Santana – Live In Tokyo 2000 / Supernatural Tour (FULL CONCERT)


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48z01HxVtjA]

Carlos Augusto Alves Santana (Autlán de Navarro, 20 luglio 1947) è un chitarrista e compositore messicano naturalizzato statunitense.

Ha cominciato a riscuotere consensi tra gli anni settanta e ottanta, con il suo gruppo, chiamato semplicemente Santana. Già allora mescolava vari generi, quali salsa,rock classico, blues e fusion. Allora come oggi Santana usava in modo estensivo i suoi assoli di chitarra e si avvaleva anche di strumenti più tradizionali del suo paese. In seguito ha continuato a sperimentare questa formula, tra alterne fortune.

Nel corso degli anni novanta Santana rischiò il declino, scongiurato nel 1999 dall’album Supernatural. Grazie a questo lavoro, il più importante successo della sua carriera, ha fatto conoscere la sua filosofia musicale alle nuove generazioni.

Ha venduto più di 80 milioni di dischi[2] ed è anche considerato tra i migliori chitarristi rock esistenti. La rivista Rolling Stone lo ha inserito nella Lista dei 100 migliori chitarristi secondo Rolling Stone al 20º posto.

Carlos Santana (born July 20, 1947) is a Mexican and American musician who first became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band,Santana, which pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music. The band’s sound featured his melodic, blues-based guitar lines set against Latin and African rhythms featuring percussion instruments such as timbales and congas not generally heard in rock music. Santana continued to work in these forms over the following decades. He experienced a resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s. In 2003 Rolling Stone magazine listed Santana at number 15[2] on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.[3] He has won 10 Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards.[4]

Occhio puro


Horus, Dio dalla testa di Falco, figlio di Iside e Osiride era considerato il Dio della preveggenza. Il suo occhio simboleggia la spietata acutezza dello sguardo giustiziere cui nulla sfugge. Grazie a lui Iside riuscì a vendicare il marito e a scacciare Seth, dando inizio al Regno dei Faraoni.
Secondo la mitologia l’occhio di Horus è l’occhio che “tutto vede” . Veniva impresso all’ingresso delle case, sui sarcofagi e sulle tombe, per contrastare il maligno o per proteggere il viaggio del defunto verso l’aldilà.

Nell’esoterismo egizio le figure terrene, non sono immagini delle realtà corrispondenti, ma funzioni multiple di potenze che attivano un proprio sistema di significanti. Una delle più famose immagini egizie è l’Occhio di Horus nella quale si visualizza l’occhio magico che Osiride, una volta reintegrate le membra disperse da Seth, grazie all’opera di Iside e Neftis, dona al figlio Horus allorquando, emergendo dal mondo della luce velata, la Duat, lo abbraccia trasmettendogli il potere della conoscenza, della consapevolezza e della trasformazione.

Nella rinascita l’Occhio di Horus vira su un piano superiore, anche nel dato numerico, lo smembramento di Osiride e questo processo è registrato nella sua polarizzazione, come mostra il Duplice Occhio di Horus ai lati di Osiride risorto con Corona Atef, nella tomba di Sennedjen, XIX dinastia.

 

 

 

Horus, the falcon-headed God, son of Isis and Osiris was considered the god of foresight. His eye symbolizes the grim avenger acuteness of vision which nothing escapes. Thanks to him, Isis was able to avenge her husband Seth and cast, starting the Kingdom of the Pharaohs.
According to mythology the eye of Horus is the eye that “sees everything”. He was impressed at the entrance of the houses on the sarcophagi and tombs in order to counter the evil or to protect the deceased’s journey to the afterlife.

 

Egyptian esotericism earthly figures, no images match reality, but multiple functions of powers that enable its own system of signifiers. One of the most famous images is the Egyptian Eye of Horus in which you see the magic eye to Osiris, once replenished the members dispersed by Seth, thanks to the work of Isis and Neftis, gives to his son Horus when, emerging from the world the veiled light, the Duat, embraces the power of imparting knowledge, awareness and transformation.

In the Eye of Horus turns rebirth on a higher plane, even in numerical data, the dismemberment of Osiris, and this process is recorded in its polarization, as shown in the Dual Eye of Horus on the sides of Osiris risen with Atef Crown, in the tomb of Sennedjen, Dynasty XIX.

 

Occhio puro – retta visione


Escludendo il mondo esterno, con lo sguardo fisso tra le sopracciglia, i respiri affluenti ed effluenti che fluiscono regolari per le narici, con i sensi, la mente e l’intelletto sotto controllo, giunto alla meta della liberazione, il muni (saggio), gettati via desiderio, paura e ira, è per sempre libero.

Bhagavad Gita (V, 27,28)

“Se dunque il tuo occhio è singolo, tutto il tuo corpo sarà illuminato”.
(Matteo, 6, 22)

(E’ da presumere che le Bibbie più antiche dicessero proprio “occhio singolo”, forma che si trova nella Bibbia di Martin Lutero e ancor oggi nelle traduzioni greche e inglesi. Più tardi, non comprendendo il vero significato della parola, i traduttori cambiarono “singolo” in “semplice” e poi ancora in “puro” N.d.T.). Durante la meditazione profonda, l’occhio unico o spirituale diventa visibile nella parte centrale della fronte. Le scritture si riferiscono in vari modi a questo occhio onnisciente: quale terzo occhio, stella d’Oriente, l’occhio interiore, la colomba che scende dal cielo, l’occhio di Shiva, l’occhio dell’intuizione, ecc.

Paramahansa Yogananda, Autobiografia di uno Yogi. Roma, Astrolabio-Ubaldini Editore, 1971, p. 153

Il corpo fisico ha due occhi – positivo e negativo – a causa della legge della relatività. Il corpo astrale ha soltanto un occhio, variamente chiamato: occhio spirituale, occhio singolo (dalla Bibbia cristiana), terzo occhio (dalla Bibbia indù), stella dell’est, stella di saggezza, colomba che discende dal cielo, occhio interiore, occhio intuitivo, occhio di Shiva, stella attraverso cui vedono i saggi, ecc. Quando fu battezzato dallo Spirito Santo, Gesù lo percepì come un suono cosmico o Cielo, e vide l’occhio spirituale come una colomba.

Il Vangelo di Gesù secondo Paramhansa Yogananda. Volume primo. Edizioni Vidyananda

L’insegnamento giunge solo a indicare la via; ma la visione sarà di colui che avrà voluto vedere. … E’ necessario che l’occhio si faccia uguale all’oggetto per accostarsi a contemplarlo. … Il tuo occhio interiore ha dinnanzi a se una grande bellezza. Ma se cerchi di contemplarla con un occhio ammalato o non pulito, o debole, avrai troppa poca energia per vedere gli oggetti più brillanti e non vedrai nulla, anche se sei dinnanzi ad un oggetto che può essere visto.

Sophia – Plotino. (Commento: qui Sophia potrebbe essere quindi intesa come la saggezza di colui che osserva con occhio singolo, lo stesso che talvolta si scorge durante la meditazione).

Quando la mente si concentra,prima o poi si manifesta un segno.
Questo non e’ per tuttiil medesimo.
Per alcuni potra’ essere una forma come una stella,un diadema di gemmeo un filo di perle.
Altri lo avvertiranno come un fior di loto,la ruota di un carro,il disco della luna,il disco del sole.
Se appare un segno luminoso,non bisogna cominciare a pensarci ne’ dargli attenzione diretta.
Il segno e’ originato dalla percezione.
Percio’ bisogna capire che appare diverso a causa della differenza di percezione.

(Visuddhi Magga)

Non identificatevi … siate un testimone, un osservatore. Allora, se vi riesce di essere testimoni, sarete focalizzati nel terzo occhio. … anche l’opposto è possibile. Se siete focalizzati nel terzo occhio, diventerete un testimone.
… focalizzati nel centro del terzo occhio la vostra immaginazione diventa potente, efficace. Ecco perché si è insistito così tanto sulla purezza …

Rajneesh (Osho) – Il libro dei segreti, Bompiani, 1978, p. 90 e seg.

Lo spazio tra i nostri due occhi (terzo occhio) non è uno spazio delimitato nel vostro corpo fisico. E’ lo spazio infinito che è penetrato in voi. Una volta che questo spazio venga conosciuto, non sarete più la stessa persona. Non appena conoscerete questo spazio interiore, avrete conosciuto l’immortale. Allora non c’è più alcuna morte.

Rajneesh (Osho) – Il libro dei segreti, Bompiani, 1978, p. 217

Se per un’ora al giorno fissi una fiamma e pratichi questa tecnica per alcuni mesi, il tuo terzo occhio inizia a funzionare alla perfezione. Diventi più attento, più luminoso.

Rajneesh (Osho) – Il libro arancione, Mediterranee, 1983, p.109

I Maestri indù hanno insegnato che, per conquistare la più profonda conoscenza, bisogna focalizzare lo sguardo attraverso l’onnisciente occhio spirituale. Quando ci si concentra fortemente, anche chi non sia uno yoghi aggrotta la fronte nel punto fra le sopracciglia: il centro della concentrazione e dello sferico occhio spirituale, sede dell’intuizione dell’anima. Questa è la vera “sfera di cristallo” in cui guarda lo yoghi per apprendere i segreti dell’universo. Coloro che andranno abbastanza profondo nella loro concentrazione penetreranno quel “terzo occhio” e vedranno Dio. I ricercatori della verità dovrebbero perciò sviluppare la facoltà di proiettare la loro percezione attraverso l’occhio spirituale. La pratica dello Yoga aiuta l’aspirante ad aprire l’occhio singolo della coscienza intuitiva.
L’intuizione, o conoscenza diretta, non dipende da alcun dato fornito dai sensi. Per questo la facoltà intuitiva è spesso chiamata il “sesto senso”. Tutti hanno questo sesto senso, ma la maggior parte delle persone non lo sviluppa. Tuttavia, quasi tutti hanno avuto qualche esperienza intuitiva, forse l’intuizione che una determinata cosa sarebbe dovuta accadere, sebbene non ci fosse alcun segno percepibile dai sensi a indicarlo.

Paramahansa Yogananda, L’eterna ricerca dell’uomo. Roma, Astrolabio-Ubaldini Editore, 1980, p. 31-32

Signore, esiste un metodo scientifico, oltre il Kriya, che può portare un devoto a Dio?, s’informò uno studente.”Si”, disse il Maestro. “Una via rapida e sicura che porta all’infinito è quella di tenere la propria attenzione fissa nel centro della Coscienza Cristica fra le sopracciglia”.

Paramahansa Yogananda, Il Maestro disse. Roma, Astrolabio-Ubaldini Editore, 1970, p. 66

Coloro i quali non meditano regolarmente e profondamente sono irrequieti, ovunque essi meditino, e rinunciano dopo un breve sforzo. Ma se voi fate uno sforzo più grande, giorno dopo giorno, verrà l’abilità di immergervi più profondamente. Io non debbo fare alcuno sforzo, adesso; il mondo intero sparisce istantaneamente, quando chiudo i miei occhi e fisso istantaneamente il Centro Cristico (l’occhio spirituale, nella fronte fra le ciglia).
(Paramahansa Yogananda

Ora, vedete, nessun Gesù Cristo viene dall’esterno dentro la visione di nessuno. Nessun Rama, Nessun Krishna, nessun Buddha, nessun Baba Faqir si manifesta da fuori a nessuno. Queste visioni sono fenomeni provocati dalle impressioni e dalle suggestioni che il devoto ha già accolto nella propria mente. Queste impressioni e suggestioni gli appaiono come un sogno. Ma nessuno viene da fuori. Questa è la pura verità.
(Baba Faqir Chand, 1886-1981)

Gli illusi non vedono l’anima quando lascia il corpo e nemmeno quando ci abita dentro. Non si può veder l’anima mentre si gode degli oggetti dei sensi o si agisce mossi dall’attaccamento alle passioni, all’ignoranza o alla purezza. Solo coloro che hanno l’occhio della saggezza vedono.

(Bhagavad Gita 15:10)

Se uno tenesse la propria mente costantemente concentrata nel punto fra le sopracciglia (nel Centro Cristico), vedesse l’occhio spirituale e gli comandasse di ricaricare il corpo d’energia, esso lo farebbe. Facendo questo, la gente smetterebbe d’invecchiare

Paramahansa Yogananda – Alomentazione Yoga – Edizioni Vidyananda

Il terzo occhio non fa parte del corpo fisico, ma del corpo sottile, il secondo corpo, quello interiore.

Osho – I segreti della trasformazione, Bompiani, 2000, p. 150

Quando il terzo occhio si apre per la prima volta, il buio sparirà, e ci sarà luce, una luce senza sorgente. … Per questo le Upanishad dicono che Dio non è come il sole o una fiamma. E’ una luce senza sorgente.

Osho – I segreti della trasformazione, Bompiani, 2000, p. 169, 170

La prima delle otto vie fondamentali del Nobile ottuplice sentiero è la Retta Visione per cui si contempla la realtà così com’è, senza inquinarla coi propri complessi inconsci, abitudini inveterate, pregiudizi, ripugnanze innate, limitazioni caratteriali, memoria automatica ecc.

Le altre vie sono: retto pensiero, retta parola o retto modo di parlare, retta azione o karma, retto comportamento o modo di guadagnarsi la vita, retto sforzo, retta consapevolezza, retta concentrazione o samadhi.

Secondo un moderno maestro occidentale, qui l’aggettivo retto non è usato come contrapposto a sbagliato, secondo il comune modo di pensare dualistico, ma si potrebbe tradurre come “non”, non concetto, non visione. “Eliminando tutti i concetti, si ottiene la retta visione. Procedendo di un passo si elimina anche la non visione.” (Bernie Glassman, “Cerchio Infinito” p. 57, Oscar Mondatori).

