Frees us from inner heaviness and tensions

October 7th 2014
Everyone should make the effort to sing, even those who sing out of tune, since it is a way of working on oneself. When we sing, something powerful is set in motion physiologically from throat to diaphragm: the voice rings out, and little by little we feel relieved of inner tensions and heaviness. What do we know about angels? We picture them as winged creatures that sing. Like birds. We associate angels and birds with the idea of lightness and flight but also song. Just thinking of this should make us want to sing to free ourselves from everything that weighs us down. Humans could cure themselves of so many mental problems through singing! For the vibrations of the voice also have the power to break up dark presences that try to cling to us. Singing is an expression of life; life itself is nothing but song. And what could be more necessary and more invigorating than tearing ourselves away from the heavy atmosphere that surrounds us and soaring to realms where everything is harmonious, luminous and weightless?
