Daylight Dies – Cathedral

 

Genre: Melodic Doom Death Metal

Lyrical Themes: Death and Depression

Location: United States, North Carolina

As the days get shorter and the light dimmer, the eerie and melancholy sound of Daylight Dies is appropriate. It reminds me of the cooling days, the crisp fall air and the crunch of browning leaves beneath my feet. To every time there is a season. This is the season of life’s decay – a necessary decay that I welcome. The cycle of life and destruction is an inevitable cycle we see in nature, and one we need to embrace in our own lives. What stagnant ideas or qualities of your life do you need to get rid of? Now is the time to destroy that which is rotting, so that new ideas may blossom and grow. Hail the coming darkness. Hail nature’s twilight.

Warrior Queen Boudica Documentary

 

Boudica is the Queen of the British Iceni tribe who led a revolt against the Romans in 60 AD.

Her husband, the original ruler, was an ally with Rome.

When he died, Boudica took over.

Yet the Romans did not respect a female ruler and decided that this would be the ideal time to annex her kingdom.

Boudica was publicly humiliated (flogged) and her daughters were raped.

Yet the Iceni people had a strong amount of respect for their queen.

With her people behind her, Boudica led a revolt against the Romans that would go down in history.

Ensiferum – Lai Lai Hei

 
Do Try This At Home

 

Meaning of the word “Ensiferum” : Sword Bearer

Country: Finland

Genre: Viking/Folk Metal

Lyrical Themes: Legends, Fantasy, Battles, Sorrow, Heathen Themes

This is by far one of my favorite Ensiferum songs. All at once it’s dynamic, powerful, enchanting and keeps you hooked. The first day I heard it I listened to it 10 times in a row. No joke! The lyrics appear to be in a mix of English and what I’m guessing is Finnish? Lyrics are HERE.


Russia’s Small Scale Organic Agriculture Model May Hold Key For Feeding The World

Is there a place in the world where you can own your own land?

Tax free?

No Government interference?

And is actually encouraged to support the independence and growth of local communities?

Is it America? Hell no. We’re talking about Russia comrade!

The 2003 The Bovine, Russia’s Private Garden Plot Act entitles every Russian to have their own land to farm.

Anywhere from 2.2 to 6.8 acres. Most of Russia’s food is organically grown in local backyards.

We should love the world for how it is, not how we want it to be. The world is already a wonderful place, why try to make it something it is not only to cause a disappointment?

KAILASA's Words of Eternal Bliss, Nithyananda!

In Sanskrit, there are 2 phrases that teach us reality:- Dhrishti Shrishti and Shrishti Dhrishti.

Dhrishti Shrishti means seeing the world as it is, taking it as it comes; to welcome what is, as reality. 

Shrishti Dhrishti means seeing the world as we would like it to be, through our own colored lens, through our fantasies.

The former leads to a peaceful life while the latter leads to suffering.
