A forum for the arts?

There is an interesting thread by @Kirill about sci-fi right now and it has made me think that it would be good to have a forum for Arts/Music/Movies etc. There is much to be gained from the discussion of the arts, and also within the context of The Ra Material.

I would love to suggest some movies/music/TV Shows that I feel relate deeply to the Law of One. I apologize if I put this in the wrong place, let me know if I need to move it, as I am still getting used to this new board format. Please feel free to move this if a Arts/Music/Movies board is created in the future. For now I’ll add this as an example of what the boards could be sharing.

Movies
Jeff Who Lives At Home
The description of this movie on IMDB does not do it justice as the makers of the movie promoted it for the wrong reasons, as I do not find it to be a comedy. This movie feels exactly what my life has been as one who has left themselves clues all of their life in order to follow, to be of service. This is what Jeff does, and everyone thinks he’s crazy for following his heart/intuition so deeply throughout the day, but it leads him exactly where he needs to be, moment by moment.

Lucy
Aside for the unnecessary violence of most typical action movies, this is a very fascinating story of what it would be like to be to access our entire brains, and what would happen to that individual. There are so many amazing sequences worth seeing in this movie.

Interstellar
I feel most people have seen this or know of it, but it’s about space travel to help save a dying planet and the concept of ‘Time” and what it really means. It’s very well portrayed in this movie. Very touching and beautiful story.

TV Shows
The Good Place
This show is about the afterlife of a group of individuals, and what they process in the afterlife, including the philosophies behind the afterlife and what it is to be a good person. I don’t want to say much more or I will give too much away, but it’s a very hilarious yet touching show. It’s amazing how many parallels to the Law of One are contained within this 4 season show.

Music
This is the category I have the most to say about, as I spend most of my days listening to music, as that is all my 2-year old feels like watching. I feel blessed that he doesn’t like annoying kiddo shows, so I get to enjoy music all day. But during that exploration of music throughout my whole life, as I also have been listening to music nonstop for years, I have found some artists sing with a passion that feels familiar to me, and I suspect they may be wanderers here to bring that passion to the world, as we all know music is healing to the soul, and I personally believe, transcends time. Please check out these passionate, emotional, and truly beautiful songs. These artists feel things very deeply and they want to share that with the world, and you can feel that. Some of them, I feel, the lyrics alone do not do the song justice, but I thought I’d include them to create some interest in the songs. Links go to the YouTube videos of these songs.

Meg Myers- Heart Heart Head
I can barely speak
Black and white bed sheets
I feel the air retreat
I know you’re here with me
How do I fake it with another man?
How do I love him on the weekend?
How do I listen to another man?
How do I get off on the weekend?
You’re in my heart
In my heart, in my head
You’re in my heart
In my heart, in my head
You’re in my heart
In my heart, in my head
You’re in my heart
In my heart, in my head
Pressure on my lips
I’d die for just one kiss
Wait, God, can’t resist
Could I be dreaming this?
How do I fake it with another man?
How do I love him on the weekend?
How do I listen to another man?
How do I get off on the weekend?
You’re in my heart
In my heart, in my head
You’re in my heart
In my heart, in my head
You’re in my heart
In my heart, in my head
You’re in my heart
In my heart, in my head
You’re in my heart!
In my heart, in my head!
You’re in my heart!
In my heart, in my head!
You’re in my heart!
In my heart, in my head!
You’re in my heart!
In my heart, in my head!
Aah! Aah! Aah! Aah! Aaaah!
Huh, huh, huh, hmm
Huh, huh, huh, hmm
Huh, huh, huh, hmm
Huh, huh, huh, hmm

