Life as a Beautiful Melody
Truth is like music.
The mathematical perfection of music fascinates me. In the rigidity of the precise structure of scales, intervals, and notes, flows an experience of a harmonic melody that seems anything but constrained. It’s free, fluid, expressive, and seemingly beyond restraint. Yet, it’s the very rigidity that creates beauty within the rhythmic flow. One note out of harmony with the laws of music and it awkwardly stands out. So, out of 12 notes comes a variety of expression that continues to let composers construct unique compositions day after day, year after year. It’s an incredible display of perfection.
Active truth, truth we act and live by, is very much the same. When we live within the restraints of truth, our lives find an explosive freedom of glorious beauties. In truth, we live in harmony with all that corresponds to life and that harmony creates peace within and without. Peace brings freedom to living, expressing, and being.
The expression of truth is love. If there isn’t love inherent in the expression of a “truth”, then it isn’t truth. Truth can’t exist without love, and love can’t without truth. Truth expressed through a soul is an experience of a boundless love that is ever increasing, not rigidity. There is nothing more freeing that living in love. Yet, true love always flows out of truth for truth maintains and perpetuates love.
When we live by the expressed ways of love, thus truth, our soul grows in youthfulness, freedom, joy, peace, and rest. Without the suffocating stenches of death; anxiety, fear, stress, worry, lack, depression, anger, etc., which are counter to truth/love, our soul soars. Our personality finds an expression without limitation in its unique individuality. Like music, though the truths are defined, precise and unchanging, when they are expressed through our unique individuality they create the most beautiful expression of our soul personality. Though we may all walk in the same truths, our individual expressions are vast, unique, beautiful, and beyond compare. This is the incredible structure of our Father’s creation; uniqueness and beauty without limits coming from a defined set of attributes and laws of operation.
Shaping our Perception
This freedom, which gives expression to our personality and individuality, is derived from our perceptions. When we perceive our reality through a lens of fear, our soul is tainted in its expression with the elements of fear/lack. When we perceive through a lens of love, our soul finds its true expression, as it’s not hindered by fear/lack. Therefore, it’s our perception that needs to be purified or “filtered”, so that we see in accordance with divine love/truth, for all the interactions of life follow our perceptions.
This filter in our soul’s perception exists as a singular point of knowing. It’s knowing that our Father’s love is perfect toward us every moment and always has been, it’s sufficient for every encounter, and it’s always present helping and moving us closer to him. It is a singular knowing of his unfailing love in the heart of our soul perceptions. These truths of his love become our truths through our individual faith journey. Faith is the means of establishing new truths as our truths. Once we know, faith ceases for it has done its work. When our soul eye, the seat of our perceptions, has a deep knowing of the perfect divine love of our Father, then it is filled with light pushing out all the darkness, then we perceive as we should, in truth and love.
Without this knowing of his divine love, our perception is darkened by the possibilities presented by fear/lack. Thus, this filter functions like a point of light. It’s a point of light that filters all thoughts that come through our perceptions, by enlightening them with truth, so that all we perceive is of light (truth) and nothing of darkness (lies, lack, fear, etc). In this light, we see our present moment encapsulated in His divine love, and this perception is our freedom, joy, and liberation to all the elements of death.
We know this point of light has found a home in our soul, when we no longer perceive in fear/lack, but instead there is a peace that surpasses all understanding. For the peace isn’t born out of our surroundings, though his truth creates harmony in our surroundings, but out of our knowing of our Father’s love … a love that never fails, never changes, is ever-present, and sufficient for every moment. When this point of light has it’s home in our soul’s eye, we behold our immortality, for there is no separation in divine love.
When this point of light/knowing is our truth, we “see” our Father. Our Father’s reflection in our soul is the harmonious interworking of truth and love. Thus, in this purified perception, we are experiencing the inflow of His spirit through our souls and into our lives. This inflow is experienced as divine love.
With this filter in the very core of our perceptions, it enlightens all our thoughts of our present moment creating an accurate perception of our present. Therefore, we respond and act in the ways that create harmony.
Our present moment is a snapshot in time creating a sequence of one moment following another. The present is where the future and the past meet in our internal perceptions. In any encounter in our present, from an encounter with an idea, thing, person, or event, our mind recalls past memories and understanding, as well as extracting new input of the present moment. The combination of the two creates our perception. When we have this point of light in the eye of our soul, that light purifies the recall in reframing our memories in divine love/truth, and purifies the new input to create an accurate picture of the present moment. When we perceive in truth/love, then what follows is the divine intellect and love for that moment that creates a ripple effect of many more beautiful moments.
The beautiful harmonic melodies of music have an ability to express the emotions of love. Love, like music, is the universal language, a language that speaks to every soul. Living in the harmonies of truth, our soul speaks this beautiful language in a vast array of variety, a variety without end.
