Sound

I have worked through only 4 lessons with Sam Harris (‘with’ is a fundamental) Wake Up Meditation course and already there is change. I suppose I have some sense since I have been trying to practise mindfulness for a few years now. It’s never been a sustained effort, although even the little effort I made taught me much. I have perhaps searched guidance. I find no confidence in these new age gurus with their hocus pocus and unnecessary vocabulary. I am not interested in some sort of exalted living. I merely seek clarity and reason. And this is why I love this interaction with Sam. Lesson 4 introduces Sound as a source. I am a musician and yet I have never used my hearing in this simple and open way, everything is new.

“As a matter of direct experience, you are simply the space in which these sounds and feelings in your body are appearing” – Sam Harris
