Yesterday, we spotlighted the Twitter reaction to news of the Kardashian/Kanye love match.
Rap mogul Russell Simmons, whose Twitter moniker is “Uncle RUSH,” tweeted a link tonight to his own words of wisdom and advice for the new couple:
No scripture, no prophet, no religious or spiritual practice will ever say that money will make you happy (calm the noise). It took me thirty years of being in the public spotlight to get to where I am today in my understanding of this. It takes constant meditation to remove this ever present noise. There is no happiness until the mind is still. The cause of all sickness and sadness is the fluctuation of the mind.
One of the quick fixes (aside from drugs) is to find someone who is like minded and who has the same daily struggles. You are hoping that the next relationship is the one that makes you calm and then something inside of you tells you that there’s something missing. So, we are constantly looking for that person. The problem with society is that they say, ‘they have money, so they should be ok.’ That is a misconception. Money or fame won’t calm the noise. How did Britney Spears react? How did Amy Winehouse react? How did Whitney Houston react? The only goal in life is to calm the noise. Every creative moment and every happy moment comes when the noise is calm.
I know Kim and Kanye. They are both hopeful people, but cautious. Everything they do is under the microscope. Every public move they make is dissected. At GlobalGrind, we write about celebrities, usually about their contributions to society, their inspiring words…We are not interested in pulling them down. To all of these sites out here, it seems they think it is their job to tear down people who we see as successful and happy. Are you happy to see them suffer or will you support their own journey towards happiness?
