Leonard Cohen – A Time To Be Free

cohen

“We are so lightly here. It is in love that we are made. In love we disappear.”
― Leonard Cohen

I believe Leonard Cohen was a man who embraced the shadows of suffering and in doing so became a role model for humanity. With courage and a deep acceptance of the suffering of life he always remained humane and respectful rather than dragged down. He would sing out on religion, politics, love and sex often in a prayerful manner yet sometimes with a bit self-deprecating humor. There could be no better symbol for his journey than the life of Christ for in the darkest hours he believed there was a crack in everything and that is how the light would get in. Often moving to where the light was most dark and where he was most helpless he would explore and develop his consciousness within and when he would kneel down on his knees to sing, veneration and reverence exuded forth to open our hearts melted with compassion.

Cohen with his life of simplicity had a mind uncluttered and spaciousness so that he could think clearly with insight and clear language. His words were masterpieces that conveyed an alchemical flavour of clarity, simplicity, beauty and vibration.

“I don’t want to be a star, merely dying”, he once said and indeed he wasn’t for he glowed with magnetized life force having an aura that had the power to influence us all. Perhaps upon his death he might have burst into his ultimate flowering florescence surrounded by magic, where the crack opened for the light to come in and his clear mind finally gave up control.

The Female Body

The Dangling on The Female Body

So comfortable was she
As she slid out of that house-robe
With her blue mop of hair
Accentuating
Her unique style of positioning
The female body, for all to see

An ivory porcelain face
With full lips and sleepy eyes
In a dream state
While graceful hands and feet
Seemed to point the time away….

And then I noticed the dangling
Like an earring dropped
Between her legs
So beautiful was she.

The Perfect Lovers - Female Body

An Analyst Viewpoint:
Some people feel comfortable with their bodies and try to accentuate them in various ways to make them even more beautiful, while other people do not feel comfortable with their bodies and try to either hide or alter them into what they feel is a more acceptable version. The altering of genitals is called genital modification and/or genital mutilation referring to permanent or temporary changes to the human sex organs. Many people are deciding to have genital cosmetic surgery. But the fact of the matter is that the size, shape, and form of women and men’s genitals vary greatly, and change over time. They are like unique parts of nature such as flowers and all have their own special colouring and shape. Yet doctors are promoting “before and after‟ photographs of women’s labia, which invite people to believe that they might need some kind of surgery to promote beautification and enhancement. Just as each person has their own viewpoint of what makes a beautiful painting so should we be careful of being brainwashed into someone else’s viewpoint. Most people have little opportunity to see the genitals of others unless on porn sites
so they can easily be deceived into thinking they are sexually inadequate.

Labiaplasty is a procedure designed to remove excess skin folds from the outside opening of the vagina. There are many websites that will show before and after pics – it will show the cutting off and mutilating of these beautiful original flowers.

Eros and Psyche – Conrad Black & Barbara Amiel in Sacred Marriage.

eros and psyche

A perfect match with Eros and Psyche joined at the same Astrological degree for both Conrad Black and his wife Barbara. This is an indicator of soul mates – two people who have attracted a mate that makes them very happy. Conrad Black holds Psyche at 2 degrees Aquarius which matches her Eros at the same degree. Eros and Psyche are in a process of psychological transformation to gain mature consciousness with Eros, holding the power of attraction which brings these opposites together in a balancing act through a precious form of sacred marriage.

Eros(Έρως) God of love and Psyche(Ψυχή) meaning soul in Greek interact in the myth of Eros and Psyche, where Psyche begins her growth and development with the decision to face up to the truth, all the while being challenged to complete tasks that were initially beyond her ability. The story presents a deep and transformative type of love, and it includes severe hardships which makes the relationship become closer and very important for each lover.

In our own life, Eros represents erotic, passionate love and when someone’s astrological planet touches our natal Eros we want to merge and bond with them. As March 21 2016 draws near, transiting Eros will touch down at 2 degrees Aquarius activating further the chemistry bond of Eros and Psyche in the synastry chart of the two lovers, Conrad Black and his wife Barbara.

Eros and Psyche can also represent the inner HE and SHE that lies within each person. Sometimes this HE or SHE is called “The Beloved”, and it represents the inner lover. For example, the poet Rumi’s would write about his longing for union with his Beloved from whom he felt cut off from. The HE and SHE can also be seen in the context of relating to one’s anima/animus development. This archetype shows how we project our unconscious idea of the All-Woman or All-Man unto an individual in whom we see this ideal essence. Sadly, no one can ever live up to all the divine attributes or qualities that we might project unto them and when they fail to measure up, that is when we start to go through own process of consciousness.

The union of Eros with Psyche can result in a blissful experience of bonding soul and mind. Elements of this tale are found in fairytales such as Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast, but we can also find it in the love story of Conrad Black and his Barbara.

Cultivate Respect

We hurt each other in so many ways
From hunting and fishing, to movies and plays
Blanket the terrorism, so doves may then glide
Through all interactions,
Bringing peace worldwide

Never hurt the one you love
Just resolve the pain from your past,
Treat others kindly with kid gloves
To help move mountains of feelings,
that may have amassed

It’s a work of art, to dance together
The hows and whys, of a slight trigger
The side-steps over ruffled feathers
And never utter, a disrespectful snicker

Relationships are a sacred privilege
Held with a thread of utmost respect
Not an entitlement to trample or leech
Or use for gratification or to neglect

The journey of awakening in intimacy involves
Not in finding the right person
But in becoming the right person…
One who can give honor and respect
To the self and others

One who can realize the divinity within
Leading to mutual commitment
To help each other mate with their God-self
And to grow towards balance and enlightenment

Respectful Beginnings

Respectful Beginnings

It all starts with you
Your body and your mind….
Allow some self-respect to flow through
With the best nurturing & food you can find

Your body is the beginning of it all

Treasure, pamper and protect
This sacred temple where you live,
It’s your port of call for healing
With a loving interconnect

Message:
The amount of respect you have for yourself
Will be reflected in the quality of lovemaking,
you can experience, and, offer another
