“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” — Plato
Music, when created from the heart and with truth and pure intention, is a spiritual expression of the most universal nature and the highest order. As Ravi Shankar put it: “The highest form in music is spirituality.” The impact on our thoughts, our emotions, our subconscious, and even our physical well-being can be quite profound. Music can be one of our most powerful gateways to align in the fullest possible way to our spiritual nature — our divine source — the unseen. It has the capacity to transport us to other dimensions, and, literally, to open the door to other realities.
Every human being is destined to become the music of his own life. Indeed, the soul’s purpose is to creatively express the sound of its note in order to evolve consciousness ultimately to serve humanity better. Yet to do this we must realize that deep within each of us are notes of power, light and vibrations, waiting to be expressed, seen and heard. The soul within each of us is seeking to creatively generate melody and harmony and music that has the power to uplift and transform.
The mysteries of sound, vibration and color are scattered throughout the Trans-Himalayan teachings. In ongoing workshops at Wisdom Teaching School we endeavor to mine those jewels, synthesize and explore the dynamics of the creative work of music from a more esoteric perspective.
