Can you believe the news? First we have earthquakes and tsunamis resulting in extreme loss of life and nuclear radiation in Japan threatening to extend around the world. Then we have destructive tornadoes in the south and more death and displaced people and the Mississippi River is flooding again. Even a royal wedding isn’t enough to distract us from feeling the pain in our world. And now with the death of our so called worst enemy, do we feel any safer?
We love this quote by Martin Luther King, Jr – “I will mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” How can we lift ourselves from the depths of negative news and free ourselves from feeling caught in a whirlwind of mental confusion? The good news is there is a way, a path to peace and it is available to everyone. We are grateful for the ability to calm our minds through meditation and soothing music no matter what is going on in the world. May the gift of Peace Through Music bless your life every day, in every way.
