The Tongue is the Pen of the Heart

Last week I got to spend time talking music and spirituality with a humble rabbi. We spoke about the nature of music in reaching higher levels of prayer and connecting to G-d. Playing music is one of the most direct ways to express gratitude. It is how I say thank you to the universe for all of its blessings. The universal language of music sends powerful vibrations. This is why we sing during prayer. The tongue is the pen of the heart.
