I’m not sure what the scales of Peace are… or the beats or the (enter sports analogy)…
But I know we need to practice them. It’s what will make Peace sing.
It’s important when you want do great things to have the basics at your fingertips.
Years of hours practicing scales means your fingers automatically know where to go. It means when the Peace process bogs down you have other notes to offer, other harmonies to try. What about this note, or this? The movements are instinctive.
Music is hard. Peace is hard. We need to practice and get good at it. Music practice, spiritual practice, Peace practice. Beautiful music changes the world. Peace changes the world. The practice is worth the time.
And oh, by the way, I think Beautiful Music can be a road to Peace — one we don’t talk often enough.
