    If there is nothing in a bottle what do I have?

    A bottle.

    Quote Is there anybody in there?






    Quote When I was a child
    I caught a fleeting glimpse
    Out of the corner of my eye
    I turned to look but it was gone
    I cannot put my finger on it now
    The child is grown
    The dream is gone
    I have become comfortably numb

    Seeing and sight have more in common then the sighted will admit.
    This post of O Donna's, and the images, reminded me of a poem I wrote about something I experienced. To do with seeing and being seen. I wrote it to relay it as it happened.


    Invisible
    (the true story of the girl on the beach)



    It was the end of a long day
    spent wandering alone,
    amidst the jostling crowds
    and busy mouths that shift
    beneath the scorching
    muscle of the Sydney sun.

    I sat down by the beach
    to finish my read,
    comfortably drowsy in the heat.
    The nearest body
    fifteen or twenty metres away,
    I zoned in on my book.

    As I buried my head in its final page
    I thought to myself a quiet thought,
    ‘It’s been a good day I think,
    but a lonely one.
    I feel like I’m invisible.’


    A moment later I felt a stare
    drift over the thoughts
    and layers in the print.
    I laid it down upon my lap,
    looked up and there she was.

    A blonde little girl,
    no more than two or three feet tall.

    She smiled at me as if to say
    ‘Finally, you’ve noticed me.’
    Then with a gentle tilt of her head
    “You’re not invisible” she said.
    “I can see you.”
    She continued to stare.
    “I can see you from
    all the way over there…
    Look...” she said,

    and with that she ran back
    to the edge of the shore,
    to where she’d played,
    twenty meters away,
    or maybe more,
    and once sat down
    amongst her friends
    she beamed with a smile…

    and from there,

    she waved.




    How to convey how it made me feel... (?) A calm joy reached into my heart in the space of an instant. Making me smile from the inside out. A deep warmth rippled in the space between us. Connecting to something, to someone, with such purity. Life is sometimes purest in its simplest moments. And in a way (on some days) what can be more simple than the need to feel seen, and the willingness in another to be the one who sees?

    Children can be so magnificent in their gentle hearts and their honesty.

    I love the feeling to this :

    A Message to Humankind from the Wisdom Weavers of the World
    Published on 16 Nov 2018

    Part of the youtube description:

    “Inspired by the vision of Alaskan Unangan traditional and environmental leader, Ilarion (Kuuyux) Merculieff, invitations were sent out to gather Elders from the four directions to sit in council and hold ceremonies for the purpose of deep listening to the wisdom streams that were ready to be shared.”

    Read more at the link...





    Some quotes from the video :


    “We are the ones we've been waiting for, and what we know is that
    the key to this mystery is simply to drop into your heart”





    “I will meet you there, and we're gonna heal the earth.
    We're gonna heal our people.
    We're gonna heal ourselves and everything around us”





    “Remember who you are, live your traditional wisdom.
    We need you. The earth needs you. Now”




    “If we focus on what we dream this world to be, that will become the reality”

    Was sifting through some old photos recently and came across some that I took through the window of a plane during a flight. I got lucky with an ocean of cloud that makes the view look like a snow scene. But somehow otherworldly. The sky world.











    And...

    P.S. I just realised this post was a fairly literal interpretation of the thread title. Not intentional. But gave me a giggle

    And I notice Wind has made it to 7000 posts. Congratulations (I think.) And thank you Wind, for contributing so much of value.

    On behalf of Avalonians everywhere, The Guild of Wise Gnomes would like to present you with this commemorative plaque, in gratitude for your commitment :

    Who Am I?

    No such thing.


    (and so happens to be found within lyric form)



    Quote Lyrics
    "Welcome to the real world", she said to me
    Condescendingly
    Take a seat
    Take your life
    Plot it out in black and white
    Well I never lived the dreams of the prom kings
    And the drama queens
    I'd like to think the best of me
    Is still hiding
    Up my sleeve
    They love to tell you
    Stay inside the lines
    But something's better
    On the other side
    I want to run through the halls of my high school
    I want to scream at the
    Top of my lungs
    I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
    Just a lie you've got to rise above
    So the good boys and girls take the so called right track
    Faded white hats
    Grabbing credits and
    Maybe transfers
    They read all the books but they can't find the answers
    And all of our parents
    They're getting older
    I wonder if they've wished for anything better
    While in their memories
    Tiny tragedies
    They love to tell you
    Stay inside the lines
    But something's better
    On the other side
    I want to run through the halls of my high school
    I want to scream at the
    Top of my lungs
    I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
    Just a lie you've got to rise above
    I am invincible
    I am invincible
    I am invincible
    As long as I'm alive
    I want to run through the halls of my high school
    I want to scream at the
    Top of my lungs
    I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
    Just a lie you've got to rise above
    I just can't wait til my ten year reunion
    I'm gonna bust down the double doors
    And when I stand on these tables before you
    You will know what all this time was for

    Crop Circles Theme - Marcus Viana
    I am fascinated with the "Crop Circles" and its mysterious code to be deciphered by us. The Sacred Geometry present in every artistic and scientific achievement of Humanity is there, drawn from the heights by "somebody" using some kind of laser that does not incinerate, only carves in the fields of mature cereals, ready for the harvest ... It´s pure music! they appear from the night to the day attracting crowds of scholars who try to decipher the riddle of their symbols ... I used here virtual synthesizers and electric violins in the creation of this theme with a technologic air, to accompany these images harvested all over the world.



    Its an art work just beautiful--made by who?
