Lets get real here ok? Words have meaning and power, but their definition needs to be dealt with on a more feeling level and re-expressed at an Individual's level of feeling and or expression. Misunderstanding... can only happen in Art, Music, or the Entertainment Industry as a whole, when someone else's judgment pattern insist that "your just not quite doing that right or saying it right."Just because "Business" does it wrong dose not mean that those of us in Business seek to follow the trend of those before us who could care less about ethics, feeling, or the broader message. I'm gonna speak about what I believe in, as far as "flipping the switch."
We begin this process of "flipping the switch," when we can get over the need to be right, and the need to think that some else has to be wrong, in order for us to be right. The real issue really is that (in this Country at least) we tend to have an US vs THEM attitude. As long as that prevails no words will ever break through that wall. Art suffers, and real communication fails dismally. The attachment of hurt and pain is too real in the so called "meaning" of words, to have those kinds of walls to break down. Why? simply because the attachment to the words meaning doesn't go any deeper than the flesh wound.
In Business or any other medium of expression, words more than anything get in the way. Titles also get in the way as well. I want to show you a Video I did regarding how words, definitions, and even attitudes get in the way.
Here in this Video, you have Democrat Vs Republican. Most will say that it's the Entire Governments fault.... But who elected these morons? We did, so where is our responsibility? Do I like what their about or what they are doing.... noooo. But how does change, real change come about? All of our interactions, good, bad, or indifferent are expressed the only way we all know, right now. We can't express what we do not know, and that is as simple as I can make this process. We can only start from where we are at.... right now. We can only care from what we know.... right now.

But I also, sincerely believe, we don't know any better, and we keep making the same mistake of letting our prior judgments and prior experiences rule over simple common sense, and what we actually know about each other, or our friends, or our real circumstances. And that my Dear, creates one more wound one more hurt, one more appearance of a lie, to where another wall appears.... leaving us with one more unattainable goal to reach. The idea, or concept of peace, is nice... a real "feel good." But will never be reached if all we see is outdated expressions, and no real concentrated effort to get to the heart of a words meaning or new definition's application as expressed by someone who cares, as opposed to someone who doesn't give a rats ass.
This is why the Arts are so very important, Art transcends "boundaries" that most industry limit, this prohibits ones original concept or application of the word or expression. The answer is simple, recreate the Industries meaning, by creating your own Field's Application. and Definition. Hopefully, we as Artist do not get caught up in the crossfire of emotion and stubbornness of not desiring a change of meaning for the path's expansion of meaning, definition, and most of all application. Business does not have to be an enemy, we make it so by reducing our control by not owning our own definitions, meanings, and heart of what we desire for change. Real change comes by real Vision on all levels of expression.
