Good Morning Gang! It’s 5:24 am here in New York. I’ve been up since 3am….I turned in early last night. 2 cups of coffee later…and the sky is still black.
I’d like to share something very special to me with you today. I will tell you about one of my greatest loves in my life.
This is how I find my peace. Without this, my music would have no ground. It’s the secret of my success. It’s one of the most important things in my life.
Like most people (maybe you), I experience ups and downs, moments of confusion. The noisy mind does this.
Often I want “more” – more love, money, control, attention, certainty in life – but with that comes stress. It’s all just mental noise. It’s “grabbing” instead of “having”.
So after thinking, stressing, losing myself in trying to figure it all out, trying to squeeze this poor little brain (inside the bobbing bald head) for “the answer” which never comes…I have to give up, because there is no answer.
But wait…something beautiful happens when I give up and sit still.
When I sit silently 30 minutes once (or twice) a day…
Answers come on their own, magically.
I feel my own “noise” for 20 minutes and then a “merging” with it all happens.
Past, present and future turn into one beautiful, cohesive “glow”.
I become “nothing” but it’s the most beautiful “nothing” there is.
I’m not “happy”, I just “am”.
Like a pond, the ripples on the water eventually slow down until the water looks like glass.
It’s amazing and beautiful.
