Stare in those eyes and tell me…
Is it truths or lies, they seal?
Stare in those eyes and wander…
Is it pain a smile could heal?
Stare in those eyes and feel…
Is it you or me, they see?
Moisture every kindness allowed in.
Μια κρεμάμενη μάσκα από ορατούς αλλά και αόρατους δεσμούς…
μες στο σκότος φέγγει,
από το ίδιο της το φως αντανακλά!
Είναι αυτό που αναζητάς … Ή δεν είναι;
Μια σκέψη να γίνει αλήθεια..
Να την ακολουθάς σιωπηλά…
να την ποθείς… να την αγαπάς…
να αποκτήσει σάρκα και οστά.
Φεγγοβολή και από το ίδιο της το φως αντανακλά…
Μια μάσκα… που κοιτάς;
Είναι ο Ήλιος…
Το φως της γνώσης…
Της ηρεμίας η σπίθα…
Μια σπιθαμή παλάμη, που κλείνοντας αυτή…
Ένα μοναχικό λουλούδι,
άνθρωπος να γίνει με το άνοιγμα της…
Η μαγεία της ζωής αντικαθιστά την απορία,
δεν τη λύνει, απλά τη ντύνει…
κλωστές χρυσαφιές … πλεγμένες με προσοχή,
κέντημα κόκκινο σκουφί,
μακρινό συγγενικό πρόσωπο είναι αυτό…
μια κοκκινοσκουφίτσα στο στόμα του λύκου.
« Δοντάκια χαλασμένα…», του λέει!
« … πρόσεχε, θα πέσουν και θα πονάς μετά! »
Ο λύκος την μάσκα του βγάζει
είναι άνθρωπος και αυτός θυμωμένος,
οργισμένος αλλά και θλιμμένος…
« Τι θέλεις; », της απαντά
« Τίποτα! »
Παλάμη που κλείνοντας αυτή…
Ένα μεγάλο αγγελούδι,
φτερά να αποκτήσει με το άνοιγμα της…
να πετάξει ψηλά…
Κόβει η μαχαιριά!
Λάθος έκανε και πάλι…
« Δεν θα με πιάσεις… Που να σκάσεις!
Στην ομοιότητα τα αντίθετα δώσε…
και να’ σαι πάντα καλά!
Άντε γεια! »
Παλάμη που κλείνοντας αυτή…
μια κρεμάμενη μάσκα κρατά…
από ορατούς αλλά και αόρατους δεσμούς..
Ήλιος να γίνει στο άνοιγμα της…
Το φως της γνώσης…
Της ηρεμίας η σπίθα…
Μια σπιθαμή… παλάμη που κλείνοντας αυτή
την δική σου βροντά…
« Χάρηκα », σου λέει
μια σε παλεύει…
μια σε αγαπά…
μια σε χαϊδεύει…
μια σε χτυπά…
« Πιάσε το μαχαίρι…»
« Άδικα κοπιάζεις, είναι ήδη αργά! »
Αγάπη είναι με το άνοιγμα της…
During the past month I’ve been meditating on the word FUSION and -in short- my research got me to explore topics like: fusion of ideas, thoughts, beliefs… Trying to see the World as one, in all the contradictions and the divergences within it. So, at some point last week, whilst washing a pile of dirty dishes, an idea came up, thought of a funny way to exercise combination skills. This idea matured in me and its with great pleasure that I present you today “THE BLENDING GAME”.
How it works: I’l choose a topic and express my view on it, the person who wishes to play will have to repeat or summarize mine as also add his own view. The next player, fitting the previous two views into his writing will also add his ideas on the subject matter, and so on.
In this way, theoretically speaking, the game of blending could carry on to the infinite. No barriers, no limitations to creativity and inspiration!
An example: Topic, “THE SUN”
One speaks “The sun is bright”
Next one says “The sun is bright and warm”
3rd says “The sun is bright and warm but if you’re not careful enough it could burn your skin”
And so on…
This example is a very elementary version of what I’m suggesting to do here, also, the topic I feel like introducing is far more intricate as well:
Here we go…
“Ownership is a notion just as fictitious as the notions of right and wrong. Ownership in reality doesn’t exist. “Our” Body belongs to Nature, not us. “Our” Spirit is just a hint of the common for all Spirit.”Our” Soul processes the interactions of Body & Spirit, turns them into thoughts, ideas, sensations, feelings and even these are only passing by us, provisionally on our path, and if for a while we nurture them as “ours”, alike babies, they independently grow into adults and eventually get a life of their own.”
Can you combine this opinion to your opinion on Ownership?
Rules of the game: This game has one rule, NO DEBATE, this isn’t a game for opponents! Displaying ideas with the purpose of colliding with one the other and disputing differences IS FORBIDDEN.
