Yellow Tara MandalaSaturday, 19/05/2018
Yellow Tara Mandala – A week long practice, created and led by Jill Purce where around 70 people become a living, rotating Mandala… (This is a piano duet – meaning 2 pianos…)
00:00 – I go along as my usual self and on the train to the venue – I wonder if I’ll be able to “get into it.” As soon as I’m there though, there’s an itness about the place that suspends rational thought without me having to try. I love these people because as different as we all are in occupation, beliefs and personality – we all find some purpose in conspiring to realise this unusual project.
00:34 – “Thank you for your love, Oh, thank you for your love, Oh, thank you for your love, Oh, thank you for your love…” – My body seems to be tuning into this different mode of seeing – which feels
Next One…Friday, 2/03/2018
Here’s the next video – I prefer these ones that seem to emerge out of that artistic technique of simply casting around for what might be there – instead of attempting to impose empirical order onto what you logically believe to be there… So this is all completely speculative, all observation and “common sense” – but I wanted to tell you – the practice of asking for Mercury’s help – actually asking him – is massively underrated! Because as with playing or writing music – the process of recording this was like… um… not thinking too much and just projectile vomiting glass marbles – anyone else get that?
Short Story 4/ 5…Saturday, 25/11/2017
This is a short story about talking to plants… It is fictitious – just a thought experiment, innit? Trying out alternative explanations for accepted phenomena, as an exercise…
[I want to relax out of the trifling miscellany of day to day life. Can you please take me on a walk round a human-centric gallery of The Divine? I’d love that. In return, I’ll pass on anything of importance that you show me…]
[[You think that space and time are requirements of movement but actually movement is a requirement for space and time – it’s that way round. It was consciousness moving that formed the dimensions of physical existence.]]
[See this is what I love about you – you don’t mess around with smalltalk.]
[[No function for it.]]
[So let me get this straight – the vibrating energy that constitutes all things… is also cranking out time? And also cranking
The Trend…Saturday, 16/09/2017
I heard a very good explanation of where meaning can be found – from internet meme and Kermit-voiced, Dr. Jordan Peterson, the other day. He said that humans have a number of dimensions to their existence and many of them extend beyond their immediate lives; their future selves, the community around them, their descendents – and so on… He suggested that if one patterned one’s activity so that it matched the pattern of these extra-personal components of life… it would register in the body as meaning… I really can’t think of a better way to put it than that.
My contention with technology is that it creates a kind of armour around the human body, that obscures the greater pattern beyond, disabling any possibility of true resonance with the natural environment for which we’re largely adapted. The vitriol I see directed at millenials when they tussle for power with false grievances, is