Meg Myers - Desire
Baby, I wanna touch you
I wanna breathe into your well
See, I gotta hunt you
I gotta bring you to my hell
Baby, I wanna fuck you
I wanna feel you in my bones
Boy, I’m gonna love you
I’m gonna tear you into your soul
Desire, I’m hungry
I hope you feed me
How do you want me, how do you want me?
How do you want me, how do you want me?
How do you want me, how do you want me?
How do you want me, how do you want me?
Honey, I wanna break you
I wanna throw you to the hounds
Yeah I gotta hurt you, I gotta hear it from your mouth
Boy, I wanna taste you, I wanna skin you with my tongue
I’m gonna kill you
I’m gonna lay you in the ground
Desire, I’m hungry
I hope you feed me
How do you want me, how do you want me?
How do you want me, how do you want me?
How do you want me, how do you want me?
How do you want me, how do you want me?
I wanna feel you, I want it all
I wanna feel you, I want it all
How do you want me, how do you want me?
How do you want me, how do you want me?
How do you want me, how do you want me?
How do you want me, how do you want me?

Meg Myers - Children of the Light II
Come children of light
And try not to get caught up in the egoic mind
There are many vices to keep you swimming
In the illusion of time
To keep you from your best life
To keep you on the borderline
To shield you from your own light
To break you 'til you want to die
They feed on your fear to survive
I take it all inside
Turn darkness into life
Your pain will be the guide
Turn darkness into
Come children of light
Turn into what you know
Leave logic behind
May your heart be the guidance
To free you from the dense illusion of time
To free you from your own mind
To free you from their paradigm
To stand up for your own rights
To lead you through your dark night
Of the soul you can no longer fight!
I take it all inside
Turn darkness into life
Your pain will be the guide
Turn darkness into
Now we can go home
Now we can go home
Now we can go home
Now we can go home
I take it all inside
Turn darkness into life
Your pain will be the guide
Turn darkness into
I take it all inside
Turn darkness into life
Your pain will be the guide
Turn darkness into

Nothing But Thieves - If I Get High
I’ll meet you at the divide
To break the spell
A point where two worlds collide
Yeah, we’ll rebel
And we run
And we run
And we run
And we run
And we run
And we run
And we run
Until we break through
If I get high enough
If I get high enough
Will I see you again?
I feel my loss every night
Not long to wait
And if I do this thing right
I dream of our escape
And we run
And we run
And we run
And we run
And we run
And we run
And we run
Until we break through
If I get high enough
If I get high enough
Will I see you again?
Will I see you again?

Nothing But Thieves - Amsterdam
People don’t know much
Need a whiskey crush
To think of something new
Hey you watching me
Lookin’ through a screen
I’m here in front of you
Sometimes the days, they feel so long
Yeah, we all live under the same sun
So I hit my head up against the wall
Over and over and over and over again, and again
'Cause I don’t wanna be like them
I hit my head up against the wall
Over and over and over and over again
And again and again
People piss you off
Some you say you love
Those you call a friend
Walking through a crowd
Then you look around
See there’s no one left
We live and then we die as one
Yeah, we all live under the same sun
So I hit my head up against the wall
Over and over and over and over again, and again
'Cause I don’t wanna be like them
I hit my head up against the wall
Over and over and over and over again
And again and again
I left my heart in Amsterdam
Where I could dream and nights were long
I left my heart in Amsterdam
I hit my head against the wall
Over, over, over
Again and again and then over, over, over
Again and again and then over, over, over
Again and again and then over, over, over
So I hit my head up against the wall
Over and over and over and over again, and again
'Cause I don’t wanna be like them
I hit my head up against the wall
Over and over and over and over again
And again and again
Oh, I left my heart in Amsterdam
I left my heart in Amsterdam
Oh, I left my heart in Amsterdam
I really need that feeling back
Yeah

Lord Huron - The Night We Met
I am not the only traveler
Who has not repaid his debt
I’ve been searching for a trail to follow again
Take me back to the night we met
And then I can tell myself
What the hell I’m supposed to do
And then I can tell myself
Not to ride along with you
I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
Take me back to the night we met
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
Haunted by the ghost of you
Oh, take me back to the night we met
When the night was full of terror
And your eyes were filled with tears
When you had not touched me yet
Oh, take me back to the night we met
I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
Take me back to the night we met
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
Haunted by the ghost of you
Take me back to the night we met

