I was in utter silence for so long… Hearing only sound of my lonely heart beating. But then you came into my life and my heart recognized that forgotten melody of love. Our hearts now beat as one. Our souls resonate with the Universe… Forever
Sometimes, while listening to music, feeling of seduction by the melody overwhelms you. It resonates so deeply within you, with your inner song, that is hard to keep still. It overtakes one’s mind, body and soul. Such an empowering feeling! It makes you feel you can do anything, even fly. I have almost uncontrollable urge to spread my arms, as if I have wings.
Music is such a powerful tool. It can guide us, in both good times and bad. When we are struggling with some problem, music can be the answer. It is all about finding what melody really suits you. But we are always changing, evolving and our musical taste grows and reshape with us.
I grew up in a house filled with music. My father was and still is a huge Beatles fan. ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon is like a hymn for me. When I was in elementary school, ‘Yesterday’ was one of the compositions we were studying about and I remember, we made our teacher play the song on the piano over and over again, during the entire class, for 45 minutes. And we sang like we practiced for ages. It is just one of those songs that has a universal touch of magic that resonated with all of us.
For me, there is nothing like a sound of a guitar. After our dinner, Dad would take his guitar and we would sit in our living room and listen to him play. And we sang together for hours. Music made us so close. What a loving memory.
One of the best things I remember of early teens was listening Backstreet Boys with my friends. Sharing all that music and love was truly magical. My whole room was covered with their posters and I knew everything about bend members as I could find out. It was crazy. But fun. And even now, when I’m not so passionate about their music, one song can make my heart smile.
Now, it doesn’t matter what music genre you are listening, as long as it makes you feel good and a better person. Diversity is fun!
And what is music, anyway? Does it require some kind of a musical instrument, or a human voice? Is it just strings of notes? Or the rustling of the leaves, ocean waves and bellowing of the wind is also music?
Personally, I believe music is everywhere around us. But, most importantly, within us. When we tune ourselves to our own frequency, find and understand that melody inside, then we can truly understand ourselves. Who we are, what are we striving for. We can open up to people and let the world embrace our music and our love.
