The world moves without concern for those living in the present. Individuals like ants, building civilizations, creating histories and becoming prophets for others to follow. In fact, looking at the history of earth, there were five great extinctions with one wiping away 96% of species. The world moves on without concern, like energy of the sun, infinite physical properties beyond the understanding of most. Life and death are trivialities. Most individuals treat their environment with equal lack of thought and care. Subjects of man made realm, timeframes within a massive eruption or asteroid strike. The world moves forward without concern.
New Directions in Meditation Tonalities consist of two twenty minute pieces, each holding one side of the cassette. The first side is titled Ocean Resonance. These sounds and spoken word seem to explore more of the of the mind and body. Attention to our presence and how special the moments we live truly are. The second side is titled Lifestyle Slow Motion. Tones with a more ethereal vibration and words focusing on the conscious reach beyond our physical space. Each side ends with Zen Monk Jogen letting go and Omni Gardens extending the musical path for reflective drift. The coolest aspect of New Directions in Meditation Tonalities is the double take on when this was created. There is a seventies vibe from the meditative recordings of that era, but this is now and absolutely spectacular. The 1973 photography reference through things off too…
