R.E.M. – Best of R.E.M. – In Time (1988 – 2003) – Full album.


I R.E.M. sono stati un gruppo rock statunitense attivo dal 1980 al 2011.[2]

Formatosi ad Athens (Georgia) il 5 aprile 1980 (data riconosciuta dalla stessa band come atto di fondazione vera e propria del gruppo, che provava assieme sotto diversi nomi già dal 1979), la sigla R.E.M. sta per rapid eye movement, la fase del sonno in cui si sogna; i componenti del gruppo scelsero tale nome anche perché “suonava bene”. La pronuncia inglese è lettera per lettera (/ɑː iː ɛm/), ma in italiano viene generalmente pronunciata come acronimo (“rèm”).

Nell’arco degli ultimi 25 anni, i R.E.M. sono stati riconosciuti come uno dei gruppi più importanti per la definizione dell’estetica della musica underground e indie degli Stati Uniti.[3] La loro influenza, infatti, si estende ancora oggi su moltissime formazioni, etichette e scene musicali.[4]

Il gruppo ha virtualmente definito l’espressione “rock alternativo” degli anni ottanta (college rock)[5], dimostrando alle stazioni radio, un po’ alla volta, che trasmettere brani con prevalente uso delle chitarre non era una cosa negativa.[6]

Nella loro trentennale carriera hanno venduto all’incirca 85 milioni di dischi.[7]

R.E.M. was an American rock band from Athens, Georgia, formed in 1980 by singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills, and drummer Bill Berry. One of the first popular alternative rock bands, R.E.M. released its first single, “Radio Free Europe“, in 1981 on the independent record label Hib-Tone. The single was followed by the Chronic Town EP in 1982, the band’s first release on I.R.S. Records. In 1983, the group released its critically acclaimed debut album, Murmur, and built its reputation over the next few years through subsequent releases, constant touring, and the support of college radio. Following years of underground success, R.E.M. achieved a mainstream hit in 1987 with the single “The One I Love“. The group signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1988, and began to espouse political and environmental concerns while playing large arenas worldwide.

By the early 1990s, when alternative rock began to experience broad mainstream success, R.E.M. was viewed by subsequent acts such as Nirvana and Pavement as a pioneer of the genre and released its two most commercially successful albums, catapulting it to international fame, Out of Time (1991) and Automatic for the People(1992), which veered from the band’s established sound. R.E.M.’s 1994 release, Monster, was a return to a more rock-oriented sound, but still continued its run of success. The band began its first tour in six years to support the album; the tour was marred by medical emergencies suffered by three band members. In 1996, R.E.M. re-signed with Warner Bros. for a reported US$80 million, at the time the most expensive recording contract in history. Its 1996 release, New Adventures in Hi-Fi, though critically acclaimed, fared worse commercially than expected. The following year, Bill Berry left the band, while Buck, Mills, and Stipe continued the group as a trio. Through some changes in musical style, the band continued its career into the next decade with mixed critical and commercial success, despite having sold more than 85 million records worldwide and becoming one of the world’s best-selling music artists of all time.[4] In 2007, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. R.E.M. disbanded amicably in September 2011, announcing the split on its website.

Gli occhi al cielo


Gli occhi al cielo

Povero cuore
che cerchi percorsi
vorresti voci vicine
ed il deserto attraversi
tra sospiri infiniti
che al vento
si affidano ad occhi socchiusi
Uomo che navighi la vita
e ti areni su remote scogliere
in cerca di un faro
che indichi il luogo
dove aprire il pugno
rimasto a lungo chiuso
a trattenere lacrime e sale
– Tu non temere –
ed ascolta la guida leggera
che divien brezza nelle notti di luna
e raccoglie i sospiri di vento
asciuga in carezza lacrime
sospinge in palpiti il cuore
se soltanto volgessi gli occhi al cielo

Eyes to the sky

Poor heart
you’re looking for paths
would like to close items
and the desert crossing
between endless sighs
that the wind
rely on squinting
Man surfing life
and you stranded on remote reefs
in search of a lighthouse
indicating the place
where open fist
long been closed
to hold back tears and halls
– You do not worry –
and listen to the guide light
which becomes a breeze in the moon
and collects the sighs of wind
dries tears caress
drives in beating heart
if only he turned his eyes to heaven

Preghiera – Prayer


Preghiera

« Il pregare è nella religione ciò che il pensiero è nella filosofia. Il senso religioso prega come l’organo del pensiero pensa »

Novalis
La preghiera è una delle pratiche comuni a tutte le religioni. Essa consiste nel rivolgersi alla dimensione del sacro con la parola o con il pensiero; gli scopi della preghiera possono essere molteplici: invocare, chiedere un aiuto, lodare, ringraziare, santificare, o esprimere devozione o abbandono. La preghiera è solitamente considerata come il momento in cui l’uomo ‘parla’ al sacro, mentre la fase inversa è la meditazione, durante la quale è il sacro che ‘parla’ all’uomo.
La preghiera può essere personale, oppure liturgica; solitamente questa seconda forma si ritrova come preghiera scritta (o comunque tramandata in qualche modo). Una delle forme di preghiera più diffuse è il canto devozionale.
Secondo la dottrina cattolica, quando l’uomo prega si eleva a Dio in modo cosciente. Il “tappeto di preghiera” è un piccolo tappeto che i musulmani usano per inginocchiarsi durante le preghiere giornaliere.
Forme di preghiera pubblica
Nell’ebraismo sono previsti per gli uomini tre preghiere nei giorni feriali, in ricordo dei sacrifici di animali e vegetali che venivano praticati nel Santuario: l’Arvith, Shachrith e Minchah. Le preghiere sono quattro il sabato e altri giorni particolari (5 volte per Yom Kippur). L’ordine delle preghiere si trova nel Siddur, il tradizionale libro delle preghiere ebraico. Sebbene la preghiera individuale sia valida, pregare con un minyan (numero minimo di dieci maschi adulti) è considerato ideale. Molte sinagoghe hanno un hazzan, cioè un cantore che guida la preghiera della comunità.
Nel Cristianesimo la forma classica e più antica di preghiera pubblica sono le ore canoniche, cioè momenti fissi durante la giornata in cui vengono recitati (o cantati) dei salmi più altre preghiere, dalla bibbia o composte dalle Chiese, oltre a inni e intercessioni. Di origine antichissima (la struttura è stata ereditata dalla preghiera ebraica sinagogale e del Tempio di Gerusalemme), le ore canoniche ebbero particolare rilievo nelle comunità monastiche come ufficio corale.
Nell’Islam la preghiera canonica è chiamata ṣalāt, prescritta 5 volte al giorno, in forma singola o collettiva, anche se sono previste e consigliate altre preghiere volontarie.
Forme di preghiera privata
Nelle devozioni private esistono vari tipi di preghiere, che hanno un unico fine: elevare l’anima a Dio. Elevare l’anima a Dio è infatti la definizione ufficiale della preghiera così come riportato dal Catechismo della Chiesa Cattolica.
In realtà, come dice la Bibbia (Sap 1,7 e At 17,28), noi già viviamo ed esistiamo dentro Dio; come pure affermano alcune tradizioni religiose antiche dei popoli asiatici e americani. Essendo però Dio di natura trascendente e spirituale, la sua presenza non appare sempre immediatamente percepibile ed evidente. Ecco perché è necessario elevare l’anima a Dio, cioè compiere un atto di volontà (la volontà è una delle tre potenze dell’anima insieme alla memoria e all’intelletto) che ci rende più attenti, più sensibili, più partecipi di questa presenza che è sempre e ovunque. I modi di muovere la volontà e dunque l’anima a questa consapevolezza e a questa comunione sono molti e diversi. La tradizione cattolica ne enumera svariate decine che sono state ispirate dai santi nel corso dei secoli passati e che hanno trovato una eco più o meno duratura e diffusa, in funzione della semplicità, della praticità e della bellezza delle stesse modalità di preghiera.
Tra le forme private di preghiera più diffuse dalla tradizione cristiana troviamo:
la preghiera biblica (che utilizza direttamente le parole della Sacra Scrittura oppure che parte dalla lettura della Bibbia per poi aprirsi al colloquio personale con Dio, come fa la lectio divina);
il colloquio personale con Dio (che l’uomo può vivere in qualunque tempo e luogo);
il Santo Rosario (una forma devozionale nata nel Medioevo e diffusa oggi in tutti i popoli cattolici);
il culto delle immagini (fondato sul fatto che l’immagine sacra subito richiama alla mente la persona divina rappresentata e diffuso, oltre che nelle chiese, specialmente nei luoghi dove le chiese e i luoghi di culto pubblico sono lontani); tale culto non è accettato dal Protestantesimo;
la via crucis (devozione nata nel Medioevo e diffusa nel XVII secolo da san Leonardo da Porto Maurizio);
la vigilanza (cioè l’atteggiamento interiore dell’uomo che vigila sui suoi pensieri, discernendo quelli buoni da quelli malvagi per coltivare quelli buoni e rinnegare, dissolvere, dimenticare quelli malvagi);
la ripetizione (cioè l’atto della volontà che dà inizio ad un ciclo ripetitivo di brevi invocazioni o preghiere ben conosciute, che l’uomo ripete dentro di sé fino a formare un tappeto morbido e robusto sul quale l’anima si stende e si rilassa per poi entrare nella contemplazione);
la contemplazione (è la forma di preghiera considerata più santa, in quanto comunione stessa con il Santo, essendo stata definita dall’uomo la santità come la natura stessa di Dio; la contemplazione è la presenza viva di Dio nell’uomo che ispira direttamente pensieri, parole, immagini, azioni, per cui nella contemplazione l’uomo vede ciò che Dio vede, sente ciò che Dio sente, fa ciò che Dio fa);
la meditazione (è il fluire o il sorgere di pensieri che vengono suggeriti, stimolati, ispirati dalle fonti più diverse: ricordi, incontri, discorsi, letture, fatti, immagini, simboli, etc. Essendo immenso il bacino di spunti per la meditazione, essa è probabilmente la forma di orazione più praticata di ogni tempo).

Prayer
Prayer is a form of religious practice that seeks to activate a volitional rapport to God or spirit through deliberate practice. Prayer may be either individual or communal and take place in public or in private. It may involve the use of words or song. When language is used, prayer may take the form of a hymn, incantation, formal creed, or a spontaneous utterance in the praying person. There are different forms of prayer such as petitionary prayer, prayers of supplication, thanksgiving, and worship/praise. Prayer may be directed towards a deity, spirit, deceased person, or lofty idea, for the purpose of worshipping, requesting guidance, requesting assistance, confessing sins or to express one’s thoughts and emotions. Thus, people pray for many reasons such as personal benefit or for the sake of others.
Most major religions involve prayer in one way or another. Some ritualize the act of prayer, requiring a strict sequence of actions or placing a restriction on who is permitted to pray, while others teach that prayer may be practiced spontaneously by anyone at any time.
Scientific studies regarding the use of prayer have mostly concentrated on its effect on the healing of sick or injured people. The efficacy of petition in prayer for physical healing to a deity has been evaluated in numerous studies, with contradictory results There has been some criticism of the way the studies were conducted
Forms of prayer
Various spiritual traditions offer a wide variety of devotional acts. There are morning and evening prayers, graces said over meals, and reverent physical gestures. Some Christians bow their heads and fold their hands. Some Native Americans regard dancing as a form of prayer. Some Sufis whirl. Hindus chant mantras. Orthodox Jews sway their bodies back and forth[10] and Salah for Muslims (“kneel and prostrate as seen on the right”). Quakers keep silent. Some pray according to standardized rituals and liturgies, while others prefer extemporaneous prayers. Still others combine the two.
These methods show a variety of understandings to prayer, which are led by underlying beliefs.
These beliefs may be that
the finite can communicate with the infinite
the infinite is interested in communicating with the finite
prayer is intended to inculcate certain attitudes in the one who prays, rather than to influence the recipient
prayer is intended to train a person to focus on the recipient through philosophy and intellectual contemplation
prayer is intended to enable a person to gain a direct experience of the recipient
prayer is intended to affect the very fabric of reality as we perceive it
prayer is a catalyst for change in oneself and/or one’s circumstances, or likewise those of third party beneficiaries
the recipient desires and appreciates prayer
or any combination of these.[citation needed]
The act of prayer is attested in written sources as early as 5000 years ago. Some anthropologists, such as Sir Edward Burnett Tylor and Sir James George Frazer, believed that the earliest intelligent modern humans practiced something that we would recognize today as prayer.
Friedrich Heiler is often cited in Christian circles for his systematic Typology of Prayer which lists six types of prayer: primitive, ritual, Greek cultural, philosophical, mystical, and prophetic
The act of worship
Prayer has many different forms. Prayer may be done privately and individually, or it may be done corporately in the presence of fellow believers. Prayer can be incorporated into a daily “thought life”, in which one is in constant communication with a god. Some people pray throughout all that is happening during the day and seek guidance as the day progresses. This is actually regarded as a requirement in several Christian denominations,[15] although enforcement is not possible nor desirable. There can be many different answers to prayer, just as there are many ways to interpret an answer to a question, if there in fact comes an answer.[15] Some may experience audible, physical, or mental epiphanies. If indeed an answer comes, the time and place it comes is considered random. Some outward acts that sometimes accompany prayer are: anointing with oil;[16] ringing a bell;[17] burning incense or paper;[18] lighting a candle or candles;[19] facing a specific direction (i.e. towards Mecca[20] or the East); making the sign of the cross. One less noticeable act related to prayer is fasting.
A variety of body postures may be assumed, often with specific meaning (mainly respect or adoration) associated with them: standing; sitting; kneeling; prostrate on the floor; eyes opened; eyes closed; hands folded or clasped; hands upraised; holding hands with others; a laying on of hands and others. Prayers may be recited from memory, read from a book of prayers, or composed spontaneously as they are prayed. They may be said, chanted, or sung. They may be with musical accompaniment or not. There may be a time of outward silence while prayers are offered mentally. Often, there are prayers to fit specific occasions, such as the blessing of a meal, the birth or death of a loved one, other significant events in the life of a believer, or days of the year that have special religious significance. Details corresponding to specific traditions are outlined below.

