1st AMENDEMENT – HEY USA, I’M CRYING or, ANNA-MARIA DO NOT CRY !

1-ul AMENADAMENT – HEI, AMERICA – EU PLING sau, ANNA-MARIA SA NU PLINGI !

Motto:

“ … Hey, USA – you forgot your own Constitution! And, if you did not foget it – definitely you forgot its FIRST AMENDMENT!”

… Hei, America – ai uitat propria ta Constitutie! Si, daca nu ai uitat-o – atunci cu siguranta ai uitat PRIMUL AMENDAMENT!”

(Theophil Magus)

 1st AMENDEMENT – HEY USA, I’M CRYING or, ANNA-MARIA DO NOT CRY !

Somewhere in the North-East of the USA, on the Atlantic shore there is a little vacation village: “Ocean Point”. During the winter, or in the beginning of springtime, or in the ending fall “Ocean Point” is a lone place. Yet, even in these seasons “Ocean Point” is fulfilled by a strange, out of this world beauty. But, in the full spring, in the summertime and in September, “Ocean Point” is the sublime synthesis of the whole world fairy-tales.

If you exclaim: “Oh, my God, it’s a dream! …” you say nothing by comparison with what you see, what you feel… And, everything, the vast green-blue ocean and its foamy waves, the huge yellow rocks, the faraway yachts and the lighthouse, the dwarfy islands, the old pines and the gold-blood flowers, the white houses under a never-ending blue sky … oh, Lord, everything  and all together… breathless you…

Ocean Point” has just one narrow street winding along the ocean shore for no more than two miles. Actually, this path goes to infinite… as infinite, and blessed is the beauty of the place.

Yes – what can we do? this is life –  yes, “Ocean Point” is indeed a heavenly oasis where everything is possible only if you have a yearly income at least a quarter of million dollars.

Therefore, on this infinite and blessed path of “Ocean Point”- walk, or run slowly or walk pure breed dogs, many kinds of  chimpanzees, orangutans and gorillas, every one of them soured, disgusted, having a long-blue face, deep wrinkles, being early aged by the daily life misery.        

So, I don’t know how, but it seems it was meant to be like this, because one day, this summer, almost every Saturday after the Mass, I started to go to “Ocean Point”. Certainly, just as a simple and very modest tourist.

And, when I saw how they look to me, all those rich monkeys disgusted by the daily life misery, well, inspired by Heaven, I decided to play on the CD-player of my car, some special music. 

Thus, every time I run slowly, slowly my car on the narrow street of “Ocean Point”, I open at large all the windows, I get the maximum volume of my speakers and I play: “Corazon Espinado”, that brilliant lump-of-life born from sadness and joy, from pain and happiness, the Latino song of Carlos Santana.  The whole “Ocean Point” rebound into “Corazon Espinado”. The ocean exults, the rocks, the pines rejoice, as well… And, the chimpanzees, the orangutans and the gorillas soured, disgusted by the misery of life, each and all of them become men and women, human kind.  And, they start to smile… so beautiful. So good smiles. More, some of them show me their two thumbs as, “great! thanks, man!” Oh, yes, “Corazon Espinado”:

Mi corazón aplastado/
Dolido y abandonado [Alt: Herido y abandonado]/
A ver, a ver tú sabes dime mi amor/
Cuánto amor?/
Y qué dolor nos quedó?/
***
(Coro🙂
Ah ah ah corazón espinado/
Ah ah ah cómo me duele el amor”

And, every time when it happens like this, I feel myself crushed by myself. Terrible crushed. So dreadful that I have not tears. Alas! and finally I thank to all of them by smiling back as a good Samaritan.  Just because my loneliness is calling now, but I hope not forever: “Corazon Espinado”.

 “… algae on the shore,/

dead oysters – desolation:/

the waves are crying…”

1-ul AMENADAMENT – HEI, AMERICA – EU PLING sau, ANNA-MARIA SA NU PLINGI !

