Descobri este poema há uns anos, através do filme de Jordon Scott (filha de Ridley Scott) para o lançamento do perfume Prada, com a participação da modelo canadense Daria Werbowy.
Tudo no filme é envolvente: o ambiente urbano, a postura serena e elegante da modelo, os outfits que vão surgindo (em especial o vestidinho com "beijos"), o clube de dança >>> ai o ambiente!, a cena do táxi e o jazz a acompanhar tudo isso! Transpira, feminilidade e é de feminilidade que trata o poema que ela vai citando e lendo ao longo do vídeo: "Thunder, Perfect Mind", poema misterioso dos manuscritos gnósticos de Nad Hammadi, no Egipto.
Recorro muitas vezes ao poema quando necessito de reforço inspirador! Provavelmente já conhecem, mas não resisto a partilhar. Espero que gostem.
I discovered this poem a few years ago, through the film Jordon Scott (Ridley Scott's daughter) to launch the Prada scent, with the participation of the Canadian model DariaWerbowy. Everything in the film is evolving: the urban environment, composed and elegant model, the outfits that emerge (especially the dress with "kisses"), the dance club>>>> the environment over there!, The scene of the taxi and all that jazz! It sweats, femininity and womanhood thatit is the poem that she will read over and citing the video: "Thunder, Perfect Mind.", mysterious oem of the gnostic manuscripts of Nad Hammadi in Egypt.
I Often read the poem when needing inspiring reinforcement! You probably already know it but I can't resist sharing. I hope you enjoy.
[I was sent forth from the power,
and I have come to those who reflect upon me,
and I have been found among those who seek after me.
Look upon me, you who reflect upon me,
You who are waiting for me, take me to yourselves.
- And do not banish me from your sight.
- And do not make your voice hate me, nor your hearing.
- Do not be ignorant of me anywhere or any time. Be on your guard!
- Do not be ignorant of me.
- For I am the first and the last.
- I am
and the daughter.
- I am the members of my mother.
- I am the barren one
- and many are her sons.
- I am she whose wedding is great,
- and I have not taken a husband.
- I am the midwife and she who does not bear.
- I am the solace of my labor pains.
- I am the bride and the bridegroom,
- and it is my husband who begot me.
- I am the mother of my father
- and the sister of my husband
- and he is my offspring.
- I am the slave of him who prepared me.
- I am the ruler of my offspring.
- But he is the one who begot me before the time on a birthday.
- And he is my offspring in (due) time,
- and my power is from him.
- I am the staff of his power in his youth,
- and he is the rod of my old age.
- And whatever he wills happens to me.
- I am the silence that is incomprehensible
- and the idea whose remembrance is frequent.
- I am the voice whose sound is manifold
- and the word whose appearance is multiple.
- I am the utterance of my name.
- Why, you who hate me, do you love me,
- and hate those who love me?
- You who deny me, confess me,
- and you who confess me, deny me.
- You who tell the truth about me, lie about me,
- and you who have lied about me, tell the truth about me.
- You who know me, be ignorant of me,
- and those who have not known me, let them know me.
- For I am knowledge and ignorance.
- I am shame and boldness.
- I am shameless; I am ashamed.
- I am strength and I am fear.
- I am war and peace.
- Give heed to me.
- I am the one who is disgraced and the great one.]
