“In order to understand a melody, you need to deconstruct the melody currently in place. By doing this you enable your senses to zone in on the nuances that make up the colors of the music.”
Life and music share very similar traits. Just as in music, we take steps in our every day life pursing something – a direction. In the case of music, we tend to follow the direction of the notes. In the noble pursuit, we often find ourselves focusing in on the end of the song, and missing the steps that it took to get there.
Each step in a musical composition is incredibly importation. Whether the step is technical, musical, or emotional each step has it’s place. As we become more and more aware of how we view the world, we should take time to deconstruct our steps in order to understand them more clearly. By taking a moment and deconstructing our lives we are placed in a position of constructional vision. Meaning, in this state of hyper-focus, we are able to be clear and accurate in how are life is currently constructed. This can be marvelous or traitorous land to travel.
First, we need to approach this journey into our deconstructed life in a constructive manner. We should not view this as a time to outlandishly judge ourselves. Nor should we use this as an opportune time to nitpick our nature blemishes. Just as a follow has dirt on it, so do we. This dirt, however, is what makes us naturalistic human beings. Rather, we should focus on a subjective view of these parts. Viewing them as parts of a whole. Ultimately just as you and I are parts of the whole of the Universe.
Therefore, the parts(not matter how seemingly insignificant)that make up your life, are the very gears that turn the Universe. With this view of these parts you have no other option but to be excited, as you should. The simple fact that you are able to step back and subjectively look at what makes up your live is magically spectacular! Therefore, the proposal thereafter would be of change. Are you able to change these parts of your life, move them around, switch them up? If so, the seeing of this can be massively transformational. And it all started with deconstructing the parts of your life to a skeletal view.
Below you will find an MP3 that I specifically composed for this article. “De-Con” is track that starts out with two simple themes. Then, after I have played the themes twice – I deconstruct them. I want this song to be a model for how you might apply subjective positive life deconstruction to your own life.
As you can see it is very important to understand where you are currently and how you stand with the parts. Remember, the parts of your life are there for a reason. Whether that reason is for good or bad is simple up to you and if you view them as beneficial to you or not. If they need to be change, altered, or kept in check deconstruction should be your first go to. Step back and view things as parts of a puzzle, making up your life. If you aren’t happy with a particular area, step back, move the part, and commence forward.
Ultimately, your life will run in a cohesive, fluid, and orderly fashion. My deepest wish is that this will enable you to change your life at will, constructing your life from a deconstructed past.
