HIDDEN – Music Themes

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?

What is not hidden, at all, though most do not or cannot see?

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?

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?

“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?

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?

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.

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?

JOURNEY — Music Themes

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
6min. 47sec.

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
4min. 20sec.

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
4min. 55sec.

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.
6min. 19sec.

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
6min. 01sec.

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
7min. 10sec.

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?
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
7min. 28sec.

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?

Fragile  —- Sting, Chris Botti, Yo-yo Ma, Dominic Miller

Sting wrote Fragile using his real name of Gordon Sumner

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the color of the evening sun
Tomorrow’s rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay
Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime’s argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are
How fragile we are how fragile we are


Removed the video of the original Sting  Fragile video because I couldn’t skip the advertisement.   The tacky adv. was even inserted into a widget version I saved some time ago.  The tacky adv. didn’t show at first.    Sorry.  Bear
