Rick Rubin – A Sage Of Sorts

So there are legends and then there are legends.

A legend is someone who leaves a profound legacy. An artist who creates beauty with great majesty. The creative who walks the earth in search of inspiration to create more abundance and put out more profundity in this world.

To list all of the awesomeness Rick Rubin has created would be a long list and I will certainly share a portion of some of my favorites here in this post. Rick Rubin’s wikipedia is worth exploring. It’s lengthy and history making.

And certainly he is legend having created some of the greatest hits of all time. My favorites are listed below –

  1. L.L. Cool J – Going Back To Cali

  2. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Blood Sugar Sex Magic

  3. Run DMC – Walk This Way

  4. Jay Z – 99 Problems

  5. Johnny Cash

  6. Metallica – Death Magnetic

However I pay tribute to this great man not only for the world of poetry he has created through the medium of music, but it’s his own evolution that captivates me the most.

It’s have had all of the success in the world and a deeper desire to have deeper awareness. Now this is where a human being becomes remarkable and transforms to elevated status of a sage. When you are gifted creative and are given worldly success in the form of wealth and accolades most would call it quits there, however this sage is in search of more. He knows it’s this deeper awareness that allows the profundity and levels of creativity that come to him in this deeper space. He knows that without this deeper awareness there would be a hollowness and a shallowness he’d be chasing versus the surrender that comes with sitting in silence. In that silence we don’t chase, but we are met with greater awareness. We allow it to come in at it’s own pace through messages, sounds, signals, visions, thoughts, awareness, profundity, grandeur far greater than the eye can see or conjure up.

Watch Rick Rubin tapping into Nowness.
