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.
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.
