Deep within us all there is an echo that reverberates calling back to our origin. It is an ancient call, a call that has been repeated throughout time so as we would not forget. Lost in the illusion of this material world, caught up in the race to the imaginary top, and fooled into thinking that we are the masters of what we see, that call still cuts through. Still heard today by some, we turn back to our origin and reply to it with unconditional surrender. Listen and you might hear it. Reply and follow its melodic sound that you may find your way home.
