After yesterdays blog on Wayne Dyers quote 'Don't die with the music still inside you....', I found this quote by Christina Rossetti on-line, and decided to dip into this topic some more. Here are some musings on the musicality of silence.
Silence is the womb of all creation.
The space before time began.
It is a cauldron bubbling with pure potential and a space of infinite renewal.
It is the space between each heart beat,
and the space between each breath as well as the space between all sound.
Silence is, just as I am.
Silence beats its own drum,.
Silence - a call from the Universe, bringing us home to the majesty of the Self.

Tomorrow is Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. We are about to experience the shortest day and the longest night, before the sun turns its radiant face back towards us,offering hope and new life even as we are still cloaked in the depths of mid winter.
In the hurly burly of our festive preparations, spare a thought for the true meaning of Christmas. Yes it is a time for celebration, as well as a time for children. It is a time to celebrate the wonder of life and a future still laden with possibility for the common good even amid the heart-ache of all the hurt we see in the world right now.

This Wayne Dyer quote really struck a chord with me this morning. But I couldn't quite work out why. It really stopped me in my tracks, and lead me into another space altogether.
At first glance, music and silence don't go together. But what if the music is the silence? What if the music, crafted in the majesty of silence, is a song for peace? What if we each have our own note to sing, which when added to everyone else's creates a symphony of silence so profound that we all remember just who we are.
And what if that symphony, becomes a huge out pouring, a collective out breath and surrender to the PRESENT MOMENT, a knowing that everything is just as it should be....and that we are all part of the same whole.
