He stands where it is steep,
Oh I guess he thinks that he's the very first one,
His hand upon his leather belt now
Like it was the wheel of some big ocean liner.
And she will learn to touch herself so well
As all the sails burn down like paper.
And he has lit the chain
Of his famous cigarillo.
Ah, they'll never, they'll never ever reach the moon,
At least not the one that we're after;
It's floating broken on the open sea, look out there, my friends,
And it carries no survivors.
But lets leave these lovers wondering
Why they cannot have each other,
And let's sing another song, boys,
This one has grown old and bitter.
(Swipe>> if you want it darker) “The blizzard of the world has crossed the threshold / And it’s overturned the order of the soul.” (Leonard Cohen, “The Future”)
“The time is near.” (Revelation 1:2)
It’s hard to imagine a more absurdly literal anti-Christ (ie, one whose every word and action is the opposite of what Jesus would do) than the pathetically obvious Whore-of-Babylon-fornicator to whom the “Christian” fundamentalists have foolishly sold their souls in a venal exchange for worldly power.
“Give me Stalin and St Paul. Give me Christ or give me Hiroshima.” (LC)
For almost 42 months now an anti-Christ has held preeminent power, tweeting hate and deception almost daily (Rev 13:5). The continent of Australia burns (Rev 8:7). A viral pandemic closes in (Rev 9:18)... Time for me to go to the little island of Patmos.
“Take the only tree that’s left, and stuff it up the hole in your culture.” (LC)
You thought I was seeking a secluded haven to safely hide out? Oh, no no no no no. This is ground zero. This is where John, in exile, wrote The Book of Revelation.
“Your servant here, he has been told / to say it clear, to say it cold...” (LC)
I came to give the bad ol’ end to the Good Book a serious re-read, in the cave which Adonai Himself rent open to bring about the Vision. Perhaps a baptism in John’s stream of consciousness allegories might provide some apocalyptic hope. Alas, the shade of the prophet Leonard — whom I saw, there in the cave, suspended over a gaping chasm to Hades — delivered only despair: “I’ve seen the future, brother: it is murder.”
“Hineni, hineni... I’m ready, my Lord.” (LC, “You Want It Darker”)
“Another poet will have to say
how much I love you
I’m too busy now with the Arabian sea
and its perverse repetitions
of white and grey (...)”
~Leonard Cohen (from the poem ‘Another Poet’) #leonardcohenpoetry#leonardcohen

Ti incontro ad un tavolo
Prendo tra le mani il tuo pugno
in un solenne tassì
Mi sveglio solo
con la mia mano nella tua assenza
Ho scritto tutte queste canzoni per te
Ho consumato candele rosse e nere
a forma di uomo e di donna
Ho sposato il fumo
di due piramidi di legno di sandalo.
I set out one night
When the tide was low
There were signs in the sky
But I did not know
I'd be caught in the grip
Of the undertow
Ditched on a beach
Where the sea hates to go
With a child in my arms
And a chill in my soul
And my heart the shape
Of a begging bowl
I just saw the Sonic movie and at last
I came to realize that I gotta go fast
So here's an upbeat tempo for you speedsters.
This might be my fastest verse yet
But honestly it is really no sweat
When you've spent a hundred and ten days on hallelujah.
“Oh, let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love”
Dance Me to the End of Love #leonardcohen

procurando os bloquinhos de Montreal (se olhar com atenção, logo ali na frente, dá pra ver o mural em tributo ao Leonard Cohen, nascido na província de Québec)
Another clue into the extraordinary reveal we will unveil in a few short weeks...Meet my friend Jason. He’s a father of 5 with a heart of #glitter — I say glitter not gold cause Jason is surrounded by a lot of girls and girls as a general rule love the high def luminosity that glitter spreads. Also, Jason is a first class dad. Doesn’t his smile give everything away? ⚡️As soon as I shook his hand I knew what I needed to know. Jason exudes empathy from every pore. The smile, as the sages say, is just a gut check. Excited to take his hand as we build a beauty and Empathy Empire: something central and phenomenal to spread a million x a million particles of light, like a beacon to guide the way in a wayward world. 💥 Jacket by @gap (Oh Canada, it’s really warm); hat by @dodgers (the city of angels). Everything on my body, including all #jewellery and my silk #chakra dress vibrating purple yesterday, the crown chakra, which @sophiegregoiretrudeau wore on the international stage in 2018 (boom!) by yours wholeheartedly @kimsmiley ✨💜💫 Hats off to the crew @globalnewsto ❣️ Running with open arms towards you this morning with so much love in my heart and so much passion pumping through my veins that I may burst into a million particles of #gratitude . ✨✨✨ Thank you to the #dreammakers who are standing behind me and beside me. No matter how many times you get knocked down...Whatever you dream is within your reach. Don’t stop believing. Every overnight success is at least a decade in the making❣️Never stop honouring the power that is within you to make the “impossible” possible. You are the spark of divinity, emulating the highest power (whether you call it G-d or The Universe). I see it; it’s right there in front of me. Go get a mirror and hold it up to your eyes. See?✨Let’s be a beacon of light for the world. Let’s stand strong, grounded, feet on the ground by always looking at the stars. Let’s ignite the universe with beauty and empathy. All For One, One For All, @kimsmiley 🧿🔥👑@empathyempire13 ✨ Hats off to @dreamvision_group — my digital media gurus for dreaming big alongside me and to the sage who stands above me and beside me 🙏
Leonard Cohen // "You live your life as if it’s real... The evidence accumulates that you’re not running the show. You still have to make choices as if you were running the show, but you make your choices with the intuitive understanding that it’s unfolding as it must... And if you can relax in that...if you can even touch it, or if it asserts itself from time to time, then the invincible defeat is transcended."

. “And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind”
