Ich stehe mir im Weg







.
People don't realize how much they are in the grip of ideas.
We live among ideas much more than we live in nature.
.
~ Saul Bellow
.
doing so,
"Ich stehe mir im Weg"
I stand in my own way.

Knowledge always deceives.
.
It always limits the Truth, every concept and image does.
.
From cage to cage the caravan moves,
but I give thanks,
.
for at each divine juncture 
my wings expand
and I
.
touch Him more
intimately.

Michelangelo spoke of his work as releasing

and we too, 
captured in invisible "stone"
wait for our Michelangelo to free us.

When I was the forest





.
When I was the stream, when I was the
forest, when I was still the field,
when I was every hoof, foot,
fin and wing, when I
was the sky
itself,
.
no one ever asked me did I have a purpose, no one ever
wondered was there anything I might need,
for there was nothing
I could not
love.
.
It was when I left all we once were that
the agony began, the fear and questions came,
and I wept, I wept. And tears
I had never known
before.
.
So I returned to the river, I returned to
the mountains. I asked for their hand in marriage again,
I begged – I begged to wed every object
and creature,
.
and when they accepted,
God was ever present in my arms.
And He did not say,
“Where have you
been?”
.
For then I knew my soul – every soul -
has always held
Him.
.

Lyrics of Isak Se Meetha Song


Tap tap tapke, rosni
Chait chaand ki, chaand ki chaasni
Mann mein iss ka cho bhara
Rass ki pyaali, pyaali main bani

Maine dekh liya hai sab chakh kar - 4 times
Tere isak se meetha kuch bhi nahi - 2 times
Na sehad, na seera, na sakkar - 2 times
Tere isak se meetha kuch bhi nahi - 4 times

Main tupka tupka kadvi thi
Mann qatra qatra zehar bujha
Meri har ik baat ko nain hui
Tann pal pal jal ke roz bujha
Main tupka tupka kadvi thi
Mann qatra qatra zehar bujha
Meri har ik baat ko nain hui
Tann pal pal jal ke roz bujha
Mere deh pe dastak raaton ki
Aur namak bhari kuch baaton ki

Mere deh pe dastak raaton ki
Aur namak bhari kuch baaton ki
Na baat na karti hai barh kar
Maine dekh liya hai sab chakh kar
Tere isak se meetha tha tha ..
Tere isak se meetha kuch bhi nahi - 4 times

Jagmag jilmil lehrein jholi
Jagmag khelein aankh macholi
Bher bhaandh ki meethi boli
Jor bhi de o natkhat boli
Jagmag jilmil lehrein jholi
Jagmag khelein aankh macholi
Bher bhaandh ki meethi boli
Jor bhi de o natkhat boli
Tarpa na tarpa na tarpa na

Mann mehnga mehnga mangta hai
Tann maati maati mol bikey

Mann mehnga mehnga mangta hai
Tann maati maati mol bikey
Iss tann ke grahak laakhon hain
Koi mann ka na khareedaar dikhe

Iss mann ki basti mein paagal
Ik pal ki masti mein paagal
Iss mann ki basti mein paagal
Ik pal ki masti mein paagal
http://ghazal-kvita.blogspot.com/

Har gudh, misri ko hans kar
Main ne dekh liya hai chakh kar
Tere isak se meetha kuch bhi nahi - 2 times
Na sehed, na seera, na sakkar - 2 times
Tere isak se meetha kuch bhi nahi ..

Lyrics of Challa Song


Oye challa India tu aaya haye, challa India tu aaya
Dhoom chik chik dhoom ..

Challa India, tu aaya ve jindri nu kam te
Laya ni dil nu khich di maya
Raat din taxi chalaunda
Ve motey Dollar kamaunda
Te ne nan, te ne nan ..

Oye challa chad ke kamaiyan
Pyaar diyan karda padaiyan
Kisi naal akhiyan ladaiyan
Ennu koi sona
Lageya ishq ne ennu thageya
Te ne nan, te ne nan ..