Pre-Christian Europe

Etruscan, Greek, and Roman paganism
In the pre-Christian religions of Greeks and Romans (Ancient Greek religion, Roman religion), ceremonial prayer was highly formulaic and ritualized.[21][22] The Iguvine Tables contain a supplication that can be translated, “If anything was said improperly, if anything was done improperly, let it be as if it were done correctly.”
The formalism and formulaic nature of these prayers led them to be written down in language that may have only been partially understood by the writer, and our texts of these prayers may in fact be garbled. Prayers in Etruscan were used in the Roman world by augurs and other oracles long after Etruscan became a dead language. The Carmen Arvale and the Carmen Saliare are two specimens of partially preserved prayers that seem to have been unintelligible to their scribes, and whose language is full of archaisms and difficult passages.
Roman prayers and sacrifices were often envisioned as legal bargains between deity and worshipper. The Roman principle was expressed as do ut des: “I give, so that you may give.” Cato the Elder’s treatise on agriculture contains many examples of preserved traditional prayers; in one, a farmer addresses the unknown deity of a possibly sacred grove, and sacrifices a pig in order to placate the god or goddess of the place and beseech his or her permission to cut down some trees from the grove
Germanic paganism
An amount of accounts of prayers to the gods in Germanic paganism survived the process of Christianization, though only a single prayer has survived without the interjection of Christian references. This prayer is recorded in stanzas 2 and 3 of the poem Sigrdrífumál, compiled in the 13th century Poetic Edda from earlier traditional sources, where the valkyrie Sigrdrífa prays to the gods and the earth after being woken by the hero Sigurd.
A prayer to the bigger god Odin is mentioned in chapter 2 of the Völsunga saga where King Rerir prays for a child. His prayer is answered by Frigg, wife of Odin, who sends him an apple, which is dropped on his lap by Frigg’s servant in the form of a crow while Rerir is sitting on a mound. Rerir’s wife eats the apple and is then pregnant with the hero Völsung. In stanza 9 of the poem Oddrúnargrátr, a prayer is made to “kind wights, Frigg and Freyja, and many gods,” although since the poem is often considered one of the youngest poems in the Poetic Edda, the passage has been the matter of some debate.[26]
In chapter 21 of Jómsvíkinga saga, wishing to turn the tide of the Battle of Hjörungavágr, Haakon Sigurdsson eventually finds his prayers answered by the goddesses Þorgerðr Hölgabrúðr and Irpa (the first of the two described as Haakon’s patron goddess) who appear in the battle, kill many of the opposing fleet, and cause the remnants of their forces to flee. However, this depiction of a pagan prayer has been criticized as inaccurate due to the description of Haakon dropping to his knees.
The 11th century manuscript for the Anglo-Saxon charm Æcerbot presents what is thought to be an originally pagan prayer for the fertility of the speaker’s crops and land, though Christianization is apparent throughout the charm.[28] The 8th century Wessobrunn Prayer has been proposed as a Christianized pagan prayer and compared to the pagan Völuspá[29] and the Merseburg Incantations, the latter recorded in the 9th or 10th century but of much older traditional origins
Abrahamic religions
Bible
In the common Bible of the Abrahamic religions, various forms of prayer appear; the most common forms being petition, thanksgiving, and worship. The longest book in the Bible is the Book of Psalms, 150 religious songs which are often regarded as prayers. Other well-known Biblical prayers include the Song of Moses (Exodus 15:1-18), the Song of Hannah (1 Samuel 2:1-10), and the Magnificat (Luke 1:46-55). But perhaps the best-known prayer in the Christian Bible is the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9–13; Luke 11:2-4).
See also: Tanakh, New Testament, Prayer in the Hebrew Bible, and Prayer in the New Testament
Judaism
Jews pray three times a day, with lengthier prayers on special days, such as the Shabbat and Jewish holidays. The siddur is the prayerbook used by Jews all over the world, containing a set order of daily prayers. Jewish prayer is usually described as having two aspects: kavanah (intention) and keva (the ritualistic, structured elements).
The most important Jewish prayers are the Shema Yisrael (“Hear O Israel”) and the Amidah (“the standing prayer”).
Communal prayer is preferred over solitary prayer, and a quorum of 10 adult males (a minyan) is considered by Orthodox Judaism a prerequisite for several communal prayers.
Rationalist approach to prayer
In this view, ultimate goal of prayer is to help train a person to focus on divinity through philosophy and intellectual contemplation. This approach was taken by Maimonides and the other medieval rationalists. One example of this approach to prayer is noted by Rabbi Steven Weil, who was appointed the Orthodox Union’s Executive-Vice President in 2009. He notes that the word “prayer” is a derivative of the Latin “precari”, which means “to beg”. The Hebrew equivalent “tefilah”, however, along with its root “pelel” or its reflexive “l’hitpallel”, means the act of self-analysis or self-evaluation. This approach is sometimes described as the person praying having a dialogue or conversation with God.
Educational approach to prayer
In this view, prayer is not a conversation. Rather, it is meant to inculcate certain attitudes in the one who prays, but not to influence. This has been the approach of Rabbenu Bachya, Yehuda Halevy, Joseph Albo, Samson Raphael Hirsch, and Joseph Dov Soloveitchik. This view is expressed by Rabbi Nosson Scherman in the overview to the Artscroll Siddur (p. XIII); note that Scherman goes on to also affirm the Kabbalistic view (see below).
Kabbalistic approach to prayer
Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism) uses a series of kavanot, directions of intent, to specify the path the prayer ascends in the dialog with God, to increase its chances of being answered favorably. Kabbalists ascribe a higher meaning to the purpose of prayer, which is no less than affecting the very fabric of reality itself, restructuring and repairing the universe in a real fashion. In this view, every word of every prayer, and indeed, even every letter of every word, has a precise meaning and a precise effect. Prayers thus literally affect the mystical forces of the universe, and repair the fabric of creation.
Among Jews, this approach has been taken by the Chassidei Ashkenaz (German pietists of the Middle-Ages), the Arizal’s Kabbalist tradition, Ramchal, most of Hassidism, the Vilna Gaon, and Jacob Emden.
Christianity
Main articles: Prayer in Christianity and Christian worship
Christian prayers are quite varied. They can be completely spontaneous, or read entirely from a text, like the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. Probably the most common and universal prayer among Christians is the Lord’s Prayer, which according to the gospel accounts is how Jesus taught his disciples to pray. Some Protestant denominations choose not to recite the Lord’s Prayer or other rote prayers.
Christians generally pray to God or to the Father. Some Christians (e.g., Catholics, Orthodox) will also ask the righteous in heaven and “in Christ,” such as Virgin Mary or other saints to intercede by praying on their behalf (intercession of saints). Formulaic closures include “through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, through all the ages of ages,” and “in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”
It is customary among Protestants to end prayers with “In Jesus’ name, Amen” or “In the name of Christ, Amen”[34] However, the most commonly used closure in Christianity is simply “Amen” (from a Hebrew adverb used as a statement of affirmation or agreement, usually translated as so be it).
There is also the form of prayer called hesychast which is a repetitious type of prayer for the purpose of meditation. In the Western or Latin Rite of Catholic Church, probably the most common is the Rosary; In the Eastern Church (the Eastern rites of the Catholic Church and Orthodox Church), the Jesus Prayer.
Roman Catholic tradition includes specific prayers and devotions as acts of reparation which do not involve a petition for a living or deceased beneficiary, but aim to repair the sins of others, e.g. for the repair of the sin of blasphemy performed by others
Pentecostalism
In Pentecostal congregations, prayer is often done by speaking in a foreign tongue, a practice now known as glossolalia.[36] Practitioners of Pentecostal glossolalia may claim that the languages they speak in prayer are real foreign languages, and that the ability to speak those languages spontaneously is a gift of the Holy Spirit;[37][38] however, many people outside the movement have offered alternative views. George Barton Cutten suggested that glossolalia was a sign of mental illness.[39] Felicitas Goodman suggested that tongue speakers were under a form of hypnosis.[40] Others suggest that it is a learned behaviour. Some of these views have allegedly been refuted
Christian Science
Christian Science teaches that prayer is a spiritualization of thought or an understanding of God and of the nature of the underlying spiritual creation. Adherents believe that this can result in healing, by bringing spiritual reality (the “Kingdom of Heaven” in Biblical terms) into clearer focus in the human scene. The world as it appears to the senses is regarded as a distorted version of the world of spiritual ideas. Prayer can heal the distortion. Christian Scientists believe that prayer does not change the spiritual creation but gives a clearer view of it, and the result appears in the human scene as healing: the human picture adjusts to coincide more nearly with the divine reality. Christian Scientists do not practice intercessory prayer as it is commonly understood, and they generally avoid combining prayer with medical treatment in the belief that the two practices tend to work against each other. (However, the choice of healing method is regarded as a matter for the individual, and the Christian Science Church exerts no pressure on members to avoid medical treatment if they wish to avail of it as an alternative to Christian Science healing.) Prayer works through love: the recognition of God’s creation as spiritual, intact, and inherently lovable

