The peace of Pater Noster

Theists and atheists share the commonness of belief - in God or against God. Both schools are sacred in the sense that they are committed to their thought.

It is out of such commitment that you produce good music, art and science. And as children of a certain togetherness, you are obliged to partake such hallowed creations. This is how civilisations may be built.

Pater Noster is the Lord's Prayer; a christian prayer taught by Jesus to his disciples. The rendition below gave me
immense peace while working on a project, and reminded me to make efforts to make holy any creation.

Alternative audio only link:
I learned later about the words, the context of the prayer. What may have appealed to my soul is an assured dedication that emanates from any project of passion. Be it a child religiously building blocks from toys, or a swimmer concentrating on her movement; a certain peace from any labour of love appeals to the soul.

It is this peace, this dedication and labour of classical musicians that makes us grateful for life, and encourages us to persist.

"Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul." - Johann Sebastian Bach
