SHE’S ALIVE … BEAUTIFUL … FINITE … HURTING … WORTH DYING FOR —  music by Armand Amar —  film footage from Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s  HOME http://www.homethemovie.org/ , also  Greenpeace and http://timescapes.org/  compiled by  Bittu Sahgal at  http://www.sanctuaryasia.com/

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?
LIGHT — Thin Red Line — Hans Zimmer — additional music by Klaus Badelt & John Powell, conducted and compiled by Gavin Greenaway and orchestrated by Bruce Fowler & Yvonne S. Moriarty.

Does love, in all it’s myriad aspects, change our perceptions of death and rebirth?

Is it necessary to die in order to be reborn? Is it possible to be reborn within one lifetime? Is it possible to avoid death? Can death be postponed?  What reasons are there to postpone death?

Can death be a comfort? Can death, itself, be an escape from intolerable circumstances? Can the thought of total annihilation be  soothing?  Is it more desirable to think of nothing, no after life, no rebirth, no enlightenment, no responsiblity, no existence, to be the void, without awareness forever? Is death complete and absolute, with nothing more?  Do sentient beings have a choice?
LONG BLACK DRESS — O Death – http://www.hauskonzerte.com

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?

Have there been countless times of darkness with no life? Have these empty formless expanses already continued into the vastness beyond our awareness that ever will be and already existing before the conception of emptiness?

GENISIS 1:1-2 KJV
The Creation
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Has there been already, in the time before our knowing, an infinity of rebirth through light and life from out of the void?
The First Book of Moses, Called Genesis
GENISIS 1:3-5 KJV
3 ¶ And God said, Let there be light: 2 Cor. 4.6 and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Is it the Human Condition to never know anything for sure within the time of life on Earth? Must there always be an aspect of faith that we are even here together at all?

Is death always a tragedy? Can transcendent beauty be created from the death and suffering, to be enjoyed by others in this life? Are the arts an aspect of rebirth, every time work is created and enjoyed, over an over? Lies Renewed

Brahms’ Lullaby — sung by Chloe Agnew
2min. 34sec.

Innocent children are like stars radiating sparkling warmth and spiritual beauty. How can anyone not be HAPPY in their company? Unless the child is unhappy, then there is a type of selfless joy in doing what can be done for the child’s best interests.

So how is it that the HAPPINESS of children is so easily amplified? A wonder and a mystery for which I am grateful.

God Danced the Day You Were Born — Andrew Lawrence — sung by Hot Soup
2min. 42sec.

My Little Sister sends me a link to this video every year on my birthday, since it was first placed on You Tube. Not only is it a nice remembrance, it makes me HAPPY to listen to this because I know that my sister can sing equally well, a cappella, and she prefers HAPPY, upbeat music for herself, and to share. She has had more than her portion of heartache and tragedy, yet she is of such a strong good heart, that she is always trying to raise the spirits of those close to her.

THUNDERSTRUCK — 2 Cellos

If I am feeling sad or misunderstood or blue, this video cheers me up right away. The concluding applause has not yet failed to evoke a big grin, and at the minimum, from myself, a silent chuckle. Sometimes I laugh out loud.

Δαιμονία Νύμφη Μουσών

The Muses are a source of HAPPINESS by facilitating Voice. Whether perceived and understood, or not, the acts of expression and creation are acts of joy.
In the video clip there is pictured a lovely UNICORN, for Lisa.

Please be fore warned, the last two selections are NOT sweetness and light, nor are they My Little Pony.

Requiem — Mozart
1hr 17min. 12sec.

What did Mozart have to transcend to write this? What did this orchestra have to transcend to perform? What had to be overcome for the venue with the beautiful pipe-organ, to even exist? I am taken to a place outside of HAPPINESS, outside of myself, outside of death, by this performance.

FIRE — OST Angels and Deamons — Hans Zimmer
6min.  52sec.

Sometimes the closest I am able to come to HAPPINESS is to say nothing, and so allow those close to me to retain their own HAPPINESS by not becoming aware that I am present and that I am also not present.
.
I REMAIN SILENT
.
I am present.
I am also not present.
I am an observer
Of myself.
I am a guardian
Of my grief.
I am a
Silent voice,
To preserve
The Wa.
My heart is
Somewhere else.
I only pass through
This pleasant
Landscape
As a guide.
I must move gently
Through your HAPPYNESS,
As the voice
Of my silence
Travels on
To somewhere else,
Another life,
Another time.

THE HEART OF THE UNICORN — Gamma Ray
4min. 47 sec.

When I mentioned to my youngest son, as we were discussing amusing things, that the music theme this week is WHERE THE UNICORNS ARE, he said he knew of a UNICORN song, and would send me a link. He did so, and included this sentence “When life gives you marshmallow unicorns, give life speed metal.”
