Oliver Holmes - Alas for those that never sing

I just found out Wayne Dyer said "Don't die with your music still inside of you." (Thanks to Brittany's blog The Song of Purple Summer) I also found out that Oliver Holmes said the following almost a century before Wayne: "Alas for those that never sing, but die with all their music in them." - Oliver Wendell Holmes. And even before them, Guru Nanak said, "I am only alive in the moments that I sing."

When I say "The purpose of life is to sing," people usually look at me strange, and say, "Shiv, but I dont know how to sing." If you don't know how to sing and haven't discovered your inner music, you are in trouble. Learn from one of the angels on this blog. They all sing. The music that we are born with is waiting within us to come out. You will hear this music in what they write, how they think, and what they do. Come, learn with me from them. Sing with me and them. And this world will be the harmonious place of our dreams.
