I sit at the edge

marvel

I sit at the edge of the dark
Where fears are heading eyes up
And wildness is swilling its cup
Yet gathering despair to mark
Empires of sadness and tears.
I sit at the edge of their bark.

I sit at the marge of the dark
Where magic of night covers sky
With beautiful stars, charming spark
And music of angels grows high
While dancing with light through the fears.
I sit at their edge stopping tears.

The shadows embrace me with love
Through darkness the stars glow so bright.
I sit and their silvered dove
Hope brings on my heart, faith and light.

The joy of Music – André Rieu

Nottingham , 16/12/2017

I had the great chance to attend  André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra’s concert  in Nottingham at  Motorpoint Arena on their recent and amazing tour in UK during this December.   Thanks to my lovely and caring friend, Carmen, who made these moments happened!

For 30 years, with soloists from all around the world, they have created  such amazing, emotional, beautiful, elegant spectacles, making the feeling of being in fairy tales. The joy of music makes their concerts so unique. Someone near to me said with tears in eyes: “They stole this music straight from the Heaven!” I could not agree more than this. Their music brought emotions and happiness in my heart and tears dropped while soul has been touched by their music’s grace.

I managed to record some moments. Not many as we were under the magical effect.  At a  point we embraced together and were feeling the sound of the happiness dancing a universal waltz. A waltz which took us to the Heaven.  The real magic was happening!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Quest

 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne  Williamson

The road is smooth

I found them as their music had crossed through the buildings, and as I live just few steps behind the Market Square, the little strange tune for a quiet Sunday just fired up my curiosity.

My surprise has been even bigger, as long time did not see a fanfare singing live. While somebody was spreading to the world the Words of God.  I did not figure out what exactly the religious group of Christians they are.    I salute their great initiative and interesting way of preaching.  I salute their kindness to bring  us some rays from the infinitely  Love of God. 

In a World who suffers too much from the lack of love, from many  misunderstandings, from too much ignorance, too much anger and frustration,  from too many abuses, from too much judging,  well, in this World we need to bring up the Spirituality.  We need to move into the flow of bliss, with a feeling of harmony, trust, gratitude and love.  

Everything has been given to us for our path. An ancient quote says: “The road is smooth. Why do you throw rocks before you?”  And I have been one of who did that. Obviously is very hard to walk  on the rocks…  It took me years to understand something very easy. It took me many years because even if the mind understands it well, the heart should be convinced too. Convinced to make the space for a peaceful, more joyful, more beautiful life. 

The beginning of the  journey to a more abundant life starts from our inside, starts from our being, right where we are. Rising above the clouds. 

 

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 

“Even  Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God.” – Guru Nanak

My Dear Spring

My Dear Spring, on this night
I kindly ask you save for me a dance.
A dance of hope, of lights or might
Switch them on in thousands ways of chance
***
 
My Dear Spring, please  listen to the wind.
It has blown-up the wishes from my heart.
I run my race through space but I was finding
Eventually I felt from stars apart.
***
 
My Dear Spring, in this night
I kindly ask you save for me a dance.
And let the music fall in love so blind
With my hope eyes, with my soul glance.