“Vedete la pagliuzza nell’occhio del fratello ma non la trave nel vostro. Quando vi sarete tolti la trave dagli occhi allora sarete in grado di togliere la pagliuzza dall’occhio del fratello” (Tommaso, 26).

I concetti sono quelli che distolgono la Retta Visione, i pre-giudizi, i pre-concetti, le idee pre-formate. Tutti guardiamo il mondo attraverso queste lenti deformanti ma non ce ne accorgiamo. Siamo però molto bravi a vedere le lenti, anche piccole, negli occhi degli altri. I nostri concetti, i nostri giudizi sono quelli giusti, quelli veri, quelli saggi; poverino il vicino o il fratello che è costretto a guardare con quella pagliuzza che lo disturba e gli deforma la vista.

Ma “quando vi sarete tolti la trave dagli occhi allora sarete in grado di togliere la pagliuzza dall’occhio del fratello” perché quando cominciamo a vedere rettamente, cioè a vedere eliminando tutti i concetti, aiutiamo tutti coloro che ci sono vicini: fino a quando, però, non vedremo quanto grande sia la trave che ci portiamo dentro l’occhio e in che modo deformato guardiamo il mondo e gli altri, continueremo a sproloquiare di giusto e sbagliato, bianco e nero, morale e non morale e tutti i difetti li vedremo nell’occhio del nostro fratello.

“Il sesto patriarca disse: – Io vedo e non vedo -. Allora Shen-hui chiese: – Maestro, cosa significa “vedere” e “non vedere”? – Il maestro disse: – Io vedo. Vedo sempre le mie trasgressioni e i miei difetti. Per questo dico che vedo. Non vedo. Nel mondo non vedo le trasgressioni e le colpe degli altri. Per questo vedo e non vedo -. (citato in “La Mente allo specchio”, a cura di Leonardo Vittorio Arena, Oscar Mondatori, p.188).


Pure eye – right view

 

Excluding the outside world, his gaze fixed between the eyebrows, the breathing regular tributaries and effluents that flow through the nostrils, with senses, mind and intellect under control, came to the goal of liberation, the muni (sage) cast away desire, fear and anger, is always free.

Bhagavad Gita (V, 27,28)

“Therefore if thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be enlightened.”
(Matthew, 6, 22)

(can be assumed that the oldest Bible say its “single eye” form that is in the Bible of Martin Luther and even today in Greek and English translations. Later on, not understanding the true meaning of the word, the translators changed ” single “in” simple “and then again in” pure “NDT). During deep meditation, or spiritual eye becomes visible only in the middle of the forehead. The records relate in many ways this all-knowing eye: as the third eye, Star of the East, the inner eye, the dove descending from heaven, the eye of Shiva, the eye of intuition, and so on.

Paramahansa Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi. Rome, Astrolabe-Ubaldini Publisher, 1971, p. 153

The physical body has two eyes – positive and negative – because of the law of relativity. The astral body has only one eye, variously called: spiritual eye, single eye (from the Christian Bible), third eye (from the Hindu Bible), Eastern Star, star of wisdom, the dove descending from heaven, inner eye, eye intuitive eye of Shiva, they see the star through essays, etc.. When he was baptized by the Holy Spirit, Jesus perceived it as a cosmic sound or Heaven, and saw the spiritual eye as a dove.

The Gospel of Jesus according to Paramhansa Yogananda. Volume first. Editions Vidyanand

The teaching comes only to show the way, but the vision will be the one who wanted to see. … And ‘necessary that the eye is equal to the face of approaching to contemplate. … Your inner eye has before him a great beauty. But if you try to contemplate it with an eye on sick or not clean, or weak, you have too little energy to see the brightest objects and do not see anything, even if you’re in front of an object which can be seen.

Sophia – Plotinus. (Comment: Sophia here could thus be seen as the wisdom of the observer with a single eye, the same can be seen that sometimes during meditation).

When the mind is focused, sooner or later it shows a sign.
This is not ‘for allThe same.
For some you can ‘be a shape like a star, a tiara gemmeo a string of pearls.
Others will feel like a lotus, the wheel of a wagon, the disc of the moon, the sun’s disc.
If you see a bright sign, do not start thinking about it ‘to give direct attention.
The sign and ‘originated from the perception.
Therefore ‘we must understand that it is different because of the difference in perception.

(Visuddhi Magga)

Do not identify … Be a witness, an observer. So, if you can bear witness, you will be focused in the third eye. … The opposite is also possible. If you are focused in the third eye, you become a witness.
… third eye focused in the center of your imagination becomes a powerful and effective. That’s why we have insisted so much on the purity …

Rajneesh (Osho) – The Book of Secrets, Bompiani, 1978, p. 90 et seq.

The space between our two eyes (third eye) is not a designated area in your physical body. E ‘infinite space that has penetrated you. Once this space is known, you will not be the same person. As soon as you know this inner space, you know the immortal. So there’s no death.

Rajneesh (Osho) – The Book of Secrets, Bompiani, 1978, p. 217

If one hour a day set a fire and practice this technique for several months, your third eye begins to work perfectly. You become more alert, brighter.

Rajneesh (Osho) – The Orange Book, Mediterranee, 1983, p.109

The Hindu masters have taught that in order to gain the deeper knowledge, you must focus your gaze through the omniscient spiritual eye. When you focus strongly, even those who are not a yogi frowns at the point between the eyebrows, the center of the concentration and the spiritual eye ball, the seat of the intuition of the soul. This is the real “crystal ball” in which the yogi looking to learn the secrets of the universe. Those who go deep enough in their concentration will penetrate the “third eye” and I see God seekers of truth should therefore develop the ability to project their perception by the spiritual eye. The practice of Yoga helps the aspirant to open the single eye of intuitive consciousness.
The intuition, or direct knowledge, does not depend on any information provided by the senses. For this reason, the intuitive faculty is often called the “sixth sense”. Everyone has this sixth sense, but most people do not develop it. However, almost everyone has had some experience intuitive, perhaps the intuition that a certain thing was supposed to happen, although there was no sign to indicate perceptible to the senses.

Paramahansa Yogananda, The eternal human search. Rome, Astrolabe-Ubaldini Publisher, 1980, p. 31-32

Lord, there is a scientific method, as well as the Kriya, which can lead a devotee to God?, He asked one student. “Yes,” said the Master. “A quick and safe way that takes forever is to keep its attention fixed in the center of Christ Consciousness between the eyebrows.”

Paramahansa Yogananda, The Master said. Rome, Astrolabe-Ubaldini Publisher, 1970: 66

Those who do not meditate regularly and are deeply restless, wherever they meditate and give up after a short effort. But if you make a greater effort, day after day, will be the ability to dive deeper. I should not make any effort, now, the whole world disappears instantly, when I close my eyes and instantly fixed the Christ center (the spiritual eye, the forehead between the eyebrows).
(Paramahansa Yogananda

Now, you see, no Jesus Christ is outside the vision of anyone inside. Rama No, no Krishna, no Buddha, no Baba Faqir is obvious to anyone outside. These visions are phenomena caused by the impressions and suggestions that the devotee has already accepted in his own mind. These impressions and suggestions to appear like a dream. But no one from outside. This is the truth.
(Baba Faqir Chand, 1886-1981)

The deluded do not see when the soul leaves the body and even when we live within. You can not see the soul while you enjoy the sense objects or acts motivated by an adherence to the passions, ignorance or purity. Only those who have seen the wisdom eye.

(Bhagavad Gita 15:10)

If one held one’s mind constantly focused at the point between the eyebrows (the Christ center), the spiritual eye could see, and commanded him to recharge the body of energy, it would. By doing this, people would stop getting old

Paramahansa Yogananda – Alomentazione Yoga – Edizioni Vidyanand

The third eye is not part of the physical body, but the subtle body, the second body, the inner one.

Osho – The secrets of transformation, Bompiani, 2000, p. 150

When the third eye opens for the first time, the darkness will disappear, and there will be light, a light without a source. … This is why the Upanishads say God is not like the sun or a flame. It ‘s a light without a source.

Osho – The secrets of transformation, Bompiani, 2000, p. 169, 170

The first of the eight basic ways of the Noble Eightfold Path is the right understanding for which we contemplate reality as it is, without polluting it with their own complex unconscious, ingrained habits, prejudices, innate repugnance, character restrictions, automatic memory etc..

Other ways are: right thought, right speech and right way of speaking, right action, or karma, right conduct or way of earning a living, right effort, right mindfulness, right concentration or samadhi.

According to a Western modern master, here the right adjective is not used as opposed to wrong, according to the common dualistic way of thinking, but could be translated as “no”, no concept, no vision. “By removing all the concepts, you get the right view. Going a step will also remove the non-vision. “(Bernie Glassman,” Infinite Circle “p. 57, Oscar Mondadori).

“You see the mote in your brother but not the beam in yours. When you removed the beam from his eyes then you will be able to take the speck out of his brother (Thomas 26).

The concepts are those who turn aside the right understanding, the prejudices, pre-concepts, pre-formed ideas. All these we see the world through distorting lenses but do not realize it. However, we are very good at seeing the slow, however small, in the eyes of others. Our concepts, our judgments are the right ones, real ones, wise ones, the poor or near his brother who is forced to watch with the straw that disturbs and distorts the view.

But “when you have removed the beam from his eyes then you will be able to take the speck out of his brother” because when we begin to see rightly, that eliminating all concepts see, we help all those who are close to us: as long as However, we do not see how big the beam that we carry inside the eye and how warped look at the world and others, continue to rant about right and wrong, black and white, moral and not moral flaws and all them we will see in the eye of our brother.

“The Sixth Patriarch said: – I see and I do not see -. Shen-hui, then asked: – Master, what does “see” and “not see”? – The master said: – I see. I always see my transgressions and my faults. For this reason I say that I see. I can not wait. In the world I do not see the transgressions and sins of others. To see this and I do not see -. (Quoted in “The Mind of the mirror,” by Leonardo Vittorio Arena, Oscar Mondadori, p.188).

Pensieri d’amore


>pensieri spirituali di meher bada

Pensieri d’amore.

“Di certe persone abitate dall’odio, dalla violenza e dallo
spirito di distruzione, si dice che dovunque passino non ricresce
più l’erba. Questa immagine è ovviamente simbolica, ma non è
esagerata. Altri esseri, invece, che sono abitati dall’amore e
dalla bontà, lasciano dappertutto impronte veramente benefiche, e
chi si trova a passare per quei luoghi dopo di loro si sente
illuminato, riscaldato, vivificato. Allora, il fatto di conoscere
questa verità, non vi ispira la volontà di manifestarvi ovunque
come una presenza benefica? In tutti i luoghi in cui vi trovate,
almeno per qualche istante pensate a pronunciare gli auspici
migliori: “Che tutti coloro che verranno qui siano toccati dalla
luce! Poiché sono tutti figli di Dio, sia trasmesso loro il
desiderio di lavorare per la pace, per la fratellanza!”
Direte che nessuno vi ha mai paralato di una pratica simile. Ma
per quale ragione è necessario che qualcuno ve ne parli? È forse
necessario suggerirvi di desiderare le cose migliori per gli
esseri a voi cari? No, lo fate spontaneamente, perché i vostri
sentimenti vi spingono a farlo. Allora, perché non pensare
spontaneamente a formulare i migliori auspici anche per il mondo
intero?”

Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov

Pensieri spirituali di Meher Baba

Affinché l’umanità rinasca, bisogna che si schiuda il cuore dell’uomo perché vi nasca un amore nuovo: un amore che non conosce corruzione ed è assolutamente libero dall’avidità sia individuale che collettiva.

<3<3<3<3

La Nuova Umanità prenderà vita grazie a un’effusione di amore di smisurata abbondanza, e una simile elargizione di amore può solamente sgorgare dal risveglio spirituale suscitato dai Maestri Perfetti.

<3<3<3<3

L’amore è sostanzialmente contagioso: chi non ne ha lo prende da chi lo ha. Chi riceve Amore da altri non può non dare una risposta che è della natura stessa dell’amore.

<3<3<3<3

L’amore vero è invincibile: si rafforza e si espande fino a trasformare, alla fine, tutti quelli che tocca. L’umanità raggiungerà un nuovo modo di essere e di vivere mediante lo scambio libero e insopprimibile di amore puro tra cuore e cuore.

<3<3<3<3

Grazie all’amore divino la Nuova Umanità apprenderà l’arte di una vita armoniosa e collaborativa. Si libererà dalla tirannia delle forme morte e effonderà la vita creativa della saggezza spirituale; abbandonerà tutte le illusioni e si consoliderà nella Verità; godrà pace e perenne felicità; sarà iniziata alla vita dell’Eternità.

<3<3<3<3

L’Amore puro non è una cosa che si può imporre, né sottrarre a un altro con la forza. Deve manifestarsi dal di dentro con piena spontaneità. Quello che si può ottenere con una decisione audace è l’eliminazione di quei fattori che impediscono all’amore di manifestarsi.

<3<3<3<3

L’amore è la cosa più significativa della vita. Non può essere risvegliato che dal contatto con l’Incarnazione dell’amore. Meditazioni teoriche sull’amore potranno tessere una teoria al riguardo, ma il cuore rimarrà vuoto come prima. Amore genera amore; non lo si può risvegliare con alcun mezzo meccanico.

<3<3<3<3

Nello stato Aldilà, dal quale deriva l’universo intero e nel quale in fine esso si fonde, Dio è Amore infinito eternamente.

<3<3<3<3

Nella sfera mentale l’amore si esprime come completa rassegnazione alla volontà di Dio, l’Amato. Ogni desiderio egoistico è scomparso, comprese il volere intensamente la presenza dell’Amato, poiché l’enfasi ora è unicamente sul valore e la volontà dell’Amato e dell’unione con Lui.

