Everybody Hurts


- comment to BBC article on the song used for Haiti aid.


This was very likely the last track my daughter listened to before throwing her hand.
Suffering is universal. Sure, ego can make its game out of comparisons and judgements - but under all the crap is directly felt dissonant and isolated sense of life that most have to hide from - by playing a mask.
I like the song in the universal sense of - we are all the same - beneath appearances. The capacity to feel is also the capacity of Soul.
Music can bridge from the isolated sense of self to a sense of communion with life - but only if that is allowed. To lose Soul is to gain a meaningless world - because it is essentially loveless.
