Aligning Minds - A Noble Truth by Aligning Minds published on 2013/01/30 03:32:09 +0000 In celebration of our new album 'My Heart is Love' being released today on Gravitas Recordings, we've featured a track for either stream or download. IF you want to download this track and/or the rest of the album, it's available for free for the next 30 hours:: http://music.gravitasrecordings.com/album/my-heart-is-love-2/ 'A Noble Truth' was written in a few days, and based on the inspiration of the buddhist teachings 'The Four Noble Truths', which is the central doctrine. The track both reflects and embodies the idea of utilizing the act of creation to transcend 'dukkha' (suffering) and achieve a state of connected-ness . As you listen to it, you'll hear that it starts off much more frantic and aggressive, sort of representing dissatisfaction - but then it evolves into a meditative state, evoking a sense of serenity that is simultaneously comforting and lonely. Then, again, it shifts, and the cycle continues. This is more about the process of fluctuating duality than some tale of enlightenment. :) Hope you guys enjoy it!
