Sunday Soul – Meva Bella Mare – May 12th 2013

“ Do you love your mother if you hate your father? Listen carefully. When you love somebody very much, do you exclude others from that love? If you really love your mother, don’t you also love your father, your aunt, your neighbour, your servant? Don’t you have the feeling of love first, and then the love of someone in particular? When you say, “I love my mother very much”, are you not being considerate of her? Can you then give her a lot of meaningless trouble? And if you are considerate of your mother, are you not also considerate of your brother, your sister, your neighbour? Otherwise you don’t really love your mother; it is just a word, a convenience. ”
— Krishnamurti

    The words meva bella mare translate from the Catalan into “My beautiful mother” and it is the etymology of each of these words which lead me to choose them for this month’s transmission.

    Meva comes from the Ottoman Turkish word meyve, or mive meaning fruit, literally, and opens a discussion of the product of one’s work or growth being that person’s fruit in essence. What’s truly mine is what I have done, who I really am, and how I have grown or changed and how that is evident in my actions. The possessive idea of “mine” is often elaborated upon selfishly or otherwise, but what belongs to me shows on my face, and is in action in my heart always.

    Bella is simply “beautiful” or fair. The name Isabella is a synonym for this word.

    Mare is an interesting word. It is the female horse, very similar to the French word for the sea and mother, it is also the name of the broad, dark areas of the moon, as well as a German incubus or demon. Not a simple word to write off, it depends entirely on what you mean to say.

    The beauty of our growth and our works is certainly a life giving ocean, it is the mother of our demons, and also that sea is the mother of our beauty. The relationship can nourish both love as well as suffering. It isn’t lost on me that the denuding of the idea of motherhood on mother’s day is a pretty lame thing to do, but the question arises and takes shape as a tribute, or a set of keys to unlock the shackles of blame, resentment, self pity and even cliche. My mother is indeed beautiful, and I love her. I embellished her tale, and spoke of women and mothers in general in a sweet a tone, as approving a voice, as well as with a violence of internal and external critique as possible. I wanted to travel to the sea and wade out into the waters and voice everything that came to me.

    Attendance was lovely, and dialog was rich. We rose and fell like the breathing of the music itself. I know it’s a lot to ask to stay up all night listening, but I always imagine you dancing, thinking, singing along, making out, and then sleeping until your apparatus goes to sleep and the connection is broken – It’s either that or your attention span is just very short, or you only like it when I sing, or you don’t like it when I sing, or whatever it is… I’m just glad you come, and go, and return to me.

    I attempted to create a tapestry which could hold my devotion, my gratitude, my love and my rage. I wanted to sing songs of love and light, as well as throwing a rock, and offering a little tickling too. Decidedly non sexual, though sadly I guess I overlooked that vintage subject, I wanted to look into the heart of a resource and show beauty even in fault, or failure. I wanted to simply let the waters swell and then release them. My gendered pronouns get confused, and my generalizations are many, but the layers and depth I hope at least radiate my gratitude and love for you.
