I’m still exploring all the benefits of switching from hostility to harmony. It really is a game-changer.
Here’s another: I’m absolutely falling in love with and responding to music now.
The whole attitude of my body is not restricted by bands of muscular tension/holding patterns any longer but is one of openness and willingness to explore the new. I feel the music in my body now.
Let me play a copy of Pachelbel’s Canon for you as an instance of music that uplifts me. I practically go off into bliss listening to it.
Editor’s note: I was unable to embed the audio track here. Head to the original article to hear the track.
This rapture over music is new to me. My body was tensed up with vigilance and caution before. Now music is a pathway to bliss.
Here’s another. My field of experience, earlier, was not an open highway to bliss. I could ride a wisp of it up but I couldn’t stay long. Now there’s no parking meter. It lasts as long as I pay attention to it. And my attention does wander, of necessity of course.
I can now explore it. I find that bliss soothes and reassures. It has a calming effect on me. In it I feel certain that everything is OK. The message arises in me that life at higher levels of existence really is OK. All this suffering will go.
And of course I know from experience that that is a true statement. At higher levels of reality everything IS OK and we’re OK in it.
Bliss transforms the view from my balcony into a vista of the Riviera, a jaunt to a neighborhood restaurant into a walk down the Champs-Éysée. Everything goes better with bliss.
And now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to meditate in it and on it.
