Music is one of
those wondrous things that have the uncanny power to connect us to who
we really are. Similar to the art, poetry, literature, theater and other
creative human activities, music is a "ready made" magic potion -- the
one who takes it gets to be magically transformed into an awake and alive
being. To achieve the same level of clarity without consuming music and
art, one would need to devote lots of time to an intense practice and to
still one's mind for a truly long time.
In a way, then, music
is a "free ride" for those of us who are willing to stop and listen.
Once we stop and
truly listen, we all of a sudden forget all about ourselves, about our
worldly troubles, worries and toils. The self-concern is abruptly gone,
but the self-awareness is that much more heightened. We realize that the
music which brought us to this wondrous state is the messenger of something
far greater than we can imagine.
The mystery of music
lives forever. Here are some of the areas of musical discipline that will
survive the history and will keep us awake in realization of who we really
are for ever and ever. To delve deeper into some of these areas, click
