Music

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Music
“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.” ~ Angela Monet
And Deva Premal: “You can’t sing with a closed heart. You just can’t do it. And if you try, as soon as you start singing, your heart just naturally opens more and more.” The voice connects the inner and the outer worlds - it can explore and express, transcend and heal.
“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” ~ Aldous Huxley
I have found that beautiful music is a great aid to dissipating and releasing emotions that are not serving me, and encouraging a heart-felt high vibration (fulfillment and gratitude), the state of being that attracts abundance.
Music
“Music is the pathway to the heart.” ~ Voltaire
But talking about music doesn’t cut it, as Elvis Costello says: “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.” Hans Christian Andersen: “Where words fail, music speaks.” And George Carlin: “Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music.”
“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” ~ Billy Joel
And Berthold Auerbach: “Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday living.”
“A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be.” ~ Abraham Maslow
Equally, a teacher must teach, a leader must lead, a seeker must seek, a healer must heal, and so on... all the life purposes, general and specific, that each of us are uniquely drawn to. If we don’t, we’ll be frustrated, as if our life hasn’t really begun, trapped in the starting pen.

Some articles about music...

Whole Brain Thinking ~ by Owen Waters

Music naturally resonates with the right side of the mind. Did you ever sing along with a Golden Oldies song, one that you hadn't heard for years? Weren't you amazed at how many of the lyrics you remembered? How could you possibly roll out, from memory, line after line of lyrics that you hadn't heard in years? The answer lies in the right brain, where music is experienced and, also, memories are stored. Continues...

Music - a Superior Tool for Brain Development ~ by Esther Andrews

Music is an excellent tool to increase your child's intelligence and his audio memory and discrimination, while enriching his enjoyment in life. It gives you, the parent, the opportunity to enjoy this activity with your children and strengthen your bond and friendship with your child. Continues...

Mindfulness and Music: Things That Go "Hmmm" ~ by Maya Talisman Frost

The great news is that, no matter where we stand on the music smarts scale, we each have the capacity to increase our musical intelligence. Better yet, by focusing on selected sounds as triggers for mindfulness, we can sharpen our awareness and increase our enjoyment of the world around us at the same time. Continues...
