In the EDM world, the energetic, vibing music is not the only thing that sets its followers apart from the rest. The PLUR universe is turning into a mass following that seems to have started a beautiful phenomenon. Ravers are stereotyped as drugged-up, kandi-covered lunatics, and to some extent, I am sad to say, there is truth in that. There are people out there who take this scene to the extreme and give ravers in general a bad rep. Stereotypical behavior emanates from people that don’t know or genuinely care about anything deeper than the party aspect of a rave. What should be made aware is that there still remain many who stay true to the ways of PLUR and are loyal to the belief system affiliated with rave culture; this side of ravers is valued so much higher than anything party wise. PLUR stands for peace, love, unity, and respect, and is a symbol collaborated with the EDM culture to symbolize what countless people in the rave community want to have faith in and live by.
Woodstock started it all: It was the beginning of acceptance for ‘The Person’ on a deeper level, brought together by music. No matter the background, ethnicity, color, or gender; everyone gathered at this festival for one reason: the love of the music. This primal burst of light was a catalyst for some ideas we have shaped with EDM and PLUR. We celebrate our existence by song and dance. Festivals and shows bring people together to share this celebration through experience, connection, friendship, togetherness, freedom, and love. Love for each other, love for the music, all in all, love for life. Being part of PLUR practices can help express feelings and share moments with others more easily. On an individual level Peace, Love, Unity and Respect focus on a person’s feelings toward the world, people around them, and how they relate to them. It plays a big role in how people act towards each other. PLUR promotes a positive atmosphere to enhance the experiences of everyone. It has the ability to be used societally and individually, and both realms affect all people in a beneficial way.
The true raver sees the marvel of PLUR, while others are blind to it. Understanding that there is a Choice in how to Be creates the possibility for change. When this is realized PLUR can be in full effect amongst us all. The PLUR nation is a tight knit global community and striving to spread a peaceful, harmonious way of living. Only through Understanding of the Choice and the Music will we be able to come together as one. Feeling loved, supported, understood, and welcome is part of what we all want and can also give. The ultimate happiness lies not just in ourselves, but what we can give to others and what they can give back to us. Our goal is simply to spread awareness that the PLUR life is a simple, beautiful way to live and thrive. Taking this manner of being and applying it not only to raves, but all aspects of life is like seeing the whole sky light up. This is Woodstock on a higher level than anyone could have dreamed.
This is the evolution of revolution.
