The Music Theme for this week is HIDDEN.
MARVELOUS MADELINE has chosen next week’s theme: SHADOWSIDE
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?
LABYRINTH — Frigga’s Web — Hagalaz’ Runedance
What is not hidden, at all, though most do not or cannot see?
THE HIDDEN RAINFOREST — The Human Experience OST — Thomas Bergersen
Are silent prayers hidden ? Can secret gardens within the heart be known? Is finding hidden love actually the art of opening and revealing rather than keeping the true self hidden?
DREAMCATCHER — Secret Garden — Fionnuala Sherry
What cycles and magic are hidden from knowing? From what hidden and unknown means is the beauty and rebirth of Spring created? How can Spring be separated from anything else? Is Spring an isolated season?Is Spring visible part of the year and hidden at other times?
Tavaszhozó (Spring Creator) — Holdrejtek — The Moon And The Night Spirit
What is hidden behind the masks people wear? What can be perceived, through closed eyes, that is hidden from ordinary sight? Does the hidden meaning of language gain power with intent? How does hidden intent affect the form of prayer?
MASKED BALL — Flood — Eyes Wide Shut OST — Jocelyn Pook
“Translation from … Romanian to English:
“And God told to his apprentices…I gave you a command…to pray to the Lord for the mercy, life, peace, health, salvation, the search, the leave and the forgiveness of the sins of God’s children. The ones that pray, they have mercy and they take good care of this holy place”. Blueskywatcher
What skills, what practice, what hidden discipline and sacrifice, does mastery of the term Hidden Dragon represent?
NIGHT FIGHT — Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon OST – Tan dun — Yo Yo Ma

What occurs as a metamorphosis that is hidden? Can we see within the changes of nature without irrevocably altering the process? Do Human Beings experience metamorphosis? Are people always able to understand what is happening within themselves as they change and grow and live and die?
Μεταμόρφωση της Φύσης ( Nature’s Metamorphosis — Psychostasia — Daemonia Nymphe
MARVELOUS MADELINE: ♪Hidden – Music Theme
LISA OF THE LIGHT: Music Theme – Hidden
Sometimes nothing is hidden at all. There are no hidden meanings. It’s just for fun. It is all available.
Deva & Punagra — Faun with Omnia at Paganfol-Special 2006
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?

English translation by Paul Celan can be found here: Babi Yar Бабий яр
The Music Theme for this week is BALANCE.
Magical Maddie has chosen DEATH AND REBIRTH for the next theme.
THERE IS BEAUTIFUL BALANCE TO BE FOUND IN AN ECLIPSE
How to watch total solar eclipse on Friday
Astronomers to shed light on space discoveries to mark solar eclipse
A BALANCED life flows from the heart.
SHE CARRIES THE SKY — Matriarch Iroquois Women’s Songs — Joanne Shenandoah — Rachel Wood — Kalunyaha wi
The Vernal Equinox is that moment Balanced between sleeping and waking, between winter and spring, between chaos and creation.
Gaia — Faun
Is a life lived BALANCED on the precipice only an illusion of achievement and security?
PRECIPICE — Battlestar Galactica Season 3 – OST — Bear McCreary – Battlestar Galactica Orchestra
PRUIT IGOE — KOYAANISQATSI — Philip Glass
Leandro Da Silva
According to Hopi Dictionary: Hopìikwa Lavàytutuveni, the Hopi word koyaanisqatsi (Hopi pronunciation: [kojɑːnisˈkɑtsi]) is defined as “life of moral corruption and turmoil” or “life out of BALANCE”. The prefix koyaanis– means “corrupted” or “chaotic”, and the word qatsi means “life” or “existence”, literally translating koyaanisqatsi as “chaotic life”.
“If we dig precious things from the land, we will invite disaster.”
“Near the day of Purification, there will be cobwebs spun back and forth in the sky.”
“A container of ashes might one day be thrown from the sky, which could burn the land and boil the oceans.”
Hopi Mythology http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hopi_mythology
THE BOOK OF THE HOPI by Frank Waters, Oswald White Bear Frederick (Illustrator), Frederica H. Howell (Foreword)
Can BALANCE ever be restored to indigenous populations and lands over run by others? Should religions, ideologies, dominance, slavery be imposed on others?
ESCAPE TO INDIA — Kundun — Philip Glass

Is there a BALANCE between opposing estates in our shared universe? Would there be BALANCE in a universe composed only of light, or would that be balanced by a universe of darkness? Can such a BALANCE exist beyond our human perceptions?
According to the Planck mission team, and based on the standard model of cosmology, the total mass–energy of the universe contains 4.9% ordinary matter, 26.8% dark matter and 68.3% dark energy.

DARK MATTER OST — Andries de Haan

Must we purposefully seek light? Or is it possible for humans to find, within our human hearts, a BALANCE of darkness and light?

There is more than ONLY TIME in this song. It is the Book of Job and David Edwards’ slipping out of the present Time that convey a TIMELESS message.
KINGDOM OF ICE — Wovenhand — David Eugene Edwards
Do we think of TIME ONLY as an absence of itself, before there is TIME?

