Fall in Love with the Sound…
I Love Music! My daughter said “listen to this mom, I can’t stop listening to it. “
The song is by Odeza and it’s the Intro of the album that goes right into the next next song called A Moment a part.
Later in the day I put my headphones on and listened with all my attention and BOOM… I thought YES! I frickin Love the message.
Here is the story in the intro song:
Have you heard the story of the Russian Cosmonaut?
So the cosmonaut – he’s the first man ever to go into space.
The Russians beat the Americans. He goes up in this big spaceship,
but the inhabitable part of it is very small. See, the Cosmonaut is in there.
And he’s got this portal window, and he’s looking out of it, and he sees the
curvature of the earth. For the first time. The first man to ever look at the
planet he’s from. And he’s lost in that moment. And all of a sudden, this
strange ticking… is coming out of the dashboard.
He rips out the control panel, takes out his tools, trying to find this sound –
trying to stop this sound. But he can’t find it. He can’t stop it. It keeps going.
A few hours into this, it begins to feel like torture. A few days go by with this
sound and he knows that this. Small. Sound. will break him. He’ll lose his mind.
But what’s he going to do? He’s up in space. Alone. In a space closet.
He’s got 25 days left to go, with this sound.
So the cosmonaut decides that the only way to save his sanity, is to fall in love with this sound. So he closes his eyes, and he goes into his imagination, and then he opens them.
He doesn’t hear ticking anymore. He hears music. And he spends the remainder
of his time sailing through space in total bliss. In peace.
He had to fall in love with the sound. Let’s think about that… with can that mean for You? What can that mean for all the areas of our life? Can we shift the perspective? Our life can sometimes be crazy, mentally hard and full of frustration. What If… we slowed down, took a deep breath and change our thoughts?
It’s so easy to be focused on the problem that we fee like we are going to go crazy (tap, tap, tap) because we think there is no easy solution. It grows stronger and stronger. But when we slow down, breath deeply, close our eyes and open space for God… the Universe to speak, we can find another solution. We can find the music and fall in love with it. It can build us and not break us. Instead of pushing it away, we embrace it and love it.
Love is very much on my mind and heart lately. I am listening to Marianne Williamson talk about the Course in Miracles. It boils down to two emotions Love or Fear. Since listening to it, I have felt the power of choosing love and oh boy does it feel so much better than anger, pissed, resentful, frustration or judgmental; which are all stem from Fear.
For me when I was listening to the Course in Miracles and it talked about the two emotions of Love and Fear. I looked inside myself and I
could see where I still held a little resentment in my heart towards someone that I felt hurt by. My personal journey is about taking what I know in my head and feel it in my heart. I made a choice that I would only have love for them. I saw how if I held resentment that disconnects me from all I desire. All I desire can only be found in Love. I felt those words go from my head to my heart. And from that moment forward I felt love for them. It was a powerful example for myself to feel the difference between both emotions. I choose love… I choose and open heart.
Now don’t think I am totally blissful and don’t feel fear and those emotions in my life because I absolutely do but now I ask myself how can I move closer to love?
There is so much power in the story of Russian Cosmonaut. I ask you where in your life can you fall In love with the sound? How can you move yourself closer to love?
Did someone do something that you feel was wrong towards you? Did something happen that you beat yourself up for? Do you feel angry, resentful, taken advantage of? All those feelings lead back to fear, let that be a red flag to bring awareness and then ask yourself how can I move closer to love?
How Do You Move Closer To Love?
Gabrielle Bernstein says:
The seven principles to move you closer to love:
- Be the gentle witness
- Be willing to choose love
- Shift your perspective
- Foster a gratitude attitude
- Practice the F word (Forgiveness)
- Expect miracles
- Reflect and recap
Allow yourself to practice moment by moment; daily those seven principles. That’s exactly what I dive into with the women I coach and it’s a beautiful thing to see and feel LOVE.
“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.” – Marianne Williamson
