The Dance of the Creator



“Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the creator. Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on. On many occasions when I am dancing, I have felt touched by something sacred. In those moments, I felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists. 

I become the stars and the moon. I become the lover and the beloved. I become the victor and the vanquished. I become the master and the slave. I become the singer and the song. I become the knower and the known. I keep on dancing then it is the eternal dance or creation. The creator and creation merge into one wholeness of joy. I keep on dancing…and dancing…and dancing. Until there is only…the dance.”

Thời Thanh Xuân Sẽ Qua



Em nhìn anh,
Mình bật cười bên nhau
Lắng nghe đàn chim đã về trên mái nhà
Một mai mình già đi
Hàm răng thưa, nụ cười thật nhăn nheo
Chúng ta sẽ về đâu hỡi a?!

Về quê a đi e ah,
Vùng ngoại ô cách rất xa
Ba mẹ a ngày xưa cũng ở đấy
Đồi xanh thơm mát những lá trà
Trong lành hát những khúc ca
Hương chiều quê, nghe lúa thơm tình ta

A sẽ xây ta một căn nhà
Trước sân trồng thêm rau cà
Ở đằng sau, mình nuôi thêm hồ cá

E tưới hoa bên bờ sông nhà
Đom đóm lung linh màn đêm yên bình
Ta dạo thuyền quanh,
Đom đóm bay thật nhanh.

Chorus:
Rồi khi hoàng hôn e và a, ta ra ngoài hiên nhìn trời mây êm
Cắm thêm bình hoa
Và thêm chút bánh trà
Bật lên tình ca Ngô Thuỵ Miên
Đôi ta thường nghe những ngày hè vô tư
Nào cầm tay a,
Mời e nhảy với a!
Nào ta cùng xoay la la la
Xoay theo điệu vang (valse)
Xoay cha cha cha
Da da di da
Da da da di da




Photograph




Loving can hurt, loving can hurt sometimes
But it's the only thing that I know
When it gets hard, you know it can get hard sometimes
It is the only thing that makes us feel alive

We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
And time's forever frozen still

So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer 'til our eyes meet
You won't ever be alone, wait for me to come home

Loving can heal, loving can mend your soul
And it's the only thing that I know, know
I swear it will get easier,
Remember that with every piece of you

Hm, and it's the only thing we take with us when we die
Hm, we keep this love in this photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts were never broken

And time's forever frozen still
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer 'til our eyes meet
You won't ever be alone

And if you hurt me
That's okay baby, only words bleed
Inside these pages you just hold me
And I won't ever let you go
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home

You can fit me
Inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen
Next to your heartbeat where I should be
Keep it deep within your soul

And if you hurt me
Well, that's okay baby, only words bleed
Inside these pages you just hold me
And I won't ever let you go

When I'm away, I will remember how you kissed me
Under the lamppost back on Sixth street
Hearing you whisper through the phone,
"Wait for me to come home."
