MUSIC AS WHITE LIGHT
“I could compare my music to white light which contains all colours. Only a prism can divide the colours and make them appear; this prism could be the spirit of the listener.” Arvo Pärt
The first piece of music I heard from Arvo Pärt was “Tabula Rasa”. I was sitting on the sofa in the living room at 2am in the morning. It was the most beautiful Sound I have ever heard. Listening to this, I saw angels in pure white light surrounding me. There was so much warmth and love flowing through me as the music vibrated through my ears and soul.
Arvo Pärt’s music is like the clearest water coming into me and cleansing me. His tintinnabuli way of writing constructs alternating silences with lilting melodies and harmonies. The music breathes like a living being. It is a resonant bell that holds us captive and letting us go only when its beauty is done with us.
The silence in Arvo Pärt’s music serves as spaces for us to hear the deep inner music inside of our hearts. Pärt’s music led me deep into my inner space. Its a beautiful space- free from worries, fears and anger. There is only Light and Beauty in this heart space.
Here is Arvo Pärt’s “Tabula Rasa” for you to listen:
I wish you every success as I have had to find your way back to the tiny and most sacred space of your heart through Music.
