THE HUMILITY OF GENIUS

X

Casals studied the suites for 12 years before
he first offered his rendition to the public.

X

He discovered the score by accident in Barcelona at the age of 13
and
later declared that this incident “changed his life”.

X

Casals was the first to play all the suites in one concert.

In Zen Buddhism, ensō (円相 , “circle”)
is a circle
that is hand-drawn
in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes
to express a moment when
the mind is free to let the body create.

X

X

The ensō symbolizes
absolute enlightenment,
strength,
elegance,
the universe,
and
mu (the void).

X

Ensō is characterized by a minimalism
born of Japanese aesthetics
and
Zen Buddhism’s disciplined meditation.

“The circle is a symbol of the Self. 
It expresses the totality of the psyche in all its aspects,
including the relationship between man and the whole of nature.”

The most common first scribbles of children are circles and crosses,
basic symbols of wholeness and spirit.

X

Concentric circles, or circles within circles,
 have a long historical association that depicts the cosmos and its spheres
as a microcosm within a macrocosm.
These early shapes are imprinted deeply in the soul,
emerging through expressive art forms
and
within dreams-spontaneously.

The circle embodies a spiritual energy.
Consider the circle symbol meaning with the Native American medicine wheels
-the integration of energy and matter – spirit and humans,
combining for the purpose of greater spiritual understanding and evolution.

The most sacred learning/teaching dynamic, I BELIEVE,
is a
a testament of a bone/heart/soul/blood education
that recognizes and incorporates  
the principle of cycles within cycles
-that is, deeper levels of meaning
are  found in every learning/teaching process,
and
presents something for everyone to learn,
at every stage of life
acknowledging the levels of maturity.
The willingness, capability and readiness
TO learn
is GRACE and the unfolding inquisitiveness of the learner’s
 (not paralleling with the Western educational model with a temporal sequence)
 developmental capabilities and processes.

X

X

The best teacher is an open mind
and  
is embodied by the teacher/individual
who is a tender and fierce gardener of the student’s soul.
ORGANIC, not ONLY academic!
The teacher is a vehicle, a vibrational conduit.
The teacher is NOT  “I am the MASTER” 
and you, the student, serve me (!)
-that is a rigid POWER OVER stance demonstrating hubris, insecurity
and toxic displaced arrogance.  

X

 Learning is call and response,
a gospel song of exploration; humility; experimentation;
redemption and improvisation
that breaks open uncharted earth, waters, fires and skies
with awe and wonder.

 

GRACE.

Concentric rings are among the most complex symbols
in Native American ways of knowing
because they represent relationships between
all symbols in the system as well as all processes.

X

X

X

medicine wheel

 

 

 

The Native American Medicine Wheel suggests, by its very structure,
a relativistic approach to human experience.
There are four directions, an inner circle and an outer one.
Things appear differently depending upon your position,
where you are on the wheel of life.

It is possible to capture the meaning of concentric circles
in the below bulleted list,
yet, the list runs the risk of being reductive.
In general, concentric circles represent:
  • processes,
  • interrelationships,
  • wholeness,
  • systemic view of nature and universe,
  • usually physically represented as a place or location
    from which stories and experience emanated
    and to which the people and stories are historically tied,
    and layers of meaning.

    X

    X

    X

Every myth has its concentric rings of meaning
and is told and retold in this way.
The telling of a myth begins with a simple version for children,
then moves to a slightly more complicated version for adolescents,
to a deeper version for initiates,
and
to a still deeper version for the fully mature”.

Circles were protective emblems to the Celtic mind.
Circles were often drawn as protective boundaries,
not to be crossed by enemy or evil.
Circles were also  Celtic symbols of the cosmos
– noting, in symbol, the intangible procession of time.

Celtic Triskele (Triple Spiral) Stone Carving, Newgrange, Ireland ~ symbolic of the three realms: Land/Sea/Sky or the Triple Goddess (phases of womanhood): Maiden/Mother/Crone

In Chinese macrocosmic symbology,
the circle expresses the shape of heaven,
with earth signified by a square.
When we see a square inside a circle in Chinese art,
it represents the union between heaven and earth.

The deeply significant yin yang symbol is circular,
and speaks to us of encompassing
the whole of duality
with intent for unified balance.

The Traditional Chinese characters 陰 and 陽
for the words yīn and yáng
are both classified as radical-phonetic characters,
combining the semantically significant
“mound; hill” radical 阝 or 阜
with the phonetic indicators yīn 侌 and yáng 昜.
The first phonetic yīn 侌 “cloudy” ideographically combines jīn 今 “now;
present” and yún 云 “cloud”,
denoting the “今 presence of 云 clouds”. 
The second phonetic yáng 昜 “bright”
originally pictured 日 the “sun” with 勿 “rays coming down”.
This phonetic is expanded
with the “sun” radical into yáng 暘 “rising sun; sunshine”.
The “mound; hill” radical 阝full forms
semantically specify yīn 陰 “shady/dark side of a hill”
and
yáng 陽 “sunny/light side of a hill”.

