The Light Inside

Musings on the Light Inside
Listen to the song here:

The Light Inside
By Reaction Mass

I can feel it
    the light inside of me
Shining through
     from Eternity

I am light
     light is me

This is a song about meditation, about the experiences I have when my mind goes quiet, my thoughts drop away, and I can feel my connection to the universe. When “I” go away, sometimes it feels like there is light shining through the space where I used to be, bringing light into the world. For a bit, all my cares and worries cease, the void is absent, and all I feel is love and connection. Those are good times 😊

Musically, this song is heavily inspired by “Sleep”, by the Dandy Warhols. I first heard this song over ten years ago. Still, every time I hear it, the extended instrumental and vocal section of the piece takes me away. It’s one of those works of art that stuns my mind into silence, induces a state of aesthetic arrest.
