To understand music, you must listen to it. But so long as you are thinking, “I am listening to this music,” you are not listening.
Alan W. Watts
To listen to music truthfully, and to listen to true music.
To close your eyes and use new ears.
To immerse yourself in the music that is closer to your heart, the one your senses find most fulfilling.
Indeed, all good resolutions for the new year.