Is TIME the ONLY means of measuring life in it’s passing?

I AM GRATEFUL FOR SO VERY MUCH.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE.
Maddie has chosen ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE as the Music Theme for this week.
It was my turn to choose the Music Theme for this week. The theme is HUNGER.
I decided to limit myself a few longings that cannot be satisfied by ordinary means. Two questions I posed to myself:
What of HUNGER cannot be eased or satisfied by ordinary means?
What longings so ache within as to become HUNGER?
Maddie has chosen MEDITATION for next week. “I’ll go with Meditation as next week’s theme. Seems appropriate as I’ll be in meditation for 2 days at the Gyokusenji Monastery in Sendai, prayer for world peace practice. Much Love♥”
Who does not HUNGER for home, idealized in memory or through anticipation? Is a warm and secure sense of belonging, of being cared for and caring in return, that perhaps never existed, still HUNGERED for, as for sustenance when there is none?
MEHRNOUSH — Zaubersprueche — Faun
In einem dunklen Tal
lag jüngst ich träumend nieder,
da sah ich einen Strahl
von meiner Heimat wieder.
Auf morgenroter Au´
war Vaters Haus gelegen,
wie war der Himmel blau,
die Flur wie reich an Segen!
Wie war mein Heimatland
voll Gold und Rosenhelle!
Doch bald der Traum verschwandt,
Schmerz trat an seine Stelle.
Da irrt´ ich weit hinaus
ins öde Land voll Sehnen,
noch irr´ich, such´das Haus
und find´es nicht vor Tränen.
Who Hungers to fly with the eagles? To soar above the clouds, to be borne aloft, removed from small cares and troubles, free, flying on wings of light? Though we human beings cannot fly with feathers, we can fly with awareness and light.
FLY LIKE AN EAGLE — Gila Antara
Does the human spirit starve without illusion? Is the intense HUNGER for the ideal only a dream of illusions? Is hope an illusion? Can we act purely because it is right to do so, or is courage starved by the HUNGER for hope?
STARVATION — Illusions — Thomas Bergersen
Is there a HUNGER for expression? Is it the HUNGER to have voice? Is the creative urge a means to express still other HUNGERS?
“…. I am the voice of your HUNGER and pain …”
I AM THE VOICE — Celtic Women — Alex Sharpe
Does everyone HUNGER for love in the autumn, as the days wane and darkness lingers? Is love in autumn different from love in the other seasons of the year? Does each season of love have its own special expression? Is love never expressed, actually love? Or is it only HUNGER? IS all love expressed in the same manner?
Does everyone HUNGER for love through out all of the changing seasons of life? Are the fires of love a HUNGER that is banked in some seasons and burning in others?
In the autumn of life, is the HUNGER for lost loves and loves that never came to be, a Hunger that can never be soothed? In the autumn of life is it too late for a grand amour passionné? Does this HUNGER pass?
In the autumn of life there is an aching HUNGER for love that is just as intense in its anguishing loss as any youthful desires, yet unfulfilled.
AUTUMN LOVE –Thomas Bergersen
I have been told that the HUNGER for power is the most insatiable of all addictive HUNGERS.
Not all entities that experience this HUNGER are human beings.

