Your Music is Madness – Osho
(listen on SoundCloud)

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
– Aldous Huxley

The authentic music consists not of sounds, but of the gaps. Sounds come & go; those gaps remain. And music can make you aware of those gaps more beautifully than anything else.
– Osho

When we pay attention to nature’s music, we find that everything on the Earth contributes to its harmony.
– Hazrat Inayat Khan

There are two aspects of individual harmony: the harmony between body and soul, and the harmony between individuals. All the tragedy in the world, in the individual and in the multitude, comes from lack of harmony. And harmony is the best given by producing harmony in one’s own life.
– Hazrat Inayat Khan

For years, they were telling me to play commercial, be commercial. I’m not commercial. I say, play your own way. You play what you want, and let the public pick up on what you were doing, even if it takes 15, 20 years.
– Thelonious Monk

Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.
– Charles Mingus

Music at its best, cradles your inner silence, and holds it gently in front of you. It is the magic carpet ride to your soul.
