Ascensio(N), the follow up to my release Awake(N), is the sonic result of the way an Awakened Heart can respond to the natural struggles involved in everyday life.
There is nothing real outside our perception of reality. One’s perception is all we have control over and attachment to any external entity, activity or substance which provides temporary relief from pain leads only to further suffering. Suffering which at it’s most intense can ironically lead to Liberation via the seemingly insane belief that something not of this earth, beyond our understanding and control has all Power and is filled with only Love.
To find your way it is a requirement to first admit you are lost. A verbal term for this awareness is personal and I will not venture into possibilities because reference to specific practices of this basic principle inevitably leads to pointless controversy. It’s not so important to know the name of your street, but rather to be walking on it. A mystic may point to the Truth, but waste no time arguing about the finger – with each step toward Transcendence of fear, courage will grow and bloom.
