Dead people keep telling us to stop feeling, to let the wounds run dry. Why?

Shiny happy people - have their shit together

Shiny happy people

Good for them

I used to despise, but now I envy, people who don't need art in their life to be present or emotional stable. I thought that people who only need music to party or dance where spiritually poor, that they were missing out on the essence of the art in music. My prejudice tells me that they are either in some sort of bliss or ignorant. But now I understand that they are not constantly filling their minds with art, because they don't need to. For them, art is an emotional overload - too much emotional information. Good for them.

I understand that most people prefer music they know, music that is validated, music that is safe and social, so that they can focus on things that matter. Like balancing their accounts.. And I think to myself ' Those people must really have their shit together - how come they are not cool?'
Because they don't need to, they got their shit together(!)

Help me write part two 
*This is part one of a blog post that I am writing. Part two will be posted later. 
Apparently we don't speak the same language and we will probably never understand each other. But why?
I'd love to investigate this further, but i could use a little help here, so feel free to chime in and I'll keep you updated if I ever figure this one out. Until then, think about it, and help me figure this one out by posting your comments below.

Marc Maron, my spiritual older brother

Marc Maron
Over the last couple of years I have listened a lot to Marc Maron, somehow, it feels like he is an older version of myself. Or at least, we are growing together, after being humbled by an emotional storm.
Oddly enough, when I have been in the deepest despair , I can tweet him, and he answers.

Marc my virtual friend. I hope I can return the favour over a tweet some day. Now that you are engaged to be married, let me tell you this - If you ever choose to have children. That path is very dangerous for us, not because of the children, but because of their mother. We are not built to handle the strong mother instinct and the addictive love for our babies. Eventually it will conflict.

I am a Tiger - mew!

The singer is about as crazy as a a neutered male cat, but he's intensity is marvelous, and the sound and light production more than covers the drama. Rock on pussycats! 
If you are a Mew fan, but don't know their charming debut album 'A triumph for man', I recommend you give it a listen.

This concert by the danish artrock band Mew is recorded live at Roskilde Festival, Danmark.

I am not tough, I am angry

Don't waste your time being tough. Even the toughest run out of time.

My battle with me and I in a picture

But who am I and who is who??
Greatly inspired by 'The Power of Now' I have decided that something, or somebody, in me has to go in 2013. I have a split personality, with different strength. But which one should survive?

And this is me, aggressively flying my big bleeding ego flag.

Depending on art to be present in the now

From The power of Now Eckart Tolle shares his experience with music.

This speaks to me strongly. I, for one, need music to be present and feel connected to the source, the divine. I know now.. 
It's an unpleasant thought to 'be' without music, to be honest. Music has been my number one source, to understanding the feelings, that my brain can not process.
The last couple of years I have been listening to talk radio, more than music. Words and ideas has filled my mind, but not my heart, and I came to realize, that I had become an inspired mind, but an emotional wreck. So I had to turn my attention to music again, just to realize, that I am depending on music to present in the now, when I need stillness. So where do I begin to let go of music, as my first source of presence?

This is what I got from Eckhart Tolle's answer
Don't be depending on listening to music to be present - the music is inside you (it's not in the notes that you play, it's in the notes you don't play).
Presence should not be bound to one thing. When you listen to music and you feel connected, switch off the music and continue listening to the 'music inside you'. Once you feel the 'now', stop, and listen.
Use art to connect to the 'now', then put it away, close your eyes and continue to feel the presence.

There are so many things in this picture, I don't know where to begin :-)
