听到的两种论调：1. 能以爱为业是莫大的幸福；2. 切勿以爱为业。
Love as Career
Two points of view: 1. it's very lucky to make career with what you love; 2. never make career with what you love.
The former - it's too easy to say, more like merely from imagination rather than a practical point of view. If someone really really care, hope the world is pure, then one can burn oneself to create, then the achievement and pain are doubled at the same time. Not everybody is doing this with the same attitude: someone is blaspheming, someone is calculating; the less pure someone is, the more eager someone is to prove his greatness. Every individual's energy is limited. What is left for music if most of the energy is used for calculating? Someone is unavoidable, then the best solution is to meditate - there's nothing right or wrong, it's just the rules of the game is different, if we are different kinds.
The latter, which goes back to the original question, what is the meaning of our life?
Music can dissolve the boundaries of time and space, then we can feel released and smile happily because someone is still doing the same thing with us. One's duty has already been set, and we are just here to carry it out. It's about inheritance and it never stops. The spirit is getting clearer and clearer, just like carrying a relay stick and passing it from one to another. If we can get someone to run together at the same time, then we are very lucky indeed.
I've gradually understood, the team members are actually going towards one direction, just the paths are different. We are expecting to spend full energy in making music, with our whole respect and gratitude, and also, financial support. Some of us chooses to freeze it temporarily, some to have a stable job without spending much energy, some to apply for grants. Then, Jia You! We are like the planets - when we come together, it's the time to shine. ：）
