The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

Posted on December 4, 2010 at 10:15 AM

 

 

I have been applying principals from ‘The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success’ by Deepak Chopra to my life but also trying to apply it directly to my playing. It might be interesting to explore this further in this blog.

 

First Law:

 

The Law of Pure Potentiality

 

“Take time to be silent, to just BE. Meditate for 30 minutes twice a day. Silently witness the intelligence within every living thing. Practice non-judgment.”

 

Taking this time to meditate has a powerful effect on your whole being and your music as a result. As a musician you need to find ways to connect to the source of your creativity. The creativity that is inherent in nature and the whole cosmos is also available to us to channel through our music. When the artist harnesses his personal way to do this the musical experience is truly profound.

 

You can view this as connecting to your higher self, universal energy, God... the label we put on it doesn’t matter. I believe what does matter is making that connection and opening up to the idea that our musical creativity comes from places far deeper that our minds can comprehend. The source of creativity is in limitless supply and abundant in its very nature.

 

To be continued....
