I can't begin to comprehend your loss. I am terribly sorry to hear of it. I've lost my mother, three grandparents, and a number of dear friends over the years but nothing to commpare to what you are going through now. The Lord already holds your daughter, so my prayers are with you, the one left behind. Now on the other subject that's reared its ugly head, nearly every decent definition I've heard of folk music mentions the condition of the human spirit, the sharing of something dear, the celebrating of our joys and easing of our pain, the love of our family, friends and heritage. On any level this thread is folk music. It's why we have folk music. "It's a dirge that is murmered around the lowly grave, Oh Hard Times Come Again No More." Regardless, I have seen people I absolutely despised pass on, and I wouldn't tell their grieving families,or give them other cause to suffer any more than they already are. That's petty, disgusting, immoral, and just plain wrong. I'll pray for you too. Getting back to the matter at hand , My heart and prayers go out to you, Metchosin, and I'm sorry you had to put up with this. Love, Rich

AS LONG AS NO Stalin breathes down our necks, why not make some art in the service of...an insurrection? Never mind if it's "impossible." What else can we hope to attain but the "impossible"? Should we wait for someone else to reveal our true desires?

If music has died, or the audience has withered away, then we find ourselves free of two dead weights. Potentially, everyone is now some kind of artist--& potentially every audience has regained its innocence, its ability to become the art that it experiences.

Provided we can escape from the museums we carry around inside us, provided we can stop selling ourselves tickets to the galleries in our own skulls, we can begin to contemplate an art which re-creates the goal of the sorcerer: changing the structure of reality by the manipulation of living symbols (in this case, the images we've been "given" by the organizers of this salon--murder, war, famine, & greed).

We might now contemplate aesthetic actions which possess some of the resonance of terrorism (or "cruelty," as Artaud put it) aimed at the destruction of abstractions rather than people, at liberation rather than power, pleasure rather than profit, joy rather than fear. "Poetic Terrorism." Our chosen images have the potency of darkness--but all images are masks, & behind these masks lie energies we can turn toward light & pleasure.

For example, the man who invented aikido was a samurai who became a pacifist & refused to fight for Japanese imperialism. He became a hermit, lived on a mountain sitting under a tree..

One day a former fellow-officer came to visit him & accused him of betrayal, cowardice, etc. The hermit said nothing, but kept on sitting--& the officer fell into a rage, drew his sword, & struck. Spontaneously the unarmed master disarmed the officer & returned his sword. Again & again the officer tried to kill, using every subtle kata in his repertoire--but out of his empty mind the hermit each time invented a new way to disarm him.

The officer of course became his first disciple. Later, they learned how to dodge bullets. We might contemplate some form of metadrama meant to capture a taste of this performance, which gave rise to a wholly new art, a totally non-violent way of fighting--war without murder, "the sword of life" rather than death.

A conspiracy of musicains, anonymous as any mad bombers, but aimed toward an act of gratuitous generosity rather than violence--at the millennium rather than the apocalypse--or rather, aimed at a present moment of aesthetic shock in the service of realization & liberation.

Music tells gorgeous lies that come true.

Is it possible to create a SECRET THEATER in which both musician & audience have completely disappeared--only to re-appear on another plane, where life & art have become the same thing, the pure giving of gifts?

THE Manachees and Carthars believed that the body can be spiritualized--or rather, that the body merely contaminates pure spirit & must be utterly rejected. The Gnostic perfecti (radical dualists) starved themselves to death to escape the body & return to the pleroma of pure light. So: to evade the evils of the flesh--murder, war, famine, greed--paradoxically only one path remains: murder of one's own body, war on the flesh, famine unto death, greed for salvation.

The radical monists however (Ismailis, Ranters, Antinomians) consider that body & spirit are one, that the same spirit which pervades a black stone also infuses the flesh with its light; that all lives & all is life.

"Things are what they are spontaneously...everything is natural...all in motion as if there were a True Lord to move them--but if we seek for evidence of this lord we fail to find any." (Kuo Hsiang)

Paradoxically, the monist path also cannot be followed without some sort of "murder, war, famine, greed": the transformation of death into life (food, negentropy)--war against the Empire of Lies--"fasting of the soul," or renunciation of the Lie, of all that is not life--& greed for life itself, the absolute power of desire.

Even more: without knowledge of the darkness ("carnal knowledge") there can exist no knowledge of the light ("gnosis"). The two knowledges are not merely complementary: say rather identical, like the same note played in different octaves. Heraclitus claims that reality persists in a state of "war." Only clashing notes can make harmony. ("Chaos is the sum of all orders.") Give each of these four terms a different mask of language (to call the Furies "The Kindly Ones" is not mere euphemism but a way of uncovering yet more meaning). Masked, ritualized, realized as art, the terms take on their dark beauty, their "Black Light."

