May All Your Lives Incessantly Flower Excitation

Be like the flower, turn your faces to the sun. ~Kahlil Gibran

My mind often wanders to a place where there is no more systematic enslavement of life in our world. It could be that I am imagining some era long gone by, a Golden Age when humanity was able to flourish. Or perhaps these are visions of a future reality. MayBee the seeds have already been planted on this planet, planned in advance, and now is the time when we see this amazing world come to fruition.

The men of experiment are like the ant; they only collect and use. But the bee . . . gathers its materials from the flowers of the garden and of the field, but transforms and digests it by a power of its own. ~ Leonardo da Vinci

The flower above is a recent artifact of my alchemical endeavors, given as a gilded gift. One of the reasons I enjoy painting so much is that it inspires others to also develop their talents. Viewing our world with an artist’s eyes allows a person to see colors, shapes, textures, lines, curves, and angles in a much different light. Visual surrounding are connected in ways hitherto unseen. Sometimes it becomes apparent to me that some of the best composition comes from organic composting.

Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

The flower is the poetry of reproduction.  It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life. ~Jean Giraudoux

A flower’s fragrance declares to all the world that it is fertile, available, and desirable, its sex organs oozing with nectar.  Its smell reminds us in vestigial ways of fertility, vigor, life-force, all the optimism, expectancy, and passionate bloom of youth.  We inhale its ardent aroma and, no matter what our ages, we feel young and nubile in a world aflame with desire. ~Diane Ackerman

Do we keep the fruits of our labors? Do they get bruised and (b)eaten? Are they a product of love? Or just produce?

Every child is born a naturalist. His eyes are, by nature, open to the glories of the stars, the beauty of the flowers, and the mystery of life. ~R. Search

He who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth is generally considered a fortunate person, but his good fortune is small compared to that of the happy mortal who enters this world with a passion for flowers in his soul. ~Celia Thaxter

All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today. ~Indian Proverb

I was on air for a surprise Sunday night show. Listen here:

Talk About Stirring Up Nature

Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
The world of the flower, the whole of
the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth
of the blossom:
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.
~Zenkei Shibayama

    This post just triggered a memory of a visit to a Museum exhibition in the early 90’s to view the paintings of Georgia O’Keefe. I remember jokingly calling her O’Queef after that due to the way her work captured the metaphoric essence of a flower’s resemblance to that of the female genitalia. Just thought I’d share that.. .
    P.S.:
    Flower..>..Flow-er..>..’her-flow’…Hmmm.

    I’m glad to hear a podcast without ads again 😉 If you want to, you can write me an e-mail, I don’t use online banking and Paypal at all (ever), but maybe we can work something out?!

    Listening to you and following your blog has brought me closer to myself. I don’t want to sound like a groupie but your thoughts inspire me and I really feel honored when you post a link to my blog or even talk about it on one of your shows. I’m not screaming and passing out when I hear you, but consider me a fan! The things you are doing here DO make a difference, and I’m sure not only for me! And by breaking down language, you help me to get behind it every day a little more. At the moment, I’m interested in old high German and it seems the “indo-germanic” theory of languages must be reconsidered. I am up to now convinced that the Irish and the Arians (how close the sound is when you say these words!) are of the same origin. Also the Iranians, as I have found out. Germans and Iranians are related. It’s been thousands of years, of course, but finding out about all of this gives me hope for the future.

    Some authors even say it was Germanic tribes who went to palestine and started to settle there. Hebrew is another form of old high German, allegedly. At the time when these guys came to the desert, something must have gone wrong with them (trauma) and they developed that culture that mutilates little boys. For some reason, other tribes in other regions of the world didn’t do that. And the guys who started it developed (de-generated?) alone, while the other tribes were doing other stuff (building stone circles and pyramidal structures – there are some old “Keltenschanzen” even here near where I live, I don’t know, earthworks, artificial “hills”, structures from the Celtic people that used to live in the middle of Europe once upon a time as well. But that’s only the name, maybe it was a totally different tribe, we can’t figure it out anmyore. Some totally NOT mainstream authors, one even from a town near my village, have found out these structures are manipulating the weather where still intact. There’s this village in Bavaria that has such a thing and it NEVER is hit by thunderstorms and hail, when the area around it is. It’s based on what Wilhelm Reich has found out, underneath the structures there are water canals – these Celts knew what they were doing, and when in such a thing a dead body of an alleged king is found, I say it was from a later period of time when mankind already had forgotten what these things were used for, and put their dead in them.)

    I would have suggestion for your oracle show: can you try to bring back the guest you were talking to when you were at blogtalk only, it’s not been long ago, it was about circumscision. He had a degree in massage therapy or something, and a method to stretch the foreskin, he massaged his thighs one time and everything got better, do you remember? He needs to be heard by more people. Maybe he can call in, or you even have him as a co-host. We can’t just address the j. issue and offer no solutions to people who’s parents have fallen for it. I’m totally convinced there’s a lot of juice out there who feels uncomfortable. And also non-juice who is in that situation of being circumscised and wants to find out more about it, and that they are not alone with their problems.

    Anyways, I felt the need to tell you this!

      Thanks for all your massive comments. I really do appreciate, Alex. As for the donations, don’t worry about it. Maybe you can call into the show sometime? I will try to locate Hpnstnc to do another show at some point, but I have a number of guests already lined up in the near future.
