Today, a reading.
“Ancient stories…tell of men speaking with trees, with running water, of sounds coming from the rock. A man without patience will not stop to listen, he hurries on. He is ready to laugh at such things,but there is nothing surprising or impossible in it. This world which is around us sounds continuously; the word re-echoes in all things. Only man must be aware of his privilege, of this underlying oneness of all life. The whole treasure of the Universe is in the understanding of the mystical idea. ”
from The Mysticism of Sound and Music. The Sufi teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan.
