Human beings are essentially spiritual. When the spirit life is ignored, it doesn’t go silent, but makes such trouble as to cause the person intense pain and suffering. This is what causes many people to turn to addictions of all kinds. They do it in order to push away the pain that the neglected soul is causing. Music, and indeed all art, is a means in which we can access and free the human soul, a means which gives the spirit a realm in which to move, to be itself, have legitimacy and communication. It is also a way to call others into the light of truth.
