THE WINDS OF SHIVA ARE THE DANCE OF HIS COSMIC HAIR

Art work, work of art, inspired by the sacred, a high spirituality and sacred geometrical proportions, the "Shiva-Nataraj" express the drunkenness of the Cosmic Dance with in the background the depth of an immutable bliss, eternal, infinite.

For the Indian artist, for the Nation - Mother India - and the soul of Indian people (hinduism, with its secular spirituality and sacred scriptures profoundly monotheist), Lord Shiva-Natarajan is not at all an idol, but a divine aspect of the creative joy of the Lord of the Universe, Master of the World with all its Energies and Powers.

In this Universe, everything - and the Universe itself - is included in a single line giving birth to a quantified multiplicity of lines and twisted threads, though invisible and without dimension. This line is everywhere and nowhere, as she is only a gush taking place in a point without dimension which is the interface and the link between the Infinite and the Finite.  

Along the invisible threads of energy are running Time-Space and Light in all their relative dimensions (11). Light, Space and Time are the Three Heads of the Being ... "entered in existence" (Elohim). The "Point-Line" (Ha Shem) is the Immanent Presence of the Infinite in everything and beside and beyond of everything who exists and not exists = אהיה אשר אהיה  "Ehie-Ascher-Ehie" 

"THREADS"  Dance solo and choreography : Rina Schenfeld. Music : Igor Wakhevitch (Festival of Israel, Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv, Haifa ) Paris, Theatre de la Ville. Recorded in Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv and Paris. The music of "Threads" is on Igor Wakhevitch album "Let's Start", released by EMI

 

ISSUED FROM AN INITIAL POINT :  A LINE. A SINGLE LINE.

FOUR DIFFERENT STAGES OF AN INITIAL LINE :    1) PURE ENERGY : RADIATION ;   2) BRIGHTNESS : RADIANCE ;   3) FORMING : INFLUENCE ; 4) FINAL ACHIEVEMENT : CONCRETE PLAN / ELEMENTS / MATTER / BODY.

FOUR WORLDS :  "Atziluth" EMANATION (threads in vibration, essential waves, primordial waters) ; "Briah" CREATION (Master Plan) ; "Yetzirah" FORMING (genesis, signatures behind the forms, intermediary condition between abstract and concrete, structuration of the cosmic energy) ; "Assiah" RESISTANCE (strenght, opposition, stamina, physical action, concrete elements)

EVERYTHING COMING OUT FROM "THERE IS NOTHING" אין (EIN).  

THE OWN "SELF-RESTRICTION" - tsimtsum - or "CONTRACTION"  OF THE INFINITE GIVES "REALITY" TO AN EMPTINESS WITHOUT BEGINNING, WITHOUT END : "NO END" אין סוף (EIN SOPH

EXISTENCE AND REALITY ARE NOTHING ELSE THAN A PRIMORDIAL "THERE IS NOTHING", AN IMPENETRABLE MYSTERY ....

... WHICH IS A POINT SURROUNDED BY AN ENDLESS LIGHT DARKER THAN THE NIGHT : "THERE IS NOTHING, LIGHT- WITHOUT LIMITS"  אין סוף אור (EIN SOPH AUR) = 414 = 45 = 9

The Line or Will-Power of YHWH-ELOHIM though crossing and fulfilling everything, material or non-material, as an arrow who hits the centre of a target (the material plan) ... end up right in the midst of a Nation who has for essential mission to take up the challenge and great commitement (in the name of all the humanity) to live according the Divine Presence and accept its Rules in all parts of the being and existence.

After Mount Horeb at the Sinai desert, as the Torah was revealed directly to the Jewish people through Moses by YHVH ... from now the Divine Name does not wear anymore the name of some attribute or aspect, or a particular power of the Divinity ; with the Torah and Mount Horeb's revelation given to the world, the Power of Creation is revealed and reveal itself to the entire world that He is the "Place" : "MAQOM". The Creator is a Place. Even if the Place is everywhere, the Place has to be somewhere in particular. That Place will be obsviously the most dangerous one, the place of human crisis by excellence. Its the Place where the Immortal Fire challenge directly the counsciousness of the whole humanity: "Can you live in my Presence, not in the heaven, but with me right in the middle of the Nation which is my Place ? ... are human beings ready to accept that I've seen a Particular Place to be my Land and my Kingdom upon earth ?"

On the summit of Mount Horeb in the Sinai : "What is your Name ?" asked Moses to the burning bush; the answer is extraordinary and this answer is a stunning revelation: אהיה אשר אהיה   "I AM WHAT I AM"

The "Moutain" (the Cosmic Being) is the Place ; the Torah (the Law) is the Place ; the Alliance is the Place, the circumcision implementing the signature of the Infinite in the human nervous system, introducing directly in the metabolism the 8 and all its inner degrees and stairs above and beyond the nature's limits (7 representing the global frame in which the cosmic "Nature" is acting, the limited Nature, one of the two heads) and layers of ignorance around the soul represented by the foreskin of the man. 

