A tale from Brittany

He built a 33 feet tall machine and destroyed everything. The city went under waters. One life after another, they suffered heartbreak. They killed themselves, and others too. So she cut her wings to join him in hell.
They rose from the flames with passion. And a yearning so strong.
For being given another chance to find life incarnated. A glow they had lost eons ago, as they were yet to be formed, as they were one and together.

Light and life

Gopi Krishna, The awakening of Kundalini

Gopi Krishna’s « The Awakening of Kundalini » along with Jana Dixon’s « Biology of Kundalini » stress on the fact that evolution cannot exist without physiological evolution. Spiritual evolution is no more a mere belief system or concept when the physical changes felt in our own bodies are this tangible and visible. It can not be of a separate pursuit. A rewiring of our nervous system, body light, fluids, cells and chemicals must happen for the soul/energy to awaken and find a new state of being.

But transformation has to bring us back to life, not the light. Happy people don’t chase the light.

We must come back from the light. We must come back from outer space. We must return to Life.

Yet I won’t reject the feeling of Mystery and transcendance stemming from the quest for light. That is part of our human condition. The numinous. This unmatchable feeling that inspires, creates and finds expression in the world. Not for the sake of a so-called Truth. For nothing really but as a manifestation of what inhabits our psyche and history. The light and the dark. It’s all in flux, it is a continuum and a viewpoint. And there is life.

Gopi Krishna wrote this book in the 70s, stating that humanity was finally ready to delve into this new field of research. Why don’t we pay attention to this driving evolutionary and healing force behind all living things? 50 years later, this is still relevant, maybe more than ever. It is cast out and labelled as esoteric and « spiritual » but let’s see what it truly is, what it really does.


Wherever they reside

Inside, outside, past, present and future

The bridge between the inner and outer. Howcome a shape as simple as a triangle could trigger such an overwhelming emotional reponse, ie a transformation. The sight -wether concrete or internal- is a bridge to a non linear dimension which stores memories that are not of this life. I used to dread the triangle and was led to a cult looking spiriual center. I even went on stage to embrace a triangle hung on the main wall, like the others did. It didn’t mean the triangle suddenly meant something to me, it didn’t mean anything but what I’d projected onto it. It is just the act of making peace with one’s own shadow.

I then made this piece to materialize this reconciliation. But the story I will attach to the fear is secondary. The triangle just helped some stored energy move again.