Mitran da ae asool hai
Dil dena ta fazool hai
Maar ke majnu hazaar je lagdi na tu vi hun na marri
Fikran tu chadh te saariyan
Pal do pal kar le yaariyan
Gal mann le meri ore kite vaade shaadhe pyaar wale na kareen
Challa, akhiyan sekey goriyan
Maiman dekhe labh ke naina de thekke
Jaam rajj rajj ke
Karda pooriyan aishan karda
Te ne nan, te ne nan ..

Tell me what you thinking about tonight
I wanna do everything wanna do it right
Maybe I could help you free your mind
Open the door, and let me in
And I can take upon it
Let go, you let it initiate
Proximity is the key don’t you hesitate
Go, given to the feeling at least the way
I’m gonna, I’m gonna get.
http://ghazal-kvita.blogspot.com/

Challa tu nai naa si
Hor vi mukhde ne kayi
Jinna te akkh jai aa gayi
Tu jaana hai tah
Hun ja saanu nai teri parwah
Te ne nan, te ne nan ..

साइयां वे - Saaiyaan Ve (Vishal Dadlani)



Movie/Album : ता रा रम पम (2007)
Music By : विशाल ददलानी, शेखर रव्जियानी
Lyrics By : जावेद अख्तर
Performed By : विशाल ददलानी

इक बंजारा इकतारे पर कब से गावे
जीवन है इक डोर, डोर उलझे ही जावे
आसानी से गिरहें खुलती नहीं है
मन वो हठीला है जो फिर भी सुलझावे
राही का तो काम है चलता ही जावे
साइयां वे साइयां वे, सुन-सुन साइयां वे

तिनका-तिनका चिड़िया लावे
ऐसे अपना घर वो बनावे
ज़र्रा-ज़र्रा तू भी जोड़ के इक घिरौन्दा बना
बूँद-बूँद है बनता सागर
धागा-धागा बनती चादर
धीरे-धीरे यूँ ही तू भी अपना जीवन सजा
सींचता है यहाँ जो बगिया को, वही फूल भी पावे
राही का तो...

दिन है पर्वत जैसे भारी
रातें बोझल-बोझल सारी
तू ये सोचता है राह कैसे आसान हो
सारी अनजानी है राहें, जिनमें ढूंढे तेरी निगाहें
कोई ऐसा पल आज या कल मेहरबान हो
घूमें कब से डगर-डगर, तू मन को ये समझावे
राही का तो...

Allah ke Banday Meaning



Allah ke Banday, or Allah ke Bande, was a famous song, sung by Kailash Kher in the movie Waisa bhi Hota hai Part 2. Now there's a movie coming up with the title Allah ke Banday.

As known to all, Allah means God, while Banda has many meanings. Banda is nowadays used for any man, while earlier Banda was used mostly for a servant or a slave. In this context, banda means a devotee to God. Hence, the phrase Allah ke Banday, which means Devotees to God.

But at the same time, if you go by the popular meaning of the word where Banda can be any man, or rather, any human, Allah ke Banday can also mean God's humans, or humans made by God, which would simply mean Humans. Basically it depends on the context as to which meaning would you like to take here.

न तू ज़मीं के लिए - Na Tu Zameen Ke Liye (Md. Rafi)



Music/Album : दास्तान (1970)
Music By : लक्ष्मीकांत-प्यारेलाल
Lyrics By : साहिर लुधियानवी
Performed By : मो.रफ़ी

न तू ज़मीं के लिए
है न आसमां के लिए
तेरा वजूद है
अब दास्ताँ के लिए

पलट के सु-ए-चमन
देखने से क्या होगा
वो शाख ही ना रही
जो थी आशियाँ के लिए
न तू...

गरज परस्त जहां में
वफ़ा तलाश न कर
ये शय बनी थी किसी
दूसरे जहां के लिए
तेरा वजूद...