Prevalence of prayer for health

Some modalities of alternative medicine employ prayer. A survey released in May 2004 by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health in the United States, found that in 2002, 43% of Americans pray for their own health, 24% pray for others’ health, and 10% participate in a prayer group for their own healt
Islam
Muslims pray a ritualistic prayer called salah or salat in Arabic, facing the Kaaba in Mecca, five times a day. The command to pray is in the Quran in several chapters. The prophet Muhammed showed each Muslim the true method of offering prayers thus the same method is observed till date. There is the “call for prayer” (adhan or azaan), where the muezzin calls for all the followers to stand together for the prayer. The prayer consists of standing, by mentioning -àllàh o -àqbàr (God is great) followed by recitation of the first chapter of the Quran. After the person bends and praises god, then prostrates and again praises god. The prayer ends with the following words “peace and blessings be upon you”. During the prayer a Muslim cannot talk or do anything else besides praying. Once the prayer is complete one can offer voluntary prayers or supplicate -àllàh for his needs. There are also many standard duas or supplications, also in Arabic, to be recited at various times, e.g. for one’s parents, after salah, before eating. Muslims may also say dua in their own words and languages for any issue they wish to communicate with God in the hope that God will answer their prayers.[20] Certain Shia fiqhs pray 3 times a day.
Bahá’í
Main article: Prayer in the Bahá’í Faith
Bahá’u’lláh, the Báb, and `Abdu’l-Bahá have revealed many prayers for general use, and some for specific occasions, including for unity, detachment, spiritual upliftment, and healing among others. Bahá’ís are also required to recite each day one of three obligatory prayers revealed by Bahá’u’lláh. The believers have been enjoined to face in the direction of the Qiblih when reciting their Obligatory Prayer. The longest obligatory prayer may be recited at any time during the day; another, of medium length, is recited once in the morning, once at midday, and once in the evening; and the shortest can be recited anytime between noon and sunset. Bahá’ís also read from and meditate on the scriptures every morning and evening.
Eastern religions
In contrast with Western religion, Eastern religion for the most part discards worship and places devotional emphasis on the practice of meditation alongside scriptural study. Consequently, prayer is seen as a form of meditation or an adjunct practice to meditation
Buddhism
n certain Buddhist sects, prayer accompanies meditation. Buddhism for the most part sees prayer as a secondary, supportive practice to meditation and scriptural study. Gautama Buddha claimed that human beings possess the capacity and potential to be liberated, or enlightened, through contemplation, leading to insight. Prayer is seen mainly as a powerful psycho-physical practice that can enhance meditation.[48]
In the earliest Buddhist tradition, the Theravada, and in the later Mahayana tradition of Zen (or Chán), prayer plays only an ancillary role. It is largely a ritual expression of wishes for success in the practice and in helping all beings.[49][50][51][52]
The skillful means (Sanskrit: upaya) of the transfer of merit (Sanskrit: parinamana) is an evocation and prayer. Moreover, indeterminate buddhas are available for intercession as they reside in awoken-fields (Sanskrit: buddha-kshetra).
The nirmanakaya of a awoken-field is what is generally known and understood as mandala. The opening and closing of the ring (Sanskrit: mandala) is an active prayer. An active prayer is a mindful activity, an activity in which mindfulness is not just cultivated but is.[53] A common prayer is “May the merit of my practice, adorn Buddhas’ Pure Lands, requite the fourfold kindness from above, and relieve the suffering of the three life-journeys below. Universally wishing sentient beings, Friends, foes, and karmic creditors, all to activate the bodhi mind, and all to be reborn in the Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss.” (願以此功德 莊嚴佛淨土 上報四重恩 下濟三途苦 普願諸眾生 冤親諸債主 悉發菩提心 同生極樂國)[54]
The Generation Stage (Sanskrit: utpatti-krama) of Vajrayana involves prayer elements.[55]
The Tibetan Buddhism tradition emphasizes an instructive and devotional relationship to a guru; this may involve devotional practices known as guru yoga which are congruent with prayer. It also appears that Tibetan Buddhism posits the existence of various deities, but the peak view of the tradition is that the deities or yidam are no more existent or real than the continuity (Sanskrit: santana; refer mindstream) of the practitioner, environment and activity. But how practitioners engage yidam or tutelary deities will depend upon the level or more appropriately yana at which they are practicing. At one level, one may pray to a deity for protection or assistance, taking a more subordinate role. At another level, one may invoke the deity, on a more equal footing. And at a higher level one may deliberately cultivate the idea that one has become the deity, whilst remaining aware that its ultimate nature is shunyata. The views of the more esoteric yana are impenetrable for those without direct experience and empowerment.
Pure Land Buddhism emphasizes the recitation by devotees of prayer-like mantras, a practice often called Nembutsu.[56]:190 On one level it is said that reciting these mantras can ensure rebirth into a sambhogakaya land (Sanskrit: buddha-kshetra) after bodily dissolution, a sheer ball spontaneously co-emergent to a buddha’s enlightened intention. According to Shinran, the founder of the Pure Land Buddhism tradition that is most prevalent in the US[56]:193[57] “for the long haul nothing is as efficacious as the Nembutsu.”[56]:197[58] On another, the practice is a form of meditation aimed at achieving realization.[citation needed]
But beyond all these practices the Buddha emphasized the primacy of individual practice and experience. He said that supplication to gods or deities was not necessary. Nevertheless, today many lay people in East Asian countries pray to the Buddha in ways that resemble Western prayer—asking for intervention and offering devotion.
Hinduism
Hinduism has incorporated many kinds of prayer (Sanskrit: prārthanā), from fire-based rituals to philosophical musings. While chanting involves ‘by dictum’ recitation of timeless verses or verses with timings and notations, dhyanam involves deep meditation (however short or long) on the preferred deity/God. Again the object to which prayers are offered could be a persons referred as devtas, trinity or incarnation of either devtas or trinity or simply plain formless meditation as practiced by the ancient sages. All of these are directed to fulfilling personal needs or deep spiritual enlightenment. Ritual invocation was part and parcel of the Vedic religion and as such permeated their sacred texts. Indeed, the highest sacred texts of the Hindus, the Vedas, are a large collection of mantras and prayer rituals. Classical Hinduism came to focus on extolling a single supreme force, Brahman, that is made manifest in several lower forms as the familiar gods of the Hindu pantheon[dubious – discuss]. Hindus in India have numerous devotional movements. Hindus may pray to the highest absolute God Brahman, or more commonly to Its three manifestations namely creator god called Brahma, preserver god called Vishnu and destroyer god (so that the creation cycle can start afresh) Shiva, and at the next level to Vishnu’s avatars (earthly appearances) Rama and Krishna or to many other male or female deities. Typically, Hindus pray with their hands (the palms) joined together in pranam. The hand gesture is similar to the popular Indian greeting namaste.
Jainism
Although Jains believe that no spirit or divine being can assist them on their path, they do hold some influence, and on special occasions, Jains will pray for right knowledge to the twenty-four Tirthankaras (saintly teachers) or sometimes to Hindu deities such as Ganesha.
Shinto
The practices involved in Shinto prayer are heavily influenced by Buddhism; Japanese Buddhism has also been strongly influenced by Shinto in turn. The most common and basic form of devotion involves throwing a coin, or several, into a collection box, ringing a bell, clapping one’s hands, and contemplating one’s wish or prayer silently. The bell and hand clapping are meant to wake up or attract the attention of the kami of the shrine, so that one’s prayer may be heard.
Shinto prayers quite frequently consist of wishes or favors asked of the kami, rather than lengthy praises or devotions. Unlike in certain other faiths, it is not considered irregular or inappropriate to ask favors of the kami in this way, and indeed many shrines are associated with particular favors, such as success on exams.
In addition, one may write one’s wish on a small wooden tablet, called an ema, and leave it hanging at the shrine, where the kami can read it. If the wish is granted, one may return to the shrine to leave another ema as an act of thanksgiving.
Sikhism
The Ardās (Punjabi: ਅਰਦਾਸ) is a Sikh prayer that is done before performing or after undertaking any significant task; after reciting the daily Banis (prayers); or completion of a service like the Paath (scripture reading/recitation), kirtan (hymn-singing) program or any other religious program. In Sikhism, these prayers are also said before and after eating. The prayer is a plea to God to support and help the devotee with whatever he or she is about to undertake or has done.
The Ardas is usually always done standing up with folded hands. The beginning of the Ardas is strictly set by the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh. When it comes to conclusion of this prayer, the devotee uses word like “Waheguru please bless me in the task that I am about to undertake” when starting a new task or “Akal Purakh, having completed the hymn-singing, we ask for your continued blessings so that we can continue with your memory and remember you at all times”, etc. The word “Ardās” is derived from Persian word ‘Arazdashat’, meaning a request, supplication, prayer, petition or an address to a superior authority.
Ardās is a unique prayer based on the fact that it is one of the few well-known prayers in the Sikh religion that was not written in its entirety by the Gurus. The Ardās cannot be found within the pages of the Guru Granth Sahib because it is a continually changing devotional text that has evolved over time in order for it to encompass the feats, accomplishments, and feelings of all generations of Sikhs within its lines. Taking the various derivation of the word Ardās into account, the basic purpose of this prayer is an appeal to Waheguru for his protection and care, as well as being a plea for the welfare and prosperity of all mankind, and a means for the Sikhs to thank Waheguru for all that he has done
Taoism
Prayer in Taoism is less common than Fulu, which is the drawing and writing of supernatural talismans
Animism
Although prayer in its literal sense is not used in animism, communication with the spirit world is vital to the animist way of life. This is usually accomplished through a shaman who, through a trance, gains access to the spirit world and then shows the spirits’ thoughts to the people. Other ways to receive messages from the spirits include using astrology or contemplating fortune tellers and healers. The native religions in some parts of North, East and South Asia, America, Africa, and Oceania are often animistic.
America
The Aztec religion was not strictly animist. It had an ever increasing pantheon of deities, and the shamans performed ritual prayer to these deities in their respective temples. These shamans made petitions to the proper deities in exchange for a sacrifice offering: food, flowers, effigies, and animals, usually quail. But the larger the thing required from the God the larger the sacrifice had to be, and for the most important rites one would offer one’s own blood; by cutting his ears, arms, tongue, thighs, chest or genitals, and often a human life; either warrior, slave, or even self-sacrifice.[63]
The Pueblo Indians are known to have used prayer sticks, that is, sticks with feathers attached as supplicatory offerings. The Hopi Indians used prayer sticks as well, but they attached to it a small bag of sacred meat
Australia
In Australia, prayers to the “Great Wit” are performed by the “clever wapmen” and “clever women”, or kadji. These Aboriginal shamans use maban or mabain, the material that is believed to give them their purported magical powers
Neopaganism
Adherents to forms of modern Neopaganism pray to various gods. The most commonly worshiped and prayed to gods are those of Pre-Christian Europe, such as Celtic, Norse, or Graeco-Roman gods. Prayer can vary from sect to sect, and with some (such as Wicca) prayer may also be associated with ritual magick.
Theurgy and Western Esotericism
Practitioners of theurgy and western esotericism may practice a form of ritual which utilizes both pre-sanctioned prayers and names of God, and prayers “from the heart” that, when combined, allows the participant to ascend spiritually, and in some instances, induce a trance in which God or other spiritual beings may be realized. Very similar to hermetic qabala, and orthodox qabala, it is believed that prayer can influence both the physical and non-physical worlds. The use of ritualistic signs and names are believed to be archetypes in which the subconscious may take form as the Inner God, or another spiritual being, and the “prayer from the heart” to be that spiritual force speaking through the participant.
Meher Baba
The Indian spiritual teacher Meher Baba emphasized both the beauty of prayer as praise and the power of prayer as petition:
“The ideal prayer to the Lord is nothing more than spontaneous praise of His being. You praise Him, not in the spirit of bargain but in the spirit of self-forgetful appreciation of what He really is. You praise Him because He is praiseworthy. Your praise is a spontaneous appreciative response to his true being, as infinite light, infinite power and infinite bliss.”[66]
“Through repeated sincere prayers it is possible to effect an exit from the otherwise inexorable working out of the law of karma. The forgiveness asked from God evokes from Him His inscrutable grace, which alone can give new direction to the inexorable karmic determination

Se anche tu – If you too



Se anche tu
Negli occhi del mondo
ricerco la quiete
e non posso trovarla
nel cielo tra i voli sento sospiri
che accolgo in silenzio…
Ma se anche tu aprissi le ali
e cercassi la mia presenza…
Mi troveresti a volare a te accanto.

If you too

In the eyes of the world
I seek peace
And we can find
between flights in the sky hear sighing
that I accept in silence …
But if you opened my wings
and seek my presence …
Find me to fly next to you.

Led Zeppelin III and IV Sessions *RARE OUTTAKES*


I Led Zeppelin sono stati un gruppo musicale britannico formato nel 1968, considerato tra i grandi innovatori del rock e tra i principali pionieri dell’hard rock.

La loro musica, le cui radici affondano in generi diversi tra cui blues, rockabilly e folk, ha costituito una formula completamente inedita per l’epoca, finendo con l’influenzare in qualche modo tutti i gruppi rock del loro tempo e del futuro.[5][6]

Il gruppo, scioltosi nel 1980, anno della morte del batterista, fu composto per l’intero periodo della sua attività da Robert Plant (voce, armonica), Jimmy Page (chitarre), John Paul Jones (basso, tastiere) e John Bonham (batteria, percussioni).

La discografia del gruppo comprende nove album in studio pubblicati dal 1969 al 1982.[7] A partire dagli anni novanta hanno visto la luce diverse raccolte di brani, editi e inediti, e alcune incisioni di spettacoli dal vivo risalenti al periodo di attività. Degna di segnalazione è anche la circolazione di un cospicuo numero di bootleg sul mercato “non ufficiale”.

In seguito alla morte di Bonham, Page e Plant hanno proseguito la propria attività musicale come solisti,[8] incidendo insieme gli album No Quarter: Jimmy Page and Robert Plant Unledded e Walking into Clarksdale e ritrovandosi occasionalmente per esibirsi dal vivo nel corso di eventi commemorativi o celebrativi. I Led Zeppelin sono tra i gruppi di maggior successo commerciale nella storia della musica moderna: dal 1968 ad oggi il gruppo ha venduto oltre 300 milioni di dischi.[9]

Il 12 gennaio 1995 i Led Zeppelin sono stati introdotti nella Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In una classifica stilata nel 2003 dalla rivista Rolling Stone, i Led Zeppelin risultano al 14º posto tra i 100 musicisti più importanti di tutti i tempi:[10] la stessa Rolling Stone ha avuto modo di definire a più riprese i Led Zeppelin come “Il gruppo più pesante di tutti i tempi, indiscutibilmente uno dei gruppi più duraturi della storia del rock” e “il gruppo più importante degli anni settanta.[11][6]

Nella stessa misura, la Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ha affermato che l’influenza che il gruppo ha esercitato negli anni settanta è «rilevante come quella che i Beatles hanno avuto nel decennio precedente»[12] e l’emittente VH1 ha definito i Led Zeppelin come «il più importante gruppo rock della storia».[13]

Nel 2007, a seguito dell’incredibile richiesta di biglietti per la loro esibizione all’The O2 Arena di Londra (oltre 20 milioni di prenotazioni in circa 24 ore), il gruppo è entrato nel Guinness dei primati per la “maggior richiesta di biglietti per una singola esibizione dal vivo”.

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

Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist and keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. The band’s heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition as one of the progenitors of heavy metal, though their unique style drew from a wide variety of influences, including folk music.

After changing their name from the New Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin signed a deal with Atlantic Records that afforded them considerable artistic freedom. Although the group was initially unpopular with critics, they achieved significant commercial success with albums such as Led Zeppelin (1969), Led Zeppelin II (1969), Led Zeppelin III (1970), their untitled fourth album (1971), Houses of the Holy (1973), and Physical Graffiti (1975). Their fourth album, which features the track “Stairway to Heaven”, is among the most popular and influential works in rock music, and it helped to secure the group’s popularity.

Page wrote most of Led Zeppelin’s music, particularly early in their career, while Plant generally supplied the lyrics. Jones’ keyboard-based compositions later became central to the group’s catalogue, which featured increasing experimentation. The latter half of their career saw a series of record-breaking tours that earned the group a reputation for excess and debauchery. Although they remained commercially and critically successful, their output and touring schedule were limited during the late 1970s, and the group disbanded following Bonham’s death from alcohol-related asphyxia in 1980. In the decades that followed, the surviving members sporadically collaborated and participated in one-off Led Zeppelin reunions. The most successful of these was the 2007 Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert in London, with Jason Bonham taking his late father’s place behind the drums.

Led Zeppelin are widely considered one of the most successful, innovative, and influential rock groups in history. They are one of the best-selling music artists in the history of audio recording; various sources estimate the group’s record sales at 200 to 300 million units worldwide. With RIAA-certified sales of 111.5 million units, they are the second-best-selling band in the United States.[1] Each of their nine studio albums placed in the top 10 of the Billboard album chart and six reached the number-one spot.[2] Rolling Stone magazine described them as “the heaviest band of all time”,[3] “the biggest band of the ’70s”,[4] and “unquestionably one of the most enduring bands in rock history”.[5] They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995; the museum’s biography of the band states that they were “as influential” during the 1970s as the Beatles were during the 1960s.

Phil Collins – En Concert Complet a (Paris 2004)


Philip David Charles Collins (Londra, 30 gennaio 1951) è un cantautore, polistrumentista e musicista britannico, noto sia come solista sia come componente dello storico gruppo dei Genesis.

Collins è uno dei tre artisti (insieme a Paul McCartney e Michael Jackson), ad aver venduto oltre 150 milioni di album in tutto il mondo sia come solisti che come membri principali di una band[1].

