In this podcast, Guy Finley talks about what it would mean for us to let real life sound its essential notes within us without the unnecessary dissonance of our resistance.

Talk notes: Why do we like music? We like music because it stirs something inside of us. This means that, in the sounding of the music, it brings by its very existence a request to the ears that hear it. What is the request that music makes? The request is for a response, and we cannot separate our response to the music from the change that takes place within us as we respond.

The reason that we love music is because, through its “touch”, we are consenting to be changed. The sound acts upon us in order to produce a pleasurable response, and for the love of that “sound” we are transformed for the moment. Similarly, life itself is request, response, and change. However, there is something that lives within us that, while it agrees to be changed by pleasant music, rejects anything that is stirred within us that it doesn’t consider to be a pleasurable sensation.

Usually all we do is measure everything that takes place according to our personal demands. But if we can enter into a broader relationship with life for a moment, we can see that while something might happen to us that we would not prefer, that event may be exactly what someone else needs to have happen in order to learn about this process of request, response, and change.

What if, instead of rejecting moments that we do not like, we met them with the same open heart as we do the music that we love? What would happen to us? We would start to see that there is no sound that plays in us that is not part of a broader plan. It is this Divine sound that ultimately can perfect us if we would just let the music play.
