Facets of a Diamond – Blog

“The Performer, His Audience, and the Maternal Instinct”

Music as the Maternal Instinct. A mother doesn't lullaby to get love – but to give.

Musicians, in contrast, are yearning to get – from the audience as the mother. Their music a cry for love. Listen to Beethoven – he is desperately seeking, not giving. They all are.

Lilt: “My Song Is Love Unknown”

Dr. Diamond has composed a large number of special therapeutic songs which he calls lilts. Like his original artwork and photography, his lilts are created with the specific intention of raising the Life Energy of the performer and his audience.
 

1. My song is love unknown,
my Savior’s love to me,

“Hearing the Composer’s Soul, Not the Music”

A sufferer presents me with his life problems. And it's my role – as best I can – to go through that superficial presentation to his deep, deep Self – to his Soul. And, hopefully, to then guide him There – for only there will he at last find Peace and Belovedness.

As I listen to the music of Beethoven, Brahms and so many others, and I similarly sense their life problems, their alienation from their Souls: Beethoven from his, Tschaikovsky from his. And also their interpreter’s: Fürtwangler's from Beethoven's and his own. (The interpreter has this double task.)

“Writing is So Much Easier When I am Free”

Lilt: “I Remember, I Remember”

Dr. Diamond has composed a large number of special therapeutic songs which he calls lilts. Like his original artwork and photography, his lilts are created with the specific intention of raising the Life Energy of the performer and his audience.
 

1. I remember, I remember,
The house where I was born,
The little window where the sun
Came peeping in at morn;
He never came a wink too soon,
Nor brought too long a day,
But now, I often wish the night
Had borne my breath away!

“The Endeavor of Psyche-atry”

I would like to practice true Psyche-atry.

Psyche is from the root BHES – to breathe. The Greek psukhein, to breathe gave us psukhe, soul. (The Latin halare, from the same root, gave us inhalation and exhalation – and halitosis.)
