ON JANUARY 7TH 2017, STARTER PLANET'S THIRD ALBUM WAS RELEASED.
THIS DATE WAS BASED ON THE CD'S PRODUCTION AND TIMING FOR THE FIRST QUIET TIME IN THE NEW YEAR FOR MEDIA.
AFTERWARDS A SEARCH FOR JANUARY 7TH WAS MADE THROUGHOUT HISTORY.
WHAT WAS REVEALED WAS A REPEATING THEME OF EXPLORATION AND COMMUNICATION.
THIS THEME SEEMED MORE THAN A COINCIDENCE, BUT FIT WITH STARTER PLANET'S VISION.
HERE IS WHAT WAS FOUND FOR JANUARY 7TH THROUGHOUT HISTORY;

ON ANOTHER NOTE, BELOW ARE SOME THOUGHTS BEHIND A FEW SONGS FROM STARTER PLANET'S PREVIOUS ALBUMS."Peace on Earth" - Imagine a day when everyone collectively knows of our true connection, of being in this together, & that the intentions for the greater good of all benefits each rather than separate paths focused on personal gain. Someday we may begin again, to have a world we'll live peacefully in. And at our generations end, I see a future where we will start one more time with little knowledge of the past. A new world will once again come to be on this Earth,,, Starter Planet.
A spiritual author of our time, Eckhart Tolle calls this "the New Earth", Christ called it "the kingdom of heaven", Buddha called it "the Pure Land", other visionaries like George Harrison saw it through Krishna's vision. Each was leading us to the same place in consciousness. As a phrase for modern times, I call it, "Starter Planet".
"Bigger" - Bigger than our individual selves, bigger than what we thought possible. This song parallels the feeling of tapping into something bigger than oneself, and accomplishing more than believed possible. Through this experience of that deeper Self or Spirit which we were originally and are destined to realize again, we will accomplish more than ever thought possible. We are laden with possibilities for love, peace, and harmony, & there is a strength in that as well. It is my opinion that we will all harness this energy entering our consciousness and build towards a heaven on earth.
"Trees" - "I remember Trees, and untouched fields,,, no radio waves all through the air". There is a world that exists behind the noise & energy that blocks it out, a world in which the mind can more easily re-connect. The next time the power goes out and all of the electrons no longer race through this superficial world we've built, remember to notice the change you feel, a change that goes beyond the absence of lights and sounds, the world is calm, the atmosphere is different, and the mind is clear.
"They Want it All" - and a little more. Envy & jealousy is what comes from those who fail to see their own gifts hidden behind what appears better in others. Their insecurities can get the best of them, & at times, others. We all share an imperfect world, or is it? It's been my experience that the things in life we feel permanent, even simple things good or bad can be temporary. As for me, I'll wait for the light that makes the darkness disappear, in a garden not made by man. I feel just as I've always felt, that I'm just passing by on my way to somewhere else. More deeply I feel I've had many lives which distances my connection to only this one.
