- Please Tell Me Who I Am: The Genius of Supertramp
What happened to the magic and awe of childhood? Why do we abandon ourselves in favor of conformity. Supertramp explores some of the deepest questions that we all consider at some point in our life, such as "Who am I? What have we learned?"

What makes a classical piece of music beautiful?
Is it a particular note in the piece that makes it spectacular? Or is it the arrangement of all the notes that make the piece incredible. These notes consist of tones of varying vibration; and in addition to these notes, there are also rests. These periods of silence in which a tone is not played are just as important as the notes, because they can build anticipation and excitement. “I wonder what is going to come next.” Then we come to the emotional experience of classical music.
A classical piece of music will often take one on a journey through a variety of different emotions. Doesn’t this sound like life itself? On our life journey we have all experienced highs, lows, and the in betweens. Classical music is different than traditional pop and rock music, which will usually follow a predictable steady grove throughout the piece, whereas as a classical piece usually doesn’t. You might think the piece is going to stay on its current course, but a switch in notes takes the piece to another road. This is also similar to life. We may think we are supposed to sail to a certain location, but then the wind gets hold of our sails and takes us in a new direction. Now, I would like to talk about these beautiful notes of God’s symphony.
These beautiful notes are us. We are each a beautiful note in God’s symphony. Each note is unique and special. As in a classical piece of music, not one note is more special or more important than the other. God loves the notes of the symphony all the same. They are all beautiful music to God’s ears; and even though we appear to be separate from one another, we are actually One. We are not only the beautiful notes of God’s symphony, but we are also the symphony itself. We often get so caught up in only seeing the differences that we forgot about our true connection to one another.
We are all a part of this beautiful symphony we call life.
I truly believe that we should celebrate our differences. This is what makes life interesting. Imagine if everyone looked and acted just like each other. This would be mighty boring. However, our society is bent on having everyone look the same. When I was in high school, if a person didn’t wear designer jeans and sneakers, they were made fun of.
What does this say about individuality and uniqueness?
In our educational system, it is not set up to honor the unique individual. It is truly sad to see so many talented and gifted children fall through the cracks because their unique peg doesn’t fit in society's square hole. There is a very important song by Supertramp called “Logical Song” that talks about the dangers of conformity. For those that are interested, I wrote an article about that song entitled "Please Tell Me Who I Am: The Genius of Supertramp."
Now, let us imagine a world in which the gifts and talents of the child were nurtured. How beautiful would that be! This would put an end to the high number of individuals that work jobs they hate. This would also put an end to the high number of unskilled workers that we currently have in this country. It should come as no surprise that people are happy when they are allowed to follow their hearts and do what’s natural to them. Life is too short to waste your time doing something you do not like. That is not living; that is dying.
We are Extraordinary Spiritual Beings with a Soul Purpose.
Instead of following the crowd, why not follow your own Soul? It knows you better than the crowd of conformity which doesn't have your best interest at hand. Believe me, there is a much better way, my friend. Embrace the powerful words of Sting:
“Let your Soul be your pilot.”

The Idea for This Article
The inspiration for this article came from my friend Ashvina, commonly known around these parts as Feline Prophet. She posted a video that was made on the 130th anniversary of Banco Sabadell. The people of Sabadell wanted to honor their city. They showed their respect by performing one of Beethoven’s beautiful classical pieces in a Spanish plaza.
It was very beautiful to see the connection between the musicians and the audience. This is a perfect illustration of Unity Consciousness. As we are the individual notes and the symphony, we are also the musician and the audience.
We are each unique expressions of the Divine.
We are also One with the Divine.
We are the Light.
