Jason Mraz Resolves to Be Love

Jason Mraz Resolves to Be Love

Singer/songwriter Jason Mraz shares new insightful thoughts in his latest (and very long) MySpace update. Check it:

On travel: As usual, instead of souvenirs I brought home so many wonderful new thoughts, having enjoyed enlightened activities of real peace. I participated in ceremonies intended for expansion, balance and oneness, for the closing of the gaps within our selves and between each other. I saw places I had never dreamed I would see, tasted flavors I never knew existed, and spoke in languages of love I didn’t know I had the capacity for.

On being spiritual, not religious: That’s enough of my spiritual banter, not to be confused with religious banter, since religion limits the amount of mystery we’re truly able to embrace. Religion often forces us to find one god whereas being spiritual simply means to feel the unbelievable power in all things. Such as, I believe in the undeniable power of you. Truly.

Click inside to read Jason‘s pearls of wisdom…

Our minds can play mean tricks on us, so it is important not to identify with any of that potential & hazardous thought up there. Evil thoughts such as, “I’m not good enough,” “I’m too tired or high strung for that” Or worse, “I’m ugly” can create ourselves as exactly those thoughts. Instead, embrace that you at this very moment are perfect. Affirm to your Self, “I am f—ing Awesome!” The culmination of billions of years of evolution has created this moment with you in it — and quite a lucky star you are to experience all this.

Did you ever stop to think that the Universe decided to have a (insert your name) experience? It isn’t the other way around. You, whoever you think you are, can’t heal your bones. You don’t make your heart beat. You don’t have to sit and think about making your food digest. If you have a child, you aren’t the one inside it making it tick and commanding it to grow. The Universe is at work in so many wonderful ways, and it doesn’t stop just because we begin to think we know everything in the adult system. Hell, everything we know is just a story that we’ve made up to help us organize this reality anyway. And since it’s only a story — feel free to change it at any time.

That’s enough of my spiritual banter, not to be confused with religious banter, since religion limits the amount of mystery we’re truly able to embrace. Religion often forces us to find one god whereas being spiritual simply means to feel the unbelievable power in all things. Such as, I believe in the undeniable power of you. Truly.

I know my job wouldn’t exist without listeners and readers, those who share my joy and my journeys thru the time and space. I would still have my art, but the vibrations wouldn’t be as strong without the audiences that gather and the collective souls who sing from their cars and within their showers. You make the art more immediate by accepting it, applying it, and continuing to share it on your own plain.

Recently I was turned onto the work of the 13 indigenous Grandmothers; An action team of women from the four corners of the globe who have formed an alliance to bring balance to Mother Earth and all her inhabitants for the next seven generations to come. To do work intended for seven generations is a remarkably selfless act indeed. Imagine making something that you know is meant for someone 200 years from now. It’s like planting a tree. In your lifetime you may not be able to swing from it’s branches, but long after you’re gone, many families will.

The same thought can be applied to consciousness. Are you choosing to think it’s too late to save the planet because you’re not seeing immediate results? Are you personally choosing not to change your diet and bad habits because you think it will make this week suck? Well, think of that distant you in the future who will look back and hug you for the powerful shift in consciousness you decided to make right now.

For the planet and its inhabitants who are still evolving, we may not SEE a world of enlightened beings who coexist with nature, but we can certainly SEED it.

If you want to make a literal contribution to the seeding of the future — Check out the Millennium Seed Bank, the largest conservation project ever conceived.

If that moves you, Check this out!
In short, its a volunteer organization of bloggers who do two things: tell people about the MSB (Millennium Seed Bank), and tell MORE people about the MSB.
It’s an attention generation exercise! How much attention can we generate? And the best part is that all the proceeds go literally straight to the MSB to help them do their thing, so it’s a win/win/win all around.

If you want to play immediately with seeds, pick up some Black Caraway Seeds the next time you feel a cold coming on. Just chew a small handful a few times a day to boost in the immune and fight the cold. This remedy, like so many others, proves the earth has all the medicine we’ll ever need and then some.

There are many people around the world who are still connected to the Earth, who see that we DO rely on her gifts, that we live on her body, that we, ourselves sprouted from Nature. Modern society, city life, and TV technology fool us too often and we forget our roots. Protect the air and water, all that which gives us life and learn from what the plants are trying hard to teach us.

Also, Lisa Hannigan’s album, Sea Sew, came out today. Get it.

More to come.
Glad to be back.

so true Jason, ….I’m happy for you.

I just love you Jason I think you are the best thing that has happened lately. Your poetic spirit and positive energy are a true joy in a time of horrible music. I feel you so strongly how can I give you a hug?
Hope you don’t mind that I’m a guy…you seem so open and natural and relaxed and calm…you are really wanted and adored! I hope to see more of you in the future…if you continue to be a Superstar please know it’s my prayers coming true.

I love Jason. He is a very sincere artist. That’s so hard to find. He is different from fake artist like John Mayer.

WHO IS THIS GUY?
AND, NO I’M NOT LIVING UNDER A ROCK AS OF YET.
BUT MAYBE I SHOUD BE.

you’re real awesome keep bashing religion… imbécile!

Thank you for sharing this! Jason Mraz is a ‘light’! His music continues to lift me and moves me to dance happy. I hope that more folks in the world find loving ways to live…with peace and gratitude!

He seems a little “out there” to me.

Interesting. “Bashing” religion…I absolutely love Jason and his music is wonderful, but it sounds like he doesn’t except religion because it might require him to have some boundaries. Maybe he should realize that we all need boundaries in life, or else things would be too chaotic, more so than right now. Disregarding religion is a cheep way out in my opinion. Make a commitment and go somewhere in life. Fame and fortune is good for now, but in the long run it will get you nowhere.

ive been a fan for years…my friends think im obsessed but i just think that im admiring…anyways, gosh! he’s soo insightful and so neutral its beautiful!

This doesn’t look like a deeply thought-out and considered opinion about a subject that deserves it. Over the centuries, religion enabled people to focus their spiritual work and both develop insights and transmit them to future generations. This is not to say that religion is perfect or that the divine does not reveal things outside of religion, but I will say that, without religion and the kind of dedication to spiritual searching that religion enables, none of the current crop of spirituality would even be possible, because there would be no hard-won foundational beliefs and experiences to pick from, or react against.

Roseley, obviously you don’t understand anything other than what has been put in front of you. Religion only has as much meaning as we apply to it.

Too stupid and afraid to open your mind and too stubborn and arrogant to learn.

Does he think he’s some kind of great philosopher or something? I’m confused..

Well Brandon, are you saying that I am too stupid and afraid to open my mind? Because you don’t even know who I am or my beliefs or what I’m about. “…religion limits the amount of mystery we’re truly able to embrace. Religion often forces us to find one god whereas being spiritual simply means to feel the unbelievable power in all things.” Just read it. Think about. I am a very open person but I also stand up for things that are important to me. Jason has some very insightful thoughts, but he completely disregards religion. If he is so profound, maybe he should actually tackle the subject of religion. Thats all I have to say.

Jason Mraz is so wise & talented. I love the music that he makes & the powerful things he has to say. He is a truly amazing artist & people should learn to be more open to what he has to say. That’s all.

@Rosely:

Totally agree! no wise or smart person can lead a trully peaceful life without religion despite of religion you follow.

Peace!
