“Music touches the deepest part of man's being. Music reaches further than any other impression from the external world can reach. And the beauty of music is that it is both the source of creation and the means of absorbing it. By music was the world created, and by music it is withdrawn again into the source which has created it.” Hazrat Inayat Khan

"The erosion of the ego is the personal journey of life. The identification of the ego body as the seat of selfishness and greed comes through the love of others.

When I hold up my muse to the world it is only the ones who love me who give me the time and honest reflection of that who i am."
