Conscious Music you have probably never heard of | #4 | Man of No Ego - Blinkers Removed

in #stress-relief6 years ago (edited)

A most magical psybient and chillout album of the meditative sort, Man of No Ego's "Blinkers Removed" is a timeless journey into calmness and our inner world of the human spirit.

It was recommended to me by a friend I met at a psy festival years ago, and I still find the album incredibly valuable to have in my life, especially when I feel overwhelmed with a situation or when my mind is giving me a tough time. This music always manages to calm me down.

If you are having a tough day just put on this album, lay down for an hour and let yourself go - you will feel better - I promise <3

The album blends magnificent synth landscapes, deep beats and guitars into a marvellous sound journey of warmth and ease. The dynamic range is incredibly satisfying, the album breathes like a conscious being and we travel from silence to moments of full immersion constantly.

"Blinkers Removed" features quotes by the controversial spiritual figure Osho that underscore the non-hangup message of the soundscapes we encounter. And while I have never been a great Osho fan, I have found myself in several situations since first discovering this album where his quotes really drove the point home for me and I found a way to relax my anxieties and tensions.

Relating to the words spoken thus becomes entirely dependent on my attitude of the day, while the words stay the same. His voice will further help the calmness of the mind, especially if you find you want to meditate but can't quite let go of obsessing over your thoughts: Listening to a calm voice talk about the limited nature of the ego can be quite the permission slip to let go of our attachments - if only for the time being.

"Blinkers Removed" has been fully released to the world with no strings attached - the entire album is downloadable for free in high quality at www.ektoplazm.com, available as MP3, WAV and FLAC.

If you feel you dig the music and what it does to your inner world, giving this album to someone as a gift has become effortless - you just send them a link or burn a cd for them.

Since this music tickles the frequency spectrum of human perception to a mighty degree I always recommend the highest listening quality, as in WAV or FLAC. Listening on youtube might be a nice start, but if you dig what you hear definitely consider downloading the album, as youtube's highest quality in audio does not surpass 320 kbps.

If you wish to support the artist directly you may still choose to buy the album via his bandcamp site https://manofnoego.bandcamp.com/album/blinkers-removed-432hz

As a musician I deeply admire his decision to make listeners choose voluntarily whether they want to pay for the music. I feel the music business can really use more initiatives like this.

Lastly I want to note that this album has been geared towards a 432 hz tuning, which further aims to support a deep and relaxing feel and level of auditory depth utterly missing in the vast majority of today's music geared to the less natural and tense 440 hz tuning.

I would be thrilled to know; How did you like this album? Did it transport you somewhere else? Did it manage to calm you down?

It really must be one of my top five albums ever made, so without further ado, enjoy this grand journey into calmness and tranquility.

Blinkers Removed

All quotes on this album by Acharya Rajneesh (Osho)

Then for the first time you look around
And the beauty nature is revealed
Then you listen to the harmony of the universe
The symphony of the stars
Than everything starts to become more and more beautiful
Layers and layers of beauty are revealed
You eyes have a penetrating force
Wherever you look
You go deep
Even in rocks
You feel flowers blossoming

What you are
In this vast universe
Not even a small cell

If you listen to the ego
The ego will put you again and again
On a neurotic path
The path of being somebody

For your real being no competition is needed
You are already that
The highest

But man is very egoistic
He cannot feel at ease
Just to be himself
He wants some great mission
To be attached to his ego
I don't see any
The whole may have something
But no individual has it

Life you can live, as if you are in a hypnosis
That is how 99% people live
Or you can live with intensity, awareness

If you live life with awareness
You mature
A Mature ones, never dies
Because he will learn even through death
Even death is going to be an experience
To be intensively lived
Watched
Allowed

Everything that is, is now
Everything that is alive is now alive
Now is the only time
The only eternity

Darkness does not exist
It only appears to be
In fact it is just an absence of light
Light exists
Remove the light
There is darkness

This moment is all
And my insistence is this
That you are already that which you are searching

A child is energy
Sheer delight and energy
Just jumping for no reason
And so happy
That even if you reached to the paradise
You will not jump like that
And he is jumping for nothing
Or he has gathered few collored stones
And is simply mad with delight

Be like a child
And always retain
The purity

Life is a river
A flow
A continues
With no beginning
And no end
It is not going somewhere
It is always here

Enlightenment is not something that you have to choose
When there is no choice
That which remains is enlightenment

The ego is afraid
It is saying
What are you doing
Loosing yourself

Listen to the gaps
Between the words
Listen to the emptiness
Between the lines
Listen to me not what I say
Then an understanding will arise
And suddenly like a flash of lightening
You will be able to see me
And the original that is right now happening before you

Life seems just a shadow of breath
when breath disappears
Life disappears
So this phenomena of breath
Has to be understood

This is the way to live
One moment
Be in it
But be in it so totally
That nothing is left be to carried in another moment
Never carry on things from the past, it is gone
Every moment, be rid of it
Solved or not solved
Nothing can be done about it
Drop it out

Why this constant inquiry
What to do
Can't you allow life in any way

You can waste your life easily, with comfort
You can live comfortably
And you can die comfortably
With me, there is danger

I think I found Tycho from YouTube suggestions after Man Of No Ego albums lol
