I love the violin. In fact, I played it for a while as a child, viola too. Sadly, I switched schools and did not keep up with it. This beautiful instrument can teach us so much, if we let it.
Like it, when we are fine tuned, truly our deepest selves, we produce beautiful and harmonious sounds. Whether classically or fiddlin' , the music flows and touches others. In order for it to continue being its best, the violin needs tuning constantly.
Did you know that if you hold a violin with its base on your knee, the front of the instrument facing out, and someone sits directly in front of you holding another violin likewise, strings toward you, and then one of you plucks a string, the corresponding string on the instrument facing will vibrate along with it? If we keep ourselves in tune love finds resonance within the other, and brings it forth.
It may not be in perfect pitch, perhaps, but it's a start. Let us each let go and let God bring us into resonance so that love and peace may make glorious music, eternally.
