Sweet Symphony of Life
Life is One All-inclusive Symphony, a Perfect, Harmonious Symphony with an infinite repertoire of jubilant joy and sweet sorrow and all the nuances therein. The symphony does not discriminate against, nor is it intimidated or disturbed by its sorrowful parts. It does not ignore the passages that sing of anguish and pain or of the agony of loss; it does not try to silence them or to pretend they are something other than what they are. It plays them with as much heart and gusto as it does its light and happy, glorious and triumphant parts. It is all One wondrous Symphony echoing the Sweet Wonder that is Life. The lonesome violin reaches the depths of the soul and opens the Heart to feel...not to make judgments of good and evil but simply to feel and to let Be. The most tender and loving parts of the Divine Symphony in facta sing of the sweet sorrow, of anguish so rich and so deep to reveal the delicate beauty of God's Love.
Outside is inside and inside is outside. Symphony knows ALL of Itself by knowing what it is and what it is not...it knows all this within Its Own Self-Awareness, Its Own Self-Revelation. Symphony does not condemn itself, it does not condemn its false notes, it strikes the precise true note pure and clear and holds that note until all instruments resound to its perfect pitch.
If the instruments (individual you/me/microcosm) are not tuned, the Symphony (macrocosm) can only perform a cacophony. In tuning, the false notes are played, the lies are exposed and harmony is restored as all instruments play in the same pitch. The Symphony now gives a Perfect Melody of Joy and sorrow, one as beautiful as the other. Instrument in tune, one tastes the sorrow's sweetness and knows there is no evil. Inside is outside and outside is inside...in unison we sing the One-der (wonder) and Glory of Love as the One and Only Son(g) of God made tangible in the brotherhood of man. Nothing is changed, yet everything is changed. We could say conversely that everything is changed but nothing is changed...but our world is New.
We are the Awareness, God's Awareness being aware of ItSelf playing that Melody of Love. God could not Know or examine ItSelf other than through/as this One right here. We are the where and the when of the Divine Symphony disclosing Itself to itself. There is nothing to do or change, the time is NOW to clang the cymbals and shout "Halleluia", I am already It", and to march on with courage to the beat of our very own Heart's drums! The Symphony that is one with each and every note frees the Heart to leap for joy and dance to Its own Delight or to weep and let the body shake in anguish or despair from every form of loss and to be free.
(I found this in my old files...not sure if that is the complete essay...it wouldn't appear so but I think it stands on its own to make a point.)
This " Blogger maker!" is not working properly but I don't know how to fix it, so please bear with me.
All my love,
