“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy. Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life. Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.”
– Ludwig van Beethoven
Music is a true divine miracle, an angel, emissary and ambassador of the Beyond.
Music can be immediate and profound meditation. Music announces the inner worlds, opens a portal to the spiritual realm and paves a direct pathway to our Source.
To love music is to be awoken to our innate spirituality.
Music can be thought about, analysed and critiqued, but never understood with our minds. Music can only be felt and claimed by our hearts: therefore spiritual music can be of tremendous help to extricate us from our minds’ web of thoughts, distractions and attachments.
Spiritual music does not dally with doubt or deal with the unreal. It bypasses the tollgates of our minds’ scepticism and analysis, flying directly into our open hearts’ ever-widening freedom-sky.
Meditation is the process of entering, exploring and bringing to the fore our spiritual heart. The customary way to enter meditation is by consciously taming and quieting the mind – not an easy task at the best of times. Fortunately there are other ways to access our spiritual heart that do not demand this rare degree of self-mastery.
If you are having a difficult time finding your spiritual heart in meditation, listen awhile to your favourite spiritual music. Spiritual music, like a reliable sniffer dog, will immediately locate your heart.
Meditation is self-discovery. By revealing and bathing us in our own higher and deeper nature, spiritual music offers a thrilling meditation-mirror in which we see, feel and realise our better selves as pure music.