This game promotes the exact opposite actually. The purpose here is to find the links in between our ideas and together explore a broader understanding of a specific topic. However, this doesn’t mean that only people with similar views can play, it just means that the person with the dissimilar view could add his, using terms like “but” or “then again it is also true that…” And so on…
Use both differences and similarities as links in between beliefs!
One last thing, since this game doesn’t have an end, I would suggest a 1 month playing time for it, after which, if there is demand, we could together make a list of topics and freely choose in which ones to play, like a multi-social-game network or something! :-)
Whoever wants to join this game and play, could publish the topic in his own blog and link the article in the comment section below. Having said this, I’m not a very popular blogger, and this isn’t my target anyways, so, please feel free to pass it on, if you like the idea. It would be great to see how people can blend their ideas and create together. To observe, step by step, the process of blending happening!
Wishing for a creative November
If all we actually needed to learn in life, is how to deal with NEEDS, of ours and of others…
I come to the following conclusions:
…LIFE SEEN AS A GROUND FOR NEEDS TO BE MET
You have Needs (Discover what those are)
Others have Needs (They need to discover what those are)
Our Needs need being met (If our purpose is to live in peace and harmony with ourselves and each other)
We are the only ones that can make the above happen (n.1-2-3).
Our Needs need be revealed to each other to make the above happen (n.1-2-3).
Therefor EACH ONE OF US needs to deal with:
The DISCOVERY of his real Needs ———————————————————————- THE INTERNAL FACTOR
The CONSIDERATION of the real Needs of others———————————————————————- THE EXTERNAL FACTOR
The WILLINGNESS to help him/herself and others meet real Needs——————————————————————— TOGETHERNESS FACTOR
Each “Factor” owns its key word, namely: Discovery – Consideration – Willingness
These three key words are required skills we ought to improve constantly on.
So that possibly:
DISCOVERY————– could lead to — AWARENESS
CONSIDERATION—– could lead to — COMMUNICATION
WILLINGNESS———- could lead to — CHANGE
For the RESEARCH and DISCOVERY process of oneself I personally believe the only thing needed is a pen and paper: start speaking to yourself in writing until you tell yourself the truth about YOU. Takes long but it eventually happens. Will not solve it all, you’l find a lot of mess and you might want to quit, don’t do it! Working with your thoughts and feelings is the most beautiful thing, far better than sex, laughing, drinking, eating or anything… really.
For the study of CONSIDERATION we need to find ways – techniques – methods to do the following:
Learn how to give Consideration when asked.
Learn how to ask for Consideration when you need it.
Learn how to deal with “deliberate” Consideration from another (Consideration not requested by you, but offered): Acceptance – Debate – Refusal
Learn how to deal with the “deliberate” Consideration you feel like providing to another (Consideration not requested by the other, but offered by you): Acceptance – Debate – Refusal
n.1 in the previous list, reveals a Need of yours to offer Consideration.
n.2 in the previous list, reveals a Need of another to offer you Consideration.
For the enhancement of the WILLINGNESS in doing the above, we need to answer two very simple questions:
Do we like the Human World (Society) as is now?
There are many ways we could choose to apply ourselves in these fields of study: workshops, seminars, self made theories, schools of thought and so on. Good news being the Internet freely provides plethora of information and ideas on how to exercise and improve awareness, communication and will power. Provided we realize how crucial these are for our evolution as human beings, living in a Human World, in a World in which we would like to some day see Peace, Love, Truth and Freedom… spring: please choose which ones do it for you!!!! :-)
With “deliberate” consideration
What if… Disease was really a Cure!
Where without it there would be doom…
a state of stillness,
no growth, no evolution, no life!
What if it were in disguise
Not an enemy, nor a thief!
What if it’s there…
for us to learn and bare with it.
What if our obsession with finding sanity
into pharmacy, hospital and psychotherapy
is the real Disease,
what if the real Cure
was to be found by Us, in Us.
What if we held our own antidote within.
And finally, what if…
Disease wasn’t disease at all,
but a special power,
disabling “normal” powers
in favor of something else, something other.
Now bare in mind: (read quickly)
If you can find even just one constructive outcome,
of your Disease (from Flu to Depression to Cancer and all the more) and You,
in your joint venture,
concentrating on it would mean finding your special power!
The destructive sides of the Disease translate in the challenge,
whilst searching for positiveness in it.
You’l probably, very shortly, feel much better…
If the condition persists, degenerates,
as they say:
“Consult your Doctor”
(I dare say… YOU)
P.S. This is to be taken into consideration only as a parallel suggestion to any therapy you’re undertaking, not a substitute, just in case I’m wrong! :-)