<3<3<3<3

L’amore diventa consapevolmente infinito sia nell’essere che nell’espressione quando è trascesa la mente individuale. Questo amore può a ragione essere chiamato divino, perché è caratteristico dello stato di Dio nel quale ogni dualità è finalmente superata.

<3<3<3<3

La vita e l’amore sono inseparabili l’uno dall’altra. Dove c’è vita, c’è amore.

Thoughts of love.

“In some people live by hatred, violence and
spirit of destruction, it is said that wherever not pass grows
more grass. This image is obviously symbolic, but it is not
exaggerated. Other things, however, which are inhabited by love and
goodness, they leave footprints everywhere really beneficial, and
who is to go after them for those places you hear
lighted, heated, brought to life. So, the fact of knowing
this truth, there inspires the desire to express to anywhere
as a beneficial presence? In all the places where you are,
at least for a moment think about pronouncing the auspices
best: “Let all those who come here are touched by
light! Since they are all children of God, is transmitted to them
desire to work for peace, brotherhood! “
You say that nobody has ever paralic a similar practice. But
why must you talk to someone? It is perhaps
necessarily suggest a desire for better things
beings to you dear? No, you do so voluntarily, because your
feelings push you to do so. So why not think
spontaneously to express my best wishes for the world
whole? “

Mikhael Omraam Aïvanhov


Spiritual Thoughts of Meher Baba

That humanity is reborn, we must that opens the human heart, because there arises a new love, a love that knows no corruption and is absolutely free from greed both individual and collective.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

The New Humanity will come to life thanks to an outpouring of love of boundless abundance, and a similar outpouring of love can only spring from the spiritual awakening sparked by Perfect Masters.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Love is essentially contagious: those who do not take it from whoever has it. Those who receive love from others can not give an answer that is the nature of love.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

True love is invincible: strengthens and expands to transform the end, all those it touches. Humanity will reach a new way of being and living through the free exchange of love and irrepressible pure of heart and heart.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Through divine love the new humanity will learn the art of living a harmonious and cooperative. It will free from the tyranny of dead forms and poured out the creative life of spiritual wisdom, abandon all illusions and will strengthen the Truth will enjoy peace and everlasting happiness will be started in the life of Eternity.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Pure love is not something that can be imposed, nor subtract from another with force. It must be seen from the inside with complete spontaneity. What can be achieved with a bold decision is to eliminate those factors that prevent love to manifest.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Love is the most important thing in life. It can not be awakened by contact with the incarnation of love. Theoretical meditations on love can build a theory on this, but my heart will remain empty as before. Love begets love, it can not be awakened by any mechanical means.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Beyond state, under whom the entire universe and where it merges in the end, God is infinite Love eternally.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

The mental and love is expressed as a full resignation to the will of God, the Beloved. Every selfish desire has disappeared, including the intensely will the presence of the Beloved, since the emphasis is now solely on the value and the will of the Beloved, and union with Him

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Love becomes conscious being who is infinite in the expression is transcended when the individual mind. This love can rightly be called divine, because it is characteristic of the rule of God in which all duality is finally over.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Life and love are inseparable from each other. Where there is life, there is love.

The Best of the Doors [Full Album]


I Doors sono stati un gruppo musicale statunitense, fondato nel 1965 da Jim Morrison (cantante), Ray Manzarek (tastierista), Robby Krieger (chitarrista) e John Densmore (batterista), e scioltosi definitivamente dopo otto anni di carriera effettiva nel 1973[2], due anni dopo la morte di Jim Morrison (avvenuta il 3 luglio del 1971).

Sono considerati uno dei gruppi più influenti e controversi nella storia della musica, alla quale hanno unito con successo elementi blues, psichedelia[2] e jazz[3][4]. Molti dei loro brani, come Light My Fire, The End, Hello, I Love You e Riders on the Storm, sono considerati dei classici e sono stati reinterpretati da numerosi artisti delle generazioni successive.

I Doors hanno venduto più di 100 milioni di dischi in tutto il mondo.[5][6] Tre album in studio della band, The Doors (1967), L.A. Woman (1971) e Strange Days (1967), sono presenti nella lista dei 500 migliori album, rispettivamente alle posizioni 42, 362 e 407. Nel 1993 i Doors furono inseriti nella Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Doors

The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore. The band took its name from the title of Aldous Huxley’s book The Doors of Perception,[2] which itself was a reference to a William Blake quote: “If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite.”[3] They were among the most controversial, influential and unique rock acts of the 1960s, mostly because of Morrison’s lyrics and charismatic but unpredictable stage persona. After Morrison’s death on 3 July 1971, aged 27, the remaining members continued as a trio until disbanding in 1973.[4]

Signing with Elektra Records in 1966, the Doors released eight albums between 1967 and 1971. All but one hit the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 and went platinum or better. The 1967 release of The Doors was the first in a series of top ten albums in the United States, followed by Strange Days (1967), Waiting for the Sun (1968), The Soft Parade (1969), Morrison Hotel (1970), Absolutely Live (1970) and L.A. Woman (1971), with 20 Gold, 14 Platinum and 5 Multi-Platinum album awards in the United States alone.[5] The band had three million-selling singles in the U.S.—”Light My Fire”, “Hello, I Love You” and “Touch Me”. After Morrison’s death in 1971, the surviving trio released two albums Other Voices and Full Circle with Manzarek and Krieger sharing lead vocals. The three members also collaborated on the spoken-word recording of Morrison’s An American Prayer in 1978 and on the “Orange County Suite” for a 1997 boxed set. Manzarek, Krieger and Densmore reunited in 2000 for an episode of VH1’s “Storytellers” and subsequently recorded Stoned Immaculate: The Music of the Doors with a variety of vocalists.

Although the Doors’ active career ended in 1973, their popularity has persisted. According to the RIAA, they have sold 33 million certified units in the US[6] and over 100 million records worldwide,[7] making them one of the best-selling bands of all time.[8] The Doors have been listed as one of the greatest artists of all time by many magazines, including Rolling Stone, which ranked them 41st on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[9] The Doors were the first American band to accumulate eight consecutive gold and platinum LPs.[10]

In 2002 Manzarek and Krieger started playing together again, branding themselves as the Doors of the 21st Century, with Ian Astbury of the Cult on vocals. Densmore opted to sit out and, along with the Morrison estate, sued the duo over proper use of the band’s name and won. After a short time as Riders On the Storm, they settled on the name Manzarek-Krieger and continued to tour until Manzarek’s death in 2013 at the age of 74.

Three of the band’s studio albums, The Doors (1967), L.A. Woman (1971), and Strange Days (1967), were featured in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, at positions 42, 362 and 407 respectively.

The band, their work, and Morrison’s celebrity are considered important to the counterculture of the 1960s.[11][12][13][14][15]

The Doors were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.

David Bowie Greatest Hits | Best Songs Of David Bowie (Full Album 2015)


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbyNyjSzxAg%5D]

David Bowie, [ˈboʊi]; pseud. di David Robert Jones (Londra, 8 gennaio 1947), è un cantautore, polistrumentista, attore e compositore britannico.

Attivo dalla metà degli anni sessanta, Bowie ha attraversato cinque decenni della musica rock, reinventando nel tempo il suo stile e la sua immagine e creando alter ego come Ziggy Stardust, Halloween Jack, Nathan Adler, e The Thin White Duke (noto in Italia come il “Duca Bianco”). Dal folk acustico all’elettronica, passando attraverso il glam rock, il soul e il krautrock, David Bowie ha lasciato tracce che hanno influenzato molti artisti.[1]

Come attore, dopo alcune piccole apparizioni ha avuto un ottimo successo nel 1976 come protagonista del film di fantascienza L’uomo che cadde sulla Terra di Nicolas Roeg. Tra le sue interpretazioni più note si ricordano Furyo (Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence) di Nagisa Oshima del 1983, Absolute Beginners e Labyrinth del 1986 e Basquiat di Julian Schnabel del 1996 nel quale interpreta il ruolo di Andy Warhol.

David Bowie è sposato dal 1992 con la modella somala Iman Mohamed Abdulmajid ed ha due figli, Duncan Zowie Haywood (nato nel 1971 dal precedente matrimonio con Mary Angela Barnett) e Alexandria Zahra (nata nel 2000), oltre a Zulekha, nata dal precedente matrimonio di Iman. Nel 2008 è stato inserito al 23º posto nella lista dei 100 migliori cantanti secondo Rolling Stone[2], e tra le sue migliori “tracce vocali” ci sono Life on Mars?, Space Oddity, Starman ed Heroes[3]. Nel 2007 è secondo la rivista Forbes al quarto posto nell’elenco dei cantanti più ricchi del mondo[4].

Al ritmo di un disco all’anno, Bowie per parecchi anni nel bene e nel male non si è mai limitato a creare un “marchio Bowie” uguale a se stesso e rassicurante: dalle nostalgie beat con Pin Ups, agli incubi orwelliani di Diamond Dogs, al R&B bianco con Station to Station e Young Americans, all’electro pop intellettuale che, secondo molti critici, costituirà la fase più creativa della sua carriera fra il 1977 e il 1979, con la cosiddetta trilogia berlinese di Low, Heroes e Lodger, album in realtà (salvo il secondo) realizzati solo parzialmente a Berlino, ma comunque fortemente influenzati dalle contaminazioni tra rock ed elettronica di cui erano maestri i Kraftwerk e i Neu!, gruppi entrambi tedeschi.

Decisivo l’incontro con Brian Eno, altro reduce dal glam-rock dei primi settanta con i Roxy Music del dandy Bryan Ferry. Altrettanto decisivo un successo ormai consolidato che permette all’artista di sperimentare soluzioni nuove senza inseguire il riscontro commerciale. Nel frattempo il personaggio non è più l’androgino Ziggy Stardust ma un thin white duke (sottile duca bianco) dalle inquietanti suggestioni androgine sotto uno stile musicale esteriormente sempre più virile, colto, e raffinato.

https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Bowie
David Bowie (/ˈboʊ.i/;[1] born David Robert Jones, 8 January 1947) is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, arranger, and actor. He is also a painter and collector of fine art.[2] Bowie has been a major figure in the world of popular music for over four decades, and is renowned as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. He is known for his distinctive baritone voice as well as the intellectual depth and eclecticism of his work. Aside from his musical abilities, he is recognised for his androgynous beauty, which was an iconic element to his image, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s.[3][4]

Bowie first caught the eye and ear of the public in July 1969 when his song “Space Oddity” reached the top five of the UK Singles Chart. After a three-year period of experimentation he re-emerged in 1972 during the glam rock era with the flamboyant, androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust, spearheaded by the hit single “Starman” and the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Bowie’s impact at that time, as described by biographer David Buckley, “challenged the core belief of the rock music of its day” and “created perhaps the biggest cult in popular culture.”[5] The relatively short-lived Ziggy persona proved merely one facet of a career marked by continual reinvention, musical innovation and striking visual presentation.

In 1975, Bowie achieved his first major American crossover success with the number-one single “Fame” and the hit album Young Americans, which the singer characterised as “plastic soul”. The sound constituted a radical shift in style that initially alienated many of his UK devotees. He then confounded the expectations of both his record label and his American audiences by recording the minimalist album Low (1977)—the first of three collaborations with Brian Eno over the next two years. Low, “Heroes”, and Lodger, the so-called “Berlin Trilogy” albums, all reached the UK top five and received lasting critical praise. After uneven commercial success in the late 1970s, Bowie had UK number ones with the 1980 single “Ashes to Ashes”, its parent album Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps), and “Under Pressure”, a 1981 collaboration with Queen. He then reached a new commercial peak in 1983 with Let’s Dance, which yielded several hit singles. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Bowie continued to experiment with musical styles, including blue-eyed soul, industrial, adult contemporary, and jungle. He has not toured since the 2003–04 Reality Tour and has not performed live since 2006. Bowie’s latest studio album The Next Day was released in March 2013.

David Buckley says of Bowie: “His influence has been unique in popular culture—he has permeated and altered more lives than any comparable figure.”[5] In the BBC’s 2002 poll of the 100 Greatest Britons, Bowie was placed at number 29. Throughout his career, he has sold an estimated 140 million albums.[6] In the UK, he has been awarded nine Platinum album certifications, 11 Gold and eight Silver, and in the US, five Platinum and seven Gold certifications. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him 39th on their list of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time”, and 23rd on their list of the best singers of all time.

U2 The Best of 1980-1990: New Year’s Day



Gli U2 sono un gruppo musicale irlandese formatosi a Dublino nel 1976. Il gruppo è composto da Paul David Hewson in arte Bono (cantante), David Howell Evans in arte The Edge (chitarrista), Adam Clayton (bassista) e Larry Mullen Jr. (batterista).

Nella loro carriera hanno venduto 150 milioni di dischi[7] e ricevuto il maggior numero di Grammy Awards per un gruppo, con 22 premi[8].

Nel 2005, appena raggiunto il termine minimo dei 25 anni di carriera, sono stati introdotti nella Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Fin dagli esordi, gli U2 si sono occupati della questione irlandese e del rispetto per i diritti civili, improntando su questi temi anche buona parte della loro attività artistica. Inoltre gli U2 sono tra i pochi gruppi internazionali a potersi vantare di aver sempre mantenuto la propria formazione originale.

https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/U2

U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976, the group consists of Bono (vocals and guitar), The Edge (guitar, keyboards, and vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen Jr. (drums and percussion). U2’s early sound was rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from many genres of popular music. Throughout the group’s musical pursuits, they have maintained a sound built on melodic instrumentals. Their lyrics, often embellished with spiritual imagery, focus on personal themes and sociopolitical concerns.

