What sort of external music resembles the internal one

If you are used to the ethereal music, that the inner senses reveals when the outer ones are partly turned off, memories of these harmonies may be triggered when listening to external music from artists like Charalambides. This image, that is grabbed from the web, is a cover from their album ´A Vintage Burden´.

Mozart might have gotten the inspiration for his compositions from hearing ethereal music inside of him. This is not to say, that his music sounds exactly like that. Rather it is to say that the flow of his music resembles the effortless elegance and beauty of ethereal harmonies originating from inside, when the outer senses are more or less closed. That is except when Mozart wants does not want impress the audience by adding more action to the compositions than the natural flow of it calls for, because ethereal harmonies never built up to a peak.

Church bells and similar sounds, that do not add up to something specific, resemble inner ethereal music. Not the monotonic pattern of repetition though like in for example church bells, because ethereal music is the music of chaotic harmonies.

Contemporary electronic music, that consists of glitches and other sonic artifacts, spaced out or slowed played steel guitar, analogue or synth sounds mixed with for example piano loops, chimes and bells into ambient textures in very long tracks, that seem to be without beginning or end, have much resemblance to the ethereal music revealed by the inner senses in the organic way it appears to move on without going nowhere. The electronic music though has a lot harder edge to it and a less transparent sound than inner music, which has a crystal clear but distant sound to it with no sonic artifacts needed to produce the ethereal harmonies.

The kind of new-age music, that are dreamy symphonies of otherworldly states – for example Karunesh and Marsen Jules – does not resemble ethereal music, but the new-age ideas of us all wakening up in a merry-go-round world, where everything is always right, which of course is an illusion, because something cannot be right without something being wrong.

Ethereal music is not a dream about something better, neither is it symphonic or anything that suggest else a sequence of something happening in time, whether that is to wake up or whatnot. And it is definitely not otherworldly, as it is echoes of that which is one and there is no other world than that, since it is formless and therefore endless.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, however, the random sounds making up ethereal music may be remembered as if they fit together like in a symphony, because there is a sense of bliss or stillness from these random harmonies united in one perpetual present.

Appearing in the world with eyes and ears wide open it is obvious that all experiences are deceptions, so I see no sense in meditating or do anything else to experience higher states of mind, as they are just as deceitful as all other experiences. If I want to relax from appearing in the world of the outer senses, I shut them down by not following the urge to get excited from specific experiences. In other words, if I do not try to escape boredom by finding something to get excited about, the world of the inner senses opens up.

When I appear to be in the world of the outer senses, I deal with it by letting the outer senses do the navigation there, as the inner ones are hopeless in regards to that. Yet they are great in regards to in how to perceive it. In my case I do not listen much to external music resembling the interior music. In general I prefer more mundane music, when dealing with the world of the outer senses.

Kind regards

A list of articles mentioning the inner ethereal music:
