PEACE THROUGH MUSIC
MUSIC CAN BE AN AMAZING BRIDGE BETWEEN PEOPLE,
TRANSCENDING ALL MANNERS OF PREJUDICES. WHEN MUSIC
POURS FREELY FROM THE HEART, PEOPLE ARE UNITED IN ITS FLOW.
IT IS A VEHICLE WITH GREAT POTENTIAL, AND IT SHOULD
BE USED IN A POSITIVE AND RESPONSIBLE MANNER.

World Peace Through Music

IT’S NOT OFTEN THAT I DOODLE, BUT ONE DAY SOME OF THE CONTENTS OF MY HEART JUST SORT OF SPILLED ONTO A PIECE OF PAPER IN THE FORM OF A SKETCH. THE DESIGN REFLECTED SOME OF THE THINGS MOST IMPORTANT TO ME… MY LOVE OF PLAYING MUSIC, AND DREAMS OF UNIVERSAL HARMONY AMONG SENTIENT BEINGS. IT REFLECTED MY BELIEF THAT MUSIC, A VEHICLE WITH INCREDIBLE POTENTIAL, SHOULD BE CREATED WITH GOOD INTENTION. EVERY NOW AND THEN, I PULLED OUT THE PAPER AND PLAYED WITH THE DESIGN WHICH CONTINUED TO MORPH. EVENTUALLY, IT REACHED A POINT WHERE IT SEEMED COMFORTABLE.

ALONG THE WAY, THE THOUGHT OCCURRED THAT SHARING THE SYMBOL WITH OTHERS COULD HELP CIRCULATE THE IDEA OF POSITIVISTIC MUSIC. (YEP, THAT’S ACTUALLY A REAL WORD. I THOUGHT I WAS COINING A NEW ONE, BUT SPELLCHECKER DIDN’T FLAG IT, SO I LOOKED IT UP.) SO THEN… HOW TO SHARE IT ?

THE FIRST WAY WAS ORDERING A SMALL BATCH OF PAPER STICKERS TO GIVE TO PEOPLE. LATER WOULD COME AN UPGRADE TO THE LAMINATED STICKERS, WHICH ARE MUCH MORE DURABLE.

NEXT CAME A FEW TEE SHIRTS THAT A FRIEND SILK-SCREENED IN HIS BACKYARD SETUP. I KEPT A FEW FOR MYSELF, BUT GAVE MOST OF THEM AWAY. THEN CAME TIME TO TAKE A LEAP AND GET A RUN OF TEES DONE AT A REAL SILK-SCREENING SHOP. THE SHIRTS WEREN’T DONE RIGHT, BUT I WAS STUCK WITH THEM BECAUSE REFUSING THEM WOULD HAVE CREATED A BAD SITUATION FOR A FRIEND WHO WAS INVOLVED. FORTUNATELY, THE FOLKS WHO’VE DONE THE SILK-SCREENING SINCE THEN HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB.

THE NEXT STEP IN THE EVOLUTION WAS TO GET SOME TEE SHIRTS EMBROIDERED, AND THEN OTHER ITEMS FOLLOWED, INCLUDING HATS AND LADIES’ TOPS. ALL OF THE EMBROIDERING HAS BEEN DONE LOCALLY BY A VERY NICE FAMILY AND THE GOOD PEOPLE WHO WORK WITH THEM.

DISCOVERING TAGUA MARKED THE NEXT LEAP FORWARD. AS SOON AS I FOUND OUT ABOUT TAGUA, I BEGAN A QUEST TO GET THE SYMBOL RENDERED IN IT. IT TOOK AWHILE AND THERE WERE SOME DEAD ENDS, BUT I FINALLY GOT HOOKED UP WITH SOME REALLY GOOD PEOPLE WHO ARE SAVING THEIR RAINFOREST BY WORKING WITH THIS RENEWABLE RESOURCE. THEIR STORY IS ON THE TAGUA PAGE.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE REFER TO THE SYMBOL AS A LOGO, BUT I DON’T SEE IT AS SUCH. I THINK OF LOGOS AS BEING GRAPHIC IMAGES PRODUCED FOR THE BRANDING OF COMMERCIAL VENTURES, AND THAT ISN’T AT ALL HOW OR WHY THE SYMBOL WAS CREATED. IT WASN’T CREATED AS PRODUCT, ONLY AS SOMETHING TO SHARE, AND TO HELP ENCOURAGE THE POSITIVE. INITIALLY IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF “WHAT CAN I AFFORD TO BUY AND GIVE AWAY ?” IT MAY SEEM SILLY, BUT I WAS AFRAID THAT SELLING MIGHT DIMINISH THE IMPACT OF THE SYMBOL’S INTENTION, AND I RESISTED DOING IT. THE REALITY, OF COURSE, WAS THAT SELLING THINGS WOULD MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR MORE PEOPLE TO HAVE THE SYMBOL. I’LL HAVE TO ADMIT THAT FRIENDS HAD TO BEAT ME OVER THE HEAD FOR A PRETTY GOOD WHILE BEFORE I FINALLY GAVE INTO THE IDEA. NOW I’M GLAD THAT I LISTENED, AND MORE PEOPLE THAN I COULD HAVE PROVIDED FOR ON MY OWN ARE SHARING THE SYMBOL.
