Eddie’s life story has all the elements of a great novel. He’s a charismatic, loving person whose music career has taken him across the globe. He followed his heart and passionately performed music with some of the most talented people in the world. He also knows the deep despair of addiction and nearly lost his life. Some people in his shoes might have been forever “lost in the footlights” but not Eddie.
Eddie is not shy about giving credit where he believes credit is due. He speaks often of the divine inspiration he’s received in his life, in particular the past 25 years. I mention in the episode that Eddie lives a surrendered life. I chose that word because he chooses to be of service to others and he’s open to receiving guidance and inspiration from God. He does not feel the need to control the outcomes of his life. Some people view the concept of surrender as giving up. I don’t see it that way. It’s releasing the idea a single individual can control the outcomes of this vast universe.
In my experience, the more I have let go of control, the more gifts I receive from the world around me. It seems to me releasing oneself into the immense flow of energy in the world, you gain speed and momentum. As I hear Eddie talk about his life experiences, I see momentum and a global ripple effect reaching thousands of people who are often overlooked or discounted. I have come to understand those individuals on this planet who seem limited in their ability to contribute have the most to give all of us.
