original NATURE

“There exists in the East a legend which relates that God made a statue of clay in His own image, and asked the soul to enter into it. But the soul refused to enter into this prison, for its nature is to fly about freely, and not be limited or be bound to any sort of captivity. The soul did not wish in the least to enter this prison. Then God asked the angels to play their music and, as the angels played, the soul was moved to ecstasy. Through that ecstasy - in order to make this music more clear to itself - it entered this body.” - From “The Mysticism of Sound and Music” by Hazrat Inayat Khan
