“Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici

 

The Fifth of November

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament
All up alive.
Threescore barrels, laid below,
To prove old England’s overthrow.
But, by God’s providence, him they catch,
With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
A stick and a stake
For King James’s sake!
If you won’t give me one,
I’ll take two,
The better for me,
And the worse for you.
A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to wash it down,
And a jolly good fire to burn him.
Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

English Folk Verse (c.1870)

“In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.”

— from the film V For Vendetta [2005]

“I know about sick people.

We all exaggerate a little.

Our pains aren’t so terrible.

I believe . . .

. . .

I was stupid and lazy.”

— Bernadette, from the film The Song of Bernardette [1943]

“Behold, my beloved spake, and said unto me,

Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

For,lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing

of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in

our land;

The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with

the tender grape give a good smell.

Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.”

— Song of Solomon 2:10-13

“Go to the Spring, drink of the Water and Wash there!

No, not the River!

The Spring yonder!

Eat of the Plants

Drink of the Spring and Wash there.”

[Capitalization is my own, for contemplation]

Hint: The quote above should be read in a metaphysical, symbolic way.

1 There is no past, there is no future. They don’t exist, except in the mind, so, remain here, present, wherever you are, always in the present. Be present in mind, soul and, especially, heart.

2 The time is always now, except when you forget when and where you are! Remember, be here and now.

3 Wake up at the moment you can, when you are not here, when you are not in the now and return to the present, because, the only real time is now. Another time does not exist! Time is only an experience, an illusion. The past is gone, and the future is our hopes and/or desires.

4 Go forward in the direction of your dreams. Learn and do only what is necessary to get to the goal you desire. Move forward and be, always, in the now.

5 After you achieve your goal, keep going. Have new goals and new directions, no matter how small.

6 Life always leads the way. Time will tell you when you arrive at your destination, and experience, along the way, will give you the tools, so that you have what you need to accomplish the tasks you need to accomplish, no matter how small.

7 Life is an eternal journey. You are an eternal being, not your physical body, but you, the real you, inwardly, is who you are, eternal and always here, despite the outer appearances. We work in an outer world which is illusion to do the work Eternity needs us to do.

 

Do you know where you are going in Eternity?

 

–Farley

Think, know and experience.  Add your thoughts to my blog.  I want to know what people are thinking in their individual endeavour through this experience of life which I call the song of life.  Sing your song, sing it loud and let others know who you are, where you are going and how you hope to get there.  Remember life is a journey not a destination, although it is nice to get someplace in life and rest for a while but then you have to continue your journey, otherwise, life will stagnate and then you really will “die”.  Remember life is about living.  Live each moment fully and consciously.  Know what you are doing and why.  To me life has a to have meaning and a purpose and lessons to learn to evolve spiritually, just like we are evolving physically.  As above, so below.