Incision in humanity's flesh: the mystery of the "blood transmutation" is a change of vision and functionning in the human brain and its structure ; the opening of a secrete door in the soul itself: the "passage" through the "50th Door", introducing the human limited consciousness to another level and paradigm, directly in the Light and Pure Energy of the Life-Force חי

"Now on the journey, at the night's resting-place, the Lord came in his way (Moses) and would have put him to death. Then Tsiporah took a sharp stone, and cutting off the skin of her son's private parts, and touching his feet with it, she said, "Truly you are a husband of blood to me." (Exodus 4:24-25)"

Mount Horeb : the Rock of Transmutation. Landmark in humanity's evolution. Milestone on mankind long march toward the highest Point of the Being, the summit of the Moutain. Its also a particular place in the brain that has to be activated. 

MAQOM: its not merely a geographical place ; its a particular place in the human body as well. "The Place" is ALLIANCE. An Alliance having its place in the throat and the brain (circumcision of the brain is another profound disclosure, a real tearing of the veil) of those among the human beings who already understand that their own life and existence "in thought and word and deed" is the Kingdom and  this Kingdom the Place of the Creator in the holiness of the reproductive force in the human being, particularly in the brain, a secrete cave. This Force (so called "sexual") has to be elevated, ascending as the light emerging from the oil which is in the oil lamp when the triple wick is lit : the "oil" being the coarse sexual energy of the human being (the wick being the nervous system) from which has to be extracted the essential light (L.V.X.), the subtle energy and essence of the LIFE-POWER חי  

First scene of "This" : the space-time (the stage of the great opera-theatre) where everything will take place. All the story : who ? why ? how ? where ? what ? ... "the Other" is myself, the Human Called Being.  National Opera of Paris (Palais Garnier)"THIS-THAT-THE OTHER"  (a trilogy about "HUMAN CALLED BEING": the trilogy giving place to a final pentalogy : "The Beginning - This-That-the Other - the End"  Choreography Carolyn Carlson, Music Igor Wakhevitch.

The Real Kingdom of the Creator is the Man. The Dancer. The "Primordial Man" (Ish) was created Pure Dance: a Dance of Energy trigerring Sound and Rythm. "Dance and Music" are transposed as "Time and Space", unified by Light, which is pure Rythm, cyclical sequences ruled by the Sacred Numbers. These Numbers are the Four Holy Creatures.

Above : Olivier Patey, "Premier Danseur", First Dancer of the National Opera of Paris Ballet. Its not the body who creates the dance; its the Dance who creates the body, its instrumental vessel and luminous vehicle through Time-Space: the Eternal Being, the infinite Bliss of its Self-Expression through the Dancer's steps and jumps, leaps and pirouettes ....

Carolyn Carlson on stage performing "This" at the National Opera of Paris (Palais Garnier), music Igor Wakhevitch. Body  balance between air and earth, the finger is pointing in the direction of the Human (called "Being") ...  which is the Line by excellence : This, That, The Other. The Line does not run endlessly in the void, but reverse, bouncing on the mirror of her own "Identity". The four elements are generated by the various rebounds of the energy within limits, the many perimeters of the Nature.

National Opera of Paris (Palais Garnier) "THIS" choreography Caroly Carlson, music Igor Wakhevitch. Opposite directions of the Line and its diagonal derivation: the ladder of the worlds.  A lateral alternance of diagonals - right and left - along the straight vertical central line is a process of the nature to create a circulation of energy which is basically a rotation. As a hieroglyph, Carolyn's body lies on the thin line of her side, feets and arms in opposition directions indication the top and the bottom of everything. Notice Carolyn's eyes looking at her hand and finger. The body is at the same time horizontal and vertical. Back side is hidden. This scenery, opening the story .... symbolize the world. Each figure express a particular energy and natural force, a human character as well.

The Line triggers the beggining of the whirls, based on the Golden Number proportions. On the music of Igor WakhevitchCarolyn Carlson and Larrio Eckson dancing on the immense stage of the "National Opera of Paris" (Palais Garnier) : "THIS-THAT-THE OTHER"

One of the many letters from Carolyn Carlson to Igor. 

CAROLYN CARLSON wonderful "arabesque". Here also, the body is manfesting the invisible lines of the "Cube of Space" with its 22 segments.  Notice how the foot is taking its strenght from the ground, the bouncing energy coming from mother-earth. The infinite energy of the Power of Creation (letter Aleph) generates its equivalent opposition - opposite force -, the force of resistance of the letter TAV. A tiny difference in the potential of energy generated by the resistance of Tav introduce in the entire universe a principle of imperfection who increase as the descent from abstract to concrete is going along ; (from Aleph to Tav and from Tav to Aleph : two scales working simultaneously in opposite direction)

Carved in the rock at a considerable height above the ground, four tombs belonging to the Achaemenid Kings, Darius I, Xerxes, Artaxerxes II and Darius II. World creation of "Human Called Beings" in the effective presence of Her Majesty Farah Palhavi, Empress of Iran. The stage was erected just at the foot of the cliff.  Igor's music played in this very sacred place for Iran history and people was like a powerful memory of a past life when the Jewish people was in exile in the Persian Empire: the majesty of Igor's music and its mystery, magic power in harmony with the nature of the desert and the royal tombs was like an invocation of jewish eternal soul above time and space.
