Sohbet of the Week (42 - 21)

Music in the Life of Hazrat Inayat Khan - 1

'What is wonderful about music is that it helps us human beings to concentrate or meditate independently of thought; and therefore music seems to be the bridge over the gulf between form and the formless.

If there is anything intelligent, effective, and at the same time formless, it is music. Poetry suggests form, line and colour suggest form, but music suggests no form.

It creates also that resonance which vibrates through the whole being lifting the thought above the denseness of matter; it almost turns matter into spirit, into its original condition, through the harmony of vibrations, touching every atom of our whole being’.
