finding our life's music

that great Sage don juan matus once told carlos castaneda that each of us has our own unique song. the song of our life. this we must search for. it was intimated that finding the True Self will lead us to our unique Life Song.

this is probably what prompted that other great Sage, walt whitman, to write his poem, Song of Myself. part of it goes --

A child said What is the grass? fetching it to me with full hands;
How could I answer the child? I do not know what it is any more
than he.

I guess it must be the flag of my disposition, out of hopeful green
stuff woven.

Or I guess it is the handkerchief of the Lord,
A scented gift and remembrancer designedly dropt,
Bearing the owner's name someway in the corners, that we may see
and remark, and say Whose?

Or I guess the grass is itself a child, the produced babe of the
vegetation. 


i am in my own journey of finding my own song of myself.

early yesterday as i browsed through the yahoo tidbits there was this item about the song how great thou art performed by carrie underwood and vince gill. i curiously viewed the video clip. here's the link --

oh, how i unshamedly wept by myself.

i know why.
 
i felt that in this great hymn of praise, rendered most solemnly by two amazing performers, within its prayerful lyrics and sublime melody is my own unique song.

i shall find it, the song of myself.  in the meantime, O Infinite, how great Thou truly art!

Namaste my brother, so often music touches my heart making me cry. When love is so full in our heart it becomes difficult to hold back when we see others share love so beautifully.

In Lak' ech, love with notes...
