“Fright is something one can never get over. When a warrior is caught in such a tight spot he would simply turn his back to the ally without thinking twice. A warrior cannot indulge thus he cannot die of fright. A warrior allows the ally to come only when he is good and ready. When he is strong enough to grapple with the ally he opens up his gap and lurches out, grabs the ally, keeps him pinned down and maintains his stare on him for exactly the time he has to, then he moves his eyes away and releases the ally and lets him go. A warrior, my little friend, is the master at all times.”
Carlos Castaneda

A Separate Reality

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 🙂
