No doubt you have heard many times of the power of music. How it can stimulate emotions, create peace, happiness, transport us back in time, confirm the breaking of one’s heart, give us hope for a future, lie to us, bring us back to life. It can be a solitary experience, a family understanding and a time of going crazy with our friends and dancing like no one is watching.
Here are some amazing quotes regarding the power of music:
“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy. Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.” ~ Ludwig van Beethoven ~
“Music does bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit.No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics or the expression of our love and our faith, music proves: We are the same.”~ John Denver ~
“A person does not hear sound only through the ears; he hears sound through every pore of his body. It permeates the entire being, and according to its particular influence either slows or quickens the rhythm of the blood circulation;it either wakens or soothes the nervous system. It arouses a person to greater passions or it calms him by bringing him peace. According to the sound and its influence a certain effect is produced. Sound becomes visible in the form of radiance. This shows that the same energy which goes into the form of sound before being visible is absorbed by the physical body. In that way the physical body recuperates and becomes charged with new magnetism.” ~ from ‘Mysticism of Sound’ by HazratInayat Khan ~
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” ~ Plato ~
