Truly Listening and Spiritual New Age Music

J. Krishnamurti

Truly listening is not easy or simple. It requires removing pre-conceptions and sometimes even feelings. It can also require a space or environment away from distractions, and require a place where you can focus.

The great thinker J. Krishnamurti had insightful discussions about listening which we’ll see in an excerpt, and we’ll discuss how spiritual New Age music can help you focus on listening.

It is important to know how to listen, not only to me particularly, but to anybody. It is important to know how to listen because if we know how to listen truly, something extraordinary happens to us, because then without any bias, without any prejudice, we can go to the root of the matter immediately. But if we throw up a lot of arguments, concoct devices or contradictions to see who is correct and who is not correct and carry on with our own particular idiosyncrasies and ideas, then we will not discover the truth of the matter at all. We shall only be concerned with our own particular conclusions, with our own point of view. So if I may suggest, it is important that we should listen truly because if we can know how to listen, the truth will reveal itself. We do not have to explore the problem, but if we know how to listen to the song of a bird, to the voice of another, if we can listen as to music without any interpretation or translation, it definitely clarifies the mind; so similarly, if it is possible, let us listen with that intention — not to confute or to conform, but to directly find out the truth for ourselves.

The above words are an excerpt from the great thinker and spiritual guide J. Krishnamurti.


In my own life when I think about truly listening, I think about creating a space where I can focus. Sometimes that means shutting out the noise around me, and sometimes that means actually creating an environment that enhances my focus. Sounds can distract me from my focus, but certain sounds and certain types of music can help my focus.

One type of music that can help a person focus is spiritual New Age music which combines relaxing music with depth and a personal connection. The result is not only a calm space, but it can also be a place for a person to relax and connect with their own self.
