If one is looking for validation to the extraordinary times that we are living in, consider the astrology which signifies our great journey into the emerging timeline of expanded awareness. Certainly, we are rising as the process of ascension is accelerating. This month is no exception as it marks the presence of extraordinary alignments that should be recognized and understood for those who care to ride these waves of aspected energy into the emerging path of fourth and fifth density awareness.

Densities have nothing to do with physical placement, for they are layered upon the same location. It is consciousness the solely determines density of presence, or perhaps more accurately, the presence of our soul’s awareness determines the density. Furthermore, it is our soul’s attitude that alters the environment which means that many of us already live in a fourth density sphere, which expands or contracts to the situations that we invariably find ourselves in. For the most part, we do very well until confronted by insoluble problems that we still face in the remnants of third density linear life. These are old energy Saturnine elements that are ruled by numbers that constantly remind us how and what must still be transfigured or discarded as we move collectively into the higher realms of a more truthful and loving space-time reference.

Happy Sunday.

I was looking at Damian’s picture, trying to figure out what music might be appropriate. Sometimes I have a specific piece of music in mind for the {sunday} picture. Not today, so I did what I have done most of the time since I started combining images with music however many years ago. I look at the picture and then I try to conjure a piece of music that makes me feel the same way. Sometimes I think of an artist and see if any music comes to mind. I was looking at this and thought maybe a classical piece would be good, but what composer? I thought “Beethoven” and the “Grosse Fugue” instantly came to mind. It was originally the final movement of his thirteen string quartet, but it was so weird, his publisher insisted he write another final movement, so Beethoven turned it into a free-standing work. It was not well-received in its day. It was strident, grating, even ugly in parts, but magnificent throughout. This is a much better interpretation than the one I used to listen to fifty years ago (I can’t remember who the conductor was).

Here is what Alex Ross, author of The Rest Is Noise, a fantastic history of twentieth century music, said about the the Grosse Fugue (the Great Fugue) upon having the privilege of being able to look at the actual score written in Beethoven’s hand:

Yet the pull of the past can be hard to resist. There I was, staring transfixed at the pages on which Beethoven’s hand had copied out the wildest, grandest fugue ever composed. One reason that many distinguished people went gaga over this discovery—Lewis Lockwood, the leading American Beethoven authority, said to the Times, “Wow, oh my God!”—is that the Great Fugue is more than a piece; it’s a musicological Holy Grail, a vortex of ideas and implications. It is the most radical work by the most formidable composer in history, and, for composers who had to follow in Beethoven’s wake, it became a kind of political object. Arnold Schoenberg heard it as a premonition of atonality, a call for freedom from convention. (“Your cradle was Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge,” Oskar Kokoschka once said to Schoenberg.) Benjamin Britten, who took pride in tailoring his music to the needs of particular performers and places, was heard to complain that Beethoven’s late works were at times willfully bizarre, prophetic of avant-garde, obscurantist tendencies.

Once again, Happy Sunday.
