Jason Milan: What is Music for Grasshoppers? MFG is the state of mind when it is in tune and working harmoniously, like a grasshopper in nature. It is the moment of tapping in to the universal consciousness. It is letting go of rational thought to stream creativity without internal or external prejudice. It is trusting the voice within. It is the unification of duality. It is intent. It is belief. It is nothing shy of a revolution.
