Mysterious, magnificent, complex, haunting, dreamy -- If there is something that binds all these and many more such adjectives together, it is Enigma, the popular electroni musical project, which according to me should get the status of a cult.
I do not remember when and how I was introduced to it but it has almost been an addiction ever since. It was may be love at first sound! Before I knew it, the soul of the music had already become a part of me. I realised it only when someone close to me pointed my style of writing reflects Enigma.
Hear the music once and you'll feel an immediate connect. You feel there's a kind of energy that takes you somewhere deep inside of you. It evokes a sense of spiritual peace like one attains while meditating.
It celebrates optimism. It lets you believe in destiny...in love, in yourself, in life, in faith, in God, in the child in you and everything that the 'real' world says is not true...
"....If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don't hide
Just believe in destiny
Don't care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don't give up and use the chance
To return to innocence
That's not the beginning of the end
That's the return to yourself
The return to innocence.... "