Linkin Park - Heavy
I don’t like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down
I wanna let go, but there’s comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me
Yeah, I drive myself crazy
'Cause I can’t escape the gravity
I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
To so much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
You say that I’m paranoid
But I’m pretty sure the world is out to get me
It’s not like I make the choice
To let my mind stay so fucking messy
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning 'round me just the same
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning 'round me just the same
I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
To so much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
I know I’m not the center of the universe
You keep spinning 'round me just the same
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning 'round me just the same
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
To so much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Why is everything so heavy?
Why is everything so heavy?

Linkin Park - New Divide
I remembered black skies
The lightning all around me
I remembered each flash
As time began to blur
Like a startling sign
That fate had finally found me
And your voice was all I heard
That I get what I deserve
So give me reason
To prove me wrong
To wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason
To fill this hole
Connect the space between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies
Across this new divide
There was nothing in sight
But memories left abandoned
There was nowhere to hide
The ashes fell like snow
And the ground caved in
Between where we were standing
And your voice was all I heard
That I get what I deserve
So give me reason
To prove me wrong
To wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Across this new divide
In every loss
In every lie
In every truth that you’d deny
And each regret
And each goodbye
Was a mistake too great to hide
And your voice was all I heard
That I get what I deserve
So give me reason
To prove me wrong
To wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason
To fill this hole
Connect the space between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies
Across this new divide
Across this new divide
Across this new divide

Foxing - Beacons
I was floating there for so long
King of nothing, but the space I take up
I felt it all at once
I felt it all at once
I was floating there for so long
Petrified by the sight of the sun
I felt it all at once
It felt like nothing at all
Fire broke loose in a moment there
I let it breathe for the first time
And as it danced through the room undressing, It held the closet shut
But I was out with the
Beacons of that shame, left behind
For the first timе I felt alive
I thought I couldn’t move my feet
But I’m running with you now, wе’re a stampede
Tell me everything I know about love
Now it’s thicker than my blood
I thought I couldn’t move my feet
But I’m running with you now, we’re a stampede baby
I’m running with you now, we’re a stampede baby
I’m running with you now, we’re a stampede
I was floating there for so long
I couldn’t speak, now I can’t stop my tongue
Nobody shut me up; no it was nothing at all
So throw away the albatross
Take fortune in everything
And be the sword swinging back to the anvil that birthed it
Put your pain on the pyre, let the light be the
Beacons of that shame, left behind
For the first time I felt alive
I thought I couldn’t move my feet
But I’m running with you now, we’re a stampede
Tell me everything I know about love
Now it’s thicker than my blood
I thought I couldn’t move my feet
But I’m running with you now, we’re a stampede
Beacons of that shame, left behind
For the first time I felt alive
I thought I couldn’t move my feet
But I’m running with you now, we’re a stampede
Tell me everything I know about love
Now it’s thicker than my blood
I thought I couldn’t move my feet
But I’m running with you now, we’re a stampede
I’m running with you now, we’re a stampede baby
I’m running with you now, we’re a stampede

