100 Words: Music & The 8BC System

Principle 3: Music & The 8BC System…a little ditty

P3 person listening



John Cage’s piece 4’33” illustrates that there is music everywhere, all around us.

The difference between sound, noise and music is how I think about it, how I approach it. Listen with body relaxed, spine upright; mind alert, without preferences; spirit open and curious about what sounds appear next.

Music is everywhere, all around. The state of Relaxed, Alert and Waiting (RAW) invites listening with awareness, insight and clarity. Whatever I am listening to, the practice of RAW invites me to increase, circulate and use the energy within me and around me
