As some of you already may know I play keyboards and compose music myself.
I never felt easy with the statement that "I compose music".
The force called inspiration is indeed a strange one.
Whatever I play/compose is somehow given from above. I just need to make sure I practise enough to create ample room for a composition to land. When one is seriously in the process of composing or playing music (even listening by hart to it does the trick already) a connection is made with a different type of consciousness, the musical planes or whatever.
I am convinced that this travel of consciousness actually takes place producing a very refreshing bath in that other dimension. It probably has to do with the frequency lifting of ones aura when seriously engaged in music.
To me, music can be seen as the first spiritual/astral trial of a very high end constructive idea in the process of being created as reality (not necessarily music) on this planet. (Read twice please, hehehe).
