In the blood of Eden
So we the end as we began
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Yes, I think Emmanuel's performance is more correctly a medley. He's a brilliant musician and had his hayday in Australia about fifteen years ago and has since slipped back into obscurity. I haven't even heard of him doing the pub circuit.

Speaking of medleys...



Ahh...beautiful!

Hi,

I enjoy Murcof's music recently:

Bhagavaṃmūlakā no, bhante, dhammā...

Thanks, Piotr. That's really good!

This song is very popular at the moment, and I think it's also pretty good.

Let it come. Let it be. Let it go.

He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Pretty incredible music, guys! Thanks!

There are actually 2 songs on this video: Both are from an old album i use to have called Poems and Songs from Middle Earth. I remember back in the summer of 1970 when i read Tolkein's books. Ahhh....

I think the first song is the Ents' song. The second one: "In Western Lands" comes at the part of the book where Sam thinks Frodo has been killed. He is hopeless, but sings this.
In western lands beneath the Sun the flowers may rise in Spring,
the trees may bud, the waters run, the merry finches sing.
Or there maybe 'tis cloudless night and swaying beeches bear
the Elven-stars as jewels white amid their branching hair.
Though here at journey's end I lie in darkness buried deep,
beyond all towers strong and high, beyond all mountains steep,
above all shadows rides the sun and stars forever dwell
I will not say the day is done nor bid the stars farewell.


For years now this is one of the songs i sing when i am down. Unfortunately, though i was never a great singer, my voice has really gone kaput with the illnesses. Nice to listen to this again though i would be surprised if anyone else likes it :)

I have heard Suzanne Ciani's "Velocity of Love" before and really liked it, but hadn't heard anything else by her till today. When i heard this song, "When Love Dies" it brought tears to my eyes. I will include Velocity of Love too because it is more uplifting!
