Amen ! Although one may delight in the reverberation OM (as I still do), one can go beyond even that.

Yes, classic sounds!
And the many layers! Ah.
Ha, one day follow only these sounds, no expectations ...see where they lead! It's like a little magic carpet ride, just for you.

Since I am retired now and, during this pandemic of social distancing and physical isolation, I am essentially on a never-ending retreat and hence it is easier for me to sustain the retreat state that you described above.

I am at an advantage in being retired and, only yesterday, I walked 7.5 miles as a continuation of that silent retreat-like meditation process.

P.S. I loved your hamster video. A picture/video is worth a thousand words.
