You will most likely have no idea how to relate to what I’m about to tell you.
I don’t believe that each soul is entirely unique, and that some of us share a piece of the same spirit.
I’ve followed Trevor Hall’s music and life journey for a few years now. No other artist has written lyrics that I can more personally relate to.
His thoughts are my thoughts, his quest and journey mirrors the footsteps of my own path. Call it what you will.
Seeing him live tonight in the small, intimate Club Congress in Tucson was one of those moments in life you cherish, hold close to your heart, and remember during times of sadness and joy.
Trevor told a story about his time living with the Hawaiian people, and how they have a story about the “Bowl of Light“. It basically is a philosophy that everyone has a bowl of light within them, all the potential goodness that you can share.
It is easy however to get dark stones in your bowl. Evil and selfishness. There is no room for both the stone and the light, and something will have to give.
The beauty of a bowl though is that all you need to do is turn it upside down and the stones will fall out.
You have the power to control your own Bowl of Light.
He also spoke of the importance of community, and that western culture has us seeking that perfect home, with a fence surrounding you, blocking out the people around you.
This leads to anxiety and depression, things that didn’t exist before the modern era.
We need to support and be a part of our community, to share and be One Love.
At least, that is our Wish Man.
