Language

As a result of the elevated experiences I’ve been through in the new space in which I live, I have researched and found beautiful sound connections between the Hebrew language, which is dear to me and my favorite of all the languages my ears have heard so far, and between English.

The word: ‘Hila’ in Hebrew has several translations, including the familiar and well-known word: ‘Aura’, and also the word: ‘Corona’.

Beyond the relevance of the last translation to what is happening around, I’ve been moved by the phonetic closeness between the word ‘Or’ – ‘Light’ in Hebrew – and the word: ‘Aura’, and between the words: ‘Keren’, ‘Karnayim’, ‘Krina’ – ‘Beam’, ‘Rays’, ‘Radiation’ in Hebrew  – (after all, the Aura is the projection of the thing it encircles) and between the word: ‘Corona’.

One can say that maybe Covid 19 is called Corona, since it has ‘good’ and ‘bad’ hidden meanings … Maybe its role is to air , to make room for new light, for the rays of the cosmos, the divinity, the Source, to fill the voids created by human thinning… Maybe it is related, as the followers of conspiracies will say, to a new technological radiation power that is being built exactly in these moments around the world (G5), which I hope will also enable faster and higher-quality energetic communication over the distance, who knows?

Anyway, these rays might be for me, the Cornucopia (‘keren’ in Hebrew is also ‘Horn’) – the rays of abundance, the rays of light and the heat of the sun, a radiation that releases free movement without limits of time and space … I wish!

 

The Sacred Space

These days, we ask, implore and even demand from us to keep at least two meters apart …

This demand provokes frustration and anger in the hearts of many, but if we take a moment to look at it, we can recall the ancient Indian concept of the Sacred Space, which was an organic part of their culture and way of life …

According to Native American, the existence of a human being does not end in the limits of his body, but rather in the energetic space that surrounds him and is, in fact, the resonance of his presence …

Some call this energetic space Aura and some call it the encompassing light … In my experience, it doesn’t really matter what its name is, what matters is our need, as humans, to feel, see, be sensitive to and give it space …

If we learn to give this energetic cover a place, we will preserve a natural distance (which is not forced for external reasons) that respects the personal space of each of us, allowing for a sense of security and preventing penetration, discomfort and even aggression and profanity …

And here it is, amazingly and vice versa, this natural distance has the power to strengthen the unity and harmony between us … By being charged with the energies of two or more human beings, it may become a kind of glue that creats connection, closeness, balance and merging…

I chose a photo of a swan because the swan, although a noble, soft, and even magnificent animal, can become very aggressive towards penetrating its sacred space, its personal space, and not keeping a distance that does not threaten its existence …

 

Uncertainty

Another challenge we face these days is the feeling of uncertainty that floats on the surface and reminds us of its existence…

In my experience, uncertainty is not the extraordinary situation, but, rather, most of us attempt to create certainty and to believe in it is the one that deviates from the straight path… After all, if we take a moment to look at ourselves and the nature around us, we will discover that uncertainty is probably the ‘real game’ of our existence in this world…

The certainty is, in fact, a kind of fiction that supposedly gives us collateral, the vast majority of which turn out to be inconsistent with our expectations …

And I suggest, let’s get excited about the uncertainty, be intrigued by the fact that it has the magic of endless possibilities, the freedom to choose every moment anew, the almost limitless movement and action space, the vitality and joy of life…

Let’s use this time to learn to devote ourselves to the uncertainty, to release control and grip on the things that surround us, which are not as strong and stable as the center within us, which includes everything that we are…

In my experience, fearlessness, flexibility and creativity are these true tools in which we can rejoice and enjoy and even experience Inspiration and exaltation…

The Nomad and the Homeless

Every Friday at noon, Shlomit Achirotem, my friend (and possibly my sister) and me meet for a few hours at a cafe halfway between the Shapira neighborhood, where I currently reside and the ‘Haogen’ kibbutz where Shlomit lives … These meetings that take place for the personal need of both of us to share one another in the occurrences of our lives, are also a wonderful opportunity for a fertilize dialogue about the journey, destination and mission of each of us …

During our last meeting, the nomadic theme, that more and more interests me, was discussed, and we realized that the word ‘Nomad’ can be divided into two words – No and Mad – not crazy, sane … On the contrary – the nomad who might be interpreted as unusual and maybe even crazy, is perhaps the sane person in the group, which brings us back to an existential state where you can walk fearlessly and uninhibited with the spirit and not against it …

In this context, the threatening and controversial combination – ‘Homeless’, also mentioned…

What does it mean to be homeless? For me, this does not mean synonymous with misery, helplessness, lack of choice or the need to escape society, but rather the freedom to choose and release the grip on the walls, objects and accessories that supposedly provide us with security and stability…

Then these two sentences came to me:

The Nomad is the Homeless of the New World

The Homeless is the Nomad of the New World

Either way, my mental desire is to find a practical lifestyle model (whose rules are already becoming clear to me) based on the ‘equation’ that releasing the grip is actually the prescription for mental health …

The German Passport

I recently renewed the validity of my German passport, which I became authorized to receive 10 years ago.

During all these years I only used it when I was flying abroad a few times…

These days, when living abroad is at stake, I realized (for some reason I have not internalized it before) that in addition to being a citizen of Israel, I am also a citizen of Germany, and then I decided to choose Berlin as my next stop and a starting point to another circle in the Spiral …

I see myself standing on the stage again, this time across Europe, passing through me and echoing out words and melodies containing messages that I have collected for many years, and which are necessary for me to pass on…

This time, it will not only be the musical materials I wrote and still write, but also verbal content that I would like to speak to different audiences …

I have agreed, without ‘being ashamed’ anymore, to call this doing – a Mission, which, until it is not fulfilled, I will not gain peace and comfort …

As it seems now, with the support and help of good and professional people working around me and with me, which I really need right now, this may happen …

 

The Spirit Warriors

The Spirit Warriors are the same people who walk with the spirit and not against it.

