JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS –Music Themes

_________________________________________
_________________________________________
 The Music Theme for this week:  JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS.
__________________________________________
Magical Maddie has picked THEN AND NOW, MUSICAL COVERS for the next Music Theme.
__________________________________________
JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS do not have to do with fairness, who deserves what, legalities, social judgements, or any external thing.  JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS are matters of the spirit.   Covetousness is a symptom of weakness and insecurity.  JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS, together,   are a vulnerability that can be exploited by the powers of evil.  JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS destroy the soul, confuse thinking, corrupt intent and allow the creation of havoc and chaos both within and without.  Jealousy, alone, powered by a weak spirit and insecurity, can also become an exploited vulnerability.  Jealousy must be tempered with generosity and responsibility for consequences.  Those who COVET what is not their own, should be aware that their own COVETOUSNESS is often what gives what they do not have its value.  If that which is desired is somehow obtained, it is often found, even power and relationships, to have had value only in imagination. What the COVETOUS desire is the feeling of acquisition.  In order to maintain the value, in their own eyes, what has been acquired must be jealously guarded so that the value is enhanced by yet more covetousness of others. A vicious cycle. How can this be avoided?

Some deceive themselves by saying that covetousness is merely loneliness or appreciation of some interesting quality, or it is a  need, or that it is only a desire to share with others, when perceived by themselves to not have enough of the necessary goods or status or power or adulation or real estate, or feelings of love, available to share.  Some think it more pleasant to share someone else’s bounty, someone else’s hard work, someone else’s experiences, rather than one’s own. Perhaps it would be more pleasant to take the food, the life, the strength, the memories of some one else for one’s own, to redistribute or keep, as one pleases?  What happens when this attitude is carried over into governments and ideologies and resources? Groups of people are denigrated and dehumanized, lands confiscated and the people forced into dire poverty to be exploited as tools or weapons rather than acknowledging the innate humanity of everyone.

Sometimes we deceive ourselves and say our motives are to jealously care for those we love, or protect our property.  When in reality is that we are covetous of the admiration or love that are inspired in others by goodness or beauty or worthwhile achievement.  That sort of protecting is like trying to guard the rays of the sun and make them shine only in one direction.  Protection of property dehumanizes relationships reducing loved ones to chattel or things, which destroys the jealous guardian’s love, destroying the very qualities that make the illusory possessed desirable.  Love becomes a chore of securing perimeters, of creating screens and veils to hide what is supposedly possessed.   What happens when this attitude is carried over into governments and ideologies and resources? Wars happen.   What must we do?

Like a hawk with a broken wing, when we need help, we must ask for it, loudly.  But  we only want help from those who truly have our mutual welfare and interests at heart., not sources we feel are trying to exploit our vulnerability.   We, like the hawk, have to guard our welfare with jealousy and respond instantly to cries for help, when those for whom we care, call… that is diligent awareness, not obsessive control of others.  Does the hawk covet your possessions?  No. The hawk flies free of such encumbrances.

I wonder if domesticated urbanized humans, are a like penned domestic chickens.  Do trapped humans go a little crazy and attack themselves and each other?  Why are people constantly picking at perceived weakness, including  bodies, and children, loved ones and those called enemies?  Chickens will peck at a wound or open sore on another in the flock, until they kill the vulnerable member.  If the entire is flock is weakened and vulnerable will the chickens attemot to kill everyone? Must all the factory chickens be kept just out of reach of each other by external forces, as in egg factories?  What functions do housing, offices, warehouses, the cyber world perform in modern lives?  Are we brought into contact with each other or are we kept just far enough apart?  Are the majority of humans now being domesticated to live in a monstrous version of the egg factories?
I think we must jealously guard our physical and spiritual freedom with diligent awareness.  No one can afford to be indifferent.

