After silence, that which comes nearest
to expressing the inexpressible is music.

Being in Love

solitude

New Earth Heartbeat

lions in love

The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it is not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of the other person – without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.

— Osho, Being In Love

No matter who you are

The Essence of Stars

Learning to be open enough to listen ,see and in turn learn from the little things in life ……

tobiehewitt

On a warm summer night, we can venture out into the dark and gaze at the stars and remember that we are made of the same stuff that they are. This truth is not all the time obvious nor direct, but we need to keep the eyes and ears of the heart open to discern the messages that present themselves everywhere around us, if we but look and listen. In the smallest blade of grass and the largest tree, in the ant and the elephant, in the atom and the sun, the essence of who we are also exists and existed since the beginning in an ever present now. “We are such stuff as dreams are made on” and those are the dreams of the Creative Spirit. Namaste!

Art Quotes

“Painting is the silence of thought and the music of sight.”

Orhan Pamuk, My Name is Red

Art is made by those who consider themselves to have failed at whatever isn’t art. And of course it is loved as consolation, or a call to arms, by those who feel the same. One of the reasons there seem to be fewer readers for literature today than there were yesterday is that the concept of failure has been outlawed. If we are all beautiful, all clever, all happy, all successes in our way, what do we want with the language of the dispossessed? But the nature of failure ensures that writers will go on writing no matter how many readers they have.You have to master the embarrassments and ignominies of life.”

In his beautiful meditation on failure, writer Howard Jacobson adds to history’s finest definitions of art. (via explore-blog)
