New (old) song: Impermanence

Here’s a new recording. Impermanence. In this world nothing lasts. Everything around you will one day disappear. Everyone you love one day will be all dead. This is not dark. This is not depressing or morbid. This is just a simple fact. This song is about it. Buddhists know this and are pretty cool about it. The modern, western civilization tries to ignore it and watch TV. But in the end, only death remains…

Impermanence is one of the most important concepts for Buddhists, without accepting that everything is transient, you’ll never achieve buddahood. Accepting death and inner peace go hand in hand.

In keeping with this Buddhist  view of the matter, I decided to take John Lennon’s concept of making a song that sounds as if you were sitting at the top of the himalayas…this is my take on it… soaked in reverb and just chilling. The song is really a mantra. Same chords repeated all the way thru, cyclical, like life.
