Music of Enlightenment What makes us feel drawn to music is that our whole being is music; our mind and our body, the nature in which we live, the nature which has made us, all that is beneath and around us, it is all music; and we are close to all this music, and live and move and have our being in music. Therefore music interests us and attracts our attention and gives us pleasure, because it corresponds, with the rhythm and tone which are keeping the mechanism of our whole being intact. © Hazrat Inayat Khan ♡ Favorite track: Delicately They Dance.

​Swedish producer Ludvig Cimbrelius, also performing under the monikers Purl, Eternell, and Illuvia, has crafted a new collection of blissful sounds, utilizing layers of processed vocals over a bed of delicate guitar swells and luscious atmospheres. These four long pieces effortlessly flow together while drifting transcendently with the listener.

'I find intimacy to be a natural occurrence. Like water evaporating when the sun warms its surface, the experience of intimacy can be described as the secondary glow of a radiance too bright to experience directly – that of the unity which underlies all existence.

In essence, we are already beyond intimate with all things, dissolving in the perpetual light of one Sun.

In dreams, we may feel the glow of its rays.'
