Message in a bottle…

Page

Page is my best friend, I write to her for 12 years to this day, she never returned any letter to me, she never criticized or blamed, she gave me tons of love in return, through her silent and patient listening skills, allowing for me to hear my replys instead. Page I adore, wishing I had some of the wisdom she has, and now introduces me to this hi-teck friend of her's, Blog is his name! Hope he's as nice as her! As for the contents in this, "various" I b.liv I'ld list! :-)

PRESENTATION

I have 2 pieces to share with you, one about the contradicting states of pregnancy and abortion and one about child raising, and for some reason just don’t feel its time yet, to post them, they are pretty personal as well, so maybe I feel a little shy at the moment, posted a few quite generic ideas and thoughts, methods and poems, and now… although have more of those too, feel there is something I should do before pouring out more words on this blog… that is: presenting myself!

So, hello everybody, I am a 33 years old, half Italian, half Greek woman, living in Greece for quite a while now, after having studied in England and fallen in love with the language.

My studies have nothing to do with what I do for living, I studied European Law, Politics and Economics, think I chose those topics because since a very early stage in my life felt quite appalled by these words, and just wanted to undress the ghost and see what was really behind it all, getting me angered every time they come up into discussion.

I have a Production studio, create TV shows, advertisement, books, brochures,  etc.

For the shows I do the direction, production, postproduction… everything that’s needed to get the show ready for viewing. Don’t work for third parties, so, don’t worry, I’m not trying to find clients for my business here, only produce my own shows, have got 2 of them on air in Greece, one is a cooking program teaching about food being our first medicine, healthy cooking and health through knowledge of what to eat and when to eat it. The 2nd one is a talk show concerning herbal remedies for beauty and health.

I am shortly coming out with my third baby show, hopefully by the end of the year, fingers crossed.

I am a single mom, my son is going to be 3 at the beginning of September, and am yet adjusting to this new “condition” that is, being a mother… Believe I’m getting there, slowly and surely though! :-)

Also, have been a vegetarian since 1998, not vegan, can do without meat not without cheese… but I smoke, probably the only fault I have is this, yes, to excuse myself for being a smoker, to my parents who will forever hope I’ll cut tomorrow, I do often state that I do it not to create myself any false hopes of being too perfect! It’s the best lie I’ve come up so far, but please be so kind as to share any better lines if you have any, think my excuse has grown old!

I was a very curious child, and as it happens to people that hunt for invisible treasures not knowing what exactly they are searching for and where, got in trouble quite early in life (and MUCH), so at some point, when all begun to explode in my face, found shelter in a Page… Started writing about everything I felt like speaking about, begun analyzing me, writing became my self-therapy… It has been 12 years now of systematic daily work, during which time I got to experience myself in a way not many people nowadays do, understanding that all I was searching for, wasn’t outside, rather in me, realizing I am my own treasure!

I believe I had a rebirth 12 years ago, as a structure to itself and now after much designing and crafting, I am attempting an opening gala, a step forward in the transformation of this creation into a structure to the whole!

My parents, which I begun appreciating later in life, are helping me very much with my Son, if it weren’t for them, I don’t believe I could have done it to both be a single-mother and run my own business as also meditate with Page daily and have the time for Blogging as well!!!

In my life I don’t have everything solved, I actually have tons of work in progress in every single field, and I’m very far from being wise, or enlighten. I’m a cruiser, a traveler of the human mind, the human soul and the human body, at once.

I like dancing from one reality of mine to the next and to embrace them all into one dancing move, attempting togetherness in every way I can, “within and without” myself, regard this as a skill we all have and can master for the purpose of making our days brighter and happier, giving our lives a deeper meaning. One that isn’t for sanctity and that doesn’t follow any particular current. Rather a meaning whose depths tackle the broader understanding of our very own selves. Realizing we all hold marvels inside and that we can all do extraordinary things. Becoming truer to our nature and consequently always less confined by social standards and complexes; thus keeping well away from futile and truly time wasting conflicts (haven’t yet reached this point)!

We have all grown “bugs” along the way, but we have also grown into “cultivators” of our secret gardens, of our internal territories, those holding all the flowers we create, think of and feel, and for this reason I retain it plausible to say we are all capable of, at least, confining the bugs and their destructive tendencies!

