Music of "the other side"?

Postby Seeker1977 » Sat Jan 22, 2011 3:16 pm

Hi,

I read at many places that "the other side" [our spiritual home / the spiritual world / the non-dualistic world / the afterlife / the One(ness) / our true self / the angels etc.] have a kind of beautiful music. I also read that many people told about this music and these beautiful tunes when they were asked about their "life between their lives" in deep hypnosis or people whose heart stopped for a few minutes before doctors could revive. Also, many say that some (or most) of the people can recognize if a song (or a novel, a painting, a sculpture or other man-made thing) "has something in it from the other side" as they are drawn to listen (or watch) that music (or other work of art) again and again with owe (in the positive meaning of the word), that it especially pleasant to their hears and mind and that sometime they gives them the creeps (in the positive meaning again).

So, I recently noticed that a very small minority of the songs (let's say one in every 2-300) has the above described effect on me. Did some of you notice the same? I included a list of some of those songs in which I can feel this "harmony of the other side" (or however to say). Do you feel something "special" while listening these songs too? (If you have the time it worths to listen them all, from their beginning to their end, as many of them have especially nice parts in them.) So the list:

I am curious about your opinion and experience.

Also, a few more, although in the case of these the feeling of "overwhelming beauty" is not that very strong, but I still clearly feel it:

I am glad that you liked them. You are lucky that you can play the piano. I wish I could too :-) (And the erhu as well)

Wow, this is incredible! :) I came to the forum today with the intention of starting a thread about music that draws us into the state of presence, and then the first topic I see in the active topics list is this one, with such a wonderful list of songs. A lot of the songs on your list are songs I've never heard, and some of them are quite amazing. Thanks for that.

For me, music is so very special, I cannot imagine my life without it.

I'll compile a playlist and post it here as soon as I'm done.

I invite everyone to share their special songs.

I am not usually 'moved' by music, but this video about our true nature never fails to hit home. I hope it has the same effect on you.

Yes, I feel it too! Wonderful song indeed!

Here are a few more songs that I feel very emotional/elevated/spiritual or whatever the right word for that. This time I tried to select a few "faster" and more "vivid" songs. Some of them has a kind of "power" that very few other songs have.

Here' my playlist. What a good idea to share our favorite music. I'll add to it from time to time. I suggest rather than adding additional music through more posts, just edit your existing post noting the new additions.
