Listening ~ Hearing

It happened this evening. I was sitting in concert listening to a Haydn String Quartett when I felt the music changing everything around me, the sounds full of secrets and mystery. It was as if a door were opening into a white room and there was harmony and tranquility there and the feeling that everything I had ever hoped for had come true. And for a short moment I felt as if I were so much more than myself.

Ah, how wonderfully you've put it! I know just what you mean, but could never have said it so that another would say, "I know just what you mean!"

There is a sacristy room in us where all really is well, where the greatest hopes are indeed all true. Real music opens that door just as prayer of praise does.
