I love this music for meditation.
They used to play it at the study group of A Course in Miracles I attended when we lived in Bel Air, Maryland. On Thursday nights, people would file in frazzled from their busy lives. We’d begin with a short meditation, maybe ten minutes or so, and this music would play. I don’t know what happened for everyone else in that room, but I went places. I don’t know if it was the music, the dimly lit room, or the collective energy of the people in a small space with the mindset of,
Where would You have me go?
What would You have me do?
What would You have me say and to whom?
Anyway, I loved it. The air in the room was different after meditation and we were able to have some amazing exchanges. This music brings me back to that calm transcendent state very quickly.
Riley and Seth and I listened to it the other night. It had been a doozy of a homework session. After two hours of Riley crying and screaming and no homework really done, I lost my temper and yelled at her. With tears streaming down her face, Riley asked if we could do a meditation.
We turned on the Christmas tree and turned off the rest of the lights.
Flat on my back on the floor, one child curled under each arm, the music played. The Christmas lights twinkled.
It didn’t solve all our troubles,
but it helped.
