Inspiration Through Music

By

What is it that inspires you?  When there are roadblocks in your path what do you turn to in order to overcome them?  There are many things in this world we can turn to which inspire us on to greater things.  For some people it is the actions of great people of the past.  Others look at inspirational quotes or perhaps have a role model in life they look up to.  For me the strongest form of inspiration comes in the form of music.

Have you ever heard a piece of music that affected you so strongly it almost seemed to take you out of reality or triggered some deep emotion?  I know I have.    Often times before I work on something, need to make a decision, come up with an idea, or just think a situation through I find a place to be by myself and just listen to music.  The right music at the right time can bring clarity to the mind and push out all the extraneous thoughts of the day allowing you to focus on the matter at hand.  If you are having trouble with something in your life I encourage each of you to try just finding a quiet space, putting on some music, closing your eyes and just letting the emotion of the music flow over you while you think about what you need to do.

Now as I said before, the right music at the right time can bring clarity to the mind.  For some people bands like Slayer may work, but for me personally heavy death metal just isn’t what I’m looking for.  I have found through listening to tons of music that instrumental music seems to be the most effective for clearing your mind.  A friend recently introduced me to an artist known as Ed Alleyne Johnson.  He is world famous for playing the electric violin.  Below is a youtube video to one of his live performances.

As the 19th century French Poet Victor and Hugo put it, “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent.”  There are some problems to great and emotions to deep in each of our lives to be faced with nothing but silence or the incessant chatter of the modern world.  Music is the means with which we can face these problems, understand these emotions, and ultimately emerge better for it.

So I ask again, what is it that inspires you?  Are you willing to put aside the busy, noisy, and sometimes overwhelming modern world and take some time for yourself?  I challenge each of you to spend 15 minutes each day doing nothing but listening to music and see what effect it has on you.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the results.

What music have you heard that inspires you?  Feel free to post it in the comments below or send me an email at mat@trumanburger.com!
