I wondering about modern music. I've gotten to where I can't stand the degeneration of modern music. I prefer to listen to classical when I listen to music on my recreational/personal time away from work. At work they have a music station playing the modern music constantly. I am leaving my current job for another one where I'll have more time for meditation and volunteer work, as well as I'll be able to play classical relaxation music rather than listening to degenerated nonsense. In the meantime what can I do to deal with my current job where I have to put up with the music? I know sometimes we have to deal with things beyond our control in our environment. How can I make sure these negative vibrations of music aren't getting embedded in my mind? I do notice sometimes these lyrics from songs come up in my mind even though I try to not pay attention to the music at my job.

The unpleasant situations in life give us the ability to see what elements within us are suffering. Use this situation, while it lasts, to study your own mind and to discover what elements in you react negatively to this stimulus.

The method is explained in this book:

"If thou canst not make thine own self what thou desireth, how shalt thou be able to fashion another to thine own liking. We are ready to see others made perfect, and yet we do not amend our own shortcomings."
—Thomas à Kempis

Ok. I will do that. I'm already out of that environment but I will go back to those moments and meditate on them. I haven't yet studied that book. I will study it next. Thank you.