Instead of murder say the hunt, the pure paleolithic economy of all archaic and non-authoritarian tribal society--"venery," both the killing & eating of flesh & the way of Venus, of desire. Instead of war say insurrection, not the revolution of classes & powers but of the eternal rebel, the dark one who uncovers light. Instead of greed say yearning, unconquerable desire, mad love. And then instead of famine, which is a kind of mutilation, speak of wholeness, plenty, superabundance, generosity of the self which spirals outward toward the Other.

Without this music of masks, nothing will be created. The oldest mythology makes Eros the firstborn of Chaos. Eros, the wild one who tames, is the door through which the artist returns to Chaos, the One, and then re-returns, comes back again, bearing one of the patterns of beauty. The artist, the hunter, the warrior: one who is both passionate and balanced, both greedy & altruistic to the utmost extreme. We must be saved from all salvations which save us from ourselves, from our animal which is also our anima, our very lifeforce, as well as our animus, our animating self-empowerment, which may even manifest as anger & greed. BABYLON has told us that our flesh is filth--with this device & the promise of salvation it enslaved us. But--if the flesh is already "saved," already light--if even consciousness itself is a kind of flesh, a palpable & simultaneous living aether--then we need no power to intercede for us. The wilderness, as Omar says, is paradise even now.

The true proprietorship of murder lies with the Empire, for only freedom is complete life. War is Babylonian as well--no free person will die for another's aggrandizement. Famine comes into existence only with the civilization of the saviors, the priest-kings--wasn't it Joseph who taught Pharaoh to speculate in grain futures? Greed--for land, for symbolic wealth, for power to deform others' souls & bodies for their own salvation--greed too arises not from "Nature nature-ing," but from the damming up & canalization of all energies for the Empire's Glory. Against all this, the artist possesses the dance of masks, the total radicalization of language, the invention of a "Poetic Terrorism" which will strike not at living beings but at malign ideas, dead-weights on the coffin-lid of our desires. The architecture of suffocation and paralysis will be blown up. only by our total celebration of everything-- even darkness.

I am a hardened veteran witness of death and injury. For twenty five years the member of a scientific institute. I work with doctors and scientists on several projects. I have seen and heard of things that are beyond the scope and language of science, and defy logical explanation. Recently I had to perform CPR on an elderly man, I heard his heart stop twice. Clinically he was dead, and I had increasing difficulty getting air into him. When the paramedics arrived they shocked him six times; after transporting him to hospital this man had some more heart attacks. The doctors call him the miracle man, no brain damage at all. He just celebrated his 47th wedding anniversary with his wife. While I was doing CPR the children on the street (9 in total) and all the neighbours, Moslem and Christian and Jew prayed for him outside the house on their knees. Do not tell me that the power of human spirit is meaningless, because in my experience this man would have been given up on by conventional wisdom. The power of human compassion and spirit is beyond our comprehension. The nasty mean spirited people who post negativity on these threads do nothing to benefit themselves or others; and as such deserve no regard as human beings. You are cowards of the worst kind; and a total waste of space. Yours, (in disgust) Aye. Dave

I would like you to know, however, that I'm feeling a little of your pain. It hurts and brings tears just think of losing my children. I hope in time it hurts less. I'm thinking of you.

To all those who have responded compassionately on this thread, I am deeply grateful. It is very difficult to stand by impotently and witness people for whom you care, try to cope with, possibly, the greatest pain we humans can be subjected to, without feeling the need to do something, anything that may be of comfort. Whether a healing circle on an internet thread, on a beam of energy generated by the hubris of man is of any benefit, I cannot say, it is beyond my ken. However, I do believe that an outpouring from ones soul, be it in a political folksong, with a hope to educate, a blues riff, that recalls mans inhumanity to man, through the bellow of a sinus clearing shanty, that stirs the imagination and recalls, other hardships of other times, through the music of our ancestors, on whom our unique characters and cultures are based or any song, for that matter, which brings goosebumps to the skin, a smile to a face, a tear to an eye and makes us think or through words of sympathy from people who make and love the music, on thread in the Mudcat Forum, is a life affirming act. In any case it has been a help to me. Thank you again.

Profane, vile, pussilanimous postings defile the energy of the healing spirit. If for no other reason, this is reason enough, to keep the sacred power within the hands of those practictioners that can/will contribute to holiness of the process and not permit it to be sullied by the irreverance of a public forum. For the sake of those who are afflicted, and those who are most vulnerable in their time of need, can't we PLEASE bring this into a private circle of healing. The swine's impurity has disgraced and degragated the alter of our worship and the spirit of our healing.

