You have to leave the city
of your comfort
and go into the wilderness
of your intuition.
What you’ll discover will be wonderful.
What you’ll discover is
When I read about spirit stuff and art stuff, I am humbled by how cheesy and flaky it all can sound. I am humbled by awareness. How it changes everything. I cannot perceive anything without its relation to something else. This jumping off the cliff, heart wide open, poses many ‘problems.’
Chaos. And the deepest and most remarkable aliveness.
A trusting in myself to keep moving. A leaning on the work in the studio, the physicalness of it, to define itself.
A paradoxical connection and separation with others. Searching for service.
Oh, and let’s not forget about how much laughing I do with myself! I am really funny…..flitting around…..trying so hard.
The place I go to be with me, is so…….unexpected…..like silly monkeys on a wall.
Wakefulness is a state of non-illusion where you see things not as you are but as they are…..Anthony DeMello
Perspective as a tool for making art rather than art making perspective. Humbled again.
This place I go to be with me is home……
ain’t got no big answers, but I got art.