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

Philip David Charles “Phil” Collins, LVO (born 30 January 1951),[6] is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, music producer and actor. He gained fame as both the drummer and lead singer for the rock group Genesis, and he also gained worldwide fame as a solo artist.

Collins is one of the most successful songwriters and performers of all time, singing the lead vocals on dozens of hit albums and singles in the UK and the US between 1976 and 2010, either as a solo artist or with Genesis. His solo singles, sometimes dealing with lost love and often featuring his distinctive gated reverb drum sound, ranged from the atmospheric “In the Air Tonight“, dance-rock of “Sussudio“, piano-driven power balladAgainst All Odds“, to the political and religious connotations of “Another Day in Paradise“. Collins has been described by AllMusic as “one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the ’80s and beyond”.[1]

Collins joined Genesis in 1970 as the group’s drummer and became their lead vocalist in 1975 following the departure of the original lead singer Peter Gabriel. His solo career, which was launched in 1981 and was heavily influenced by his personal life and soul music, brought both himself and Genesis greater commercial success. Collins’s total worldwide sales as a solo artist are 150 million.[7] Collins has won numerous music awards throughout his career, including seven Grammy Awards, six Brit Awards—winning Best British Male three times, three American Music Awards, an Academy Award, two Golden Globe Awards and a Disney Legend Award in 2002 for his solo work.[8][9][10] He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1999, was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Genesis in 2010.[11][12] Collins was listed at number 22 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Drummers of All Time”.[13]

Collins is one of only three recording artists (along with Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson) who have sold over 100 million albums worldwide both as solo artists and (separately) as principal members of a band.[14] During his most successful period as a solo artist between 1981 and 1990, Collins had three UK number-one singles and seven number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, as well as a U.S. number one with Genesis in 1986. When his work with Genesis, his work with other artists, as well as his solo career is totalled, Collins had more top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart during the 1980s than any other artist.[15] In 2008, Collins was ranked the 22nd most successful artist on the “Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists”.[16] Although one of the world’s best-selling recording artists and a highly respected drummer, Collins has garnered significant criticism over the years from music journalists and fellow artists. He announced his retirement in 2011 to focus on his family life,[17][18] though he continued to write songs and in 2013 he said he was considering a return to the music industry.[19]

Tu – You


Tu

Tu cerchi le rotte perdute
naufrago di una vita
senza più sogni :
calpestati e delusi
strappati come foglie

Tu che parli al tempo
e lo accusi dei tuoi inganni
lo distruggi e gli urli
tutte le tue ragioni

Tu che uccidi la vita
ed anneghi le voci
che ti dicono solo
– aspetta ancora –
perchè è l’attesa
la speranza
che non vuoi guardare

Tu che sfuggi
tutti i silenzi del cuore
perché da solo
non ti vuoi cercare
e credi sconfitta
l’essere lasciato

Tu che nulla cerchi
e vuoi solo urlare
tutta la rabbia
che scoppia dentro

Tu…Ascoltami ora
e raccogli tutte
le tue forze rimaste
– prendi la tua vita …
e non la gettare! –

You

You seek the lost routes
survivor of a life
no more dreams:
downtrodden and disappointed
like leaves torn

You speak to the time
and accuse him of your deceptions
Destroy him and the screams
all your reasons

You kill that life
and drown the voices
you just say
– Still waiting –
because it is the expectation
hope
do not want to look

You who escaped
all the silences of the heart
because only
you do not want to search
and believe defeat
being left

You who seek nothing
and you just want to cry
all the rage
bursting into

You Hear … hours
and collect all
your strength remained
– Take your life …
and not throw! –

Canto d’anima…
Lo senti?
Tu lo conosci

Pareti che si dilatano

io non fuggo
resto qui
…e non temo

Tu mi guardi …
io lo so,non sei solo
come non lo sono …
stata mai

A volte …
sono solo parole
mentre io vorrei
dire quell’oltre
che conosco
che vedo dentro di me

Non ho trovato ancora
chi sappia aprire gli occhi
chi raccolga le chiavi
della propria prigione
ma non temo …

E anche se il silenzio scivola…
tu sentimi…
io ci sono!

Song of soul …

I do not run away
rest here

You look at me …
I know, you’re not alone
nor are …
was never

Sometimes …
just words
while I would like
say that beyond
I know
I see in me

I have not found yet
those who canopen your your eyes
those who collect the keys
of its prison
but I am not afraid …

And even if the silence slips …

My “Best Of… Elvis Costello And The Attractions” Compilation



Elvis Costello, pseudonimo di Declan Patrick MacManus (Londra, 25 agosto 1954), è un cantautore, chitarrista e compositore britannico. Ha iniziato la sua carriera negli anni settanta come esponente della scena pub rock londinese, prima che il suo nome venisse associato ai movimenti punk e new wave della seconda metà degli anni ’70.[1]

Il suo acclamato album d’esordio My Aim Is True è stato registrato nel 1976. Poco tempo dopo ha formato il gruppo The Attractions, che lo ha accompagnato negli anni seguenti.

Nel corso della sua carriera ha vinto numerosi premi, incluso un Grammy Award ed ha ricevuto due nomination ai BRIT Award nella categoria “Best British Male”. Elvis Costello e The Attractions sono inclusi nella Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Nel 2004 Costello è stato inserito nella lista dei 100 artisti più grandi di tutti i tempi secondo Rolling Stone alla posizione #80.[2]

Tra le sue canzoni più celebri vi sono Alison, Everyday I Write the Book, I Wanna Be Loved, God’s Comic, Shipbuilding, I Almost Had a Weakness, The Man Out of Time, She e Almost Blue.

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

Elvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus, 25 August 1954) is an English singer-songwriter.[3] He began his career as part of London’s pub rock scene in the early 1970s and later became associated with the first wave of the British punk and new wave movement of the mid-to-late 1970s.[4][5] His critically acclaimed debut album, My Aim Is True, was recorded in 1977. Shortly after recording his first album he formed the Attractions as his backing band. His second album, This Year’s Model, was released in 1978, and was ranked number 11 by Rolling Stone on its list of the best albums from 1967–1987. His third album, Armed Forces, was released in 1979, and features his most successful single “Oliver’s Army”. His first three albums all appeared on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.[6]

Costello and the Attractions toured and recorded together for the better part of a decade, though differences between them caused a split by 1986. Much of Costello’s work since has been as a solo artist, though reunions with members of the Attractions have been credited to the group over the years. Steeped in wordplay, the vocabulary of Costello’s lyrics is broader than that of most popular songs. His music has drawn on many diverse genres; one critic described him as a “pop encyclopaedia”, able to “reinvent the past in his own image”.[7]

Costello has won multiple awards in his career, including a Grammy Award, and has twice been nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Male.[8] In 2003, Costello and the Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[9] In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Costello number 80 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[10]

La vita è viaggio – Life’s journey


La vita è viaggio
La vita è il più bel viaggio che ci possa capitare,
ma non basta guardare fuori dai finestrini,
noi non siamo semplice parte del paesaggio:
siamo parte attiva e il nostro credere o pensare
non dovrebbe rimanere in silenzio, così come
mai si deve tacere la nostra emozione.
La vita è ricchezza che ci rende migliori
e possiamo guardare alle opportunità
di un passato che insegna,di un futuro sconosciuto
ed un presente che è ora,in questo attimo,
ed è in esso che dobbiamo respirare ogni suo valore.
La vita è esperienza che resta indelebile dono
da proiettare nello spazio e nel tempo
che ci è concesso di attraversare
perchè solo così avrebbe senso
il nostro passaggio chiamato apprendimento.
La vita non è solitudine ma è l’armonia
dello scambio con condivisione e capacità
di portare agli altri quelle gocce d’oceano
che siamo, ogni goccia è capace di formare
il mare che tutto lambisce e ci rende amore.

Life’s journey

Life is the most beautiful journey that can happen,
but not enough to look out the windows,
we are not simply part of the landscape:
we are active and our believing or thinking
should not remain silent, as well as
must never be silenced our emotion.
Life is wealth that makes us better
and we can look at opportunities
of a past that sign, of an unknown future
and that it is now, at this moment,
and we breathe it in all its value.
Life is experience which remains indelible gift
to be projected in space and time
that we are allowed to cross
because only then would make sense
our passage called learning.
Life is not solitude but the harmony
with the exchange and sharing capabilities
to bring those to the other drops of ocean
who we are, every drop is capable of forming
the sea that washes us and makes us all love.

per augurarti un viaggio sereno

e colorano gli attimi
con colori d’arcobaleno

Respiri del tempo
che ha inciso il passo
nelle pieghe del cuore
e sei qui a farti domande
su un destino in attesa
di risposte nuove

Socchiudi gli occhi
e raccogli i sogni
che mai smettono

istanti preziosi
senza prezzo

Sorridi ancora

quel dono prezioso
che palpita eterno
perché la vita
mai smette di donarsi
e di donare istanti

Dominare la collera – Mastering anger


Dominare la collera

“Chi non sa dominare la propria collera ignora che quella forza
viene da molto più lontano e vuole introdursi in lui. Crede
persino, almeno per un momento, che quella corrente potente gli
trasmetta qualche cosa della propria potenza. Ma è un’illusione,
perché è la corrente stessa ad essere potente, e non chi viene
attraversato dalla corrente. Così, dopo il suo passaggio, il
povero infelice si ritrova talmente debole che in lui tutto
trema: mascelle, gambe, mani.
Il discepolo di una Scuola iniziatica ha compreso che dominando
la collera che sente salire dentro di sé e cercando di
trasformarla, acquisisce la vera potenza. Avviene la stessa cosa
con l’energia sessuale: dominandola, ci si rinforza
considerevolmente. Ecco perché gli Iniziati, che hanno imparato a
dominare l’istinto di aggressività, così come l’istinto sessuale,
possiedono tante energie per pensare e parlare, al fine di
illuminare gli esseri.”

Saggio è colui che sa dominare la collera

“Adirarsi è facile. Ma farlo con chi si deve, nella misura giusta, al momento opportuno, con lo scopo e nel modo convenienti, non è da tutti né facile. Ed è per questo che il farlo bene è cosa rara, degna di lode e bella”.
Il concetto cardinale illustrato più di 2500 anni fa dal saggio Aristotele, nell’Etica Nicomachea, era uno solo: la differenza tra il lasciarsi dominare dall’ira, in uno spontaneismo dilagante, oggi più di ieri, e l’essere protagonisti dell’ira. Nel senso di essere così capaci di mantenere saldo il controllo razionale di sé e della situazione, da riuscire a scegliere in modo mirato come e quando adirarsi, con chi e perché. In modo così elegante da arrivare ad un’estetica dell’ira. Con il risultato di essere capaci di finalizzare la collera, come un puntatore laser, così da renderla mirata, efficace e costruttiva – o distruttiva, se necessario – ma sempre sotto il lucido controllo di una visione lungimirante del suo significato. Una visione che aiuta a scegliere le argomentazioni più efficaci, le parole più appropriate, l’obiettivo più strategico e la modalità espressiva più rigorosa. In taluni momenti e contesti, questo tipo di collera può arrivare a elevarsi a indignazione sacra. In questo senso, perfino degna di lode. Perché è quella forma di sdegno profondo e risonante, che nasce dal riconoscere l’indegnità – in genere etica – di un comportamento e di una situazione che ci fa dire in fondo al cuore: “Fosse anche l’ultimo giorno della mia vita, su questo non posso tacere”. E che fa dire tutto quello che non va “apertis verbis”, con parole aperte e chiare, e con il coraggio che viene dal cuore. Perché questa indignazione non nasce dalla frustrazione di bisogni personali, come la collera di bassa lega, ma da un senso alto della vita e dei suoi valori. A costo anche di attirarsi antipatie, controaggressioni o ritorsioni di vario tipo e livello.
Sull’impulsività e sullo spontaneismo, sulle ondate di parole vomitate e laide, sotto l’influsso di una collera informe e bruta, su questo è bene riflettere. Viviamo in tempi che hanno osannato il diritto di lasciarsi andare alle emozioni e all’espressione di ogni moto dell’animo, con picchi di furore che trovano nel mezzo televisivo l’amplificazione più destruente. Assistiamo allora ad un’espressione di collera non filtrata dall’intelligenza e dall’educazione, né dal senso del tempo e della misura. La propria “verità”, fino all’insulto, viene lanciata in faccia, possibilmente in pubblico, in un gusto perverso – nel senso di distruttivo – dell’esibizione di quanto di più magmatico esista nell’animo e nel cervello umani. Di fatto diventando preda dell’emozione più distruttiva per sé e per gli altri.
L’uomo, e la donna, che sentano una profonda emozione di collera, sono come il cavaliere, o l’amazzone, sul cavallo di razza, ma ombroso. Come il cavaliere, che sa controllare e indirizzare l’energia e la forza del suo cavallo, può costruire un’unità di pensiero e di azione straordinarie, così l’uomo che sa indirizzare la sua collera può incidere sul contesto in cui vive, sul suo tempo, anche scardinando obsoleti equilibri e opportunismi, se la esplosiva energia vitale che si libera resta governata e indirizzata. Così fece Alessandro Magno con lo straordinario Bucefalo, montato a pelo e volto sgroppante verso il sole, sotto gli occhi terrorizzati del padre e dei cortigiani, che vedevano in quell’animale, che era bellezza e forza della natura allo stato puro, un rischio mortale per il giovane principe. Eppure Alessandro, con la forza lucida del suo corpo e il vigore intelligente della sua anima, fece sentire a Bucefalo che nessun’altro avrebbe saputo indirizzare la sua energia in modo migliore. E il cavallo divenne un tutt’uno con il suo cavaliere. Così racconta Plutarco. E così è l’uomo che sa vivere la sua collera con quell’intelligenza forte e lucida al punto da farne un tutt’uno con il suo io, in tempo di pace e di guerra. Nel senso di saper tenere calma e pronta la sua arma migliore. La soddisfazione per l’efficacia con cui riesce a portarla sull’obiettivo nei modi e con il tempismo appropriato di nuovo assomiglia alla squisita concentrazione di forza e leggerezza con cui il cavaliere porta il suo cavallo sull’ostacolo più alto, raccolto e potente nell’attacco, e poi disteso nell’arrivare oltre l’ostacolo, in perfetto e apparentemente rilassato controllo.
Questa capacità è naturale? No. E’ bene dirlo con chiarezza. Nasce da un esercizio continuo. Non ci si improvvisa cavalieri perfetti e potenti, come non ci si può improvvisare nell’uso lucido della propria collera, l’emozione che con più probabilità può disarcionare e fracassare l’uomo – o la donna – che credano di dominarla facilmente.
Fin da bambini dovremmo essere educati a saper governare quest’emozione antica e potente. Il che non significa reprimere, come tanti a torto pensano, ma indirizzare, canalizzare, rendere efficace. Un esercizio straordinario, utile sia nel migliorare la capacità di abitare anche i propri astratti o concreti furori, sia nel diventare sempre più incisivi. Ma richiede esercizio nell’arte di pensare con efficacia, di dialogare, di scegliere le parole che meglio vestano il proprio sentire.
Nella collera tutto va a mille: e il pensiero confuso porta fuori strada, e dalla parte del torto assoluto, l’uomo che si faccia dominare dal proprio istinto più cieco. Non a caso letto come vizio.
Ancora una volta, ecco un apprendimento al saper vivere che dovrebbe iniziare con il caffelatte, fin dai primi anni di vita, quando cresce in noi anche il senso etico della vita. E allora potremmo dire che esiste nell’adirarsi una dimensione etica: cui si può attingere solo se l’emozione abbia decantato tutte le proprie impurità istintuali e sia forza pura e passione limpida, al servizio di una causa che meriti la nostra energia e il nostro cuore.