The band formed at Mount Temple Comprehensive School in 1976 when the members were teenagers with limited musical proficiency. Within four years, they signed with Island Records and released their debut album Boy. By the mid-1980s, U2 had become a top international act. They were more successful as a touring act than they were at selling records until their 1987 album The Joshua Tree which, according to Rolling Stone, elevated the band’s stature “from heroes to superstars”.[1] Reacting to musical stagnation and criticism of their earnest image and musical direction in the late-1980s, U2 reinvented themselves with their 1991 album, Achtung Baby, and the accompanying Zoo TV Tour; they integrated dance, industrial, and alternative rock influences into their sound, and embraced a more ironic and self-deprecating image. They embraced similar experimentation for the remainder of the 1990s with varying levels of success. U2 regained critical and commercial favour in the 2000s with the records All That You Can’t Leave Behind (2000) and How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb (2004), which established a more conventional, mainstream sound for the group. Their U2 360° Tour from 2009–2011 was the highest-attended and highest-grossing concert tour in history.

U2 have released 13 studio albums and are one of the world’s best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 170 million records worldwide.[2] They have won 22 Grammy Awards, more than any other band; and, in 2005, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility. Rolling Stone ranked U2 at number 22 in its list of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time”, and labelled them the “Biggest Band in the World”.[3] Throughout their career, as a band and as individuals, they have campaigned for human rights and philanthropic causes, including Amnesty International, the ONE/DATA campaigns, Product Red, and The Edge’s Music Rising.

I Quattordici Addestramenti alla Consapevolezza di Thich Nhat Hanh


buddha1

I Quattordici Addestramenti alla Consapevolezza di Thich Nhat Hanh
Il Primo Addestramento: Apertura
Consapevoli della sofferenza creata dal fanatismo e dall’intolleranza, siamo determinati a non idolatrare e a non vincolarci a nessuna dottrina, teoria o ideologia, neppure a quelle buddhiste. Gli insegnamenti buddhisti sono guide che ci aiutano a imparare il guardare in profondità e a sviluppare comprensione e compassione. Non sono dottrine per cui combattere, uccidere o morire.

Il Secondo Addestramento: Non Attaccamento alle Opinioni
Consapevoli della sofferenza creata dall’attaccamento alle opinioni e alle percezioni erronee, siamo determinati a non avere una mente ristretta, legata alle opinioni attuali. Impareremo e praticheremo il non attaccamento alle opinioni, per essere aperti alla visione profonda e alle esperienze degli altri. Siamo consapevoli che la conoscenza del momento non è l’immutabile e assoluta verità. La verità si trova nella vita e noi osserveremo la vita dentro e intorno a noi in ogni momento, pronti a imparare da essa.

Il Terzo Addestramento: Libertà di Pensiero
Consapevoli della sofferenza che causiamo imponendo le nostre opinioni, ci impegniamo a non forzare gli altri, neppure i nostri figli, ad adottare le nostre opinioni con alcun mezzo: autorità, minacce, denaro, propaganda o indottrinamento. Rispetteremo il diritto degli altri di essere diversi e di scegliere in cosa credere e come decidere. Tuttavia, con il dialogo compassionevole, aiuteremo gli altri a rinunciare al fanatismo e alla ristrettezza mentale.

Il Quarto Addestramento: Consapevolezza della Sofferenza
Consapevoli che guardare in profondità la natura della sofferenza ci aiuta a sviluppare la compassione e a trovare modi per uscire dalla sofferenza, siamo determinati a non fuggire e a non chiudere gli occhi di fronte alla sofferenza. Ci impegniamo a trovare modi, compresi contatti personali, immagini e suoni, per stare con coloro che soffrono, per capirne profondamente la situazione e aiutarli a trasformare la sofferenza in compassione, pace e gioia.

Il Quinto Addestramento: Vita Semplice e Sana
Consapevoli che la vera felicità si fonda sulla pace, la stabilità, la libertà e la compassione, siamo determinati a non porci come scopo della vita la fama, il profitto, il benessere o il piacere sensuale, a non accumulare ricchezza, mentre ci sono milioni di esseri che hanno fame e muoiono. Ci impegniamo a vivere con semplicità e a condividere tempo, energia e risorse materiali con chi ne ha bisogno. Praticheremo il consumo consapevole, non usando alcol, droghe o altri prodotti che introducano tossine in noi stessi, così come nel corpo e nella coscienza collettivi.

Il Sesto Addestramento: Prendersi Cura della Rabbia
Consapevoli che la rabbia blocca la comunicazione e crea sofferenza, siamo determinati a prenderci cura dell’energia della rabbia quando sorge e a riconoscerne e trasformarne i semi che giacciono nel profondo delle nostre coscienze. Quando sorge la rabbia, siamo determinati a non fare e a non dire nulla, praticando invece il respiro consapevole e la meditazione camminata, per riconoscere , abbracciare e guardare in profondità la rabbia. Impareremo a guardare con gli occhi della compassione coloro che pensiamo siano la causa della nostra rabbia.

Il Settimo Addestramento: Dimorare Felicemente nel Momento Presente
Consapevoli che la vita è disponibile solo nel momento presente e che è possibile vivere felicemente qui e ora, ci impegniamo ad addestrarci per vivere profondamente ogni momento della nostra vita quotidiana. Non ci faremo trasportare dai rimpianti del passato, dalle preoccupazioni per il futuro, o dall’avidità, dalla rabbia e dalla gelosia nel presente. Siamo determinati ad imparare l’arte del vivere consapevole, entrando in contatto con gli elementi meravigliosi, vitali e salutari che esistono in noi e intorno a noi, e nutrendo i semi di gioia, pace, amore e comprensione in noi stessi, per facilitare il lavoro di trasformazione e di guarigione della nostra coscienza.

L’Ottavo Addestramento: Comunità e Comunicazione
Consapevoli che la mancanza di comunicazione porta sempre divisione e sofferenza, ci impegniamo ad addestrarci nella pratica dell’ascolto compassionevole e della parola amorevole. Impareremo ad ascoltare in profondità, senza giudicare o reagire, e ci asterremo dal pronunciare parole che possano causare discordia o divisioni nella comunità. Faremo ogni sforzo per mantenere aperta la comunicazione e per ricomporre e risolvere tutti i conflitti, per quanto piccoli.

Il Nono Addestramento: Parola Veritiera e Amorevole
Consapevoli che le parole possono creare sofferenza o felicità, ci impegniamo a imparare a parlare in modo veritiero e costruttivo, usando solo parole che ispirino speranza e fiducia. Siamo determinati a non dire il falso per salvare interessi personali o per impressionare gli altri e a non pronunciare parole che causino divisione e odio. Non diffonderemo notizie di cui non siamo certi e non condanneremo cose di cui non siamo sicuri. Faremo del nostro meglio per denunciare situazioni di ingiustizia, anche quando ciò minacci la nostra incolumità.

Il Decimo Addestramento: Proteggere il Sangha
Consapevoli che l’essenza e lo scopo di un Sangha è la pratica della comprensione e della compassione, ci impegniamo a non usare la comunità buddhista per profitto personale e a non trasformare la nostra comunità in uno strumento politico. Tuttavia, una comunità spirituale dovrebbe prendere una chiara posizione contro l’oppressione e l’ingiustizia e dovrebbe lottare per cambiare la situazione, senza impegnarsi in conflitti di parte.

L’Undicesimo Addestramento: Retti Mezzi di Sostentamento
Consapevoli che l’ambiente e la società hanno subìto grandi violenze e ingiustizie, ci impegniamo a non vivere di una professione dannosa per gli esseri umani e per la natura. Faremo del nostro meglio per scegliere un mezzo di sostentamento che aiuti a realizzare il nostro ideale di comprensione e di compassione. Consapevoli dell’economia globale e della realtà politica e sociale, ci comporteremo in modo responsabile come consumatori e come cittadini, non investendo in aziende che privino gli altri della possibilità di vivere.

Il Dodicesimo Addestramento: Rispetto per la Vita
Consapevoli che molta sofferenza viene causata da guerre e conflitti, siamo determinati a coltivare la nonviolenza, la comprensione e la compassione nelle nostre vite quotidiane, per promuovere l’educazione alla pace, la mediazione consapevole e la riconciliazione nelle famiglie, nelle comunità, nelle nazioni e nel mondo. Siamo determinati a non uccidere e a non permettere che altri uccidano. Con il nostro Sangha praticheremo diligentemente il guardare in profondità, per scoprire modi migliori per proteggere la vita e prevenire la guerra.

Il Tredicesimo Addestramento: Generosità
Consapevoli della sofferenza causata da sfruttamento, ingiustizia sociale, furto e oppressione, ci impegniamo a coltivare la gentilezza amorevole e ad imparare modi per favorire il benessere di persone, animali, piante e minerali. Praticheremo la generosità, condividendo tempo, energie e risorse materiali con coloro che ne hanno bisogno. Siamo determinati a non rubare e a non possedere nulla che appartenga ad altri. Rispetteremo la proprietà altrui, ma cercheremo di impedire che altri traggano profitto dalla sofferenza umana e dalla sofferenza di altri esseri.

Il Quattordicesimo Addestramento: Retta Condotta
Consapevoli che le relazioni sessuali motivate dall’avidità non riescono a dissipare il sentimento di solitudine, ma creano maggior sofferenza, frustrazione e isolamento, siamo determinati a non intraprendere relazioni sessuali senza reciproca comprensione, amore e impegno a lungo termine. Nelle relazioni sessuali dobbiamo essere consapevoli della sofferenza che potremmo causare in futuro. Sappiamo che, per proteggere la felicità nostra e degli altri, dobbiamo rispettare i diritti e gli impegni nostri e degli altri. Faremo tutto quanto è in nostro potere per proteggere i bambini dagli abusi sessuali e per proteggere coppie e famiglie dalle rotture dovute a una condotta sessuale scorretta. Tratteremo il nostro corpo con rispetto e conserveremo le energie vitali (del sesso, del respiro e dello spirito) per la realizzazione del nostro ideale di bodhisattva. Saremo pienamente consapevoli della responsabilità di nuove vite e mediteremo sul mondo in cui intendiamo fare nascere nuovi esseri.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Monaco zen vietnamita, poeta e costruttore di pace, è oggi insieme al Dalai Lama una delle figure più rappresentative del Buddhismo nel mondo.

Nato in Vietnam centrale nel 1926, ordinato monaco all’età di 16 anni, ha operato fin dalla sua giovinezza affinché il buddhismo portasse pace, riconciliazione e fratellanza nella società. Testimone delle devastazioni portate nel suo Paese dalla guerra, ha avuto chiara la percezione che il buddhismo non poteva rinchiudersi nei templi disinteressandosi delle vicende umane ma era chiamato ad agire con equanimità, compassione ed efficacia e portare alle persone aiuti concreti, insieme a insegnamenti e sostegno spirituale.

Nel 1964, durante la guerra in Vietnam, ha dato vita a uno dei movimenti di resistenza nonviolenta più significativi del secolo, i Piccoli Corpi di Pace: gruppi di laici e monaci che si recavano nelle campagne per creare scuole, ospedali e per ricostruire i villaggi bombardati, subendo attacchi da entrambi i contendenti, che li ritenevano alleati del proprio nemico.

Nel 1967, mentre si trovava negli Stati Uniti, è stato candidato al Nobel per la pace da Martin Luther King, che dopo averlo incontrato ha preso posizione pubblicamente contro la guerra in Vietnam. Due anni dopo, già costretto all’esilio, ha dato vita alla Delegazione di Pace Buddhista, che ha partecipato alle trattative di pace di Parigi. Dopo la firma degli accordi gli è stato rifiutato il permesso di rientrare nel suo Paese. Stabilitosi in Francia, nel 1982 ha fondato Plum Village, comunità di monaci e laici nei pressi di Bordeaux, nella quale tuttora vive e insegna l’arte di vivere in consapevolezza. Solo nel gennaio del 2005, dopo 39 anni di esilio, su invito ufficiale del governo vietnamita ha potuto far ritorno per tre mesi in Vietnam, accompagnato da un folto gruppo di monaci e laici, per un viaggio di riconciliazione e insegnamenti.

Conduce ogni anno in tutto il mondo ritiri sull’arte di vivere in consapevolezza, ai quali partecipano migliaia di persone. Ha guidato ritiri speciali per reduci americani della guerra nel Vietnam, per parlamentari statunitensi, per psicoterapeuti, per artisti, per attivisti ambientalisti e per gruppi di praticanti israeliani e palestinesi.
I suoi numerosi libri sono stati tradotti in molte lingue. Le edizioni italiane sono pubblicate da Ubaldini, Mondadori e Neri Pozza.

Maggiori informazioni su di lui e sulla sua comunità possono essere trovate su www.plumvillage.org (in inglese) e sul sito www.esserepace.org (in italiano).

The Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings Introduction
(from Interbeing by Thich Nhat Hanh)

1. The First Mindfulness Training: Openness
Aware of the suffering created by fanaticism and intolerance, we are determined not to be idolatrous about or bound to any doctrine, theory, or ideology, even Buddhist ones. Buddhist teachings are guiding means to help us learn to look deeply and to develop our understanding and compassion. They are not doctrines to fight, kill, or die for.

2. The Second Mindfulness Training: Nonattachment from Views
Aware of the suffering created by attachment to views and wrong perceptions, we are determined to avoid being narrow-minded and bound to present views. We shall learn and practice nonattachment from views in order to be open to others’ insights and experiences. We are aware that the knowledge we presently possess is not changeless, absolute truth. Truth is found in life, and we will observe life within and around us in every moment, ready to learn throughout our lives.

