Chanting Heartsongs, Mantra & Kirtan: A powerful way to reconnect to the heart: By Kevin James
When we are in connection with our heart, everything changes.
Our heart has its own intelligence and is a doorway to our own inner light, the light of our awareness, unobstructed by thoughts of separation and an imaginary self or ego. Connected to our heart we find we are the person that our ego, can spend a lifetime attempting to imitate yet will always fail. We are effortlessly and naturally all the things we call good. Without trying or needing to follow rules or religious beliefs.
Somehow, through the process of our evolution, most of humanity has became disconnected from our true self or sense of being which has caused us to create a false or imaginary self that we hold in our memory and subconsciously recreate it like an addiction. This egoic collective unconsciousness has become normal, so for most people, this is difficult to believe. I understand this.
You surely have to experience it for yourself and this is what we do with the chanting circle, create a space for that to happen. It’s like a remembering. In a world where forgetting who we are has become normal, its destructive patterns have left us in an apparent life or death situation. We can remember together and support one another. And for me and many others, chanting Mantra and Heart songs is the perfect way to do it.
The way I see it, this disconnection from source is the number one cause of all our actions of disharmony, self abuse, dysfunction and creation of suffering on the planet and its time we realize that controlling ourselves and others through discipline and force doesn’t work. It just serves to strengthen the ego’s hold on us by assuming us to be something other than love. It’s true we needed to go through this but now it’s time for us to rise above.
There is nothing more difficult than trying to be who you already are!
It is stressful and completely insane. Fortunately, many people, all over the world are recognizing this and are willing to start the process of surrendering the ego and supporting each other to step into harmony, into being. Chanting heart songs, mantra and Kirtan brings us back home, into alignment with the heart, quickly, easily and with so much joy. It connects us, stills the mind and raises our conscious awareness out of our illusionary, habitual thought patterns into the heart, where we can see who we really are. It’s an honor to be co-creating this journey into the heart of one with you…
There is an ancient Chinese proverb that saysTell me and I’ll forget
Show me and I may remember
Involve me and I’ll understand
This is the philosophy behind these Chanting Heart songs circles.
Within the songs are messages of the heart. Some ancient, some modern and personal, yet all I believe are medicine for a mind that continues to believe the story of a separated self, yet yearns for reconnection, beyond the illusions that has confined the human spirit for so long.
