Malta Island - The Blue Grotto

 

 

 

 

Malta Island
==============

It is genuinely beautiful island. The main island of the Republic of Malta. In November a temperature is around 20 degrees centigrade during the day. So very warm to visit what you like.  The countryside has a lot of flat land but its coastline is amazing. Absolutely fantastic rocks shaped in the naturally fabulous way. The Blue Grotto is a good example. I joined in a few short boat trip during my stay in Malta and it was an excellent occasion to see everything from a short distance.  A lot of old „yellow” buildings particularly Valletta, Mdina and Birgu. Malta is blessed with many prehistoric megalithic temples. What does it mean to me ? It means that for some reason it was a special place on Earth and attracted contemporaneous people to live there and leave the signs of their culture up to now. Of course everything is artificially rebuilt but eternal energy still flows in these places. I visited two temples : Tarxien Temples and Hagar Qim Temples. Everything in Malta exceeded all my expectations. If I had been a free man I would have stayed there for at least a few months :-)

Valletta

 

 

 

 

Malta as a country is called the Republic of Malta and is located in the Mediterranean Sea 80 km from Italy and around 300 km from Tunisia and Libya. The country  is made up of number of islands and constitute the Maltese Archipelago. The Republic of Malta covers just 316 square km with a population  around 450 000. The  largest island is Malta /246 square km/. The second largest island is Gozo /67 square km/ Both of them are inhabited. The third inhabited island is tiny Comino /3,5 square km/ . I think so the Maltese Archipelago consist of a dozen islands but most of them are only small rocks. The country is very tiny but exceptionally interesting and engrossing. Its long history is confirmed by many of Neolithic temples. Local people look similar to Moroccan. Maltese society is really multi-ethnic and I always had to put some effort to find Maltese :-) All people can communicate in English even elderly. They probably remember British Empire.  Malta has two official languages: Maltese and English. Malta obtained the independence from British Empire in 1964 but is still a member of British Commonwealth. Valletta is the capital of the Republic of Malta. This very little city /0,8 square km/ is absolutely fascinating and unusual. Of course Malta is the member of the European Union and this fact probably meaningfully decides about Maltese multi-ethnic society. The unemployment is very low around 4%. The biggest island of the Republic of Malta is Malta that is sometimes called Valetta to distinguish the name from country’s name. Most of the population of the country live in Malta Island. The part of the island around Valletta is very densely populated. One town borders with another without a free space. There are a lot of cars and I could see regular traffic jams every day. Malta has an extraordinary architecture and every building and house is …. yellow. It is the colour of Maltese limestone.

VALLETTA
==========
I was very intrigued looking at the pictures of Valetta before my travel to Malta. The panoramic view of Valletta from a distance is fabulous and astonishing. This tiny city is located on the very small peninsula and fully walled. Valletta was a fortress. During my walking tour around the peninsula and along the walls I could see a fantastic upper view of the city, the Mediterranean Sea and beautiful other small peninsulas and bays. I was thinking how Valetta looks inside. The city was built in XVI century according to the grid street plan. It means that streets run at right angles to each other. Contrary to appearances Valetta is not tight inside. There are a lot of narrow beautiful streets. However there are spacious squares and gardens too. Most of the city is free from cars and used only by pedestrians. Additionally looking outside of the city we have panoramic views. At the edge of the city we may visit two twinned beautiful gardens. The Lower Barraka Garden and The Upper Barraka Gardens. Particularly the second one is really exceptional. I find it as the most beautiful place in Valletta. There is a breathtaking panoramic view from this place.

The meal above is very often eaten in England. This one comes from a carvery and has three kinds of roast meet: pork, beef and turkey. There are also cooked vegetables: brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower. Usually we may find on the plate carrot and roast potato. The sauces which I like: cranberry, mint and bread sauce and some mustard.

„Out of the box” is an expression that describes nonconformal, creative thinking.”

 

