Music per se is meditative. You don’t need to binge on prozac or find any other outlet to calm down from inner turmoil when you have music that soothes your mind, heart, and inner spirit. There are times when there is so much inner noise, nothing can calm you down, except the pill of music that frails deep into the spirit and leaves you in a meditative state and bring you back to a state of mindfulness.
All of us need this, don’t we? the mindfulness that we consciously ignore, coz we are too caught up and get too absorbed dealing with whats on the brim of our lives, instead of letting good things seep inside. Then there is music, when we fail to have the strength to have a deeper knowledge of who we are. You do not need a master, or a teacher, or a guide, when you have the peace that comes from music, that sets your inner nous to wisdom that becomes auto didactic, it sets you on a auto-pilot to live in the present and seek nothing but things that you love to do, whatever they are.
Sometimes, I feel, things that we choose to ignore, like art, literature, philosophy, and music, only considering them mere pass times, must be included at every state of academics, because they instill invaluable inner knowledge, that we choose to look into after we retire from all the rigmarole.
When you pick a paintbrush or a simple HB pencil and start sketching anything at all, you no more feel the world around you. There is a world created around your thoughts, and gumption when you dwell into any kind of art, and that is what brings beauty into life.
I know music heals, and I can never underestimate what music does to the soul, even for those who are involved in the most hardcore pragmatic hoopla, music is your standstill. Because we need to what is aptly described in Tennyson’s Lotus Eaters poem. That is what music does to us, and we need to let it to us. We are not to forget the inner peace it brings to us, when there is nothing else. You don’t have to be a nirvana seeker to dwell into the depths of music, you just have to let your mind beckon to the deeper sweetness that lays in the bosoms of zen and flute music.