Well, this is me and my general beliefs, really, the outline, there is more though, some experience, some ideas, some philosophy, some poetry, some tales, and few other things… :-)

WAYS

INJUSTICE… What does INJUSTICE mean? The… Un-just thing one does… Un-just where Just means Right, so what is the Un-Right? WRONG.

RIGHT & WRONG

Now, what do these words mean?

RIGHT= the proper way, as opposed to…

WRONG= the improper way…

So, what we are basically talking about is WAYS, the roads one can take, being either proper to a cause or improper to that same cause.

Of course there are opinions and opinions, on what proper or improper is, but lets just concentrate on the matter for both Right and Wrong, that is: “WAYS”.

Let us picture in our minds a “way”… a road… multiply this road, make them hundreds, as to symbolize the infinity of ways existing and the plethora of choices one has.

[Take a moment to recreate the image in your head]

Now, care to make this image a bit more accurate to our primary quest: a Right or a Wrong is defined by what YOU believe to be Right or Wrong. The roads you picture, therefore, they all depart from the same starting point, you.

[Take a moment to picture this]

These roads you are picturing in your head can easily be compared to the rays of a geometrical figure, a circle… now let them enter a three-dimensional environment,  let them become the rays of a sphere, give them natural life, transform them instantly into the shiny rays of a Sun, beginning from a fireball and ending into the abyss. Don’t follow any of these rays, to see where they take you, see the whole picture first, see this Sun emanating rays/ roads/ ways, that depart from under your nose, the Sun is under your nose.

[Stop for a minute and observe]

These rays go in different directions, and they form a crown around you, they surround the fireball and by doing so they blind you from seeing its real shape. You can see the light it surrounds itself with; see the rays, but not the actual fire that produces them.

Do you know an ancient proverb that speaks: “By looking at the tree you miss the forest?”

Well! The opposite is also true: “By looking at the forest you miss each one of its trees!”

Can’t figure out why that came to mind just yet, but I have a feeling I will find out soon…

Let your mind take in this Sun of ways, this sphere, without doing much digging, simply look at it (in your mind, doing it for real will only ruin your corneas) and now turn the image upside down.

See that this Sun is very distant, not under your nose anymore, rather miles away, see yourself not being that sun, neither next to it, see yourself being the receiver of its warmth instead, the receiver of the light. In other words, put yourself at the end of the road, at the ending line of one of the Sun’s rays…

Are you in the position to state, whether this ray that unifies you (the ending line) to the Sun, is an entirely proper or improper way?

Whether the ray to your left is proper?

Whether the one on the right is improper?

Whether any of these rays are Right or Wrong? My personal opinion is: No, not entirely!

And this is way:

You are a Sun too, you emanate rays just like the “real” Sun does, you will receive the light of one ray, one way, one road… from the Sun: probably this translates in the allowance of a “Lifetime”, but you will transform the light you receive into a smaller Sun emanating at 360 degrees in 3D of rays too!

Some rays you’ll produce will be proper or improper, for you, to your causes, not necessarily in the same way as for everybody else, at impact with your choices. These rays/ways/roads will however be characterized as proper or improper from other people, people who have made entirely different choices. People who, likewise, have also been “enlighten” by the Sun and have transformed the light they received in their own personal Suns exactly as it happened with you… Are you seeing where this whole picture leads us?

It is a network of Suns, ours, a connected and well functioning mechanism for Giving and Receiving light, in terms of rays, from the Sun to you and back, from the Sun to everybody else and back, and from everybody to you and vice versa.

It’s all a process of Giving and Receiving in general!

Point being that it’s really crowded in here, and for this reason it’s very easy to step on each others ways, to bump and collide, so, for as long as you minimize the “limitation” you might cause to others, for them to Give and Receive as well as you, you are actually working finely into this network… balanced and in tune with… the “Forest of Suns”!! (That’s why I thought of the forest and the trees, aha!)

I’ll become repetitive now but I don’t mean to intrude into the workings of your minds, merely just state the presence of this method I find quite clarifying – at times – using it for the purpose of exploring the “Network of Suns” a vision representing “Humanity” here.

