Here is some "real" music in my estimation...
Fear and love are contradictory terms. Love is reckless in giving
away, oblivious as to what it gets in return. Love wrestles with the
world as with itself and ultimately gains a mastery over all other
feelings. My daily experience, as of those who are working with me, is
that every problem would lend itself to solution if we are determined
to make the law of truth and non-violence the law of life. For truth
and non-violence, are to me, faces of the same coin.
Whether mankind will consciously follow the law of love I do not
know. But that need not perturb us. The law will work, just as the law
of gravitation will work whether we accept it or no. And just as a
scientist will work wonders out of various applications of the laws of
nature, even so a man who applies the law of love with scientific
precision can work greater wonders. For the force of non-violence is
infinitely more wonderful and subtle than the forces of nature, like
for instance electricity. The man who discovered for us the law of
love was a far greater scientist than any of our modern scientists.
Only our explorations have not gone far enough and so it is not
possible for every one to see all its workings.... The more I work at
this law the more I feel the delight in life, the delight in the
scheme of this universe. It gives me a peace and a meaning of the
mysteries of nature that I have no power to describe.
