MEDITATION IS MUSIC The raga’s minor keys flood my mind, unlocking a balancing shiver, pranayama and Om, Its rhythmic tones in harmonic relation, echoing season and day, Draw out tension and sadness in tear-stained sitar notes. Music is me, I am music. Meditation makes music from my body’s rhythmic processes. So, let a semi quaver ease my quivering and bring harmony to my spirit - On moonlit evenings an Arabic ney-flute draws out laughter and joy, relieves stress, While a droning tambura subtly, sympathetically infiltrates my nervous system. And the Pastoral lifts my chin to tomorrow, my body re-charged, re-tuned. .......................................................... written by Sydney Peck for Dr.Ram Mehta's Contest - Music and Meditation

Sydney, I really liked the last part where you name the instruments and what each one does. "Music is me. I am music" that said it all. Congratulations.

Sydney- You guys at the top ranks of this contest wrote some awesome stuff here! I think I feel more and more relaxed each time I read thru yours! Meditation is just as powerful as you have stated here....very underused art! I must look up what an Arabic ney-flute is....curiosity sparked! Blessed Easter! Gwendolen
