Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen

I like the peaceful and melodious song. It somehow reminds me of the phrase “let the church (ekklesia – called out of religious bondage) say Amen (or in this case, Hallelujah)”, to praise God/Universe/Divine in us and as us for ever showering us with blessings, for equipping us with everything we need so that we lack no good thing, for surrounding and protecting us with favour, etc.

HALLELUJAH LYRICS – LEONARD COHEN

I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof

You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It’s not a cry you can hear at night
It’s not somebody who has seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don’t even know the name
But if I did, well, really, what’s it to you?
There’s a blaze of light in every word
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

The Gentle and Forgotten Art of Blessings

Video commentary:

To bless, says Pierre, means to wish, unconditionally and from the deepest chamber of your heart,
unrestricted good for others and events.
To bless is to acknowledge the omnipresent, universal beauty hidden from material eyes;

I enjoyed listening to the evocative song and reading the meaningful messages. Yes I agree the Universe wants to shower us with blessings, and the more we appreciate life, the more life appreciates and bestows us with more goodness. I think this is a secret and mystery of the Universe.

Sunday’s ZEN TIP: “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” ~Eckhart Tolle
