Near Light, by Ólafur Arnalds

What is the “Light”?

The “Light” has often been associated with religious ideas, mystical thoughts…

I encourage you, every day, to take some moments for yourselves, even a few minutes, and try to do something which brings you happiness and bliss: reading a poem, listen to a song, enjoy the silence, take a stroll in the park, contemplate a painting, the ocean… And this way, you will connect with the “Light”, and maybe, if you make these few moments some sort of habit, the “Light” will stay and will eventually inhabit you…

This melody, by Ólafur Arnalds, in crescendo, is represented visually with a sublime video. Both the music and the visual creation express the need of human beings to connect with the “Light”, to find some sort of Beauty and transcendence in life.

I am lucky because I connect with the “Light” in many different ways. Today just a message from my soul friend made me feel like the person in the video coming out of the train and embracing the ocean and the rays of sun.

* The last stanza of a draft poem

(…)

Private universe

Ours, precious, infinite

Where the light does not vanish

Where the sun will not die
