    I love music whether instrumentals or with lyrics but I listen to instrumental music more, honestly. I just like to be lost in the flow and rhythm. In the moment. When it comes to music anyway.

    I am but a dream--
    Your dream,
    A creature of your imagination...


    We're all Faery Tales; after a fashion,
    Our stories unfolding around us...
    and through us...



    In a moment you will have realized this,
    then you will banish me from your visions
    and I shall dissolve into the nothingness out of which you made me...

    Whether it be through lyrics or the sounds?

    Please share your "spiritual" music:

    I'll get started.
    Yes to finding a spiritual dimension in music. I listen to music and also play. Perhaps because I am an instrumentalist, I usually find more meaning in the music itself than the words. This comes through in instrumental pieces, obviously, but also songs written in other languages. I know people who won't listen to vocal music in languages they don't know, but there is so much in the music itself that they are missing.

    Some examples:

    A piece that has always spoken to me very directly and personally:


    One of my favorite singers:


    My favorite composer:


    My second favorite composer:


    Something more recent:
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I find these so surreal,
    Something I admire but afraid to appraoch,
    Because I know I'll get influenced and pehaps even lost.
    Imagine this is the best thing you've ever read.

    The only nonlyrical music that I genuinely appreciate as some kind of "yes, I know precisely what this is about", is Shosty's fifth symphony. And not in a spiritual manner, except for maybe Largo. There's things that are beautiful, but I wouldn't consider them spiritual either.

    Spirituality for me is much more concrete and has a conceptual component to it best expressed by words. Music is artificial; I define spirituality differently. You get a distinct feel of "spirituality" in gregorian chants and middle age music, but it is important to remmeber that these are fundamentally part of christendom and has nothing to do with any possibility of being transcendental; what they express si nothing but a yearning for the transcendental and a projection towards it. Feeling is only a partial aspect of spirituality; sometimes it goes beyond both feeling and logic, back towards the primordial state of being.

    So no, I guess I aleady have pre-defined notions of spirituality based on philosophical inquiries, and what I like best tend to be things that concretely express things as a concept. Take for instance: They set the mood and provide a path, serve as a reminder, etc.

    It's entirely possible and realistic to live your life in such a way that you don't accidentally rape people.
    I'd rather be a fool than be dismissive.

    I actually prefer instrumental music to songs with actual lyrics. I don't really associate spirituality with music but a some good music can help me feel less tired. I also like having music in the background while doing other activities so song lyrics actually distract more than aid. I usually always have something playing though these days, I've been getting more into classical music.
