This has only been experienced for a few moments … Still, it is really rather pleasant!
There is listening … to that bird.
There is spherical listening … All sounds in the sphere your ears can reach.
There is this hard to describe thing … Just you and the sound.
Comparing: Imagine you are sitting in the center of a beautiful glass bowl, a few hundred yards in diameter. Before you, an old radio, notepad and pencil.
Listening: That bird song comes thru the radio …you notice, describe, and identify the sound, grab up the pencil and make a note.
Spherical Listening: All the sounds around you come thru the smart-radio, re-created in their real world location … you identify, grab the pencil, write the note.
The Hard To Describe Thing: Radio, pad, pencil, table, and whatever you were sitting on fade away, oh, also the bowl and the one sitting.
You are present … The sounds are
Another way … Emptiness embraces the arrival of each sound
Oh yes, and emptiness has a feel … Very gently pleasant.
Bowls By Annie…
