Daily meditation and awareness of consciousness creates gaps between thoughts. The larger these gaps become, the more capable we become of experiencing not only beauty, but love, positive energy, and inspiration.
What is beauty but total surrender to the present moment? Fully present, even a leafless tree in January becomes an object of great beauty. In this awakened state, all of life becomes art. Anything created from this state of being contains within it a beauty that is instantly recognizable to others who are perceiving with presence.
That which is created with the mind, however, may only occupy other minds or, at best, distract the mind from its worried thoughts by drawing one into an imagined reality. The mind creates that which is shallow and temporary while the heart’s creations are timeless.
The fundamental challenge of our time is to create gaps between thought. As Leonard Cohen once said, “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Gaps of thought are the crack through which all joy, bliss, and beauty may enter and connect directly with your spirit.
Over these past few months, I have been writing and recording music from this state of presence and am now releasing an album called Life Light. I find it beautiful and I hope you will too. 10 new tracks will be available everywhere in the coming days.
