Ancient people attuned to the harmonies of nature. Since God created nature, ancient people attuned to the harmonies, rhythms and melodies of nature - literally. For example, they had no artificial timekeepers, such as clocks, but lived in sync with nature's rhythmic patterns. They watched the patterns of stars moving in the sky, compared them to shapes, reduced them to numbers and used the numbers to create frequencies and rhythms. This was a method of drawing near to God.
The poem below, which I love, describes Mother Earth as one big musical instrument!
"The Music of the Spheres
A harmonious universe is like a harp.
Its rhythms are the equal repeated seasons,
The beating of a heart,
The going and returning of migratory birds,
The cycles of stars and corn,
The mimosa that unfolds by day and folds up by night,
The rhythms of moon and tide,
And apples that ripens and falls.
Melody, accord, arpeggios are the harp of the universe.
Unity behind apparent multiplicity that is the music."
One of our beloved readers added to this poem!
"Sharing our own inner lining...
Is a delight we all may partake.
As our hearts beat in rhythm together...
The heavens also know what's at stake.
And the truths of our purpose is given...
To all eyes that desire to see...
May God's light guide us all on our journey....
To remembering what we all used to be...."
Let us be one with Heaven & Earth!