I found this expression a few months ago. I immediately liked it because  the expression describes very adequately my way of thinking and acting. Most of us live in the democratic countries with a sense of freedom. We think we decide what is going on in our lives. However the most interesting and maybe frightening is that living in tiny, tight mental boxes using implanted without our permission beliefs and being a small cog in the economic machine we still maintain uncritically a full sense of freedom. When we are born our mind is a tabula rasa and as clean as a whistle. We are completely dependent on the external world. We learn lots of positive and useful things, but at the same time we are mentally indoctrinated , at the beginning by our parents.  During the first few years of the life we were placed in the boxes which usually limit us over the whole life. Then we go to school, college or university where our mind is processed constantly in order to become a fitting cog of the economic and social system. Afterwards work, family and procreation. Our society, and the economic system need to be organized, have workforce and procreate. That system created a lot of beautiful things, inventions, masterpieces or scientific systems. When we are not aware that our way of thinking and feeling was shaped by the external environment and the economic system cages and traps us we remain deeply dormant. We don’t have a choice. We have to live in such the world that as mentioned above has and brings a lot of advantages. Our soul incarnating to the terrestrial conditions was fully aware of the necessity to face plenty of challenges. Contrary to appearances it was and still is for our soul very attractive. Some of us have a chance to try jump out of the own mental and economic box. The world is not exactly the same as it was shown us and is showed every day in media. In order to begin to challenge it we need first to become aware of our predicament and being indoctrinated. We don’t have to follow the same way of thinking as most of people around us. We may put into lives our own priorities and values, properly estimate the importance of money, objects and other material goods and build our the highest value that doesn’t result from our location on the social and economic ladder. I mentioned a few times although the slavery was lifted a long time ago its kind still exists. We are the prisoners of the economic system. As participants of the economic system we take a lot of advantages but on the other side we need to be aware of the captivity. It is very difficult to jump out of the economic bondage and only a small amount of people is able to achieve that. If we decide to commence the trial to jump out of our mental boxes we automatically have bigger chance for more convenient placement in the economic system or even jump out of the box ….

Kilka miesiecy temu uslyszalem to wyrazenie i bardzo mi sie spodobalo, gdyz bardzo dobrze ujmuje moj sposob myslenia i dzialania. Czesc z nas zyje w demokrtycznych krajach w poczuciu posiadanej wolnosci decydowania o wielu sprawach naszego zycia. Najciekawsze jest jednak to, ze zyjac w zamknietych ciasnych pudelkach, uzywajac wpojonego nam bez naszej zgody swiatopogladu i bedac trybikiem ekonomicznego systemu, nadal zachowujemy bezkrytyczne poczucie wolnosci. Przychodzac na swiat jestesmy czysci jak lza i zdani na pomoc swiata zewnetrznego.Uczymy sie wielu pozytywnych rzeczy, ale tez podlegamy natychmiastowej mentalnej obrobce, najpierw przez rodzicow. W pierwszych kilku latach zostajemy mentalnie i emocjonalnie umieszczeni w swoich pudelkach, ktore czesto ograniczaja nas przez cale zycie. Pozniej przychodzi szkola i tym samym wieloletnia obrobka edukacyjna.Pozniej praca, rodzina i prokreacja. Nasze spoleczenstwo i system ekonomiczny potrzebuje organizacji, sily roboczej, swiadczenia sobie nawzajem uslug i rozmnazania sie. Taka organizacja stworzyla wiele wspanialych, wartosciowych rzeczy, wynalazkow, dziel sztuki czy systemow filozoficznych. Kiedy nie zdajemy sobie sprawy, ze nas sposob myslenia i odczuwania zostal nam bezwiednie wpojony a system ekonomiczny trzyma nas na uwiezi, pozostajemy gleboko uspieni. Nie mamy wyboru i musimy zyc w takim swiecie, ktory jak wspominalem powyzej ma mnostwo zalet. Nasz dusza inkarnujac sie do ziemskiego zycia byla calkowicie swiadoma jego istoty i koniecznosci stawienia czola wielu wyzwaniom. Wbrew pozorom bylo to dla niej i jest ciagle bardzo atrakcyjne. Wielu z nas ma szanse na proby wyskoczenia z wlasnego mentalnego i ekonomicznego pudelka. Swiat nie jest dokladnie taki jakim go nam pokazano i pokazuje sie codziennie w mediach. Aby to zaczac podwazac musimy sobie wpierw uswiadomic nasza niezawiniona ograniczonosc. Nie musimy isc ta sama myslowa droga jak wiekszos otaczajacych nas ludzi. Mamy szanse wyskoczyc z wlasnego pudelka i zobaczyc swiat takim jaki on jest w rzeczywistosci. Mozemy nadac naszemu zyciu wlasne wartosci, wlasciwie oszacowac wartosc pieniedzy, przedmiotow i innych dobr w naszym zyciu oraz zbudowac swoja najwyzsza wartosc nie wynikajaca z naszego miejsca w socjalnej i ekonomicznej oranizacji naszego spoleczenstwa.Wspominalem juz wczesniej na moim blogu,ze newolnictwo mimo, ze zostalo dawno zniesione nadal istnieje. Jestesmy wiezniami systemu ekonomicznego. Nasz system ekonomiczny wnosi wiele wartosci do naszego zycia ale musimy sobie uswiadomic nasza ekonomiczna niewole. Wyrwac sie z systemu ekonomicznego jest bardzo trudno i znikoma ilosc ludzi to potrafi. Jesli uda nam sie wyskoczyc z wlasnego mentalnego pudelka dajemy sobie rowniez wieksze szanse na lepsze usytuowanie siebie w systemie ekonomicznym.

