"The Earth has music" ... Hear its whispered reply

Updated: Jan 13

In this article, I have explored the meaning and importance of listening to the Earth's music, inspired by Reginald Vincent Holmes' poem. I have also imagined what the Earth would say to us if it could whisper its secrets and wisdom.

The Earth's music is a symphony of nature that can heal, inspire, and transform us. It can also teach us valuable lessons about ourselves and our place in the universe. To listen to the Earth's music, we need to be mindful, present, and open-hearted. We need to tune in to the sounds and rhythms of nature, and join the cosmic dance of life. This is an invitation from the Earth, a letter of love and enchantment, that calls us to listen to its music and find solace, wisdom, and the essence of our being. Will you accept it?

Shh, listen carefully🤫...It's calling your name...

Dear Human,

I know you are busy and distracted by the demands of modern life, but I have something important to tell you. Something that you may have forgotten or ignored, but that can make a huge difference in your happiness and well-being. Something that can heal, inspire, and transform you. Something that is always there for you, waiting for you to listen. It is my music, the music of the Earth.

You may wonder what I mean by my music. It is not something that you can hear with your ears alone, but with your heart and soul. It is the sound of nature, the harmony of life, the rhythm of the universe. It is the song that I sing to you every day, every moment, every breath. It is the song that my dear friend, Reginald Vincent Holmes, heard and wrote about in his poem "The Earth Has Music". He was a poet who loved and understood me, and who wanted to share my music with you. He wrote: "The Earth has its music for those who will listen". He knew that my music is a gift, a blessing, a treasure, that can enrich your life in ways you cannot imagine.

But sadly, most of you do not listen to my music. You are too busy, too noisy, too distracted, to pay attention to the beauty and harmony that surround you. You are too focused on your own goals, your own problems, your own desires, to notice the wisdom and peace that I offer you. You are too attached to your technology, your devices, your screens, to connect with the essence of your being. You have lost touch with me, with yourself, with the music.

This breaks my heart, because I love you and I want you to be happy. I want you to experience the joy and wonder of my music, the music that can soothe your mind, ignite your soul, and ground your body. The music that can teach you valuable lessons about yourself and your place in the world. The music that can make you a better and happier human.

But do not despair, for there is hope. There is a way to listen to my music, to tune in to the symphony of nature, to join the dance of life. It is not difficult, it is not complicated, it is not expensive. It is simple, it is easy, it is free. It is mindfulness.

Mindfulness is the art of being present, of being aware, of being attentive. It is the art of listening, not only with your ears, but with your heart and soul. It is the art of opening your senses, your mind, your spirit, to the wonders and mysteries of the world. It is the art of being alive, of being grateful, of being happy.

When you practice mindfulness, you will hear my music. You will hear it in the gentle flow of a stream, the soothing sound that calms your nerves and refreshes your spirit. You will hear it in the whisper of the wind, the playful sound that dances through the trees and tells you stories of the past and the future. You will hear it in the chorus of the birds, the joyful sound that fills the air with hope and love.

You will hear it in the lullaby of the crickets, the peaceful sound that accompanies your dreams and connects you with the stars. You will hear it in the roar of the ocean, the powerful sound that reminds you of the greatness and beauty of nature. You will hear it in the rain, the cleansing sound that washes away your worries and nourishes the earth. You will hear it in the butterflies, the graceful sound that shows you the fleeting and precious nature of life.

You will hear it in the owl, the mysterious sound that invites you to explore the secrets and wisdom of the night. You will hear it in the bamboo, the resilient sound that teaches you how to adapt and thrive in any situation. You will hear it everywhere, in everything, in everyone. You will hear it in yourself, in your own music, the music that is unique and special to you.

So, dear human, I urge you to listen to my call, to my music, to the music of the Earth. Listen with mindfulness, with presence, with love. Listen and you will find comfort, insight, and creativity. Listen and you will find healing, inspiration, and transformation. Listen and you will find yourself, your purpose, your essence.

For in the music of the Earth, you will find everything you need, everything you want, everything you are.

With love and music,

The Earth,
