The primary agent in the affirmation of being alive in the universe is rhythm. The movement of the planets and stars, our breath and heartbeat, all these rely on pulsation for the propulsion of life. Nothing exists without rhythm. In my view the mastery of rhythm becomes the ultimate attainment in any creative situation, for creativity is the ultimate expression of being alive.
The harmony of living cannot be better achieved than through the resonance of rhythm. If we imagine that everything pulses – stillness and action, silence and sound, darkness and light – we will know that to become eloquent in the rhythm of self-expression is to embrace the symphonic scope of life’s vast creative possibilities.
