Lately I have been going through sort of a spiritual journey when it comes to my violin. I know I´ll never be a top professional musician but I´ll always have my violin by my side and play it. I do not need to be a professional to love music and everything it has to offer.
Because music is so much more.
Music about creating and exploring, it´s about creating a world out of nothing but thin air.
It´s about giving the word sound a whole new meaning and making it beautiful.
It´s about having an amazing spiritual experience every time you play and/or hear music.
It´s about reaching for the utmost and the highest.
It´s about watching the joy of little children when they play and discover that they can make music.
It´s about seeing people come alive when they hear a beautiful piece.
It´s about singing in the shower at the top of your voice.
It´s about singing along with your friends in fellowship.
It´s about coming together and making music.
It´s about meeting amaizng people and having amazing experiences along the way.
It´s about realizing that our world is beautiful
It´s about realizing that the most important things in life can not be seen but must be felt with the heart.
Music is so much more than we can ever imagine. But that is why I love music.
What a beautiful post! Thank you for sharing what is in your intimate heart.
That was really beautiful. I'm going to print it out and hang it up. I thought of a few more lines to add, and I'll ask my students to do the same if they want to. Here is what I would add:
It's about connecting with the Divine within and outside of yourself.
It's about connecting in a very direct way with other people, including people living and dead whom you've never met.
It's about discovering your own emotions and letting them sing.
I am really honored that you are going to print it out Pauline :) And I loved the sentences you added as well. Music is truly amazing.
