Interview with Damien Rice

Hi all -

Wanted to share a piece of an interview with the singer/songwriter Damien Rice that ran in the Sunday entertainment section today. It resonated with me; I thought it may with some of you as well

Q: You mentioned that you had to take some time off to clean your mind. What did that involve?

A: Initially, it involved sitting with uncomfortable questions and watching thoughts that were judgemental or destuctive. Much like learning how to brush my teeth, I've been learning how to remove unhelpful notions that get stuck and cause decay. As a kid, I accepted a lot of what I was told. When I looked at what was going on in my head, I noticed that none of the destructive stuff was mine. It was all borrowed beliefs. So I've been cleaning those out. I've still got a lot of knots to untie. It's become a daily thing, much like eating, sleeping and showering.

Sounds like an ACoA experience. Here's to all of us as we untie our knots!

This album of his... Sigh. A big part of it could be heard as one long amends.

First Listen: Damien Rice, 'My Favourite Faded Fantasy' : NPR
