Many spiritual seekers find communion with Source in nature. No wonder - nature evokes wonder and awe, gratitude and satisfaction. Its beauty is a feast for the senses. Nature reminds you of how small you are and, at the same time, how vast the interconnection is among all of life.
Music also evokes spiritual awakenings. Music speaks to your heart and soul, invites you to sing or dance, creates a whole body awareness of the beauty of the human experience.
Enjoying music outdoors in nature is a special treat for the senses, the heart and the soul. Some of my most sacred moments have been at outdoor concerts during the summertime. Lying on a blanket, looking up at the night sky, surrounded by the sounds of summer and music - that’s heaven on earth for me.
Why not combine nature and music this 4th of July weekend? Here in North Texas, you can at the Fort Worth Symphony’s Concerts in the Garden, at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. The symphony plays a patriotic concert tonight and tomorrow night, July 3 and 4th. On Sunday night, you can hear Tchaikovsky’s explosive 1812 Overture and one of the Cliburn Piano Competition finalists performing Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3.
