A great unseen force is awakening, a force that has been keeping us company throughout the passing years.
Invisible to our sight yet a force forever present, we always hear its assorted songs and melodies, filling our surroundings with the magic of great and magnificent angelic scores.
We share our lives with the endless sounds of Nature’s unforgettable harmonics. In our busy world, we seldom find time to pause long enough to listen to the hymns of the ages, verses that include messages filled with renewal of hope and that surround us with masterpieces of endless beauty, designed to maintain and stabilize our perspective.
Most of the distress we subject ourselves to comes not from the smallness of our possessions or the lack of grandeur in our estates, but from an excess in our desires. We allow ourselves to be afraid that we will not always have cake when what we need is bread. Plain living allows us access to higher thinking, permitting us to rediscover this same harmony whenever we find ourselves strolling along a river bank, a seashore or a hiking trail that leads through the woods, where leaf and sun, birdsong and opening blossom welcome the introduction of new thoughts.
Refreshing beauty, peace and the songs of resurrection – is this not the story of Easter?
