Reality is not just what is explicitly visible, what statisticians measure, tabulate and quantify. That is merely surface reality. Beneath it lies the deeper reality which reveals itself when the mind is without any armour, when the heart opens up, and when reason becomes free from all sorts of cunningness and instrumentality. Only then does music touch us, and take us to the depths of our existence.? The book is full of revelations?an intimate engagement with the freshness of the morning and the depth of the dark silent night.