Thinking is  the energy. Generally speaking everything is the energy even material objects. Most of us possess caged thinking that was shaped throughout  the life without our permission, knowledge and awareness. It is for me an obvious fact, not any kind of evaluation. Thinking was shaped by the environment, people around us and educational institutions. A lot of people quite well educated can still have caged thinking. We are not aware about our predicament, quite the opposite the system works in a tricky way giving us a sense of freedom. Most of us will stay for ever in the sate of caged thinking. The first thing that should be spotted in order to cross some limits in thinking is to become aware of the situation. It doesn’t guarantee anything but is necessary to begin an aware process of development. Some people were fortunate and their environment /parents, a bit different kind of education/  enabled them to cross the border of  caged  thinking unconsciously. Look at the picture. The green space is far more bigger, let us see things from  the wider perspective. Thinking at this level is creative, more independent and we are become much more self-aware. We know that in order to maintain our independence  we need protect ourselves from the influence of caged thinking. Climbing a ladder of improvement a quality of thinking is something the most important. It is absolutely necessary in order to grow personally.  It is even more important than possessing a degree. Looking at my picture again we may easy spot that although we jumped out of the box of caged thinking, we are still limited in our thinking. Crossing another barrier and limitation of thinking is not a logical process. The blue space is Divine, where our thinking changes immeasurably. We use oftener our intuition, which enrich us. The blue space belongs to the Universe and we become aware that the faith very often can bring more than logical thinking. We started to live in the space of miracles where our thinking can’t fully control how the Universe works for us. We know that planning in details is not necessary. In other words we are ready for Divine Guidance which is very safe, suitable, valuable, protective, creative and so on . Living in the space of the Universal Thinking we are still able to notice the world of caged thinking, we are still able to leave simple everyday life walking steadily on the ground. To my mind the Universal Thinking lets us to strike a balance between our dreams and reality, between the material world and Divine Realm, between Earth and Heaven …..

I have discovered the Maltese Cross. It is worth to put an effort and understand its imagery and meaning. I have simplified what I read and let myself to explain everything according to my understanding and feelings.  All of us derive the energy from the Universe. It is necessary to live. This cosmic Universal Energy comes in through the Northern Arm. It naturally contains the power which is represented by the Left Arm. However when our rate of awareness is low the power is negative. The energy just flows down and finally gives negative effects in the material world. This Divine Energy coming in through the Northern Arm contains huge potentiality but doesn’t force anybody to use it. Looking from this perspective we can easily understand why the life on Earth has generally the negative character. The Right Arm is represented by love. It is the highest clean Divine Energy. However Love itself doesn’t include any power. I mean Love is particular and doesn’t accept negative power. It is a problem and very often Love simply can’t be transferred into life. What does it have to happen in order to make Love active. I call this level where the Arms of Power and Love are the level of transformation. Individual transformation changes the vibrations of power and enable them to connect on the higher Divine Level. The central point of the cross contains intentions. When the power had had a negative aspect it shaped the negative character of intentions too. On account of the power transformation the intentions changed itself in order to be in harmony with new Power-Love connection. The Northern Arm represents Wisdom. In the original flow of energy Wisdom was  hidden and didn’t concern the whole process. Now when everything is transformed Wisdom becomes the final filter of the whole process of creation. Through the Northern Arm directly into the material world flows transformed /as I mentioned above/ Divine Energy equipped with appropriate Power-Love connection, with valuable intentions and finally with maturity called Wisdom. I am very happy with my Maltese Cross and its imagery ….

What does this gesture in the picture express ? I have taken this position spontaneously and started to wonder later .  Undoubtedly it is an opened position expressing a request. Demands come from low vibrations and are not good to me. Instead asking is always positive. I mean particularly a request channeled to the Universe not to others. The Universe will know who and when can be helpful. Properly expressed request always includes the faith. I am positive that this position demonstrates openness as well. Openness signifies we are prepared and ready to get some gifts from the Universe. Another meaning is the connection with the Universe. It means we are able to emanate and receive positive energy. I find it as a fundamental meaning. If you start to fill connected to the Universe your arms itself will move like that ….
