Last week I opened my blog post with a link to meditation you tube link. Silence, after all, had been the topic and thrust of the week. The music within this link was Ludwig van Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata Opus #27 in C# minor. Click the link to listen as you read. (Why the picture doesn’t show up I don’t know.)
This piece continues to stir up power beyond measure within me. Actually this piece is significant as it a piece he composed at a time he was growing increasingly deaf. Imagine a successful pianist, composer, musician, losing the ability to hear his own music!!!! Beethoven would cut off the legs of a piano to have it closer to the floor. He would then lie on the floor, so he could feel the vibrations of his own music. Do know this, the music did sing in his heart. He heard it in his thoughts and mind. It was the creative power of thought, the vital force, the Infinite Spirit singing to him.
You see, I am nearing 60 years old, but when I listen to this piece I am the young woman, 19 years old performing this piece. Yes, I actually performed the first and second movements. It took well over a year of practicing day in and day out, hours and hours; but, these moments were moments when God truly spoke to me. These moments of practice were my moments of silence during the chaotic emotional days of young adulthood.
It is when we reach these decade marks of a birthday, we look back, my birthday is not for another couple months, but this the Master Key System course will draw to a close and yet, another chapter of the book of my life will open up. When I look back, I see someone, who was never quite satisfied, I see someone who was always seeking, striving, to do more, to be more, BUT, some how, life got in the way with it’s bumps and bruises. I saw myself doing the awful rowing toward God. God had a way of opening doors for me when several windows had been shut tight; and once again, I felt like the young woman of 19, but this time I was in the course, the journey through the Master Key System.
The journey had renewed my spirit and has enabled to set the sails of the course and chart the destination the direction in which my life shall go. Yes, I still am rowing toward God. It’s God’s chart and I set the sails to maneuver the wind of HIS breath. My tool box is fully equipped, packed and I am almost ready to go.