A neat little clicky thing saying "gargoyle" every now and then in non-music threads, indicating he (has to be "he") has something to say. If you're that way inclined, click on it and go off to join him and exchange pleasantries and deep insights on another dedicated gargoyle thread. Wouldn't it be a good arrangement? Wouldn't it make sense? Wouldn't it be sane and healthy?

But I can't see it happening. If it doesn't,the last sentence in the previous paragraph indicates the reason why. There is definitely something radically disturbed there, and at least posting on the Mudcat is less harmful than others things he might be doing.

But what we've seen on this thread - I hope it didn't cause too much real hurt to anyone, and I think it might have, which I supppose was the idea. As the nuns used to say "offer it up".

But for God's sake, or whatever equivalent gargoyle has, if he wants to respond to this, do it on another thread, please.

That is exactly what he wants, and you are right about the general strategy, Sorcha -- he's been around a while, occasionally contributes, is nice for awhile, and then goes off the deep end into this dreck. We just lay off. Every once in awhile it just gets too much, it has to be challenged: also we want to make sure that if anyone who belongs to the families involved should read this that they don't think this is normal. It is probably a mistake to reply: but.....

As I have said before, this gargoyle nonsense is just bad Nietszche -- "pity for people is for weaklings and will undermine and infect our moral fibre: what is required is the Superman who is above all this whining: we must be hard". It is totally pathetic, a sort of world view an insecure 12 year old would espouse, not to mention failed Austrian painters after World War One. It is worth paying attention to, just to constantly remind us of what pure anti-compassion looks like, how enraged it becomes at the slightest sign of love, how it tries to provoke the very anger it has in its own heart, so as to prove that the world is a violent, vicious place, so its darkest fears will be proved right after all. While it is disgusting to watch it in action, we need to see it every once in awhile, just to ensure that it never gets any power over us again.

There was no agreement to keep healing circles private: I did not speak for anyone else here, but I refused to keep my expressions of compassion and hope out of here. Everyone else's expressions speak the same determination. In the immortal words of Sorcha, go suck a rock. If you can't stand the compassion, get out of the kitchen.

Sorcha, I've been here all the time and am "up for this" I have already started work and am aware of the "bad feeling" of some all I would say is when you point a finger 3 more are pointing back at you, and karma also accumulates from the thought as well as the action so be careful of wishing ill, and heaping spite on others. and Anonymous posting is no protection from the Morae.

I have found this lovely celtic blessing for peace and would like to offer it. It is not a blessing for the bereaved, but it is beautiful and may help with the torment felt inside:

Deep peace I breathe into you, O weariness, here: O ache here! Deep peace, a soft white dove to you; Deep peace, a quiet rain to you; Deep peace, an ebbing wave to you! Deep peace, red wind of the east from you; Deep peace, grey wind of the west to you; Deep peace, dark wind of the north from you; Deep peace, blue wind of the south to you! Deep peace, pure red of the flame to you; Deep peace, pure white of the moon to you; Deep peace, pure green of the grass to you; Deep peace, pure brown of the earth to you; Deep peace, pure grey of the dew to you; Deep peace, pure blue of the sky to you! Deep peace of the running wave to you, Deep peace of the flowing air to you, Deep peace of the quiet earth to you, Deep peace of the sleeping stones to you, Deep peace of the Yellow Shepherd to you, Deep peace of the wandering shepherdess to you, Deep peace of the flock of stars to you, Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you, Deep peace from the heart of Mary to you, And from Bridget of the Mantle, Deep peace, deep peace!

(Fiona MacLeod "Under the Dark Star" pub. 1912 by William Heinemann).

Well said, BSeed!

If only I had looked into the thread yesterday, and seen this cry for healing, I could have had hands laid on for this poor mother at a service in our parish in the evening.

If one loses karma by trying to comfort the grieving, then karma is not worth having. Somehow, however, I suspect that as one giveth, so shall he receive: Either way, my thoughts are with this grieving family; I will pray for them, after my fashion. I also offer love to the unloved--and unloving.

Just joining in to offer my sympathies. We lost our oldest niece, the mother of a 5 year-old daughter, about 18 months ago. Prayer and moral support does help. There is a certain order in life: parents pre-decease their children. It is often hard for the human mind to accept that it can happen the other way round.

May God bless and keep the mother, the whole family, and all their friends also at this time.

Don't sweat it Mets......kat is used to taking the heat and a lot of us could give less than a mini's peter about what is said by some anyway. I have been tied up all day and when I got on this afternoon for a few minutes, it was with the purpose of starting this thread...but I'd been beat to the punch by my great friend. She did a great job too...better than I would have done.

So pass along the best of us to your friend in need and we will keep her and her family...and you...in our thoughts. Your post yesterday touched me deeply. Keep singing.

Spaw