Eden - Fumes
The morning light shines a lifeline
Escape is what I need
I should’ve listened last night, girl
This is beyond belief
That we keep falling for the lure of
Liquid confidence and lies
And we, skydive from walls we built
Dying just to feel alive
On the way down screaming
Woah, oh, oh
If all we have is time, then we’ll be alright
Woah, oh, oh
It’s not much, but it’s better than nothing
Woah, oh, oh
We’re running on fumes, but we’ll make it through the night
Woah, oh, oh
It’s not love, but it’s better than dreaming
Oh, I’m on fire
There’s a burning in my bones and in my eyes
These dreams they’re taking hold, I just need time
Time
Building walls to burn them down
Cannonballs to watch me drown
You’ve got me lost in here and now
You’ve got me gone and lost and found
We only hang in evenings and I don’t know what I’m thinking
But I know that I won’t think it if I keep up with this thinking
All these dreams and all these plans we shared under the moonlight
They’re dreams and plans that I have, I just don’t know if you’ll fit right
When I leave in the morning, and I kiss you and say goodnight
I kick myself until we kick it, should’ve told you goodbye
Coming home so late at night with clothes covered in sand
I don’t know just what I’m missing, but I’m doing what I can
And if all we have is time, then we will find…
Woah, oh, oh
If all we have is time, then we’ll be alright
Woah, oh, oh
It’s not much, but it’s better than nothing
Woah, oh, oh
We’re running on fumes, but we’ll make it through the night
Woah, oh, oh
It’s not love, but it’s better than dreaming
Woah, oh, oh
If all we have is time, then we’ll be alright
Woah, oh, oh
It’s not much, but it’s better than nothing
Woah, oh, oh
We’re running on fumes, but we’ll make it through the night
Woah, oh, oh
It’s not love, but it’s better than dreaming

Eden - Drugs
'Cause I had the best of the worst sides
And I had these lungs, oh
And I had too many flash fires
That I just let them burn
'Til my chest is on fire
And my head just won’t die
I guess I’m lying 'cause I wanna
I guess I’m lying 'cause I don’t
'Cause I just feel so tired
Like it’s move or slowly die
You say, you ain’t you, when you’re like this
This ain’t you and you know it
But ain’t that just the point?
And you don’t know how to let go
Who said this must be all or nothing?
But I’m, still caught below
And I’ll never let you know
No, I can’t tell you nothing
'Cause I’m a fucking mess sometimes
But still, I could always be
Whatever you wanted, but not what you needed
Especially when you been needing me
'Cause I’m a fucking mess sometimes
And I’ll say what I don’t mean
Just 'cause I wanted, or maybe I need it
Swear, lying’s the only rush I need, yeah
'Cause all I needed was some words to say
That all these feelings don’t mean shit to me, yeah
'Cause it’s all just chemicals anyway
Anyway, yeah
And I got way too many routes to take
To make this all just go away and find another heart to break
So heartless with these words I say
Just saying what I’m supposed to say
‘Cause I had nothing for you
I can’t love when I can’t even love myself
Things I would rather be, thoughts in the back of my head
But I’m addicted to hurting
And I got these lungs, yeah
And I spent too many late nights
Just thinkin’ a hole in earth
'Til the sky is on fire
And my head still won’t die
I guess I’m lying 'cause I wanna
I guess I’m lying 'cause I don’t
'Cause I just feel so tired
Like I need something to come alive
She said “You ain’t you when you’re like this”
This ain’t you, what you doing?
And I said, that’s the point
And you don’t know
How to let go
Who said this must be all or nothing?
But I’m still caught below
And I’ll never let you know
No, I can’t tell you nothing
'Cause I’m a fucking mess sometimes
But still, I could always be
Whatever you wanted, but not what you needed
Especially when you’ve been needing me
'Cause I’m a fucking mess inside
And I’ll say what I don’t mean
Just 'cause I wanted or maybe I need it
Swear, lying’s the only rush I need
Yeah, yeah,yeah
Yeah, oh yeah, yeah, oh yeah
Ooh, oh-ooh, oh, yeah
Ooh-oh, oh, yeah
I need it, yeah, I need it, I need it, yeah, I need it

