While I was filming Erika, I felt like when I was with Jake, or with my brother few weeks later, or even like with my family that I filmed for the Rivers: I couldn’t understand them.
neither what I saw nor what I heard. and when you film … that’s tough!
and I had an ominous feeling of being in this situation of “separation”. and at the same time, something else was emerging. Which simply continued to snatch me up and bring me back to these moving picture, these beings. finally I believe that these last few months allows me to highlight the difference between the thought and the mind. and I just realized that between them, there is magic. the magic within each human being. beings that we no longer think “objectively” but that we “live” subjectively.
like mirrors of the soul, troubled only by the assault of my thoughts. magic … really?
it overwhelmes me to listen to a woman whose dreams have such materiality, existence. to allow yourself to do it, seems completely crazy to me, and to share it even more. I had read in “She”, Robert Johnson’s book about the myth of Psyche, that dreams may not have reality in a certain kind of life and have one in another. if you have a nightmare or make a wonderful dream “it happened”… to you.
it inspires me.
I remember Shivam’s words last year describing Erika in this way “she is complex, and social” and I was moved nonetheless because it takes a lot of love to know someone as well, without keeping her captive of a definition. to tell without defining, that too is magic!
underneath, you will find the song that has been dressing Erika during the video. Trollabundin (singer Eivor’s version) was performed by Lily Anne Bonny, at Spirit Horse. during the closing circle. and we were just so mesmerized! this is a genuine a capella recording for Erika and us all. GRATITUDE lily!
here are the amazing lyrics translated from this ancient Feroe Ireland song :
Spellbound I am, I am
The wizard has enchanted me, enchanted me
Spellbound deep in my soul, in my soul
In my heart burns a sizzling fire, a sizzling fire
shall i leave you with Yeshe Tzogjel, the female Buddha, “odd but beautiful”? (nb : the monk who trained and blessed Erika is Ngak’chang Rinpoche)
Peace and Love to you all
