MEDITATION — Music Themes

Spirit or meditative music and chants and dance (controlled specific movement through space) simultaneously expands and/or guides consiousness and also centers and anchors intent and attention. It is intent that determines the direction and therefore the purpose and results of meditation in all of the various forms.

SONG OF THE STARS –—  Dead Can Dance
10min. 13sec.

We are the stars which sing
We sing with our light;
We are the birds of fire,
We fly over the sky.
Our light is a voice;
We make a road for the
Spirit to pass over.
We are like the wind,
Wrapped, wind light,
Make a way
For the spirits to pass over,
For the spirits to move on.
Outo, ba ou Mwen son,
And Outo, ba ou Mwen son,
And Tanbouye,
Or ba ou Mwen son,
Soley levers. Outo,
Give me your sound,
Outo, give me your sound,
Drummer, give me your sound,
The sun rises.

“Music is a
Half forgotten memory
Of a primitive state
It is a
Bridge of holiness
Between this world
And the
World of All Beauty.”
Hildegard von Bingen

All that is and ever will be are only emanations of Creator. It is not necessary to go anywhere to become aware of Creator for this Power is everywhere and everywhere is holy. There are physical places where it is easier to pay attention and focus intent, but all of this Earth is holy, and should be treated as such.

Is there any SPACE that is truly empty? Are vacuums empty SPACE? Can empty SPACE resonate? Are there waves whose period of which, we as humans, can never become aware nor measure? Are the SPACES between people illusion, or is it connection that is the illusion, and between people there is only Space??
