Everything in our Universe is constantly moving and changing. Old Stars/planets are dying and new ones are being born this very moment as you read these words. Galaxies, solar systems and stars are all a part of this 'Great Movement', a journey into the Unknown.
The human being, likewise, begins the journey as a single cell and travels through different stages of evolution to become a person who can think, analyze, imagine, create and perform wondrous acts to express 'life' in magnificent ways. This living organism, like the Universe, is constantly changing each moment. You are no more the same person as when you read the first line of this text. A million things have changed in you. Your body cells have already traveled long distances to transport different chemical properties to different organs throughout. Your inner diagram is quite different now.
Mind and body work together as a team. They reciprocate and exchange information (energy). What happens to one is automatically and instantly transferred to the other. When this exchange takes place in a harmonious rhythm o fNature, a person feels healthy, happy and inspired. These experiences surface from the positive and constructive field of consciousness. On the other hand, when the mind-body connection is out of synchronicity, all experiences surface from negative and destructive field of consciousness as irritations, anger, fears, anxieties and sickness.
Sound is that incredible tool that influences the mind and body in very distinct but subtle ways. The sound forms recorded in this album have been derived from the Scared Music of ancient India. They have been a vital source to heal and balance the mind-body connection in gentle and positive ways for centuries. The mind and body, at the end of the night, are in a rested, receptive, open and impressionable state. The music correlates with that state and enhances peace, clarity, healing and freedom from sickness.
