We all search to find the peaceful place inside our heart and soul, where love abounds. Thanks to Shambhu and our mutual friend, Christopher Buttner at PRthatRocks I’ve happily arrived at that spiritual space in time. Its more than coincidental that Shambhu is a Sanskrit name meaning, “Source of Happiness.”
I have marveled at the sounds, textures and meditative feelings I am receiving from Shambhu’s New Age recording, Shambhu: Sacred Love, Feel the Journey.
We connect on various planes of thought, Shambhu and I. The first level of connection is spiritual. For through his music he calms the mind as our psyche tries to cope with the rapidly accelerating universe where we thrive to co-exist.
The second connection is a mutual affinity I posses with Shambhu for well stated guitarists who are a creative force in music, energy and light. I have been a long time fan of John McLaughlin and Pat Metheny. I hear the echoes and influence of these artists in Shambhu’s playing. I actually hear something more profound when I open my heart to Shambhu’s tone and resonance. I arrive at a place of renewal and spiritual awakening when I listen to Sacred Love. Shambhu’s music is the essence of the morning light unfolding the soft petals of a rose, revealing the fragrance of the flower to the joy of our senses.
The third connection is more astral-physical. I am an instructional technologist. I have 30+ years of experience in the information technology sector, where I now teach and design instruction for the Web and the physical classroom. Shambhu is a technologist and a spiritual healer. These are the truest essences of my soul. My journey has been to become a cognoscenti in the disciplines of instructional technology, Web design and music journalism. I visualize these three disciplines in congruence. They are the zen of my work-life balance.
This is where my spirit intersects with Shambhu, a.k.a. S. Neil Vineberg. We share a mutual affinity for spirituality and the healing power of music, transcended through technology. S. Neil Vineberg is working with a company called ThingLink, who is bringing a revolutionary collaborative digital medium to market. ThingLink provides a collaboration of technologies that lets you place a SoundCloud audio player inside your photos, connecting them to music, sounds and effects, voice annotations and narrations.
I’m not able to display what Shambhu and ThingLink have achieved together in my WordPress blog post due to code restrictions on wordpress.com. Please click on this link to see this compelling technology advancement.
These are the three reasons that compell me to connect deeper with Shambhu’s musical journey. I urge you to listen to his music, Sacred Love, Feel the Journey and to watch the video documentary on YouTube that articulates how each song is architected. http://www.youtube.com/shambhumusic
You’re in for a rare treat. So unplug yourself from all the electronic trappings that prevent us from floating downstream and listen to Shambhu’s gift of spiritual, healing music. The happiness you have long been seeking will truly become your natural reward.
