A balance between movement and stillness means you’re in harmony with yourself, psychologist John M. Ortiz suggests. Composer Claude Debussy famously claimed that “music is the space between the notes.” Music moves; music is still. In this frantic world, do you take enough time and space for yourself?
Do you breathe? Do you daydream? Do you dance or move? Do you lie in the grass to watch the clouds? If we follow music’s example, we can learn to breathe, to be quiet, to feel excitement or passion, to rest, and to dream.
