Music for the Soul is such a wonderful ministry!
There is an old Irish story about Fionn Mac Cumhail. Fionn asks his followers, “What is the finest music in the world?” They suggest answers: the cuckoo calling from the hedge, the ring of a spear on a shield, the baying of a pack of hounds, the laughter of a gleeful girl.
“All good music,” agrees Fionn. “But what is best?” they ask.
Fionn answers: “The music of what is happening.”
Being present in the here and now, aware of what is happening in and around us is the music Fionn was speaking of.
Watching the first snow fall of the season as large snowflakes cover the ground, feeling sad as thoughts of my neighbor who will be moving away soon filter through my mind – and this is just the first verse! – yet this is the music of what is happening in and around me this very moment.