RABBIA : la emozione a tinte fortidi Vittoria Nervi
Ero arrabbiato con il mio amico, gli dissi della mia rabbia, la rabbia sparì. Ero arrabbiato con il mio nemico Non gli dissi della mia rabbia, la mia rabbia aumentò. William Blake
La nostra salute ne risente e specialmente il nostro sistema immunitario che e’ la combat zone dei conflitti che si agitano dentro di noi.Somatizziamo.Io non mi arrabbio, non sono bravo ad esprimere l’ira. È uno dei problemi che ho.Interiorizzo, invece; mi allevo un tumore”.Woody Allen, “Manhattan”Spesso le persone non sono consapevoli dei conflitti perche’ sono nel profondo del nostro inconscio o ormai di vecchia data e ormai sepolti.Sembrano all’apparenza tranquille quindi non si rendono conto per esempio di essere arrabbiate. L’EMOZIONE ROSSA
La rabbia è una emozione antica, primitiva, presente sin dall’infanzia dell’uomo oltre che nel regno animale
E’ una reazione alla frustrazione .Ci arrabbiamo per vari motivi:
1 quando c’e’ un ostacolo tra noi e un possibile bisogno. 2 situazioni fisiche che possono minacciare l’incolumità di se stessi e dei propri beni3 disturbi o ostacoli alle proprie attività o che non ci permettono di concentrarci4 ingiustizie nei confronti nostri o altrui,accuse ingiustificate5 una persona che continua ad irritarci con il suo atteggiamento6 qualcuno che non ha mantenuto una promessa7 una minaccia di fallimento, sconfitta, perdita di sicurezza in sé, una paura della propria inadeguatezza nell’affrontare situazioni difficili.Spesso la collera improvvisa che ci porta a sfogare tutto il nostro rancore e la nostra rabbia, è il risultato del senso di impotenza nel realizzare i propri desideri o raggiungere gli obiettivi che ci siamo prefissi per incapacità decisionale. In questo caso riversiamo addosso agli altri la nostra rabbia,diamo loro la colpa o a volte al resto del mondo8 Paura della sconfitta e della perdita (gelosia)9 quando viene minacciata l’immagine di sé ,la propria autostima10 quando sentiamo che qualcosa o qualcuno a cui teniamo si oppone volutamente alla realizzazione di un nostro bisogno,Lo fa di proposito per ferirci . La nostra rabbia e’ maggiore contro le persone alle quali teniamo per due motivi :a)perché le nostre aspettative nei loro confronti sono molto elevate, e quindi inevitabilmente possiamo subire una delusioneb)perché sappiamo che siccome provano amore,affetto per noi non si vendicheranno Con gli estranei ci arrabbiamo molto di meno perché li frequentiamo poco e abbiamo quindi poche occasioni possibili di scontro.Con le persone che non sopportiamo o odiamo perché tendiamo a tenerle a distanza. Possiamo arrabbiarci contro un oggetto/persona che ci provoca la frustrazione o con un altro oggetto/persona sostitutivi perche’ non abbiamo il coraggio di affrontare, ma su un obiettivo meno temibile o più facilmente raggiungibile: il capro espiatorio. Oppure prendercela con noi stessi,autopunirci ,colpevolizzarci,criticarci perché non troviamo altro su cui orientare il proprio scontento. La rabbia si esprime anche in altri modi piu’ mascherati:con la calunnia, l’ironia, le insinuazioni e le critiche denigratorie per mettere in cattiva luce l’altra persona,svalutarla o farla sentire in colpa. La rabbia è quindi una maniera di far valere i propri diritti basilar .
Secondo Lowen quelli basilari sono:
il diritto di esistere il diritto di sicurezzail diritto all’autonomia e all’indipendenza il diritto di desiderare e soddisfare i propri bisogni. Chi non esprime in alcun modo i propri sentimenti di rabbia tende a viverli per un tempo più lungo. Spesso reprimiamo la rabbia perche’ esprimere questa emozione va contro le regole educative e sociali e perche’ abbiamo paura di perdere il controllo e provocare danni o la rottura irreparabile di una amicizia o di un rapporto.Non riuscendo ad esprimerla o far valere i nostri diritti in maniera assertiva ci sentiamo deboli e accumuliamo altra rabbia (escalation della rabbia)
La depressione è la rabbia senza entusiasmo
LE RABBIE
Vi sono vari tipi di rabbia:
1 la rabbia primaria In questo caso c’e’ stata una reale violazione dei propri diritti.Invece di reagire spesso in questo caso vengono adottate diverse strategie a seconda del tipo di persona e del suo vissuto- crollo emozionale, accompagnato da lacrime e senso di impotenza – minimizzazione-razionalizzazione- lamentoLa rabbia diventa disadattiva: quando e’ la risposta non a una violazione reale del presente ma ad una situazione che ci riporta indietro ad eventi simili del passato accompagnati da rabbia (es: mi arrabbio con te ORA….perche’ mi ricordi mia madre,mio padre quando mi diceva…) 2 la rabbia secondaria: la rabbia copre un’ altra emozione piu’ profonda per esempio una delusione o una preoccupazione(es qualcuno che aspettavamo non chiama..) oppure la tristezza( la rabbia cancella il dolore).E’ importante allora non fermarsi alla rabbia ma capire cosa si cela sotto questa emozione e rielaborarla con la consapevolezza o facendosi aiutare da un/una professionista .A volte ci si arrabbia con se stessi perche’ avremmo dovuto fare…..o non avremmo dovuto dire… o perche’ non accettiamo alcune parti di noi stessi.La depressione e’ spesso rabbia rivolta contro se stessi.3 la rabbia strumentale: in questo caso la rabbia diventa un mezzo per controllare gli altri e convincerli a fare cio’ che noi vogliamo.La reazione degli altri e’ di solito: amarezza, risentimento e distacco.4 la collera conseguente al sentirsi ignorati nei propri bisogni fondamentali.5 l’ira è la rabbia di essere stati invasi ed ha come obiettivo il ristabilireconfini adeguati.6 il litigio come discussione e’ una forma di rabbia che ha a che fare col non aver avuto adeguate informazioni; il suo scopo è di ottenere le informazioni che servono per capire il senso di determinate regole o modi di agire. 7 il risentimento è un tipo di rabbia legata all’essere fraintesi o malcompresi rispetto ad un sentimento importante per la persona. Il suo obiettivo è di far sentire l’altro responsabile di tale errata comprensione
A cosa serve la rabbia?
Diamo alla rabbia una connotazione negativa quindi da rimuovere,inutile. In realtà è un segnale che ci avverte che dobbiamo farci valere e ci dà la motivazione per farlo. L’espressione della rabbia è spesso più convincente di qualsiasi discorso e permette talvolta di ottenere quel che si chiede, di affrontare e risolvere situazioni di sopruso e di riaffermare se stessi e il proprio mondo dei valori. Ma per questo ci vuole la “giusta misura”, ,cosa che non c’e’ quando siamo alterati dalla rabbia. Spesso ci viene insegnato che bisogna controllarsi per educazione ed evitare di esprimere la rabbia.Questa e’ piu’ una regola sociale che un bisogno vero poiche’ Il trattenere, il reprimere situazioni di disagio può portare a sofferenze fisiche e mentali serie.La gestione della rabbia è un problema fondamentale nella nostra società. L’incapacità di auto-controllarsi porta a situazioni spesso drammatiche che tutti noi sentiamo durante i TG. o leggiamo sulle pagine di cronaca nera. E’ fondamentale, quindi che ognuno riconosca i segnali della propria rabbia e di quella altrui e si chieda da dove viene quella rabbia e come nella maniera più adeguata.
come fare per gestire la rabbia ?
Ecco alcuni suggerimenti.Quando qualcuno e’ arrabbiato con noi spesso re-agiamo istintivamente con la stessa emozione di rabbia il che’ non fa che innescare l’escalation e peggiorare la situazione.Riuscire a mantenere la calma non e’ facile quando ci sentiamo offesi,feriti e attaccati, Se riusciamo a mantenere la calma e capire quali possono essere le cause della rabbia dell’altro, saremo sulla buona strada.- LA RABBIA IMPEDISCE DI capire quale e’ il problema reale da risolvereSe siamo arrabbiati/e una buona tecnica e’ quella delTIME OUT : la tecnica dello spostamento utile per ridurla rimandare la discussione,cambiare argomento,andar via a far quattro passi o sdrammatizzare con delicatezzaSe e’ l’altra persona che e’ arrabbiata con noi cerchiamo di farle capire che la sua rabbia ci impedisce di capire o risolvere il problema .Diamole modo di ‘svuotare il cestino’ senza ribattere e cerchiamo di riportare la discussione al nocciolo del problema senza allargare il campo ( pero’ tu quella volta….ecco,sei sempre il solito..pero’ tu..)Spesso si alza la voce ma chi urla non e’ mai il piu’ forte. – SPAZIO RABBIA
questa tecnica e’ utile se ci troviamo a contatto con persone che spesso ci fanno arrabbiare.Programmiamo dei momenti in cui ciascuno e’ libero di sfogarsi.Sapremo che in quei momenti sono fatti per quello. 1. Stabiliamo quando e dove farlo senza altre persone che ci ascoltino e chiariamo con precisione su che cosa vogliamo discutere.Non coinvolgere parenti o amici.Peggiorano la situazione creando ulteriori malintesi.2. Stabiliamo la durata di questo spazio rabbia (in genere vanno bene 15/20 minuti)3. Lasciamo parlare l’altra persona senza interromperla4. A turno prendiamo la parola per un tempo stabilito come fanno nei dibattiti in tv (non più 5 minuti)5. Facciamo delle pause se l’altro ne ha bisogno 6 evitiamo l’ uso della violenza verbale e fisica facendo notare all’altra persona i limiti da non superare e difendendo i propri confini altrimenti ci allontaneremo (usciamo di casa,andiamo in un’altra stanza…..).7 stiamo nel qui e oraDurante la discussione non andate a rinvangare altri momenti simili per sostenere la vostra ragione. Non si rinfacciano i litigi passati. Tirare in ballo genitori e parenti (a meno che non siano motivo della discussione) sono proibiti quindi evitare il ‘sei come tua madre ecc’Questo allarga il fronte della discussione e allontana dalla soluzione dei problemi confondendo entrambi.Quindi lasciate perdere i ‘pero’ tu quella volta mi hai detto,hai fatto…’.Non confondete il problema con la persona8 win-windiscutere non e’ una gara per vincere e imporre il proprio punto di vista, né per dimostrare la propria superiorità o per dare una lezione all’altra persona.Evitiamo di svalutare l’altra persona o usare il sarcasmo perche’ porta solo a una reazione aggressiva.Cerchiamo un punto in comune e una soluzione creativa.Ognuno ha il suo punto di vista sulle cose.Rimanere ostinatamente rigidi sulle proprie posizioni senza mai cercare di mettersi nei panni dell’altra persona porta solo ad altre discussioniRinegoziare i compiti in casa,riguardo ai figli, i propri spazi per rilassarsi,per rimanere insieme ecc invece di far finta e serbare rancore o mettere in atto ripicche inutili.Si parla con sincerità senza usare il silenzio come un’arma o tenere il muso per farsi chiedere “cos’hai” o per far sentire in colpa l’altra persona9 le parole “sempre” e “mai” sono ASSOLUTAMENTE PROIBITE (invece di “non mi stai mai a sentire” dite ” ora non mi hai ascoltata” invece di “non mi fai mai un complimento ” dite “da qualche giorno non mi dici niente di gentile”

Bonno, l’inganno delle passioni
Scopi e trappole del buddhismo
di Cristiano Martorella

