One of my Analogies about Life

By June 13, 2016August 28th, 2020No Comments
I ENVISION THIS HORIZONTAL SPIRAL, WHERE OUR SOUL IS PLACED IN THE UNIVERSE.  WE MEET SOMEBODY AT A POINT IN OUR SPIRAL, AND AS LIFE TURNS, IT IS VERY LIKELY THAT WE WILL ENCOUNTER THIS PERSON AGAIN.  BEING AWARE OF THIS HAPPENS WITH AGE, THE OLDER WE GET, THE MORE THAT UNDERSTAND THAT PEOPLE COME AND GO AND ARE LIKELY TO COME BACK!  I WOULDN’T WANT TO USE THE PHRASE “TO BE CAREFUL”, BUT I AM GOING TO USE IT.  WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WITH HOW WE ARE WITH THE PEOPLE THAT CROSS OUR SPIRAL PATH.  WE NEVER KNOW HOW THAT SAME PERSON MIGHT SHOW UP IN A MOMENT OF NEED OR JOY IN OUR LIFE.  I TRY TO LIVE MY LIFE, KEEPING THIS IN MIND.  OF COURSE I’M NOT A GOODIE TWO-SHOE. ALTHOUGH, AT THE SHOE STORE YES, I AM!  IN MY LIFE HOWEVER, I MAKE ALL KINDS OF MISTAKES IN MY SPIRAL LIFE.  BUT I’M PRETTY CLOSE TO BEING PERFECT….  HA! HA!  THIS MIGHT SOUND ARROGANT BUT SOMETHING DEEP WITHIN ME KNOWS THAT YOU ARE PROBABLY THINKING THIS ABOUT YOURSELF TOO….AM I RIGHT OR AM I RIGHT?

THE MOST IMPORTANT MISSION OF ANY HUMAN BEING IN THIS LIFE IS TO BE HAPPY.  IT IS EACH PERSON’S RESPONSIBILITY TO FIND THEIR OWN HAPPINESS.  BY THE WAY, I LOVE THE BRAZILIAN SONG, SAMBA DA BENÇÃO (SAMBA OF THE BLESSING). THE LYRICS SAY “IT’S BETTER TO BE HAPPY THAN SAD; HAPPINESS IS THE BEST THING THERE IS”.…HELLO?… AS IF IT IS AN EASY THING TO DO!!  THE PEOPLE WHO APPEAR IN OUR LIVES CONTRIBUTE TO OUR HAPPINESS OR OUR SADNESS. BUT THIS IS THE YIN AND YANG OF LIFE.  IT IS THE LIGHT OR DARKNESS OF LIFE.  IT IS THE SPICY OR PLAIN DISH.  IT IS THE SANDAL OR THE HIGH HEEL.  THERE IS AN ELEMENT IN OUR SADNESS THAT IT COULD HAVE A BEAUTY.  THE SECRET IS TO CREATE THE MAGIC TO MAKE IT.  OUR SPIRAL TURNS AND TURNS IN THE SAME PLACE WITHIN THE UNIVERSE.  I VISUALIZE MY SPIRAL TURNING WITH COLORS AND LIGHTS DEPENDING ON THE ERA IN WHICH I’M LIVING.  I FEEL MY LONG HAIR FLOATING AT EACH TURN AND IF THAT DAY I HAPPEN TO BE WEARING MY BANGLES, THEY MAKE MUSIC AS THEY MOVE.

IF THIS IS TOO ABSTRACT FOR YOU, DON’T WORRY. IT IS ABSTRACT FOR ME TOO.  BUT IT IS HOW MY BRAIN WORKS.

HAPPY SUMMER DAY!

LYRICS TO SAMBA DA BENÇÃO (SAMBA OF THE BLESSING) :
(BADEN POWELL, VINICIUS DE MORAES)

IT’S BETTER TO BE HAPPY THAN SAD
HAPPINESS IS THE BEST THING THERE IS
IT IS LIKE A LIGHT IN THE HEART
BUT TO MAKE A SAMBA WITH BEAUTY
IT’S NEEDED A BIT OF SADNESS
IF NOT THE SAMBA CAN’T BE MADE

TO MAKE A SAMBA IS NOT LIKE TELLING A JOKE
AND WHO MAKES SAMBA LIKE THIS IS WORTH NOTHING
THE GOOD SAMBA IS A KIND OF PRAYER
BECAUSE SAMBA IS THE SADNESS THAT SWAYS
AND SADNESS IS ALWAYS HOPEFUL
OF ONE DAY NOT BEING SAD ANY MORE

PUT A LITTLE LOVE IN THE CADENCE
AND YOU’LL SEE THAT IN THIS WORLD NOBODY WINS
THE BEAUTY THAT A SAMBA HAVE
BECAUSE SAMBA WAS BORN IN BAHIA
AND IF TODAY IT IS WHITE IN IT’S POETRY
IT IS VERY BLACK IN IT’S HEART.
