Our Favorite Music of Spiritual Nature
« on: November 16, 2012, 07:40:07 am »

For me, Music is a spiritual experience. The fullest range of human emotion and spiritual expression is achieved in music.

This flute music for example:

Good music can result in the deep introspection needed to purify ourselves from the impurities caused by the stresses of the modern day.

A cheerful Chinese folk tune:

Songs about life and family help us remember what is important, while instrumentals allow our minds to wander.

A song about Life:

A song about giving life your all:

What are some songs you love that help you?

Is there any music that is NOT of a spiritual nature.

I live in an intentional community. One of the things we do together is eat, nine meals a week. We each give three hours a week to cooking or cleaning up after meals. Many of us like to play music while doing that. A few years back, somebody proposed that only "spiritual" music be allowed in the kitchen and scullery. I asked him who got to decide which music was "spiritual"? He dropped the idea.

^^^This!  Before Steve Martin decided they were "his" band.  I used to see them on a pretty regular basis before they blew up.  Outstanding musicians all 'round.

Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are."
