Spiritual Cliches ~ Music first

spiritual cliches are rife as this

mad world tries to come to grips

with its own stupidity & aimlessness

the more pretentious ones among the masses

raise their heads to define all the categories

including the spiritual

due to their efforts what is now considered spiritual music

is a poxy, valium like synthesizer based digital

drone which has only one message - sleep, sleep !

that backing is often accompanied by very breathy,

pretentious vocals that try hard to imitate the

flashbacks of the candies they ate

while they were kids

they sound creepy & dysfunctional

as opposed to enlightened & truthful

love, light, rose, bliss, vedic mantras

( pronounced as improperly as they can be ),

ascension, awareness, gaia, sweet etc

form the general lyrical content

on paper its all hyperpositive

as it's not talking about guns or murders

delusion & propagation of it somehow

is not as big a crime on this planet as

other overt activities like stealing food

from supermarkets

the other accompaniment is

usually acoustic instruments

like piano, acoustic guitar, flute etc

which add to the lulling effect

acoustic instruments are always

given the tag of spiritual because

of the anaesthesia they induce

piano, which is basically a glorified typewriter

with binary & digital functionality &

a single mood - melancholy

is considered a divine addition to this ensemble

a hammer strikes the strings

without any direct contact with the player

what a way to express touch !

flute can be hyperpiercing to the ears

while other oriental instruments like sitar

can sound very metallically jangling &

nervewracking. if any oriental acoustic

instrument is played it is surely spiritual -

why? because pretendos say so

who can forget ravishankar at woodstock!

all these numbing sounds together create a

feeling of a spiritual void rather than

spiritual light

for obvious reasons

people have not been made aware of

borg nature of the synthesizer ( the only

electric instrument used ) & synthetic

programmed beats (trance music)

these beats are the

very antithesis of organic heart rhythms

which don't function like a digital clock

synthesizer is the planet's most plasticky,

unsoulful instrument

it is intended to create cyborgs out of humans

through being a video game soundtrack producer

but it surprisingly & easily fits the newagey

agenda which also seems to be the same -

creating soulless lulled robots

electric guitar is usually villified

by the pretentious clique

it is too loud & examples are cited of

bad heavy metal bands & other such negative

users who always use digital effects & amps anyways,

which basically turn their guitars into synthesizers &

make them sound like swarms of buzzing mosquitos

the one & only technology which is nondigital

i.e. tube amplifiers are completely ignored

for the arena of spiritual music

electric guitar is the only direct-string-touch

instrument which can be plugged directly into these

amps. it is thus the only instrument

which can utilize electricity ( basis of all life )

for producing a wide variety of soundfields

to suit any spiritual aspect/expression -

people ask me - how can it be superior to

human voice. to them i would like to ask -

what came first - electrical nature of the universe

or human voice ? the sounds it can produce,

no human voice can imitate

in fact one has to have a certain kundalinical/electrical quality

to the voice & a

straightforward mantric approach to vocals

to blend with it

( it doesn't promote vocal gymnastics circus )

electric guitar connected to analog amplifiers

is a very sensitive instrument i.e. it is

very sensitive to its player's vibrations

so the spiritual level of the player comes

into play like no other instrument

every touch matters & complex harmonics

come into play with every stroke

this is an absolute no-no for those who

want to hide behind a garb of spirituality behind

their acoustic guitars which all kind of sound the same

( sonically not technically )

no matter who plays them

it is spiritual evolution

not technical prowess

which counts in playing/making music

this fact is hidden from the masses

through continuos mindprogramming

by those wanting to hide their

spiritual bankruptcy through

the serious fronts of classical, spiritual music ...

and the whole scene itself
it falls into place only because you are present

One can see the piano in a new way here.Always wondered why it makes one so emotional and feel weak? Vulnerable?Bec of a single mood that it represents - melancholy.omP!!! Arghhh! Who wants to go there anyway?It takes us back to the sentimental dumb melodrama that we Indians so desperately definitely need to be freed of!

