Rick James - Hollywood: A Story in the Law of Creation
I've always loved the soul and stories I've heard in Rick James' music. As time and life go on, as you change the things you look at, the things you look at change.
Songs you knew in one sense, take on new meaning when a new mental outlook changes what you see in them. The song, Hollywood by Rick James is case in point. Before I began reading/listening to Creating A Bug-Free Mind by Andy Shaw, the song had an entirely different meaning.
It's the story of a young man telling his parents he's leaving home to live out his dream. A dream is a fantastical desire that appears to be out of this world to the dreamer.
He speaks of how he always had this dream and how much he's thought about going for it. He speaks on how he sees himself there already. What the life is like there even though he isn't even there yet. He knows he's going to be there. He's there in his head already. He's just speaking on the first step he has to take to create the life he knows he's going to have. He says he's going to do good in Hollywood. Hollywood being showbiz and his method being music.
These actions are part of creation. First, comes the thought or idea. Then, you visualized what it's like to have the thought fulfilled. See yourself living the idea/desire. Living the idea in your mind makes the spiritual idea an order to the subconscious mind. Thru the subconscious mind, the power of the universal mind is manifested. The actual steps or actions to live out the desire as a reality are all that's needed for the desire to become a reality.
With BELIEF in hand, all Rick James had to do was make music and intuitively make moves that fulfilled his dream.
