Even Educated Fleas Do It...

I finally watched the RHCP’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and while it was awesome to see the Chili Peppers play (along with Slash, et al.) my favorite part was Flea’s acceptance speech (notwithstanding my always & forever crush on Anthony Keidis). Flea (along with my man AK) is a fan of yoga, and when Flea spoke to the power of his musical gift he seemed enlightened: “The burning intense desire that is inside of me to play music, that has not diminished in the slightest, that has only deepened as time has gone on; cause when we’re hittin it, when we are really inside the groove, when we’re on, I’m lost man, and in that moment I am truly free of everything and I am truly one with everything.”                                

It was inspiring to hear that Flea feels truly connected to all beings when he’s pursuing his life’s purpose. And in his speech he prefaces the aforementioned quote by saying that his life’s mission is to uplift those around him. I think he’s truly successful. Namaste.
