Bouguereau – Angels Play Violins
Playing Life in the Keys of Nature
Listening to Neale Donald Walsch the author of Conversations with God, he said the most important thing God ever told him is when She said Neale . . .your life has nothing to do with you . . . It has to do with everyone whose life you touch.
Think then of God-Goddess as the great Musician-DJ-Conductor-Film Director all rolled into one. According to the ancient Hindus our lives are woven into the tapestry of three principal great demi-Gods. These are Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva – the trinity expressed in Hindu terms. Now consider for a moment that time – from the point of view of a great God is a flexible commodity. Not at all the linear structure we mostly perceive at all. If Brahma is the creator, Vishnu is the maintainer and Shiva is the destroyer then these are the modes of nature – quite simply Goodness, Passion and Ignorance.
The key is three. There are really only three great keys or modes that we play in and we move from key to key throughout our life. But of course the greater level of consciousness (God-Goddess), has access to the final cut as it were. Whatever we do that pertains to eternity in each of the three great modes can be edited, spliced, mixed, mastered . . .re-mastered and produced in high quality, high definition for the greater and expanded experience of the principal dieties. What to speak of the ultimate consciousness, who we could think of, in the final analysis as . . .everyone else.
So God is a giant cosmic donut dunking herself in her own cup of coffee. Why of course it had to be! For there is nothing that resides outside of the absolute. Are you sharpening the image of life by bringing up the contrast a notch? Are you contributing to the great symphony by providing the counterpoint to the main theme? Or are you playing a shimmering solo with tenderness, virtuosity and miraculous passion that moves others to tears? Whatever the answer is, it is your answer. And you are perfect the way you are. Please continue. Keep going. Play it Sam. The song is you.
