Lions Roar : May 2008
SHAMBHALA SUN MAY 2008 40 trying desperately to ignore and try- ing desperately to hang on to. There’s no end To the Love You can Give When you change your point of view To Underfoot The best songs come like this, the melody and the words landing on the brain’s sunlit kitchen table like a sing- ing telegram, a complete and precise little package of information. In that telegram is encoded the entire blue- print for the verses and chorus, a mu- sical strand of DNA. I cannot recog- nize the words, the length, or even the subject of the song, but I can detect something about how the song will feel when finished. I’ve always suspect- ed that this glimpse of the whole from the part offers an excellent metaphor for life and death. The problem with meditation, I thought, is that it unlocks the door to in- spiration, and the problem with me is that I am in love with my own inspiration. The match was on, and the art- ist knocked out the meditator with a single left hook. I let the singing in my head continue at full volume (I think I even let it out of my mouth occasion- ally and scared some squirrels). Then I returned to the center where I broke my no-writing-and-reading vows and jotted the whole song down. Barely ed- ited from that moment, it is now called “Delilah,” and it wound up being a key track on my band’s last album. I shared this anecdote with a friend, and he pointed out that creativity isn’t necessarily an obstacle to meditation but, rather, its fruit. Only now, several years later, do I realize the obvious. The moment of divine inspiration may strike at any time; the true meditation is to have the power and clarity to decide when, where, how, and even if I want to be struck. ♦ To hear The Dresden Dolls’ song “Delilah,” visit www.myspace.com/dresdendolls.

You’ve completed a few courses. Dabbled in one or two more. Maybe gone full circle on the workshop tour. And the longing to know more and be more is just as strong. Now what?

Use High Sense Perception to track and guide the flows of energy and to access vital information. Perform some of the most advanced healing techniques known. And much more. The four-year par t-time professional training program is also an incredible journey of self-discover y. Many students come for that alone. Others arrive with no experience of any healing modality, yet leave as amazing healers.