The method is to concentrate on Matter, because that is the One in common for each contradiction you are faced with during your life, whilst the various “Directions” for your contradictions could pretty much be infinite! And yes, – (negative/wrong) and + (positive/right) charges exist, but you cannot group them universally, they are relative to your subjective prospective on all levels of being (Mind, Body and Soul), therefore three-dimensionally speaking the difficulty is three times bigger than infinite in formulating a Universal theory, if you base it on the directions of thought!

You will eventually come out with a style, a belief, that will end up grouping you in a “church” that is for plenty or for a few, but bear in mind it will only hold a part of the Universal truth, one aspect of it, not the whole, it won’t hold everything in it, exactly because it is based on the study of a direction and not the centre of, the nucleus, the matter they all hold!

P.S. I will write another essay regarding “limitation” and the reasons why I believe they should be minimized, and that’s because not many choose to read through my texts if they are too long!

“HOT STOVE’ BURNING DISBELIEF & DESIRES”

IS IT WRONG OF ME TO WANT YOUR MEAT?

FOR IT TO BE FRESH WHEN WE MEET?

AND STAY ALIVE AFTER IT BECOMES FOOD TO EAT?

 

NO! NO!

NO OTHER IS GOOD FOR ME,

I HAVEN’T CHOSEN IT.

YOU SEE?

 

SO

DON’T DRIVE ME CRAZY

JUST COME WITH ME

MAKE THE WAIT WORTH WHILE

DON’T LET ME BURN AND FRY…

STEAM, I PREFER

STEAMING IS A HEALTHIER STYLE.

 

MELT IN MY MOUTH

FOR AN HOUR

LEAVE!

GO WHEREVER YOU DESIRE!

 

LISTEN!

WOULDN’T KILL OR BITE

COULDN’T HURT A FLY

I WOULD JUST…

KEEP YOU CLOSE

FOR A WHILE.

 

AND IF THAT’S TOO MUCH TO ASK

AND “OVEN” IS WHAT YOU REQUIRE

DON’T APOLOGIZE FOR IT

EXCUSE IS SOUR!

 

TILL YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND

I’LL BE DREAMING OF YOU

WANDERING AROUND MY HOME

RELAXED AND

NAKED TO THE BONE

FLIRTING WITH BASIL LEAFS

AND CLOVE.

 

Heart’ Flower

The Skin of Soul

Once a Darling Rock-man

Told me he couldn’t figure out:

If I was a Leaf…

Or the Breeze shaking it?

I still sometimes think of this.

Another saw a Magician…

And one saw a Witch

But

A Messenger

I’d like to think myself to be.

Child of the World

Unleash your imagination and fly,

Move along with the wind,

Dance and Sing to this rhythm.

Whisper your Message,

Draw it on breath that mists glass

On the windows of a car,

And on the mirrors in the bath.

Inspiration for those

Who will write

Upon me

Words on my skin.

If I needed nothing more than words to live by,

I would already be in Paradise.

… Line Acrobatics

Picture taken from the site Circus performers .orgWelcome,

The “Paper Circus for thoughts”

is in town tonight!

 

Here Acrobats

Caught in ribbons of  ink

Travel their Lines.

And improvise,

At all times.

A jump, a turn,

Truth and Lies.

 

Years pass by… and

The “Cyber Circus for thoughts”,

arrives.

 

The Acrobats,

Clicking on keyboard and mouse

Travel their scripts’ outlines

Typing,

Whatever comes to mind…

 

These fine Gymnasts

Always find ways

To keep their shows

Alive!

Where opposites meet…

A Journey within, through the use of Analogy

I’d like to suggest an experiment today; I’ll walk you through it, and speak the experiment on myself, but who of you wants to, can simply follow the outline of this reading, answer the questions I refer to, disregarding my answers. Using this as a compass for a mind journey of his very own! :-)

Bear in mind this is a journey within!

Spoke of Need and Want before, how the two hold parts of each other, how, for instance, “Want to care” holds a “Need to care” just like the opposite is also true. But:

What is Want?

What is Need?

