      Yo Faithe,
      The sound of me typing causes certain musical sounds.
      My fingers hitting the keys are like playing an instrument.
      The result of these things doesn't really make me a musician,
      does it? And since everyone makes some noise or another, does
      that mean "EVERYONE" is playing music? If this analogy is
      to a tune you don't like, I can understand it. But letting
      your mind run wild and living totally in reaction to its
      fluctuations isn't meditative and is really what is "NOT
      natural". And I think there is no better thing that you can
      do for your Self and everyone than share those methods and
      concepts that have helped you evolve in consciousness. And
      those who do are offering something similar to what a music
      teacher is doing....making sweeter notes more often
      available and lessening the none harmonic tonalities of life.
      Peace and blessings,
