Stars of the Ancients

The other night
In a dream
I looked up to the night's sky.
There was no light pollution
And I celebrated that at last
I could see clearly
All of the night sky.
Instead of the stars
And constellations
Appearing flat
On a darkened sky,
They descended toward me,
Surrounded me,
I, who had my feet
firmly planted
Upon the ground.
They floated around me
As I gazed at them in awe.
I felt such a sense
Of excitement
And thought to myself,
"This is how the Ancients
Once saw the nighttime sky!"

Kore Kosmou - Audio Book

Tonight I recorded an audio book version of Kore Kosmou - The Virgin of the Kosmos. Keep in mind that all recordings I make are 100% homemade and there is no editing, so there are occasional background noises, mispronunciations, mess-ups, cracking noises due to microphone quality, etc. It's just for fun, learning and spiritual and philosophical exploration. I figure it would give you something to listen to in your car on the way to work, or on your mp3 player as you take a walk.

Feel free to distribute this any way you like, except for commercial purposes. No credit has to be given. Just share.

Mp3 can be found here: http://www.garageband.com/mp3/Kore_Kosmou___The_Virgin_of_the_Kosmos.mp3?|pe1|WdjZPXLrvP2rYVS2ZGBlBQ

It is 59.5 MB. It's about one hour and five minutes long.

Symbolic Communication

"Suppose we were trying to establish and improve communication with a species of being so remote from our own that they were totally unable to grasp our existence or relationship with them. We may imagine perhaps that we are trying to make intelligent contact with our own blood-cells. All we could do, would be to use symbol-units from their field of being which had something in common with ours and attempt to construct an intelligible language out of these. At first, such symbols would be very basic and primitive, but as time went on and developments of evolution took place, communication would improve and become more sophisticated and facile. Exactly this problem exists between the Greater Consciousness and our own."

From The Ladder of Lights, by William G. Gray. So far, it is an excellent book!

Without a Face

In front of the Sun
By the rays

Right Here. Right Now.

Holiday? Every day is holy.
Holy water? Every drop of rain, of every puddle, pond, lake, river or sea is holy.
Places of worship? Every place is holy.
