Watching Springsteen on Broadway on Netflix…
I’m blown away.
I had a pretty long outburst of tears during the segment dedicated to Clarence… Pow, every fucking time!
Even 7 years after…
This show is such a perfect continuation of Bruce’s autobiography.
He got me remembering wonderful details from my childhood while sharing his own.
He got me to reflect about my life, my dreams, my fears, my hopes thanks to his own reflections.
Recently, I have felt called to rekindle with some of his songs that only a few years back were feeling too dark, too deep and filled with shadows for my novice Soul.
But now, I feel comfortable in these waters, having had to explore a bit more of the dark side of myself in the past few years.
I have always struggled to maintain long-term friendships. Probably because from one year to the other, I can completely change skin and be born anew… That doesn’t sit well with consistent relationships, obviously…
But Bruce’s world of music & poetry has always always been there for me to reach out.
He has been the most reliable companion I’ve had in my entire life.
When others were sneaking out of my life after I’ve given them enough of what they needed, Bruce, well he remained there, in my head, bathing me with musical hugs and messages of hope, not asking for much in return, just for me to be true to myself ALWAYS.
Talk about unconditional love…
In my field, a lot of people have spiritual teachers, gurus.
For a long time, I’ve searched for one thinking that I needed one like everybody else but I could never find one. Not one that rang true to me.
One day, I realized that I just didn’t need a spiritual teacher or a guru.
I have Bruce.
He has taught me integrity, hard work and leadership.
He has taught me friendship, love and marriage.
He has taught me how to think for myself, how to rebel.
He has taught me spirituality without using any words before I could even understand English.
Every time I was hearing his music, my Soul would just vibrate in ecstasy, almost exploding.
That’s how I discovered the way to my Soul.
Because he lightened up the path with his magic.
And with each new show, album or book, he lights up new parts of my Soul to explore.
He has been all the role models I needed to be guided in my life.
His words and music have provided the support I needed in the dark as well as the beautiful soundtrack I needed in the light.
I sincerely hope you have someone like that in your life too!
And if not, why not give him a shot?
If he was one of my guides, maybe he can be yours too. 😉
