25 Songs, 25 Days

Day 4: A song that calms you down

This is an easy one. I have had several over the years. At different times in life, music flows into my world, bringing me peace of mind, and a sense of calm. Hanshan Temple Chant became my most recent go-to song when I needed to climb back down off the ceiling.

It puts me into a cycle of moving meditation, not so far removed from doing Tai Chi Chuan. From the beginning gong, wrapping myself in the gentle melody, and drinking in the equally warmhearted voices.  Everything becomes slow, beautiful movement, and I am floating.