3. The Third Mindfulness Training: Freedom of Thought
Aware of the suffering brought about when we impose our views on others, we are committed not to force others, even our children, by any means whatsoever – such as authority, threat, money, propaganda, or indoctrination – to adopt our views. We will respect the right of others to be different and to choose what to believe and how to decide. We will, however, help others renounce fanaticism and narrowness through practicing deeply and engaging in compassionate dialogue.

4. The Fourth Mindfulness Training: Awareness of Suffering
Aware that looking deeply at the nature of suffering can help us develop compassion and find ways out of suffering, we are determined not to avoid or close our eyes before suffering. We are committed to finding ways, including personal contact, images, and sounds, to be with those who suffer, so we can understand their situation deeply and help them transform their suffering into compassion, peace, and joy.

5. The Fifth Mindfulness Training: Simple, Healthy Living
Aware that true happiness is rooted in peace, solidity, freedom, and compassion, and not in wealth or fame, we are determined not to take as the aim of our life fame, profit, wealth, or sensual pleasure, nor to accumulate wealth while millions are hungry and dying. We are committed to living simply and sharing our time, energy, and material resources with those in need. We will practice mindful consuming, not using alcohol, drugs, or any other products that bring toxins into our own and the collective body and consciousness.

6. The Sixth Mindfulness Training: Dealing with Anger
Aware that anger blocks communication and creates suffering, we are determined to take care of the energy of anger when it arises and to recognize and transform the seeds of anger that lie deep in our consciousness. When anger comes up, we are determined not to do or say anything, but to practice mindful breathing or mindful walking and acknowledge, embrace, and look deeply into our anger. We will learn to look with the eyes of compassion at ourselves and at those we think are the cause of our anger.

7. The Seventh Mindfulness Training: Dwelling Happily in the Present Moment
Aware that life is available only in the present moment and that it is possible to live happily in the here and now, we are committed to training ourselves to live deeply each moment of daily life. We will try not to lose ourselves in dispersion or be carried away by regrets about the past, worries about the future, or craving, anger, or jealousy in the present. We will practice mindful breathing to come back to what is happening in the present moment. We are determined to learn the art of mindful living by touching the wondrous, refreshing, and healing elements that are inside and around us, and by nourishing seeds of joy, peace, love, and understanding in ourselves, thus facilitating the work of transformation and healing in our consciousness.

8. The Eighth Mindfulness Training: Community and Communication
Aware that lack of communication always brings separation and suffering, we are committed to training ourselves in the practice of compassionate listening and loving speech. We will learn to listen deeply without judging or reacting and refrain from uttering words that can create discord or cause the community to break. We will make every effort to keep communications open and to reconcile and resolve all conflicts, however small.

9. The Ninth Mindfulness Training: Truthful and Loving Speech
Aware that words can create suffering or happiness, we are committed to learning to speak truthfully and constructively, using only words that inspire hope and confidence. We are determined not to say untruthful things for the sake of personal interest or to impress people, nor to utter words that might cause division or hatred. We will not spread news that we do not know to be certain nor criticize or condemn things of which we are not sure. We will do our best to speak out about situations of injustice, even when doing so may threaten our safety.

10. The Tenth Mindfulness Training: Protecting the Sangha
Aware that the essence and aim of a Sangha is the practice of understanding and compassion, we are determined not to use the Buddhist community for personal gain or profit or transform our community into a political instrument. A spiritual community should, however, take a clear stand against oppression and injustice and should strive to change the situation without engaging in partisan conflicts.

11. The Eleventh Mindfulness Training: Right Livelihood

Aware that great violence and injustice have been done to our environment and society, we are committed not to live with a vocation that is harmful to humans and nature. We will do our best to select a livelihood that helps realize our ideal of understanding and compassion. Aware of global economic, political and social realities, we will behave responsibly as consumers and as citizens, not supporting companies that deprive others of their chance to live.

12. The Twelfth Mindfulness Training: Reverence for Life
Aware that much suffering is caused by war and conflict, we are determined to cultivate nonviolence, understanding, and compassion in our daily lives, to promote peace education, mindful mediation, and reconciliation within families, communities, nations, and in the world. We are determined not to kill and not to let others kill. We will diligently practice deep looking with our Sangha to discover better ways to protect life and prevent war.

13. The Thirteenth Mindfulness Training: Generosity
Aware of the suffering caused by exploitation, social injustice, stealing, and oppression, we are committed to cultivating loving kindness and learning ways to work for the well-being of people, animals, plants, and minerals. We will practice generosity by sharing our time, energy, and material resources with those who are in need. We are determined not to steal and not to possess anything that should belong to others. We will respect the property of others, but will try to prevent others from profiting from human suffering or the suffering of other beings.

14. The Fourteenth Mindfulness Training: Right Conduct
(For lay members): Aware that sexual relations motivated by craving cannot dissipate the feeling of loneliness but will create more suffering, frustration, and isolation, we are determined not to engage in sexual relations without mutual understanding, love, and a long-term commitment. In sexual relations, we must be aware of future suffering that may be caused. We know that to preserve the happiness of ourselves and others, we must respect the rights and commitments of ourselves and others. We will do everything in our power to protect children from sexual abuse and to protect couples and families from being broken by sexual misconduct. We will treat our bodies with respect and preserve our vital energies (sexual, breath, spirit) for the realization of our bodhisattva ideal. We will be fully aware of the responsibility of bringing new lives into the world, and will meditate on the world into which we are bringing new beings.

(For monastic members): Aware that the aspiration of a monk or a nun can only be realized when he or she wholly leaves behind the bonds of worldly love, we are committed to practicing chastity and to helping others protect themselves. We are aware that loneliness and suffering cannot be alleviated by the coming together of two bodies in a sexual relationship, but by the practice of true understanding and compassion. We know that a sexual relationship will destroy our life as a monk or a nun, will prevent us from realizing our ideal of serving living beings, and will harm others. We are determined not to suppress or mistreat our body or to look upon our body as only an instrument, but to learn to handle our body with respect. We are determined to preserve vital energies (sexual, breath, spirit) for the realization of our bodhisattva ideal


Biography of  teacher Thich Nhat Hanh

One of the best known and most respected Zen masters in the world today, poet, peace and human rights activist, Thich Nhat Hanh has led an extraordinary life. Born in central Vietnam in 1926, Nhat Hanh was ordained a Buddhist monk in 1942, at the age of sixteen. Just eight years later, he co-founded what was to become the foremost center of Buddhist studies in South Vietnam , the An Quang Buddhist Institute.

In 1961, Nhat Hanh came to the United States to study and teach comparative religion at Columbia and Princeton Universities . But in 1963, his monk-colleagues in Vietnam invited him to come home to join them in their work to stop the US-Vietnam war. After returning to Vietnam , he helped lead one of the great nonviolent resistance movements of the century, based entirely on Gandhian principles.

In 1964, along with a group of university professors and students in Vietnam, Thich Nhat Hanh founded the School of Youth for Social Service, called by the American press the “little Peace Corps,” in which teams of young people went into the countryside to establish schools and health clinics, and later to rebuild villages that had been bombed. By the time of the fall of Saigon, there were more than 10,000 monks, nuns, and young social workers involved in the work. In the same year, he helped set up what was to become one of the most prestigious publishing houses in Vietnam, La Boi Press. In his books and as editor-in-chief of the official publication of the Unified Buddhist Church, he called for reconciliation between the warring parties in Vietnam, and because of that his writings were censored by both opposing governments.

In 1966, at the urging of his fellow monks, he accepted an invitation from the Fellowship of Reconciliation and Cornell University to come to the U.S. “to describe to [us] the aspirations and the agony of the voiceless masses of the Vietnamese people” ( New Yorker , June 25, 1966). He had a densely packed schedule of speaking engagements and private meetings, and spoke convincingly in favor of a ceasefire and a negotiated settlement. Martin Luther King, Jr. was so moved by Nhat Hanh and his proposals for peace that he nominated him for the 1967 Nobel Peace Prize, saying, “I know of no one more worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize than this gentle monk from Vietnam .” Largely due to Thich Nhat Hanh’s influence, King came out publicly against the war at a press conference, with Nhat Hanh, in Chicago .

When Thomas Merton, the well-known Catholic monk and mystic, met Thich Nhat Hanh at his monastery, Gethsemani, near Louisville , Kentucky , he told his students, “Just the way he opens the door and enters a room demonstrates his understanding. He is a true monk.” Merton went on to write an essay, “Nhat Hanh Is My Brother,” an impassioned plea to listen to Nhat Hanh’s proposals for peace and lend full support for Nhat Hanh’s advocacy of peace. After important meetings with Senators Fullbright and Kennedy, Secretary of Defense McNamara, and others in Washington, Thich Nhat Hanh went to Europe, where he met with a number of heads of state and officials of the Catholic church, including two audiences with Pope Paul VI, urging cooperation between Catholics and Buddhists to help bring peace to Vietnam .

In 1969, at the request of the Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam, Thich Nhat Hanh set up the Buddhist Peace Delegation to the Paris Peace Talks. After the Peace Accords were signed in 1973, he was refused permission to return to Vietnam , and he established a small community a hundred miles southwest of Paris , called “Sweet Potato.” In 1976-77, Nhat Hanh conducted an operation to rescue boat people in the Gulf of Siam , but hostility from the governments of Thailand and Singapore made it impossible to continue. So for the following five years, he stayed at Sweet Potato in retreat – meditating, reading, writing, binding books, gardening, and occasionally receiving visitors.

In 1982, Thich Nhat Hanh established Plum Village, a larger, thriving retreat center near Bordeaux, France, where he has been living in exile from his native Vietnam . Since 1983 he has traveled to North America to lead retreats and give lectures on mindful living and social responsibility, “making peace right in the moment we are alive.” He has offered retreats for Vietnam veterans, mental health and social workers, prison inmates, ecologists, businessmen, police officers and members of Congress. In 1997, Nhat Hanh founded the Green Mountain Dharma Center and Maple Forest Monastery in Vermont . In 2000, he founded Deer Park Monastery in Escondido, California. He has ordained over two hundred monks and nuns from different parts of the world. In addition, 230 lay practice communities practicing in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh meet regularly throughout the United States and around the world.

Since his days in Vietnam , Thich Nhat Hanh has been a leading proponent of “engaged Buddhism,” a way of life and a spiritual practice that works actively in the world to relieve suffering. Nhat Hanh continues his work to alleviate the suffering of refugees, boat people, political prisoners and hungry families in Vietnam and other Third World countries. He has been instrumental in initiating the declaration, by the General Assembly of the United Nations, dedicating 2001-2010 as the “International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World” (Resolution A/RES/53/2519/111998). He collaborated with the Nobel Peace Laureates in drafting the “Manifesto 2000,” with six points on the Practice of Peace and Non-violence distributed by UNESCO. In December 2000, Thich Nhat Hanh was invited to give a lecture at the White House World Summit Conference on HIV and AIDS. He has also been invited to speak at The Gorbachev World Forum and the World Economic Summit in Davos , Switzerland .

Thich Nhat Hanh has received recognition for his prolific writings on meditation, mindfulness, and peace. He has published over 85 titles of accessible poems, prose, and prayers, with more than 40 of those works in English. His best-known books include Peace is Every Step , Being Peace , Touching Peace , Call Me by My True Names , Living Buddha, Living Christ , Teachings on Love , and Anger .

Now eighty years old, Thich Nhat Hanh is emerging as one of the great teachers of our time. In the midst of our society’s emphasis on speed, efficiency, and material success, Thich Nhat Hanh’s ability to walk calmly with peace and awareness and to teach us to do the same has led to his enthusiastic reception in the West. Although his mode of expression is simple, his message reveals the quintessence of the deep understanding of reality that comes from his meditations, his Buddhist training, and his work in the world.

CANNED HEAT – LIVING THE BLUES (FULL ALBUM)


Il gruppo si formò nel 1965, composto da Alan Wilson (chitarra, armonica a bocca e voce), Bob Hite, detto The Bear (voce e armonica a bocca) ed Henry Vestine (chitarra).

Il bassista Larry Taylor, strumentista eccelso che suonò anche con il rocker inglese John Mayall nell’LP USA Union, fece parte dei Canned Heat dal 1967 al 1970 e partecipò con loro a vari festival, compresi il Monterey Pop Festival e Woodstock.

Nel 1967 la band si fece conoscere al Festival di Monterey e incise Canned Heat.

Nel 1968, con Boogie with the Canned Heat, accolse nell’organico il batterista Adolfo De La Parra, detto Fito. Poi arrivarono i successi di On the Road Again (famosa la cover del 1977 dei francesi Rockets) e Going Up the Country (tratta dal successivo Living the Blues

del 1968), che si imposero subito nell’olimpo dei grandi classici del rock blues.

https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canned_Heat_(gruppo_musicale)

Canned Heat is an American blues/boogie rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1965.

The group has been noted for its own interpretations of blues material as well as for efforts to promote the interest in this type of music and its original artists. It was launched by two blues enthusiasts, Alan Wilson and Bob Hite, who took the name from Tommy Johnson’s 1928 “Canned Heat Blues”, a song about an alcoholic who had desperately turned to drinking Sterno, generically called “canned heat”. After appearances at the Monterey and Woodstock festivals at the end of the 1960s, the band acquired worldwide fame with a lineup consisting of Bob Hite, vocals, Alan Wilson, guitar, harmonica and vocals, Henry Vestine (and later, Harvey Mandel) on lead guitar, Larry Taylor on bass, and Adolfo de la Parra on drums.

The music and attitude of Canned Heat afforded them a large following and established the band as one of the popular acts of the hippie era. Canned Heat appeared at most major musical events at the end of the 1960s, and were able to deliver on stage electrifying[citation needed] performances of blues standards and their own material and occasionally to indulge into lengthier ‘psychedelic’ solos. Two of their songs – “Going Up the Country” and “On the Road Again” – became international hits. “Going Up the Country” was a remake of the Henry Thomas song “Bull Doze Blues” recorded in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1927. “On the Road Again” was a cover version of the 1953 Floyd Jones song of the same name, which is reportedly based on the Tommy Johnson song “Big Road Blues” recorded in 1928.