Il buddhismo è l’insegnamento esposto dal saggio della famiglia Shakya, Siddhartha (563-483 a.C.) detto il Buddha(1). La pratica e l’applicazione dell’insegnamento buddhista hanno lo scopo di liberare gli esseri umani dal giogo del dolore e della sofferenza, e quindi sviluppare pienamente le loro vite. Però lo stesso Buddha predisse che col tempo il suo insegnamento sarebbe stato corrotto, frainteso e degenerato(2). Questa profezia trova conferma in un’analisi puntuale delle pratiche del buddhismo nei paesi più lontani dall’originario insegnamento, ossia Cina e Giappone. Quest’ultimo paese conobbe anche un vivace scontro, spesso violento e feroce, fra i riformatori del buddhismo.Tuttavia è stato proprio il conflitto delle passioni a rendere il buddhismo giapponese(3) più attivo e interessante, nonostante il travisamento dell’insegnamento originario. Ciò spiega anche il successo in Europa e negli Stati Uniti delle sette giapponesi in tutte le loro forme (comunità di monaci, associazioni di laici, centri di studio accademici, etc.). Per comprendere adeguatamente il buddhismo giapponese è necessario penetrare criticamente nei princìpi che regolano le pratiche buddhiste.
Il termine giapponese bonno indica le passioni e le illusioni che dominano la nostra vita. La parola bonno traduce il vocabolo sanscrito klesa che significa appunto passione ingannevole, illusione che avvince l’animo umano. Il termine bonno è composto da bon (letto anche come wazurawashii significa complesso, problematico, difficoltoso) e no (nella forma verbale nayamu significa soffrire, tormentarsi, angosciarsi). Da un punto strettamente psicologico è chiaro il senso di questa teoria. Le passioni ed emozioni forti sono capaci di provocare una distorsione cognitiva che altera le percezioni della realtà. Viceversa le emozioni sono necessarie per creare le motivazioni, e dunque non possono essere eliminate completamente. Ciò che propone Buddha è una moderazione ed una consapevolezza che rende manifesto ogni aspetto del reale piuttosto che le false aspettative. La questione della distorsione cognitiva(4) è cruciale sia dal punto di vista psicologico, sia nel contesto della corretta pratica religiosa. Il buddhismo non nega la realtà del mondo, ma propone un migliore rapporto con essa, più autentico e verace. Il buddhismo è nichilismo nel senso che distrugge e annienta le illusioni, svelando la verità dell’essere.
La questione della distorsione cognitiva è ripresa anche in un altro insegnamento buddhista, presente in quasi tutte le sette giapponesi: i tre veleni (sandoku). I tre veleni che inquinano l’animo umano sono il desiderio (musabori), la collera (ikari) e l’ignoranza (oroka). L’affrancamento dai tre veleni avviene tramite le tre porte che conducono alla liberazione: non desiderio, non sé, non forma. Praticamente nell’esercizio di trasformare (hendoku iyaku) i tre veleni. Si trasforma così il desiderio in compassione, la collera in forza vitale, l’ignoranza in saggezza. Purtroppo i tre veleni sono capaci di infiltrarsi dappertutto e assumere aspetti insospettabili. La stessa pratica buddhista è contaminata dai tre veleni, come dimostrano i numerosi tradimenti e scismi, e Buddha spronava sempre gli adepti a non abbassare la guardia nei confronti delle insidie dei falsi maestri e delle dottrine nocive. Chi usa il buddhismo per i suoi meschini scopi personali reca grave danno a sé e agli altri. Lo scopo del buddhismo è la liberazione ed è esattamente il contrario dell’asservimento autoritario praticato in molte sette, scuole e associazioni che ne usano il nome.
Per questo motivo, molte tecniche mistiche sono nocive piuttosto che benefiche. L’adorazione di un oggetto di culto(5), il gohonzon, è una pratica contraria e opposta all’insegnamento di Siddhartha. Chi venera un oggetto di culto non ne è mai libero, ma ne è lo schiavo. Ci si aspetta dall’oggetto di culto miracoli o interventi divini, benefici e protezione. Però quello che si ottiene è l’alimentazione e la diffusione dei tre veleni (sandoku). La dinamica psicologica di questo processo è chiara ed evidente. Si crede ciecamente nei poteri miracolosi di un oggetto di culto venerato come un idolo. Ciò avviene per ignoranza, superstizione, stupidità (oroka). Si esprime il desiderio (musabori) e si prova rabbia e collera (ikari) perché non esaudito. L’oggetto di culto diventa così lo strumento di tortura che produce i tre veleni in questa sequenza: l’ignoranza, il desiderio e la collera. In conclusione si ottiene l’effetto contrario a quanto auspicato. Paradossalmente chi crede di praticare il buddhismo anche sbagliando finisce inevitabilmente per dimostrare la pericolosità delle passioni che ingannano la mente, ossia la correttezza dell’analisi del Buddha storico, Siddhartha.
Note
1. Il titolo Buddha significa “risvegliato” o “illuminato”, ossia colui che si è liberato dell’ignoranza e conosce la verità circa l’esistenza. Siddhartha (563-483 a.C.) nacque a Kapilavastu, località attualmente in Nepal, ma all’epoca regno indipendente di tipo repubblicano gentilizio. Secondo la cronologia più attendibile sarebbe nato nel 563 a.C. e morto nel 463 a.C. circa. Tuttavia altre datazioni spostano le coordinate temporali in maniera rilevante. Secondo la cronologia singalese sarebbero 663-543 a.C. circa, le date secondo la tradizione nell’India settentrionale sarebbero 463-383 a.C. circa.
2. In giapponese l’epoca in cui l’insegnamento di Buddha è divenuto incomprensibile è chiamato mappo. Attualmente l’epoca moderna in cui viviamo sarebbe nel periodo del mappo.
3. Le scuole giapponesi più importanti sono Hosso, Kegon, Tendai, Shingon, Rinzai, Soto, Obaku, Ritsu, Nichiren e Jodo.
4. Le analisi più interessanti sulla distorsione cognitiva sono state pubblicate da Jon Elster. Cfr. Elster, Jon, Più tristi ma più saggi? Razionalità ed emozioni, Anabasi, Milano, 1994. Si veda anche il volume Uva acerba. Cfr. Elster, Jon, Uva acerba. Versioni non ortodosse della razionalità, Feltrinelli, Milano, 1989.
5. L’oggetto di culto, in giapponese gohonzon, è presente in molte sette buddhiste. Nella setta della Terra Pura (Jodo) è rappresentato da statue di Amida, mentre per la setta di Nichiren è un mandala costituito da un rotolo con l’iscrizione dei nomi di divinità sovrannaturali e il titolo del Sutra del Loto. Al contrario, Bodhidharma proibiva l’uso di oggetti di culto, perciò le sette zen giapponesi ne sono privi.

Mastering anger
“Those who can not control his anger ignores that the force
comes from much further away and wants to break into it. He believes
even, at least for a moment, that’s the current powerful
convey something of its power. But it is an illusion,
because it is the current itself to be powerful, not who is
current passes through it. Thus, after its passage, the
poor wretch is so weak that he found all
tremble jaws, legs, hands.
The initiation of a school pupil has understood that dominating
the rage he feels rising within himself and trying to
turn, becomes the true power. It is the same
with sexual energy: domination, there is strengthened
considerably. That’s why the Initiates, who have learned to
dominate the instinct of aggression, as well as the sexual instinct,
have so much energy to think and talk in order to
light beings. ”

Wise is he who can control the anger
Prof. Alessandra Graziottin
Director of the Center of Gynecology and Medical Sexology H. San Raffaele Resnati, Milan
“Angry is easy. But who should do it in the right size, when appropriate, with the purpose and as convenient, not everyone is not easy. And that is why the do it right is rare, praiseworthy and beautiful. ”
The cardinal concept shows more than 2500 years ago by the sage Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, there was only one: the difference between letting yourself be overcome by anger, in a rampant spontaneity, today more than ever, and being the protagonists of anger. So as to be able to maintain balance the rational control of self and situation to be able to choose how and when to target angry, with whom and why.In such an elegant way to arrive at an aesthetic of anger. With the result of being able to finalize the rage, like a laser pointer, so as to make targeted, effective and constructive – destructive or, if necessary – but always under the control of a polished farsighted vision of its meaning. A vision that will help you choose the most effective arguments, the more appropriate words, the goal more strategic and more rigorous way of expression. In certain moments and contexts, this kind of anger can get to rise in indignation sacred. In this sense, even praiseworthy. Why is that form of anger and deep resonance that comes from recognizing the indignity – in general ethics – a behavior or a situation that makes us say in his heart “was also the last day of my life, on this can not be silent. ” And that is to say everything that is wrong “in words”, words with open and clear, and the courage that comes from the heart. Why the anger is born from the frustration of personal needs, such as anger, low alloy, but by a high sense of life and its values. At the risk of incurring even dislikes, controaggressioni or retaliation of various kinds and levels.
Sull’impulsività on spontaneity and, on the waves of vomit and ugly words, under the influence of a formless anger and brute is good to reflect on this. We live in times that have celebrated the right to indulge in emotion and expression of each movement of the soul, with peaks of rage that found in television amplification more destructive.Then we witness an expression of anger is not filtered by the intelligence and education, nor the sense of time and measurement. Its “truth”, to insult, is thrown in your face, preferably in public, in a perverse taste – in the sense of destructive – the exhibition of the most chaotic and there is soul in the human brain. In fact most destructive emotion becoming prey for themselves and others.
The man and the woman, who feel a deep emotion of anger, they are like the knight, ol’amazzone on the horse race, but shady. Like the knight, who knows how to control and direct the energy and the strength of his horse, can build a unit of thought and action, amazing, so the man who knows how to direct its anger can affect the context in which he lives, on their time, even breaking up obsolete balances and relevant, whether the explosive life energy that is released is governed and directed. So did Alexander the Great to the extraordinary Bucephalus, mounted bareback and sgroppante face towards the sun, under the terrified eyes of his father and his courtiers, who saw the creature, that was the beauty and power of nature at its best, a life-threatening risk for the young prince. Yet Alexander, with the strength of its shiny body and intelligent force of his soul, he felt that nobody would know Bucephalus to direct its energy in a better way. And the horse became one with his rider. So says Plutarch. And so is the man who knows how to live his anger with loud and clear that intelligence to the extent that it becomes one with his ego, in peacetime and war. In the sense of being able to keep calm and ready for his best weapon. The satisfaction with the effectiveness with which it manages to bring the lens in the manner and with the appropriate timing of new looks to the exquisite concentration of power and ease with which the rider takes his horse over the obstacle highest in the harvesting and powerful ‘ attack, and then spread over the obstacle in arriving, apparently relaxed and in perfect control.
This ability is natural? No. ‘should be said clearly. It comes from constant practice.There is sudden and powerful knights perfect as you can not improvise in the use of polished his anger, the emotion that most likely can throw and smash the man – or woman – who think they control it easily.
Since children should be educated to know how to govern this emotion ancient and powerful. This does not mean suppress, as many wrongly think, but direct, channel, to be effective. An exercise extraordinary, useful in improving the ability to also live their fury abstract or concrete, is becoming increasingly effective. But the art takes practice to think effectively, to communicate, to choose appropriate words to adorn his own feelings.
In anger all goes to a thousand: and the muddled thinking is misleading and absolutely in the wrong, the man who is made to dominate by their instincts more blind. Not by chance read as vice.
Again, here is a learning experience that should be able to start with the coffee, from the earliest years of life, it grows in us the sense of ethical life. And then we could say that there is an ethical dimension nell’adirarsi: that can be drawn only if the emotion has praised all its impurities and instinctual power is pure passion and clear in the service of a cause that deserves our energy and our heart.

