London-San Francisco Detour
"Nemo" supersnowstorm alters our travel plans
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb 9, 2013 - Well, we are now 5,500 miles closer to home, 2,500 miles to go. Whew! It will be good to get back to Maui. It always is, but especially after a travel ordeal like this one.
Check out the photos (below) I took as we flew over Greenland, about one-third of the way from London to San Francisco.
HAIKU, Maui, Feb 11, 2013 - We are finally home. And the Spirit welcomed us (as usual, it seems) with some beautiful "welcome home" rainbows which popped up in the western sky this morning. Here's one of them...
Here are also some other "welcome home" rainbows...
As you may know
by now, the Spirit realm often communicate with me
through music and nor just through rainbows (see "Music
of Rainbows" Rainbow (Dec 9, 2012). So they also
delivered their musical message to me this morning.
It was my "welcome home"
And now, after receiving this morning's musical guidance, I feel the Spirit message is that we should be staying here. You see, after my 12-21-12 Amantani initiation and ascension, I had been wondering if we should go back to AZ for a while. Guess not...
By the way, the composer's (Satie's) coining of the word "gnossienne" was one of the rare occasions when a composer used a new term to indicate a new "type" of music. "Gnossienne" was a word that did not exist before. Satie used it as a title for this piece. The word appears to be derived from "gnosis" (knowing without knowing why). Satie was involved in gnostic sects and movements at the time that he began to compose the Gnossiennes. However, some published versions claim that the word derives from Cretan "knossos" or "gnossus" and link the Gnossiennes to Theseus, Phaedra, Ariadne and the Minotaur myth. Several archeological sites relating to that theme were famously excavated around the time that Satie composed the Gnossiennes.
Theseus, king-founder of Athens, as some of you may know, is one of my past incarnations, while Phaedra is Elizabeth's equivalent one from that period (see (see Ancient reek Tragedy Replayed in Trier, Pula, Maui in 2011 (yinyangbob.com, Nov 10, 2011). Which is probably why my Spirit guides chose to use this music as my welcome home guidepost.
I never cease to me amazed by the intricacy and sophistication of the Spirit guidance. I am now working on my own rendition of Satie's "Gnossienne No. 1." For some reason, I am hearing it with the sound of crashing ocean waves as the rhythm section. Guess that also hints at its Crete origin.
And now, here it is in my audio-visual rendition as I heard it an envisaged it this morning:Gnossienne No. 1 with Rainbows, Ocean Wave Orchestra (Feb 11, 2013)