Use Analogy, using it helps you relax and forget about the lack of confidence in matters of language, there are millions of ways to describe and define a word… for instance, I’d go for this:

“Need is what water is to plants and Want is what fertilizer is to them”.

The “Plant” here is the Matter whereas Water and Fertilizer are the directions this matter follows (see “You can do Magic” or “Want and Need” for a more detailed explanation on my use of the words “Matter” and “Direction”). And although for the vegetable kingdom we could leave it to that, our target is to understand more, learn, maybe even come to terms with our Needs and Wants (or is that too much to ask of ourselves? :-) ) so, let’s bring it back to the “human” environment:

What does the plant stand for, in the human context? Human life: You!

What could Water be analogically compared to in the human world? Could it be… Oxygen?

And Fertilizer? Food, maybe?

Automatically, we have that: “Need is our Oxygen, Want is our Food”

Where “Our” stands for US, Humans, the Human form. Concentrate on Human form (the matter) and ask:

“What is my Human form?”

Let’s define that, what is it made of? What are its constituents?

You may think this is all too structured and mathematical for your liking, but I can ensure you it will go bizarre in about 5 seconds from now…


The constituents of my Human form? My body, one sure thing, all and every one of its organs and parts…

my brain, my heart, my bowel, hands and lips and nose and legs… In a previous reading I spoke of taking directions away, as by means of focusing on and understanding Matter, now comes the time to bring those back to play: overlap them!

Put the 2 directions together (Oxygen and Food in the analogy with Need and Want), it’s not always easy, but in this case it is. Overlapping opposite directions makes them neutralize each other, a bit like Mr. Smith and Nio at the end of the movie “Matrix” did. Neutralized directions, in turn, stop hurting one the other, rather learn to coexist, learn about togetherness.

Now, let your thoughts go slowly and surely into the images of the anatomy you know of yourself, pick an organ or part of your body as you browse through them, I just chose randomly my Tongue.

Give it some Oxygen, let it breathe… healthy and serene your tongue relaxes, see it has a life of its own, and that she is waking up just now, stretching after a long sleep and taking a big breath to get back into shape… your tongue now is ready for breakfast, give it Food, allow her to grow, to be fertilized… the food my tongue requests right now is something fresh and sweet at the same time, like a Jasmine flower’ scent, turn the scent into a taste, close your eyes to enhance it, let your palate recall the flavor of Jasmine… and as you held into picturing the shape of a breathing tongue, hold a little longer adding to this picture the flavor of Jasmine, cook an awakening potion in the sensorial kitchen of your mouth, for your tongue to taste!

Do this with a few more organs or parts of the body that you come to think of first. When you’ll feel satisfied with the images you created, it will be time to move further on…

What else is my human form made of? My mind, all and every one of my dreams and thoughts…

again, make the analogy for your dreams and thoughts, put them into the context of your physical body, they also are organs in your body, they respectively are the organs and parts of your Intellectual body.

Watch a series of dreams rushing fast before your eyes, pick one that pleases you to think of, I would suggest for you not to indulge in the “feeding” of one too many dreams at once, these organ’s immensity could lead you out of focus, just one for now… allow it to breathe in Oxygen.

What is Oxygen for dreams? In an instant I come to think it’s Hope, the word I’m looking for, so give your dream Hope… and let the images of this dream overwhelm you for a minute, next, pass on to Food… feed your dream with hmmm… Action! Let these images move, create a movie, fantasize…

A dream of mine is to build shelters for kids and their families that could work as infirmaries and nurseries, school and playground. So, I give my dream some Hope, the Hope that one day I will be able to make this dream come true, without having to get involved with organizations!

In my dream, now filled with hope, I reach the building site, see the contractors drawing and discussing about the plumbing in the building, the first shelter is getting built, there are kids already playing in the backyard… and Action: I am with those kids in the backyard, we are hanging white sheets to dry, a boy comes with a bucket full of orange paint, looks at me with cheeky eyes whilst dipping his hand in the bucket. Of course my clothes and face turn all orange; we chase each other with colors in our hands splashing paint everywhere and soon after everyone else join us in the game, naturally the sheets too…

Bear in mind we are moving to thoughts soon, take the 1st scene that comes to mind at this time, watch the trailer of your dream movie, not the whole movie right now, but reassure yourself you’ll be back later, to catch up on this viewing!

