Everything is music

We are part of something greater, so we don’t have to work so hard to make things happen. Even if one part of life breaks, the ‘hidden instruments’ keep playing unimpeded:

Don’t worry about saving these songs!
And if one of our instruments breaks,
it doesn’t matter.

We have fallen into the place
where everything is music.

.even if the whole world’s harp
should burn up, there will still be
hidden instruments playing.

They derive
from a slow and powerful root
that we can’t see.

Rumi, Where Everything Is Music [extract]
