Secrets

When seeds are buried in the earth, their inward secrets become the flourishing garden. — Rumi

Flow like a river

May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children. – Rainer Maria Rilke

Meet you

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field.
I will meet you there.”
— Rumi

opposites

The servile earth and the lofty sky: without this opposite the sky would not be so high. The low and high of the earth are winter and spring. The low and high of the body are sickness and health. By means of these opposites the world is kept alive; by means of these doubles souls feel fear and hope. Nature teaches through opposites so that you will have two wings to fly, not one.” – Rumi (image via mystic-lady)


Stay awake. Be open.


MOTHERS

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY, MOMS OF THE WORLD.

MOTHERS. Artist Martin Creed’s recent installation at the Hauser & Wirth Gallery, London. When asked what inspired this massive revolving piece (it’s barely contained in the space, nearly scraping the ceiling) the Turner Prize winner says he chose the subject “because, well, mothers are important. Probably the most important.” Click the image to see MOTHERS in motion and Creed’s interview. For ambient video, click here.
[As to why he chose to make it revolve, he chuckles and admits “I was interested in the idea of mothers spinning out of control… the idea rang true to me.”]
