Motoshi learned the art of playing the harp as part of a spiritual discipline.
Previously a guitarist, he observed a lack of unity and consistency in his music; and so became interested in a system of philosophical ideas known as The Fourth Way, introduced by G. I. Gurdjieff, P.D. Ouspensky, and
Soon Motoshi began work on his inner development at
an esoteric school in California, led by Robert Earl Burton, and founded on the basis of The Fourth Way.
With miraculous speed, Motoshi learned how to play the harp by applying the principal methods of Mr. Burton's
teaching -self remembering and divided attention.
Motoshi had been playing the harp for only 3 years before recording this CD.
"Reach the invisible by the visible,
the spiritual by the physical.
The soul is the bridge.
When you have established contact with the spiritual
you will have confidence
in that which has to be done"