MADDIE: ♪Hunger – Music Themes
When all is HUNGER, when there is nothing but HUNGER, no food, no warmth, no love, no hope, what is left? Only starvation, there is only the HUNGER. Have you ever been close to starvation, so that all was the HUNGER?
Njalkemme — Garmarna
5 min. 3sec.
Njalkemme (Samic or Soumi) = HUNGER
“Lastemååjegeh jeenjesh sjidteme Njaalkeme stuerebe enn åvtesne Moereh aajngesem steerieh, jaamah jïh gahtjah Almetje goh snöölhke mah tjelmehts sjidteme Njaalkemem lea dïhte maam manne damtam Njaalkeme bijre jarka Translation (English): Njaalkeme/Hunger — There are so many caterpillers Hunger, greater now than ever The trees hold their breath, die and fall Man is like a blinded wolf Hunger is all I feel Hunger everywhere” Translation offered by vereno1986 on You Tube.
Eva chose JOURNEY as our Music Theme for this week.
Next week the theme is to be HUNGER.
A JOURNEY that has particular relevance, at this time of the year, as we in the Northern Hemisphere enter the tunnel of winter and darkness, is the JOURNEY all inhabitants of our beautiful Blue World make annually around our star in a spiral dance of the cosmic JOURNEY through space and time, beginning and ending in the same eternal moment as the JOURNEY of awareness, itself, the JOURNEY GYRE.
In my own small sphere, I have to work to remind myself that the autumn and winter seasons are merely a time of transition, not the end. There is no end to this JOURNEY.
Persephone — Dead Can Dance — Lisa Gerrard
Have you ever embarked upon a journey with a glorious destination that turns out to be fantasy? Nowhere are the expected riches or the results that were originally anticipated. Yet the journey itself was of such wonder and freedom that you are changed forever, finding the path followed, the JOURNEY, was all along, the destination.
EL DORADO — Sky World — 2 Steps From Hell
El Dorado The Lost City Gold [FULL DOCUMENTARY …
Can it be that a life begun on the path of an emperor and ending as a laborer can be viewed as a successful JOURNEY? Are there influences on the direction of some lives that are beyond personal control? Does everyone get to choose the particular path that is to be followed?
LUNCH — The Last Emperor – Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Byrne and Cong Su
Is it possible to travel a JOURNEY and not understand the words and descriptions that others use, to not be able to describe one’s experiences, and yet be able to understand internally the essence of what is learned while JOURNEYING in the unknowable?
Punagra, dina jine jane, Punagra de, Punagra, dina ji.
DEVA & PUNAGRA — Faun
Is it possible to sing the world into being? Can a JOURNEY be remembered from the Dreamtime, so that it will exist in the world today? A path is created before, and a path is left behind. However, JOURNEY paths are only temporary, existing while being traversed, until they are again recalled from the Dreamtime and sung into being and walked with song.
DREAMTIME* — Dawn of Time — Makara
Makara = The Seven Sisters (Pleiades constellation)
Is it possible to change the path on which we JOURNEY by changing our selves? Is that internal change enough? What happens when a selfish life has been lived, and consequences are thought of only when encountering the last gate on life’s JOURNEY? Does it matter what influence current and past actions and attitudes have in the future, as we all die anyway? Do we have a responsibility for the consequences of what we do or omit to do?
THE FUTURE — Leonard Cohen
Are destinations, conclusions, honors, awards, endings, triumphs, pinnacles, all that there is? Can these also become locked gates across the direction of one’s JOURNEY? Should one stop and turn to gaze only on what has already been accomplished? Is it possible to simply unlatch the gate and continue on, whether or not accolades and congratulations tie one to past goals? If one has no exact expectations of achievement, what qualities are required to pilgrimage on a path that is, itself, all there is? Are all lives a pilgrimage? Are all JOURNEYS a pilgrimage?
PEREGRINATIO — Irfan
5min. 14 sec.
Does our JOURNEY end with this life? Do we just travel on and on and on?
LESS IS MOI — the Goat Rodeo Sessions — Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile
It seems that some JOURNEYS do not ever end, even as the pathway passes through the opened gates. Is this true for all of us? Do we create with each step, ripples of effect that never end?
DISCOVERY OF INDIA — GANDHI — Ravi Shankar
EVA: All Packed and Ready to Go Forth and Conquer Yourself? Yeah, It’s Journey Time.
MADDIE: ♪The Journey ~ Where Do Your Tracks Lead? Music Themes
Lisa has chosen the new theme for Thursday: “I was thinking distance. I have much to say about that. ”
Csillag-Ős — The Moon And The Nightspirit with guest vocalists Catarina Raposo of Dwelling, Saskia Dommisse of Poets to their Beloved, and Alessandra Santovito of Hexperos
Hungarian and Portuguese and Dutch and Italian
Summer, Vivaldi Recomposed — Max Richter — Daniel Hope — Orchestra L’arte del Mondo Rostock, 2013
Faun — Iduna
We have already passed the solstice and though the heat is still building, here in the Northern hemisphere, we are headed towards autumn and harvests. Fist, and in some cases, second cuttings of hay have already been done and many hot crops (water melons) have been harvested already. Second plantings have been done. Mid-summer hottest stuff growing.. beans, okra, peanuts, sweet potatoes, tobacco … and it’s a hot summer …
Berta, Berta — Branford Marsalis —The Piano Lesson 1990 — August Williams — Charles S. Dutton – Courtney B. Vance – Carl Gordon – Lou Myers
The insect noises in the piece sound just like the noises of hot summer where I live. the lyrics are inviting a prisoner’s sweetheart to find a good man, not in prison, and to go ahead and marry and to have a good life before it is too late. While the prisoners on the chain gang sweat and work and chant/sing.
Faun — Unda
What is summer without water, without waves? And if for you, like for me, the ocean is dream of yesterday, and you can’t even get in the sun, for one reason or another, then you can become the waves, the vibrations. For that is what everything is … resonation.
Unda (Latin) = the Waves
Unda attingit The wave reaches you
Te et abducit And leads you
Te in profunda To the depths.
Sicut es unda. Likewise you are the wave
Blood of the Dragon – Nox Arcana
How can anyone get through summer without slaying a few dragons?
Das Märchen vom Zaren Saltan, Act III, Scene Tableau 1: Orchestral Interlude. Hummelflug — Rimsky Korsikov 1903 — Sergei Rachmaninov piano arrangement and recording Flight of the Bumblebee 1929
Bumble bees, of course, do their work in Summer.
Falkenstein – Sommer
Mermaids — Hans Zimmer—Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides …
Summer is also a time of fantasy and imagination and myths. Or are myths based on some lost truth? Sea-faring cultures from around the world have stories of mermaids.
Faun -Mehrnoush …
Summer seem to enhance the intense nostalgia for childhood home, though the reality may be covered in mist….
