Jerry Garcia

Here is a message/poem I’d like to share with this drawing.

Life is a beautiful dance of energy.

Vibrations frequencies and energy all around.

To express oneself in words is quite difficult sometimes.

Life just is.

Life is here and now.

Without the here and now.

Here and now would not exist.

Everything expresses itself to you with no explanation.

Everything you see before your eyes is life itself expressing itself to you.

The “colors” “shapes” and “dimensions” you see are expressing themselves to you.

Everything just is.

Everything expresses itself to you in energy.

Man created language.

Language is a form of art or expression.

Now here “I” go to express myself the best “I” can.

Whoever this “I” is we speak of.

“I” does not exist.

“I” only exist because “you,” told “i” that “i” exist.

There are the thoughts within your mind.

As well as the thinker or “person” behind so-called thoughts.

Neither exists.

Everything is a concept.

Sure you may “know” more than “i.”

Do you “know” that you “know.”

Or does “know itself” know more.

“I” believe everything holds it’s own consciousness or a form of energy.

Everything just is.

Often words can not express anything.

The energy itself expresses itself to you.

Everything is connected.

Positive negative.

Yes no.

Left right.

Up down.

Dark Light.

Happy sad.

Love fear.

Back front.

In out.

Could go on forever.

Everything is relative.

Without “you.”

“I” would not exist.

Lately my mind or subconscious mind.

The mind that controls you 95% of the time.

Has been at a still.

No noises or voices going on.

A complete form of meditation.

The conscious mind controls you 5% of the time.

Conscious means to “know” what oneself is doing.

Whatever it is you are “doing.”

Possibly the “doing” is “doing” “you.”

Most people are unconsciously living their lives through programs and conditioning.

To live within the worse timeline there is.

Manifesting the most negative moment to occur out of all moments.

In most people’s timelines, most choose their destiny to be the worst it can be.

“They” will try to break you down to nothing to take control of your every action, thought and move.

Controlling you similar to a rat in a race.

A robot that is programmed with no individual self.

Instead each person or robot holding the same information.

Nothing “creative.

Nothing “imaginative.”

Creation is within my soul.

Take control of “I.”

Don’t become a victim of your surroundings.

Once you become a victim life is lived within fear.

Once you become living life in love and creation life is lived in higher vibrations.

When I say “they” I’m referring to the system.

The system wants us divided.

The system wants us killing each other.

The system wants us to look like fools while they seem to look flawless.

In the end, everyone plays the “fool.”

To say you “know” correct from incorrect is foolish.

One does not know anything.

One knows what they wish to know.

To be a racist, prejudice, bigot, sexist, etc…

Any form of degrading another.

“I” does not understand.

Whenever approaching or talking to an individual.

“I” pays attention and does not judge a book by its cover.

Understand a few pages of someone’s life before you use that ego of yours.

Fear is within the hearts of many people.

Let love guide you and not fear.

Babylon system is failing.

The power is within the people, not the government.

Once you give a politician your money they control your every move, thought and idea.

Once you give your money to a politician they control your life and family.

To sell your soul similar to most people.

Or to never hide in fear of revealing your greatest version to the universe.

Be a robot or be oneself.

The “choice” is yours.

Free yourself of your conditioning and programming.

Be in control of your destiny.

Love over fear.

In fear, anyone or anything can control you.

With the power of love, you are in control.

To have control but to have no control.

Control in a loving positive way.

Not control in an evil vain way.

It is not control we are seeking.

Control gets you nowhere.

Let go of oneself.

To let go of oneself is to drop your control and then you are letting love guide you instead of fear.

To be a victim of one’s surroundings.

Or to go within and take a hold of your subconscious mind.

Be greater today than you were yesterday.

Baby steps.

There is no top of the pyramid.

Life is a never-ending process.

Drop your ego and set yourself free.

Attachment is one of the worst things any individual can do.

Ego only gets you so far.

The soul has infinite love vibrating in all directions.

Let love guide you.

Let fear guide you.

The “choice” is yours.

Become a victim of your surroundings.

Unless that is you wish to go within yourself and begin healing oneself.

Perfect does not exist.

If perfect existed.

Well, then nothing would exist.

We live in an imperfect world.

Life is not a competition.

To live in lower vibrations.

To live in higher vibrations.

Fear.

Love.

I love each and every brother and sister.

I wish for no one to get hurt.

I want the best for everyone.

Aren’t we supposed to “love thy neighbor as thyself?”

If anything most people are enemies with their neighbor.

To live your conditioned life.

To free oneself.

Living within vibrations of love.

Sure many will not agree with anything I say here.

“Kill me now.”

It seems to be that “violence” is the only answer.

That’s all “i” ever learned from anyone.

Very few people have actually “taught” me anything.

Life is just a happening.

Appreciate the happening.

Before all the happening ends.

To be aware.

To be unaware.

In the blink of an eye, you will be dead.

One moment you were here.

The next thing that happens is your soul transcends out of your body.

“Energy” is for sure real.

If “you” tell me energy is not real.

Well, then I guess nothing is real.

To be thyself or to be a self someone created you into.

To live a life of a lie.

To live within the truth.

The “truth” will set you free.

Living within a fantasy is easier than living within the truth.

Let me repeat myself one more time.

The “truth” will set you free.

Live within love not fear my brothers and sisters.

Much love

Here are a few quotes I would like to share by Jerry Garcia. I relate to what he says within each quote. I am sure many other individuals will as well.

-Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.

-The process of selecting the tone on the guitar is an aesthetic process like any other, so you try a lot of different things

-once in awhile you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right

-The real part was the spiritual part. There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go, no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone.

-If you’re able to enjoy something, to devote your life to it or a reasonable amount of time and energy, it will work out for you.

-You do not merely want to be considered just the best of the best. You want to be considered the only one who does what you do.

“We are experiencing a real confusion here in the United States, you know. Why is it OK to drink, but it’s not OK to take drugs? Blah, blah, blah. What’s a crime? What’s criminality? What can you do, what can’t you do, and so forth. All these things are really confusing. A lot of it is really contradictory; it doesn’t really make sense.”

-What we’re thinking about is a peaceful planet. We’re not thinking about anything else. We’re not thinking about any kind of power. We’re not thinking about any kind of struggles. We’re not thinking about revolution or war or any of that. That’s not what we want. Nobody wants to get hurt. Nobody wants to hurt anybody. We would all like to be able to live an uncluttered life. A simple life, a good life. And think about moving the whole human race ahead a step, or a few steps.

-What a long strange trip it’s been

-All I know is, if you listen to society, you’ll never get anywhere

There are many more quotes I could post that I can relate to.

  1. I’ve been a Deadhead since I was a kid. I’ve been to hundreds of concerts. I had the pleasure of meeting Jerry & the rest of the band backstage at the concert at Cornell University in April, 1981, an experience I will never forget. I was twenty-one & was wearing a royal blue satin jacket that I still have but alas, it is too small for me now.

    Love the picture & your poem.

  3. Ah Brandon,
    As always good to see your post and hope you are well.
    What serendipidy (think that’s the correct word) or synchronicity.
    The other day I coloured in another part of one of your drawings and again the process seemed highly significant.
    I plan to journal and reflect further and once I feel I can leave your drawing I will do a blog post.
    All ok here in England so far 🙏
    My wish for peaceful times in U.S.A.
    Take care. 🙂
