Enlightenment City in seven days
each day opens up a new realization
as you acquire it
you and your suffering part company
Multivariant organic unity. The music raises a tidal flow to a new sense of hearing, a new source of affection, a new physical experience.
Multivariant organic unity.
Possesses the genetic spirit of East-West multivariant styles,
but without the form of existing East-West musical styles.
The music transforms into a new structure, a new language.
It raises a tidal flow to a new sense of hearing,
a new source of affection, a new physical experience.
There is no pre-existing fixed realm.
There is a kernel of every realm,
but there is no outer shell of any existing realm.
It is a new realm, a land of enlightenment.
Wherever the enlightened one goes,
that road leads to enlightenment;
wherever the enlightened one stops,
that place is a city of enlightenment;
the road and the city accompany the enlightened one.
The unenlightened one is subject to radical alterations of mood,
and may feel happy for no legitimate reason, sad for no legitimate reason.
The state of the enlightened one is both an alternation and
a fusion of a trembling soul, an illusion-free soul, and a tranquil soul.
The music is precisely the affective state of this alternation and fusion.
