In response to Soulpancake

"How does music serve as a tool in your life - for healing or otherwise?"
(Continue the conversation here.)

Listening to music is modern and socially acceptable meditation.

When stuck in the mundane, whether it is driving to work, walking to class, or going for a jog, it has the ability to take us temporarily out of routine. It's sad to think, but there is much to the modern American life that could be done entirely involuntarily. However, I think that portable music players have really allowed people to take advantage of these situations, whether it is using that time genuinely listening to the notes being played or simply using the songs as a method of phasing out the rest of the world so we can focus a bit more and think.
