Do you sometimes feel an urge to rise above yourself to a place beyond your limitations? Do you ever feel that some kind of feeling or perception has come to you from beyond yourself? 

Kabbalah teaches that we have five levels of soul. Three reside within us and one resides above in the higher spheres. Then there is one that is the interface, which is connected to us but not in us and, at the same time, connected to higher worlds but not residing there. That interface is called Chaya. Some liken this to an aura, a kind of surrounding radiance, energy. When we need something to reach the heavens or heavens need something to reach our heart, the “messenger” is the vehicle of Chaya. 

This music speaks of that place between worlds and the light ascending and descending between them.

"Chesed" means Kindness. According to the Kabbalists, it is one of the ten Sefirot or basic processes by which our universe is created. It is also part of the process of "tikun olam" or repairing the world from where we have taken it off course into spheres of suffering and destruction. According to me, Chesed is the finest achievement of being human, the pinnacle and purpose of existence. If so, why is there not more Kindness? Because Kindness starts with compassion and compassion (literally from the Latin "to suffer with") starts with pain. Feeling sorry for someone is not compassion. Compassion is feeling the pain with the knowing that, so long as there is love, we are not separate. Kindness is compassion translated into action, an attempt to heal the pain, to bring comfort, to make whole again that which was broken, that which is hurting. 

The reason I have written this music is bring the healing and loving energy of Chesed to you. May it be that you always feel the flow of Chesed coming to you, holding you, caring for you, protecting you.

Ananda is bliss. Ananda is quite different than happiness.  The two share a feeling of elevation and expansion beyond limitation, but happiness is temporal, and it must constantly be renewed - or else it fades. So happiness does not bring peace. Ananda, on the other hand, is timeless, eternal - and so it is a place of imperturbable peace. There are many that say that Ananda is our true nature and that all we need to do is uncover it from its place within us. Listen to the music. Perhaps something will be uncovered for you.