Since the early 1970s, numerous personnel changes have occurred and today, in the fifth decade of its existence, the band includes all three of the surviving classic lineup members: de la Parra (who has permanently remained in the band since first joining in 1967), Mandel, and Taylor. For much of the 1990s and 2000s, de la Parra was the only member from the band’s 1960s lineup. He has written a book about the band’s career.[1] Larry Taylor, whose presence in the band has not been steady, is the other surviving member from the earliest lineups. Mandel, Walter Trout and Junior Watson are among the guitarists who gained fame for playing in later editions of the band. British-blues pioneer John Mayall has frequently found musicians for his band among former Canned Heat members.

Amore e meditazione – Osho


Ci sono due vie , solo due, che conducono all’illuminazione: una è la meditazione e l’altra è l’amore. La via della saggezza e la via della devozione. L’amore ha bisogno dell’altro, con la meditazione si può fare da soli.

Prendersi la responsabilità di se stessi – Osho


Se ti assumi la responsabilità di te stesso, non puoi essere un egoista, perché essere un egoista significa semplicemente che sei profondamente addormentato e non puoi assumere alcuna responsabilità. La responsabilità giunge con la consapevolezza, con l’attenzione.

Sappiamo dare un senso alla sofferenza?


Dolori, patimenti e disagi, sofferenze.

Sappiamo il dolore della fame e del freddo, della carne martoriata, compressa,
ustionata; i patimenti dell’abbandono, del disamore, della prigionia; la
sofferenza delle situazioni-limite che provocano l’uomo ed esigono risposte
indifferibili: la previsione della morte, il disfarsi di ciò che si è in anni
costruito, il rischio del non-senso.

Soffrire (sub ferre), sostenere, sopportare, essere oppressi e a volte
schiacciati dal dubbio e dalla disperazione, mentre la domanda incalza: «Perché?
Perché proprio a me? Perché proprio ora?»

È con la stessa apparizione della coscienza, segnata dalla separazione e
dall’isolamento, che l’umanità ha incontrato la sofferenza: «per il fatto di
essere privati dell’originaria armonia con la natura, caratteristica
dell’animale la cui vita è determinata da istinti innati, e di essere dotati di
ragione e autocoscienza, non possiamo fare a meno di sperimentare la nostra
totale separazione da ogni altro essere umano» (E. Fromm). Separazione dagli
altri esseri umani e separazione dal mondo naturale nel suo insieme. La
solitudine dell’uomo nell’universo, che lo fa isolato anche dal suo stesso
corpo, è all’origine dell’odissea che, con molteplici vie, attraversa la storia
alla ricerca, attraverso un “vero” corpo, il lavoro, la sessualità., di una
possibile reintegrazione nel reale, coincidente con un ritrovamento di senso.

L’esistente è esperienza, l’esperienza dualità, la dualità mancanza. La
separatezza definisce la condizione umana in base al suo vivere nel mondo dei
contrari, alla sua caduta nel tempo ordinario, nel tempo della precarietà. Jung
ci ricorda che non è la sofferenza in sé a essere particolarmente dolorosa
quanto l’incapacità di dare a essa un significato. «La psiconevrosi», egli
scrive, «è in ultima analisi una sofferenza della psiche che non ha trovato il
proprio significato». E poiché «soltanto ciò che ha significato redime» sono le
grandi dottrine di vita che hanno potuto offrire strumenti salvifici e strategie
di dominio del patire (dalle sue forme più crude e oscure fino alla sofferenza
spirituale) in quanto hanno saputo collocare la sofferenza in una
rappresentazione ordinata del mondo, che consente di dare un significato alla
vita e alla molteplicità dei fenomeni.

Se la sofferenza è legata alla separazione, al dualismo e alla precarietà, la
liberazione risiederà in uno stato non-condizionato, uno stato che supera i
contrari e implica una uscita dalle contingenze del tempo, liberando l’uomo da
quello che è stato detto “terrore della storia” (Eliade): è infatti proprio
nella storia che l’umanità incontra le malattie e la morte, le calamità
naturali, le ingiustizie sociali. Le tradizioni spirituali, nelle loro promesse
di altri mondi e/o nelle loro proposte di diversi modi di vivere, possono essere
pertanto viste come procedure di riconciliazione degli opposti e vie di uscita
dall’idolatria della realtà “ordinaria” e dal monoteismo dell’io. L’homo
religiosus mediante il continuo riferimento alla Realtà ultima, assoluta e
non-duale, realizza quella donazione di senso in cui ha sempre riposto la
speranza di liberazione e salvezza.

Tra i diversi scenari in cui le culture hanno collocato la sofferenza, quello
offerto dalla tradizione ebraico-cristiana è caratterizzato dalla
“giustificazione” del male come effetto di una colpa originaria, colpa che ha
introdotto nel mondo la distruzione, la malattia e la morte. Incapace di
autonoma salvezza, l’uomo attende il compimento di una promessa inimmaginabile e
inaudita perché proveniente da dio stesso: quella di un mondo senza il male,
quella in cui il dio redentore «tergerà ogni lacrima dai loro occhi; non ci sarà
più la morte né lamento né affanno, perché le cose di prima sono passate» (Ap.,
21, 4). Saranno realizzati un tempo nuovo, una eterna domenica della vita, e uno
spazio nuovo, un luogo di cui si possa dire: «Là riposeremo e vedremo, vedremo e
ameremo, ameremo e loderemo» (Agostino, De Civ. Dei , 29, 5). Il santo si nutre
di questa speranza, la conserva e diffonde; ma la fede, intanto, è messa alla
prova dall’interminabile attesa ed estenuata
dall’angosciata domanda: «Fino a quando, Signore?» (Sal., 13).

Un diverso scenario incontriamo nelle tradizioni orientali e, tra esse, in
particolare, nel buddhismo. In questa prospettiva, positivo e negativo,
costruzione e distruzione, nascita e morte, nella loro inseparabilità
costituiscono il flusso circolare e ininterrotto della vita, da accogliere nella
totalità dei suoi aspetti. Il dolore non ha dunque bisogno di una
giustificazione particolare, non più di qualunque altro aspetto del reale.
L’impermanenza e la mancanza di consistenza dei fenomeni e dell’io divengono
fonte di patimento se si mettono in atto attaccamenti e avversioni, basati
sull’ignoranza (avidya=ignoranza trascendentale, collettiva e individuale) e
sull’immatura protesta di chi vorrebbe un mondo illusoriamente diverso da quello
che è. Il messaggio dell’Illuminato è pertanto quello di una pratica incessante
di attenzione, rivolta a vedere le cose come sono: «L’attenzione è il sentiero
che conduce all’immortalità, la disattenzione è il sentiero della morte. Coloro
che sono attenti non muoiono, i disattenti sono già come morti» (Dhp., 21). La
“via di mezzo”, tra mortificazione di sé e passioni egoistiche e incontrollate,
è la via che conduce al Nirvana, sinonimo di libertà e pace. La saggezza,
illuminata dalla luce della Vacuità, sa che nulla ci appartiene, non la vita e
neppure il dolore. L’approssimarsi della morte può essere allora vissuto come un
prepararsi a ritornare serenamente a casa, la casa da dove siamo venuti. Quando
ci verrà chiesto di restituire ciò che non era nostro, il saggio potrà
rispondere, con le parole di Seneca: «Riprenditi un animo migliore di come l’hai
dato; non tergiverso, non mi sottraggo; hai qui pronto e da una persona
consapevole ciò che le hai dato senza che ne avesse percezione: porta pure via».

La modernità ha prodotto storicismo (l’uomo si è voluto “storico”),
secolarizzazione (l’uomo ha voluto essere il garante della sua propria
salvezza), utopia (la terra senza il male realizzata dall’opera dell’uomo).
Nella postmodernità (e postsecolarizzazione), compreso che il maggior pericolo
per l’uomo è diventato l’uomo stesso, senza più difese esterne contro il
“terrore della storia”, l’umanità si muove tra una tecnologia, per sua natura
ambivalente, a volte incontrollabile, sempre parziale e dunque sempre
“relativa”, e il tentativo di recupero di tradizioni religiose e sapienziali che
faticano ad adattarsi al mondo contemporaneo. Ma il dolore esige risposte e non
consente rinvii: la vera questione di vita o di morte rimane sempre la lotta per
dare senso alla sofferenza, per mettere una cornice al quadro del negativo, per
contenerlo, circoscriverlo, dominarlo: ma il contenuto spesso preme, minaccia di
debordare e dilagare in tragedia; la cornice deve venire allargata,
per comprenderlo, ancora e di nuovo. Ognuno è chiamato a questa sfida, a
esercitare quotidianamente la sua volontà buona nell’esercizio di bonifica
almeno di un frammento del mondo, nel ricostruire e adattare, giorno dopo
giorno, le cornici che ha a disposizione perché il male possa essere
circoscritto, avere “la sua parte” nel mondo (Jung) e, in tal modo, forse, anche
redenzione.

Pain, suffering and hardships, sufferings. 

We know the pain of hunger and cold, the flesh torn, compressed, 
burned, the sufferings of abandonment, of estrangement, imprisonment, and the 
suffering of the extreme situations that cause the man and demand answers 
postponed: the prediction of death, to get rid of what you have in years 
built, the risk of non-sense. 

Suffering (sub iron), sustain, endure, be oppressed, and sometimes 
overwhelmed by doubt and despair, while the question persisted: “Why? 
Why me? Why now? ” 

It is with the same appearance of consciousness, marked by separation and 
isolation, that mankind has encountered the suffering “because of 
be deprived of the original harmony with nature, a characteristic 
the animal whose life is determined by innate instincts, and be equipped with 
reason and self-awareness, we can not help but experience our
completely independent of every other human being “(E. Fromm). Separation by 
other people and separation from the natural world as a whole.The 
alone in the universe, which makes him isolated even from his own 
body, the odyssey that is at the origin, with multiple pathways, through history 
looking through a “real” body, work, sexuality., a 
possible reintegration into the real, coincident with a sense of discovery. 

The existing experience, the experience of duality, the duality lack. The 
separation defines the human condition based on its experience in the world of 
contrary, its fall in ordinary time, in time of uncertainty. Jung 
reminds us that suffering is not in itself to be particularly painful 
as the inability to give a meaning to it. “The psycho-neuroses,” he 
writes, “is ultimately a pain in the psyche that did not find the 
its meaning. ” And since “only what it meant saving grace” are the 
great doctrines of life that they could offer saving tools and strategies 
domain of suffering (from its most raw and dark until the pain 
spiritual) as they have been able to locate the pain in a 
orderly representation of the world, allowing you to give meaning to 
living and the multiplicity of phenomena. 

If the pain is related to separation, duality and insecurity, 
Liberation will reside in a non-conditional, a state that exceeds 
against and imply an exit from the contingencies of time, freeing man from 
what has been called the “terror of history” (Eliade) is in fact 
in history that humanity meets the illness and death, disasters 
natural, social injustice. The spiritual traditions, in their promises
of other worlds and / or proposals in their different ways of living, can be 
therefore seen as a process of reconciliation of opposites and the way out 
idolatry of reality “ordinary” and the monotheism of the self.Homo 
religiosus by the continual reference to the ultimate reality, absolute and 
non-dual, the donation makes sense that he always placed the 
hope of deliverance and salvation. 

Among the different scenarios in which cultures have placed the suffering, the 
offered by the Jewish-Christian tradition is characterized by 
“Justification” of evil as an effect of original sin, guilt has 
introduced the world to destruction, disease and death. Unable to 
self-salvation, the man waits for the fulfillment of a promise and unimaginable 
unheard of because it came from God himself: that of a world without evil, 
one in which the redeeming God “will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there will be 
no more death or crying or pain, for the former things have passed away “(Rev., 
21, 4). Will be made once again, an eternal life Sunday, and a 
new space, a place where you can say: “There shall rest and see, and we will see 
we will love, love and praise “(Augustine, De Civ. Dei, 29, 5).The saint feeds 
This hope, preserves and spreads, but the faith, meanwhile, is put to 
exhausted by the endless waiting and testing 
anxiety question: “How long, Lord?” (Ps. 13). 

A different scenario, we meet in the Eastern traditions, and among them, in 
particularly in Buddhism. In this perspective, positive and negative, 
construction and destruction, birth and death, in their inseparability 
represent the circular flow of life, uninterrupted, to be accepted in 
all of its aspects. The pain did not therefore need a 
special justification, any more than any other aspect of reality. 
The impermanence and lack of consistency of phenomena and the ego becomes 
source of suffering if you put in place attachments and aversions, based 
ignorance (Avidya = ignorance transcendental collective and individual) and 
sull’immatura protest from those who would like a world different from the illusory 
it is. The message of the Enlightened One, therefore, is a ceaseless practice 
of attention paid to see things as they are: “Attention is the path 
that leads to immortality, inattention is the path of death. Those 
who are careful not die, the heedless are already as dead “(Dhp., 21). The 
“Middle path” between self-mortification of passions and selfish and uncontrolled, 
is the path that leads to Nirvana, stands for freedom and peace.Wisdom, 
illuminated by the light of emptiness, he knows that nothing belongs to us, not life and 
even pain. The approach of death can then be experienced as a 
prepare to return home peacefully, the house where we came from. When 
we will be asked to return what was not ours, the essay will 
respond with the words of Seneca: “Snap out a mind better than you do 
given, do not fiddle around, I do not subtract, you have a person here and ready 
aware of what you gave that he had no perception also leads on. ” 

Modernity has produced historicism (the man he wanted to “historical”) 
secularization (the man wanted to be the guarantor of its own 
salvation), Utopia (the land without evil created by man). 
In postmodernity (and postsecolarizzazione), including that the greatest danger 
for man has become the man himself, with no outer defenses against 
“Terror of history”, humanity is moving from a technology, by its nature 
ambivalent, at times uncontrollable, always partial, and therefore always 
“Relative”, and the attempted recovery of religious traditions and wisdom that 
struggle to adapt to the contemporary world. But the pain is demanding answers and not 
allows postponement: the real question of life or death is always the struggle for 
give meaning to suffering, to put a frame to the picture of the negative, for 
restrain, circumscribe it, dominate it: but the content is often pressed, the threat of 
overflowing and spreading in tragedy; the frame must be enlarged, 
to understand it, again and again. Everyone is called to this challenge, 
good day to exercise his will during the remediation 
at least a fragment of the world, to rebuild and fit, day after 
days, the frames he has available because evil can be 
circumscribed, have “their part” in the world (Jung) and, thus, perhaps, even 
redemption.

