I heard that facing the truth is hard and makes u suffering. Or even disgusting like Mr. Jung wrote in his psycho-books. That it s painful but worthy because it s going to help the blossomin of a new personality, and stuff like that.
But facing ourself can also be easier than we think and more comfortable than reading a psycho-book about it. It just happens, just because you want. If you want to play you will get the ball and play. Without any need to feeling hurt nor misunderstood nor even crashed inside. There is no confusion about it. It is already happening this kind of enjoyement.
With great enthusiasm i send this video for watching to a dear local friend/colleague because this song is one of the coolest about a Dinasty which itself was one of the best of all Chinese history. Even just speaking about Tang period i can feel in my body the power of this slice of history and this has been confermed by other friends and people who know deeply about Chinese history and do appreciate their roots and all the good spiritual character evoked thru them!
It is an extraordinary thing the fact that each human being can love and respect the history from his/her background because he knows that a part of himself resides in it, a vibrant lively part of his own inner force. Denying or rejecting our history, considered not as a mere sequence of events and happenings, but as a vital and important piece of our soul, is like rejecting our own personality. It is rejecting our name, our birth, our essence. The HISTORY of our precedessor is in our cells, in the veins, we cannot refuse it. We can go beyond it, understand it and accept it but we cannot reject it. It is inhuman to do so. In addition, if it is a respectable and positive memorable time we should know and be very proud of that.
I heard that friend saying “I hate Chinese history” and “this song is scary”. Seeing the meaning of its words a new world opens up to your mind, they are words of power echoing a time of splendor that many Chinese are only dreaming to see back but they are probably doing a little part of what it should be done to make this shining force reviving again. People who tells to hate the history, i dont know where they come from. maybe from a different inaccesible planet which is not on this earth. Perhaps they enjoy to be occluded by their not-historical ignorance.
Sometimes freshness and modernity make this joke in our minds. They create such a confusion of identities that we are not anymore able to understand what we are and why we are here. What is the reason of our life, of our existence. These questions are not anymore difficult to answer to for the same reason that we do live in a modern world now. Exactly those people who are rejecting history are still living projected in the past dimension of the history and will probably play no role in the making of the present and future history of our highly elevated and spiritual humanity.
Sitting down here you can think about anybody – your mother, father, anybody. You will know each centre you are catching and all these centres denote something within you. But if you want me to teach you everything in one day, it’s not possible. You have to give some time to yourself, that’s all. I think that’s the only thing needed, that you have to give some time to yourself and you have to value yourself.
Nirmala Devi Srivastava, 1979
Celebrity worshipping is one of the train stops in this Trend Blend map for the new year. How true is it? After noticing the word “HAPPY..” in the set up message of the chat with my sister I immediately thought “oh wow she’s wishing Happy Chinese new year to everybody” when scrolling the full sentence appears “Happy birthday Vasco”: her favorite singer whose songs she listens with no interruption almost. She also went to his concert joining a crowd of thousands of thousands last year. Is it the kind of worshipping we are talking about today? Probably yes~! It’s like a battle in the human mind. We follow whom we like. But usually the aspects of the celebrities to catch mostly our attention are simply frivolous and unreal, like they last for some years; maybe also for 20 years but then they leave the place to other celebrities just depending on which side of our ego or superego we would like to worship better. It is more related to an internal oriented worshipping.
What do we do to defend ourselves from these celebrity-attacks? Are we still completely ourselves even though we are very much dragged into their creations and trends? Until which point is our attention independent and pure? Until which point we depend on these sort of gurus thru their music and art instead of depending on the guru within ourselves? How much does our centered balances still hesitate?
