Let the rhythm move you. Let your mind and body be at one with the pulse. Hear the drummer strike the sky! Drink the movement of the air. Music is not just a pleasing collection of sounds. Music is vibration and vibrations are all around us and within us; creating, changing, moving the world every second of every day.
When you listen to a piece of music that you’ve never heard before that makes you feel good, do you ever wonder why it does so? It’s just an organization of sounds. Why should it make you feel good? The same goes for music that makes you feel bad. It doesn’t need lyrics in order to do so (although they sometimes help). Just the music can totally change your mood – or even your perspective on life.
It’s just an organization of sounds. Why should it make you feel any certain way?
I won’t go too much in-depth at this time, but there is a handful of good literature on the topic. I recommend Joachim-ernst Berendt’s The World Is Sound: Nada Brahma – Music and the Landscape of Consciousness as an intro or for a considerably heavier read, try Hazrat Inayat Kahn’s The Mysticism of Sound and Music.
Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for some great feeling music. Don’t forget to check out the Twitter feed for updates during the show. Send me a shout, if you’ve got the time!
