Share one of your favorite spiritual pieces of music

24 posts in this topic

To me, a certain kind of music opens you to a mystical experience. For me, it is piano music. As I have been introduced to spirituality and glimpses of the self and reality that I have had, I started to appreciate music even more. Over a year ago I would have a little bit of mystical experience on it. Now, When I listen, I become one with it and enjoy it totally. But my bias is that it has to be made in a certain way and have a certain type.

I would like you to share one of your favorite spiritual pieces of music as I share mine.

For me it's most of Jack Chudnow's music that he made for Vsauce.

And Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum -- simply because I faced a psychedelic ego-death while that song was playing. Etched a conditioned response in me.

There was always something about songs without lyrics for me that resonated deeply... Feeling beauty. Recognizing yourself.

Yeah, it is just feeling and without any language to understand.

Strangely the deeper I go into spirituality the more "escaping with music" is escaping back into egoistic frames of mind. I can coax such an emotional state that I can burst into tears listening to anything these days xD. I'm listening to less mantras / classical music / stereotypically "good music" and more pop; Ariana Grande, Fickle Friends, etc lol xD

@Loving Radiance Great shout, I find 'On The Nature of Daylight' almost unbearably beautiful (it also features in one of my all-time favourite films, 'Arrival', to heart-breaking effect). 

I think I'd have to go for one of Pink Floyd's songs, there's just something about David Gilmour's guitar-playing that speaks to my soul:

@RickyFitts  Indeed, I got to know it through Arrival. The beginning was just hitting perfect with that song. It is one of my favorite movies.

It really did, just a perfect choice of music :x Dang, I want to watch 'Arrival' again now...

Speaking of pieces of music that go perfectly with a scene from a film, I always loved this, from 'Lost In Translation' (which also happens to be one of my all-time favourite movies):
