Life’s Symphony

From Anthony De Mello, The Way to Love

“It is quite impossible, of course, to be fully conscious of every note in life’s symphony.  But if your spirit becomes unclogged and your senses open you will begin to perceive things as they really are and to interact with reality and you will be entranced by the harmonies of the universe.  Then you will understand what God is, for you will at last know what love is….  It is only when you drop your beliefs, your fears, and the attachments that breed them that you will be freed from the insensitivity that makes you so deaf and blind to yourself and to the world.”

There’s too much there to unpack in one sitting, but this thought occurs to me — How many notes in life’s symphony am I listening to?
