Silent space

It is important in music to not only play the right notes but also to know when to be silent; to allow space for meaning to grow from the silence. Sound needs to be juxtaposed with the gaps between each note.

In contrast, the sound of negativity can be an incessant, continuous, single musical note that drowns out the meaning of everyday life.

Break the negative sound by allowing silence to flood in and clear away the debris of toxic negativity. Only in such a neutral space can the positive find meaning. Without neutrality as a stepping stone, negative corrodes the positive and your emotions become a battleground. Disengage from the music of negativity and inhabit the silent truce to allow positive music to extenuate the meaning of everyday life.
