Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Istiqlál (Independence), 15 Kalimát (Words) 175 B.E. - Friday, July 27, 2018
"There are two kinds of music, divine and earthly music. Divine music exhilarates the spirit, while earthly music has an effect upon the body. Divine music belongs to the Kingdom of God, earthly music is of the mundane world. I hope you will be confirmed to study both kinds of music so that you may be able to sing the anthems of heaven and the songs of this world."
I had an interesting experience with Indian flute music today. I listened to a hour of meditation music and wrote a poem for "Melting Snow" . I will have to try this again with I'm having problems with writing a poem. Another interesting experience today concerns "Beauty is the Ocean" , the line "Beauty is the ocean" popped into my mind. I know the idea came from my soul or perhaps Baha'u'llah. Anyway I used that line as the title for the poem about the the Republic of Seychelles.
