    The Decline Of Big Cats

    The disappearance of species gets to me more than the news of human genocide. That reaction is probably wrong and out of balance, but… I figure that we humans do all sorts of crap to each other and as a species we are only as good as we act, and by and large we get what we deserve. But the other animals aren’t in that situation. To a large extent, they are at our mercy. And our mercy for the animal kingdom is pretty scarce these days. 

    Anger and shame - not sadness - are the proper responses here.

  7. "I wanted to be loved because I was great, a big man. I’m nothing. Look at the glory around us: trees, birds. I lived in shame. I dishonored it all and didn’t notice the glory. I’m a foolish man."

    Deep inside I feel that this world we live in is really a big, huge, monumental, symphonic orchestra. I believe that in its primordial form all of creation is sound and that it’s not just random sound, it’s music. You’ve heard the expression ‘music of the spheres.’ Well, that’s a very literal phrase. In the [Bible] we read, ‘And the Lord God made man from the dust of the earth and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul.’ That breath of life to me is the music of life, and it permeates every fiber of creation.

    In one of the pieces of the Dangerous album, I say: ‘Life songs of ages, throbbing in my blood, have danced the rhythm of the tide and flood.’ This is a very literal statement, because the same new miracle intervals and biological rhythms that sound out the architecture of my DNA also govern the movement of the stars. The same music governs the rhythm of the seasons, the pulse of our heartbeats, the migration of birds, the ebb and flow of ocean tides, the cycles of growth, evolution, and dissolution. It’s music, it’s rhythm. And my goal in life is to give to the world what I was lucky to receive: the ecstasy of divine union through my music and my dance. It’s my purpose, it’s what I’m here for.
