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…

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 6 Comments

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

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…

Zero Limits

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…
