Excerpt from: Osho, The Voice of Silence, Chapter 11
"There is a natural music, a hidden source of treasure in every human heart. It may be covered, it may be concealed, it may appear to be silent – but nevertheless, it is there.
"Listen to the song of life. The first condition for listening is that you begin by listening for it in your heart. Without this, the outer music will not be heard. You listen to the outer music and perhaps you may even think that you understand it; you may sway your heads with joy, in bliss and affirmation. But if you have never heard the inner music, then all this will be just superficial and you will never really be able to enter into the world of music.
"Music is spiritual. Until you have experienced the melody of your heart, until each and every breath is in a musical rhythm, until the very throbbing of your life has become a harp, until you can hear the melody of life which needs no creating but is already happening within you, which you already areuntil you have heard it, you will never be able to recognize the eternal melody which goes on echoing in the very fabric of the universe. But once you have heard the melody of your heart, you will find it all around you; in the murmuring of the waterfall, in the wind passing through the leaves of the trees, in the falling of a stone, in the flowing of a river, in the silence, the stillness of the night, in the sound of the crickets. Everywhere you will start hearing the reverberations of your heart. This whole world will become a song for you." Osho
