The Beautiful Notes of God's Symphony

Updated on July 19, 2012

So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth.” ~Bah’u’llah


Quotes of Love, Kindness, and Gratitude

What makes a classical piece of music beautiful?

Is it a particular note in the piece that makes it spectacular? Or is it the arrangement of all the notes that make the piece incredible. These notes consist of tones of varying vibration; and in addition to these notes, there are also rests. These periods of silence in which a tone is not played are just as important as the notes, because they can build anticipation and excitement. “I wonder what is going to come next.” Then we come to the emotional experience of classical music.

A classical piece of music will often take one on a journey through a variety of different emotions. Doesn’t this sound like life itself? On our life journey we have all experienced highs, lows, and the in betweens. Classical music is different than traditional pop and rock music, which will usually follow a predictable steady grove throughout the piece, whereas as a classical piece usually doesn’t. You might think the piece is going to stay on its current course, but a switch in notes takes the piece to another road. This is also similar to life. We may think we are supposed to sail to a certain location, but then the wind gets hold of our sails and takes us in a new direction. Now, I would like to talk about these beautiful notes of God’s symphony.

These beautiful notes are us. We are each a beautiful note in God’s symphony. Each note is unique and special. As in a classical piece of music, not one note is more special or more important than the other. God loves the notes of the symphony all the same. They are all beautiful music to God’s ears; and even though we appear to be separate from one another, we are actually One. We are not only the beautiful notes of God’s symphony, but we are also the symphony itself. We often get so caught up in only seeing the differences that we forgot about our true connection to one another.

We are all a part of this beautiful symphony we call life.

I truly believe that we should celebrate our differences. This is what makes life interesting. Imagine if everyone looked and acted just like each other. This would be mighty boring. However, our society is bent on having everyone look the same. When I was in high school, if a person didn’t wear designer jeans and sneakers, they were made fun of.

What does this say about individuality and uniqueness?

In our educational system, it is not set up to honor the unique individual. It is truly sad to see so many talented and gifted children fall through the cracks because their unique peg doesn’t fit in society's square hole. There is a very important song by Supertramp called “Logical Song” that talks about the dangers of conformity. For those that are interested, I wrote an article about that song entitled "Please Tell Me Who I Am: The Genius of Supertramp."

Now, let us imagine a world in which the gifts and talents of the child were nurtured. How beautiful would that be! This would put an end to the high number of individuals that work jobs they hate. This would also put an end to the high number of unskilled workers that we currently have in this country. It should come as no surprise that people are happy when they are allowed to follow their hearts and do what’s natural to them. Life is too short to waste your time doing something you do not like. That is not living; that is dying.

We are Extraordinary Spiritual Beings with a Soul Purpose.

Instead of following the crowd, why not follow your own Soul? It knows you better than the crowd of conformity which doesn't have your best interest at hand. Believe me, there is a much better way, my friend. Embrace the powerful words of Sting:

“Let your Soul be your pilot.”

Som Sabadell (We are Sabadell) Flashmob

The Idea for This Article

The inspiration for this article came from my friend Ashvina, commonly known around these parts as Feline Prophet. She posted a video that was made on the 130th anniversary of Banco Sabadell. The people of Sabadell wanted to honor their city. They showed their respect by performing one of Beethoven’s beautiful classical pieces in a Spanish plaza.

It was very beautiful to see the connection between the musicians and the audience. This is a perfect illustration of Unity Consciousness. As we are the individual notes and the symphony, we are also the musician and the audience.

We are each unique expressions of the Divine.

We are also One with the Divine.

We are the Light.

      Hi Your Cousins, it is very nice to meet a classical music lover. Music does have that amazing ability to transport a person to a level of inner peace and reflection. In addition, music can be very therapeutic. It is wonderful to hear that you also love life. Life is so much more interesting when you see life from the heart. Thank you very much for voting my hub up and awesome. :)

      suzettenaples, you're right. I shouldn't let that number concern me. My philosophy is to write meaningful articles from the heart. This is what really counts. I greatly appreciate your kind and insightful words. I wish you the best on HP as well.

      Terry27: just write-don't pay too much attention to the beginning score. It raises as Hubbers comment and the longer it is a hub. I suggest you always write what you feel and what is meaningful to you-if you do that, believe me you will have lots of readers . This hub is well done and well written. I wish you the best on HP!

      What a beautiful piece you have written here! Yes, we are the notes and God is the conductor! We must play our notes together in harmony. God's symphony is melodious and beautiful if we just would flow with the music. I love the metaphor you have created here. Thanks for sharing this with us! The world would be a much better place if everyone understood this.

      A symphony of life where every (human) note is unique and true to itself - the most beautiful music there is!!! Terry, this is one of the most inspiring articles I have read!! In this score there is a place for every living (and passed over) soul for each plays a part and each part is important to the whole. An incredible concept. My votes and best wishes to you, Terry and sharing your concept far and wide!!

      What a very beautiful analogy - comparing classical music to life. As I was reading this hub the thought came to me that I probably knew what had inspired it...and lo, I was right! :)

      Really enjoy reading your hubs, Terry...don't ever lose your enthusiasm for life!