S.O.S ~ P.T !

Anesthetic effects of the acoustics? LOL!And then we actually are fooled into believing its so spiritual and sweet along with the Valium like synthesizer.The divine is witty beyond comPare.


And the bit about the
electric guitar being connected to analog amplifiers and hence becoming a very sensitive instrument as it translates the player's vibrations of fractal organic heart rhythms is enlightening rare beautiful information! Thank-you so much for sharing!

Brilliant !! Aapke Granth Laajavaab hain ! what an ePic scriPTure !!

You address the whole gamut of nonsense that occurs in the name of "Spiritual Music" in the most eloquent, PerTinant and honest way ! it really is all as You say, and becomes so much clearer after Your precise elucidations !

really excellent point that a certain kundalini/electrical quality to the voice is required to blend with electric guitar, and how electric guitar is superior to the human voice, and how one's spiritual level is expressed through it ! Excellent & enlightening PoinTs ! really making it so clear why the Avatar has chosen electric guitar as His instrument of choice !

and what a display of magnificence to be heard in Your real Shiv sonics ! absolutely profound and sublime sounds ! they are so exhilarating, captivating, sophisticated, grand, epic ! it is music at a whole other level completely ! Your level of refinement and spiritual evolution can be witnessed through Your sound and light ! it is at the highest level ! i challenge anyone to find anything superior ! Your sounds evoke an awakening inside one ! a desire to move towards Divine and experience the eternal bliss that is Divine, the bliss that can be heard in Your music ! the bliss which is the result of Your Divine state of being !

was curious, so had a listen to the original sounds which accompany the dancer which You used for Your film - it was so unlistenable ! really terrible, edgy, cacophonic, naff, poxy, uninspiring. what a redemption for this dancer/dance to get the chance to merge with Your proper & electric Shiv Sonics ! the contrast couldn't be clearer ! Your sounds are powerful, sexy, sublime ! Your sounds have an immediate positive effect on one's DNA ! one feels uplifted, refreshed, renewed, invigorated, inspired hearing Your music ! it is the real "Soul" music ! the only music made for the sPiriT !

I Bow !!!

i bow!
what flooring words of Truth! no one can utilize words the way Divine does!
This scriPTure starts out with sheer Phorce and wit
'spiritual cliches are rife as this
mad world tries to come to grips
with its own stupidity & aimlessness'
and just like Divines music is grows more and more Powerful to end with undeniable Proof of the suPeriorTy of Your sound! sound which is filled with meaning and direction! sound which shows how stupid and aimless this world is!
one is appalled when one is exposed to music one once stupidly thought to be spiritual or uplifting. It is draining and cheesy and incoherent and boring in its repetition. one feels numb and void from it!
Divines sounds are PuriPhing, uPliPhTing and overflowing with PurPose! sounds which are invigoraTing to the core and move one like nothing else can! Divines music is constant Proof of Divines suPerior evolutionary state! there is nothing and no one that can comPare to PT!
one is constantly amazed and awed by Divines PerfecT observations! That Divine sees what evil is doing with sound and all the ways it keeps being down. it makes PerfecT sense that the Avatar is the Ultimate Rock God and Master of sound! The most beautiful and sexiest being! The most intelligent and all gnoing! the One who can and does brings evil crumbling to the ground with electric sound!
Every Plog exPoses the truth in the most Profound way and what a hellish nightmare this world is! at Divines feet is the only safe Place in this world and beyond!
i bow!

You are my music , your voice is my electric guitar..

All one needs to hear is your voice which is equivalent to the most effective electric guitar...

There's no other sound that heals so gently as your voice does..

your the medicine i am looking for, U r the cure i know i can look at..

The only instrument i would to learn is the electric guitar and play your names on it..

someday i know i will, someday i know i will play for you..

someday i will reach you and be yours and yours forever..