Bin Tere (Unplugged) Lyrics, Meaning



Shekhar Ravjiani's Unplugged version of Bin tere from IHLS (I Hate Love Stories) is one of my most favorite songs. Here are the lyrics and English Translation of the guitar based song.

teri nigaahon ke teri hi raahon ke
kareeb se gayi zindagi
tujhe kyun dekha na tujhe kyun jaana na
shikaayatein karun ya nahi
thami hain yeh saansein, bhari hain yeh aankhein
sahoon kaise ab yeh faasla
bin tere bin tere bin tere,
koi khalish hai hawaon mein bin tere

close to your eyes, close to your paths only,
did life pass through,
Why didn't I see you, Why didn't I know you,
Should I complain or not?
These breaths are paused, these eyes are brimming,
how to bear with this gap now,
without you, without you, without you,
there is an emptiness in the winds without you..

kuchh bacha hi nahi darmiyaan
saans leti hai ab yeh dooriyan
dil nahi jaante raahon mein
haath se haath chhoote the kahaan
kyun nazar ke kinaare toote hain khwaab saare tu bata
soona soona samaa hai khaali khaali jahaan hai ab mera
bin tere bin tere bin tere..
koi khalish hai hawaon mein bin tere..

there is absolutely nothing that remained in between (us),
(only) these distances breathe now,
hearts don't know, in the paths,
where hands were left from hands,
why at the edges of eyes, are all the dreams broken, tell me,
all around me it's deserted, my world is now blank,
without you, without you, without you,
there is an emptiness in the winds without you....

Talaffuz Meaning



When Javed Akhtar came on Indian Idol, there was one word that was heard a number of times. So much so that when a mimicry artist comes to mimic him on stage, he definitely says 'Aapka Talaffuz sahi nahin hai.'

But the fact is that he was completely right in his own sense because if your Talaffuz is not right while singing, it gets irritating.

OK. Let me come to the meaning. Talaffuz is an Urdu word, which means the pronunciation, articulation, the way of saying a word. In Hindi, you can call it uchcharan (उच्चारण). The word holds a real importance in music as in Urdu, slightly different way of saying a word may completely change it's meaning. For example Jaleel and Zaleel are almost opposites as Jaleel means having a splendor/style while Zaleel is humiliated, with no respect.

So next time someone says your 'talaffuz' isn't right, better take him seriously. :P

Nasheman Meaning



Tinkon ke nasheman tak, is mod se jaate hain...

Any guesses as to what is Nasheman? Well, Nasheman means a nest. In Hindi, Ghosla. Mostly houses, many times houses where one feels relaxing, are called Nasheman and in the same context the word is used in poetry.

Personally, I have had a huge fascination with the word as I have seen a very big house full of trees in my hometown, and the house is named Nasheman. Ever since I know the meaning of the word, I can relate it to that beautiful house that looks all green with trees. A nest of a house, probably that would be a perfect meaning for Nasheman.

FORGET ME NOT



1. Aakho Se Yuh Aasu Dhalke

Sagar Se Jaise Mye Chalke
Hum Samze Mafhum-e-bhara
Koi Aaya Bhesh Badal Ke
Kash Bata Sakte Parvane
Kya Khoya, Kya Paya Jalke
Manjil Tak Wo Kya Phucha
Jisne Dekhi Raah Na Chalke


2. Abhi Wo Kamsin Ubhar Raha Hai
Abhi Hai Us Par Shabab Aadha
Abhi Jigar Mein Khalish Hai Aadhi
Abhi Hai Mujh Par Itab Aadha
Mere Sawal-e-wasal Par
Tum Nazar Zhuka Kar Khade Hue Ho
Tumhi Batao Yeh Baat Kya Hai
Sawal Pura Jawab Aadha
Laga Ke Lare Pe Le To Aaya Hu
Shekh Sahab Ko Maykade Tak
Agar Yeh Do Ghut Aaj Pile
Milega Mujhko Sawab Aadha
Kabhi Sitam Hai, Kabhi Tagaphul
Yeh Safh Jahir Hai Mujhe Ab Tak
Hua Hu Men Kamyab Aadha


