In September, I began university, a place of broadening one’s mind where everyone assumes that you realize the flaws in the structures of society, which could be true but I found it closed certain gaps for me. People tell me that they lose their own beliefs. I began to understand my own spirituality through music and through a broadening of my own experiences in university. I started to learn about George Harrison and how he felt all of his music as if it were surrounding him in his own being and every fibre of his life. This is what I have discovered.
Music for me is in every fibre of my self. I can feel it down into my soul and when I don’t have it in my life, I always feel like I’m missing something essential like food or water. For me, the music in my life has brought me to the point where I recognize that I have a kind of spirituality in my life. I believe that music comes from everywhere; it comes from every aspect of my life and inspires me to continue pursuing it so that someday this spirituality will transfer to another aspiring musician and they can have this feeling of completion.
Understand yourself and you’ll find the spirituality, no matter what it is, that you believe. I’m not just talking about religions. I mean believing in something that you cannot explain. I mean that feeling of knowing when you find your own passion, the thing that plagues your mind 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You don’t know how you know, but you just feel it in every fibre of your body and your mind. Find peace and find spirituality and your own passions.
Now, go listen to some Bach and appease your inner band geek.
