Eddy includes in her Miscellaneous Writings what seems to me to be a companion piece to that passage, giving an explanation of the new growth and spiritual awakening that often follows particularly difficult life experiences.
From this encouragement to rejoin life in hope and faith, even if in a minor key at first, Eddy's prose points to the next lessons to follow - in friendship and kindness; in "higher joys, holier aims, a purer peace and diviner energy"; in renewed purpose, patience, humility; and in the discovery of hidden strength.
Today, let's celebrate the voices and indicators of the certain spring. Why not turn on your speakers, sit back and give yourself a nine-minute treat? Here is Johann Sebastian Strauss's "Voices of Spring" (Frühlingsstimmen) with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, as performed flawlessly by Kathleen Battle. Strauss composed the waltz in 1882, one year before Eddy first published her "Voices of Spring" essay. This performance makes "music in the heart" and won't leave you where it found you.
