Meaning in the Melody

I could cry at how beautiful some music is, simply indescribable. It always fills me with a strong sensation, one of power and raw connection. In fact, It's one of my best forms of meditation. When I find a song that speaks to me, it's like I become possessed. It literally surges through my body like I've been injected with some form of heroine, only a happy heroine; not the kind that leaves you toothless but leaves you entranced. As if, the melody was always searching for me and not the other way around. I consider these songs gifts. Gifts that are meant to be shared and opened. Haven't you always wondered why some songs appeal to you more than others? There is a message there. Its not always in the lyrics but in the feeling the song gives you. This is what I call listening without listening. Its when your spirit is listening and all the other noise that gets in the way is put on mute. Embrace these moments. Because when your spirit listens, life becomes easy, direction becomes clear and happiness becomes obvious.
Today, I was inspired by Eddie Vedder's song, 'The Long Road.' It impacted my mood so intensely that I actually had to sprawl on to the floor and let the song seduce me. It flushed my face with gratitude and created a light in me that only ever appears when I'm close to God. It was EXACTLY what I needed.
