A river of consciousness-Win

Seated in this great vault of a cathedral Feeling as if people around me were meditating. There was stillness and peacefulness. The artist *Chinmoy began playing The unusual triple bamboo gourd flute. At first nothing much seemed to be happening Then my mind quieted and my heart opened a little. Began to feel something peaceful higher world His melodies simple, I knew nothing about virtuosity But somehow evoked a meditative inner quality. Ah, the silence is the nest and music is the bird All peace, all joy and all confidence inside the nest And from there the music-bird comes out And flies over this, my meditative world The seven higher worlds and seven lower worlds Each world has music of its own and a note of its own. My inner climbs up high, higher and highest And then enters into something beyond Helping me, molding me into transcendental image When I hear this soulful music An inner thrill from soles of my feet to crown of head A river flowing through me. a river of consciousness And this consciousness is all the time illumined.

    Wow! I wish I could have enjoyed that music with you. Have you ever read Yogananda? I am reading his book, "The Divine Romance" now, he spoke also of the seven heavens and seven lower worlds, but he only mentioned it in passing. hmmm... it makes me wonder. Hugs, Catie :)
