HONOR — Music Themes

HONOR is the Music Theme for this week.
Do means determine the honor of the end?
Magical Maddie has chosen:  “In Memory of…” for Memorial day as the next Music Theme.
_________________________________________
What is honor?
Is honor blind loyalty?
Is honor adherence to an ideology?
Is honor a promise?
Is it honorable to keep all promises?
Is honor determined by preference?
Is honor the same as public reputation?
Does opinion determine the nature of honor?
Do people without honor live the same as people with honor?
Do ideas of honor shape individual character?
Are individuals responsible for the honor of groups in which they find themselves?
Can those without clear ideas of honor be honorable?
For love to be true, must there also be honor?
_________________________________________
Who and what do you honor?
What do you consider your greatest honor?
Is there honor by association?
Does the priority of personal loyalties determine honor?
_________________________________________
GULA GULA — Mari Boine
Hear the voices of the foremothers
Hear
They ask you why you let the earth become polluted
Exhausted
They remind you where you come from
Do you hear?
Again they want to remind you
That the earth is our mother
If we take her life
We die with her.

LYRICS
Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on
(chorus)
There are visions, there are memories
There are echoes of thundering hooves
There are fires, there is laughter
There’s the sound of a thousand doves
(chorus)
In the velvet of the darkness
By the silhouette of silent trees
They are watching, they are waiting
They are witnessing life’s mysteries
(chorus)
Cascading stars on the slumbering hills
They are dancing as far as the sea
Riding o’er the land, you can feel its gentle hand
Leading on to its destiny
(chorus)
Take me with you on this journey
Where the boundaries of time are now tossed
In cathedrals of the forest
In the words of the tongues now lost
Find the answers, ask the questions
Find the roots of an ancient tree
Take me dancing, take me singing
I’ll ride on till the moon meets the sea
(chorus x2)

Māori Whale Riders | Whales  
“whales.fieldmuseum.org/behind/people/maori-whale-riders
Accordingto this legend, Paikea (the whale rider) assumed his name from this humpback whale which rescued him after his brother tried to drown him at sea. The whale later carried Paikea to the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island, where he became the founder of the Ngāati Porou, a Māori tribe.”

Uakti — “Shadowside” — Music Themes

The Music Theme SHADOWSIDE was chosen by Madeline for this week.
Shadowside – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia “Shadowside is a heavy metal band with female vocals from Brazil drawing from influences of Thrash and Hard Rock.”
_______________________________
Johnny’s has chosen the Music Theme for next week: “THE DRIVE”
_______________________________
As there is always something unsaid, some mystery, with each of the theme choices and with the music participants use to follow in the various themes, as well as the hidden and sometimes unknown stories behind the music itself and the musicians, I thought I would post only one selection this week. To represent that unknowable background of which we only see the polished surface.  I have selected another Brazilian group, Uakti, whose music carries the shadowy mystery of Amazonia .

Uakti “… is a mythical musician described by the Tucano people of the Alto Rio Negro region of the Amazon. According to the legend, the creature had holes in his body such that they would produce sound when he ran or the wind blew through him.[1] This music (was so beautiful the sounds) seduced the women of the tribe and so the other men burned and buried his body. The myth holds that out of Uakti’s remains grew the palm trees from which the Tukanos’ flutes are made. The women of the Tukano Indians are thus not allowed to play flutes.

The Brazilian instrumental group Uakti takes its name from this myth.”  Uakti (myth) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Are some answers hidden by a protective  labyrinth, waiting for knowledge of the way to be remembered? Are the answers just part of the puzzel?  Can hidden knowledge be learned by study and research,  or must such knowledge be achieved by living experience?  Is being alive, itself, a journey through a layrinth?

Is it wished that some events would remain hidden by ignoring them or pretending they did not happen? Does ignorance of history make the past different?

In 1941 the largest single massacre of the Holocaust took place at Babi Yar, a ravine in Kiev.
In just 2 days almost 34 thousand Jews were murdered by a team of German SS troops, other German units, and local collaborators.

Are such massacres a thing only of the past? What horrors are secretly being perpetrated and hidden now? Yesterday? A month ago? Last year?   … Tonight?  … Tomorrow?

OVERCOMING — Music Themes

LISA OF THE LIGHT chose OVERCOMING as the Music Theme for this Week.
_______________________________________
The Music Theme for next week is  HIDDEN.
_______________________________________
Is it always right to overcome  perceived obstacles by permanently moving or destroying them?  What if the obstacles are put in place by Creator and are aspects of our Mother’s Beauty? What if the obstacles to progress are nature itself?  What if such obstacles are, for example, mountain tops?  What if choosing the wrong obstacles to overcome equals the death of joy?  Can People live without joy? Does not the beauty of Earth protect us from despair? How will future generations overcome despair if the beauty of nature is destroyed? Why do we toil and labor to create ruin?

Is overcoming evil a constant process against something formless and insidious, seductive?  Is evil only recognizable in overt violence? Can evil overcome the natural reticence of good people disguising itself in something as basic as learned attitudes and religion and traditions or perhaps as complicated as misinformation and the hidden meanings of language and myth or even a desire for revolution and change for the sake of ideology? What is required for people to overcome the desire to see only what is wished?

What broken hearts and hidden fears, what guilt and bitterness, what infirmities and pain, must People  overcome in order live? Is such courage always  discernible  by others? Are courage, spiritual strength,  fearlessness , and confidence, all the same qualities?  Can private grief ever be fully overcome? Is every act of care, every expression of love, every touch, an act of willful overcoming?

Can light be born from darkness? Is it possible that we not will not be reborn in our present form?  Will life always be born again? Can spirit live without the familiar home?  Will death and rebirth always follow, one after the other?  Are there beings  who consider what the universe would be like without themselves in it? Would Earth be peaceful without human beings? Would the cycles of birth, death, rebirth continue, both violent and peaceful, without humans? Are predators innocent in their hunger?  Are there other being who feel guilt for living? Is there rebirth in being food? Are bodies and spirits returned to their component parts, reverberating with creation, to be reformed in infinite oscillating cycles?

Is death complete and absolute, with nothing more?  Do sentient beings have a choice?

What does it mean to be reborn? Do death and rebirth have the same meaning for everyone? Is there an endless cycle of death and life? Or does to be reborn mean to be spiritually cleansed? Is rebirth the same experience for everyone? Does rebirth happen in the same context for everyone?  Is spiritual purification possible for everyone? Does spiritual growth take place in one lifetime or many?  Have there been beings who have achieved perfect enlightenment, already? Have these Beings been reborn, over and over, by choice? Will they continue to be reborn yet again? Is it not possible for people to travel different life paths with different beliefs, and arrive at the same destination, merely having different descriptive words and rituals? Can anyone decide for another what is the best path to follow?
