Creating Bhakti

The natural human condition is to create. From the minuscule, like a perfectly toasted marshmallow, to the extraordinary – the Great Pyramids. Regardless of your religion or inherited belief-system, there will always be music that moves you, epic stories of love, loss, God and the human condition. There are the perfectly curated moments, like a picnic with your soulmate during the evening sunset.
