(Video) Dionysus – Calling

To the ancient Greeks, Dionysus represented the dancing universe and ceaseless flow of energy that unites us with one another and all the universe. To touch Dionysus was to feel emotion too powerful for the body to contain and for the rational mind to understand. Through this loss of control, we are transported to another realm and, for a moment, have stepped outside ourselves and become one with nature and the universe. In this moment, we experience transcendent, divine ecstasy.

As the god inversion, reversal, and opposites; Dionysus was light and darkness, joy and agony. He was the edge of self and beyond. He was heaven, and he was hell. To deny Dionysus and divine ecstasy was to invite madness.

In the epic struggle of two Greek archetypes–Dionysus and Apollo–we are left with world a ruled by Apollo. It is a world built on thinking, logic, progress, control, and predictability. We fear loss of control and, by definition, deny ourselves the transcendent Dionysian experience. In its place, we fill our lives withย superficial experiences…much like junk food for our soul. We consume more and more experiences to fill the void, but it is never enough. In a sense, we are left with a form of divine madness–addictive behavior. One way or another, the Dionysian archetype will not be denied.

About the video: I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading lately on Dionysus in my journey for deeper meaning and understanding. The concept for this video was triggered by the song. Viewing it on a larger screen will enhance the experience. Hope you enjoy ~ Michael

        I bet that must be one hell of a fantasy Michael, and I did notice some new art in the video. Yumi is a beautiful woman who deserve a man like you because clearly the man she is married to is clear incapable of realising her greatness and her graciousness and he doesn’t appreciate her. You make her feel like a woman, a much needed wanted woman and that in it’s self is a blessing to a woman’s heart.

    That music…where did you find it? Psychedelic was the first thing I thought of, with the kaleidoscopes, the bestial clang and screech. Then that word, summoned. Not tempted, or enticed, charmed or seduced.

    Summoned by Dionysus. Once she answered the call, then comes the dance, the tease, the seduction. Interesting that he makes her take the first step herself.

    Your discussion of divine madness, illuminating. Be careful, that mind might become the most sought after piece of you.

      Carly, your comments are always so intriguing and enticing. I’ve been reading some some about Dionysian art compared to Apollonian art and this song captured the Dionysian elements perfectly. It is Van Halen’s “Intruder” which is typically used as the intro to “Pretty Woman”. I wish this song was 10 minutes long rather than two. To me, this video is a like trying to capture a dream in the creative process. The beauty of the process (I believe) is that it leaves the final result open to interpretation. I’m glad the choice of “summoned” caught your attention. As Yumi’s story dances into the Dionysian realm, I wonder about the driving force. Who did the summoning? Was it Yumi or was it me. Or, was it both of us hearing the same call from a timeless archetype. Questions like this, though abstract and meaningless to many, are ultimately why this blog exists and my journey for deeper meaning. Regarding the mind, I do love a good “mind fuck”. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜˜

        I can’t believe you caught me off my guard in the comment again, now I’m wondering, who did the summoning? You start with the word Forlorn, then Summoned. I don’t know how that plays for Dionysus, but I’m getting an idea I know how it plays for Michael. I think Yumi was accustomed to being ignored by her husband. I think that a majority of people have grown so familiar with being disappointed with intimate relationships that when Dionysus surges inside them they are overwhelmed and terrified. Not only of the person who ‘brought them back to life’ but the realization that all those feelings, that incredible desire, was in them all along. Just there, under the surface, living, breathing, waiting. That glorious power you thought was long gone. Whatever it is, in you, that allows you to recognize that…. that is where Dionysus lives. Yumi’s tightly controlled response to you, was like waving a red cape in front of a prize bull. There was no way you could leave without looking deeper.
        So, I suppose, she summoned Dionysus with her pain. Once summoned, he’s not leaving till she’s on her knees in front of him, her eyes on his, demanding her own satisfaction. โ˜บ๏ธโค๏ธ

    So good to see you, Michael. Your analysis of Dionysus is intriguing… if we deny his influence we invite madness. I agree, without sometimes yielding to ecstasy, letting go of control – it’s like keeping the lid on a pressure cooker and never releasing some of the steam. We need mighty Apollo too – leading the chorus, master of the Muses, god of poetry and music. Maybe I could have both of them at the same time? ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ”ฅ I’m a greedy girl! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am totally with you on Apollo. With beauty, reason, and order, the world would fall into chaos. I certainly don’t mean to diminish the importance of this archetype. Actually, I think Apollo is my primary state mind. I seem to focus on Dionysus in my journey for deeper understanding because this energy feel more elusive…even confusing at times. Is it normal and healthy? Do others feel it? Do they touch it or suppress it? In fairness, I think many also deny the Apollo experience as well (especially the artistic dreamworld) and live Dionysus as the primary state of mind. As you put it, it isn’t a question of one or the other. We need both. ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜ˆ Hope you have a great day ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜˜

I recognize that pining in my own life as I have reached middle age. And as proof of my ‘maturity’ I seem to be the only one who recognizes the Van Halen song! Lol! ๐Ÿ˜…

        And as for heat creating heat or you could say building up the body’s senses to be engulfed in Intense sexual stimulation. Resembleming wine dripping from breasts it feels good to me and is enticing to lovers, makes their mouth crave to taste. Like envisioning what lies underneath the clothes it makes their hands desiring to feel the body they see that is sexy to the eyes and attracting their bodys to react with moisture and or strong length ready to be devoured by the one who has built up such tention. My poetic Latin curves enjoy causing that feeling, (Es placer para los sentidos)
        (It is pleasure for the senses), and when touched it is one exotic heated experience.

      Beautiful Aurora, I’m having a hard time taking my eyes away from your new gravatar. ๐Ÿ’—โšก๏ธI get what you are saying about control. As a way of life, it would be very frustrating to deal with. You’ve mentioned before the conflicting feelings you have around submission but how, with the right person, the feeling of losing control is exciting. It is something of an erotic dance to get into that space and let yourself go…to take in and be swept away by the full power of the fantasy as it becomes real…for a moment. The song is by Van Halen and called “Intruder.” It is often played as an introduction to a much lighter song called “Pretty Woman.” And, you are a very pretty woman ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜˜

        I suppose that for me, that space where I would be submissive, is sort of Dionysian because it’s not something I’d do very often or without wanting to take a walk on the wild side. It’s a space very much in opposition to where I live my life. But that’s what makes it such a mind bending, crazy hot thing for me.
