Will The Real Prophet Please Stand Up?

May 10, 2019

Now I must be honest: there are many prophets that appeared since Antiquity. And I’m not talking about the Roman and Greek pantheon. Why do we have to have only one God?

My heroes are Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Dire Straits, Deep Purple, Robben Ford, Wes Montgomery, and George Benson. My favorite singers are Bill Withers, Norah Jones, and Last Shadow Puppet. I only have one God at the bass though.

Maybe those who believed in one God didn’t know enough about humanity then. It’s important to talk about it because even Voltaire that I respect believed in one supreme being.

How does it feel to be a God? I can talk about that: it’s like you’re strolling around every day. There’s a kind of magic in the air: people are following you and thanking you for giving them a boost. But in the end, they have to live their own life!

But what kind of prophet can reduce freedom? I went to Greece once and there was writing on the wall: “free your mind and your analysis will be right”.

How Does It Feel To Be Under The Influence?

You know a lot about influences if you read that blog: jazz, blues, soul, rock, funk, and electro. I guess the right influences can help you find the right words. Take for example the song from Clapton “Blues Before Sunrise”. That album called “From The Cradle” could be linked to Nirvana’s “In Utero” since it seems we can’t forget our first years.

I was born in Lebanon in 1980 (the land of the sun). I don’t know if the grass was greener there in 1980 since there was a civil war. People in my family used to denounce those lords of war (meaning the lords of intensity). People like experimenting and I’m not the only one.

The right influences can help you find the right words. Last night a DJ saved my life with a song!

Would You Like Another Mixed Emotion?

Mixed emotions are so cool: it’s complex and you have to work so hard to find the emotion that’s hidden that you start banging your head against the wall. For example, right now I’m experiencing that kind of emotion. The hidden emotion was simply witnessing a murder (maybe). Mark my words: I was the witness of a murder (maybe) at 14 years old.

Sometimes I like to think it was only a motto accident: “I don’t want to go to heaven; none of my friends are there” or maybe “success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm”. If I had to have a motto I guess I would choose the following: “behind the smoke, there must be a war”.

Take for example the time when I dated a girl for 2 and a half years. It seems she transferred me a heavy load because everyone is looking for a place to do that (according to Freud). But I think she wanted me to be an ally and not an enemy.

Why Did God Contact Me To Help Him?

In 2010 I received a Cosmik Debris award and a Boy on the Bridge award. Suddenly God contacted me and told me: “I need help to make you realize that thinking you have time is a mistake. You must give up your evil ways before I stop loving you. Other planets are more advanced in the space race and if they catch you, you got more than 10 years to lose”.

In fact, it’s been 7 million years and we recently sent someone in space. That’s why I think humanity must make love and space the fundamental thing. A lot of things will appear with those fundamentals. Money cannot be our only love.

So, correct me if I’m wrong, if love must be the basis of humanity, then we have to have intensity (but we have to stay in a security/habitable zone).

What Will Happen When The River Runs Free?

As a conclusion, if I’m the last prophet, it means 2 things: first we must remember to party and maybe we need someone to tell us where it’s at; second, we need to stay in the security zone and the sign to watch for is water.

If I make a free association, then I can also conclude that we’re still investigating the scene of the crime. It seems we should see ourselves in a big classroom (the universe is included). Teachers must not leave us alone but watch out for those who are reading their books without any conviction.

7 million years and we know how to party on Earth. Someone will tell us where it’s at in space!