ANGER: The emotion strong colors di Vittoria Nervi
I was angry with my friend, I told him of my anger, the anger was gone. I was angry with my foe did not tell him of my anger, my anger grew. William Blake
Our health is affected and especially our immune system and ‘the combat zones of conflict that move within noi.Somatizziamo.Io not get angry, I’m not good at expressing anger. It is one of the problems ho.Interiorizzo, however, brought me up a tumor. “Woody Allen’s” Manhattan “Often people are not aware of the conflicts’ cause I’m deep in our unconscious or long-standing and now all sepolti.Sembrano’seemingly quiet so they do not realize, for example, to be angry. THE THRILL RED
Anger is an emotion ancient, primitive, this man since childhood as well as in the animal kingdom
It ‘a reaction to frustration. We get angry for several reasons:
1 when there is’ an obstacle between us and a possible need. Two physical situations that can threaten the safety of themselves and their beni3 disturbances or obstacles to their activities or do not allow us to concentrarci4 injustices against us or others, accusations ingiustificate5 a person who continues to annoy us with his atteggiamento6 someone did not maintain a promessa7 a threat of failure, defeat, loss of self-confidence, a fear of their own inadequacy in dealing with situations difficili.Spesso sudden anger that leads us to give vent to all our grievances and our anger is the result the sense of helplessness in achieving their desires or achieve the goals we have set ourselves for inability to make decisions. In this case, the other poured upon our anger, guilt or sometimes we give them the rest of the mondo8 Fear of defeat and loss (Jealousy) 9 when it is threatened self-image, their autostima10 when we feel that something or someone we care about is deliberately opposed to the realization of our need, He does it on purpose to hurt us. Our anger and ‘higher against the persons to whom we hold for two reasons: a) because our expectations are very high for them, and then we will inevitably suffer a delusioneb) because we feel that as love, affection for us not to retaliate With strangers we get angry a lot less because they did not spend much and have so few opportunities possible scontro.Con people who do not endure or hate because we tend to keep them away.We can get angry against an object or person that causes us frustration or with another object / person substitutes’ cause we do not have the courage to face, but on a goal less fearful or more easily accessible: the scapegoat. Or take ourselves, autopunirci, blame, criticize us because we do not find much on which to orient their discontent. Anger is expressed in other ways more ‘masked: the slander, irony, innuendo and smear critics to put the other person look bad, devalue or make her feel guilty. Anger is thus a way of asserting their basic right.
According to Lowen basic ones are:
the right to exist the right to sicurezzail right to autonomy and independence and want the right to meet their own needs. Who does not in any way express his feelings of anger tends to experience them for a longer time. Often repress anger because ‘to express this emotion goes against the rules and social and educational’ cause we are afraid to lose control and cause irreparable damage or breakdown of a friendship or a rapporto.Non able to express or enforce our rights assertive in a way we feel weak and accumulate more anger (anger escalation)
Depression is anger without enthusiasm
THE ANGER
There are various types of anger:
A primary rabies in this case there ‘was a real violation of their diritti.Invece to react in this case are often adopted different strategies depending on the type of person and experiences-emotional collapse, accompanied by tears and a sense of Impotence – minimization, rationalization-lamentoLa anger becomes maladaptive when and ‘the answer is not a real violation of this but to a situation that brings us back to similar events of the past accompanied by anger (eg, I get angry with you now. … because ‘I remember my mother, my father when he told me …) 2 secondary anger: anger covers an’ other emotions’ such as a deep disappointment or concern (eg someone who does not call waiting ..) or sadness (the anger clears the pain). It ‘important, then look beneath the anger but to understand what lies beneath this emotion and rework it with the knowledge or with assistance from a / a professional. Sometimes we get angry with yourself’ cause we had to do … .. or not … or why we should say ‘we do not accept some parts of us stessi.La depression’ is often anger turned against rabies if stessi.3 instrumental in this case, anger becomes a means to control others and convince them to do this ‘that we vogliamo.La reaction of others and’ the usual bitterness, resentment and anger caused by the distacco.4 feel ignored in their needs fondamentali.5 anger is the anger of having been invaded and its aim is theristabilireconfini adeguati.6 the discussion and argument as’ a form of anger that has to do with not having adequate information, its purpose is to get the information you need to understand the meaning of certain rules or ways of acting. 7, the resentment is a type of anger related to being misunderstood or badly understood important than a feeling for the person. Its goal is to make you feel more responsible for this misunderstanding
What is anger?
We give a negative connotation to anger and then to remove and useless. It’s actually a sign that warns us that we must assert ourselves and gives us the motivation to do so. The expression of anger is often more convincing than any words and can sometimes get what you ask, to address and resolve situations of abuse and to reassert themselves and their world of values. But for this we need the “right size”, which is not there ‘when we are affected by anger. Often we are taught that education should check for and avoid expressing rabbia.Questa and ‘more’ a social rule that a real need since ‘detention, suppressing the uncomfortable situations can lead to mental and physical sufferings serie.La management Anger is a fundamental problem in our society. The inability of self-control often leads to dramatic situations that we all feel during the TG. or read on the pages of crime. E ‘therefore important that everyone recognize the signs of his anger and that of others and ask where it comes from and how that anger is most appropriate.
how to manage anger?
Here are some suggerimenti.Quando someone ‘angry with us often re-act instinctively with the same emotion of anger which’ does nothing but worsen the trigger and escalate situazione.Riuscire to remain calm and not ‘easy when we feel offended , attacked and wounded, If we can keep calm and understand what may be the causes of the anger of others, we are on track .- PREVENT RABIES to understand what is’ the real problem by risolvereSe we are angry / and a good technique and ‘that delTIME OUT: useful technique to reduce the displacement postpone the debate, change the subject, go away to make a walk or play down with delicatezzaSe and’ the other person who is’ angry with us trying to make them understand that his angerprevents us from understanding or solving the problem. let us give way to ‘empty the trash’ without reply and try to bring the discussion to the core of the problem without enlarging the field (but ‘you this time. … here, you’re still the same though .. ‘you ..) often raises his voice but not shouting’ ever more ‘strong. – AREA RAGE

Bonno, deception of the passions
Aims and traps of Buddhism
Cristiano MartorellaBuddhism is the teaching expounded by the sage of the Shakya family, Siddhartha (563-483 BC) known as the Buddha (1). The practice and application of Buddhist teaching are designed to liberate human beings from the yoke of pain and suffering, and then develop their full lives. But the Buddha himself predicted that in time his teaching would have been corrupted, misunderstood and degenerate (2). This prophecy is confirmed by a detailed analysis of the practices of Buddhism in countries further from the original teaching, namely China and Japan.The latter country also enjoyed a lively battle, fierce and often violent, between buddhismo.Tuttavia reformers was precisely the conflict of passions to make Japanese Buddhism (3) more active and interesting, despite the misrepresentation of the original teaching. This also explains the success in Europe and the United States of the seven Japanese in all their forms (community of monks, lay associations, academic centers of learning, etc.).. To fully understand Japanese Buddhism is critically necessary to penetrate in the principles that govern the Buddhist practices.
The Japanese word Bonno indicates the passions and illusions that dominate our lives. Bonno The word translates the Sanskrit word which means “passion klesa misleading illusion that captivates the human soul. The term Bonn is composed of bon (bed also means wazurawashii complex, difficult, difficult) and not (in verbal form nayamu means suffering, torment, anguish). From a strictly psychological explain the reason of this theory. The passions and emotions are capable of causing a cognitive distortion that alters the perceptions of reality. In contrast, the emotions are necessary to establish the motives, and therefore can not be eliminated completely. This suggests that the Buddha is a restraint and an awareness that demonstrates every aspect of the real rather than false expectations. The issue of cognitive distortion (4) is crucial both from the psychological point of view, both in the context of proper religious practice. Buddhism does not deny the reality of the world, but offers a better relationship with it, most authentic and true. Buddhism is nihilism in the sense that it destroys and destroys the illusion, revealing the truth of being.
The issue of cognitive distortions and resumed in another Buddhist teaching, present in almost all the sects in Japan: the three poisons (sandoku). The three poisons that pollute the human soul is the desire (musabori), anger (Ikari) and ignorance (Orok).The freeing of the three poisons with the three doors leading to the release, not desire, not themselves, not form. The exercise of virtually transform (hendoku iyaku) the three poisons. It becomes so desire into compassion and anger in life force, ignorance into wisdom. Unfortunately, the three poisons are able to penetrate everywhere and assume unexpected dimensions. The Buddhist practice itself is contaminated by the three poisons, as evidenced by the numerous schisms and betrayals, and Buddha urged their followers to always remain vigilant against the dangers of false teachers and doctrines harmful. Who is using Buddhism for his petty personal use causes serious harm to himself and others. The aim of Buddhism is liberation and that is exactly the opposite dell’asservimento authoritarian practiced in many sects, schools and associations that use the name.
For this reason, many mystical techniques are detrimental rather than beneficial. The worship of a cult (5), the Gohonzon, it is a practice that is contrary and opposed to the teachings of Siddhartha. Who worships an object of worship is not never free, but it is the slave. We expect miracles from the object of worship or divine intervention, benefits and protection. But what you get is the power and the spread of the three poisons (sandoku). The psychological dynamic of this process is clear and obvious.He blindly believes in the miraculous powers of a venerated object of worship as an idol. This is done out of ignorance, superstition, stupidity (Orok). It expresses the desire (musabori) and try fury and anger (Ikari), why not fulfilled. The object of worship becomes the instrument of torture that produces this sequence in the three poisons: ignorance, desire and anger. Finally you get the opposite effect to what is desired.Paradoxically, those who believe they practice Buddhism also inevitably prove wrong the dangers of the passions that deceive the mind, namely the correctness of the historical Buddha, Siddhartha.
Notes
1. The title Buddha means “awakened” or “enlightened”, ie one who has freed himself of ignorance and know the truth about existence. Siddhartha (563-483 BC) was born in Kapilavastu locations currently in Nepal, but then independent kingdom of noble republican type. According to the most reliable history was born in 563 BC and died in 463 BC about. However, other dates moving time coordinates in a significant way.According to the Sri Lankan history would be 663-543 BC about the dates according to the tradition in northern India would be 463-383 BC about.
2. In Japanese, the time when the teachings of Buddha has become incomprehensible is called map. Currently, the modern age in which we live would be the time of the map.
3. The Japanese schools are more important Hoss, Kegon, Tendai, Shingon, Rinzai, Soto, Obaku, Ritsu, Jodo and Nichiren.
4. The most interesting analysis on the cognitive distortions have been published by Jon Elster. See Elster, Jon, sadder but wiser? Rationality and emotions, Anabasis, Milan, 1994. See also the volume of sour grapes. See Elster, Jon, sour grapes.Unorthodox versions of rationality, Feltrinelli, Milano, 1989.
5. The object of worship, the Gohonzon in Japanese, is present in many Buddhist sects. In the Pure Land sect (Jodo) is represented by statues of Amida, while the Nichiren sect is a mandala made up of a scroll with the inscription of the names of supernatural deity and the title of the Lotus Sutra. On the contrary, Bodhidharma forbade the use of religious objects, so the Japanese Zen sect do not.

Sorridi – Smile


Sorridi
Sorridi alla noia
sorridi allo scorrere del tempo
sorridi alle incertezze
sorridi alle attese
sorridi alle paure
sorridi al cuore confuso
sorridi a chi ha il muso
sorridi a quello che non comprendi
sorridi a quello che deve accadere
sorridi a quel che è accaduto
sorridi tra un istante
sorridi adesso
sorridi sempre
…e se non riesci più a tenere le labbra distese
sorridi con il cuore.

Smile

Smile to boredom
smile at the passing of time
smile to the uncertainties
smile to the expectations
smile fears
confused smile to the heart
smile to those who have the nose
smile at what you do not understand
smile at what must happen
smile at what happened
smile in a moment
smile now
always smile
… And if you just can not keep her lips spread
smile with your heart.

Al pittore – To the painter


Al pittore

Sono densi colori
di vita e respiro
del soffio dell’anima
i tuoi aquiloni

Sono pioggia di Marzo
che leggera sfiora
un sorriso appena nato
e regala ad un fiore
proteso nell’immenso
un nuovo colore

Sono tavolozze vive
che respirano piano
per non fare rumore
tra ali di gabbiani
ed odore del mare

Eppure…
Quante girandole
quanta fatica
per i respiri del vento
per quell’attesa
di una parola
che non arriva

Son ciechi gli occhi
di chi non vede
tra le pieghe
dell’anima accesa
tutto il tuo valore

28.11.2003 Poetyca

To the painter

Colors are dense
Living and breathing
the breath of the soul
your kites

Have rain in March
that lightly touches
a smile newborn
and gives a flower
outstretched immense
a new color

Palettes are alive
breathing plane
not to make noise
between wings of seagulls
and smell of the sea

However …
How many windmills
how hard
for the breaths of wind
that wait for
one word
that never comes

Eyes are blind
who does not see
the folds
burning soul
your entire value

Cream Live in Royal Albert Hall


I Cream sono stati una band rock britannica attiva tra il 1966 e il 1968, che, rivisitando vecchi schemi del blues, riuscì ad innovare il rock in generale,[3] influenzando molti artisti, tra i quali Jimi Hendrix,[3] Queen[4], Black Sabbath[5] e Van Halen.[6] Formati dal chitarrista Eric Clapton, dal bassista Jack Bruce e dal batterista Ginger Baker, furono il primo power trio ad aver avuto notevole successo[1][7][8] e uno dei primi supergruppi della storia.[1][3][7][8]

Nei soli tre anni di attività il gruppo riuscì a pubblicare tre album[9] e a vendere 15 milioni di dischi.[3][8] Dopo lo scioglimento del gruppo, i tre componenti ebbero delle carriere molto diverse tra loro: Clapton divenne uno dei musicisti più conosciuti del mondo, grazie a canzoni come Layla e Cocaine, Bruce collaborò con artisti jazz, mentre Baker si dedicò alla world music.[3] Tuttavia, la band si riunì in due occasioni: nel 1993, per suonare alla cerimonia della loro introduzione nel Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, e nel 2005, esibendosi in quattro concerti al Royal Albert Hall di Londra e in due al Madison Square Garden di New York.[8]

In una classifica stilata nel 2003 dalla rivista Rolling Stone, sono tra i 100 migliori artisti di sempre, figurando al 67º posto.[10] L’emittente VH1 ha classificato il gruppo al sedicesimo posto tra i 100 migliori artisti hard rock di sempre.

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

Cream were a 1960s British rock supergroup power trio consisting of bassist/singer Jack Bruce, drummer Ginger Baker, and guitarist/singer Eric Clapton. Their unique sound was characterised by a hybrid of blues rock, hard rock and psychedelic rock,[1] combining psychedelia themes, Clapton’s blues guitar playing, Bruce’s powerful, versatile vocals and prominent bass playing, Baker’s pulsating, jazz-influenced drumming and Pete Brown’s poetry-inspired lyrics. The group’s third album, Wheels of Fire, was the world’s first platinum-selling double album.[2][3] The band is widely regarded as being the world’s first successful supergroup.[4][5][6][7] In their career, they sold over 15 million albums worldwide.[8] Their music included songs based on traditional blues such as “Crossroads” and “Spoonful”, and modern blues such as “Born Under a Bad Sign”, as well as more eccentric songs such as “Strange Brew”, “Tales of Brave Ulysses” and “Toad”.

