Poetry

Tranen verdrogen in het spoor van de rimpels
Huilen verstomt in het geluid van de wind
Woede blijft achter de muur van verlangen
Passie van de woorden verschijnt in zicht

De ondergesneeuwde missie wacht onder de berg van gevoelens
Door de tijd heen reist mijn wil om haar niet te onderschatten
Zich een weg banend naar de top zal zij zich openbaren
Opdat ook ik mijzelf een eerlijke kans geef in dit leven

-Farideh-
2006

Tears dried up in the wake of the wrinkles
Crying is silenced in the sound of the wind
Anger stays behind the wall of desire
Passion of the words appears in sight

The snow-covered mission awaits beneath the mountain of feelings
My will travels through time not to underestimate her
Making her way to the top she will reveal herself
So that I too give myself a fair chance in this life

Class 1B

A few months back I discovered a notebook with a few essays I wrote when being 13 years old which was all an assignment of the class “Dutch”. They are all interesting to read though one of them, is one hell of a mind thrilling story. Unbelievable real and I must say it is a waterfall of dreams and hopes and my imagination goes wild at age 13. It is pouring with all of my emotions which have been inside of me my entire life. Sometimes I am spooked and touched by my own presence and expressions.. my imagination and dreams are keeping me alive. With pink glasses of courses. As the pink world a la Farideh is much better than the real world. Feeling so much love for that 13 year old me..

Full moon baby

Yesterday evening I was talking to a friend of mine who received an astrology reading session as that is written with the knowledge of her date of birth and time of birth.
I told her that would not be possible for me to receive a detailed astrology reading as I do not own that knowledge about the time of birth.
Since a few years I do know that my date of birth is at the 19th of December. Yesterday I looked up the phases of the moon in that year… 18th of December it was full moon that month. Interesting fact! Honoring Grandmother Moon for her protection and healing powers. Honoring my Birth Mother for giving birth to me during full moon.

NYC

Amsterdam, 13 September 2001

NYC 

You can rebuild buildings
but you can not rebuild
the lives of all the people
who were inside that moment
they’ve suffered until the end
their loved ones will suffer from now on

New York City will never be the same
the skyline is different
the atmosphere has changed
and the memory remains

Tears are falling down
the world is crying
will the rain ever stop

A moment of silence
out of respect
to all victims

A soul connection

A soul connection

the heart tells all

do we keep missing the signs
the universe is telling us

or are we only chosen
by past lives
to feel
this way about each other

And is the present
only a memory
from past time

I wonder
I feel

Love

The Prologue to Bertrand Russell’s Autobiography

What I have lived for

Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. These passions, like great winds, have blown me hither and thither, in a wayward course, over a great ocean of anguish, reaching to the very verge of despair.

I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy – ecstasy so great that I would often have sacrificed all the rest of life for a few hours of this joy. I have sought it, next, because it relieves loneliness–that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness looks over the rim of the world into the cold unfathomable lifeless abyss. I have sought it finally, because in the union of love I have seen, in a mystic miniature, the prefiguring vision of the heaven that saints and poets have imagined. This is what I sought, and though it might seem too good for human life, this is what–at last–I have found.

With equal passion I have sought knowledge. I have wished to understand the hearts of men. I have wished to know why the stars shine. And I have tried to apprehend the Pythagorean power by which number holds sway above the flux. A little of this, but not much, I have achieved.

Love and knowledge, so far as they were possible, led upward toward the heavens. But always pity brought me back to earth. Echoes of cries of pain reverberate in my heart. Children in famine, victims tortured by oppressors, helpless old people a burden to their sons, and the whole world of loneliness, poverty, and pain make a mockery of what human life should be. I long to alleviate this evil, but I cannot, and I too suffer.

This has been my life. I have found it worth living, and would gladly live it again if the chance were offered me.

-Bertrand Russell-

Sacred Songs by Sonja

by Sonja Dekker, my dear friend and mentor to meditation and shamanism.

Sonja and our beautiful female circle are also seen and heard in the documentary Finding Farideh. Not to mention that you hear me sing in the film… it is all about freeing my voice and feeling my own strength within my voice and re-connecting with the base of my essence and touches the source of creation. Singing is magic.

Singing in a female circle gives me the sense of belonging. It frees my soul.
That is priceless.

Sonja made 3 CD’s twenty years ago and these are now re-published. How exciting!!
As I can now share the Sacred Songs with you!
Some of the songs we sing in our circle.. check out this one, you might recognize if you have seen Finding Farideh.

Enjoy the 80 beautiful sacred songs… and yes a new series of post is born here,
