How to Find Eufeeling
“Most of us go to our graves with our music still inside us.” ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
Oliver Wendell Holmes, in the quote above, is telling us that we are missing something. Or more rightly, we are ignoring something so vital that without it life loses its music, the very thing that gives it substance. I am reminded of the shadow world of Plato’s cave where the cave-dwellers believed the totality of life to be flickering shadows thrown on the cave walls by firelight. There they sat, observing and debating the reality of their shadow existence. All they had to do to experience life in all its glory, the pungent smell of earth, the gentle sighing of the wind, the vibrant blues and reds and yellows of a meadow in full bloom, was simply to turn around and look out the mouth of their cave. At that very moment they added their music to the symphony that is life.
You are a unique instrument in the symphony of life. (I know, I know, pretty corny but it makes the point.) You must play the music you are. A drum cannot play violin music. To play the music you are, you must first find the music you are. Your inner music, the harmony that sings in symphony with all creation, is your distinctive display of Eufeeling. Aware of Eufeeling, you cannot go to your grave with your music still inside. You step out of the shadows into the full light of day. Like a bird cannot stop itself from sharing its song with the world, once you are aware of Eufeeling the song that you are will burst forth upon this world with joyous thunder.
Next week I will introduce you to the Eufeeling Technique. If you would like a head start then go to the Kinslow System website at: www.KinslowSystem.com
