Within Temptation Mother Earth

Posted on: August 12, 2010

Within temptation mother earth is a composition of the Gothic Dutch metal band. The band was founded in 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt. Their music is variously described as symphonic metal, as well as gothic metal in some media.

Within temptation mother earth: Communicating with nature through music

Music is the code language of “the nature” and nature communicates with us through music. The lyrics of “within temptation mother earth” carries a special meaning for me as I can perceive what nature wants to tell us through these lyrics. Let me decode the message of nature from the lyrics of this beautiful song called “within temptation mother earth”.

Within temptation mother earth: Decoding mother earth lyrics

“Birds and butterflies

Rivers and mountains she creates

But you’ll never know

The next move she’ll make

You can try

But it is useless to ask why

Cannot control her

She goes her own way”

Message- Let’s accept the fact that however we might try but still we would not be able to master the nature. We have initiated great scientific and technological movements with the hope that one day we shall control the nature. But see what kind of mess we have ultimately created. In fact the whole premise of human development is based on reductionism and consumption of natural resources and that’s why we are reaching a dead end. To chalk out a new path of development and progress we need to work with the concept of unification of forces and holism. Only this will help us to move forward with revolutionary discoveries and inventions in every field. So let’s work with the awareness of the ultimate truth that nature is dynamic and therefore nature’s laws cannot be totally revelled or understood. On the other if we work with nature, she might help us solve many of her mysteries and thus throw us up on the higher evolutionary trajectory. This is the message I could gather from the first stanza of “Within temptation mother earth” song. Now let’s see the remaining stanzas of this song.

“She rules until the end of time

She gives and she takes

She rules until the end of time

She goes her own way”

Message-If anything is there that can transcend time it is mother nature. She was present before the existence and she will be present even after the end of existence. She is primordial, dynamic and has her own will. We need to be aware of nature’s “will” and this awareness shall help us to understand our soul’s purpose. Moving towards our soul’s purpose will naturally carry us along the nature’s way.

“With every breath

And all the choices that we make

We are only passing through on her way

I find my strength

Believing that your soul lives on

Until the end of time

I’ll carry it with me”

Message-The third stanza of the “Within temptation mother earth” song gives a message that the only possible way to move into the higher trajectory of life is to move with nature. Make her your ally and she will carry you on her lap. Work against her and you shall fall in the abyss. Therefore let nature show you “your purpose on earth” and let her work for you and let her carry you to salvation. Give your “soul” to the nature and she will show you the “purpose” of your existence and the path to “liberation”.

“Once you will know my dear

You don’t have to fear

A new beginning always starts at the end

Until the end of time

She goes her own way

Message-The final stanza of the song “Within temptation mother earth” gives a message that once you know your soul’s purpose then you are “on track” along with nature. Then there is nothing to fear and every form of destruction shall only lead to renewed creation. What we need to understand is that to make nature your friend and ally you may have to leave aside many of the shackles and restrictions of society. This may come in any form but you have to be prepared to shed the past that becomes a block to your soul’s purpose without any grudge or hatred. Embrace all that is new and all that serves your soul’s purpose. Be attached to all the manifestations of nature but simultaneously be detached as you need to remember that you are on a journey in sync with your soul’s purpose and you are continuously being guided by nature herself.

Within temptation mother earth: Nature has her own way

Finally I have to just say that nature has her own will and her own way. If we listen to her then she has a purpose for us. Therefore without thinking twice we should embrace her and this will definitely ensure that we are on the way to liberation. We need to just jump into her lap and she will not mind carrying the extra weight.

This site envisions the rise of womanhood in true sense that is the rise of the “essence” of womanhood in the physical, mental, intellectual and the spiritual planes. It calls for the beginning of a campaign for the true rise of women in all spheres of life for the restoration of the balance in nature.

Somewhere we have to make a beginning and it’s always better if we make the initiation at our own self. We can strengthen this mass movement for the “rise of womanhood” by bringing about the necessary changes in our own life as felt by our inner self. Further we can transmit the new thinking to others who care to listen. A small step today will definitely lead to a giant leap tomorrow.
