Orchestra of life 

In this vast cosmic orchestra, peace is the music of every heart. Our happiness lies in understanding, listening and honoring that music.  Amit Ray 

If life is an orchestra, then what instrument have you found that expresses the music of your heart? 

Over time, I have learned which are not my instruments in life and I have tried a few of them! Sometimes I have believed I should play instruments that don’t suit me, or that I  believe others would want me to play, but that has never allowed peace or happiness in. 

Being in an orchestra means we are apart of the entire music piece and each of us has a gift to play our part well, so that the music flows easily and sounds beautiful. 

I have learned that no matter where I go in life, I am still apart of this orchestra and each decision I make, affects the music around me. 

The timing of my music is also vital to the harmony and flow of the orchestra. 

There are times when I need to play my part and there are times when I need to sit, listen and wait, so that others can play their important part too. 

When I truly know what my part is and I honor and practice that each day, I begin to connect to an infinite source of music, and learn to create harmony in every part of my life.

This is love: To fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.  First to let go of life.  Finally to take a step without feet.
