Reflection for today…No One Can Take Your Destined Lover -Italian Proverb & Goldfrapp

Have you ever reflected on the concept of soulmates?

Do they really exist?

Does life consist of destiny/fate or choices/free will?

Perhaps it is a mixture of both?

Something about this quote resonates with me. It feels true.

I heard a similar saying in Spanish {which I cannot remember right now}.

No one can take the one that is destined for you.

{The universe will unite you & this mysterious one eventually}.

What about fate itself?

Perhaps it is all a mental cul-de-sac?

For now, all I know is that we can relax and let life unfold naturally and organically.

Please enjoy Utopia by Goldfrapp…

Although the song’s true meaning is not related to soulmates, love or the quote mentioned above, its essence does.

The way that it makes me feel when I hear it reminds me of love, lovers and soul mates- especially when she sings,

“I forgot who I am when I’m with you.”

It alludes to one’s identity and ego dissolving in the presence of their beloved.

To me, that sounds powerful, esoteric and healing.

{Can you believe this song is twenty years old?

It sounds just as fresh and lovely as ever.

I deeply adore it}.

Utopia

Goldfrapp

UTOPIA LYRICS

[Verse 1]
“It’s a strange day
No colours or shapes
No sound in my head
I forget who I am
When I’m with you
There’s no reason
There’s no sense
I’m not supposed to feel
I forget who I am
I forget

[Chorus]
Fascist baby
Utopia, utopia

[Verse 2]
My dog needs new ears
Make his eyes see forever
Make him live like me
Again and again

[Chorus]
Fascist baby
Utopia, utopia

[Bridge]
I’m wired to the world
That’s how I know everything
I’m superbrain
That’s how they made me

[Chorus]
Fascist baby
Utopia, utopia.”

“Utopia” is an epic, cinematic electronic song that heavily features Alison’s operatic vocals.”

On A Trip to Felt Mountain Alison explains what it is about:

“Utopia’s about genetics and cloning and the idea that – I mean, I’m not saying that this is right, but I’m playing with the idea that if we’re all striving to sort of be perfect and we want other people to look perfect, and we have this sort of body type that we’re supposed to aspire to, basically what I’m saying is that that is a form of fascism.”

Alison also commented on the song on Twitter during the lead-up to the release of The Singles:

“A story about an android born as a result of designer breeding in a utopian society. Feeling love for mortals is confusing for her.”

My Dark Metamorphosis…

17 Oct

Hello again old friends…

It has been two years since I posted anything on this blog. I have been wanting to post something on this blog for such a long time. I had a wealth of ideas marinating in my mind yet I did not end up translating them into action.

What happened to me? I lost my confidence and to some extents my vitality. It seems that the longer you are away from writing or any other creative pursuit, the more you seem to lose your confidence as you criticize and doubt yourself.

Life has put me to the test in a myriad of different ways. I have often felt like the biblical Job who was rigorously tested by God. I felt like the tide had swept me under an abyss and in a way I lost myself. Like Alice in Wonderland, I ended up lost with only my intuition as my compass.

Despite all the spiritual darkness that I have been through, I feel as though my absence from this blog has been a time of tremendous self exploration and spiritual growth. Lately, I finally feel that I am slowly coming out of this darkness and am stronger than I have been.

Many blessings have come out of these dark days. I have had spiritual revelations and life epiphanies. My love of music and exercise has intensified more than ever. I have the deepest respect for both activities. Exercise helps me deal with life and its many challenges. Music is pure soul food and inspiration. The combination of exercising and listening to my music is so healing and relaxing.

I have been listening to so much of my beloved music. I am going to continue to feature it on this blog. I am going to continue to celebrate all of my favourite music, poetry, quotes, artists, films, t.v. shows, ideas, research, people, etcetera on this blog.

I am going to do some stream of consciousness posts because otherwise I will go into analysis paralysis and take too long to write anything. Also, the writing will be natural and organic because it is from the creative flow of my mind and whatever inspires me and haunts me. I am also going to work on all the blog posts saved in the drafts folder.

I have really missed having this blog. It is my passion project and creative outlet. I miss working on blog posts. My inquisitive mind loves doing research as I always learn from it. I love writing and editing. The most rewarding part of having this blog is reading your enlightening comments.

Thank you for still being here if you are. Please let me know if there is anything you would like to read here. I am open to requests.

Namaste, Love & Spiritual Light.

-V.

Best of Me Hannibal
