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]

Annunci

Essere o non essere


Riflettendo…

La Riflessione

Finché durerà lo spazio,
e finché rimarranno degli esseri umani,

fino allora che possa rimanere anch’io
a scacciare le sofferenze del mondo.

Tendzin Gyatso, XIV Dalai Lama
Preghiera alla fine del Discorso per il Premio Nobel
Oslo, 10-12-1989

——————————-

In noi gli strumenti per aprire il pugno,
per non stringere forte il nostro individualismo:

Compassione ed amorevolezza,
capacità di accogliere ogni essere
senza conoscere pregiudizio
sono la via che conduce verso il senso
di un esistenza pregna di significato.

Nulla è separato
sino a quando noi stessi
non erigiamo invisibili mura
che fanno di noi persone sofferenti e sole.

Poetyca

L’insegnamento

Essere o non essere

La realtà non ha niente a che fare con l’esistenza e la non-esistenza.

Quando Shakespeare dice:

“Essere o non essere,
questo è il problema”,

il Buddha risponde:

“Essere o non essere,
non è questo il problema”.

Essere e non essere sono soltanto due idee, l’una opposta all’altra:
non sono una realtà e non descrivono la realtà.

Maestro Thich Nhat Hanh

——————————-

La mente specchia la nostra illusione
e la realtà, si aggrappa alle immagini
che giorno per giorno sa costruire.

La visione profonda allarga e definisce
quello che non possono spiegare centinaia di parole.

Essere o non essere non è il fulcro
del nostro percorso, poichè quanto sai accogliere
quello che è oltre la tua conoscenza, nulla è e nulla non è.

In un soffio di vento tutto muta e tutto si trasforma,
cosa resta di quello che hai creduto di essere solo un momento fa?

Una candela nella notte


wp-1450202753184.jpeg



Una candela nella notte

Guarda tutta la gente: uomini. donne, bambini
e Leggi oggi dentro ai loro occhi un solo cuore,
che grida la ricerca di libertà per un mondo migliore.
Respira il colore della tua passione,
per la vita, per il dialogo e per un solo amore
dove tutti hanno voce e dignità.
Accendi la lampada in questa notte
e regala un tuo pensiero o una preghiera
per chi ha dimenticato di essere.
Soffia via la sofferenza nei ricordi incisi nel passato
e raccogli l’ultima briciola di speranza
perchè è adesso che possiamo vivere la pace.
22.08.2008 Poetyca



A candle in the night

Watch all people: men. women, children
Read today and into their eyes one heart,
crying seeking freedom for a better world.

Breathe the color of your passion,
for life, for dialogue and one love
where all have a voice and dignity.

Light a lamp tonight
and offers you a thought or a prayer
for those who have forgotten that.

Blows away the pain etched in the memories in the past
and collect the last shred of hope
because now we can live peace.

The best of Van Morrison



George Ivan “Van” Morrison (Belfast, 31 agosto 1945) è un cantante, polistrumentista e paroliere proveniente dall’Irlanda del Nord; suona diversi strumenti tra i quali chitarra, armonica a bocca, tastiere, sassofono e occasionalmente anche la batteria.

Dopo gli esordi blues rock con i Them, Morrison intraprese una carriera solista in bilico tra la passione giovanile per la musica nera, una forte vena sperimentale (che lo ha portato a sconfinare spesso in territori jazz) e uno stretto legame con la musica tradizionale della sua terra d’origine[1][2]. A rendere unico il suo stile contribuiscono la sua caratteristica vocalità[3] e una intensa poetica che abbraccia musica e parole in modo altamente espressivo.

La rivista Rolling Stone lo classifica quarantaduesimo nella sua lista dei cento migliori artisti di sempre[4] nonché ventiquattresimo in quella dei cento migliori cantanti[5]. Le sue esibizioni dal vivo, al suo meglio, sono state definite come mistiche e trascendenti.

Inoltre due suoi album, Astral Weeks e Moondance, compaiono nella lista dei 500 migliori album di sempre, ancora secondo Rolling Stone.

