The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
Dear Readers,

We have seen by this week the celebration of the dead people day, a unique holiday that represents important element of the cultural patrimony of the Mexican Folklore and by extension also of the Mexican American one.

This is a very Mexican celebration, it is also among the eldest ones of the national culture, it is deeply sentimental and certainly religious, but can be traced back 3000 years, so it is well before the country became christened.

Please check:

The day of death today is an example of family values, it represents a homage of the alive people to the dead beloved ones, the ones that have already passed away.

In that sense this celebration is the ultimate demonstration of love for somebody, like the one described in "Eternal love" the topic of the so famous composition that this year has been sang everywhere, the unforgettable work of Master Juan Gabriel ( 1950- 2016) .

Please check:

Juan Gabriel was the greatest of the Mexican Musicians ever , the most prolific of all the composers ever born in that country, with about more than 2000 songs, that died just two months ago .

The song became world famous in the beautiful voice of the Spanish pop star the also already dead Rocio Durcal:

Juan Gabriel composed this so beautiful song inspired for the love he felt for his mother, who died in the city of Acapulco on the year 1974, in spite of the fact that she abandoned him in an orphanage when he was just in between two to three years old.

Please check:

The Death day is also a unique way to remember our mortality, how fragile is the human condition, but knowing the death can not kill the essence of a human person.

Please check:

This thread is an homage to the Divo of Ciudad Juarez, Juan Gabriel, but also to the most compelling of the Traditions that Mexico has given to the World: the beautiful and deep spiritual meditation of the eternity of Love, the most noble of the human emotions.

This song from Juan Gabriel is really well written and beautiful, it's really radiating beautiful feelings. Good vibes :-)

I've never seen how El día de los muertos looks like in Mexico (I've only seen documentaries actually). I personally feel a little awkward when people celebrate death in joy with colored skulls, happy demonstrations on the street and all, but I can somehow understand their point of view even if it clearly doesn't belong to my culture. Especially when it celebrates something as noble as (unconditional ?) Love ;-)

a reply to: SolomonKayne

Yes Dear SolomonKayne,

Many times foreign traditions are a little difficult to be understood fully from our mentality, specially with this one that coincides almost in the calendar with the Halloween, but contains a dramatically different meaning.

Halloween is really a celebration of a pagan holiday that had to do with everything but probably nothing with respect to unconditional love, it represents instead a kind of satire of our fears and also of witchery or sorcery.

To try to show how life can transcend through the power of love the so rigid barrier that death imposes is perhaps something that makes this Mexican festival very look like the Egyptian ancient ones that we know existed at some point related to the death of notable leaders or figures, two civilizations that also share other interesting parallelisms, like the fascination for pyramids as energetic centers of adoration and also of burial.

Thanks for your comment.

Well the ancient Celtic celebration of Samhain, which resulted in today's Halloween, was a celebration of the day when the frontier between our world and the astral world (immaterial world of the dead, of gods and demons etc) was the thinnest, and so it represented a period of transition between the two "halves" of the year (lighter half to darker half). Thus it didn't celebrate unconditional love, but I'm sure it had a deep mystic connotation to those people, like the Egyptian rite of the dead.

I also like the Chinese and Indian view of death... As part of a cycle, not a nihilistic end of everything. Something like a gateway, not a wall on which the "car of our lives" would crash.
