Inspiring Soundtrack: Audiomachine – The Fire Within – Tree of Life

The words resonated. The thoughts painted pictures of hope, of wonder, of love, in her mind, her heart, her soul.

The revelation of the moment, grew within and without. The Tree of Life spread forth the message. Intertwined with her, the branches, the blossoms spoke of the moment beyond the pain. The sadness she had felt soothed by the knowledge that beyond the anguish, was a new beginning that was born from the heavens of a starry night.

The Tree of Life spoke of the fire within. The flickering flame. A beacon of rejoicing that when the sun doth rose, the world would understand that we shall dance together in an all different, all equal, wondrous diversity. Her pain eased. The gift of a new life, spoken through the music of rustling leaves on the Tree of Life.

    • Hi Mary,

      And it was wonderful to interact with you on Twitter. Your wonderful articulation, dear lady, brings forth a dance of inspiring emotions. I’m profoundly grateful for your comment. Thank you, Mary.

      A lovely weekend to you 🙂


  1. Really profound! Love the reflective tone…
    ‘… dance together in an all different, all equal, wondrous diversity…’ makes me think of the concept ‘unity in diversity’ where we learn to look beyond what we actually see… differences can be celebrated, each individual be regarded as unique and special…


  2. Why Gary, that was positively inspiring! Though now I wonder how I can take my upcoming segment in a goofy direction (as we all know I’ll be inclined to do). I was counting on you to break that ice for me. 😉


  3. You’ve done a masterful job of weaving the name of your piece, The Tree of Life and deeply rooted hop and inspiration into a fragment of wonderful reading.

    I tip my hat to you, Gary 🙂
