VIDEO: Music and life by Alan Watts via South Park

Has playing music given you a greater perspective on your life?
Back in 2007, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, produced a series of flash video cartoons based on recordings of the philosopher Alan Watts, with their animation collaborators Chris Brion and Todd Benson.
One of the videos, Music and Life, suggests that people should live their lifes in a similar manner to how they would listen to a composition  rather than focusing on and chasing the climatic last chord finale.

It’s an interesting analogy, especially for musicians, although with the financial pressures and social stresses of the modern world it is perhaps rather too idealistic for some depending on their situation.
Have you taken any lessons from the journey of learning to understand and play musical instruments?
