I would like to elaborate a bit more on the approach of using music to connect with the Bliss Resonance, the subtle “feel good” sensations that move delicately in the spine and—through resonance—the rest of the body.
Have you noticed how skilled musicians, when they “lose” themselves in their playing, move so delicately and passionately with their instruments and with the music? For example, when observing a piano player “surrendered” in his/her playing, they will sway in rhythm and resonance with the music, as though in a swoon, deeply absorbed in the enjoyment of their “play.”
The approach that I would suggest to you while listening to music that touches you deeply is this: observe how your body naturally and intuitively wants to move in rhythm and harmony with the music.
Now, as you continue to feel into the music, take special notice of the very subtle sensations that are activating you to move in rhythm and resonance with the music.
This is an important point. As you go deeper in feeling with the music, you want to “latch” onto and “follow” the vibration/sensation that is creating the desire to move/sway/dance.
Tune into the finest nuance of this vibration! It creates the sensation that puts the body and mind into swoon! When you can apprehend the very delicate nature of this vibration, you will be able to follow the “current” deep into the spine!
Now, when you are able to connect with this subtle current while listening to music, you can also apply this approach when sitting in silence during your regular meditation periods…or while standing in line at the market, or while driving, etc. Get the point?
