Atat de simplu

Atât de simpluE simplu să-nţelegi, doar când în ochi priveşti
Şi să citeşti un gând de bucurie sau de supărare.
E-atât de simplu când sincer tu iubeşti,
S-alini Tot, c-o mângâiere sau c-o-mbrătişare.

E foarte simplă ziua când zorile-şi arată,
Şi-ntunecimea nopţii, deodat” aşa dispare,
Trăgând uşor perdeaua de peste lumi lăsată,
Dezvăluind imagini, când soarele apare.

E-atât de simplă floarea în ale ei petale,
Şi creşte pe câmpie şi chiar pe colţ de stâncă..
Hrănindu-se cu soare şi apă din izvoare
Se mângâie cu vântul, ce-ntruna o alintă.

E-atât de simplă viaţa şi moartea este simplă,
Te naşti într-o secundă şi mori intr-o secundă,
Şi doar în mintea noastră atâtea se întamplă,
Făcând aproape totul, Esenţa să ne-ascundă...

Raven Symbolism

Raven Symbolism

If you’re looking for raven symbolism pertaining to ill omen, death or other gruesome turns of thought, look elsewhere. There are plenty sources to feed macabre minds, and malign the raven.

It’s not that I’m a big advocate of raven energy, and even if I were, it wouldn’t matter because the raven needs no champion. Content to move about its bizarre ways in solo-mode, the raven could care less if I’m pro or con for its symbolic status.

I just think the raven has more to offer than uneducated conjecture and superstition (most of which has only cropped up over the last few centuries).

A lot of negative raven symbolism comes about from their appearance on battlefields...

Sword symbolism…

Exploring sword symbolism…

As an alchemical symbol the sword is a symbol of purification. Here we experience the metaphorical sword cleanly piercing the spiritual soul of man. This symbolic action sacrifices physical bondage to release a path to ethereal (enlightened) freedom.

In fact, Nuada’s great sword is considered one of the four treasures (sword, stone, spear, cauldron). Nuada was associated with the supernatural forces of the underwater realm.

Alcjomie Spirituala

Se întâmpla câteodata sa vina la mine cineva pentru a mi se plânge ca nu reuseste sa scape de un viciu care îl chinuie. Saracul de el, a încercat de sute de ori dar nici o data nu a reusit. Atunci îi spun: “Ei bine, dar asta e minunat, este de-a dreptul formidabil! Asta dovedeste pur si simplu cât sunteti de puternic!” Ma priveste uluit si se întreaba daca nu cumva îmi bat joc de el. Atunci îi spun: Nu, deloc, nu râd de dumneata, dar pur si simplu dumneata nu-ti dai seama de propria forta. – Dar care forta? Eu nu reusesc niciodata, sunt mereu victima si asta este o dovada ca sunt slab. – Ba nu, nu gândesti corect. Sa analizam cum s-au petrecut lucrurile si ai sa întelegi ca nu glumesc deloc. Cine a format viciul acesta?… Dumneata...

Elemental Alchemy Symbols

At the most basic level, elemental alchemy symbols represent the raw self; having the capacity of being transmuted into a higher, incorruptible self.

This page investigates alchemy element symbols and their philosophical meanings.

The realm of alchemy is filled with hidden and double meanings. Just as each element has a physical representation, so too does it have a philosophical meaning in the alchemical school of thought.

It should be noted that the ancient founders of alchemy were avidly loyal to their craft. So much so, that many of the surviving reference material is quite obscure. Alchemists shrouded much of their craft to assure the seeker is determined and devoted to learning...
