"IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT YOU CAN’T SEE THE CIRCLE IF YOU DON’T STEP OUTSIDE OF IT. WHEN AN ARTIST RECEIVES A VISION OF THE INTEGRITY AND WHOLENESS OF THE WORLD, IT BECOMES HIS DUTY TO MATCH THE ACTUALITY OF HIS NEW INNER KNOWLEDGE WITH A CORRESPONDING ACTION IN THE OUTER WORLD.
HE HAS TO ABANDON THE SAFETY OF THE CIRCLE OF KNOWING AND STEP INTO THE VOID OF UNKNOWING. HE HAS TO LOOK BACK AT THE OPACITY OF HIS PREVIOUS LIFE FROM HIS NEW VANTAGE POINT, STEEPED IN THE TRANSPARENCY OF LIGHT” (CLEMENTE, 2013, P. 201)."A Quickening of the Spirit" by Francesco Clemente
The wanderer seeks the hidden, the mysterious, the wild. She knows the changes she goes through while searching are as important as finding what she seeks. She is not in a hurry. Wandering is a valuable as anything else she might do.Bill Plotkin “Soul Craft: Crossing the Mysteries of Nature and Psyche”
It is an Abode of the Unsymmetrical inasmuch as it consecrated to the worship of the Imperfect, purposefully leaving some thing unfinished for the play of the imagination to complete.Okarura Kakuzo~ “The Book of Tea”
True creation is an ongoing activity, both as the sustaining power that keeps each of us alive and as the thirst for continued self-cultivation in a cosmos of infinite expansiveness.Robert E. Carter
