Pain and “The great gig in the sky”
(The Yin and Yang of pain — the two sides of the moon)
Longing for the new world order dominated by the mother nature of Feminity —
from Yang to Yin, Logos to Pathos, Brain to Heart, Reason to Insight !.
1. Prelude according to Pink Floyd
“And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do,
I don’t mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There’s no reason for it, you’ve gotta go sometime.
If you can hear this whispering, you are dying.”
“I never said I was frightened of dying.”
2. Interlude according to a TCM thinker in Vancouver
Hats off to the greatness of feminity –
the moon in us,
the mother Earth,
which begets the beings on earth
with the primordial pain of birth
with the primordial orgasm of birth !
(from an ancient book of east called “Tao Te Ching “(The Book of “Tao” (Tao meaning “way”, some 3,000 years old book)
- The Valley Spirit never dies
- It is named the Mysterious Female.
- And the doorway of the Mysterious Female
- Is the base from which Heaven and Earth sprang.
- It is there within us all the while;
- Draw upon it as you will, it never runs dry. (chap. 6, tr. Waley)
Israel and Iran,
After all, you are all from one same grandfather – “Abraham or Ibrahim”.
You are now the two towers all the world is watching.
Is this what you want ?
The beings on this precious earth
All we “are”,
Where “are” you from ?
“Let the sunshine in”
When we wake up tomorrow morning, in the dawning age of Aquarius !
When the tilted polar axis of 23.5 degree returns to straight vertical,
When the tilted axis of our heart resumes straight in the median of our body !
When the conflicts on this earth give way to the spirit of purifying Aquarius !
(By the way, what are Diane Sawyer, Barbra Streisand (pregnant ?) & Whoopi Goldberg doing with bunch of hippies ?)
(Above Youtube video was blocked suddenly by the request of ABC News. Why ?, What are they afraid of ?)
(Open your mind ! and Let the sunshine in !)
(A Socrates roaming the streets of San Francisco without purpose)
(Dreamers in sunny California)
(Oh, Lord!, When will I ever be in sunny California from this damp rainy Vancouver ?)
Gute nacht !
Bonne nuit !
Oyasumi nasai !
Wan An !
Jal Ja Se Yo !
تصبح على خير !
Are we dreaming a dream or the dream is dreaming us ?
(about 2,500 years ago in China, there was a thinker named Zhunag zi who had a dream one day )
“Zhuang zi dreamed he was a butterfly”
Once Zhuangzi dreamt he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn’t know he was Zhuangzi. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Zhuangzi. But he didn’t know if he was Zhuangzi who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Zhuangzi. Between Zhuangzi and a butterfly there must be some distinction! This is called the Transformation of Things. (2, tr. Burton Watson 1968:49)