The best of Rolling Stones


I Rolling Stones sono un gruppo musicale rock britannico, composto da Mick Jagger (voce, armonica, chitarra), Keith Richards (chitarre, voce), Ronnie Wood (chitarre, cori) e Charlie Watts (batteria, percussioni). È una delle band più importanti e tra le maggiori espressioni della miscela tra i generi della musica rock e blues, quel genere musicale che è l’evoluzione del rock & roll anni cinquanta, da loro rivisitato in chiave più dura con ritmi lascivi, canto aggressivo, continui riferimenti al sesso e, talvolta, alle droghe pesanti.

Per il loro essere trasgressivi furono chiamati i “brutti, sporchi e cattivi” e contrapposti ai più rassicuranti Beatles, anche se tale contrapposizione fu spesso creata dagli stessi Rolling Stones che si comportavano in modo volutamente antitetico rispetto ai Beatles (con i quali ebbero peraltro sempre un ottimo rapporto di stima e amicizia), proponendo così un modello alternativo a uso e consumo della stampa musicale. I Rolling Stones sono stati, e sono tuttora, un’autentica pietra miliare nell’evoluzione della musica rock del XX secolo, portando sotto i riflettori il malcontento e di conseguenza la protesta di intere generazioni, incarnando così il travagliato spirito dei grandi bluesman del passato e scegliendo il titolo di una canzone di uno di questi (Muddy Waters) come nome del loro gruppo.

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rolling_Stones

The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). Stewart was removed from the official line-up in 1963 but continued as occasional pianist until his death in 1985. Jones departed the band less than a month prior to his death in 1969, having already been replaced by Mick Taylor, who remained until 1975. Subsequently, Ronnie Wood has been on guitar in tandem with Richards. Following Wyman’s departure in 1993, Darryl Jones has been the main bassist. Other notable keyboardists for the band have included Nicky Hopkins, active from 1967 to 1982; Billy Preston through the mid 1970s (most prominent on Black and Blue) and Chuck Leavell, active since 1982. The band was first led by Jones but after teaming as the band’s songwriters, Jagger and Richards assumed de facto leadership.

The Rolling Stones were in the vanguard of the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the US in 1964–65. At first noted for their longish hair as much as their music, the band are identified with the youthful and rebellious counterculture of the 1960s. Critic Sean Egan states that within a year of the release of their 1964 debut album, they “were being perceived by the youth of Britain and then the world as representatives of opposition to an old, cruel order — the antidote to a class-bound, authoritarian culture.”[1] They were instrumental in making blues a major part of rock and roll and of changing the international focus of blues culture, to the less sophisticated blues typified by Chess Records artists such as Muddy Waters, writer of “Rollin’ Stone”, after which the band is named. After a short period of musical experimentation that culminated with the poorly received and largely psychedelic album Their Satanic Majesties Request (1967), the group returned to its bluesy roots with Beggars’ Banquet (1968) which—along with its follow-ups, Let It Bleed (1969), Sticky Fingers (1971) and Exile on Main St. (1972)—is generally considered to be the band’s best work and are considered the Rolling Stones’ “Golden Age”. Musicologist Robert Palmer attributed the “remarkable endurance” of the Rolling Stones to being “rooted in traditional verities, in rhythm-and-blues and soul music”, while “more ephemeral pop fashions have come and gone”.[2]

The band continued to release commercially successful records in the 1970s and sold many albums, with Some Girls (1978) and Tattoo You (1981) being their two most sold albums worldwide. In the 1980s, a feud between Jagger and Richards about the band’s musical direction almost caused the band to split but they managed to patch their relationship and had a big comeback with Steel Wheels (1989) which was followed by a big stadium and arena tour. Since the 1990s, new recorded material from the group has been increasingly less well-received and less frequent. Despite this, the Rolling Stones have continued to be a huge attraction on the live circuit, with big stadium tours in the 1990s and 2000s. By 2007, the band had made what were then four of the top five highest-grossing concert tours of all time (Voodoo Lounge Tour (1994–95), Bridges to Babylon Tour (1997–99), Licks Tour (2002–03) and A Bigger Bang Tour (2005–07).[3]

The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004. Rolling Stone magazine ranked them fourth on the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” list, and their estimated album sales are above 250 million. They have released twenty-nine studio albums, eighteen live albums and numerous compilations. Let It Bleed (1969) was their first of five consecutive number one studio and live albums in the UK. Sticky Fingers (1971) was the first of eight consecutive number one studio albums in the US. In 2008, the band ranked 10th on the Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists chart. In 2012, the band celebrated its 50th anniversary.

Allmand Brothers Band.- a Decade of hits (1969-1979)


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp9qJJZsBBs]

La Allman Brothers Band è un gruppo statunitense formatosi a Jacksonville, Florida, tra il 23 e il 26 marzo 1969[3] attorno ai due fratelli Duane e Gregg Allman. Sono considerati i principali inventori del southern rock[4], genere nato dalla miscela di elementi del blues, del rock, del country e del jazz in generale.[5]

La discografia ufficiale comprende dodici album studio, quattordici album live e sedici raccolte.

Nel 1995 la Allman Brothers Band è entrata a far parte della Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Allman_Brothers_Band

The Allman Brothers Band was an American rock band formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman (slide guitar and lead guitar) and Gregg Allman (vocals, keyboards, songwriting), as well as Dickey Betts (lead guitar, vocals, songwriting), Berry Oakley (bass guitar), Butch Trucks (drums), and Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johanson (drums). While the band has been called the principal architects of southern rock, they also incorporate elements of blues, jazz, and country music, and their live shows have jam band-style improvisation and instrumentals.

The group’s first two studio releases stalled commercially, but their 1971 live release, At Fillmore East, represented an artistic and commercial breakthrough. The album features extended renderings of their songs “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed” and “Whipping Post“, and is often considered among the best live albums. Group leader Duane Allman was killed in a motorcycle accident not long afterward, and the band completed Eat a Peach (1972) in his memory, a dual studio/live album that cemented the band’s popularity. Following the death of bassist Berry Oakley later that year, the group recruited keyboardist Chuck Leavell and bassist Lamar Williams for 1973’sBrothers and Sisters, which, combined with the hit single, “Ramblin’ Man“, placed the group at the forefront of 1970s rock music. Internal turmoil overtook the band soon after; the group dissolved in 1976, reformed briefly at the end of the decade with additional personnel changes, and dissolved again in 1982.

The band reformed once more in 1989, releasing a string of new albums and touring heavily. A series of personnel changes in the late 1990s was capped by the departure of Betts. The group found stability during the 2000s with bassist Oteil Burbridge and guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks (the nephew of their drummer), and became renowned for their month-long string of shows at New York City‘s Beacon Theater each spring. The band retired in 2014 with the departure of the aforementioned members. The band has been awarded eleven gold and five platinum albums,[2] and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. Rolling Stone ranked them 52nd on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time in 2004.

Crosby e Nash In Concert


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypoyxmVynxQ]

Crosby & Nash sono un duo musicale statunitense composto da David Crosby e Graham Nash. I due artisti sono anche attivi assieme nel supergruppo Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young fin dalla fine degli anni ’60.

Come duo, Crosby & Nash hanno lavorato nel corso degli anni ’70 e nella prima metà degli anni 2000.

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crosby_%26_Nash

Crosby & Nash

In addition to solo careers and within the larger aggregate of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the musical team of David Crosby and Graham Nash have performed and recorded regularly as a duo, mostly during the 1970s and the 2000s

After the success of Déjà Vu and the subsequent break-up of the quartet in the summer of 1970, all four members of CSNY released solo albums. Crosby’s If I Could Only Remember My Name and Nash’s Songs for Beginners appeared in 1971 and missed the top ten. That autumn, the two good friends toured together as an acoustic duo to favorable reviews, one night from which would be released twenty-seven years later as Another Stoney Evening. Consequently, in 1972 the two decided to record an album, resulting in Graham Nash David Crosby, which reached #4 on the Billboard 200, ensuring that the two were still a viable draw without the more successful Stills and Young. Further work together later in 1972 was precluded by Crosby’s participation in The Byrdsreunion album recording sessions. In 1973, the pair joined Neil Young for the tour that would result in his Time Fades Away album, Crosby collaborated with electronica artist and Grateful Dead associate Ned Lagin, and Nash recorded a second solo album, Wild Tales. During this time, singularly and together they contributed backing vocals to various albums by associates in the California rock scene, including Stephen Stills, Harvest, Late for the Sky, and Court and Spark.

In 1974, both dutifully joined the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young reunion tour and attempt at the recording of a new album in Hawaii, sessions for which had continued in fits and starts after commencing in late 1973. After failing to complete an album Crosby and Nash signed a contract with ABC Records. Presumably for contractual obligations to their old label, the cassette and 8-track tape versions of their ABC LPs were issued by Atlantic. Recording activity yielded two albums in 1975 and 1976 respectively,Wind on the Water and Whistling Down the Wire. In that bicentennial year, Stephen Stills and Neil Young invited the duo to a recording session for their album Long May You Run. Crosby and Nash were forced to leave the recording session because they had time constraints to complete their second album for ABC Records, so Stills and Young wiped their vocals, releasing it as The Stills-Young Band. Crosby & Nash vowed not to work with either Stills or Young again, that oath lasting not even a year as they reconvened with Stills for the second Crosby Stills & Nash album in 1977.

ABC released four albums by Crosby & Nash prior to its being bought by the MCA conglomerate in 1979. In addition to the two abovementioned studio albums, the concert document Crosby-Nash Live appeared in 1977, with a compilation The Best of Crosby & Nash in 1978. All four albums featured their backing band The Mighty Jitters, consisting of Craig Doerge, Tim Drummond, Danny Kortchmar, Russ Kunkel, and David Lindley. Session bassist Leland Sklar alternated with Drummond in the studio, and the line-up of Doerge, Kortchmar, Kunkel, and Sklar had previously recorded as The Section, providing the back up for the first Crosby & Nash album on Atlantic. Depending upon availability of the various members, the twosome would either tour as a full-blown electric-based aggregation or in a semi-acoustic format with Doerge and Lindley. When CSN reunited on a more or less permanent basis in 1977, Doerge followed the group to Miami for the CSN sessions, contributing to several songs and collaborating on writing the song “Shadow Captain” with Crosby. Crosby and Doerge continued to collaborate regularly until the early 1990s.

In 1979, Crosby & Nash attempted a new album for Capitol Records, but sessions were dampened by Crosby’s increased dependence upon freebase cocaine. Sessions eventually appeared on Nash’s Earth & Sky without any songs from Crosby. Crosby’s problems during the 1980s with drugs, and his prison time, precluded any duo activity with Nash, the pair appearing on the CSN and CSNY albums of that decade. The 1990 CSN album Live It Up started as a Crosby & Nash record, but like its predecessorDaylight Again which was initially sessions for a Stills & Nash effort, Atlantic Records refused to release anything that didn’t include the full trio.

In 2004, Crosby & Nash released their first original studio record since 1976 with the double-album Crosby & Nash on Sanctuary Records, which featured backing mostly by members of Crosby’s band CPR. A single CD version was released in 2006 when CSNY began its “Freedom of Speech ’06” tour. On the Graham Nash box set Reflections, released in February 2009, the last track “In Your Name” was recorded on 21 October 2007 by the same band used for the 2004 Crosby & Nash album, including David Crosby on backing vocals.

James Taylor’s Greatest Hits 1976


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNWLHXMhi08]

James Vernon Taylor (Belmont, 12 marzo 1948) è un cantautore statunitense, tra i più celebri degli anni settanta                                                              

Cresciuto nella cittadina di Chapel Hill (Carolina del Nord) dove, incoraggiato dalla mamma soprano, fin da bambino studiò violoncello, a partire dal 1960 preferì dedicarsi alla chitarra ispirandosi allo stile di Woody Guthrie. Abbandonò la scuola e formò una band col fratello Alex, ma venne ricoverato in un ospedale psichiatrico per curare una forma di depressione. Riuscì ad ottenere il diploma durante il soggiorno in ospedale, quindi si iscrisse alla Milton Academy dove incontrò Danny Kortchmar, col quale formò il gruppo “The Flying Machine”, che incise un singolo di scarso successo: Brighten Your Night with My Day. Trasferitosi a New York, Taylor divennetossicodipendente da eroina.

