What is your worldly view? 

Is the sin of being too real your sinew?

Alternative rock rings the bell of your soul?

You are so undone, 

Originality is the religion you dole?

Show your flaws without fear…

Is your inner self, you wish to hear?

Are you too solemn to want to be pretty? Seeking your higher self through the no-nonsense, no-bullshit persona within the music and lyrics of Alternative rock and sub-rock genres. Is your nirvana searching for a deeper meaning? Willing to swim across the tides of tricksters, beguilers, and dissemblers? Evolving from the poltergeist chains of grunge rock as a stereotypical teen to sublime emotions of the classic rock ballads. A musical genre, a lifeline your heart beats to, living under its belly vicariously, to germinate into an eternal free spirit.

As depressed as Kurt Cobian relating to Nirvana, backstroking through identity crisis as a teen and taking penance in rebel of Linkin Park, mellowness of Bryan Adams, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, through the discography of Lynard Sknyard, Pearl Jam, and the list goes on.

When Pink Floyd overthrows conventional education, The Beatles pave a way for eternity exploring thoughts and emotions, Def Leppard singing a motley of meaningful things in life we experience. There is always more to love than sweetness and beautiful feelings. Love is the toughest thing to deal with when its real, coz love lets you discover your inner daemons and gives you strength to fight them off, because you want to love to the highest purity, breaking away all the flakiness.

Unbound to the ways of the world, living by your imperfections, flaws, gumption, learning and unlearning, Alternative rock is a wide spectrum of thoughts and emotions in poetry and lyrics with upbeat music score that ignites the realm within you. Discover yourself over and again in the musical fete of rock genres with a bang that screams to say anything but unreal.

For those who dare to wear vulnerabilities on their sleeve, and get up and go with a vastness in your soul, because you know that being unbound is your journey through different dimensions. Beyond the veil of superstitions, false faith, conditioned notions, lays a realm, the penultimate opening up your inner self destroying misleading ideologies, coz everything in life is too real to experience and keep evolving.

 

Zen and Flute Music for Meditation

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.

Enjoy this piece in celtic flute..flute is always peaceful in all cultures across the globe and because flute is universal..no match for that sound…and the harmony it creates…