*************************************
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
And eschewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
*************************************
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s

THIS LAND IS MINE —  Reference and original, including an explanation about each character in this video: http://blog.ninapaley.com/2012/10/01/…It tells the story of the wars in the land called Israel/Palestine/Canaan/the Levant, since the cavemen until today, all so musical and poetic. “This Land is Mine” is a video from Nina Paley, originally posted on Vimeo.
In the end of this video appear the text “Copying is an Act of Love, please copy and share. copyheart.org”. So, here it is. Lawrence Lagerlof   music and lyrics by Henry Mancini

This land is mine
God gave this land to me
This brave and ancient land to me
People are doing this sort of thing to each other all over the world, at this very moment. Who gave what land to whom? Is there anyone whose ancestors were not victims or perpetrators or both? What about those of us living now? Are we victims? Perpetrators? Both? What have we bequeathed to our great-grandchildren? What have we done to the animals? What stories do we tell ourselves to justify our actions, or inactions? There are those who even with the disasters of Chernobyl and Fukushima covet control and power over nature and each other with nuclear weapons and electricity generators. I read quotes and hear people say “Nuke ’em!!” How can we be so foolish?

Jealousy and covetousness are woven throughout the ancient Greek myths. Indeed, jealousy and covetousness permeate all of the pantheons of  religious myths. The story of Arachnea and Athena is only one example.

Shakespeare uses the theme of jealousy as a vehicle to show how insecurity with one’s status, relationships can lead to a vulnerability to deception and in the end the destruction of self and that which is being zealously guarded out of weakness rather than trust and strength.

Marvin Gaye’s life story is an American tragedy. This song, I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE, is an example of how insecurity and jealousy were exploited by those who coveted Marvin Gaye’s gifts and work. Sadly, that he understood exactly what was happening seemed to make him even more vulnerable.
Marvin Gaye was shot dead by his own jealous father.  He was not covetous of his son’s work, but jealous of his own beliefs. He felt that his son was not following his own personal standards. His jealous attitude led him to commit a heinous sin. He murdered his own son the day before his forty-fifth birthday.

Loreena McKennitt – Night Ride Across The Caucasus
8min.32sec.

Ride on Through the night
Ride on
Ride on Through the night
Ride on
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
Ride on
Through the night
Ride on
Ride on
Through the night
Ride on
In the velvet of the darkness
By the silhouette of silent trees
They are watching,
They are waiting
They are witnessing life’s mysteriesRide on
Through the night Ride on
Ride on
Through the night Ride on

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

Ride on Through the night
Ride on
Ride on
Through the night Ride on

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

Ride on
Through the night Ride on
Ride on
Through the night Ride on

Ride on
Through the night Ride on
Ride on
Through the night Ride on

TAKE THIS WALTZ — LEONARD COHEN Y FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA

Leonard Cohen tradujo esta letra al inglés para musicalizarlo con ritmo de vals
Pequeño Vals Vienés (*)
Federico García Lorca

En Viena hay diez muchachas,
un hombro donde solloza la muerte
y un bosque de palomas disecadas.
Hay un fragmento de la mañana
en el museo de la escarcha.
Hay un salón con mil ventanas.
¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals, este vals,
este vals con la boca cerrada.

En Viena hay cuatro espejos
donde juegan tu boca y los ecos.
Hay una muerte para piano
que pinta de azul a los muchachos.
Hay mendigos por los tejados,
hay frescas guirnaldas de llanto.
¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals, este vals,
este vals que se muere en mis brazos.

Este vals, este vals, este vals, este vals,
de sí, de muerte y de coñac,
que moja su cola en el mar.
Porque te quiero, te quiero amor mío,
en el desván donde juegan los niños,
soñando viejas luces de Hungría
por los rumores de la tarde tibia,
viendo ovejas y lirios de nieve
por el silencio oscuro de tu frente.
¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals, este vals,
este vals de quebrada cintura.

Este vals, este vals, este vals, este vals,
de sí, de muerte y de coñac,
que moja su cola en el mar.

En Viena bailaré contigo
con un disfraz que tenga cabeza de río.
¡Mira qué orillas tengo de jacintos!
Dejaré mi boca entre tus piernas,
mi alma en fotografías y azucenas,
y en las ondas oscuras de tu andar.
Quiero amor mío, amor mío, dejar
violín y sepulcro, las cintas del vals.
Quiero amor mío, amor mío, dejar
violín y sepulcro, las cintas del vals.
¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals, este vals,
este vals del “te quiero siempre”.

Este vals, este vals, este vals, este vals,
de sí, de muerte y de coñac,
que moja su cola en el mar.

Este vals, este vals, este vals, este vals,
de sí, de muerte y de coñac,
que moja su cola en el mar.

Porque te quiero, te quiero amor mío,
en el desván donde juegan los niños,
soñando viejas luces de Hungría
por los rumores de la tarde tibia …
