Soundtrack of the NOM

Chat about a topic supported by books, TED Talks, podcasts, personal experience, philosophies of mankind mingled with humor (shout out to IOT), and maybe we’ll even do a google hangout or conference call once a month.

Mountain Top by Radwimps.

It is a Japanese band but I promise it's in English and you probably wouldn't even know they are Japanese if I didn't tell you. I love the song. The video is a visual treat but that part is just a bonus to the beautiful song.

"Obey the way you truly believe
Don’t let others rule over you
Life will never be that easy with bag full of
All your Ancestor’s lessons

I’m alone on a mountain top
Nobody can answer me or none of them can follow me
but you climbed up high to the sky above
How do I look from your place right now?

Some might compete their bravery
They carry around in nicest box
Be careful not to forget the right way to open it up
Or you’ll miss when you need it then
You should keep it next to your soul

I’m alone on a mountain top
Nobody can answer me or none of them look straight at me
but You climbed up high to the sky above
How am I supposed to hide my pride?

I’m a dreamer, A believer, no surrender
Don’t even know way turning back
Let’s go deeper, let’s go higher, show me your ego

Obey the way you truly believe
Don’t let others rule over you
Life will never be that easy but hey descendants
Guess that’s all I could say to you
All the rest is now up to you"

Just posted this in support but I felt it should go in here too.. sometimes you have to let people and things go, even if they are family and loved ones.

"I Am Not Nothing"
Beth Crowley

No one ever made me feel as small as you did
No one made me feel as cursed
I'd lie awake in bed just staring at the ceiling
Wondering if things would get worse

I was trapped under your thumb
Believing when you called it love

But I will forgive myself
And start to let it go
Accept that who you chose to be
Was out of my control
And though it might be hard
To begin again
I'll write myself a brand new story
With a happy end
I survived
So tonight
I am taking back my life
And I'll show you
That I am not nothing

I kept my head above the water
'Til the moment when all the elements aligned
And I could fly away to heal my broken spirit
And leave my demons far behind
You always said that I was weak
But the bravest thing I did was leave

So I will forgive myself
And start to let it go
Accept that who you chose to be
Was out of my control
And though it might be hard
To begin again
I'll write myself a brand new story
With a happy end
I survived
So tonight
I am taking back my life
And I'll show you
That I am not nothing

Looking up at the sky
I think I see the start of a sunrise

And I will forgive myself
And start to let it go
Accept that who you chose to be
Was out of my control
And though it might be hard
To begin again
I'll write myself a brand new story
With a happy end
I survived
So tonight
I am taking back my life
And I'll show you
That I am not nothing
I'll show you
That I am not nothing

Lots of good lyrics - more I still need to go through in this thread.

This one resonated with me today:

This was my go to inspiration song from the time it was released. Even during my TBM days, I would return to it when things in the church got tough. Still one of my favourites.
