Healing Slide – and Swallow-play

I did something I was very scared of doing today:  please see video “Healing Slide.”

The program says: “The Healing Slide is intended to cure us from certainty and security. This is one of doctor Carsten Höller’s creations at the Henie Onstad Museum, “The Slide produces a sense of loss of control and an opportunity”, as he says himself, “to experience an emotional state that is a unique condition somewhere between delight and madness.”

It took some time before I pluck up my courage, as I was terribly afraid – but I did it!  and he is quite right – “state between pleasure and madness” is right. When I reached the other end, my brain convinced me that I had twisted around at least three – four times – but it was just one long turn. And what happened in the brain was amazing to me  – and it was probably also contributing that I was terribly afraid  and ignored the fear 🙂 🙂 :).

I felt 20 kilos lighter afterwards. I felt very proud and happy! And you know what – I have not seen swallows in 10 years at least – I’ve missed them so much! – and when I got out of the museum and walked down the big green fields, there were 5 swallows there – and they had so much fun: they flew ca 30 cm above the ground ,and flew into figure eight and big circles around me and I just stood there and  tears flowed

 

Cloudblissing

These wonderful bird-dancings –

seeing this, I wrote a poem:

 

Cloudblissing

When we cloudbliss,

we are reminding you

of the bliss of flying as

one LOVE

one space of moving and

dancing Joy

An orchestra of improvisation

 

You move with us,

your heart moves

and the world is

shining new this

moment,

 

and this

and this

 

as you realize,

you are really the conductor,

remembering the old choice

to forget who you are

and then

taking flight with us

remembering the joy

that you came from
