Today I would like to share with you an essay written by my friend John Walters called Nada Brahma. Nada Brahma means “Music is God”.
John and I used to work together. When we met, he was around 21 or 22, yet he had the wisdom and intelligence of someone who is 50. He’s just a little bit older now and he still amazes me with his wit and intellect. John is truly wise beyond his years.
He shared with me an essay he wrote on spirituality. It inspired me so much that I emailed it to several friends. Today I would like to share it with you.
It is spiritual in nature, in an all-inclusive way. Yoga also is a spirituality that is welcoming to all religions and spiritualities. It was born in one of the most diverse areas of the world, India, where many dialects are spoken and religions are practiced.
The gist of John’s essay is that it does not matter what religion you practice, or if you practice none at all. What matters is that you love people with all of your heart, and that you treat people well. This is also the path of the yogi
I hope you enjoy John’s essay as much as I did. It is lengthy, but it is worth your time to read. Please feel free to visit John’s blog to read Nada Brahma.
