The desire to be liked or admired by other people is a trap. The pain and tragedy caused by this desire for admiration or approval is painfully obvious in this final interview with Janis Joplin recorded 4 days before her death in 1970. Also, below, a performance of “Ball n Chain” by Janis Joplin.
(Janis Lyn Joplin — January 19, 1943 – October 4, 1970 — was an American singer-songwriter who first rose to prominence in the late 1960s as the lead singer of the psychedelic-acid rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company. She was one of the more popular acts at the Monterey Pop Festival and later became one of the major attractions to the Woodstock festival. Popular songs from her four-year solo career include “Down on Me”, “Summertime”, “Piece of My Heart”, “Ball ‘n’ Chain”, “Maybe”, “To Love Somebody”, “Kozmic Blues”, “Work Me, Lord”, “Cry Baby”, “Mercedes Benz”, and her only number one hit, “Me and Bobby McGee”. )
BALL N CHAIN, performed by Janis Joplin (after you listen to this song, you will understand why “love” is a “ball and chain”!)
In the following short video David Icke offers a simple and eloquent summary of, and solution for, our current situation on Prison Earth. He says that “love” is the solution to dissolve the artificially created energy frequency of fear with which we are constantly bombarded by the prison guards. I suggest that “love” is not a good word as it is far too ambiguous. The actual energetic frequency of “love” is more precisely expressed by the definitions of “appreciation“, which includes understanding and admiration and affinity. It is a delicate discrimination (especially of aesthetic values).A full understanding of a situation. This includes acknowledgment, recognition, realization, knowledge, awareness, consciousness, and comprehension of an object, condition or being. Love is an energy frequency that is most similar to the essence of our Self, as a spiritual entity. It is nearly imperceptible, yet with infinitely potential power.
I think a more useful definition of “love” could be “A willingness and ability to Cause, Understand, Acknowledge and Admire a Bringing Into Being, or Not Being, any State of Existence, in any Universe, as an Immortal Sentient Being”. — LRS
Admiration is the most desirable form of energy one being can give or receive. Everyone is seeking admiration, knowingly or not. When we are admired, or admire others, we feel uplifted and expanded. When our actions, thoughts, or emotions are NOT admired we feel rejected and depressed. It has been said that the universe consists of creations that you not been admired and are still waiting to be admired. So, if you’re not getting the admiration you KNOW you deserve, don’t wait for others to give it to you! Give it to yourself. Here is 12 minutes of applause and cheering you can use to admire YOU!
