What Is Music?
What is music?
Why do we need music?
Why do our bodies move with the rhythm without us noticing?
How can music affect our feelings so easily? Makes us sad or happy!!
How can music take us to different places in the past and sometimes in the future?
So........................................ What is music?
For me, music is a protector! Music was the only power I was able to use against the harsh and ugly sounds I used to hear on a daily basis! Every time I was in a situation where I was surrounded by negative powers that could consume me and absorb all the good powers I have, music was my protector. It used to take me away, cover my eyes and ears gently and help me to focus on what really matters.
Music is a motivator. It gives me the strength I need to accomplish whatever I want. It pushes me to be better and do more. It was and it still is with me in every accomplishment in my life. Big or small, music is a huge part of it.
Music is a time machine. It always takes me to where I want to be. If I want to re-live some of my great memories, it will take me to the past and remind me of all the beautiful memories. If I want to go to the future and see what I’m able to do, music will take me there and give me hope!
Music is a story. A story of love, hope, courage, acceptance or change.
Music can be the beautiful sounds that come from the instruments & vocalists and it can be more than that as well. It's everything around me! It's the sound of everybody I love, the sound of the beach, the sound of birds flying freely, the sound of leaves when they dance with the wind, the sound of the rain when it knocks on my window to have a talk, the sound of our heart beats and the sound of every single thing around me.
Music is not one thing, it's not in one place. It's everywhere. It's in every sound I hear. It is one of the main things in life that makes me truly happy.
However, there's still one question that I need to answer. What's the connection between our bodies and the music we hear? Is it the beat of the music? Trying to match our heart beats? Or maybe have a conversation!
I always feel that my heart beats have a connection with what they hear! The music inside my body is talking to the music outside of it! Well, even if that is incorrect and unbelievable I choose to believe it!
So maybe after all, life is simply music, but it's up to us to pay attention to it! To listen carefully to its beauty. To find it!!
Lastly, I'll leave you with the most beautiful song I ever heard.
