Our deepest fear…

Open Book On Wood Background - Photo © Robert Marfin /“As I interpret the Course, ‘our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”

You must learn one thing…

Open Book On Wood Background - Photo © Robert Marfin /

“When your eyes are tired
the world is tired also.

When your vision has gone
no part of the world can find you.

Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes 
to recognize its own.

There you can be sure
you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your womb

The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.

You must learn one thing: 
the world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.”

David Whyte, Sweet Darkness, in: The House of Belonging (1996)

Nous étions une victoire qui ne prendrait jamais fin…

Open Book On Wood Background - Photo © Robert Marfin /« Nous regardions couler devant nous l’eau grandissante. Elle effaçait d’un coup la montagne, se chassant de ses flancs maternels. Ce n’était pas un torrent qui s’offrait à son destin mais une bête ineffable dont nous devenions la parole et la substance. Elle nous tenait amoureux sur l’arc tout-puissant de son imagination. [...]. Adoptés par l’ouvert, poncés jusqu’à l’invisible, nous étions une victoire qui ne prendrait jamais fin. »

Alexander Tsymbalyuk – VERDI – Silva’s Aria (Ernani) – Live 2007

Video (2007, 6 min) – The Cabaletta starts at 3:18

Concert of the winners of Tchajkovsky contest 2007
Alexander Tsymbalyuk (Ukraine) – 1st price
Giuseppe Verdi: Ernani (1844) , Aria and Cabaletta of Don Ruy Gomez de Silva (bass)
“Che mai vegg’io!” / “Infelice!… E tuo credevi” / “L’offeso onor, signori” / “Infin che un brando vindice”


Che mai vegg’io! Nel penetral più sacro

di mia magione, presso a lei che sposa
esser dovrà d’un Silva,
due seduttori io scorgo?
Entrate, olà, miei fidi cavalieri.
(Entrano cavalieri e famigli, Giovanna ed Ancelle.)
Sia ognun testimon del disonore,
dell’onta che si reca al suo signore.
(fra sé)

(Infelice!… e tuo credevi
sì bel giglio immacolato!…
Del tuo crine fra le nevi
piomba invece il disonor.
Ah! perché l’etade in seno
giovin core m’ha serbato!
Mi dovevan gli anni almeno
far di gelo ancora il cor.)

(a Carlo ed Ernani)

L’offeso onor, signori,
inulto non andrà.
Scudieri, I’azza a me, la spada mia…
I’antico Silva vuol vendetta, e tosto…

Infin che un brando vindice
resta al vegliardo ancora;
saprà l’infamia tergere
o vinto al suol cadrà!
Me fa tremante il subito
sdegno che mi divora…
cercando il sen del perfido
la man non tremerà.