Undeva in Nord-Estul Americii, pe tarmul Atlanticului exista un mic sat de vacanta numit “Ocean Point”.  Iarna, la inceput de primavara si sfirsit de toamna “Ocean Point” e pustiu. Dar si atunci o frumusete stranie, nepaminteana umple locul. In plina primvara, vara si la inceput de toamna insa, “Ocean Point” este sinteza sublima a basmelor lumii.

Exclamind, “Doamne, e de vis! …”, nu inseamna nimic fata de ceea ce vezi, fata de tot ce simti.  Si, totul, nesfirsitul ocean verde-albastrui cu valurile sale inspumate, ingalbenite stincile uriase, pinii batrini, iahturile din zare si farul dintre pitice insule, insingeratele flori de aur, casele albe, azurul cit vezi cu ochii… Doamne, totul iti taie respiratia.

Ocean Point” are o singura strada ingusta ce serpuieste de-a lungul tarmului, nu mai mult de vreo doua mile. Dar, in fapt e infinita… Precum infinita e frumusetea binecuvintata a locului…

Dar, ce sa-i faci? viata nu e o acadea si, da,“Ocean Point” este intr-adevar un petic de Rai unde totul este posibil doar incepind de la un venit anual de cel putin un sfert de milion de dolari. Iar astfel, pe acea fermecator serpuita straduta pasesc agale sau alearga, ori isi plimba ciinii, rase pure, tot felul de cimpanzei, urangutani sau gorile acrite, scirbite, cu fete lungi si cenusii, incretite adinc, devreme imbatrinite de mizeria vietii de zi cu zi.

Nu stiu cum, dar asa a fost sa fie, ca de la o vreme in aceasta vara,  aproape in fiecare duminica, dupa liturghie, sa-mi fac drum prin “Ocean Point”. Desigur, doar asa, ca simplu si amarit turist.

Si, cind am vazut cum ma privesc toate maimutele alea bogate si sictirite de mizeria vietii de zi cu zi, inspirat de Cel de Sus, am hotarit sa pun in CD-player-ul masinii mele un CD cu anume muzica.

Asa ca, de fiecare data cind ma plimb cu masina pe fermecatoarea straduta din “Ocean Point”, cobor toate gemurile masinii, dau volumul la maxim si ascult: “Corazon Espinado” – bulgarele-de-viata, scinteietor intru triste si bucurie, intru durere si fericire, cintecul Latino nascut de Carlos Santana. Rasuna si renaste tot “Ocean Point”: se bucura nespus oceanul, stincile, pinii cinta de bucurie… Iar cimpanzeii, urangutanii si gorielele acrite, scirbite de mizeria vietii, devin femei si barbati, devin oameni. Si zimbesc asa de frumos. Cu bunatate. Chiar imi fac semn cu mina a multumire adinca. Oh, da, “Corazon Espinado”:

Mi corazón aplastado/
Dolido y abandonado [Alt: Herido y abandonado]/
A ver, a ver tú sabes dime mi amor/
Cuánto amor?/
Y qué dolor nos quedó?/
***
(Coro:)
Ah ah ah corazón espinado/
Ah ah ah cómo me duele el amor”

Si, de fiecare data cind se intimpla astfel, eu ma simt strivit de mine insumi. Ingrozitor. Atit de cumplit incit nici sa pling nu mai pot. Doamnee! … Si, le multumesc zimbindu-le la rindul meu ca un bun samaritean… Caci, singuratea mea de acum, dar ma rog si sper intru stingerea ei, se numeste: “Corazon Espinado”.

 “… tarmul cu alge,/

scoici moarte – ce pustiu:/

valurile pling…”

The MISERY of the USA – ANNA-MARIA, DO NOT CRY, PRAY !

SUFERINTA AMERICII – ANNA-MARIA, NU PLINGE, ROAGA-TE !

