It’s been almost six years since the lead singer of American rock band Linkin Park died, allegedly at his own hand by hanging. Chester Bennington was 41 and the father of six children when he died.
“I tried so hard and got so far…But in the end it doesn’t even matter.”
Linkin Park’s song In the End is one that I would listen to on repeat. Belting it out kept me spry and eyes on the road during long drives I did for work. I would sing SO loud my throat would hurt. It’s just one of those songs that makes you want to YELL LIKE HELL.
In the End was written by the band’s rapper and songwriter Mike Shinoda. He locked himself away in a windowless rehearsal space in a neighbourhood trodden at the time with prostitutes and drug dealers.
Although Mike wrote the song, admittedly it was Chester’s soaring voice that tapped into the emotional confusion of their youthful audience. The song connected music fans across the board. I believe there’s far more to the life and death of Chester Bennington buried between layers of lies and deceit. It’s been made public that Chester was the bastard son of John Podesta. The resemblance is undeniable.
A basic internet search on John Podesta will tell you he’s an American political consultant that served for Clinton and Obama administrations. He was most recognized as Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager.
In the end, does it really matter?
The answer is YES it matters. In the end, it all matters. What’s less obvious and largely overlooked by most of humanity is that by not fully believing it matters you are ignoring one the 12 Laws of Karma:
The Law of Significance and Inspiration.
ALL your contributions affect the world around you, no matter how big or small they may seem to you. Walking down the street you stop to pet a dog. May seem insignificant but that’s a contribution. In the end, it all matters.
Every action, every thought of every second of your existence is a collection of things that all matter in the end. Use your gifts. Use your voice. Express your thoughts. Be your authentic self and shine. It’s part of your mission in this world. It’s a Karmic Law. In the end, it all matters.
