“To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born a reasonable being. We make ourselves into one or the other.”
Carlos Castaneda

Tales of Power

Coming from inside, taking me by the hand and leading me back inside

I came across this video of a Shakuhachi performance after sending a link to another recording to a friend. There is something about this instrument like no other … maybe because of its meditational heritage?

It seems that no matter what is played on it, regardless of intensity (it has an amazing range) … if it is played with presence (I have witnessed one live performance by a Shakuhachi master that was not present and therefore didn’t touch me) it seems as if it comes from somewhere deep inside me, reaches out into my consciousness and invites it back inside. This video is also beautifully shot in a beautiful stage setting.

The video includes three pieces … the first and last are Shakuhachi. The first one sent … warm chills down my spine 🙂 Stop what you are doing, click play, close your eyes and … enjoy 🙂
