POESIA

H. Marsman

Phoenix

Vlam in mij, laai weer op;
hart in mij, heb geduld, verdubbel het vertrouwen-
vogel in mij, laat zich opnieuw ontvouwen
de vleugelen, de nog moede en grauwe;
o, wiek nu op de verbrande takken
en laat den moed en uwe vaart niet zakken;
het nest is goed, maar het heelal is ruimer.

google would translate this as 

H. Marsman

Phoenix

Flame in me, flare up again;
heart in me, have patience, double confidence
bird in me, unfolds again
the wings, the still weary and gray;
oh, now watch the burned branches
and do not let the courage and your speed drop;
the nest is good, but the universe is wider.

Dulces Pontes: Canção do Mar

Fui bailar no meu batel

Além do mar cruel

E o mar bramindo

Diz que eu fui roubar

A luz sem par

Do teu olhar tão lindo

Vem saber se o mar terá razão

Vem cá ver bailar meu coração

Se eu bailar no meu batel

Nao vou ao mar cruel

E nem lhe digo aonde eu fui cantar

Sorrir, bailar, viver, sonhar contigo

Vem saber se o mar terá razão

Vem cá…

Zadkiel........ which angel will it be?

but you are right, things come as they come, now I can see

"This drunkenness began in some other tavern."

Blindly I arrived, trusting the angel -
perhaps I should have known better
but I'm sure it will be alright in the end
or when they send me on my next assignment.
Perhaps, while I'm still here,
I'll try to find my way around, a bit,
but it seems often better to just take things as they come
don't you think?
I'm sure the angel will be back before long.

POESIA

RUMI

Whoever Brought Me Here

All day I think about it, then at night I say it.
Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing?
I have no idea.
My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that,
and I intend to end up there.

This drunkenness began in some other tavern.
When I get back around to that place,
I’ll be completely sober. Meanwhile,
I’m like a bird from another continent, sitting in this aviary.
The day is coming when I fly off,
but who is it now in my ear who hears my voice?
Who says words with my mouth?

Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul? 
I cannot stop asking.
If I could taste one sip of an answer,
I could break out of this prison for drunks.
I didn’t come here of my own accord, and I can’t leave that way.
Whoever brought me here, will have to take me home.

This poetry. I never know what I’m going to say.
I don’t plan it.
When I’m outside the saying of it,
I get very quiet and rarely speak at all.

Trans. Coleman Barks.

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…

My children, Floor and I have been at Eleusis for a week visiting Dharmavidya. He had had another attack of new embolisms in his lungs a few weeks ago, and had gone to see a specialist at the hospital who then kept him in the hospital for just under a week and was back home the day before we arrived.

When we arrived, he told us of another serious blockage problem. He lives in the countryside, quite remote, and is on…

SUCCESSFUL FIRST ELEUSIS SEMINAR

Posted by David Brazier on March 15, 2019 at 16:59 2 Comments

We have just had our first Eleusis Seminar on the theme of the Philosophy of Taoism.

Sixteen people took part and from immediate feedback it seems to have been a great success.

We shall do more.

There is a second meeting of a more open kind this evening.
