your life into something you truly desire, is to change the way you THINK. You have to re-arrange those negative thoughts (which make you blue and only ever do harm) into positive ones, which bring you joy. That’s a CHOICE. We have full control over our mind, even though it might not seem that way, and can “ask it” to change what it focuses on at any time. This is the key to life in my opinion; changing that mindset from positive to negative.
And when you do You’ll find the one you love is you You’ll find you Love you
Once you learn to listen to your soul and change your thoughts, you’ll find your true self and love who you are. So many people in pain don’t love themselves. I didn’t. I hated who I was. Once you love yourself, everything else will start to fall into place.
Don’t be ashamed no To open your heart and pray Say what your soul sings to you
We are told in our society that it’s foolish to go after our dreams, that we must conform, that it’s selfish to listen to our own desires. As a result, many feel ashamed to follow their heart. To pray for or wish for what we truly want.
So no longer pretend That you can’t feel it near That tickle on your hand That tingle in your ear Oh ask it anything Because it loves you dear It’s your most precious king If only you could hear
This is a wake up call to everyone living an unfulfilled life. There comes a point, as it did with me 2 years ago, where I couldn’t pretend any longer. I couldn’t live a lie; I was unhappy and not doing what I really wanted to. The longer this feeling goes on, the more your inner voice, your soul, gets louder; a tickle here, a tingle there. If you can hear it, it will be your most precious king because it will answer any question with love and truth.
And when you do You’ll find the one you need is you You’ll find you Love you
You don’t need anyone else to make you happy. The only person you need, is you. Happiness cannot be found externally, only internally. And you have all that you need already within. You just have to realise it.
