Saiano Monastery

From my window

Today i'll lead You here, my Friends....so, give me your hand...and let's go!

A pic from the car

We are going by, car, that can be 20 min by home...

It's quite a steep way...are you trained? ^_^

 We'll Let the car at the parking place under the rock, and go up to the hill, on foot as this is the Path of Soul (obviously, it goes up!)

The first Miracle is looking us from the Hightest!

Looking down to the Valley

This is a view from the top of the rock, the Marecchia Valley is in her most gracious autumn dress!

Footpaths signs

Well, we'll go right, if you want to come with me...

A view before arriving at the Church

Well, here you can see, from the left side,
-a tower, which they're trying to restore and that will hopefully become a quite place for personal and silent retreats.
-the house of  DOn Osvaldo, the priest who keep wonderfully this peaceful spot for our Souls (really you can feel a nice warm feeling here)
-on the right side, the Church, i think the first one was around 1100 A.C., and it was a little castle , but it was rebuilted of course many times...

For an inside visit to the Church,and the future project of the Tower  my friend...take your time...i'll wait for you here!

Have a nice Sunday!

Composer of the day

Giovanni Pierluigi Da Palestrina 
He was a composer who lived in Rome in the Sixteenth Century, he worked mostly for the Church and created many pieces for Masses and Choirs (Sacred music) , but wrote also Madrigali and Canzonette (profane music)

Palestrina is the name of the town where he was born ( it was used to add this to the first name, as Leonardo "da Vinci" )

Here I propose you one of my favourite pieces, it's a motet for 4 voices (from Motets Book II for 4 voices) Date: 1584.

I was happy to discover and sing , in a Gregorian Choir i was part of, some years ago. I have to say that i really really enjoyed this activity, because during the sessions, i could feel the armony of voices pervading my body and using it as a proper instrments.
I had to stop just because lack of time  ^_^ but never knows, maybe there will be another time.
Actually, i love singing some Sacred songs i know, that is absolutely a beautiful experience, even if alone and spontaneous.

The sport of the Day

Today i wish to share with you some glimpses about the origin of Martial Arts.
  a new spiritual art i’m experimenting, among many many others, is Qigong.

Boddhidarma was the founder of Martial Arts, as  a strong way of purification and elevation throught the martial way of life. This martial “lifestyle” has many different levels and applications, it can be used as an exterior way (like for warriors or Samurai), as  a mental one ( the way to use or control our thoughts) , ore in a spiritual one ( the Awereness over mind, a zen principle).

He codified many expressions for strengthening Monks, at his time ( 6 Century A.C.).
Going from the inside to the outside, we could count Qigong, Thai Chi, and Martial arts like Karate.

As I could enjoy, Qigong is a more static performance, working on the inner flowing of energy and recharging the  Prana.
Thai Chi is a movement selection in total armony, which should create a zen state of mind .
And Karate is the explosive side of energy.
Yang, Jwing-Ming is a famous Master of these arts.

All the movements and tecniques , in each one of these Disciplines, are made while the body keeps a muscular structure which enable it to fight, and grows a good balance in its energetical system. It should be always ready . 
For what? For doing the right thing at the right time!
The relaxation is not “ without tension”, but all the muscles works …really a lot! 

The way of Spirit is not effortless, my dear Monks!

The Book of the Day

The Treehouse (Marije and Ronald Tolman)

Today i suggest you this Illustration Book, it was a wonderful discovery for me!
we could say it's at the mean time a book for a child and for anyone who loves Art.

This could be a nice gift for Christmas.... and moreover, for every kind of language...there are no words at all.

To your heart the translation!

What is inside

What is inside....is this amazing light!
and more i clean this diamond, more it reveils all the others bright shides

.... ^_^

i confess to come out from a very hard moment, and my friends, i'm happily here again, changed and more then ever truly convinced that faith is absence of doubt.
and that experience is our own risk to grow.
well, i absolutely ask to be helped to arrive where my aim is. every moment i ask.

and from that dark moment, i asked more and more loudly... They, the Shining and Enlightened Creatures, was absolutely there.
and they lead me home again.

smile is shining at his best, on my elfic face! and the sun could'nt be brighter today, and now... i feel as  i'm born new. to a new state of consciousness.
