the consequences - of our ignoring our stories, myths, legends, spirits of creation, oral histories, songs, communities and language .. are now overwhelming us
our 'arts' are languages of communication .. are far more than simple literal insistence
they are unlimited in scope, they are all individual expressings of our shared experience
of living life .. on earth .. earth-life
they appear in thoughts, actions, non-actions, sitting with, considering, caring, communing .. being
as well as all the physical aspects of story telling, musicking, singing, painting, drawing,
dancing, celebrating, engaging, cooking, making, listening, attending to ..
because unlimited, can assist our capability to dissolve our (often) insistences
on fixed, unchanging, ideas about life .. toward our inherent relationship nature with living life as is
we play with language, words, joke, create aphorisms, allegory, reveal metaphor
a language (such as 'english') - one based on a construct of separated 'subjects and objects',
is inherently not able to approach (non-literal subjective) life
as the essential nature of life is 'energy', is 'spirit', is subjective, is not separatable - is not literal
we have lost and (have to) ignore everything other than 'physical' life
work around ?
'english' is utilitarian, busyness, physical (objectively separated)
and is relatively universal, adaptable, ever changing, ever new variants
and, we can play with it .. thence become better able to 'live with' ..
