What Raving Teaches Us About Life
I haven’t heard this masterpiece for a while…
I don’t know why, but this song takes me so high, to some other dimensions especially if I play it loud.
Perhaps, the reason is that I’ve heard this song for the first time in the theater venue in Amsterdam with more than 1200 people around me.
It was one of those moments, when — you know — everyone grabs its head and looks up surrendering with everything that exists around at that moment.
Your eyes start to shine, you get goosebumps, your heart starts jumping and your blood somehow becomes warmer, filling you entirely in every tiny, single part of your body.
New and unknown song but so good, so loud and matching exactly with everything that needed to be cleared by that time.
Suddenly, you stop listening only with your ears, but you start hearing from the heart too.
You look around and you don’t see people’s faces anymore, only satisfaction painted on them and altered states of mind.
Free states of mind.
Without any substances, just with the help of musical notes.
That’s why I always loved electronic music and raves.
Because of these moments of emotional togetherness when everything doubles, triples if you experience it with more souls at the very same time.
Milliseconds, to be precise.
Scientifically, if we all start to sing in these moments, our heartbeats synchronize.
Imagine that your heart beats at the very same moment as the heart of the other 1000 people in the room.
How powerful is that?
The music is the only honest tool that connects people on deeper levels.
Only with high-frequency music, we remember that we are actually one.
