The Struggle


Will is the power that enables 
conscious, reasoned thought. 
The reality of will and its fundamental power 
is central to Triadic Philosophy. 
We are confronted with mystery always.  
Thinking realistically carves out a space 
within the mystery 
for the consideration of Ethics 
and then enables an Aesthetic response 
that tends toward the beautiful and true. 
We have spent millennia 
locked in largely binary, 
dyadic modes of perception, 
leading to conflict in all areas of existence. 
We have denied the will to determine our destiny. 
We have subordinated values 
to the realm of pricing things. 
And we wonder where we are going. 
Triadic Philosophy demonstrates that 
the lineaments of a positive destiny 
 have been present all along. 
It was always possible to think in threes. 
It was always possible to find a way beyond 
a house divided. 
The proof lies in doing it. 
In this sense doing Triadic Philosophy may be 
the most significant action anyone can take.

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
