To the Chief Musician - a Song

"Everything was created according to its own will"
(Rashi on Genesis 1:25, Hulin 60a, etc.)

The rocks, the trees, the grasses, even the cows, the lions, and the people were asked how they wanted to be created. Each thing we see is singing its song - not a song it was told to sing, but the song it asked to sing, the song it asks to sing. Each person we see is singing the song they ask to sing. Everything and every person is in a constant conversation with God, telling him how they want to be created, singing their song - a great symphony.
