Press play…and jump with me

I had the time to read what you guys wrote on the chat during the last ”Bla Bla Bla: The Live Show” and even though almost two whole weeks have passed, I could still live the intensity of that moment through your expressions, your generous openness, your colorful hearts displayed by black letters on a white screen. First, I want to thank you because through sharing you decided to jump into that day, you allowed the music and all that is within our hearts, to travel so much further than we could ever have alone. Music can be sterile when there’s no heart to receive it and words have no wings if no one is listening and allowing them to fly with the heartfelt message that is attached to them.

“I’m happy that I could be back from work earlier today. Here are the songs that strike my heart.”
“Just the first few notes and my heart is filled with love”
“I find it so touching too…and so intimate!!”
“I love how they are in a circle, the connection travels through everyone. It can’t be broken!”
“It’s like one heart speaking through 6 harmonious voices”
“Another song from the soul,just remarkable! Love it with the feeling it is played”
“This music you not only hear it, you can feel it in your soul”
“I love being a part of this story, it’s a warm feeling”
“I have always been convinced that music had the power to change things.”
“Music is to be shared by everyone but the feelings and thoughts towards the songs are only for that person. This song is mine and also yours.”

Do you know what makes us one? It’s not the place, it’s not the event we attend, I don’t think it’s even a question of participating in what can be seen or heard, it has nothing to do with being the same or conforming to a uniform idea… What makes us one, to my understanding now, is to belong together in such an open way that we accept our own differences and imperfections just as much as we welcome others and their own flaws and all that for a purpose… what was the purpose of this Bla Bla Bla? To live a moment that would make us feel so alive, closer to our own soul and emotions so we can realize this life is worth it, this life is ours to grasp and define, this life is a gift we can explore and share.

“Because he is singing with faith, it touches me a lot”
“My heart is pierced by the voice of Alex”
“I always feel secure by his voice”
“So much humanity and warmth are emerging from each word of the lyrics.”
“I think it is redemption…all of it..”

Music is for most of us a catalyst that helps us find our way home… to find the door of our heart and emotions… But I realize that even if I find this door, my courage to pass through comes when I look around and I see people hesitant just like me, disabled just like me, wounded just like me… and as we look in each other’s eyes we jump one after the other…it doesn’t matter in which order we jump… it doesn’t matter how… it doesn’t even matter where or when we will land, but what matters is as we are flying all together in this space we call “US” we know nothing can replace the wind of life we breathe in and the emotional friction we can feel all over our body.

“Bla Bla Bla the most emotional, special and magical show ever !!”
“I don’t want this show to end!…”
” For my first BlaBlaBla I am so glad it was this one”
“Jesus! What a holy Bla Bla Bla today”

Thank you for again flying with us, giving me and to so many all around the world the courage to jump in “US”… and as I’ll watch the rerun of this Bla Bla Bla I will not only remember but I will live it today with the set of wings you helped me realize I had. Because what we felt all together wasn’t the maximum of what we’re meant to live… it’s a wonderful glimpse of what I can’t even understand yet… that mystery deeply rooted in reality, one we only start to taste, to feel… one we gain to allow ourselves to stretch our boundaries, to stretch our hearts. Ready to watch it? Press play…and jump with me:)

    I love this blog!! I love all of yours, as you know, dear Isa, but this one expresses so beautifully my experience of the Bla Bla Bla that day, and on many levels, my experience of the YFE community! To me, this has always been about “communion” – hearts and spirits joined together in a way that is beyond our understanding, finding and sharing strength and inspiration through our connections with each other and with Something so much greater than ourselves!! Music is perhaps the most accessible and welcoming doorway to this communion of souls and Spirit, and because you desire it to be so with all of your beings, YFE’s music is especially powerful in this way. I was so carried away with you and everyone else during the live performance moments of the BBB and it is so precious to see some of the words that expressed the experience shared by all of us together from the chat here again. This one especially caught my eye and heart: “I love how they are in a circle, the connection travels through everyone. It can’t be broken!” That was true of the band most definitely – of the crew as well – and also of all of us around the world who were experiencing those moments together – a connection that could not be broken, traveling through us all on Spirit waves of light. The electrical waves that join us all in this communication age – texts, skype, internet social networks, chat, phone – fascinate and amaze me, but the invisible connections between our hearts and minds and spirits that flow without the help of “outside” forces are even more incredible. There is always a negative inertia which seeks to break these connections, but if our united desire is to nurture and strengthen them, they are strong indeed! Thank you again for everything you do through your music, the Red Crown Crane and other projects – your continual outpouring – to forge and strengthen connections that transmit life and hope and light far beyond yourselves. That network of Light you are building is gently but persistently sustaining life in hearts around the world, helping us to be Light ourselves in the circumstances that surround us. We are never alone when we allow the Life within us to unite with the Life of really does create life…

    Love you always and praying!!! you know it!! mom e

    This Bla Bla Bla was truly one of my favorite ones not only because of the vibe that we could feel on the set, but the one on the chat as well. To witness some relationships that are starting by a spark during the show, then fired up in the following weeks is overwhelming. We all need eachother: musicians, music addicts and fans, friends, crew … and I find that there is no other way that we could create those moments without simply being who we are and letting ourselves be carried away by the excitement and pride of each other!!

    Thank you for putting in place this Bla Bla Bla with a powerful purpose. I proudly admit that we’ve accomplished it together and beyond!!

    Hey Sweet Sis!

    I love Alex so much very much, xoxoxox, with all of my heart and soul, and that morning, I did cry to think that he felt that I didn’t love him as much as I did back then, as I do, more than he realizes. I felt enouraged that by his message of hope, that we can get through anything together! It is the strength of love that will be the glue that won’t break, and I bless the future each day. I promise you Miss Isabel, that I will take good care of Alex, as he does me, as his love does give me wings to fly, and I wouldn’t trade a moment that we spend together for the world!

    I always am sure to keep everyone in my thoughts and prayers, sending love to all. I think that we all as a family can overcome obstacles, that are meant to harm and hinder us, and I do apologize to all of you for being unlike myself. I feel that all that we’ve built is very important and I thank God for bringing each of you into my life.

    love to all,

    One of my friends told me in a personal message that she feels like the band is willing to open up on a more personal level now… I agree! I think that YFE has always been exposed but now, we can feel and understand more about who they are through their introspections.

    Somehow, we end up realizing that…aren’t we all the same after all?!
    For me, this is what being ”one” is all about!!
    And you are right Miss Isabel the more we jump the more we can touch it!!
