Music - in an initiatic teaching

Music is a power. It inspires emotions, feelings; it is rousing. But that is not enough. Emotions, feelings and fervour must be given direction, and the right direction presupposes a philosophy, a wisdom. In a philosophy conceived by initiates, music is always present. Why? Because the universe itself is music; it is a construction based on and ruled by the laws of harmony. And Cosmic Intelligence has given all creatures a specific note, a sound, a voice, so that they may form a symphony in the universe. Don’t you feel happy at the mere thought that right now the whole of creation is singing? Doesn’t it make you want to join in with the song? The merest harmonious vibration on earth puts us in touch with the great cosmic harmony.