3. Husn Walo Ka Ahtram Karo
Kuch To Dunia Me Nake Kam Karo
Shekh Aye Hai Bavju Hokar
Ab To Pine Ka Intezam Karo
Abhi Barsege Har Taraf Jalwe
Tum Nigaho Ka Ehtmam Karo
Log Darne Lage Gunaho Se
Barish-e-rhmat-e-tamam Karo


4. In Ashako Ko Pani Kehna
Bhool Nahi Nadani Hai
Tan Man Mein Jo Aag Lagade
Yeh To Aysa Pani Hai
Kaise Tum Se Ishq Hua Tha
Kya Kya Hum Par Biti Hai
Sun Lo To Sacha Afsana
Warna Ek Khani Hai
Shaekh-o-brhaman, Jahid-o-waiz
Piri Mein Yeh Kya Jane
Bhool Bhi Ho Jati Hai Isme
Ishq Mein Lazami Hai Yeh 'sehar'
Dil Wale Ho Maat Ghbrao
Yeh To Reet Purani Hai


5. Phool Bhare Hai Daman Daman
Lakin Vira Ghulshan Ghulshan
Akal Ki Baten Karne Waale
Kya Samzhege Dil Ki Dhadkan
Kaun Kisi Ke Dukh Ka Sathi
Aapne Aasu Apna Daman
Tera Daman Chodu Kaise
Meri Dunia Tera Daman


6. Teri Behrukhi Aur Teri Mehrbani
Yahi Maut Hai Aur Yahi Zindagani
Wahi Ek Fasana Wahi Ek Kahani
Javani, Javani, Javani, Javani
Laboo Par Tabasum
To Aakho Mein Pani
Yahi Hai Dil Zalo Ki Nishani
Batau Hai Kya Aasuo Ki Hakikath
Jo Samzho To Sab Kuch
Na Samzho To Pani


7. Tum Hamare Nahi To Kya Gam Hai
Hum Tumhare To Hai Yeh Kya Kam Hai
Husn Ki Sohkhia Zara Dekho
Gahe Shoal Hai Gahe Shabnam Hai
Muskura Do Zara Khuda Ke Liye
Sham-e-mhafil Mein Roshni Kam Haai
Ban Gaya Hai Yeh Zindagi Aab To
Tuz Se Badkar Hume Tera Gam Hai


8. Utha Surahi Yeh Shisha-o-jaam Le Saki
Phir Iske Baad Khuda Ka Bhi Naam La Saki
Phir Iske Baad Hame Tishnagi Rahe Na Rahe
Kuch Aur Dare Muravat Se Kaam Le Saki
Phir Iske Baad Jo Hoga Wo Dekha Jayega
Abhi To Peene Pelane Se Kaam Le Saki
Tere Hajur Mein Hosh-o-khird Se Kya Hasil
Nahi Hai Mye To Nigaho Se Kaam Le Saki

Face To Face



1. Be Sabab Bat Badhane Ki Zaroorat Kya Hai

Hum Khafa Kab The Manane Ki Zaroorat Kya Hai

Aap Ke Dam Se To Duniya Ka Bharam Hai Qayam
Aap Jab Hain To Zamane Ki Zaroorat Kya Hai

Tera Koocha, Tera Dar, Teri Gali Kafi Hai
Be-thikanon Ko Thikane Ki Zaroorat Kya Hai

Dil Se Milne Ki Tamanna Hi Nahin Jab Dil Mein
Hath Se Hath Milane Ki Zaroorat Kya Hai

Rang Aankhoon Ke Liye, Boo Hai Damaghoon Ke Liye
Fool Ko Haath Lagane Ki Zaroorat Kya Hai



