Life itself is music – Hafiz

Music. Music

I have ruminated on the quote by Hafiz, which took me on an interesting journey to discover the background behind his quote. I learnt from this article “Music of the spheres” that his quote was inspired by an Eastern legend about how “the soul has entered the body of clay or matter” in order “to experience the music of life, and to make this music clear to itself”.
 .
On a similar note, I learnt from this article that “We can be touched deeply, at the very core of our soul, and be instantly connected to the Divine through the power of sound. Every single atom in our Universe is in vibration and emits a frequency. Sound is energy vibration that falls within the range of frequency we are able to hear… Rhythm can be used to alter rigid energy patterns in the aura and physical body. Each of our chakras resonates with a specific tone on the musical scale and can be balanced and cleared accordingly.”
Yes, I can relate to this as I am often touched deeply at the core of my soul and be connected to the Divine in us through the power of music that is able to balance and clear my chakras. I feel peaceful and joyful when listening to such music, and music is one of my main avenues of healing and restoration that I turn to, besides Nature and meditation, for example, whenever I feel stressed or disoriented.
.
I also visited the website of “Song of the New Earth” that is mentioned in the picture of the quote in your email, and I learnt from its webpage on “how sound vibration speaks to our souls and bodies by opening a door that bridges our cognitive thinking; catapulting us towards insights into the miraculous”. Yes, there is something about music in all its beauty and mystery that makes life much more colourful and alive, in its power to move us, inspire us, calm us, soothe us, heal us, soothe us, and feel us in all our moods and emotions in a deep and profound way. Like the poem “Awake” says, “you are the music, you are the song, you are the melody, you are a workmanship created in Love”.

John Mayer – Heart Of Life (Live in LA) [High Def!]

This is beautiful.

Video information

From the live album and concert film “Where the light is”. Live in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre on December 8 2007. Enjoy 🙂

This is a beautiful and meaningful song that offers hope and comfort in knowing/remembering that love always prevails in spite of pains and sufferings in life. I especially like the refrain that goes “Love turns the whole thing around; No, it won’t all go the way it should, but I know the heart of life is good…. I know it’s good” which I find encouraging.

Céline Dion – Loved Me Back to Life

[Celine Dion – Verse #1]
I was walking dead stuck inside my head
You couldn’t get out
Turn the lights down
Voices inside were so loud

Need a jump start, catatonia
I couldn’t feel, I wish that I could dissapear
The voices inside were so real.

But you stood by my side.
Night after night, night after night.
You loved me back to life, life
From the coma, the wait is over
You loved me back to life, life
From the coma, we’re lovers again tonight.
Back to life, back to life, back to life, back to life, yeah

Warm me up one touch I’m on fire
Love me back to life, back to life, but I died.
The voices inside were so quiet.

But you stood my side
Night after night, light up the night
You loved me back to life, life
From the coma the wait is over.
You loved me back to life, life
From the coma, we’re lovers again tonight.

Strong hands, thick skin, and an open heart
You saw through the pain, saw through the mask
You never gave up on me, yeah

[Outro]
You loved me back to life, life
From the coma, the wait is over.
You loved me back to life, life
From the coma, we’re lovers again tonight
Back to life, back to life, back to life, back to life
Back to life. backt to life, back to life, back to life
Yeah….

 

The secret life of trees

Here’s sharing this soundtrack music for “The secret life of trees” that was recommended in my Youtube newsfeed – I found it relaxing and pleasant to listen to. The video description says “Each five minute composition transitions smoothly to the next making it perfect for yoga flow practice.”

I was curious about the title of the video, and googled about it, and learnt it is referring to the book of the same title. According to this book review, trees have a memory and a kind of chemical intelligence. I suppose it can be considered that trees have some sort of consciousness, that enables them to adapt to changing environmental factors in order to survive and thrive throughout the generations.

“Unlike animals, which eat, breath, sense and even think, trees seem to do only one thing: they grow. Their secret, Tudge reveals, is that they are more like animals than they appear. Hormones provide a kind of chemical intelligence. Trees have a memory. They can analyse problems and find solutions. A tree shaken by a gale puts on a spurt of growth and becomes slightly fatter and more wind-proof. It reacts to an invasion of caterpillars by producing smaller, less caterpillar-friendly leaves.”

(From a review of “The secret life of trees” by Colin Tudge)

Cherish – Kool and the gang

Let’s take a walk together near the ocean shore
Hand in hand you and I
Let’s cherish every moment we have been given
The time is passing by
I often pray before I lay down by your side
If you receive your calling before I awake
Could I make it through the night

Cherish the love we have
We should cherish the life we live
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love
Cherish the love we have
For as long as we both shall live
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love

The world is always changing
Nothing stays the same
But love will stand the test of time
The next life that we live in
Remains to be seen
Will you be by my side
I often pray before I lay down by your side
If you receive your calling before I awake
Could I make it through the night

Cherish the love we have
We should cherish the life we live
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love
Cherish the love we have
For as long as we both shall live
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love

Cherish the love
Cherish the life

Cherish the love we have
We should cherish the life we live
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love
Cherish the love we have
For as long as we both shall live
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love

Cherish the love we have
We should cherish the life we live
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love
Cherish the love we have
For as long as we both shall live
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love
