Poems are the rough notation for the music we are ♫ ~Rumi

Life itself is music – Hafiz

Music. Music

I have ruminated on the quote by Hafiz, which took me on an interesting journey to discover the background behind his quote. I learnt from this article “Music of the spheres” that his quote was inspired by an Eastern legend about how “the soul has entered the body of clay or matter” in order “to experience the music of life, and to make this music clear to itself”.
 .
On a similar note, I learnt from this article that “We can be touched deeply, at the very core of our soul, and be instantly connected to the Divine through the power of sound. Every single atom in our Universe is in vibration and emits a frequency. Sound is energy vibration that falls within the range of frequency we are able to hear… Rhythm can be used to alter rigid energy patterns in the aura and physical body. Each of our chakras resonates with a specific tone on the musical scale and can be balanced and cleared accordingly.”
Yes, I can relate to this as I am often touched deeply at the core of my soul and be connected to the Divine in us through the power of music that is able to balance and clear my chakras. I feel peaceful and joyful when listening to such music, and music is one of my main avenues of healing and restoration that I turn to, besides Nature and meditation, for example, whenever I feel stressed or disoriented.
.
I also visited the website of “Song of the New Earth” that is mentioned in the picture of the quote in your email, and I learnt from its webpage on “how sound vibration speaks to our souls and bodies by opening a door that bridges our cognitive thinking; catapulting us towards insights into the miraculous”. Yes, there is something about music in all its beauty and mystery that makes life much more colourful and alive, in its power to move us, inspire us, calm us, soothe us, heal us, soothe us, and feel us in all our moods and emotions in a deep and profound way. Like the poem “Awake” says, “you are the music, you are the song, you are the melody, you are a workmanship created in Love”.

Naked and Sacred (lyrics)

When Im with you, I feel naked and sacred
And this world can be so cold
I wanna hold you naked and sacred
Till I grow old

What does love mean? Can love last?
I ask myself these questions, haunted by the past
Ive walked these city streets, Ive known victories and defeats
Searchin, hopin, just barely copin

Baby, I want to be good for you
I want to be true
Dont know how Id live with myself
If I ever hurt you

When Im with you, I feel naked and sacred
And this world can be so cold
I wanna hold you naked and sacred
Till I grow old

Since I met you, my lifes changed
I feel like a bird thats been let out of its cage

Baby, I want to be good for you
I want to be true
Dont know how Id live with myself
If I ever hurt you

When Im with you, I feel naked and sacred
And this world can be so cold
I wanna hold you naked and sacred
Till I grow old

Your hands healing me, your loves filling me
When you go away, your heart’s still in me

When Im with you, I feel naked and sacred
And this world can be so cold
I wanna hold you naked and sacred
Till I grow old

When Im with you, I feel naked and sacred
And this world can be so cold
I wanna hold you naked and sacred
Till I grow old

“You’ll be okay” By A Great Big World

I have listened to the song a few times. It is a sad, touching song and is also hopeful at the same time. This part of the song lyrics “just look inside, you know the way” reminds me of a similar quote I came across some time ago – “Trust the wisdom of your soul. It knows the way.” Yes, we can trust the wisdom of our soul as it knows the way.

We Thank Thee – Jim Reeves

“I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.”
—e. e. cummings

We thank Thee each morning for a new born day
Where we may work the fields of new mown hay
We thank Thee for the sunshine and the air that we breathe oh Lord we thank Thee
Thank Thee for the rivers that run all day
Thank Thee for the little birds that sing along the way
Thank Thee for the trees and the deep blue sea oh Lord we thank Thee
Oh yes we thank Thee Lord for every flower that blooms
Birds that sing fish that swim and the light of the moon
We thank Thee every day as we kneel and pray
That we were born with eyes to see these things
Thank Thee for the fields where the clover is grown
Thank Thee for the pastures where cattle may roam
Thank Thee for Thy love so pure and free oh Lord we thank Thee
Oh yes we thank Thee Lord…

I like this gospel song about thanksgiving for a new born day, for the sunshine and the air we breathe, for the rivers that run all day, for the little birds that sing along the way, for the trees and the deep blue sea, fish that sing and the light of the moon, that we were born with eyes to see these things, for every flower that blooms, the fields and the pastures, and for the Love of the divine/spirit/universe. It reminds me of this verse “the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness”. Yes, the divine love of God/universe/spirit is ever present with us and for us, and like the quote by e.e. cummings says, God/Divine Love makes our day amazing with everything “which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes”. I am uplifted by this inspiring quote and song.

In This Love Together [Lyrics]
Words: Michael Bernard Beckwith, Music: Stephen Bray
Take a breath
As the Buddha described
“Once you hear the Truth, it’s not going to rest
Until it becomes fully available in your awareness”
There are some blessings happening in your life
And you don’t even know about them yet
There are some blessings happening
Begin by counting the ones you can see
You’re the spiritual image
and likeness of the presence
Take a breath right here
We are here to hold the space
Where we’re beginning to really see that
The presence of God is everywhere, everywhere
We want to rise high
And we have to see it to be it
We have to see that
Begin to see
with the eye behind the eye
Hear with the ear behind the ear
Feel with the heart behind the heart
So that they can see the invisible
Hear the inaudible
Do the impossible
There are some blessings happening
It’s just too good
It’s too good, this is too good!
My life is just too good
The love is just too good
My blessings are just too good
The harmony is just too good
My life is just too good
Prosperity is just too good
The love is just too good
Oh, it’s just too good
chorus
We’re in this joy together
We’re in this peace together
Oh, yes! Oh, yes!
We’re in this Love together
We want to rise high
And we have to see it to be it
We have to see that
Begin to see with the eye behind the eye
Hear with the ear behind the ear
Feel with the heart behind the heart
So that they can see the invisible
Hear the inaudible
Do the impossible
Chorus
