I dabble in buddhism and I think I have my answer. In Buddhism there isa list of 6 things to do with yourself – six tidbits of wisdom. The first one is generosity. And one of the forms generosity can be fearlessness. That’s what I mean. I don’t mean to say arrogant or brave. Bravery requires a situation where you are scared of something but you do it anyway. Fearlessness means there is no fear so it does not require any courage or bravery.
I’m thinking about a series on Netflix that I recently watched. The interpretation can go any way for you so I’m not going to say which series it is, but I will say the main actor was absolutely fearless. One thing he did is that he showed up in different disguises and personalities and accents, and every single one of those was fearless acting as far as I can tell.
This was inspiring. So many people have a background of anxiety or fear, and witnessing fearlessness fights this anxiety and is extremely inspiring. I’m thinking of how this relates to composing and that is a bit a of a puzzle to win, but I”d say in brief it means that you write pieces with no fear and really communicate exactly what you want to communicate. This might effect how fearlessness manifests and it doesn’t need to be an inspiration for music writing – it can be an inspiration for just about anything. Ultimately living your life. That, in my estimation, is why fearlessness is listed as part of generosity. So many of us, including me some of the time, have a background of fear that can be a dreadful thing that never leaves you.
If I compose fearlessly that’ll end writer’s block and increase work ethic. I now know what I’m trying to do. Inspiring fearlessness, or helping people find peace, is a beautiful thing. That is what I want to do.
