I remember many times during my early years taking music lessons. Music came easier to me than it did for many others but it was still hard work. Often, I would have rather been outdoors and doing other things! Today, I am so grateful for those times because it is the countless hours spent learning and playing music which provided me a foundation for understanding the use of sound and rhythm. And that is one big reason I am able to share this blog with you now!
Perhaps you’ve heard during the time of Confucius that when Chinese sages and diplomats visited towns and villages throughout the countryside, they didn’t necessarily ask to meet with their politicians and civic leaders, they asked to see their musicians!
Confucius and the other great philosophers of his land and time believed there was a hidden significance to music which made it one of the most important aspects of life.
Indeed, it was Confucius who said: The noble-minded man’s music is mild and delicate, keeps a uniform mood, enlivens and moves. Such a man does not harbour pain or mourn in his heart; violent and daring movements are foreign to him.
At about the same time in history, Pythagoras the renowned Greek philosopher and mathematician, discovered that all music could be reduced to numbers and mathematical ratios - and that the entire universe and all phenomena therein could also be explained in these same terms of the same particular numbers and mathematical ratios found in music.
It was Pythagoras who said: The highest goal of music is to connect one’s soul to their Divine Nature, not entertainment.
Later, in the nineteenth century, it was Saint Germain who introduced the waltz in Europe by inspiring its magnificent renditions upon Johann Strauss and Johann Strauss, Jr.
The waltz is one of the most beneficial types of music because its three-quarter time is the rhythm of your heartbeat; therefore, your heart is both beating and resting in sync with the rhythm of the waltz. And that, my friends, can produce great harmony in your world!
It was indeed part of Saint Germain’s plan to introduce the waltz as a forerunner of the violet flame. People living in that era, although they probably did not realize it, were actually bringing the violet flame into their world through dancing and listening to waltz music. And as they danced and whirled to the waltz, they were increasing their vibration by speeding up the rotation of the electrons around their atoms!
Are you ready to enjoy some beautiful music while at the same time experiencing the joy of the violet flame? Following are very inspiring waltz videos to watch. Notice how you feel after experiencing the 3/4 time with its 1-2-3 , 1-2-3 or long-short-short , long-short-short rhythm of each waltz.
