MUSIC IS A MORAL LAW,
IT GIVES SOUL TO THE UNIVERSE
WINGS TO THE MIND.
FLIGHT TO THE IMAGINATION
A CHARM TO SADNESS
GAIETY AND LIFE TO EVERYTHING.
IT IS THE ESSENCE
OF ORDER AND LENDS TO ALL
THAT IS GOOD,JUST, AND BEAUTIFUL.
PLATO

Something has been ' brewing'....I can feel it, almost hear it but not quite . Today I realised that it is a Composition based on Revelations'!(Also, Eckhart Tolle's book ' A New Earth' has been a great inspiration to me.)

 It's easy to dismiss the ancient Biblical Writings....I mostly do myself!! But  some years ago I read Edgar Cayce's commentaries on ' Revelations'. Somehow ,what I  read completely matches our modern day dilemma and proposed a possible solution for a World dominated by Violence, Prejudice and Cruelty ...in a word, Unconsciousness .

 A Solution? Well!! It ain't ' out there'....it's ' in here' .!!!

 

Cayce describes a kind of ' Turbulence',which leaves one in no doubt that the expected ' Fire and Brimstone, Trials and Tribulations, Earthquakes etc' are within the Human Psyche first and( of course) then manifested in the physical world ...

For example ,'The Seven Churches referred  to, are explained by Cayce as, the Seven Chakras in our Physical/Etheric Bodies and the ' 24 Elders before the Throne are the 24 Cranial Nerves of the head related to the 5 senses' ! and so on. Read for yourself perhaps?

There does not appear to be an external event in our physical world that is not initiated by our Collective and Personal Consciousness or lack thereof .

The solution? for each one of us to take Personal Responsibility ( which is undoubtedly uncomfortable at times, since it means listening to a wiser part of oneself when the Ego is shouting it's head off!! ). I do not speak of religion here....but of Inner Authority, which seems mostly to be ' educated' out of us and therefore our children at a very early age!!

What's this got to do with Music?

According to Steiner and Schopenhauer ( Wagner's favourite read! ) as well as  other emminent Philosophers, Music has no model in the physical world. We access it in sleep by visiting the ' World of Devachan'..a world of Tone and Colours.....don't ask me what it is like, since I am always asleep...Smile!!! but I often wake in the night or in the early morning with an idea that wasn''t there when I went to bed.

 I daresay other Composers could back that up! Which brings me back nicely to the question ,' What is the real function of Music in our lives?

 For me anyway, it means that there is a powerful potential to Heal, Create Inner Connection between Heart and Soul, Inspire, Uplift and Transform Lives.

. Recently I advised my 12 year old Grandchild to ' follow her Heart'....She replied, ' The problem is I don't know which is my Heart and which is my Mind'....is this familiar?? Look ..or rather don't ,at the World News!!!

 If you come to a Concert in which my Music is being played and you are not ' opened' in some way by what you have participated in ....presuming of course that you did that!!! Then, I feel I have failed!!  

 My new work? Haven't a clue but I know the Title is the 'New Earth ' and that it is Choral/Orchestral. Further than that....we shall see ,or rather ' Hear' ..Have a lovely evening all...xx
