The Second Ring of Power

The SweetClarity Business

n

My yoga teachers training course included studies of a prominent Yoga text called “The Yoga Sura” by Patanjali. If memory serves – there is a part in the second chapter that talks about a path of devotion – which is an optional path in Yoga. In this part of the text the word God appeared several times and I encountered much friction with it  – even though the Yoga Sutra is carefully crafted as a non-religious text. I was able to transform that friction into a supportive curiosity by playing around with an alternate word – quality. It seemed to fit in perfectly and it resonated within me deeply.

Over the past two years I have been immersed in creative exploration of art that is dedicated to inspiration, art that embraces and commits to a present moment – over and over again. In it I found an opportunity to experience quality – and ironically I found myself reinstating the word God. I have said many times and truly believe that when beautiful images occur before me and are captured through me – it is the work of God. My work is more about not-doing, not getting in the way, remaining present, being there when divine expression takes place.

When I left my last steady/paying job over two years ago I was scared. For the first two weeks I was scared about money and where it would come from. Then that fear was replaced by another fear – which surprised me. Read More »

Glimpses 06 – December 2008

n

i have taken another liberty – and i have shaken the grip that time had on glimpses. though i am still taking a trip down memory line – i am no longer committed to a linear trip. i am releasing the memories as they come. sometimes it starts with an image that leads to a memory and words, other times it is a memory that leads to images and words. this time though – it’s a word that led to a memory of images and then more words. violence.

Upcoming Performance in Jerusalem

n

On the coming thursday – December 11th – I will partake in an improvised performance space that will take place at Beit Anna Ticho (9 Harav Kuk St. – Jerusalem).  The performance is taking place within a photography exhibition titled “Woman with a Camera”. There will be three performance groups that will perform consecutively and in a loop from 20:00 – 22:00.  I have been invited to perform with Shlomit (who I first met here) – and I am grateful for this opportunity to work with her again. During her performances I will be using live-stills. Ilay will also be there so I expect to do something with him as well.  Should be good fun – please come if you are in the area.

Woah Jolene!

n

Ever since I started the “enjoy” category (thanks again Ryan for the inspiration!) I really enjoy my excursions into youtube land – I run into some surprising stuff and usually burn up way too much time on it : ) During my recent excursion for the post on Cake – I came across this ooooomph version of my parent’s-generation-classic-all-time-favorite Jolene. Speechless! If my parents happen to come across this – then… we’ll have something to talk about at the next family dinner : ) These are the White Stripes. Enjoy : )

Interrogation & Compassion

n

Once in an inconsistent while I scroll through my twitter and quickly pull out a few links to review at a later time. They stay open in tabs in my browser until a later time when I actually read them. Sometimes I follow some of those links to other links – and that I think sums up the majority of my internet reading. This morning I found myself reading two articles/posts consecutively. When I was finished I toggled between the two back and forth a few times. The first about Happiness, Compassion and Sharing and the second about interrogation techniques used by Americans in Iraq. I’ll leave you to connect your own dots.
