PURPOSE – Music Themes

Maddie chose the music theme PURPOSE for this week
Must ones dreams be intact for there to be PURPOSE?
DREAM IS COLLAPSING —- Hans Zimmer — Inception
5min. 53sec.

How do you know if what you are doing has PURPOSE? Are your activities just filling time for the PURPOSE of keeping busy? Must a life of PURPOSE have meaning that is understandable to others, or even to one’s self, to be worthwhile? Can we live worthwhile lives and not be aware of PURPOSE?

“In traditional Finnish culture, the “tenhi” is an old sage or shaman standing at the threshold between this world and the next” http://en.prophecy.de/tenhi
Can a life of good works be lived with love, and good intent, with PURPOSE, if all within is hopeless despair?
Hedningarna – Förtvivlans
2min. 14sec.

Förtvivlans = despair – Swedish
Can a misguided life still have good PURPOSE? Am I misguided if the dragons that I slay are not the same dragons that you want to be slayed?  Who’s PURPOSE is misguided? Must we slay our own personal dragons, ourselves? Does the blood of dragons have healing powers? If you slay your own dragons, does that process provide healing? Can we help each other with the slaying of dragons, or must we do it all alone. Must we give up if no one else understands which dragons need to be slayed in order for healing to take place? Is accepting help part of healing? Is it the healing that is actually the PURPOSE? Is it possible to live lives of love and service, even without being healed ourselves?
3min. 14sec.

Is it enough that people from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds can meet together to happily play music?  Must everyone first come to a consensus of the PURPOSE of the Universe, the PURPOSE of life, the PURPOSE of each other, the PURPOSE of religion, in order to come together for no other PURPOSE than to make music? Is music enough reason to put such disagreements aside?
Ja ämmät ne itki (perinteistä kansanmusiikkia) & Tampsi-Jaakon jenkka
2min. 30sec.

Ja ämmät ne itki (perinteistä kansanmusiikkia) = And they Wept (traditional folk) – Finnish
Johnny has chosen as our next music theme: ‘Competition’. Can it be healthy? Is it necessary?
Maddie:  ♪Purpose – Music …
Johnnie:  Johnny

Eva:   Purpose? Who has one? …

Willow:  Music Themes : Purpose!
Has your PURPOSE in life been chosen for you? Has your PURPOSE in this life been pre-ordained? How much of your PURPOSE in this life is chosen by your self, how much by your circumstances? Are your circumstances created by fear? Is your PURPOSE guided by fear? What fears do you try to avoid? Are you afraid of hard work? Failure? Rejection? Loss of face? Truth? Not knowing enough? Pain? Success? Mediocrity? Loss of control? Do you fear surrender? Phobias? Illness? Getting old? Death?
FEAR — “Fear doesn’t shut you down.  Fear wakes you up.” —DIVERGENT — Hans Zimmer– Junkie XL
3min. 37sec.

Is it our PURPOSE in this life to live and remain as pleasant and comfortable as possible? Is the work of the learning and experiencing, as a PURPOSE for life, more like the work of moving mountains than relaxing comfortably, or perhaps even existing in misery, while waiting for someone else to move the mountains? Perhaps our PURPOSE is to learn to ask? Perhaps part of our Earthly lesson is that we are unable to move mountains alone.  A large portion of our PURPOSE is to learn that we cannot do it all on our own.  We all need help. Some of us must learn humility.

  1. Btw, dear Bear, I have done a version of a theme on competition, though I’m not quite sure it fits properly. Feel free to link or not to link to it when I post. I did have fun doing it though.

    • Je suis heureux que vous appréciez la musique.


        • Multi-language pun 🙂


          • Finest kind.
            Oh I finally saw Divergent. Thou Shall Conform—or die.

          • The book series is a trilogy. I don’t think there more movies yet. The over all message is different, but they are written for “Young Adults” ie Teeny Boppers.

            Speaking of amusing character roles, I just watched Noah (rented DVD in a red envelope). There are some Watchers that look like Ents dipped in mud and hardened. Hermione is Noah’s daughter in law, and gives birth. The Selkie from Secret of Roan Inish is Noah’s wife. Noah is Russell Crowe without armor (he does have a leather jerkin) and … this really was funny to me… Methuselah was Anthony Hopkins. I imagine the sit-down-dinner-club is giving him a hard time. 🙂


          • As for Noah–the film–I’ve seen approximately the last half of it and your references are all duly noted–including the Ents connection.
            I found this film very disturbing on multiple levels–partly because of its Old Testament story telling flavor–tone, presentation of human nature, characterization, treatment of women etc. Hopkins’ character –well, not quite sure what to think about him at all. I did not go back to the beginning to watch the rest of the film. There’s something about it that I just don’t LIKE at all. Haven’t been able to put my finger on it yet.

          • Off putting. Some of the scenes depicted Noah as a self serving coward, such as when he didn’t rescue the girl in the spring trap. Much of the tech was well done, but some of the “how it happened” ideas area a little bit wrong 🙂 and the general interpretation was different from my own, and those (several) that I am used to.

            I am not a good movie critic as all of my comments are relative terms, relative to what I personally like and don’t like. I like good movies and I don’t like crummy ones. 🙂



          • That’s okay—it’s good enough to know what you like and don’t like and WHY. I tend to stay away from films with such subject matter for a number of reasons–which I won’t go into here. I agree about his refusal to help the girl –that decision clearly damaged his relationship with his son in very deep ways.

    Very strong, robust choices for this week’s theme Bear. I shall have to reserve some time in the middle of the night and immerse myself in your adventure. The Finnish performance is quite elegant and most fitting.
    I love your bonus video/ anecdote about the Finnish women’s attitude on marriage- expect the worst, hope for the best. Perhaps that is considered old fashion realism, but I find it depressing.
    “Once the bride is weeping, the marriage can take place.” – Double ouch! I’m sorta reasonable, strong-willed, controlling type LOL, so I’ll presume Finnish men are not for me, although I do like the song! 😉
    Enjoy your weekend dear Bear.♥

    #5 as asked: My first response was to laugh, sardonically, at the literal translation of that phrase. To answer your questions, I don’t see why we must have all the answers, which is not even possible, to come to some sort of agreement. It seems that by saying, “We don’t have ALL the answers to ALL the questions” that it is just an excuse to perpetuate our disagreements instead of finding common ground on which to build our lives. I believe that it is very possible to put aside our disagreements and make merriment if we could kill or even subdue the pride inside of ourselves that we all carry. We have to care about each other more than ourselves. As long as there are people who are self- serving then I am not sure how anything can be accomplished. However, I am only 38 years old and I am a tad bit cynical about selfish people.
