“Every person, every soul must know that there is no other voice like his. And if that particularity of its own voice, which each soul has, is lost, then nothing is left with it.
Besides this, every person is an instrument in this orchestra which is the whole universe, and his voice is the music that comes from each instrument. Each instrument is made distinct and particular and peculiar, so that no other voice can take the place of that particular voice.”
~from The Mysticism of Sound and Music: The Sufi teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan