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

George Ivan “Van” Morrison, OBE (born 31 August 1945) is a Northern Irish singer-songwriter and musician. Some of his recordings, such as the studio albums Astral Weeks and Moondance and the live album It’s Too Late to Stop Now, are critically acclaimed. He has received six Grammy Awards, the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Known as “Van the Man” to his fans, Morrison started his professional career when, as a teenager in the late 1950s, he played a variety of instruments including guitar, harmonica, keyboards and saxophone for various Irish showbands covering the popular hits of the day. He rose to prominence in the mid-1960s as the lead singer of the Northern Irish R&B band Them, with whom he recorded the garage band classic “Gloria”. His solo career began under the pop-hit oriented guidance of Bert Berns with the release of the hit single “Brown Eyed Girl” in 1967. After Berns’ death, Warner Bros. Records bought out his contract and allowed him three sessions to record Astral Weeks in 1968.[1] Even though this album would gradually garner high praise, it was initially a poor seller; however, the next one, Moondance, established Morrison as a major artist,[2] and throughout the 1970s he built on his reputation with a series of critically acclaimed albums and live performances. Morrison continues to record and tour, producing albums and live performances that sell well and are generally warmly received, sometimes collaborating with other artists, such as Georgie Fame and The Chieftains. In 2008 he performed Astral Weeks live for the first time since 1968.

Much of Morrison’s music is structured around the conventions of soul music and R&B, such as the popular singles “Brown Eyed Girl”, “Jackie Wilson Said (I’m in Heaven When You Smile)”, “Domino” and “Wild Night”. An equal part of his catalogue consists of lengthy, loosely connected, spiritually inspired musical journeys that show the influence of Celtic tradition, jazz, and stream-of-consciousness narrative, such as Astral Weeks and lesser-known works such as Veedon Fleece and Common One.[3][4] The two strains together are sometimes referred to as “Celtic Soul”

The best of Rolling Stones


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Beatles Playlist (Greatest Hits)


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33iz-1Mfus4&list=PLz2n4ChRKOrfqsabO_FKd70qHY67BDzHh]

The Beatles sono stati un gruppo musicale rock inglese[5], originario di Liverpool e attivo dal 1960 al 1970. La formazione ha segnato un’epoca nella musica, nel costume, nella moda e nella pop art[6]. Ritenuti un fenomeno di comunicazione di massa di proporzioni mondiali[7], a distanza di vari decenni dal loro scioglimento ufficiale – e dopo la morte di due dei quattro componenti – i Beatles contano ancora un enorme seguito e numerosi sono i loro fan club esistenti in ogni parte del mondo[8].

Secondo una stima del 2001, è risultato in assoluto il gruppo musicale di maggior successo commerciale, con vendite complessive che superano il miliardo di dischi e di musicassette[9], e per la rivista Rolling Stone i Beatles sono i più grandi artisti di tutti i tempi[10].

L’aura che circonda lo sviluppo del loro successo mediatico e che ha favorito la nascita della cosiddetta Beatlemania e lo straordinario esito artistico raggiunto comemusicisti rock sono inoltre oggetto di studio di università, psicologi e addetti del settore

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

The Beatles were an English rock band that formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the greatest and most influential act of the rock era.[1] Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with severalgenres, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements in innovative ways. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as “Beatlemania“, but as the group’s music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, they came to be perceived as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era’s sociocultural revolutions.

The Beatles built their reputation playing clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg over a three-year period from 1960. Manager Brian Epstein moulded them into a professional act and producer George Martin enhanced their musical potential. They gained popularity in the United Kingdom after their first hit, “Love Me Do“, in late 1962. They acquired the nickname “the Fab Four” as Beatlemania grew in Britain over the following year, and by early 1964 they had become international stars, leading the “British Invasion” of the United States pop market. From 1965 onwards, the Beatles produced what many consider their finest material, including the innovative and widely influential albums Rubber Soul (1965), Revolver (1966), Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), The Beatles (commonly known as the White Album, 1968) andAbbey Road (1969).

After their break-up in 1970, they all enjoyed successful musical careers of varying lengths. McCartney and Starr, the surviving members, remain musically active. Lennon was shot and killed in December 1980, and Harrison died of lung cancer in November 2001.

According to the RIAA, the Beatles are the best-selling music artists in the United States, with 178 million certified units. They have had more number-one albums on the British charts and sold more singles in the UK than any other act. In 2008, the group topped Billboard magazine’s list of the all-time most successful “Hot 100” artists; as of 2015, they hold the record for most number-one hits on the Hot 100 chart with twenty. They have received ten Grammy Awards, an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score and fifteen Ivor Novello Awards. Collectively included in Time magazine’s compilation of the twentieth century’s 100 most influential people, they are the best-selling band in history, with estimated sales of over 600 million records worldwide.[2][3] The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988, with all four being inducted individually as well from 1994 to 2015.

Continuiamo a credere che siamo separati.
Non lo siamo – neanche per un solo istante.
Lascia andare l’idea della separazione
e sparirà la paura della morte.  
Se diventi uno con il tutto, vivrai per sempre,
sarai al di là della nascita e della morte.

                                          Osho

We continue to believe that we are separate.
We’re not – not even for an instant.
Let go of the idea of ​​separation
will disappear and the fear of death.
If you become one with everything, you will live forever,
‘re beyond birth and death.

John Mellencamp – full album- the best of – greatest hits


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CElCy4IqRvM]

John Mellencamp (Seymour, 7 ottobre 1951) è un musicista, cantante e compositore statunitense.

Conosciuto inizialmente con i nomi d’arte di Johnny Cougar, John Cougar e John Cougar Mellencamp, nella sua carriera ha venduto oltre 40 milioni di dischi, è stato nominato a 13 Grammy Awards vincendone uno.

Mellencamp è stato inoltre inserito nella Rock and Roll Hall of Fame il 10 marzo 2008.[2] Le sue più grandi influenze musicali sono state Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie ed iRolling Stones

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

John J Mellencamp,[1] also known as John Cougar Mellencamp (born October 7, 1951), is an American Rock singer-songwriter, musician, painter and occasional actor known for his catchy, populist brand of heartland rock which emphasizes traditional instrumentation. Mellencamp rose to superstardom in the 1980s while “honing an almost startlingly plainspoken writing style that, starting in 1982, yielded a string of Top 10 singles,”[2] including “Hurts So Good,” “Jack & Diane,” “Crumblin’ Down,” “Pink Houses,” “Lonely Ol’ Night,” “Small Town,” “R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.,” “Paper in Fire,” and “Cherry Bomb.” He has sold over 40 million albums worldwide and has amassed 22 Top 40 hits in the United States. In addition, he holds the record for the most tracks by a solo artist to hit number-one on the Hot Mainstream Rock Trackschart, with seven, and has been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, winning one. Mellencamp released his latest album, Plain Spoken, on September 23, 2014 to widespread critical acclaim.

Mellencamp is also one of the founding members of Farm Aid, an organization that began in 1985 with a concert in Champaign, Illinois to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep farm families on their land. The Farm Aid concerts have remained an annual event over the past 30 years, and as of 2015 the organization has raised over $45 million to promote a strong and resilient family farm system of agriculture.

Mellencamp was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 10, 2008.[3] His biggest musical influences are Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, James Brown and The Rolling Stones.[4] Said longtime Rolling Stone contributor Anthony DeCurtis: “Mellencamp has created an important body of work that has earned him both critical regard and an enormous audience. His songs document the joys and struggles of ordinary people seeking to make their way, and he has consistently brought the fresh air of common experience to the typically glamour-addled world of popular music.”[5]

The late Billboard magazine editor-in-chief Timothy White said in 2001: “John Mellencamp is arguably the most important roots rocker of his generation. John has made fiddles, hammer dulcimers, Autoharps and accordions lead rock instruments on a par with electric guitar, bass and drums, and he also brought what he calls ‘a raw Appalachian’ lyrical outlook to his songs. Mellencamp’s best music is rock ‘n roll stripped of all escapism, and it looks directly at the messiness of life as it’s actually lived. In his music, mortality, anxiety, acts of God, questions of romance and brotherhood, and crises of conscience all collide and demand hard decisions……This is rock music that tells the truth on both its composer and the culture he’s observing.

Best Of Bob Marley


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K69A1lL1PHQ]

Robert Nesta Marley, detto Bob (Nine Mile, 6 febbraio 1945Miami, 11 maggio 1981), è stato un cantautore, chitarrista e attivista giamaicano.

generalmente identificato con il genere musicale reggae, che peraltro lo rese popolare fuori dalla Giamaica anzi, è più esatto affermare che grazie a Bob Marley questo genere (il reggae) fu apprezzato in tutto il mondo. In riconoscimento dei suoi meriti, un mese dopo la morte fu insignito del prestigioso Jamaican Order of Merit. In molte delle sue canzoni Marley denuncia l’emarginazione dei poveri da parte del potere.

La sua attività ha inizio nel 1961 con il suo primo singolo Judge Not prodotta per l’etichetta Beverley’s del produttore Leslie Kong, ma questa canzone, anche se molto innovativa, non ebbe grande successo e quindi nel 1964 Bob decise di formare la band The Wailers (Piagnoni); dopo il loro scioglimento, nel 1974, riforma la band reclutando nuovi elementi, ma continua a suonare e a pubblicare dischi con il nome Bob Marley and The Wailers. Nel 2008 è stato posizionato al 19º posto nella lista dei 100 migliori cantanti secondo Rolling Stone e tra le sue migliori “tracce vocali” ci sono I Shot the Sheriff, No Woman, No Cry, e Redemption Song

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

Robert Nesta “Bob” Marley, OM (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981) was a Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim.[1][2] Starting out in 1963 with the group the Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style that would later resonate with audiences worldwide. The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records with producer Lee Scratch Perry.[3] After the Wailers disbanded in 1974,[4] Marley pursued a solo career that culminated in the release of the album Exodus in 1977, which established his worldwide reputation and produced his status as one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, with sales of more than 75 million records.[5][6] He was a committed Rastafari who infused his music with a sense of spirituality

Senza più confini


Senza più confine 

Vorrei accennare 
un passo di danza 
tra i respiri di questa sera 
e i riflessi di luna sul mare. 

Raccogliere sorrisi d’anima 
per tingere le tele del silenzio 
dove tutto è vortice lieve 
che accarezza l’istante. 

Vorrei un eterno abbraccio 
che accompagni tra stanze segrete 
dove in un sussurro ti racconterei 
voci e palpiti di fantasie e realtà. 

Vorrei abbandonare tutte le paure 
sul ciglio di questa strada 
ed essere viandante che ricorda 
ogni orma rincorsa e lasciata 

Essere quel che sono adesso 
nella magia di un riflesso di cristallo 
sul mare che s’increspa ed accoglie 
tutte le voci del mondo senza più confine.

No more borders
Let me start
a dance step
between breaths tonight
and the reflections of moonlight on the sea.
Collecting smiles soul
to dye the canvas of silence
vortex where everything is slightly
That Shakes the moment.

I would like an eternal embrace
to accompany in secret rooms
where you tell it in a whisper
voices and thrills of fantasy and reality.

I would abandon all fears
on the side of the street
traveler who remember and be
every step run-up and left

Being that I am right now
a reflection in the magic of crystal
ripples on the sea and welcomes
all items in the world without borders.

Nell’oceano d’Amore

Consapevole il passo
di chi sa cercare
vede il colore delle cose
oltre tutte le forme
le accarezza e ne assapora il senso:
tutto è scoperta, come pezzi di un puzzle
che nell perfetto incastro
restituiscono voce
al tuo infinito viaggio.

Sono attimi infiniti
senza più tempo
dove ogni respiro è goccia
che al mare ritorna
” Tutto è in Uno ed Uno è in Tutto”
e non potresti mai naufragare
nell’oceano d’Amore
che da sempre ti sorregge.

Bruce Douglas Cockburn OC (/ˈkbərn/; born May 27, 1945)[1] is a Canadian guitarist and singer-songwriter whose career spans over 40 years. His song styles range from folk to jazz-influenced rock and his lyrics cover a broad range of topics that reveal a passion for human rights, politics and spirituality.

In 2014, he released his memoirs, Rumours of Glory: A Memoir.[2]  

Cockburn was born in 1945 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and spent some of his early years on a farm outside Pembroke, Ontario. He has stated in interviews that his first guitar was one he found around 1959 in his grandmother’s attic, which he adorned with golden stars and used to play along to radio hits.[3] Cockburn attended Nepean High School, where his 1964 yearbook photo states his desire “to become a musician”.[4]He attended Berklee School of Music in Boston for three semesters in the mid-1960s. In 1966 he joined an Ottawa band called The Children, which lasted for about a year. In the spring of 1967 he joined the final lineup of The Esquires. He moved to Toronto that summer to form The Flying Circus with former Bobby Kris & The Imperials members Marty Fisher and Gordon MacBain and ex-Tripp member Neil Lillie. The group recorded some material in late 1967 (which remains unreleased) before changing its name to Olivus in the spring of 1968, by which time Lillie (who changed his name to Neil Merryweather) had been replaced by Dennis Pendrith from Livingstone’s Journey. Olivus opened for The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Cream in April 1968. That summer Cockburn broke up the band with the intention of going solo, but ended up in the band 3’s a Crowd with David Wiffen, Colleen Peterson, and Richard Patterson, who had been a co-member of The Children. Cockburn left 3’s a Crowd in the spring of 1969 to pursue a solo career.

Cockburn’s first solo appearance was at the Mariposa Folk Festival in 1967, and in 1969 he was a headliner. In 1970 he released his self-titled, solo album. Cockburn’s guitar work and songwriting won him an enthusiastic following. His early work featured rural and nautical imagery and Biblical metaphors. Raised as an agnostic, early in his career he became a Christian.[5] Many of his albums from the 1970s refer to Christianity, which in turn informs his concerns for human rights and environmentalism. His references to Christianity include the Grail imagery of 20th-century Christian poet Charles Williams and the ideas of theologian Harvey Cox.[6]

In 1970 Cockburn became partners with Bernie Finkelstein in the music publishing firm Golden Mountain Music.[7]

While Cockburn had been popular in Canada for years, he did not have a big impact in the United States until 1979, with the release of the album Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws. “Wondering Where the Lions Are“, the first single from that album, reached No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US in June 1980, and earned Cockburn an appearance on NBC‘s hit TV show Saturday Night Live.

Cockburn was married from 1969 to 1980 and has a daughter from that marriage.[citation needed] He wrote the song “Little Seahorse”, released on In the Falling Dark, in late 1975 about the time when his daughter wasin utero.[citation needed]

Through the 1980s Cockburn’s songwriting became increasingly urban, global and political as he became more involved with progressive causes. His political concerns were first hinted at on the albums: Humans,Inner City Front and The Trouble with Normal. They became more evident in 1984, with his second US radio hit, “If I Had a Rocket Launcher” (No. 88 in the US) from the Stealing Fire album. He had written the song a year earlier, after visiting Guatemalan refugee camps in Mexico that were attacked by Guatemalan military helicopters. His political activism continues to the present. Cockburn has travelled to countries such as Mozambique and Iraq, played benefit concerts, and written songs on a variety of subjects ranging from the International Monetary Fund to land mines. His internationalist bent is reflected in the many world musicinfluences in his music, including reggae and Latin music.

In 1991 Intrepid Records released Kick at the Darkness, a tribute album to Cockburn whose title comes from a phrase in his song “Lovers in a Dangerous Time“. It features the Barenaked Ladies‘ cover of that song, which became their first Top 40 hit and an element in their early success. This lyric was also referenced by U2 in their song “God Part II” from their album Rattle and Hum.

In the early 1990s, Cockburn teamed with T-Bone Burnett for two albums, Nothing but a Burning Light and Dart to the Heart. The latter included a song, “Closer to the Light”, inspired by the death of songwriter Mark Heard, a close friend of Cockburn and Burnett. Cockburn frequently refers to Heard as his favourite songwriter and he was one of many artists who paid tribute to Heard on an album and video titled Strong Hand of Love.

In 1998 Cockburn travelled with filmmaker Robert Lang to Mali, West Africa, where he jammed with Grammy Award-winning blues musician Ali Farka Toure and kora master Toumani Diabate. The month-long journey was documented in the film River of Sand, which won the Regard Canadien award for best documentary at the Vues d’Afrique Film Festival in Montreal. It was also invited for competition at the International Festival of Environmental Films in Paris.[8]

Some of Cockburn’s previously published material had been collected in several albums: Resume, Mummy Dust, and Waiting for a Miracle. His first greatest hits collection was Anything Anytime Anywhere: Singles 1979–2002, released in 2002.

In January 2003 Cockburn finished recording his 21st album, You’ve Never Seen Everything, which features contributions from Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, Sam Phillips, Sarah Harmer, Hugh Marsh, Jonell Mosser, Larry Taylor and Steven Hodges. (Taylor and Hodges, formerly of Canned Heat who performed at Monterey and Woodstock in the 1960s, may be known best for their work with Tom Waits).

Cockburn performed a set at the Live 8 concert in Barrie, Ontario, on July 2, 2005. Speechless, an instrumental compilation of new and previously released material, was released on October 24, 2005. His 22nd album, Life Short Call Now, was released on July 18, 2006.

Canadian senator and retired general Roméo Dallaire, who is active in humanitarian fundraising and promoting awareness, appeared on stage at the University of Victoria with Cockburn. The October 4, 2008, concert was held to aid the plight of child soldiers.[9]

In 2009 Cockburn travelled to Afghanistan to visit his brother, Capt. John Cockburn, and to play a concert for Canadian troops. He performed his 1984 song “If I Had a Rocket Launcher” and was temporarily awarded an actual rocket launcher by the military. Cockburn has stated that, while unsure of the original Invasion of Afghanistan, he supported Canada’s role there.[10]

Cockburn released his studio album Small Source of Comfort in 2011. “Lois on the Autobahn”, a cheerful and experiential instrumental recalling “Rouler sa bosse” from Salt, Sun and Time is a tribute to Cockburn’s mother, Lois, who succumbed to cancer in 2010.[citation needed]

Cockburn married his longtime girlfriend M.J. Hannett shortly after the birth of his second daughter, Iona (b. November 2011) in 2011.[11][12] As of 2014, the family lives in the San Francisco area, where Cockburn is writing his memoirs up to 2004.[13]

A documentary film, Bruce Cockburn Pacing the Cage,[14][15] was released in 2013 on television and a brief theatrical showing; directed by Joel Goldberg, gave a rare look into Cockburn’s music, life and politics

Affidamento


Affidamento

Affidarsi è saper lasciare i remi
perchè la corrente ci conduca
dove dobbiamo essere:

senza timore si accoglie la via
senza giudizio si abbandonano le paure
senza ricerca si trova l’essenza

perchè tutto in noi sia il contenitore vuoto
che accoglie il contenuto e ne sappia
preservare l’essenza.

Affidarsi è ascoltare la vera natura
che manifesta quel che è
dove il retto agire nasce dal retto ascolto.

Nell’origine di ogni equilibrio
per saper dare saggezza al proprio sentire
ed essere oscillante flusso della ricerca d’amore.

20.10 2008 Poetyca

To trust

To trust is to be able to leave the oars
because the current lead us
where we have to be:

without fear we welcome the way
give themselves up without trial fears
without research is the essence

because everything in us is the empty
that receives the content and it
preserving the essence.

To trust is to listen to the true nature
which shows what it is
where the right action arises from right listen.

The origin of every balance
to be able to listen your wisdom
and be oscillating flow of the search for love.

Se tutto sai abbracciare

—————————-

Ogni giorno armonizza
ogni tuo passo,
raccogli note e fai suonare
la musica che s’accorda al cuore:
allargando le braccia nel silenzio svuotati,
da ogni attaccamento sarai liberato
per divenire strumento
che si riconduce all’essenza del tuo essere
e troverai nel dharma la via del risveglio.

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]

Notte


Notte

Dolce notte, scivolando
in luoghi d’incanto
tra l’armonia del sogno
ed il rilassato respiro.

Lucciola danza lieve
tra luci sommessa e carezze
d’un alito vivo e fugace
sino all’alba d’onde increspate.

Sia la notte
estasi e carezza
per cercare nel sogno
la nuova certezza:
il tempo non esiste
e in ogni luogo è dolcezza.

Night

Sweet night, slipping
in place of enchantment
harmony between the dream
and relaxed breathing.

Firefly dance mild
between light and soft caresses
I live and breath for a fleeting
until the dawn of choppy waves.

Both the night
ecstasy and caress
to search for in the dream
The new certainty:
time does not exist
and in any place is sweet.

Musica d’amore


Musica d’amore

Per rendere un puro gioiello
il giardino della nostra amorevolezza
noi dobbiamo lavorare molto.

Ogni spazio aperto da una ferita
diventa solco che accoglie il seme.

Noi siamo anfora che contiene acqua viva,
noi siamo flauto che è soffiato
per portare la musica dell’ amato.

Om shanti om

sia pace ed armonia

The Best of the Doors


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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fino a che siete soggetti

non sarete liberi dal fardello del corpo.

Kuei-Shan (771-854)

Seguire istinti, richieste
che ci conducano a soddisfare
ogni segnale corporeo,senza discernimento,
è non saperne superare il limite,
non saper fare della nostra volontà
il percorso che possa liberarci
dal potere che esso esercita su di noi.

Seguire un percorso
che conduca alla consapevolezza
di altre qualità, è il pilastro
del non attaccamento, dell’ascolto profondo

Cos’è la Visione?

Riflettendo…

La Riflessione

Sì, io posso, io voglio abbandonare ogni cosa;
essere in quel vuoto dove vi è quella luce bianca che contiene tutti i colori.

Con gli occhi semiaperti,
ti ascolto senza orecchie,
quando tu vieni.
Tu che non puoi venire.
Tu che sei me.

La forma è vuoto,
il vuoto è forma.

Maestro F. Viallet

——————–

Nel silenzio,
oltre il silenzio
è la conoscenza
quella consapevolezza
che abbatte ogni forma
che raccoglie nel vuoto
la piena coscienza
di essere nell’essenza
di quanto si è:
realtà da abbracciare
ed accogliere nel qui ed ora.

Poetyca

…………………….

L’insegnamento

Cos’è la Visione?

Non è niente di meno che vedere il vero stato delle cose così come sono;
è sapere che la vera natura della mente è la vera natura di ogni cosa
ed è realizzare che la vera natura della mente è la verità assoluta.

Dudjom Rinpoche dice,

La Visione è la comprensione della nuda coscienza che comprende ogni cosa:
percezione sensoriale ed esistenza fenomenica, samsara e nirvana.

Questa coscienza ha due aspetti:
“vacuità” come assoluto e “apparenza” o “percezione” come relativo.

Sogyal Rinpoche

——————————–

Per abbracciare la realtà
si deve cercare la sua visione,
il retto modo di accogliere e comprende
che essa è diversa dalle aspettative,
dagli attaccamenti e dalle percezioni erronee.

Essere realtà è saper fare spazio ad una visione
della pura mente: che non separi
ma tenga nel giusto ordine e valore
sia l’impermanente che quanto sia legato
a quell’unità che non contiene alcuna forma,
che è la realizzazione di una verità assoluta
che tutto comprende e nella quale siamo compresi.

a raccogliere dalla tua retta osservazione
cosa in te è corretto e cosa deve essere compreso?

Parti dalla causa, abbraccia la tua incertezza
per conoscere la forte del tuo passo.

L’insegnamento

Il valore degli errori

Quanti errori
si possono fare
in una vita?

Quanta comprensione
si può realizzare
proprio da quegli stessi errori?

La luce dell’esperienza,
fa brillare ogni vita.

Bhikkhu Samahita

—————————

Senza errore
non ci sarebbe insegnamento,
senza abbracciare la compassione
per noi stessi e per l’altrui errore
non avremmo la capacità di comprendere
e di apprendere la lezione nascosta.

La nostra vita, pur ricca di errori,
non basta per apprendere
e per correggere noi stessi.
Gli errori degli altri non vanno indicati
e condannati,per farne motivo della nostra superiorità,
agli altri possiamo essere grati per l’opportunità
che ci offrono nell’apprendere la loro lezione
e farne tesoro per crescere.

L’errore di un altro è il nostro stesso errore,
siamo tutti umani, capaci di inciampare
di fronte al medesimo ostacolo posto sul nostro cammino.

Per questo porgere una mano per aiutare a rialzarsi
è più nobile dell’accusa che separa.

eflection

contradictions

This is what you say,
but what does your conscience?

You’ve played well lately?

Because this is what matters ,
at the end .

bhikkhu Samahita

—————————

Listen carefully to your intention,
noted whether it is expressed
from your attitude and your words.

Be conforms to your purpose
and to your search , without any deviation .

it is evident
what you really are ,
both clear your say
without borrowing
dresses of other measures
and other persons ,
as it is not the disguise
to reveal your sincere
inner work.

How could it be consistent
your path if you have not yet started
to collect from your line observation
what in you is correct and what should be included?

Parts of the cause, embrace your uncertainty
to know of your strong hand.

Poetyca

The teaching

The value of the errors

how many errors
you can do
in a lifetime?

How much understanding
you can achieve
just by those same errors?

The light of experience,
shine every life.

bhikkhu Samahita

—————————

no error
there would be no teaching ,
without embracing compassion
for ourselves and for others the error
we would not have the ability to understand
and to learn the lesson hidden .

Our life , though full of errors ,
not enough to learn
and to correct ourselves.
The faults of others are not mentioned
and convicted, to make it because of our superiority ,
others we can be grateful for the opportunity
we have to learn their lesson
and treasure to grow.

The error of another is our own fault ,
we are all human , capable of tripping
faced with the same obstacle placed in our path .

To this extend a hand to help her up
is more noble than the charge that separates them.

Un abbraccio al mondo


Un abbraccio al mondo

In tutti noi una risorsa,
la fonte ricca di beni:

Cuore forte nell’amorevolezza
senza giudizio alcuno.

Fermo esempio di equidistanza,
dove non si sceglie ma si esperisce
la compassione per tutti gli esseri.

A volte è il silenzioso rumore
di una lacrima che solca il viso,
solo perchè le braccia sono corte
per un abbraccio al mondo.

25.03.2009 Poetyca

 

An embrace to world

In all of us a resource,
the rich source of goods:

Heart strong in love
without any trial.

firm example of equidistance,
do not choose where it carries
compassion for all beings.

Sometimes it’s the quiet noise
a tear that solca face,
just because your arms are short
for a hug in the world.

25.03.2009 Poetyca


Quando apriamo gli occhi alla realtà, al suo signiificato più profondo, siamo capaci di accogliere ma anche di dare.

Nel dialogo e nella presenza incondizionata è l’opportunità di offrirsi e di accogliere quanto si manifesti negli altri.


In richiamo

Sospeso in un solo respiro
è quel senso di evanescenza,
dove tutto è richiamo,
indicazione di un meraviglioso attimo
che vissuto – qui ed ora – ripete
l’armonia di gesti e di ricerca viva.

14.08.2008 Poetyca

In tutti noi una traccia sottile della quale cogliere che il dualismo non è Amore e non si sposa con la negazione di quella scintilla meravigliosa
che spinge verso gli altri con gentilezza e compassione perchè intersiamo e non potremmo pensare che le risorse che riusciamo a maturare attraverso il nostro percorso interiore, la capacità di superare nodi e tensioni restino come un ” bottino” del quale conservare solo per noi stessi il merito e la sostanza.

