Walling Bend COE Camp, Whitney, TX—Monday, I drove to Lake Tyler, and met up with Glenn Morrisette. I met Glenn about eight months ago in Santa Fe, and mentioned the encounter briefly in the Why I’m a Mystic video.
I set up camp next to his Chinook and we talked into the night. More below the break (huh?).
I’m certain Glenn got something out of our conversation—but that sounds pompous, so I’ll lie and say, “I don’t know if Glenn got anything out of our conversation”—but I definitely did.
Glenn is a very smart, rational musician—which is kind of an odd mix when you think about it, but then so is a computer programmer/photographer turned mystic. We got along well.
During our conversation, Glenn mentioned how Miles Davis—a kind of regular guy and not a formally trained musician—would often hit his notes so perfectly that it was almost as if the music were playing through him.
To hear Glenn describe it, it was something akin to a mystical experience.
Nearly every great artist—musicians, painters, yes, even photographers—will tell you that to really produce great art, you have to get out of the way of the flow of the art.
You have to let the art flow through you.
When Glenn was talking about that perfect Miles Davis note, at that moment it clarified what exactly I was looking for in my pull toward solitude: To, as much as humanly possible, get out of Her way and let Her Light shine.
I’m not talking Messiah here. I’m not talking channelling. I’m not talking about anything religious or spooky. Indeed, I’m just talking about something that is perfectly natural and is seen all the time in little children.
I’m talking about becoming as transparent as possible to Her notes, to Her song, to Her music.
I am talking about surrendering to Her completely.
Open yourself and learn to hear Her song. Become transparent so that others may hear Her notes move through you.
Let Her song move through you. That is what I mean by surrender.
