2/27/12 – Music is a moral law


“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything; It is the essence of order and lends to all that is good, just, and beautiful.” – Plato

There are a lot of quotes about music that I just love, but this one by Plato is probably the most eloquently written in my eyes. I love music, every thing about it. It’s amazing the emotion it can pull out of you and how it can turn the worst of times into moments of peace and reflection. There are certain songs that help to me calm me, that I tend to have on during simple meditation.  They help to wind me down after those long, busy days. I have linked them all below and here is what they are: “The Long Day is Over”-Norah Jones, “Let it Be”-The Beatles (sung by Jennifer Hudson), “Believe”-Brooks & Dunn, “Shine the Light”-Sugarland, “I Won’t Let Go”-Rascal Flatts. I could link songs for days on here but these 5 just came to mind when I was typing.

Music is there for you when others can’t be or when you just want to be alone, yet be hugged and kept warm by something bigger than a physical person. If I could thank you, I would, music haha, as funny as that sounds, but all the gratitude in the world wouldn’t be enough for all that you do for me. Enjoy!