2. Dair-o-haram Main Basne Walo
Mai Kharon Mein Photo Na Dalo

Toofan Se Hum Takraenge
Tum Apni Kashti Ko Sambhalo

Maikhane Mein Aaye Wayez
In Ko Bhi Insane Bano Lo

Aariz-o-lab Sada Rahne Do
Taj Mahal Pe Rang Na Dalo



3. Koi Mausam Aisa Aaey
Us Ko Apne Saath Jo Laaey

Logon Se Taareef Suni Hai
Us Se Mil Kar Dekha Jaaey

Aaj Bhi Par Bojh Bahut Hai
Aaj Bhi Shayad Neend Na Aaey

Hal Hai Dil Ka Jugnoo Jaisa
Jalta Jaiy Bujhta Jaaey

Beete Lamhey Kuchh Aise Hain
Khushboo Jaise Haat Na Aaey



4. Pyar Ka Pahala Khat Likhne Mein, Waqt To Lagta Hai
Naye Parindonko Udhne Mein Waqt To Lagta Hai

Jism Ki Baat Nahin Thi, Us Ke Dil Tak Jaana Tha
Lambi Doori Tai Karne Mein Waqt To Lagta Hai

Ganth Agar Lag Jaye To Phir Rishte Hon Ya Dori
Laakh Karen Koshish Khulne Mein Waqt To Lagta Hai

Hum Ne Ilaaj-e-zakam-e-dil To Dhoondh Liya Lekin
Gahre Zakhmon Ko Bharne Mein Waqt To Lagta Hai



5. Sachchi Baat Kahi Thi Maine
Logon Ne Sooli Pe Chadhaya
Mujh Ko Zahr Ka Jam Pilaya
Phir Bhi Un Ko Chain Na Aaya



Sachchi Baat Kahi Thi Maine
Le Ke Jahan Bhi, Waqt Gaya Hai
Zulm Mila Hai, Zulm Ssaha Hai
Sach Ka Ye Inaam Mila Hai

Sachchi Baat Kahi Thi Maine
Sab Se Behtar Kabhi Na Ban Na
Jag Ke Rahbar Kabhi Na Ban Na
Peer Payambar Kabhi Na Ban Na

Sachchi Baat Kahi Thi MaineChup Rah Kar Hi Waqt Guzaro


Sach Kahne pe Jaan Mat Waro
Kuch To Seekho Mujh Se Yaro


6. Sheikh-ji-thodi Si Pee Kar Aaiye
Mai Hai Kya Shai Phir Hamein Batlaieye

Aap Kyon Hain Sari Duniya Se Juda
Aap Bhi Dushman Merey Ban Jaaieye

Kya Hai Achcha Kya Bura Banda Nawaz
Aap Samjhen To Hamein Samjhaieye

Jane Dijey Aqal Baatein Janab
Dil Ki Suniye Aur Peete Jaieye



7. Tum Ne Badle Hum Se Gin Gin Ke Liye
Hum Ne Kya Chaha Tha Is Din Ke Liye

Wasi Ka Din Aur Itna Mukhtasar
Din Gine Jate The Is Din Ke Liye

Who Nahin Sunte Hamari Kay Karen
Mangte Hain Hum Dua Jin Ke Liye

Chahne Walon Se Gar Matlab Nahin
Aap Phir Paida Huey Kin Ke Liye

Baghban Kaliyan Hon Halke Rang Ki
Bhejani Hain Ek Kamsin Ke Liye



8. Jeeta Rahne Ki Saza De Zindagi Aey Zindagi
Ab To Marne Ki Dua De Zindagi Aey Zindagi

Main To Ab Ukta Gaya Hon Kya Yehi Hai Kayenaat
Bas Ye Aiyeena Hata De Zindagi Aey Zindagi

Dhoondne Nikla Ta Tujhko Aur Khud Ko Khodiya
Ti Hi Ab Mera Pata De Zindagi Aey Zindagi

Ya Mejhe Ahsaaas Ki Is Qaid Se Karde Riha
Warna Deewana Bana De Zindagi Aey Zindagi



