When I think about a revelation, I think of a big, salacious announcement, Armageddon or a major personal break through. The definition of revelation can vary across people. Some may find new details of Taylor Swift’s love life to revelatory, while others could not careless. Many of us our looking for revelations in our own lives; the meaning of life, our purpose, or our path.
In looking for our revelations, we often look for big signs. As if there will be a billboard pointing out our path and purpose with an easy to follow map. That would be awesome, but it doesn’t exist. In our everyday lives, there are often revelations that we overlook. It is these small revelations that overtime add up into wisdom if heeded.
Music makes the world go round. If it has a good beat, good rhythm and I can dance to it, I am a happy camper. Music is a universal language. If it has no words or is in a foreign language is a matter of little consequence. Music is revelatory. When we here a song, it can transport us to a meaningful moment in our lives. Every time I hear the Beatles, “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away,” I am transported back to the tram in Germany travelling down the rainy hill from Neuschwanstein Castle to our where our tour bus was parked. We all have songs that transport us back to magical moments in our lives or songs that carried us through the difficult times. Which song is your favorite?
