This week I am in Bangkok teaching Gong Level 1 and 3 to an enthusiastic group of students from Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, the USA and Switzerland. What brings us together is a common desire to serve. It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the Divine - Isabel Allende
Yogi Bhajan said that 'The gong is the sound of Creativity itself. One who plays the gongs plays the Universe.' As a player we are conduits from source to our audience. First we tune in to our Self and tune out monkey mind distractions. For The calm mind allows one to connect with the inner Self, one's Soul, the very source of our being. That's where the music lives. That's where my (the) music comes from. - Carlos Santana
Congratulations to the most recent members of the gong community in Hong Kong and in Bangkok. They are truly the next wave of transformers for the Age of Aquarius.
Anyone who is passionate about what they do will have a better chance of connecting with future generations than those who simply follow transient trends.... their work will have a distinctive character and this is what people respond to.... Giorgio Armani