9. Zindagi Tu Ne Lahoo Le Ke Diya Kuchh Bhi Nahin
Tere Daman Main Merey Waste Kya Kuchh Bhi Nahin

Merey In Hathon Ki Chaho Totalashi Le Lo
Merey Hathon Mein Lakeeron Ke Siwakuchh Bhi Nahin

Hum Ne Dekha Hai Kaee Aise Khudaonko Yahan
Samene Jin Ke Wo Sach Much Ka Khuda Kuchh Bhi Nahin

Ya Khuda Ab Ke Yeh Kis Rang Mein Aee Hai Bahar
Zard Hi Zard Hai Pedon Pe Hara Kuchh Bhi Nahin

Dil Bhi Ek Zid Pe Ada Hai Kisi Bachche Ki Tarah
Ya To Sab Kuchh Hi Isey Chahiye Ya Kuchh Bhi Nahin

O Naye Insaan, Lyrics, Meaning



O naye insaan, dharti pe aa
O naye insaan, dharti pe aa

Lohe Carbon silicon jo ban*
Taaron ke jamghat se Hard disk mein yaadein lekar
Avinashi tan leke, maanav sa mann leke
Ehsaas chhe, saatva tu de jaga
Zindagi badal de
O naye insaan, dharti pe aa


O new human, come on earth,
O new human, come on earth,

Made of Iron, Carbon, Silicon
Bringing memories from the collection of stars in a hard disk,
With a body that doesn't decay, and a heart like that of human,
there are six senses, you wake the seventh,
change (our) life,
O new human, come on earth,

Badlaav ke naye, Sapne leke aa
Dharti ka bhala, Karne ko tu bana
Sach ke raah par, Chalna kar shuru
Duniya hui hai ghum, Andhiyare tu hata


Bring the new dreams of change,
You're made to do good on earth,
Start walking the path of truth,
The world is lost, you remove the dark..

Yantara yantara yantara tu yantara
Yantara yantara yantara tu yantara
Mausam mausam chaar ritu
Mere liya bus ek ritu
Chaar zamaane jaanu main
Tu jaane zabaan meri
Rog na bhog hai koi tujhe
Pet zali na dil hi dukhe
Insaan jiye jab saans chale
Tu yunhi chalta chale


Machine, Machine, Machine, you Machine (Can say Robot too)
Machine, Machine, Machine, you Machine
weather by weather there are four weathers,
For me it's just one weather,
I know four eras,
You know my promise,
You have no disease or enjoyment,
Neither belly burns nor heart aches,
Human lives when breathing works,
You keep moving just like that..

Maati ka putla
Maati milega
Akl ke bete tujhe maut nahin milni
Yeh jo mera yantra hai, isski na maar
Yeh jo mera yantra hai, isse na marna
Main rachaita srushti ka
Tu meri srushti nahin
Mard ne mard ko paidha kiya
Yeh sab jise yantra kahe
O naye insaan, dharti pe aa


Effigy made of earth,
will mix in earth,
Son of mind, you will not get death,
This machine of mine doesn't have death
This machine of mine doesn't have to die
I'm the creator of the world,
You are not my creation
man made man,
which all these call Robot,
O new human, come on earth,

Kya meri bhasha hai
Vigyan ki abhilasha hai
Tune mujhko janam diya
Tera khwab mein poora karun
Mujhko mila hai ek janam
Tujhko mile kai lakh janam
Jo yaad rahenge lakh janam
O aise mere karam


What's my language,
It's desire of Science
You gave me birth,
I'll achieve your dreams,
I've got one life,
You've got many million lives,
What you remember for a million lives,
Such should be my deeds..

Robo robo na bhulunga kabhi
Hindi hai meri pitr bhasha
Robo robo main sevak hoon tera
Chahe ban jaun main iss jag ka raja


Robo robo, I'll never forget,
Hindi is my father tongue**
Robo, Robo, I'm your servant,
Even if I become the ruler of this world..