The Spirit Warriors are the same people who believe in their species, want the best for them, willing to protect them, respect them and accept them whoever they are.

The words: war and soldering in Hebrew – Milhama and Halhama, are from the same root… to fighting and soldering is the same action, in fact – the war of the Spirit Warriors is with the blockages, objections, prejudices and fears that are still nested within him, and which he has to eradicate, In order that will be created soldering between him and his species

Mars

The first album I purchased over 30 years ago was:

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars …

This album and other well-known and beloved songs by Bowie, such as, Space oddity and Life on Mars, became central and significant in the soundtrack of my life, also because the connection with Mars had created an inexplicable identification with me, and much of what was echoed by Bowie’s songs, such as ‘spoke’ me too …

When the Israeli Mars Association was founded in Israel, which, among other projects, it has been building experimental Habitat in Ramon Crater at the end of the period I was living in Mitzpe Ramon, I chose to join it …

The day I arrived in London This past July, the exhibition opened: Moving to Mars –

A high quality, comprehensive and exciting exhibition that reveals everything about the Red Planet…

I found in the exhibition sights, sounds, concepts, images and objects that seem to come from similar sources of inspiration which I also create … For example, the concept

the Origin Matter, almost identical to my album name: Original Matter, the great use of the combination Space Observatory, reminiscent of the name of the music and mysticism space I created at Mitzpe Ramon: Observation Space, and the cooling suits of the future Martians which I would wear, if I could, on the next opportunity to appear on stag…

At the same time, it seems clear to all of us that if we do not work for being more elaborate and improved beings, no planet can save us from ourselves …

The Truth

On one of the occasions when I visited London in the distant past, stood on a crate in ‘The Speakers’ Corner’ in Hyde Park, a man dressed in black, and loudly declared that the God of Jews is the only one, that Moses is the Prophet and that the words of the Torah are the only truth.

Six years ago, on a crate in that corner, another man dressed in black stood up, loudly declaring that the God of Christians is the one and only, that Jesus is the Prophet and that the words of the New Testament are the only truth…

At September this year stood on a crate in the same corner, a black-clad man and declared loudly that the God of Muslims is the one and only, that Muhammad is the Prophet and that the words of the Quran are the only truth.

Same same!

At each of these opportunities I chose to respond, and my first question was: What is that truth they are talking about? The answers I received were stuttered and accompanied by quotations from the scriptures … none of them were complete, compelling, clear and to the point…

At each of these opportunities, this question led to a discussion, which led to a kind of debate, which, as is customary at Hyde Park, led to a gathering of people’s circles around…

My argument was in all three cases that the truth is primarily a question mark…it is not in the hands of anyone and at the same time it may be in us all, that there are no significant gaps between one prophet and another, that we are the creators of Names (God, Allah, god) for the same unclear and unknown source that we all probably came from, and we all probably will also go back to – We are doing this just for the sake of grasping something, and that all of these texts, beautiful and smart as they are, in the end, texts written by flesh and blood.

I added that In my experience, there is a frequency where we can, if we just want to, meet and   connect with each other … in each of us’s hands to make his way to that frequency without having to follow the paths of others (since, in my opinion, as the number of people, so the number of paths) and no need to cling to what created it all…

In all three cases things, so it seems, remained open, and they continue to resonate with me … hope that with them too …

Recordings

My new home has now become, among other things, a recording studio… Shimon Tal, my dear friends and I are working on my new material together, this time in an intimate atmosphere…

This is a completely different story to record an album in ‘ the home field’ … Simon brought his professional gear that connected to my equipment and it all happens in my living room …

It’s amazing how in reverse, I had to go back to the big  and bustling city to win a quiet that allows for such a recording … a quiet that even the desert didn’t allow…

Apparently, that in the right areas of Tel Aviv (which, incidentally, I realized again that it does not fall into its vibe and the intensity of what other cities like London, New York or Berlin have) there are enveloping energy, inspiration  and that long-awaited quiet…

And although in order to record a near-sterile silence, Simon and I decided that we would use the delicate background noise that still exists … and what are those background sounds?

Well,

When Shimon and I met for a preparation meeting in my home, we listened carefully to what was happening around and heard to our surprise, birds that tweeted with a lot of sounds… We smiled and acknowledged that it is precisely in the urban nature where we sit, the most dominant   is the chirping of the birds…

Money

The days are unbearable heat, but it is precisely during such an overheated season that I feel flourishing… another station in my Journey of wandering … and this time I ‘park’ to the depths of the soil, to the base, to the roots… to give myself another respectable dose of freedom…

This time it was money, an obscene word for me so far, and now I understand how to access it from the same creative place that has life … learning to operate in a new space, learning a new language that will allow me to sculpt, write and play the dry and lifeless numbers, revive them and know how to redirect them in my favor… and that, it turns out, is possible….

Many people, men, most of them, those who ‘understood money’ more than I did, because they set aside time, energy and thought,  were in front of me… among them my father, my brother, my former husband, spouses and friends.

I have always felt that their attitude to money was one that was not necessarily motivated by abundance thinking, and their grip on money prevented freedom of action…

In my experience, today, the only way for me to face money is to see before my eyes a situation where it is simply there, and whose purpose is to serve me and the others around me…

What excites me about this whole thing is the knowledge that when a real abundance will come to my life, my loved ones and those I will choose will be able to enjoy it as well…. In my belief, when that is the motivation, material abundance will not be delayed or blocked…

It will expand and intensify with proper intent and careful and meticulous action, but, first of all, it will come from love …
