    Here's a film that is premiering here this week and it's from Terence Malick.
    In it he ponders morality and one's faith in God and all that is good in this world.

    "If God gives us free will, we are responsible for what we do or what we fail to do."

    A Hidden Life & The Concept Of Evil

    A lack of consciousness, inner relationship, and self-value are the seeds of evil. When we dont know ourselves and what drives and also pulls us we’re far more likely to live a thoughtless and ‘automatic’ life where we fall into the ranks. From this place of within ourselves violence and aggression emerges.

    This is a time when there are many blatant acts of mass violence, but I believe there is also a (possible) new form of blatant but covert violence today: microaggressions that express themselves within all relationships. They show themselves in conflicts with our co-workers, romantic partners, politics, etc. To me, it's an experience of “I cannot be with _____, so I will passively or blatantly attack you in some form.” It’s this place of inner relationship, consciousness, and knowing ones shadow/self that some of the richest themes are presented.

    "On Earth we must learn to cope with intolerance, anger and sadness while searching for joy and love. We must not lose our integrity along the way, sacrificing goodness for survival and acquiring attitudes either superior or inferior to those around us. We know that living in an imperfect world will help us to appreciate the true meaning of perfection. We ask for courage and humility before our journey into another life. As we grow in awareness so will the quality of our existence. This is how we are tested. Passing this test is our destiny."

    ~ Michael Newton, Destiny of Souls

    When I was 6 years old after my mother had died, I would walk home from my public school and stop at the corner of my neighborhood, sit on the curb and listen to the students at the Catholic school practice for choir. I remember listening and thinking that my mother would not be home ready with cookies or another snack when I finished my walk. I did end up going to that school and have always loved choir music, it is so soothing but this music is very melancholy as if for a requiem.

    I liked singing requiems, despite their nature. They were epic. (I sang in a choir)

    It is composed by this lady, Saint Hildegard of Bingen. I just learned about her today.

    Hildegard of Bingen (also known as Hildegarde von Bingen, l. 1098-1179 CE) was a Christian mystic, Benedictine abbess, and polymath proficient in philosophy, musical composition, herbology, medieval literature, cosmology, medicine, biology, theology, and natural history. She refused to be defined by the patriarchal hierarchy of the church and, although she abided by its strictures, pushed the established boundaries for women almost past their limits.

    Along with her impressive body of work and ethereal musical compositions, Hildegard is best known for her spiritual concept of Viriditas – “greenness” - the cosmic life force infusing the natural world. For Hildegard, the Divine manifested itself and was apparent in nature. Nature itself was not the Divine but the natural world gave proof of, existed because of, and glorified God. She is also known for her writings on the concept of Sapientia – Divine Wisdom – specifically immanent Feminine Divine Wisdom which draws close to and nurtures the human soul.

    From a young age, she experienced ecstatic visions of light and sound, which she interpreted as messages from God. These visions were authenticated by ecclesiastical authorities, who encouraged her to write her experiences down. She would become famous in her own lifetime for her visions, wisdom, writings, and musical compositions, and her counsel was sought by nobility throughout Europe.

    In 1999 I went to see a wise man in Sweden for some healing, which worked, and in doing so I also asked him for his inspiration. He told me that he'd studied Hildegard von Bingen and then I bought her book in 2000. Very interesting indeed. Not very much heard of these days, Wind. Thank you for posting it as a good reminder.
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    Integrating the Dark side...

    On these forums, I've seen more than a few that do it with great relish...
