ritual performance art

Ritual is like a union of performance art, a 'how to manual' and dinner with one lover all at once. When correctly understood it contains a wealth of information read by multiple organs of knowledge (such as body, feeling and mind) simultaneously.Ritual mechanically performed simply encourages deadening impulses of the psyche. - t.k.


When asked why he included mythical animals and angels in his paintings Chagall said "I paint what I actually see." When asked why his paintings were not realistic Monet said "I paint the luminosity between the object the seer." The urge of art is divulgence of subtle whispering between the divine and humanity. - t.k.


"Appearance is a conversation between sunlight and vastness. When confusion overshadows wisdom the 'meat packet' vision of life prevails and a dull murkiness of living pervades. This fleshy urge, animated by wisdom, becomes the unfolding communication of a most profound and beautiful mystery. To participate in this conversation one must not only exist but be alive in the sense of awake to the mechanism of attention and its needs in relation to higher possibilities – one must do the work to cultivate this or one is a deaf mute standing between Buddha (vastness) and Jesus (appearance) unable to hear a word." t.k., from sunday teachings today
