Leaped at the Sun

Alack, it was I who leaped at the sun
To give it my loving friends to keep!
Nought man could do, have I left undone:
And you see my harvest, what I reap
This very day, now a year is run.

He who binds to himself a joy, doth the winged life destroy.
He who kisses the joy as it flies, lives in eternities sunrise.

William Blake

Everything is Abstract

Everything is abstract if we know how to look. All the many things that we see in everyday life are like the children's game of finding lions, tigers and other imaginary things in the fleeting shapes and patterns formed by the clouds in the sky. Our perceptions tell us that the phenomena of everyday life are solid and permanent. Just like the clouds in the sky, though, they are fluid with only arbitrary boundaries and are constantly being blown apart by the wind of time. When we purify our perception of the habit of solidifying patterns, all the myriad things shine as luminous, pure appearance.

Sacred Secret Place

I take it as a given that everything has as it's essence a kind of radiant goodness, a wild, unstoppable breeze of fresh, spring-like air. That this is so, I have no doubt. After all, everyone loves something, even if it's only ice cream.

This is the true path of the artist, to find the radiant, unstainable goodness of human existence and express it through her art.

Your Mind is Everything. Everything is Your Mind.

Things to think about today:

"It from bit symbolises the idea that every item of the physical world has at bottom - at a very deep bottom, in most instances - an immaterial source and explanation; that which we call reality arises in the last analysis from the posing of yes-no questions and the registering of equipment-evoked responses; in short, that things physical are information-theoretic in origin."

John Wheeler

"Mind and intelligence are woven into the fabric of the universe"

Freeman Dyson

"Everything is in it's nature of the mind. Being of the mind, there is nothing, not even the smallest thing, such as an atom or a mote of dust, which is not of this same mind nature."

HH The Sixteenth Karmapa of Tibet
