A Quote by Kent Nerburn on orchestra, analogy of god, and spiritual paths

I sometimes like to think of God as a great symphony and the various spiritual paths as instruments in an orchestra.  The gift that you have is like music waiting to be played.  You need only to find the instrument that will best bring it out.  You alone can never play all the instruments, and your music might not find voice in all the instruments.  All you can do is find the instrument that suits you best, play it as well as you can, and add your music to the great symphony of divine creation.
