What’s in a word? ~ Dictionary Day :mrgreen:

Hello my lovely friends 💕Thanks for peeking in! 🤗

It’s Dictionary Day! Let’s take a word, and see what all is ‘in it’ . Shall we? Let’s shall! 😋

Today’s word is

                                                                                                            ‘Abode‘ 🏡🏕🏰

~1. Here’s what the dictionary has to say

~2. Wikipedia knows where it’s from

~3. The Thesaurus knows what else to call it

Address, base, casa, crash pad 😅, dwelling, homestead, house….. to name a few.

~4. Kabir wrote a beautiful poem about the

Adobe of the beloved 

Oh Companion That Abode Is Unmatched,
Where My Complete Beloved Is.

In that Place There Is No Happiness or Unhappiness,
No Truth or Untruth
Neither Sin Nor Virtue.
There Is No Day or Night, No Moon or Sun,
There Is Radiance Without Light.

There Is No Knowledge or Meditation
No Repetition of Mantra or Austerities,
Neither Speech Coming From Vedas or Books.
Doing, Not-Doing, Holding, Leaving
All These Are All Lost Too In This Place.

No Home, No Homeless, Neither Outside or Inside,
Micro and Macrocosm Are Non-Existent.
Five Elemental Constituents and the Trinity Are Both Not There
Witnessing Un-struck Shabad Sound is Also Not There.

No Root or Flower, Neither Branch or Seed,
Without a Tree Fruits are Adorning,
Primordial Om Sound, Breath-Synchronized Soham,
This and That – All Are Absent, The Breath Too Unknown

Where the Beloved Is There is Utterly Nothing
Says Kabir I Have Come To Realize.
Whoever Sees My Indicative Sign
Will Accomplish the Goal of Liberation.

~5. Quite a few artists wrote (and sang) about an abode

      -1. Humble Abode by Abramelin
-2.
Enigma of Abode by Disperse (Album ‘Seasons of Mist’)
-3.
Lights Abode/Celestial Salem by Ely Cathedral Choir
-4.
Avalon, The King’s Abode by Avalanch (Album ‘Eternal Flame’) 

~6. In Stockholm, Wisconsin is the ‘Abode Gallery’ with a great variety of artist’s creations.

~7. A vast number of artists portray their Abode in their art- with oil, acrylic, pens, pencils, ink…

….and then there is my latest ‘Art Love’ ~ Folk Art. I adore the whimsical depictions of everyday scenes, and Karla Gerard is my favorite right now. (Thank you Pinterest 😁) But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself

                       

And? What do you think? Adorable, right? 😍

Well, I do believe that’s all. I truly had fun researching for- and writing this. I do hope you enjoyed it too! ๐Ÿ™‚

See you soon! 💕

Until then
~Tina xoxo