The band’s biggest hits are “I Feel Free” (UK, number 11),[3] “Sunshine of Your Love” (US, number 5),[9] “White Room” (US, number 6),[9] “Crossroads” (US, number 28),[9] and “Badge” (UK, number 18).[10] The band made a significant impact on the popular music of the time, and, along with Jimi Hendrix, and Terry Kath of Chicago, popularised the use of the wah-wah pedal. They provided a heavy yet technically proficient musical theme that foreshadowed and influenced the emergence of British bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Jeff Beck Group and Black Sabbath in the late 1960s and the early 1970s. The band’s live performances influenced progressive rock acts such as Rush.[11] The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.[12] They were included in both Rolling Stone and VH1’s lists of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time,” at number 67 and 61 respectively.[13][14] They were also ranked number 16 on VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock”

Neil Young – The Needle & The Damage Done


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyRwde95sfE&list=PL76C4C09DDAFF76C8]

Neil Percival Young (Toronto, 12 novembre 1945) è un cantautore e chitarrista canadese.

Dopo aver debuttato giovanissimo con la storica formazione dei Buffalo Springfield e aver raggiunto il successo nel supergruppo Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young,[1] Neil si è imposto come uno dei più carismatici e influenti cantautori degli anni settanta,[2] contribuendo a ridefinire la figura del songwriter con album come After the Gold Rush e il vendutissimo Harvest.[3]

Artista solitario e tormentato,[3] capace di passare con disinvoltura dalla quiete della ballata acustica alla brutalità della cavalcata rock, per l’approccio spesso volutamente “grezzo” che contraddistingue tanto i suoi dischi quanto i suoi concerti è stato considerato da alcuni un precursore del punk,[3] mentre la ruvida passione delle sue performance ha spinto tanto la critica quanto gli appassionati e gli stessi musicisti ad acclamarlo negli anni novanta padrino del grunge.[3][4] È stato inoltre un personaggio determinante per l’evoluzione di generi come l’alternative country[5] e l’alternative rock in generale.[6]

Tratti inconfondibili del suo stile sono la voce acuta e nasale, la chitarra “sporca” e cacofonica, i testi introspettivi e malinconici (specie nella cosiddetta Trilogia del dolore,[7] culminata nell’album Tonight’s the Night,[8] da molti ritenuto il primo concept album della storia del rock a misurarsi con temi quali il dolore e la perdita) nonché l’immancabile camicia di flanella, divenuta negli anni un autentico status symbol alternativo.

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

Neil Percival Young, OC OM[4][5] (born November 12, 1945) is a Canadian singer-songwriter and musician. He began performing in a group covering Shadowsinstrumentals in Canada in 1960, before moving to California in 1966, where he co-founded the band Buffalo Springfield together with Stephen Stills and Richie Furay, and later joined Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1969. He released his first album in 1968 and has since forged a successful and acclaimed solo career, spanning over 45 years and 35 studio albums, with a continuous and uncompromising exploration of musical styles.[6] The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website describes Young as “one of rock and roll’s greatest songwriters and performers”.[7] He was inducted into the Hall of Fame twice, first as a solo artist in 1995, and second as a member of Buffalo Springfield in 1997.[8]

Young’s music is characterized by his distinctive guitar work, deeply personal lyrics[9][10][11] and characteristic alto or high tenor singing voice.[12][13] Although he accompanies himself on several different instruments, including piano and harmonica, his idiosyncratic electric and clawhammer acoustic guitar playing are the defining characteristics of a varyingly ragged and melodic sound.

While Young has experimented with differing music styles throughout a varied career, including swing and electronic music, most of his best known work is either acousticfolk-rock and country rock or electric, amplified hard rock (most often in collaboration with the band Crazy Horse). Musical styles such as alternative rock and grunge also adopted elements from Young. His influence has caused some to dub him the “Godfather of Grunge“.[14]

Young has directed (or co-directed) a number of films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979),Human Highway (1982), Greendale (2003), and CSNY/Déjà Vu (2008). He has also contributed to the soundtracks of films including Philadelphia (1993) and Dead Man(1995).

Young is an environmentalist[15] and outspoken advocate for the welfare of small farmers, having co-founded in 1985 the benefit concert Farm Aid. He is currently working on a documentary about electric car technology, tentatively titled LincVolt. The project involves his 1959 Lincoln Continental converted to hybrid technology as an environmentalist statement.[16][17] In 1986, Young helped found The Bridge School,[18] an educational organization for children with severe verbal and physical disabilities, and its annual supporting Bridge School Benefit concerts, together with his ex-wife Pegi Young (née Morton). Young has three children: sons Zeke (born during his relationship with actress Carrie Snodgress) and Ben, who were diagnosed with cerebral palsy, and daughter Amber Jean who, like Young, has epilepsy. Young lives on his ranch in La Honda, California.[19] Although he has lived in northern California since the 1970s and sings as frequently about U.S. themes and subjects as he does about his native country, he has retained his Canadian citizenship.[20] On July 14, 2006, Young was awarded the Order of Manitoba,[5] and on December 30, 2009, was made an Officer of the Order of Canada.[4]

Stella smarrita – Lost star


Stella smarrita

Cancelli con un gesto
tutti i frammenti
sospesi nel tempo
che tolgono fiato
e rubano colori
a tutto l’incanto
e cerchi confusa
senza comprendere
dove andare
Vorresti delle parole
tutto il senso
e non ti accorgi
nella polvere smarrita
che lasci la pace
per un percorso in salita
che procurerà ferite
che non saprai cancellare

02.02.2003 Poetyca

Lost star

Gates with a wave
all fragments
The Frighteners
that remove breath
and steal colors
all the enchanting
and looking confused
without understanding
where to go
Would the words
all the way
and you do not realize
Lost in the dust
leaving peace
for ascent
wounds that will bring
clear that you will not know

Scaglie d’emozione – Scales of emotion


ak3_1024

Scaglie d’emozione

Anche a te
sia dolce il sognare
l’estendere pensieri
in luoghi
non ancora nati
 
Sia presente
la delicata brezza
che disegna immagini
dietro le ciglia
 
Passi di danza
tra un palpito
che silenzioso sovrasta
nel silenzio delle notti
 
Esanime resta
l’incanto di colori
se non soffi
sulle fantasie vive
 
Lontano s’effonde
il suono del cuore
se in ascolto
ti poni ancora
 
Nessuno rimane
mai solo
se raccoglie
scaglie d’emozione

 08.06.2003 Poetyca

Scales of emotion

Same to you
sweet is the dream
extend the thoughts
in places
the unborn

Both present
the gentle breeze
that draws images
behind the lashes

Dance Steps
between one heartbeat
which dominates noise
in the silence of nights

Lifeless remains
the magic of colors
if it does not blow
fantasies about the lives

Faraway poured out
the sound of the heart
if listening
you ask again

Nobody stays
never alone
if it collects
scales of emotion

In viaggio insieme – Traveling Together …


In viaggio…Insieme

E non sono solo
passi stanchi nella notte
con le tasche piene di nebbia
E non è solo fumo alle spalle
da lasciar correre con la mani vuote
tra le stelle di cartone
appese ad un soffitto di ricordi
E’ anche sogno che rincorre
come capelli sciolti nel vento
e fiore che si dona nel deserto
E’ anche suono di note nuove
che disegnano la mente di nostalgie
soffiate piano tra le pieghe di parole
E sei tu amico mio che cerchi occhi
e respiri piano la tua fantasia
per farle prender vita
nei silenzi allungati di una sera
E sono io – antico fascino –
che accarezza nel silenzio
tra l’incanto di parole
e viaggi lontano da tristezze amare
E continueremo sempre a sognare
tra un volo di gabbiani e il canto
di quell’ airone che riprende
il suo infinito viaggio verso il sole

Traveling Together …

And they are only
tired footsteps in the night
with pockets full of fog
And it’s not just smoke behind
to let go with empty hands
between the cardboard stars
hanging from a ceiling of memories
It is also chasing dream
as loose hair in the wind
and who gives himself in the desert flower
It also notes new sound
that draw the mind of nostalgia
blown plan in the folds of words
And you are my friend you are looking eyes
breaths and plan your fantasy
to give life to it
elongated in the silences of night
And I have – charm –
That Shakes the silence
between the magic of words
travel far from love and sadness
And we will always continue to dream
between flights of gulls and song
of that ‘heron that takes
its endless journey towards the sun

Il raccoglitore di stelle – The collector of stars


Il raccoglitore di stelle

Occhi che specchiano la luna
e tolgono alla notte la veste
Occhi che sanno attraversare barriere
e percorrono la notte
senza paura alcuna
Occhi che conoscono il pianto
e che con le perle sanno anche sorridere
Occhi mai stanchi
di attraversare tutti i confini
…e poi
nel silenzio di un istante
raccoglieranno tutte le stelle
per farne alla donna amata dono

The collector of stars

Eyes that reflected the moon
at night and removed her dress
Eyes that know how to cross barriers
and walk the night
Without any fear
Eyes that know the tears
and that the pearls are even smile
Never tired eyes
to cross all borders
… and then
in a moment of silence
Collect all the stars
to make a gift to his beloved

Lou Reed Greatest Hits – Best songs of Lou Reed


Video https://youtu.be/QYEC4TZsy-Y
Lewis Allan Reed (New York, 2 marzo 1942Long Island, 27 ottobre 2013) è stato un cantautore, chitarrista e poeta statunitense.
Cantore al contempo crudo e ironico dei bassifondi metropolitani, dell’ambiguità umana, dei torbidi abissi della droga e della deviazione sessuale, ma anche della complessità delle relazioni di coppia e dello spleen esistenziale, Lou ha finito con l’incarnare lo stereotipo dell’Angelo del male, immagine con cui ha riempito i media per oltre tre decenni divenendo una delle figure più influenti della musica e del costume contemporanei.[1][4]
Con i Velvet Underground, fondati nella sua New York a metà anni sessanta insieme al musicista d’avanguardia John Cale, pur non riscuotendo alcun successo commerciale ha rivoluzionato per sempre i dettami della musica rock, gettando le basi per quell’estetica nichilista che anni dopo sarebbe stata ribattezzata Punk.[5][6]Dopo lo scioglimento del gruppo ha avviato una lunga e proficua carriera solista, che può vantare album storici come Transformer (prodotto da David Bowie), il concept album Berlin, il live Rock N Roll Animal e l’album-provocazione Metal Machine Music.[7]
Celebri e imitatissimi il suo look divenuto un marchio di fabbrica (giacca di pelle nera, jeans e Ray-Ban scuri), la sua voce apatica e apparentemente monocorde, il suo stile chitarristico abrasivo e dissonante.[8]

Lewis AllanLouReed (March 2, 1942 – October 27, 2013) was an American musician, singer, and songwriter.[1] After serving as guitarist, vocalist, and principal songwriter of the Velvet Underground, his solo career spanned several decades.
The Velvet Underground was a commercial failure in the late 1960s, but the group gained a considerable cult following in the years since its demise and has gone on to become one of the most widely cited and influential bands of the era.[2] Brian Eno famously stated that, while the Velvet Underground’s debut album only sold 30,000 copies, “everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band.”[3]
After his departure from the group, Reed began a solo career in 1972. He had a hit the following year with “Walk on the Wild Side“, but this level of mainstream commercial success was not to be repeated.[4] Reed was known for his distinctive deadpan voice, poetic lyrics and for pioneering and coining the term ostrich guitartuning.[5]
In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time included two albums by Reed as a solo artist, Transformer and Berlin.[6]

Pastelli – Pastels


Pastelli

Dobbiamo sentirci liberi di colorare la nostra vita
con dei pastelli, usando la nostra attitudine,
senza temere di uscire dai margini del disegno o del foglio.
Ci sono momenti in cui si percepisce oltre le parole,
 come si possa essere ” sincroni” con qualcuno,
come se il tempo e lo spazio perdessero confine,
allora con quei pastelli possiamo colorare ogni respiro,
 con la certezza che non siamo interpretati ma compresi
 e questo ci arricchisce sempre.

Pastels

We must feel free to color our lives
with crayons, using our attitude,
without fear of going out from the margins of the design of the paper.
There are times when you feel over the words,
  how to be “synchronized” with someone,
as if the time and space lose boundary,
So with those crayons can color each breath,
  with the certainty that we are not interpreted but including
  and this enriches us forever.

Frammenti d’azzurro – Fragments of blue


Frammenti d’azzurro

Dolore che frantuma
e disperde colori
sogni infranti non alitano più
sotto una complice luna
– ora che tutto è perduto
è ombra di sé stessa –

Raccogliendo frammenti
d’azzurro e nuovi profumi
il fiore diviene germoglio
per dare nuovo vigore
all’anima afflitta

Fragments of blue

Pain shatters
and disperses color
breathed no more broken dreams
an accomplice in the moon
– Now that all is lost
is a shadow of itself –

Picking up pieces
blue and new fragrances
the flower bud becomes
to reinvigorate
troubled soul

Tetto di nuvole – Roof of clouds


Tetto di nuvole

Tetto di nuvole
per i sogni che sfiorano
in leggeri aliti
Respiri di cielo
con la voce che accarezza
anche la languida luna
Colorata coperta
che copre il tempo
nel percorso senza risposta
Magia e incanto
di una notte complice
di proiettate immagini
Distanze mai percorse
nel conoscere l’impossibile
con gli occhi socchiusi
Cavalcando i battiti
e le paure in cerca di te
per scoprire intrecci magici

Roof of clouds

Roof of clouds
for the dreams that reach
in light airs
Breath of Heaven
with the voice that caresses
even the languid moon
Colorful blanket
covering the time
in the path unanswered
Magic and enchantment
one night party
of projected images
Distance never traveled
in knowing the impossible
with eyes half-closed
Riding the beat
and fears in search of you
to discover weaves magic
