New Life #359 – The Effect Of Music On People

New Life #359 – The Effect Of Music On People
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Music is a universal language that directly strums the strings of our emotions. What makes it affect us so strongly and how does it create the feeling of harmony, elation, and connection between us?


Music is a language that expresses our innermost feelings,; it can change our mood.

Music immediately reminds a person of something and arouses certain feelings as if it skips the mind. Music is an emotional language. It is different from ordinary language that requires understanding, a mind, memory and the ability to compare.

When I hear sounds, my feelings begin to operate to the rhythm of the sounds, they control me. We have an understanding and feeling. Our sight operates on understanding; our hearing operates on feelings,

In order to hear better we sometimes close our eyes so that our sight will not interfere with our attempt to focus on the music. Hearing belongs to our insight.

The sounds that we perceive give me a sense of harmony and balance. I enjoy the wholeness of the sounds.

There is something in musical harmony that is similar to the upper wholeness in nature. This is the reason that music elates us. There is nothing threatening in music and it brings quiet joy, tears, and something that is very internal, personal, and deep.

All of nature plays music and music can heal.
