“DJ Mackboogaloo is providing a series of monthly articles pertaining to Roots, Culture N’ Consciousness. We will learn the deep metaphysical principles that exist within the world of Music. Fela Kuti, pioneer of Nigerian Afrobeat music, coined the phrase, “Music is the weapon!” He understood the power of sound to unify & uplift the masses. Ancient civilizations knew this secret as well. Let’s take a look with ears wide open and explore this topic further.” –Rhythm Travels

As you take a walk with nature, you’ll find that there is music in the air, literally. Whether conscious of it or not, it is surely there, a never ending stream of purely “divine” orchestrated sounds. Science is now beginning to confirm, what ancient teachings have known all along, that “the world is sound”. Music is all around us but the “Powers that Be” want us to be deaf & dumb to the sounds of Consciousness.


Author, Joachim-Ernst Berendt, has written a groundbreaking book entitled “Nada Brahma- The World is Sound” that documents how music is the landscape of Consciousness throughout the galactic planes. In this book he points out that many spiritual people of the past have referred to God as being sound. In the very beginning there was sound and Berendt’s book goes into great detail that we, ourselves, are made out of sound.

According to Berendt, there are 7 basic laws of harmony and they are universal, written into our ears as well as into the macro & microcosms. They apply to everyone and everything. He acknowledges Plato for stating that the soul of the world is a musical scale. Thus, Berendt summarizes that true inner peace & harmony comes down to an individual’s ability to tune in to the harmonious chords & sounds of the Universe; as above, so below.

Berendt’s research remarkably bears light on the fact that planets move in elliptical orbits, which even though they have an unlimited wealth of possible orbits, they have chosen precise orbits that oscillate & sound in the proportions of undivided numbers prevalent in our music on Earth. In other words, they chose orbits that are musical, which would sound pleasing to the human ear if detected. He further points out that, on the microscopic level, DNA, atoms, photons and the entire periodic system all resonate in accordance with the principles behind music theory.

In Berendt’s book, we learn that Love is music, being that Love is the recognition of harmonic states, identical vibrations or identical harmonies. We discover that our Universe is loving & harmonic, demonstrated by its ability to keep trillions of planets, stars and galaxies in their place. We find that only though human discord does disease, suffering, ill will and disharmony manifest.


Berendt’s work further reveals that sound is vibration. From the standpoint of physics, there are billions of different possible variations of vibrations. The Universe, he points out, chooses from these billions of possibilities, with overwhelming preference, those few thousand vibrations that make harmonic or musical sense.

Scientists have been on a continuous quest to discover the basic building blocks of the physical world and Berendt’s researcher proves that every time these scientist reach a certain depth, a deeper depth is discovered, washing away the solidity of their findings. So, Berendt concludes in his book that it’s now becoming clear that at the heart of the world there’s only emptiness; the heart of matter is void. He says that out of this universal emptiness spawns a dance which spirals life into existence, thanks to vibration. Thus, the world is sound.


Conscious of it or not, we are swimming in a never ending stream of purely “divine” orchestrated sounds. To top it off, a benevolent higher being, named the Milky Way, is beaming our beloved planet with a special blend of musical energetics that is designed to accelerate our conscious awakening as we go beyond the crossing of Galactic Center.

In our Rhythm Travels, visiting diverse subcultures & communities, let’s open up our ears to a world composed of music. Let’s unite under the universal banner Roots, Culture N’ Consciousness. Culture is our weapon! Power to the DJ’s!
