Thoughts as instruments in the song of life.

See those little rectangular buttons in the pic above? Those are called “faders.” They’re what’s used to adjust levels of instruments. Each fader corresponds with an instrument whether played manually or by generated by machine.

They can be automated; pre-programmed to raise and lower the level of each sound as the song flows.

The engineer (and producer) sits behind the console and steers these up or down according to the sonic placement of each instrument, to enhance the overall sound.

We are like engineers who can adjust the volume and eq of thoughts we nurture, and words spoken to and over us. To compose and construct a beautiful song, we need to assign a place (or not) for each instrument.

This helps to avoid a cacophony of noise that comes with a clashing of frequencies, and reminds us to focus on compiling a good song where instruments (thoughts & words) exist in harmony.

I’m learning how to adjust my own faders, cancel out the noise, and compose a beautiful song.
