Music: the Tangible Proof of the Natural Excellence within All of Us

newletter head 4

According to the Human measuring spree, we are about to end a cycle of life, a 365 day period. Habit has it that we guide ourselves into the mood of recalling what we did and what we didn’t do during that time, to set new goals, new expectations, new renewed and re-renewed vows that we might have not achieved…and so we try again and again to reach them…

 

“This year I will make it!!!” …we hear ourselves say with the hope that finally I will get that job of my dreams or finally be thin enough to wear those jeans, or that finally I will meet that special soul that will complete me, or…

 

And hope makes us smile in our quest to swim against that strong current…

 

What if it didn’t have to be this way?

 

What if you were already There, where you want to be, however it is your quest to reach There that doesn’t allow you to recognize i just how excellent you already are?

 

As I was driving today up the Mont Liban mountain with the intention to admire Mother Nature from the Sanctuary of Mar Charbel, I had yet another spiritual orgasm invade me while listening to music in the absolute Now.

 

Listening to music. This, we all do, however are we aware of the proof that this is to make us aware of just how perfect we already are?

 

Yanni composed his music while I was still a teenager.  I was listening to it for the millionth time today, as my thankful heart drove through the sublime Nature of my beloved Lebanon. Nostalgia was playing when my soul started feeling what Yanni felt as he was writing it so many years ago. Today. Now…

 

I recall now…

 

…my body starts feeling each note and vibrating with such an intensity that sends me into floating mode. Yes, I am driving in a very wide road and I am aware that God is guiding me, so no, I don’t worry about anything…as usual.

 

…Yanni’s crescendo now is moving my 50 trillion cells into a symphony of existence…it almost hurts… And when the grand finale arrives, a deep sigh is stolen by the Universe from the Depth of my Being as tears roll down my cheeks…in absolute awe and gratitude…Alhamdulilah

 

The seconds after this explosion of Life are extremely intense. This phenomenon has embraced me many times before, and actually pushed me into writing my first book “Spiritual Orgasms, vivid encounters in the Now.

 

However, this time I could clearly recognize this as a material proof to anyone who needs one of just how perfect we already are. The way in which my physical body was reacting was speaking volumes.

 

Excellence is our core. We just need to allow it, by living it passionately!

Yanni was not born a musician. However his Connection to Source since childhood -and here I take advantage to thank his parents as he does in his book “Yanni in Words”, a must read! – took him to apply passion to all he did…and in so doing, clearly feeling and declaring what his natural talents and gifts were.

 

And so, living in the flow of passion he would go to the cinema at age 9 with a notebook to write down the sounds of the music in the film, inventing his own notes!!!

 

He was just a boy. A boy that did not chase excellence. He was just himself. He was being Excellence itself.

 

And so when he wrote Nostalgia in the sentiment that names it, I, in my car in Lebanon, listening to his Acropolis concert by means of high technology, I manage to feel what he felt as he played it…making my soul move my body into tears in an explosion of Oneness, Excellence, Love…

 

My dear sweet friend, this year I would like to challenge you to change your perspective about excellence. May you please feel, not think, and just Know you don’t have to chase it by having to do this, “musting” to do that, “shoulding” to reach that.

 

Lay back. Do nothing. Just listen within. Go back to that child that you are- the dreamer that needed no alarm clock to get up in the morning and go out and play or wake your parents up to finally stop sleeping and start living…Remember?

 

Just feel…feel the Perfection within…

 

Dare to recognize that it is not striving  to reach excellence what will get you to that There of yours…but living each breath, being that excellence in full power, with such an effortless effort that even if you dedicated your passion 20 working hours per day, you will not be tired nor stressed…because my friend, you are that dream of yours already

 

And the best part of this is that while recognizing this, you live in a constant state of gratitude…which provokes health, wealth and wellbeing.

 

You are living the happiness that you are, recognizing and declaring your own unique talents and gifts, knowing that everything is perfect just the way it is and that everyone is good.

 

Now time means nothing, you live in the Now in a very contagious state…sprinkling that joy by simply shining it- no need to preach not teach…enticing others to choose the same…

 

Ahhhhhh….

 

Now we are living in world peace.

 

Next time you are listening to music, may you bless your every breath and thank God for your every body cell, living in gratitude not just from next year, but from now…feeling the grand miracle and the excellence that you and I and everyone already is.

Just as Nature declares its perfection in all its beauty and serenity, you, too, feel the love with which Nature created your miraculous body in full perfection...and just Be...

Just as Nature declares its perfection in all its beauty and serenity, you, too, feel the love with which Nature created your miraculous body in full perfection…and just Be…

 

Let the music be…

 

And if you must measure, greet human-made-year 2016 in the Knowingness that we all are already perfect…

 

…allow the Excellence within you recognize the Excellence within everyone else…and celebrate…at every breath.

 

Just smile, and recognize…