Ogni cosa che siamo capaci di essere, dopo aver aperto la strada alla consapevolezza è un dono ricevuto, sempre per causa di altri ( anche e sopratutto in situazioni problematiche) e come altri ci hannno permesso di vincere una battaglia con noi stessi, attaverso il canovaccio della vita, così anche noi nel nostro essere in ricerca possiamo essere causa per altri di chiarificazione e maturazione. Non è la rabbia o l’attaccamento, la confusione e le illusioni a farci da viatico ma l’apertura amorevole verso noi stessi e verso gli altri. Una delle immagini fondamentali che vovremmo avere presente è che coloro che ci appaiono come ” nemici ” o ostili, sono specchio di una parte di noi che va attraversata e risolta, solo con pazienza ed amore possiamo apprendere cosa queste persone ci stiano indicando con il loro tormento e la loro inquietudine e possiamo adoperarci per essere attenti a non dare ” risposta” con il medesimo atteggiamento. Solo l’amore scaccia le ombre.

Un abbraccio dal cuore

Poetyca

When we open our eyes to reality, it is a deeper way
we can accept but also to give.

In dialogue and unconditional presence is the opportunity to offer and
to accept as it occurs in others.

In reference

Suspended in one breath
is that sense of evanescence,
where everything is decoy,
indication of a wonderful second
who lived – here and now – repeat
the harmony of gestures and research alive.

14.08.2008 Poetyca

In all of us a thin track which does not grasp the duality
Love is not married and the negation of that wonderful spark
pushing towards others with kindness and compassion because cross
and we could not believe that the resources we can to mature through
our path interior nodes and the ability to overcome tensions
remain as a “booty” of which only keep for ourselves the
merit and substance.

Everything that we can be, having pioneered
awareness is a gift, again because of other (and also
especially in problem situations) and how others will permit hannno
to win a battle with ourselves, the canvas of attaverso
life, we too in our research can be cause
for more clarification and maturation. It is not anger or
attachment, confusion and delusions to be our food for the journey but
opening loving towards ourselves and towards others. One of
Images fundamental vovremmo have in mind is that those who
appear as enemies or hostile, are a mirror of us who
goes through and resolved, only with patience and love we can learn
What these people are giving us with their anguish and their
concern and we strive to be careful not to give ”
response “with the same attitude. Only love dispels the shadows.

A hug from the heart
Poetyca



Un sorriso


Un sorriso

In noi
il contenitore
che tutto racchiude:
Luce e sogno
forza e cuore
che spezza le catene
di ogni illusione.

Per noi
un bagliore in cielo
e il ritmo di un palpito
che è Vita
anche se non cogli il mistero

Per te
il sorriso della speranza
che in armonia danza
e offre musica e senso
del percorso da scoprire

18.01.2008 Poetyca

A smile

and the rhythm of a heartbeat

For you
the smile of hope
in harmony dance
and offers music and sense
Path to discover

Sulla nuvola


Sulla nuvola

Dolce rumore di nulla,
culla di sogni e sospiri,
là dove il tepore è sogno,
dove la stella guida da sempre.

Lo riconosci il sentiero?
Ricordi l’incisione che facesti
a quella quercia da bambino?

Non hai tempo, non hai mantenuto
l’antica promessa – volevo respirare
tutti i sogni del cuore – essere vivo!

Nuvola soffice t’accompagna
non è fuga, è la saggezza del ricordo:
Offerta di un dono che ti faccia aprire le ali.

Percorso a ritroso per riallacciare
un filo sottile alla memoria del cuore,
in armonia fatata che sa danzare
con colorate movenze di farfalla.

Respira oggi tutta la dolcezza,
sia miele a nutrire il tuo essere
perchè riaprendo gli occhi
saprai manifestare la perduta essenza
della tua iridescente anima.

On the cloud

Soft sound of nothing
cradle of dreams and sighs,
where the warmth is a dream,
where the guiding star forever.

You recognize the path?
Remember that you made the incision
that oak as a child?

Do not have time, you have maintained
the old promise – I breathe
all the dreams of the heart – be alive!

Cloud soft with thee
not escape, is the wisdom of memory:
Offer a gift that makes you open the wings.

Way back to resume
a thin wire to the memory of the heart,
magic that can dance in harmony
movements with colorful butterfly.

Breathe Today all the sweetness,
and honey to nourish your being
because opening his eyes
know the show lost essence
Iridescent your soul.

Contorno d’aurora


Contorno d’aurora

Carezza antica
dal sapore d’attesa
sei ora festante vita
che con dolcezza danza

Intreccio d’armonia
oltre la notte lontana
percorrendo amorevolezza

Contorno d’aurora
che rincorre e palpita
luce e speranza

Outline of dawn

Caress old
flavor waiting
six hours festive life
that gently dance

Intertwining of harmony
beyond the night away
along kindness

Outline of dawn
that chases and beats
light and hope
