by NM how easy is it to understand… we often talk about complex matters but everything is next to us and the complex is very simple in reality and it is open to view – just need an eye of an un-obscured-observer. getting grounded is very important as an important part of us lives in this physical reality. like our friend and the only russian catholic priest in melbourne used to say: “poke your finger into the sky but don’t forget to fumble your palm on the ground” nowadays i keep asking my friends: we talk about universe, dna transformation, complex finsler anisotropic geometry postulates, human evolution and mind expansion. how about our everyday physical exercises, our water, our air and our food? how do we look after that part? we people who are often seeking magic need just to look closer to our feet, at the fallen leaves, at the nature, the trees and the landscapes or just see the flower gently opening in the glass on your working desk or a bullfinch in the snow meditatively pecking on bright orange hawthorn berries and observe the glory of its breathtaking image – this is a real magic next to you...
but i was always wondering how we connect the unseen and the physical. say music – it is just a row of mechanical notes the musician or the composer physically touching but the harmony he/she creates wakes up something sacred inside of us which we then project on the physical world by feeling closer to the source and acting from its rules.
“Music: If it has anything at all to do with life its mechanical, lacking ideas or associations. But it goes right to your soul. What chord in us responds to its harmonies? What gives us such pleasure, and unites us, and stirs us so? […] In the long run, everything has a meaning and a season.” “Stalker” movie by Andrei Tarkovski scenario quote on music
or take love. first we create an image, the feeling and we attach our thoughts to it and our understanding of god (ourselves) to it and then it materializes into a live child as final and ultimate love manifestation. i also believe that the stronger and the deeper your feelings the more beautiful and harmonical material image you will get at the end: physically, emotionally and mentally balanced child is an eventual expression of what we feel while we make love to our partner.
and it is always a blend of two (or multiple plains) – physical and spiritual. a poem gets created from nothingness, a feeling and an abstract image of this feeling like an energy. sometimes it is so powerful you can not resist to take a pen and try to describe at least some pale part of it… – you put it on a paper, the other people see it, read it and they get the feeling reflected in their souls as an image or just a simple sensation, sometimes even the aroma or a taste… the impression projected on the reader may turn into a kind deed or a simple smile directed to that person passing the reader by or sometimes it can turn into another creation: say a painting… so the reflection process might never end… and it will always be an exchange that works both ways, and all ways…
