Do the times compel us to look ‘within’? To recognise our deepest, most complex emotions. To explore our innermost spaces where humanity and brutality, masculinity and femininity, good and bad seem to lie in half embrace. Waiting to be disentangled. Waiting to be recognised beyond the binaries. Waiting to find expression in ways that shape our lives, our actions, our selves.
At the Edinburgh International Book Festival 2013, Salman Rushdie said, «Classically, we have defined ourselves by the things we love. By the place which is our home, by our family, by our friends. But in this age we’re asked to define ourselves by hate. That what defines you is what pisses you off. And if nothing pisses you off, who are you?»
Is there another way to discover the sky, the eternity within us? Where does one seek inspiration for this journey?
«To understand yourself you must create a mirror that reflects accurately what you are… Only in the understanding of what is, is there freedom from what is.» J. Krishnamurti

“When we look at the body in finer and finer detail, can we find what we’re protecting? If we visualise searching right down amid the very marrow for the thingness of our body, can we find it? Attachment to one’s physical form is based on the body being a reliable, continuous entity. But can we pinpoint what we’re clinging to when we probe its depths?” Pema Chodron.
