I just found out today that my nephew has to take a short trip for his job. This 80's song has been going through my mind ever since I heard he would be stopping in this city for a few days. The words "...not much between despair and ecstasy" always rang true to me. I hope no one finds offense in the song. If you do, the moderators can delete it.

I was just looking and posting to another thread about songs consistent with the Dharma. I don't think this would totally fit the description, but it did speak to me at the time. I can remember laying or is that lying (I can never remember) on the floor with my head between two smallish speakers loving this song. You see, this may have been the first or at least one of the first, to have parts of the music pass from one speaker over to the other. It was especially effective on the instrumental part. I was in my teens, but the words "Good things must end. They never last," stood out as important. Uh oh, I am feeling right nostalgic! lol At the end of one side of the vinyl album one side said "turn me over" and the other side said "play me again".




Just listened to this with headphones. Still flows from one ear to the other! How neat! Showing my age, again :oops:

Not actually listening to this song now, but a recent thread subject has repeatedly reminded me of this song:

Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

and on a more uplifting note one of my preferred tracks for some escapism

I've used this little gem for some years now. An ex-friend turned me on to it.

I usually stream Lounge or Downtempo Lounge, sometimes Ambient or others depending on mood, etc.

Use the Channels drop-down menu at the top, and pick a genre.

Think of it like techno radio.
  • "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.
