Music is for the soul
Now, this doesn’t apply to stuff trying to pass itself off as music. Like that heavy beat stuff played inside vehicles and rattles the windows of other vehicles and houses on the street. And that screaming stuff that sounds like spoiled brats throwing temper tantrums. No, only real music is for the soul.
And I’m not trying to be the dictator of which music is for the soul.
So don’t worry. If you prefer to crank up your sound system and blast your ears with junk, go for it. But it’s not good for your ears, or for building relationships, or for your soul. And if none of that matters to you, then so be it.
But if you wanna take your life up a notch (or ten), consider stepping outside your little ear-blasting box. Because there’s a whole ‘nother world of magnificent melodies out there. And love-filled lyrics to ease your troubled heart and mind. And whether you believe it or not, it’s crucial to ease your troubled heart and mind.
Because when you choose, instead, to feed your anger, bitterness, and frustration, it will grow like a toxic weed inside your core. And it’ll take you down to the lowest depths of life. And it can even take you to hell.
By the way…hell is not gonna be pleasant. And that’s putting it mildly. Plus, you won’t get to crank your speakers to drown out your misery. And you won’t get to put together a protest with all the other “cool people.” And you’ll discover that being “fired up” takes on a whole new meaning there.
But right now, YOU get to choose.
And you might believe music choice doesn’t matter when it comes to important life decisions. But when it helps keep your heart, mind, and soul in a dark place, it can have eternal consequences. But so what. Right?
Tune in the music and tune out the noise.
Real music builds up. The fake stuff annoys
Not only others, but your heart as well.
Tune in the music, and stay out of hell.