* = Not very clear, means something similar though I guess.
** = There is only mother tongue in both Hindi n English, this most probably depicts man made man more clearly.

Maula (Hide and Seek) Lyrics, Meaning



Raat Yeh, Koi Saaye Si
Chaandni Koi Sada
Raaz Woh Hawayen laati Hain
Aur Najar Hai Dhuan
Phir Raha Hoon Main Yahaan
Manzilein Hain Laapata
Kaisa Yeh Safar Hai, Kaisi Yeh Khalish Hai Maula
Kaisa Yeh Safar Hai, Maula


This night, like some shadow,
moonlight (like) someone calling
Winds bring a mystery
and sight is foggy
I'm roaming here
(my) destinations are lost
How is this journey, how's this emptiness O God,
What a journey this is, O God..

Rooh Bhi Sehmi Sehmi Si
Hausle Soye Kahaan
Zakhm Woh Behte Rehte Hain
Beasar Hai Dawa
Joojh Raha Hoon Main Yahaan
Ab Reham Ho Aye Khuda
Kaisa Yeh Safar Hai, Kaisi Yeh Khalish Hai Maula
Kaisa Yeh Safar Hai, Maula


Even the soul feels fear
morale isn't slept
Wounds keep flowing,
Medicines are ineffective,
I'm coping here
Now let there be mercy o God,
How is this journey, how's this emptiness O God,
What a journey this is, O God..

choosing drifting






a shantyboat community by the river's edge.  



After building their "shantyboat," out of mostly salvaged materials, 
Harlan and Anna set out on the river, 
drifting.




I had no theories to prove. 
I merely wanted to try living by my own hands, 
independent as far as possible from a system of division of labor 
in which the participant loses most of the pleasure 
of making and growing things for himself.  
I wanted to bring in my own fuel and smell its sweet smoke 
as it burned on the hearth I had made.  
I wanted to grow my own food, 
catch it in the river, or forage after it.  
In short, I wanted to do as much as I could for myself, 
because I had already realized from partial experience 
the inexpressible joy of so doing.

This is a windy day with a secret exhilaration about it. 
When I look at the rough water patched with cloud shadows, 
the boat pitching slightly in the wind waves -
 all this from a higher plane somewhere above these little affairs.  
Yet they are a part and lead into it. 

The pure delight of drifting.  
Each time, it was a thrill to shove out into the current, 
to feel the life and power of the river, 
whose beginning and end were so remote.  
We became a part of it, like the driftwood... 
The tension and excitement, the near ecstasy of drifting.  
We had to stop often and take it in small doses.

can you find your true identity?





.
.
How arbitrary, the ways in which we identify ourselves.
This fan chart used in genealogy helps demonstrate this fact.
10 generations here, taking us back only to the mid-1600's, 
and in that 10th generation, 512 equal contributors to 
my genetic inheritance.  I derive my identity, and even think of myself
as being related to maybe 2 of those.
That's about 2 tenths of one percent of the total genetic influence.
511 other surnames that could equally well apply.
.
How seriously we sometimes take ourselves.

Prayers for the Earth






.
.
For once on the face of the earth let's not speak in any language
Let's stop for one second and not move our arms so much.
It would be an exotic moment without rush, without engines.
We would all be together in a sudden strangeness.
Fisherman in the cold sea would not harm whales
...And the man gathering salt would look at his hurt hands.
Those who prepare green wars, wars with gas, wars with fire,
Victory with no survivors
Would put on clean clothes and walk about with their brothers in the shade doing nothing.
What I want should not be confused with total inactivity,
Life is what it is about.
I want no truck with death.
If we were not so single minded about keeping our lives moving,
And for once could do nothing,
Perhaps a huge silence might interrupt this sadness of never understanding ourselves
And of threatening ourselves with death.
Perhaps the earth can teach us when everything seems dead and later proves to be alive.
.
~ Pablo Neruda