And now thoughts… if dreams are the Organs here; could thoughts analogically be the Parts, in our intellectual body? Just like hands, feet, neck, are the parts of our physical body?

Define Parts: the regions our organs inhabit. Could then dreams be the inhabitants of thoughts? And in turn, could thoughts be the vessels our dreams fill? Let this one be the maiden concept for the Oxygen to find its gateway. Oxygen-Hope transforms now into Air that flows through all the pores of your skin, matching your physical body to your intellectual body.

Focus onto a thought, what is Oxygen for thoughts? At this very minute I think its kindness, stroke your thoughts gently… allowing them to breathe at a stable rate, concentrate on the first thoughts that come to mind, even if they speak of: “time passing, tons of work to do – no time to finish, no more time to sit and meditate” even if its worries… allow yourself to concentrate on the word they have in common: TIME. Dare to define even Time for yourself, what do you think of Time? Is it just a ticking clock for you or is it something more? …Give your thoughts Food… What is Food for thought? More thought maybe!! :-)

Play the part of the scientist or the philosopher and dive into the definition of Time. Use analogy, let your mind lead you and don’t question the validity of its suggestions, if it brings “loafs of bread” to the surface of thought, for instance, try to understand the connection it’s trying to make, don’t rule it out immediately, except if you are hungry, in which case you know your mind is very politely taking the piss out of you!

Moving on to the 3rd dimension of the Human form… of Being: the Soul, made of feelings and emotions.

Your “Emotive body”… can we say that? Where all your feelings are the organs to explore, to give oxygen and food to, and the parts? What is the name of the regions your feelings inhabit? The Expressions of themselves… Emotions! Your smiles, your tears, your words… your colors, your dancing moves… the heat you might feel or the shivering cold, at impact. These are the cribs your feelings sleep in.

Give them their oxygen; give them the food they ask of you to prepare for them, and finally… when you’ll feel full and complete in your soul as well, put the puzzle together: physical, intellectual and emotive body as one.

Overlap them, going back to all the imagery created within this session: match for example the scent of Jasmine to the boy with the orange paint, giving taste to the orange color. I might even come out with an idea for a recipe with Jasmine flowers and Orange or Tangerine juice… maybe just what my body needs right now, and that is why I came to think of this and not something else… or the link means to say that the shelters of mine need to provide food for the kids as well! :-)

You get to discover yourself, your very special, utterly unique way of expressing and understanding yourself: the essence of your thoughts!

What you just witnessed, is the embrace of needs and wants, seeing they can be united, because they are safe, freed of the ties of social environment, ties that make too many distinctions and always less connections.

Now… Remember it all depends on the matters at hand and your willingness to work with and on them.

You have the chance to transform into an independent thinker, your existence comes unbound and free allowing you to improvise…  and

Enjoy the feeling!

P.S. Just a tip:  DO THIS WITHOUT THE USE OF DICTIONARIES, do it with your own head.

Daydream

ImageTODAY THE HEAT HERE ROSE TO 41 DEGREES CELSIUS, AND I WOULD RATHER BE SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH WITH PAGE AND INK, TO WRITE UNDER THE SHADE OF A TREE… THAN AT WORK. NEEDLESS TO RUN ALERT, FOR ANY REASON AT ALL.

YOU KNOW THAT DREAMS ARE BEAUTIFUL EVEN WHEN THEY DON’T COME TRUE? YEAH, THEY EXPRESS YOUR WISHES, THE KINDEST ONES ON THE PALETTE!

WELL, THAT WORKS FOR ME, BUT NOW DAYDREAMING MUST STOP, SHOULD BE GETTING BACK TO MY JOB.

“DREAM? COULD YOU HOLD ON AS YOU ARE TILL I GET RIGHT BACK ON YOUR LAP? WILL YOU WAIT FOR ME TO BE BACK? WELL, TILL THEN, HAVE A NICE ONE!”

“HELLO REALITY! YES, AS USUAL I’M LATE! SORRY ABOUT THAT! COME EASY ON ME, ALLRIGHT?”
