Sunstone is the longest and perhaps the most extraordinary poem by the extraordinary poet Octavio Paz. Sunstone is an epic poem, long and passionate, like a golden mantle in which to take shelter. A hypnotic torrent of images and signs dazzle and enchant us as we pass through each verse. The imagination is left spinning, intoxicated with pleasure. Sunstone is made up of hendecasyllables because hendecasyllables are the measure of the sonnet, the love poem par excellence in Latin languages. And they are 584 hendecasyllables because the planet Venus covers a cycle of 584 days to return to the same point in relation to the sun. This peculiarity was highly valued and studied by the Aztecs, who placed it at the centre of their cosmogony. And of that portentous and complex machine for reading the cosmos, the Sunstone, the Aztec Calendar. Let the music, the images and the many lights of the 584 lines of this prodigious love poem to life and its fragility carry you away.

An old man carries on his shoulders his only son, who’s been wounded. He has to cross a mountain in the dead of night, to get to the next village, where there may be a doctor to look after him. Both their lives unravel in the journey. A masterful and heartbreaking story of the father-son relationship.

The Teachings Of Jesus

The Teachings Of Jesus

2021-11-0126:17

The Sermon on the Mount is a collection of Jesus' teachings to a group of simple people who followed him everywhere. It is not a theological dissertation for intellectuals, nor a discourse delivered in some elegant college or palace of the time. It is, as the title implies, a talk on the mountain. In direct, simple and often incandescent language, Jesus rewrites everything people knew about God up to that point. These words have been so influential that with them Jesus founds a new period in human history. Jordan Peterson describes it as "the closest description of what it would mean to walk with God so that you’re in the Ark when your personal flood comes."

The Hero´s journey

The Hero´s journey

2021-09-2227:18

If you have ever thought of writing a novel, a short story, a film script, a play, take advantage of this sequence of twelve steps known as The Hero's Journey. This is the path that the hero follows to earn the treasure, the throne, the hand of the princess. A journey we can also follow in everyday life, and which we illustrate here step by step with the plot of three admirable stories: The Lord of the Rings, The Matrix and Harry Potter. Enjoy it!
The Power of Myths

The Power of Myths

2021-08-0131:24

We all need myths. Myths are foundational stories that give us life, and without them, we die. Myths are great truths disguising as stories. Human beings need myths because we are stories made of stories, poems decanted from poems, beings created and nurtured by stories and poems. The second season of Radiant Whispers kicks off in mythical and heroic fashion.
Did you know human voices are travelling in interstellar space right now, beyond the confines of our Solar System? This is a fascinating story of human achievement and endeavour, and a tribute to the unique power of the human voice, “our exquisitely individual and intimate footprint in the universe”.
Demosthenes Howls At The Sea by Gabriel Porras
At the beginning of chapter VII of his seminal work The Republic, Plato talks of a group of people who live in a cave, enslaved with chains around their neck and feet. They have never left the cave; the dark and humid walls of the cave, and the stale air inside, are all they know and breathe. They have never seen the outside world; all that their eyes ever witness are the shadows cast on the cave wall by a bonfire that burns behind their backs. Join me as we ponder on this beautiful allegory of life, knowledge and enlightenment.

I survived COVID-19

I survived COVID-19

I'm one of the blessed ones who survived the coronavirus attack. What brought me through that problematic trance, and what lessons did I learn? I share everything here with my best wishes.

This is the Easter story: the last days of the most influential character in history, narrated with masterful detail and emotion by the Greek physician Luke, in chapters 22 to 24 of his Gospel. A dramatized reading in contemporary English that brings to the text nuances and drama that you may not have noticed before. Whether you have read it many times, or never, take this opportunity to remember -or discover for the first time- the meaning and significance of Jesus' last days on Earth.

Peterson
Do you ever feel so lonely and sad that you don't know where to turn? In moments like these, the best medicine the world can offer you is not money, sex or power, but love - a single compassionate person who'd be willing to listen to you. Today we read a moving story by Anton Chekhov that illustrates the anguished yearning we all sometimes have to speak to someone. The story is entitled Misery, and it takes us back to an old St. Petersburg covered in snow. Enjoy!
The Desert Oddysey

The Desert Oddysey

2019-12-2819:261

Do you know what happened to Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus right after Christmas? They all became refugees. They were already dirt poor and homeless; now, they also became fugitives. Today we do a very different take on the Christmas story. God is in great mortal peril. Joseph and Mary – two kids who are barely 18 and 12 years old, most likely – have to cross six hundred miles (one thousand Kms) of lethal desert to save baby Jesus from the tyrant who wants to kill him. Incredibly, astonishingly, God incarnate put himself under enormous peril every day He spent among us on Earth.
Noah's Ark

Noah's Ark

2019-11-2735:471

Did you know that there are dozens and dozens of stories of a great flood in the most diverse and disparate cultures, from Japan to the Maya, from Babylon to Polynesia, from the Eskimos to the Australian Aborigines and Africa? Noah's Ark is the story of a vast ecological catastrophe caused by human blindness. Do you think this may be a relevant story nowadays? I believe it could be the most compelling and urgent story for our time, and I hope you’ll agree with me once we read it together today.
Buenos días and welcome back to Radiant Whispers! Today it's all sheer fun and wild imagination with the big and spiky Roald Dahl, surely one of the most beloved writers of all time. And rightly so - who hasn't been thrilled, amused and delighted by his stories? They're just so quirky, vibrant and delightful that they stand on a class of their own. Dahl is one of those geniuses that are so ahead of the game that everybody else -Hollywood included!- is out of breath trying to catch up with them. You must have read or seen the movie and/or theatre adaptations of The Gremlins, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr Fox, Matilda and of course The BFG - the story we read together today!
Juan José Arreola is one of the greatest Latin-American writers of the XX Century, one of the first to dare to abandon realism. This is how Professor George D Schade introduces Juan José Arreola and Bestiary, his "Book of Fabled Beasts": Arreola jabs at complacency and ruthlessly exposes pompous and hypocritical attitudes. He takes a depressing view of most human relationships, and in a large number of his stories and satires he chips away at love and its illusions… Whatever the subject of his satire, Arreola most often achieves his effects by a deliberate jumbling of phantasy and reality, a mingling of the logical and the absurd, a blend of imaginative frivolity and Orwellian grimness. (…) One of the most ingratiating and delightful parts of Arreola's collected works is his "Bestiary," consisting of twenty-six brief sketches. Here Arreola harkens back to that form which was so fashionable in medieval times with moralists and allegorizers, where certain virtues or characteristics were popularly attributed to certain beasts, real or imaginary. All of Arreola's beasts are real, their humanlike foibles and defects uncomfortably real too. Though Arreola's general outlook and some of the details in his bestiary will probably horrify the overly sentimental, still there are lyrical and poetic touches to offset to some degree the refined savagery of his satire.
