Prayer is listening, resonating, participating in the fulness of God and creation.
In this TED talk, percussionist Evelyn Glennie explores music as more than mere notes on a page. Rather, as an expression of the human experience. Playing with sensitivity and nuance informed by a soul-deep understanding of and connection to music, she talks about a music that is more than sound waves perceived by the human ear.
I wonder in what way(s) prayer is the resonance of sound, the sensation of something deep, even eternal…a participation in the eternal song of the Trinity.
If the Eternal Word was made flesh, that is, a human being in what way are we human beings invited to participate in the Word of Eternity, the deep music of the cosmos?
In what ways are our very bodies, offered in prayer, a “resonating chamber” for the deep music of God as Trinity and of the angels, saints, and drumming of the creation?