Twenty One Pilots - Car Radio
I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire
Exhale desire
I know it’s dire
My time today
I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence
Sometimes quiet is violent
I find it hard to hide it
My pride is no longer inside
It’s on my sleeve
My skin will scream
Reminding me of
Who I killed inside my dream
I hate this car that I’m driving
There’s no hiding for me
I’m forced to deal with what I feel
There is no distraction to mask what is real
I could pull the steering wheel
I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence
I ponder of something terrifying
'Cause this time there’s no sound to hide behind
I find over the course of our human existence
One thing consists of consistence
And it’s that we’re all battling fear
Oh dear, I don’t know if we know why we’re here
Oh my,
Too deep
Please stop thinking
I liked it better when my car had sound
There are things we can do
But from the things that work there are only two
And from the two that we choose to do
Peace will win
And fear will lose
There’s faith and there’s sleep
We need to pick on please because
Faith is to be awake
And to be awake is for us to think
And for us to think is to be alive a
And I will try with every rhyme
To come across like I am dying
To let you know you need to try to think
I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence
I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire
Exhale desire
I know it’s dire
My time today
I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

Twenty One Pilots - Holding Onto You
I’m taking over my body, back in control, no more shotty
I bet a lot of me was lost, “T”'s uncrossed and “I”'s undotted
I fought it a lot and it seems a lot like flesh is all I got
Not anymore, flesh out the door, swat
I must’ve forgot, you can’t trust me
I’m open a moment and close when you show it
Before you know it I’m lost at sea
And now that I write and think about it
And the story unfolds
You should take my life, you should take my soul
You are surrounding all my surroundings
Sounding down the mountain range of my left-side brain
You are surrounding all my surroundings
Twisting the kaleidoscope behind both of my eyes
And I’ll be holding on to you
And I’ll be holding on to you
Remember the moment you know exactly where you’re going
'Cause the next moment, before you know it
Time is slowing and it’s frozen still
And the window sill looks really nice, right?
You think twice about your life, it probably happens at night, right?
Fight it, take the pain, ignite it
Tie a noose around your mind, loose enough to breathe fine and tie it
To a tree, tell it, “You belong to me
This ain’t a noose, this is a leash
And I have news for you, you must obey me”
You are surrounding all my surroundings
Sounding down the mountain range of my left-side brain
You are surrounding all my surroundings
Twisting the kaleidoscope behind both of my eyes
Entertain my faith
Entertain my faith
Entertain my faith
Entertain my faith
Entertain my faith
Entertain my faith
Entertain my faith
Entertain my faith
Entertain my faith
Entertain my faith
Lean with it, rock with it
When we gonna stop with it?
Lyrics that mean nothing, we were gifted with thought
Is it time to move our feet to an introspective beat?
It ain’t the speakers that bump hearts
It’s our hearts that make the beat
Lean with it, rock with it
When we gonna stop with it?

Great idea everyone! I’ll get onto that as soon as I have time to sit at a computer (I am currently on my phone, lol).

And SpiritualChaos, I love Interstellar as well, great movie. And I remember being a Linkin Park fan as a teenager. Behind Blue Eyes anyone? You’ve listed many references that I don’t recall so I’ll be looking forward to checking that all out. It can be tricky to find really good inspired content these days, but it sure is out there.

Linkin Park was my favourite band for years, starting in my early 20s, then it was Three Days Grace. When Chester committed suicide, it made me far too sad to listen to Linkin Park for years, but I slowly returned to it after I processed my own pain about it.

Because of the nature of social media and YouTube, the music world has opened up so deeply that there is an incredible amount of music being made. I have been listening to the discover mix on YouTube music for many years, so I have discovered so many amazing bands, I could talk about music for hours. I always play an Eden mix when I have my psilocybin experiences, because his music is so deep and emotional, but also very intelligently written. Meg Myers is probably the most intense female singer I’ve ever encountered. She expresses emotions with such passion and intensity, you can feel it in her songs. And Connor Mason (lead singer of Nothing But Thieves) has an extremely powerful voice that carries such emotion.

I actually agree, it takes a a lot of weeding through questionable stuff to find the real meaningful stuff. I actually spent years watching every obscure movie known to man, as my ex husband was obsessed with movies like that. I have found some very good movies, TV shows, and music that I would love to share more about.

The Arts & Culture sub-forum has been created! I moved this thread here because it marks its inception and SpiritualChaos has already added so many awesome suggestions for arts and media. Cheers :champagne:
