TELL THE TRUTH!

This is a woman’s world, yes it IS!

The very word, the Latin word, mater, which forms the words matter or material, of which the entire physical world is constructed of is from is the word for mother!

That is the meaning of the word mater and it forms these words in English: immaterial, material, materiality, maternal, maternity, matricide, matriculant, matriculate, matrilocal, matrimonial, matrimony, matrix, matron, matter.

So, people, this world is TRULY a woman’s world since the feminine nature of the physical world is totally based on matter. Who is it that gives birth to the future generations of all beings and creatures in this world. That is the function of a FEMALE or a WOMAN. Again, truly, this world IS a woman’s world. Men need to stop thinking that only they are IT. They aren’t.

Surely, men are important in this world, but, ultimately, it is the woman who has the power of gestation in order to bring forth all future generations. Man makes his contribution to spark the process , for sure, but it is the female, primarily, who has been given the responsibility of birth and then nurturing and educating  man’s offspring. The lie we’ve been told is that woman was formed from a man is absurd. It shows how men, at the time of the writing of the book of Genesis thought of themselves. Can you imagine the insult that story is to all women? It is pure justification to keep women “in their place” as second class. It’s been that way for thousands of years. Now that’s changing, finally.

Men and women are equal, being different only in physical, emotional and spiritual structure. Nothing more, nothing less. They are BOTH important to the game of life. It’s time men treated women much, much better than we see in this world in 2018. Women still have not really been appreciated for their very being. It’s time that we recognize that the physical world is our MOTHER. We live in and come from MOTHER NATURE.  Without the MOTHER we have nothing. NOTHING! Except the dominating, active forces. We also need the receptive, passive forces, too. Without the receptive or passive forces there would nothing to hold or receive the active force. NOTHING. Without the physical form we remain in the purely invisible world of potential. However, that potential needs to be expressed, from the Latin root exprimere which means to press out. Physical life is the expression of the feminine force which received the masculine push towards outer, physical expression.

 

This Is A Woman’s World

Cher

 

I’m dancin’ solo
In the dark on the club floor
I need to let it go
Shake it off stop thinkin’ ’bout you

I lose myself in the beat of the drum
Try, try, tryin’ to forget what you done done
But honey this is a battle that you haven’t won

Torn up, busted, taken apart
I’ve been broken down
Left with a broken heart
But I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world
Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world

Said I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

Love hurts, your lies, they cut me
But now your words don’t mean a thing
I don’t give a damn if you ever love me

‘Cause it don’t matter I’m movin’ on
Go-gonna lose myself in the beat of the drum
‘Cause honey this is a battle that you haven’t won

Torn up, busted, taken apart
I’ve been broken down
Left with a broken heart

But I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world
Tell the truth

This is a woman’s world
Said I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world
Tell the truth

This is a woman’s world
Said I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

All the women in the world
Stand up come together now
This is a woman’s world

Everybody in the club
Stand up come together now
This is a woman’s world

All the women in the world
Stand up come together now
This is a woman’s world

Everybody in the club
Stand up come together now
This is a woman’s world

Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world
Tell the truth

This is a woman’s world
Said I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above

Said I’m stronger

Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

TELL THE TRUTH!

O cómico Chico Anísio

Justino Veríssimo de Santo Cristo
Deputado Federal de Pernambuco

 

Político típico do Brasil

 

O político norte-americano? I-g-u-a-l.

A única diferença?

A língua, a cultura e a maneira de explorar a maioria.

Hoje em día, 2018, os políticos dos dois países, o Brasil, brasa e arrasa, e os U.S.A., usa e abusa, tem táticas diferentes para disfarçar e abafar a verdade. Fazem tudo para aparentar que trabalham pelo bem de todos.

 

Como Luis Gonzaga cantava:

“Que mentira, que lorota boa!”

Este ano 2018, vai entrar uma nova safra de políticos, principalmente um novo Presidente.

 

Vai mudar algo?

Só o Povo sabe se vai.

 

Vote em João Ninguém Faz Nada.

O melhor candidato na história do Brasil!

Pelo menos, ele vai mudar o país de uma vez para todas!

 

Que mentira, que lorota boa!

Que mentira, que lorota boa!

 + + +

Lorota Boa!

Dei u’a carrera num cabra qui mexeu c’a Maroquinha
Cumeçou na Mata Grande e acabou na Lagoinha!
Curri mais de sete légua, carregado cumo eu vinha
Pois trazia na cabeça um balaio cheio de galinha

Oh, oh, oh! (2x)
Qui mintira qui lorota boa (2x)

Certa noite muito escura atirei de brincadeira
Espaiei dezesseis chumbo cum a minha atiradeira
No momento ia passando quinze patos no terreiro
Qui cairam fulminado, oi qui tiro mais certeiro

Oh, oh, oh! (2x)
Qui mintira qui lorota boa (2x)

Uma coisa aqui no Rio qui me chamou atenção
Foi ver a facilidade qui se toma condução
Todo mundo confortave, seja em trem ou gostosão
E os tais de trocadores, qui amáveis que eles são

Oh, oh, oh! (2x)
Qui mintira qui lorota boa (2x)

Vou contar agora um caso qui astur dia assucedeu
Minha sogra tá de prova que tal fato aconteceu
Uma cobra venenosa viu a véia e mordeu
Mais inveis da minha sogra foi a cobra que morreu

Oh, oh, oh! (2x)
Qui mintira qui lorota boa (2x)

O meu primo Zé Potoca mente tanto qui faiz dó
Me contou qui pegou água, inrolô e deu um nó
Qui mintira mais danada, qui conversa mais à toa
Dá nó n’água né pussive, é lorota e das boa

Oh, oh, oh! (2x) 

Let’s Face The Music And Dance

1936 = 2018

Pay attention, observe, listen well

 

There may be trouble ahead
But while there’s moonlight and music and love and romance
Let’s face the music and dance

Before the fiddlers have fled
Before they ask us to pay the bill and while we still have the chance
Let’s face the music and dance

Soon we’ll be without the moon, humming a different tune and then
There may be teardrops to shed
So while there’s moonlight and music and love and romance
Let’s face the music and dance, dance
Let’s face the music and dance

 

 

After Edith Piaf’s original version, this is the GREATEST version of La Vie En Rose I have ever heard!

 

La Vie En Rose

 

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voilà le portrait sans retouche
De l’homme auquel j’appartiens
Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose
Il me dit des mots d’amour
Des mots de tous le jours
Et ça me fait quelque chose
Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause
C’est lui pour moi
Moi pour lui
Dans la vie
Il me l’a dit, l’a juré pour la vie
Et dès que je l’aperçois
Alors je sens en moi, mon coeur qui bat
When he takes me in his arms
And whispers love to me
Everything’s lovely
It’s him for me and me for him
All our lives
And it’s so real what I feel
This is why
Et dès que je l’aperçois
Alors je sens en moi, mon coeur qui bat
La vie
La vie en rose, la vie en rose
Ohh, la vie
La vie en rose
La vie en rose, la vie en rose
La vie en rose, la vie en rose
La vie en rose, la vie en rose
La vie en rose, la vie en rose
Je t’aime voir toujours

 

 

Eu, nos anos 80, cantava, Menino Veneno. Sou gay, então, por que não?

Menina Veneno, foi lançado em 14 de fevereiro de 1983.

Este video é de 2009(?)

 

Meia noite no meu quarto
Ela vai subir
Ouço passos na escada
Vejo a porta abrir
Um abajur cor de carne
Um lençol azul
Cortinas de seda
O seu corpo nu

Menina veneno
O mundo é pequeno
Demais pra nós dois
Em toda cama que eu durmo
Só dá você, só dá você
Só dá você!
Yeh! Yeh! Yeh! Yeh!

Seus olhos verdes
No espelho
Brilham para mim
Seu corpo inteiro
É um prazer
Do princípio ao sim

Sozinho no meu quarto
Eu acordo sem você
Fico falando pras paredes
Até anoitecer

Menina veneno
Você tem um jeito
Sereno de ser
E toda noite
No meu quarto
Vem me entorpecer
Me entorpecer!
Me entorpecer!
Yeh! Yeh! Yeh! Yeh!

Menina veneno
O mundo é pequeno
Demais pra nós dois
Em toda cama que eu durmo
Só dá você, só dá você
Só dá você!
Yeh! Yeh! Yeh! Yeh!

Meia noite no meu quarto
Ela vai surgir
Eu ouço passos na escada
Eu vejo a porta abrir

Você vem não sei de onde
Eu sei, vem me amar
Eu nem sei qual o seu nome
Mas nem preciso chamar

Menina veneno
Você tem um jeito
Sereno de ser
E toda noite
No meu quarto
Vem me entorpecer
Me entorpecer!
Me entorpecer!
Yeh! Yeh! Yeh! Yeh!

Menina veneno
Menina veneno
Yeh! Yeh!
Menina veneno
Menina veneno
Yeh! Yeh!

What would you do to gain access to knowledge prohibited by the few who control everything. 

What sacrifices would you make, to find the answers to your deeper questions about life? 

How far would you go? 

Where would you go? 

What would you do?

If you can’t answer these questions, what are you doing?

Are you serious about your life?

The film, Yentl, is was made before its time. 

It is a glimpse into the future of possibilities never, ever considered in former times. 

Now, it is being questioned and examined and new ways of thinking and being are emerging into the light as never before.

What changes will we see to the world we know in years ahead?

Will humanity even be here in the next century?

And beyond?

A Piece Of Sky

Tell me where
Where is it written
What is it I meant to be?
That I can’t dare…
It all began the day I found..
That from my window I could only see
A piece of sky.
I stepped outside and looked around.
I never dreamed it was so wide
Or even half as high.
The time had come
(Papa, can you hear me?)
To try my wings
(Papa, are you near me?)
And even thought it seemed at any moment I could fall,
I felt the most,
(Papa, can you see me?)
Amazing things,
(Can you understand me?)
The things you can’t imagine
if you’ve never flown at all.
Though it’s safer to stay on the ground,
Sometimes where danger lies
There the sweetest of pleasures are found.
No matter where I go,
There’ll be memories that tug at my sleeve,
But there will also be
More to question, yet more to believe..
Oh tell me where?
Where is the someone who will turn and look at me?
And want to share
My ev’ry sweet-imagined possibility?
The more I live – the more I learn.
The more I learn – the more I realize
The less I know.
Each step I take –
(Papa, I’ve a voice now!) Each page I turn –
(Papa, I’ve a choice now!) Each mile I travel only means
The more I have to go.
What’s wrong with wanting more?
If you can fly – then soar!
With all there is – why settle for
just a piece of sky?
Papa, I can hear you…
Papa, I can see you…
Papa, I can feel you…
Papa, watch me fly!

Papa, Can You Hear Me

PRAYER

Oh God-our heavenly Father.
Oh, God-and my father
Who is also in heaven.
May the light of this
Flickering candle
Illuminate the night the way
Your spirit illuminates my soul.
+ + +
Papa, can you hear me?
Papa, can you see me?
Papa can you find me in the night?
Papa are you near me?
Papa, can you hear me?
Papa, can you help me not be frightened?
Looking at the skies I seem to see
A million eyes which ones are yours?
Where are you now that yesterday
Has waved goodbye
And closed its doors?
The night is so much darker;
The wind is so much colder;
The world I see is so much bigger
Now that I’m alone.
Papa, please forgive me.
Try to understand me;
Papa, don’t you know I had no choice?
Can you hear me praying,
Anything I’m saying
Even though the night is filled with voices?
I remember everything you taught me
Every book I’ve ever read…
Can all the words in all the books
Help me to face what lies ahead?
The trees are so much taller
And I feel so much smaller;
The moon is twice as lonely
And the stars are half as bright…
Papa, how I love you…
Papa, how I need you.
Papa, how I miss you
Kissing me good night…

“Twilight”

Haven’t laughed this hard in a long time
I better stop now before I start crying
Go off to sleep in the sunshine
I don’t want to see the day when it’s dying
She’s a sight to see
She’s good to me
I’m already somebody’s baby
She’s a pretty thing
She knows everything
But I’m already somebody’s baby
You don’t deserve to be lonely
But those drugs you’ve got won’t make you feel better
Pretty soon you’ll find it’s the only
Little part of your life you’re keeping together
I’m nice to you
I could make it through
But you’re already somebody’s baby
I could make you smile
If you stayed a while
But how long will you stay with me, baby?
                                 ~
Because your candle burns too bright
Well I almost forgot it was twilight
Even if I think that you are right
Well I’m tired of being down, I got no fight
You’re wonderful
And it’s beautiful
I’m already somebody’s baby
And if I went with you
I’d disappoint you too
Well I’m already somebody’s baby
Already somebody’s baby

 

 

Words are too poor to describe the absolutely beautiful and exquisite rendition
of Mona Lisa as sung by Nat King Cole.  Thanks Mr. Cole!  You’re the greatest!

Mona Lisa

 

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa
Men have named you
You’re so like the lady with the mystic smile
Is it only ’cause you’re lonely
They have blamed you
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile

Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there, and they die there
Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art

[Instrumental Interlude]

Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there, and they die there
Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa

— sung by Nat King Cole

 

Here is a video of Nat King Cole singing Mona Lisa.  Although not as nicely recorded as
the above rendition it still requires a look at it to see Mr. Cole as he was in real life. 
Mr. Cole we will always miss you and your voice. Incredible!
