There are moments that emerge in life where you hear
things being said that others fail to grasp or sounds being
heard that weren't directly specified in clarity and are missed
by the majority. They seemed to slip in without warning,
almost indistinguishable in meaning and cunning to a point
that you're not sure that what you heard was completely understood
or the meaning was interpreted incorrectly.
There was possibly a touch of negative or expressive content
hidden somewhere between the idle words or sounds that was
somehow directed at you. The meaning that you thought was
introduced by the phrase or a sound perceived in a fleeting
moment that passed by before its implication could be
identified and wasn't exactly clear. Not necessarily reasoned
the words or sounds forced you to succumb to a personal analogy
of what you have just experienced. There was no direct
influence in the words, motions or sound to depict a firm meaning.
So its left up to the listener or viewer, the recipient, to
decode the hidden message and react or accept the meaning as
it was thought to be understood.
Life has its unusual tendencies to lead someone to indirectly
speak their mind so circuitously that the meaning is astute
and may go undetected by most that hear. With sound and music,
the same rule may be applied. What you think you heard may not
be what the author intended you to hear unless you delve
deeper into the meaning of the phrase.
Music follows the same rules of the recipients understanding
yet more subjective to the listener. What someone assumes
their perception of the passage they heard was indeed purposeful,
as opposed to the meaning that was intended by the artist and
opens many perspectives on the exact same sound. If you can't comprehend
that which lies beyond the surface, you will never truly empathize
the meaning of the phrase.
Some phrases whether being musical or verbal are intended by
the author to pass this hidden meaning that delivers an emotion,
feeling or signal, that will be disregarded or overlooked
unless the addressee is perceptive enough comprehend the obscure
We must remember that most people endure life asleep without
realizing that there is a universe outside of their own personal
space. These people only comprehend on planes of existence that
are parallel within close proximity with their own. The term
"deer in the headlights" expresses a reaction from
these type personalities after these boundaries of discernment
have been challenged beyond their capacity.
The key is perception of not only words, but also everything
around you. We should watch every leaf that blows in the wind.
Listen to every breeze and raindrop that may be singing a
song and never stop discovering the many miracles being born
in every sight, sound, word or external influence you may
encounter with each passing second. These are the real
universes that we pass through daily and that so many people overlook
and take for granted.
