in the Musical Harmony-Space
The Listener beyond Space and Time
Musical Creative Power as a
Function of Pure
The Cosmic Wind as the Soul of Music
Knowing Unity in Music
the listener has gone through the musical sequence-spaces in his social experience
of many converging individual paths of cognition, and once he has reached
the gate to the harmony, then behind all the individual life-paths he beholds
the unity which organizes them and powerfully keeps them together in the harmony.
And he witnesses the perfection with which this lively unity of music untiringly supports the free individual unfoldment of the motifs.
the fires of cognition of the sequence gather together in the supreme musical
sacrificial fire which is performed in the harmony, at the basis of all music.
In this absolute world of music beyond space and time the innumerable cognitive fires of music form the many shining, licking tongues of a single great sacrificial fire of music burning with the highest and purest radiance known in music.
All the flames pervade each other with a golden shine, like a single flame flickering in itself with infinitely many tongues, and convey the complete picture of the musical truth to the keen understanding of the music listener.
And as the warming, flowing glows of this supreme musical sacrifice merge into each other in an infinite flow, they sway in blissful dance from unity again and again back to unity and miraculously warm the fullness of feeling in a manifold manner.
However, the complete musical experience in this perfect musical world of magic is permeated in the harmony with the almighty and all-creative powers of a new, unlimited world beyond space and time, which the music lover now very spontaneously localizes within himself.
Finally, as he enters the infinite space of the harmony beyond space and time, the listener sees many eternal, fulfilled life-paths infinitely flowing together and into each other he sees and knows the nature of the harmony and, through this, makes the experience of pure self-knowledge.
reached the field of pure self-knowledge, the music listener becomes a music
creator, for the function of pure self- knowledge begins immediately to stir
his individual creative forces with the thrust of infinity.
From within the new creator of music now the sequences, the motifs, and the sounds issue forth in colourful sequence and enliven his new realm of music.
absolute music-world of the harmony is held together and organized through
the unearthly breath of life, through that cosmic breath which breathes through
all true music like a primordial wind, and which sustains it from within as
the soul of music.
And the music lover knows this breath of life to be his own, inner breath.
