Experience is a brutal teacher.

If you would cooperate then sadness is only at the start. But the rewards are freedom of self & a detachment to the traps of acceptance & approval. I am mainly talking to myself most of the times when I realized this common human agenda. Right here, right now. Yes, this very moment, the smallest of all stillness & peace of the deadened soul adding brightness to your perceptions. Perhaps even to aid the regeneration process of your humanity. & it helps when you are at your weakest moments. Frees the human spirit without any need to cooperate blindly to unnecessary expectations from yourself & others. But, its mostly yourself that is the common enemy. & when you are at war with yourself, the product is hate. Gets bigger without any relenting outside of your control when you don't recognise this domino effect. Actually just got back from church service & this seems to be the biggest questions in present day life of fellow believers. Brothers, sisters, congregations, etc. Just boils down that this is the very thing hindering the house of faith from really shining God's love to a lost & broken world. No cliche about it, & as a matter of truth, this is the only thing that can make someone as relevant as the very truth that we all pursue blindly in most cases whether we like it or not, regardless of background, creed &/or religion. When we live to not feed our own egos & pride, it can shake you up but its reward is fullness & clarity, whether in little or plenty. If not, this is the only thing that gives fruit to human suffering. Otherwise, the world is how we know it & it will always be that way. False security, season messiahs, & aimlessly beating the air. For most, only a few can make this way of life make sense. Yet, to others, it just doesn't quite cut it. If you're honest enough, you might want to put on your Sherlock Holmes hat & go for gold. From everything in your streets, the television, your circle of friends you will soon accept that that life operates on one theme. Unless, you get your hands dirty & honestly ask yourself why things are the way they are, yet everyone seems to be happy just to go along the same tired way. Its not a philosophical question as much as it is a common observation with too many hidden agendas enough to make you jump out of your seat & say, well, 'doesn't this stink'. Boils down to a single element in life. This would be to my best answer which is, no pain, no gain, but to the very best & greatest of them all, nothing much more can come through for you but rewards you will never find here though here is a great place to start. To God be the glory. Amen.

Where I have most resonated with.

Hello, to whomever is reading this. My name is Paulo Yarisantos, a Filipino Australian immigrant living in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. I am a beatmaker/musician & producer & part time blogger (when I can) and a seeker of God's living waters within the human soul. This blog is totally run by me and the thoughts are inspired by what I firmly believe in based on experience, starting with the littlest observations before these 'thoughts' begin manifesting themselves. Its just a matter of clarity before one can truly interpret the things I write about. So feel free to scroll through. The following tracks represent where I have been at creatively using minimum technology all completed & mixed using freeware plugins and general production techniques. Quite the outcome production-wise and here are the sum of some of my favourite pieces I collaborated and completed both by myself and with the help of others. Sound results, great work for general media presentatio…

The business of doing & simple daily practices that enhances productivity.

What's productivity? How do you define its measure? How do you view it based on your priorities? What decides where you put your focus, time & energies on? These questions are what we most often quietly ask ourselves in our subconscious though often times, due to debris, fail to hear our most distinct voices as we are choked by the things & concerns of this world. My field of interest (sometimes a little obsessive, which is ok), being the general creative industries, specifically in music, its very difficult to see things as they appear & personally, I pray everyday to gain clarity within it all as a daily creative. We are in the age of free media, & for the musician, that's generally not what we want. Its not reasonable to pursue the record industry due to exhausted business models caused by the internet. On the other hand, its the most important thing in my life, though however questionable. Not because there's no income from it, but just because of the b…

Questions of faith & reasoning.

Well, 2018. This makes this my very first entry for the year. I am caught up in the words I may have or haven't read about &/or spoke of in my early days of seeking the Christian faith & what I write about in this blog. & I am happy I have questioned myself & how scripture even may be still applicable today. Or if this didn't, it'd be still honestly the question of how it ever really did. I am a spiritual person & whether nature of belief is perfect, consider questions that points to the imperfection in you. The imperfections in us. Knowledge is worth nothing without further benefit. Thus, causing one to start questioning the reasons of why even bother seeking utopia when all else is hardly reached & seldom understood. Scripture for example raises a lot of issues, questions, fears & doubts. & double the trouble. Pretty scary to be real with it. Its what fuels my drive, desire & passion to communicate these specific questions through art …
