Charlie “Bird” Parker, the great jazz alto sax player and philosopher, once said, “don’t be afraid, just play the music.” This is so timely and profound. Worry, doubt, and suspicion hold us back from playing the music. Just play the music. Get on with life regardless of the hurdles. Hurdles make life interesting, and are best for inner growth and practice. No hurdles make life boring. We become complacent. Good days, just play the music. Bad days, just play the music. Music is the flow of life. It harmonizes; it keeps us open and creative. Fear and worry interrupt the musical natural flow. Come home to the present. Stay in the flow. Face fear and doubt with courage never stop playing the music.