La canzone Jump Up Behind Me si riferisce a quel periodo: è infatti un omaggio a suo padre, Isaac, che in seguito ad una disperata telefonata del figlio dovette correre a New York per riportarlo a casa a Chapel Hill. Nel pezzo Taylor lo ringrazia per l’aiuto avuto in un periodo di disperato bisogno e descrive i ricordi del lungo viaggio in automobile verso casa. Nel 1968, durante un soggiorno a Londra, grazie ad un amico che aveva suonato per il duo inglese “Peter&Gordon” riuscì, tramite Peter Asher (parte del duo e fratello di Jane Asher, allora fidanzata di Paul McCartney) ad ottenere un’audizione per la Apple Records dei Beatles. Svoltasi in una piccola stanza della Apple, alla presenza di Peter, Paul McCartney e George Harrison, in quella audizione James scelse di far ascoltare Something in the Way She Moves (che poi ispirò George per la sua Something).

Il brano piacque ai due Beatles e Paul chiese a Peter se volesse produrre James per un album. Peter accettò e iniziarono le registrazioni di James Taylor. Al disco collaborarono anche Paul McCartney e George Harrison. Il disco non ebbe immediato successo. Tornato negli Stati Uniti si fece nuovamente ricoverare in ospedale per porre rimedio alla sua dipendenza dalle droghe, nel frattempo divenuta più forte. Quando le sue condizioni migliorarono, nel 1969, si esibì per sei serate al Troubadour Club di Los Angeles ed il 20 luglio al Newport Folk Festival. Poco tempo dopo ebbe un incidente motociclistico che gli procurò fratture multiple alle mani, impedendogli di suonare per diversi mesi.

James Vernon Taylor (born March 12, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. A five-time Grammy Award winner, Taylor was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.[2]

Taylor achieved his breakthrough in 1970 with the No. 3 single “Fire and Rain” and had his first No. 1 hit the following year with “You’ve Got a Friend“, a recording ofCarole King‘s classic song. His 1976 Greatest Hits album was certified Diamond and has sold 12 million US copies. Following his 1977 album, JT, he has retained a large audience over the decades. His commercial achievements declined slightly until a resurgence during the late 1990s and 2000s, when he recorded some of his best-selling and most-awarded work (including Hourglass, October Road and Covers).

James Taylor was born at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on March 12, 1948, where his father, Isaac M. Taylor, was a resident physician.[3][4] His father was from a well-off family of Southerners of Scottish ancestry.[3] His mother, the former Gertrude Woodard, studied singing with Marie Sundelius at the New England Conservatory of Music and was an aspiring opera singer before the couple’s marriage in 1946.[3][5] James was the second of five children, the others being Alex (1947–1993), Kate (born 1949), Livingston (born 1950), and Hugh (born 1952).[6]

In 1951, when Taylor was three, his family moved to what was then the countryside of Chapel Hill, North Carolina,[7] when Isaac took a job as an assistant professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine.[8] They built a house in the Morgan Creek area off of what is now Morgan Creek Road, which was sparsely populated.[9] James would later say, “Chapel Hill, the Piedmont, the outlying hills, were tranquil, rural, beautiful, but quiet. Thinking of the red soil, the seasons, the way things smelled down there, I feel as though my experience of coming of age there was more a matter of landscape and climate than people.”[9] James attended public primary school in Chapel Hill.[3] Isaac’s career prospered, but he was frequently away from home, on military service at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland or as part of Operation Deep Freeze in Antarctica during 1955–1956.[10] Isaac Taylor later rose to become dean of the UNC School of Medicine from 1964 to 1971.[11] The Taylors spent summers on Martha’s Vineyard beginning in 1953.[12]

James Taylor first learned to play the cello as a child in North Carolina, and switched to the guitar in 1960.[13] His style on that instrument evolved from listening to hymns, carols, and Woody Guthrie, while his technique derived from his bass clef–oriented cello training and from experimenting on his sister Kate’s keyboards: “My style was a finger-picking style that was meant to be like a piano, as if my thumb were my left hand, and my first, second, and third fingers were my right hand.”[14] He began attending Milton Academy, a prep boarding school in Massachusetts in Fall 1961; summering before then with his family on Martha’s Vineyard, he met Danny Kortchmar, an aspiring teenage guitarist from Larchmont, New York.[15] The two began listening to and playing blues and folk music together, and Kortchmar quickly realized that Taylor’s singing had a “natural sense of phrasing, every syllable beautifully in time. I knew James had that thing.”[16] Taylor wrote his first song on guitar at age 14, and continued to learn the instrument effortlessly.[14] By the summer of 1963, he and Kortchmar were playing coffeehouses around the Vineyard, billed as “Jamie & Kootch”.[17]

Taylor faltered during his junior year at Milton, feeling uneasy in the high-pressured college prep environment despite a good scholastic performance.[18] The Milton headmaster would later say, “James was more sensitive and less goal oriented than most students of his day.”[19] He returned home to North Carolina to finish out the semester at Chapel Hill High School.[18] There he joined a band his brother Alex had formed called The Corsayers (later The Fabulous Corsairs), playing electric guitar; in 1964 they cut a single in Raleigh that featured James’s song “Cha Cha Blues” on the B-side.[18] Having lost touch with his former school friends in North Carolina, Taylor returned to Milton for his senior year.[18]

There, Taylor started applying to colleges,[20] but soon descended into depression; his grades collapsed, he slept 20 hours each day, and he felt part of a “life that I [was] unable to lead”.[18][21] In late 1965 he committed himself to the renowned McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts,[18] where he was treated with Thorazine and where the organized days began to give him a sense of time and structure.[19][21] As theVietnam War escalated, Taylor received a psychological rejection from Selective Service System when he appeared before them with two white-suited McLean assistants and was uncommunicative.[22] Taylor earned a high school diploma in 1966 from the hospital’s associated Arlington School.[22] He would later view his nine-month stay at McLean as “a lifesaver … like a pardon or like a reprieve”,[21] and both his brother Livingston and sister Kate would later be patients and students there as well.[19] As for his mental health struggles, Taylor would think of them as innate, and say: “It’s an inseparable part of my personality that I have these feelings.

The Grateful Dead – American Beauty (Album Completo) [Full Album]


I Grateful Dead sono stati un gruppo musicale rock statunitense.

Nati alla metà degli anni sessanta, furono fra gli artisti fondamentali della storia di quello che veniva chiamato acid rock o rock psichedelico.[1][2] Divennero celebri per il loro stile eclettico, che univa elementi di rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, country e jazz e dal vivo era caratterizzato da interminabili e lisergiche improvvisazioni modali. Attorno ai Grateful Dead nacque una sorta di culto; alcuni loro fan, chiamati Deadhead, seguirono il gruppo in concerto per anni, vivendo di fatto come nomadi in onore della loro devozione verso “the Dead”.[3]

La rivista Rolling Stone li inserisce al cinquantasettesimo posto nella lista dei 100 grandi artisti.[4]

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grateful_Dead

 

The Grateful Dead is an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California.[2][3] The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, and space rock,[4][5] and for live performances of long musical improvisation.[6][7] “Their music,” writes Lenny Kaye, “touches on ground that most other groups don’t even know exists.”[8] These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead “the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world”.[9] They were ranked 57th in the issue The Greatest Artists of all Time by Rolling Stone magazine.[10] They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994[11] and their Barton Hall Concert at Cornell University (May 8, 1977) was added to the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry.[12] The Grateful Dead have sold more than 35 million albums worldwide.

The Grateful Dead was founded in the San Francisco Bay Area amid the rise of counterculture of the 1960s.[13][14][15] The founding members were Jerry Garcia(guitar, vocals), Bob Weir (guitar, vocals), Ron “Pigpen” McKernan (keyboards, harmonica, vocals), Phil Lesh (bass, vocals), and Bill Kreutzmann (drums).[16]Members of the Grateful Dead had played together in various San Francisco bands, including Mother McCree’s Uptown Jug Champions and the Warlocks. Lesh was the last member to join the Warlocks before they became the Grateful Dead; he replaced Dana Morgan Jr., who had played bass for a few gigs. With the exception of McKernan, who died in 1973, the core of the band stayed together for its entire 30-year history.[17] Other longtime members of the band includeMickey Hart (drums 1967–1971, 1974–1995, 2015), Keith Godchaux (keyboards 1971–1979), Donna Godchaux (vocals 1972–1979), Brent Mydland (keyboards, vocals 1979–1990), and Vince Welnick (keyboards 1990–1995). Pianist Bruce Hornsby was a touring member from 1990 to 1992, as well as guesting with the band on occasion before and after.

The fans of the Grateful Dead, some of whom followed the band from concert to concert for years, are known as “Deadheads” and are known for their dedication to the band’s music.[6][7] The band and its following (Deadheads) are closely associated with the hippie movement and were seen as a form of institution in the culture of America for many years. Former members of the Grateful Dead, along with other musicians, toured as the Dead in 2003, 2004, and 2009 after touring asthe Other Ones in 1998, 2000, and 2002. There are many contemporary incarnations of the Dead, with the most prominent touring acts being Furthur, Phil Lesh & Friends, RatDog, and the Rhythm Devils with drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. The group is slated to officially perform together again for their fiftieth anniversary, with Trey Anastasio of Phish taking the role of Jerry Garcia.[18]

The Best of the Doors


I Doors sono stati un gruppo musicale statunitense, fondato nel 1965 da Jim Morrison (cantante), Ray Manzarek (tastierista), Robby Krieger (chitarrista) e John Densmore (batterista), e scioltosi definitivamente dopo otto anni di carriera effettiva nel 1973[2], due anni dopo la morte di Jim Morrison (avvenuta il 3 luglio del 1971). Sono considerati uno dei gruppi più influenti e controversi nella storia della musica, alla quale hanno unito con successo elementi blues, psichedelia[2] e jazz[3][4]. Molti dei loro brani, come Light My Fire, The End, Hello, I Love You e Riders on the Storm, sono considerati dei classici e sono stati reinterpretati da numerosi artisti delle generazioni successive.

The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, drummer John Densmore and guitaristRobby Krieger. The band took its name from the title of Aldous Huxley‘s book The Doors of Perception,[2] which itself was a reference to a William Blake quote: “If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite.”[3] They were among the most controversial, influential and unique rock acts of the 1960s and beyond, mostly because of Morrison’s wild, poetic[4] lyrics and charismatic but unpredictable stage persona. After Morrison’s death on 3 July 1971, aged 27, the remaining members continued as a trio until disbanding in 1973.[5]

Signing with Elektra Records in 1966, the Doors released eight albums between 1967 and 1971. All but one hit the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 and went platinum or better. The 1967 release of The Doors was the first in a series of top ten albums in the United States, followed by Strange Days (1967), Waiting for the Sun (1968), The Soft Parade (1969), Morrison Hotel (1970), Absolutely Live (1970) and L.A. Woman (1971), with 21 Gold, 14 Platinum and 5 Multi-Platinum album awards in the United States alone.[6] The band’s biggest hits are “Light My Fire” (US, number 1), “People Are Strange” (US, number 12), “Love Me Two Times” (US, number 25), “Hello, I Love You” (US, number 1), “The Unknown Soldier“, (US, number 39), “Touch Me” (US, number 3), “Love Her Madly” (US, number 11), and “Riders On The Storm” (US, number 14). After Morrison’s death in 1971, the surviving trio released two albums Other Voices and Full Circle with Manzarek and Krieger sharing lead vocals. The three members also collaborated on the spoken-word recording of Morrison’s An American Prayer in 1978 and on the “Orange County Suite” for a 1997 boxed set. Manzarek, Krieger and Densmore reunited in 2000 for an episode of VH1’s “Storytellers” and subsequently recorded Stoned Immaculate: The Music of the Doors with a variety of vocalists.

Although the Doors’ active career ended in 1973, their popularity has persisted. According to the RIAA, they have sold 36.6 million certified units in the US[7] and over 100 million records worldwide,[8] making them one of the best-selling bands of all time.[9] The Doors has been listed as one of the greatest artists of all time by many magazines, including Rolling Stone, which ranked them 41st on its list of The 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[10] The Doors were the first American band to accumulate eight consecutive gold and platinum LPs.[11]

In 2002 Manzarek and Krieger started playing together again, branding themselves as the Doors of the 21st Century, with Ian Astbury of the The Cult on vocals. Densmore opted to sit out and, along with the Morrison estate, sued the duo over proper use of the band name and won. After a short time as Riders On the Storm, they settled on the name Manzarek-Krieger and continued to tour until Manzarek’s death in 2013, at the age of 74.

Three of the band’s studio albums, The Doors (1967), L.A. Woman (1971), and Strange Days (1967), were featured in the Rolling Stone list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, at positions 42, 362 and 407 respectively.

The band, their work, and Morrison’s celebrity are considered important to the counterculture of the 1960s.[12][13][14][15][16]

The Doors were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.

Dedicato a chi ha colpito il mio sentire, chi mi ha regalato sensazioni e riflessioni e a chi in esse si riconosce.Se qualcosa resta,se briciole rimangono In chi mi legge nulla è stato vano. Ovunque si posi il tuo sguardo, vedi la natura intorno,ovunque tu vada hai un sentiero. Ovunque tu sia cerca nel cuore. Tutto è vibrazione, musica, un’unica fonte.Tutto è AMORE, non lo tenere per te,non servirebbe a nulla, regalalo.


Reflections of Fantasy poetry that costs nothing, sometimes driven away like crazy. Smile in your heart that gives hope darkened by shabby reality that give breath Wear dreams, make them fly and be more alive. © Poetyca In colored notes, thoughts, breathe in the time left on emotions. I try to share my feeling

Inner path occurred between 1998 and 2010.

Dedicated to those who hit my feelings, who gave me feelings and thoughts in them and who riconosce.Se something is, if people read my crumbs remain in nothing is in vain. Wherever you lay your eyes, see the nature around wherever you go you have a path. Wherever you look in my heart. Everything is vibration, music, single font .All is LOVE, not hold for you, would serve no purpose, given away.
