The Melody of Love

Sound is the starting point, everything emerged after the sound KUN (be) the big bang and everything would rewind on destined day on a sound, SOOR(a trumpet-just like a retreating bugle in an army rank)

The sound that comes from reed flute is the song of separation of reed from reed fields (a metaphor from Rumi ) but it is also a remembrance that sound was the mother from which everything was created. We find that everything in nature whatever classification of life that thing belongs to human, animals, vegetation, minerals, gases, asteroids, planets, galaxies, atom, protoplasm... all have Longing for that sound which started and germinated everything..

When a new day dawns, what we hear first is a melody of love hummed and chanted by birds, reminding us that we humans are not lone participants in this symphony of love. The chattering and singing of birds create waves of electromagnetic field that makes the atmospheric conditions tantalizing with an aura that becomes engulfed with a deep cheerfulness oozing love. This makes me wonder how music, rhythm and sound foster Love.

Everything in nature is singing and humming just see an elegant and proud peacock that rambles in thick woods carrying the long tail that fans into a beautiful and glorious plumage decorated with texture, color and design and then this beautiful creature dances and screams Miaow... Miaow... while looking towards heavens. The sound of Miaow vibrates, resonates and travels backward in time tracing the echoes of the sound that initiated causation, KUN (be) the big bang. Upon reaching that beginning sound the peacock’s scream optimizes then returns, disperses and spreads in the infinite pathways of all omniety, universe, and cosmos enchanting everything everywhere back to the woods where this peacock screamed Miaow, and where in an approachable distance a peahen listens and gets excited.

Bill Chaplin an asteroseismologist at Birmingham University explains that "Essentially stars resonate like a huge instrument". This new research comes just few months after scientists at Sheffield University recorded that eerie musical harmonies emitted from surface of Sun, what a wonder!

Everything in nature is connected with everything and everything is longing and is desirous of others, this desire is deep rooted in our creation from the sound of KUN, this sound is a binding force that gels us together in the march of Life.

Magic of Love

...And We created every living thing from water (Al Quran 21:30)

Everything starts as one and live as one big organism. When in a night of Full Moon, this majestic, elegant, beautiful and mysterious ornamentation, the Queen of night shines and dazzles in its sublime glory and casts a magic spell, it uplifts me emotionally, aesthetically and I feel a delight, a joy, a romance surging in my veins and at the same time somewhere, the tides in the heart of a deep sea roll, roar, dance, rise, climb, ascent and splash against the limiting shores, people say it is the gravitational pull, I say it is LOVE.

It is magic, joy and exuberance of LOVE that has engrossed us, converged us together like an organism, a body, a constellation and a galaxy, that belongs to one origin, owe a common genesis, and is choreographing its way in an eternal ballet of life, that gleams, resonates, and vibrates with light ,music and movements that radiates with a magic called LOVE.

The Ecology of Love

When I take out a slice of bread from the toaster and spread some honey on it and take a small morsel and get the sweetness and delight from each bite, the sweetness is not because honey is sweet but because love is sweet, LOVE that hundreds of people have put into that morsel.

Without exaggeration, the fact is, that each morsel that I take is possible because many hundreds of people have put their, effort and love into that, from sowing to wheat fields and barns and from barns to flour mills and from flour mills to bakers , then packaging, marketing and retail outlets, all these processes where man and manmade machines are involved, aided by all natural phenomenon like, soil, air, water and sunlight this one small bite is a miracle of LOVE that binds all humanity together.

This one small bite makes us, the humanity and the creation of God including all life forms so much closer and interdependent that it is impossible to live in an isolated and selfish world, the only natural choice is to harness selfless LOVE.
