CONTACTING THE DEAD: DOES IT HELP OR HINDER THE GRIEVING PROCESS?
SPHOTA: “That from which the meaning bursts forth”
In Hindu linguistics “sphota” relates to the theory and understanding of what words and phrases represent when someone reads them and relates them on a deeper level. It is the ‘light-bulb effect’, that ‘Ah-ha!’ moment of understanding aspects of words, sentences, mantras etc.
MERAKI: “The love one puts forth into something. The creative essence of putting yourself into your work”
In Greek, “merkati” represents the passion and soul one puts into their work.
Sphota-Meraki.com represents the drive and passion individuals feel in making change in their personal life as well as putting it forth out into the world. It is that moment of clarity before, during and after when one puts their whole essence into creating something anew.
This is that process….that moment of thought, turned into reality. The belief of doing what you love and how it enhances others in the process. Continue reading “SPHOTA-MERAKI – 2019”
Was hoping to update a few days back but I was in Corpus with my daughter and her boyfriend welcoming into existence my grandson Isaik Nicholas Hadley who was born 1/18/2018 at 12:55AM. We were initially told that he may be born with either intestinal blockage or a nerve disease, either of which may have involved surgery. Fortunately all is well as of today and hopefully he will be home tomorrow.
I will be updating first week of Feb. I will be sending out a group email pertaining to free advertisement and classifieds.
Until then….welcome Isaik!!!!
At this moment we are not doing any shows.
We plan on working our way to doing more shows in and around Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Corpus Christi either later this year or in 2020.
At the moment you can check out the few items we put up each week on ebay.
BETRAY MY SECRETS
This band is no longer together but I found them while doing search on another band associated with this band, SHIVA IN EXILE as well as a band called SpiRitual. Formed in Germany in 1997 . Favorite song from them is “From the Goddess” which is a heavier version and a mix of “We All Come From the Goddess” from Moving Breath (YouTube) and the “Witches Chant”, which I remember from the band Inkubus Sukkubus (YouTube)
IN HEARTS WAKE – (Website) (Facebook) (Twitter)
Band out of Australia. Fell in love with their Earthwalker CD which came out in 2014. Really looking forward to seeing them when they come to the states in 2017.
TIMES OF GRACE
Another band that is no longer together and only put one album out. Original singer for KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and is now re-singing for them. This was one of the side albums before going back to Killswitch Engage. Had an opportunity to interview him when he was in Times of Grace. Great vocalist.
THE HEALING (Bandcamp) (Facebook)
Actually just found this band today when I was looking up links for previous bands listed above. Their “Elevate” CD came out earlier this year. From Canada. Really enjoying this first listen to them.
