Wow there’s nothing that’s make me feel any better than having a Bob Marley reggae kind of day. It’s Spring and yeah, its great to be alive. “Sun is shining and the weather is sweet now. ” There is something sweet about that reggae beat that just makes you want to smile. It’s irresistible, even when you don’t feel like it, you find yourself right smack in the middle of your happy dance!
My yoga teacher, Saul David Raye says , “Bob Marley was one of the worlds great prophets because he spoke a universal language of love that touched the heart of everyone.” Sometimes the sweetest meditation you can have is to be totally lost in the moment through movement and music. When you are yearning for the universal feeling of oneness music can be the souls best friend. Just for a bit the world ceases to exist. You dance like no one is watching. Your feet turn to wings, your heart starts to sing and you simply disappear into the essence of the eternal flow.
Samadhi doesn’t always have to happen seated on your cushion. In fact it occurs naturally all the time when our minds are completely absorbed into a single focus of attention. When we stop long enough to truly listen with our hearts as well as our minds we become one with the rhythm of all creation. Is it Roots, Rock and Reggae, or Is This Love I’m feelin’ ?
Jai Ma to “One Love, One Heart”
