Music for Our Souls

The experience of meditation is unlike any other. It is difficult to define because it is an entry into such radical simplicity that we lose even the words to describe it. Because it gently penetrates to the deepest centre of our existence, it involves and influences everything in our life with a marvelous capacity to unify. Past and future merge into the present. Fears and obsessions melt. We see the good in our enemies. We are expanded by love and we expand the world by love. Every contemplative consciousness is able to absorb evil into the good.

These are only some of the notes of a great music of being that we become able to listen to by making meditation part of our lives.