X

The Simplified Chinese characters 阴 and 阳 for yīn and yáng
combine the same “hill” radical 阝
with the non-phonetic yuè 月 “moon” and 日 “sun”,
graphically denoting “shady side of a hill”
and
“sunny side of a hill”.

This has been called one of the best-known sentences in the English language,

PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER

Patti Smith + Fred “Sonic” Smith  1988
X
X
I was dreaming in my dreaming
of an aspect bright and fair
and my sleeping it was broken
but my dream it lingered near
in the form of shining valleys
where the pure air recognized
and my senses newly opened
I awakened to the cry
that the people / have the power
to redeem / the work of fools
upon the meek / the graces shower
it’s decreed / the people rule
X
X
The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power
X
X
Vengeful aspects became suspect
and bending low as if to hear
and the armies ceased advancing
because the people had their ear
and the shepherds and the soldiers
lay beneath the stars
exchanging visions
and laying arms
to waste / in the dust
in the form of / shining valleys
where the pure air / recognized
and my senses / newly opened
I awakened / to the cry
X
X
The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power
X
X
Where there were deserts
I saw fountains
like cream the waters rise
and we strolled there together
with none to laugh or criticize
and the leopard
and the lamb
lay together truly bound
I was hoping in my hoping
to recall what I had found
I was dreaming in my dreaming
god knows / a purer view
as I surrender to my sleeping
I commit my dream to you
X
X
The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power

The power to dream / to rule
to wrestle the world from fools
it’s decreed the people rule
it’s decreed the people rule

can come to pass through our union
we can turn the world around
we can turn the earth’s revolution

“I thought he had a gun in his hand,”
Yanez said later.
Yanez feared for his life, he said,

Recounting the shooting the following day, Yanez said:

“I thought I was gonna die.

noun: panic

1. sudden uncontrollable fear or anxiety, often causing wildly unthinking behavior.

X

A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear
that triggers severe physical reactions
when there is no real danger or apparent cause.
Panic attacks can be very frightening.
When panic attacks occur,
you might think you’re losing control,
having a heart attack or even dying.

Panic sends a massive amount of cortisol 
to course through the body
causing a fight or flight reaction.  
A person’s sudden reaction demonstrates +  discloses
their primal  blueprint/character/biases – a construct.

of  the driver, Philando Castile,
the passenger, Diamond Reynolds,
with their passenger in the back seat,
Diamond’s 4 year old daughter,

– KNOWING the “drill”  reactivity/ brutal reality of
 the blue uniform and the black male driver in America.
They were to be served and protected by the blue uniform
– the “expectation” of ALL Americans.

Imagine the FEAR/ PANIC of  the NRA for

NOT by word or pledge.

12 ANGRY MEN

Sixty years after its initial release,
the ultimate American morality tale
still has lessons we would do well to heed.

TC JAZZ FEST  22 JUNE 2017

Terence Blanchard feat. The E-Collective

http://www.terenceblanchard.com/

X

“Imitation is suicide”

proclaimed a recorded voice
in reference to
the responsibility of the artist.

X

Guitar / Charles Altura
Piano / Fabian Almazan
Bass / David Ginyard, Jr.
Drummer / Oscar Seaton

X

Brilliant + Relevant + Poignant + Genius

 ALWAYS Moving FORWARD

The band affirmed its vitality with fervent originality
and
the sonics of Blanchard’s E-Collective IS a call to action.

X

The band dedicated a piece titled SOLDIERS to Philando Castile.
Blanchard’s JIMI HENDRIX was dedicated to Diamond Reynolds and her daughter.

X

I spoke to Terence afterward
artists ARE the hurricane lamps, the light towers that break OPEN
OUR responsibility IS to experiment, explore and MOVE FORWARD.

X

ARTISTS are LOVELIGHTHOPE.

COURAGEOUS + COMPASSIONATE + COMMITTED.
TRUE + PRACTICED RISK TAKERS/EXPLORERS.
SPEAK IN ALL TONGUES OF JOY + SUFFERING.
CALLS OUT THE SOUL + GRACE ENERGY IN HUMANITY.
AUTHENTIC MAVERICKS.
LISTENERS OF THE DIVINITY WITHIN + OF OTHERS.
TRUST THEIR INTERNAL “DIVINING RODS”.
CAPACITY TO RIDE THE WAVE OF UNCERTAINTY + AMBIGUITY.
CREATING QUESTIONS RATHER THAN NEEDING THE ANSWERS IS THE FUEL.
GOSPEL SINGERS OF TRUTH + FREEDOM + RHYTHMS OF THE SUBLIME
COMMUNICATION VEHICLES OF/ FROM THE FIRST LIGHT @ NIGHT.

ALWAYS MOVING FORWARD.

SEERS.

 

YES.

“Loving isn’t merging, surrendering, uniting with the other.
Rather, it’s a kind of solitude; of profound aloneness.
It induces you to mature and become whole
for the sake of your beloved
… to truly love another,
you must first wholly love yourself.
Love therefore exacts the most demanding claim of all;
it both chooses you and pursues you,
and reaches out,
as if over vast distances,
to call and draw you into your now
and
future self.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
