De Mystiek van het Geluid

Door Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882 – 1927)

94 Pagina’s | 7e druk, 2015 | Softcover | Uitgeverij Panta Rhei, Katwijk aan Zee | ISBN: 9789073207011

Oospronkelijke titel: The Mysticism of Sound

Dit boekje bevat een reeks lezingen van de grote soefi-mysticus Inayat Khan over de invloed van geluid op de menselijke geest. Het is een tijdloos boek, waaruit nog steeds veelvuldig wordt geciteerd. De lezingen dateren uit de twintiger jaren, en werden gehouden voor of na concerten van Inayat Khan zelf in Engeland, Frankrijk en Amerika.
Verrassend in de wijze waarop Inayat Khan in het hoofdstuk ‘Naam’ ingaat op de klank van een naam, en uitlegt hoe de betekenis ervan grote invloed kan hebben op de drager. Ook zijn gedachte over de functie van geluid in oosterse en westerse religies zijn uitermate boeiend en inspirerend.
Zijn ideeën komen voort uit de rijke traditie van het soefisme, waarbij muziek altijd nauw verweven is geweest met mystiek.
‘Wij zijn gewend om datgene dat wij horen geluid te noemen, maar er is ook het geluid van de geest, van het hart, en van de ziel’.

Music Forms – Superphysical Effects of Music Clairvoyantly Observed

By Geoffrey Hodson (1886 – 1983).

35 Pages | First Edition 1976, First to Third Reprints 1979 – 2004 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

This book records the results of certain clairvoyant investigations carried out by Mr. Geoffrey Hodson on the effects produced by music upon the adjacent matter of the superphysical worlds. Eight compositions, including Handel, Bach, Mozart, Haydn and Wagner were studied and the results are recorded here in words and colour. Mr. Hodson’s observations arising from his clairvoyant research were carefully taken down while each performance was proceeding, and to these descriptions pictures were produced by artists later. The music was under the guidance of Dr. Gordon Kingsley of Beverly Hills Church in Hollywood, California, and he has provided notes on the compositions.

Also included is a study of the responses of physical substances to various vibrations, carried out by the Swiss scientist and artist Dr. Hans. Jenny, published here by the permission of the author and the Editor of THE UNESCO COURIER, 1969, in which it appeared.

The Healing Energies of Music

By Hal A. Lingerman.

292 Pages | First Quest Edition 1983, second edition 1995 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835607224.

We all know, that the music we listen to affects us. A lively Bach Concerto encourages attention and clear thinking, while a CD of harp music and the sounds of ocean waves relaxes us and relieves stress. But how can we find just the right music to complement our state of mind, heal our emotional and physical ills, or further our spiritual  yearnings?

In this revised and updated edition of a best-selling classic, musical therapist and teacher Hal Lingerman presents a  wealth of resources for choosing and locating just the right music for physical, emotional and spiritual growth and healing. With comprehensive lists of current recordings, including new and remastered CD’s, Lingerman’s exhaustive sourcebook will guide you in finding music to benefit your temperament, lifestyle and spiritual aspirations. Includes expanded chapters on Women’s Music, World Music, the Music of Nature and Angelic Music.

From Chapter 3 – ‘Finding Your Music’ (p. 58):

” Music is a cry of the Soul. It is a revelation, a thing to be reverenced. Performances of a great musical work are for us what the rites and festivals of religion were to the ancients – an Initiation into the Mysteries of God and the human Soul. “

Life Streams – Journeys into Meditation and Music

By Hal A. Lingerman.

340 Pages | A Quest Original, first published in 1988 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835606295.

‘Like a carpet ride, music carries the listener/reader into the Eternal in daily meditations, that both delight and inspire’. 

This inspirational book of daily meditations offers readers, who appreciate music an enriched multi-media experience. Lingerman blends suggested classical and New Age music with daily meditations, anchored by passages from some of the greatest Souls in history. The result is harmony and balance. A meditative theme sets the tone for each day, followed by a quotation from Thoreau, Schweitzer, Franklin, Lincoln, or perhaps Pythagoras. Then guided imagery sets a general course for the reader to ‘take off’ on the theme wherever intuïtion may lead. Finally, a selection of music is recommended to highlight the daily theme.

The reader/listener may focus on a daily classical selection from Dvorak, Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi or perhaps Ravel. Popular New Age musical selections are listed as alternatives to persons, who may prefer the soundscapes of Zamfir, Paul Horn or perhaps Richard Musk.

From Pages 319 & 320:

December 21st

” FOCUS: The Angels help man as far as he can be helped. They intensify all his highest aspirations, stir up his adoration and his love, and to give effect to the ancient and beautiful words of their traditional Hymn: ‘Glory be to God in the highest, on earth peace to men of goodwill’. – Dora van Gelder.

MEDITATION: Feel the Angels today, stirring your sense of joy and adoration. Let your heart open now; feel the surge of the Spirit, the current of life coursing through you. The glory of God shines through you.

MUSICAL KEYNOTES: Jakub Jan Ryba, ‘Czech Mass’ (Matl-Supraphon). This very ancient setting of the Mass, for soloists, chorus and orchestra, brings a devotional quality and contains many beautiful melodies of adoration.

Zdenek Fibich, Symphony No. 3 (Belohlavek-Supraphon), Love and nature are the themes of this wonderful music. In the adagio (slow movement) a sense of bliss and deep devotion emerge to bathe the listener in sound.

Soundings of the Planet: Joy to the World (box 43512, Tucson, AZ 85733). This contemporary statement of Christmas contains a joyful spirit of adoration. “

The Beautiful Necessity – Seven Essays on Theosophy and Architecture

By Claude Fayette Bragdon (1866 – 1946).

111 Pages | First Quest Edition 1978, originally published in 1910, with illustrations | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A | ISBN: 0835605078.

‘Let us build altars in the Beautiful Necessity’. – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

This is both a historical and contemporary overview of the parallels between the evolution of architecture and the evolution of mankind. Nothing can be said about this book that is not said better by the author through the prolific use of this finely crafted diagrams. Please leaf through these pages. You’ll surely be impressed with the 91 exquisite designs and the stark clarity of the message they convey.

I have difficulty in convincing Masons, who have read this book that I am not an Initiate in the 33rd Masonic Degree, and I was conscious of a strong Egyptian influence during the writing of it. Some impulse prompted me to try to present my thought solely by means of pictures and symbols, as was the Egyptian method.

From Chapter VI – ‘The Arithmetic of Beauty’ (p. 91):

” Although architecture is based primarily upon geometry, it is possible to express all spatial relations numerically: for arithmetic, not geometry, is the universal science of quantity. The relation of masses one to another – of voids to solids, and of heights and lengths to widths – forms ratios; and when such ratios are simple and harmonious, architecture may be said, in Walter Pater’s famous phrase, to ‘aspire towards the condition of music’. The trained eye, and not an arithmetical formula, determines what is, and what is not, beautiful proportion. Nevertheless the fact that the eye instinctively rejects certain proportions as unpleasing, and accepts others as satisfactory, is an indication of the existence of laws of space, based upon number, not unlike those which govern musical harmony. The secret of the  deep reasonableness of such selection  by the senses lies hidden in the very nature of number itself, for number is the invisible thread on which the world are strung – the universe abstractly symbolized. “
