“Don’t die with your music still inside you.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Hiking in the forest up above a Bavarian village, I had the sense that at any moment Julie Andrews would burst upon the scene, singing her heart out. When it came to singing, she just couldn’t seem to help herself. She made music wherever she went.
Even though we never caught a glimpse of Fraulein Maria on our hike, the hills were alive with the sound of music, coming from the bells around the necks of the cows grazing all around us. The cows just couldn’t seem to help themselves. They made music wherever they went.
I think we are meant, like Maria, and like the Bavarian cows, to make our music wherever we go.
Our music is just another word for our life.
The one we are meant to live.
The authentic one.
The wholehearted one.
When the music is ours, it isn’t a performance.
It is an offering.
When we find our music inside of us, we just can’t seem to help ourselves. We make it wherever we go.
