I’d lay in bed at night and listen to them lowing, down by the river. American trains mourn. Their horns are haunting, especially in the dark. There’s a funereal yearning to them via Warren Ellis

The effect of the cultural bomb is to annihilate a people’s belief in their names, in their languages, in their environment, in their heritage of struggle, in their unity, in their capacities and ultimately in themselves. It makes them see their past as one wasteland of non-achievement and it makes them want to distance themselves from that wasteland. It makes them want to identify with that which is furthest removed from themselves; for instance, with other peoples’ languages rather than their own. It makes them identify with that which is decadent and reactionary, all those forces that would stop their own springs of life. It even plants serious doubts about the moral righteousness of struggle. Possibilities of triumph or victory are seen as remote, ridiculous dreams. The intended results are despair, despondency and a collective death-wish. Ngugi wa Thiong’o, Decolonising the Mind (via daughterofzami)

"In the radio interview, Henry Flynt tells a story in which he and Tony Conrad first hear a recording of Ali Akbar Khan. The two of them spin a theory in which this recording of the great Indian musician was actually cooked up in the off-hours by members of the New York Philharmonic in someone’s basement in Brooklyn. This speaks to one of the mysteries of sound recording - and one that seems to have appealed to Flynt - namely, that a dearth of information surrounding the circumstances of a recording can allow the imagination to jump to the fore."

A one pager, not too much thought went into it. I need to dive deeper into the concept of storytelling and truths. In the meantime, got to start somewhere. Why not with occasional one pagers?

“Listen to me. I know something else. It will begin again. 200,000 dead and 80,000 wounded in nine seconds. Those are the official figures. It will begin again. It will be 10,000 degrees on the earth. Ten thousand suns, people will say. The asphalt will burn. Chaos will prevail. An entire city will be lifted off the ground, and fall back to earth in ashes…I meet you. I remember you. Who are you? You’re destroying me. You’re good for me. How could I know this city was tailor-made for love? How could I know you fit my body like a glove? I like you. How unlikely. I like you. How slow all of a sudden. How sweet. You cannot know. You’re destroying me. You’re good for me. You’re destroying me. You’re good for me. I have time. Please, devour me. Deform me to the point of ugliness. Why not you?”

Shambhala Mandala. The Magic Kingdom. 1700s.
Shambhala or “bde ‘byung” in Tibetan, means “The source of happiness”. The Kingdom of Shambhala takes a central place in the Kalachakra teachings. Not only did the historical Shakyamuni Buddha teach the Kalachakra tantra at the request of King Suchandra of Shambhala, also the teachings are said to be preserved there. It is predicted that a few centuries from now, a spiritual revival of the world will come from Shambhala.
As can be seen on the image above, Shambhala is usually depicted as circular. Divided like a Dharma-Wheel, it spreads out between high mountains and contains many cities. In the center of the hub is the capital Kalapa. Several people, including the ones who brought the Kalachakra teachings into our world, are said to have traveled there, or have had visions of it. One of the visionaries alive these days is Khamtrul Rinpoche.
As His Holiness the Dalai Lama noted during the 1985 Kalachakra initiation in Bodhgaya, Shambhala is not an ordinary country: ”Although those with special affiliation may actually be able to go there through their karmic connection, nevertheless it is not a physical place that we can actually find. We can only say that it is a pure land, a pure land in the human realm. And unless one has the merit and the actual karmic association, one cannot actually arrive there.”