/an English & Romanian Breathing/

Motto:

Kansas Music&Lyrics of “Dust in the Wind”:

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment’s gone
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind…

MY PRAYER INTO THE HOLY SPIRIT

***

THE HOLY GHOST…

is the state of unflinching Faith in meditation and in action, no matter where, when or in any situation.

The Holy Spirit is the Truth’s Spirit starting towards us from God Himself (and ending into God Himself) only to be into us through the Jesus Christ’s Word.

God is Jesus Christ. (John 14 / 15-17; 26 and 15 / 26, but 16 / 7; 13-15 too) and

(John 10 / 30 )

And, Jesus Christ:

If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8 / 31-32)

***

MY PRAYER

Every day I pray like this:

My Lord Jesus Christ into Father and the Holy Spirit, One God forever,

please help me that each moment of my life should be in this way:

to know that You are in Your Father-our Father, we are in You and You are in us.

(John 14 / 20).

Thus I will be free.

Thank you God. Amen.”

… the infinite silence…/

the ocean softly shivering/

…touched by the mountain…”

***

A PRAYER of my HEART

 

Pray into your heart, at least once a day:

I miss Jesus Christ. Amen.”

And, someday you will feel, you will understand that, truthfully, your miss for Jesus Christ is burning in you: in front of you, during your time and long after you.

Beyond you and yet inextinguishable into your heart. Eternally.

“… I listen to the flute…/

and, yes… lonely my heart hurts…/

and, yes… all those birches…”

 RUGĂCIUNEA mea ÎNTRU DUHUL SFÎNT

***

DUHUL SFÎNT…

… este starea de neclintită Credinţă în meditaţie şi în acţiune oriunde, oricînd şi în orice situaţie.

Este Duhul Adevărului pornind înspre noi dintru Dumnezeu (şi sfîrşind întru Dumnezeu), spre a fi înlauntru nostru si noi, prin Cuvintul lui Iisus Christos.

Dumnezeu este Iisus Christos.

(Ioan 14 / 15-17; 26 şi 15 / 26, dar şi 16 / 7; 13-15) şi (Ioan, 10 / 30)

Iar Iisus Christos:

Dacă veţi rămîne în Cuvîntul Meu, sînteţi cu adevărat ucenici ai Mei. Şi veţi cunoaşte adevărul şi adevărul vă va face liberi.“ (Ioan, 8 / 31-32)

***

RUGĂCIUNEA mea

Eu mă rog zilnic astfel:

Domnul meu Iisus Christos întru Tatăl şi Sfîntul Duh, Dumnezeu Unul vesnic,

te rog ajută-mă ca fiecare clipă a vieţii mele să fie aşa:

să cunosc că Tu eşti în Tatăl Tău-Tatăl nostru, noi sîntem în Tine şi Tu eşti în noi.

(Ioan, 14 / 20).

Căci astfel voi fi liber.

Mulţumesc, Doamne. Amin.”

… atita tacere…/

stins tremura oceanul…/

… atins de munte…”

***

O RUGACIUNE A INIMII mele

Roaga-te intru inima ta, macar o data pe zi:

Doamne, mi-e dor de Iisus Christos. Amin. ”

Si, cindva vei simti, vei intelege ca, intru adevar dorul tau de Iisus Christos este nestins in tine : dinaintea ta, in timpul tau si dupa tine.

Dincolo de tine si totusi nestins in inima ta. Etern.

“… ascult flautul…/

si, ma doare inima…/

off, mestecenii…”

  1. Citind foarte frumosul si miscatorul articol mi-am dat seama ca adevarata arta sub toate formele ei dupa ce samanta ei a fost sadita de ingeri „… Ascunsa-n suflet tainica cuminte, Din lin izvor de lacrime amare, Si din dulceata Bucuriei Sfinte, Ea suge hrana si se face mare…” – „Poezia” de Vasile Voiculescu
    Doamne ajuta!
    Ma-nclin,
    Cu drag,
    Florin
