    As a musician I think one of the extraordinary gifts we humans have created for ourselves is music. We derive a great deal of our identity from something that has no physical reality. Music is like a vast projection onto space itself and yet it creates and reflectsa moral (intentional) reality unique to each differing culture.
    To me it's no mere coincidence that the greatest music of the just about every faith tradition has been written in praise of the creator spirit; for it has always been that when we align ourselves with the wordless reality music expresses we can reach a state of transcendencethat is akin to spiritual ecstasy.
