Post Canvas And Paint: Another Meaningful World

Outside my window, in a virtuous world, there can only be … a willingness to let go.

Another Meaningful World

if every day

it meant something

–          to you

–          to the mirror in me

to protect the heart

even the whole of the world

would i hold my dying breath

to let it all go …


Images For HD Video: The Perception Of Time (A Beating Heart Remix)

Reality is the way we see things …

http://youtu.be/2fYwhvPeRds — The Perception Of Time (A Beating Heart Remix) Copyright 2012 – Walter W Smith – Music by Stars of the Lid

While watching a recent NOVA program, entitled The Fabric of the Cosmos, I once again became fascinated with the subject of “time” and our perception of it. It appears scientifically, that time exists in a “space-time continuum”.  Simultaneously existing. Integrated. Both influencing each other. A theory developed by Albert Einstein. My video delves into the human condition of the beating heart as an integral part of past, present and future; as being one without division; all that ever was, is, and will be.

This reality, if one takes the scientific approach, will create for us, another way of thinking about our lives. It can produce an uncertainty of sorts. Does it relinquish us from our past? Does it make the present moment more significant? Does it liberate us from the fear of the unknown–the future? Do our attachments, our thoughts, even our beliefs change and reconstruct themselves? Does our change in perception change even our bodies on a molecular level? Do we become more infused with All There IS?

Yes, I believe so. I can only feel emancipated. Why, because it connects me to everything. I can feel my heart beating as it once did and as it will forever. I can sense the surge of the cosmos and the essence of eternity existing within my very being.

It is beautiful … my reality of time and my beating heart.

P.S. in 1984 I saw the production of Einstein on the Beach at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. It is a post-modern opera produced and created by Robert Wilson and Philip Glass. It is based on Einstein’s theory of the space-time continuum. Beautiful and energetic, I highly recommend viewing it on YouTube.

Here is a link to a segment of Einstein on the Beach.

Post Canvas And Paint: Into Recollection 03

Recollection is the means in which we are awaken to the essential…

Recollection is freedom from the superficial

Recollection is an awakening to the essential, a journey to the absolute or ever-deepening awareness which never ceases to be all-important and in its light alone everything else discloses its true meaning. It is a meaningful integration or union of the entire person; a realization of its true self out of the depths of its being. It is the soul knowing and becoming aware.

Meditate with intent…

Distraction can also be thought of as the inability to discern what is the object of our focus…

Recollection and contemplation

There are times when speaking of distraction we mean that we are so imprisoned by a certain object or emotion, that there is the inability to concentrate voluntarily on any other object. This phenomena can be thought of as distraction in a relative sense only. It is not that we are unable to concentrate or focus at all, but find it impossible to control our attention at will; unable to release it from the object or emotion that has captured it. We are without the means or capacity to direct our attention to the object which at that time should be the focus our attention.

Meditation is the beginning of Recollection…

From distraction to recollection

… What then is recollection? It is chiefly an antithesis to distraction. We can say that sometimes we are unable to recollect ourselves in meditation: we are at once distracted. We are unable to focus our attention on any one point; we are controlled by the endless stream of thought and the embodiment of our associations; our mind is scattered; the complexity of life is perplexed. In its proper revelation, this state of mind, in which we cannot attend fully to any one object and fail to penetrate the logos of being, but carried away by the machinations of fantasy, is defined as distraction.


Music From India – Hazrat Inayat Khan

Music from India – Hazrat Inayat Khan. North Indian classical music.

World Music - the Music Journey

Hazrat Inayat Khan (Urdu: عنایت خان ) (July 5, 1882 – February 5, 1927) was the founder of The Sufi Order in the West in 1914 (London) and teacher of Universal Sufism. He initially came to the West as a Northern Indian classical musician, having received the honorific “Tansen” from the Nizam of Hyderabad, but he soon turned to the introduction and transmission of Sufi thought and practice. Later, in 1923, the Sufi Order of the London period was dissolved into a new organization, formed under Swiss law, called the “International Sufi Movement”. His message of divine unity (Tawhid) focused on the themes of love, harmony and beauty. He taught that blind adherence to any book rendered religion void of spirit. Branches of Inayat Khan’s movement can be found in the Netherlands, France, England, Germany, the United States, Canada, Russia and Australia. ( Wiki )
