“Spirit can be made by other spirits, but matter is bound with divinity itself.”
~Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
These orbs belong to an artist whose spiritual path clearly lies in his manipulation of matter. When I asked him why spheres and balance figure so prominently in his work, he said, “I don’t know, I guess I’ve just always sought balance in my life.” And he does. His corner of the world is whole, balanced and beautiful. His generous spirit shines and transforms. He doesn’t preach “the word” to everyone in an attempt to manipulate his world and feel safe, he just takes care of his little corner and it shows.
For some people prayer comes in the form of going to church, praying, meditating or some other formal practice.
For some of us, it is a matter of staying present and letting each moment inform us. My worship comes in the glory of tasting life. I touch it, smell it, taste it, fuck it.
I breathe in Life and send it back out alchemized.
I find wholeness in the moment.
Divinity resides in the mundane.
