As your heart and mind merge, you discover that the Music of the Spheres is but a higher octave to the Breath of Life and learn to tune to it to its ever more subtle frequencies. And as the Breath of Life purifies emotional trauma, so the Music of Life washes away all mental drudge and reveals ego as a painful discordant note.
You begin to see that when you lose step with the Music of Life, that life becomes self-created struggle. Yet when in tune, you fly through your day in grace, effortlessly solving one problem after another with a quiet mind and uplifted soul. You clearly see that only your stubborn cleverness blocks you from experiencing ever more celestial beauty within and without, and begin to explore the natural, cross-cultural mysteries of conscious near-death experiences.

"From the midst of that radiance, the natural sound of Reality, reverberating like a thousand thunders simultaneously sounding, will come. That is the natural sound of thine own real self. Be not daunted thereby, nor terrified, nor awed." —The Tibetan Book of the Dead, edited by Evans-Wentz
