This means that there's obviously something about these songs, a quality that they have, that isn't subjective because we all picked up on it. I wonder, what do you think this quality is exactly? Is it just that it produces a particular feeling in us? Do you think that the writers of these songs must have been in that state of "the other side" at some point in their lives to be able to come up with this music, or do you think anybody could write music with that quality if they're a good composer?
Or, do you think there's a quality of the other side at all, or is this just good music we all happen to like?
This connection with the formless moment on the external world can be reflected in your inner state. This happens because the mind doesn't find the "silence" or "no sound" very interesting, it doesn't try an attach a memory or thought to it. To fully understand this you need to view the mind using Holonomic Brain Theory. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holonomic_model.When you listen to a bird, there is a moment of pure listening before the mind says something about it. If you can catch yourself whenever something new enters your awareness, you can be conscious of that first moment. There it is: the stillness, the aliveness, the awareness itself. Eckhart Tolle
Theta is the frequency range from 4 Hz to 7 Hz. Theta is seen normally in young children. It may be seen in drowsiness or arousal in older children and adults; it can also be seen in meditation. Excess theta for age represents abnormal activity. It can be seen as a focal disturbance in focal subcortical lesions; it can be seen in generalized distribution in diffuse disorder or metabolic encephalopathy or deep midline disorders or some instances of hydrocephalus. On the contrary this range has been associated with reports of relaxed, meditative, and creative states.
Enya and Engima are my favourites too. My favourite Enya song is probably this one:strali wrote:These ones are by Enya, this one is my favourite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiBwr4U5 ... ure=relmfu

It's very very very nice indeed. Does the English narrative has any connection with Sanskrit lyrics?Amritam wrote:This song does it for me. It's heaven.
I've been listening to a lot of beautiful music for about 30 years now and none has affected me like this one chant.Seeker1977 wrote:It's very very very nice indeed. Does the English narrative has any connection with Sanskrit lyrics?Amritam wrote:This song does it for me. It's heaven.
