The goal of religion and spirituality should be peace, joy, love, and harmony. In Stone Ten we read about adding our voice to the music of the earth. I recall a song that was popular in a television commercial that said, “I’d like to build the world a home, and furnish it with love, I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.” I don’t know about perfect harmony, that would leave me out, but I like the idea of having a song the world could sing that would unite us in peace and love.
Singing is important in most religious societies. For those who have decided to follow a spiritual path that doesn’t involve organized religion, I would like to encourage you to remember the importance of music. Singing lightens our mood and can bring tears of joy to our hearts. It helps us remember we are brothers and sisters having a spiritual journey together.
As I listened to a remake of that song from the television commercial, the last line resonates loudly with me. Let’s sing together “A song of peace that echoes on, and never goes away.” Don’t worry about harmonizing with the music. Just sing. Sing in your way — from your heart. Unfettered, loud, and strong.
