FEAST

 

This series is a spontaneous extension of the previous series ‘Divine Silence’.

After exploration, it appears that all true wonder seems to be intimately linked to the sudden disappearance of our famous ‘I-I’!

A sublime dissolution of all forms of identity, if ever there was one.

And that's despite the fact that the latter, via our beloved mind (or more precisely its most faithful servant the self-egoic!), caught here in the throes of an existence still possible without it, would come galloping back to seize this beautiful ‘affair’ as being its author, or at least its beneficiary. 

Nonsense! In truth, it is the emergence of a profound, inexpressible joy, through a simple, pure and intimate recognition of Life itself.

 

And what we commonly call ‘Nature’ never ceases to invite us to this eternal FEAST, leaving us guests perfectly free to enjoy it as if it were a vulgar buffet-à-volonté, but where, in truth, there is a more subtle dress code to wear, highly recommended for experiencing this indefectible symbiosis once again; A symbiosis that, as an aside, we often seek in vain outside ourselves, like children who have become sleepwalkers, drunk on an imposed reading of the World that is particularly scientistic and therefore reduced to the apparent limits of materialism; which is entitled in fine :

 

Respect and Emptiness.

Hélène / June 2024

 

Silence is the highest form of thought, and it is by developing in ourselves this silent attention to the day, 

that we will find our place in the absolute that surrounds us.
