The Synergy of Excellence: My Reflections on “Power vs. Force” and My Musical Journey

In “Power vs. Force,” Dr. David Hawkins explores the profound realms of consciousness that athletes often experience, leading to moments of supreme achievement. This exploration deeply resonates with my mission to uplift and transform lives through the power of live music in the Finger Lakes Region of NY.Dennis in tuxedo singing "A Thousand Years" at wedding ceremony

Transcending Boundaries

Just as athletes reach a state of consciousness where pain and exhaustion are transcended, allowing them to break through barriers and perform with effortless grace, I strive to reach a point in my music where it flows freely, touching the hearts of my listeners and uplifting their spirits. The joy, peace, and oneness with life that athletes experience at their peak moments are paralleled by the transcendent experiences I aim to create through music. The beauty and grace of sound evoke an inner silence and a profound connection to the universe, transporting listeners to a state of peace and harmony.

Beyond Personal Ambition

Both in athletics and music, the journey towards greatness is marked by humility and the Dennis Winge Ensemble at Ransom Steele playing material from "One Small Step" albumrealization that true achievement is a gift that belongs to all of humanity. My dedication to music is not driven by the pursuit of fame or wealth but by the sheer joy of excellence for its own sake. This mirrors the insights from “Power vs. Force”: the lust for personal gain corrupts, while dedication to a higher principle elevates and protects against egotism. By focusing on the higher purpose of my work, I aim to inspire and uplift, rather than simply entertain.

Dedication to a Higher Purpose

My mission to uplift people’s spirits through live music is my testament to the power of dedicating one’s skill and performance to something greater than oneself. Just as athletes discover aspects of the greater Self through their dedication and humility, I seek to expand the consciousness of humankind, making each performance a gift to the community I serve. This dedication to a higher purpose transforms every event into a meaningful and enriching experience for both the performer and the audience.

Nurturing Excellence

My commitment to quality, flexibility, and spontaneity mirrors the attributes of great athletes who transcend personal ambition through sacrifice and dedication to a higher principle. My commitment to function before form, recognizing the unique context of each event, and the embrace of spontaneity align with the ideals of overcoming the lower self for the greater good. This dedication to excellence ensures that every performance is a testament to the transformative power of music.

A Community United

I serve a diverse community, from couples celebrating their union to corporate event planners and private party hosts. This community, much like the audience of an athletic event, witnesses the manifestation of excellence that transcends personal achievement. The nurturing of excellence and the recognition of its value become a collective responsibility, uniting performers and audience in a shared experience of beauty and joy. Through music, we create a bond that transcends individual differences, bringing people together in a celebration of life and love.

The Universal Language of Excellence

The parallels between the high states of consciousness achieved through athletics, as explored in “Power vs. Force,” and the uplifting power of my live performances are profound.Dennis smiling at mic Both realms demonstrate that excellence, when pursued not as a personal accolade but as a dedication to something greater, becomes a transformative force. It uplifts spirits, expands consciousness, and unites us in the recognition of something greater within and among us. Through my relentless commitment to growth and excellence, I embody this universal language of transcendence, making every performance a testament to the power of music to elevate and inspire.

By aligning my musical journey with the principles of dedication, humility, and a higher purpose, I strive to create experiences that resonate deeply with my audience. This commitment to excellence ensures that every performance is not just an event, but a moment of transformation and connection, celebrating the profound beauty of life through the universal language of music.
