As the sun rose behind me, I put Leona Lewis’ song, I See You on repeat and drove westward through the marshy area that lies between Melbourne and St. Cloud.
Cows were already grazing in the wet fields as patches of fog hung amidst the dark trees. Snowy white egrets waded in ponds while ospreys soared overhead, scanning the waters below.
It was peaceful and beautiful and I felt so connected and one with everything.
I kept the song repeating over and over (I offer myself as a sacrifice; I see through you and you through me; …) as I drove onward through the congestion of Kissimmee and into the outskirts of Orlando.
It is so easy to get caught up in the hectic pace of the city. It’s so easy for the mind to be distracted from its focus on the Divine—by the turmoil of the modern world.
Can you see the stillness and the beauty at the center of the Chaos?
[Turning to the Fourth Wall]
To those of you on the spiritual path, I recommend finding a favorite song that resonates with you—a song that exemplifies your spiritual ideals—and load it on your phone and listen to it when you catch your mind getting too caught up in the world—too distracted by the Chaos.
Contrary to what it may seem, plugging in the headphones and listening to music in this manner is not an escape from the world—it’s an escape from the mind.
