And how to develop this passion?
It is the belief in which you know, I can do it.
And when you have Duende, then you create black sounds. “Black sounds” are not silences. “Black sounds" are the mystery, the roots fastened in the mire that we all know and we all ignore. It is the fertile silt that gives us the very substance of art.
A cultured man once said, “All that has black sounds has Duende;” and there is no greater truth.
“Black sounds,” said that man of the Spanish people, who defined Duende while speaking of Paganini:
“A mysterious power which everyone senses and no philosopher can explain.”
In the love department, the present world misses out greatly for lack of romance.
But not everybody can understand romance, especially men.
Most men associate romance to sex and make of it a mundane experience.
Romance is the domain of women. They are romantic and lovable by their own nature, and that is why they should seek the emotion of love and the melody of its music.
This is accomplished by appreciating the quality of their man regardless of his title, also the good intentions he has towards you.
Romance starts with writing to each other (texting, email etc.)
As you do so, the sensitivity of the poet in him will be uncovered, his Duende will start to surface and you will reward him by inspiring him to send you more dialogue.
You do not date until you are sure he is the one, since you are able to communicate, since he brings excitement, since you sense he has something farther for you to explore.
The world has come to a point where everybody is so clever that they completely forgot what is important in life.
And since we do not follow the right principles, we go home empty and starving for love. When the starvation and thirst gets to be overbearing we drink on muddy waters and eat food from dark caves. The result is hurt, so we build barriers for protection. These barriers obstruct our vision and do not let the sunshine in. That is why we are so ignorant with all this knowledge that we have.
So, let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit. And let sex take the back burner, and not be in our thoughts at this present moment.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery is not love, but a passing fancy leaving dust in its mist.
