"No matter how much you want the mind to be free of thoughts, resisting them only creates tension."
It takes tremendous rootedness, strength, power, and perseverance to acknowledge what is happening right in front of you. It's easy to push your true emotions and feelings to the side, and to not fully process what issues you may be going though; a bad breakup, a fight with your parents, recently losing your job. It's times during duress that require deep discipline and strength to remain present and process your emotions.
"Himalaya" by Ellipsis emits warm, triumphant tones throughout that encapsulate this very idea. Saturated with deep, earthy undertones, and heavenly repetitive chimes, this track takes you on a quest that throws the mantra of "I can" directly into your soul, where you have no choice but to confidently acknowledge your emotions.
So go on and give this home-brewed track by Matt Jenko a listen. With Himalaya, you'll have no problem rooting down and conquering whatever life throws your way.
