the contemporary sublime

In the 18th century C Edmund Burke wrote that the sublime is a feeling engendered by a vastness one cannot comprehend and Immanuel Kant said that the sublime was like the Egyptian Pyramids - more than we can understand. The sublime is a feeling of not knowing

The Contemporary Sublime
Here we are
We have survived
We go on

nothing in nature proceeds in straight lines
but in circles

The four reminders


Life is precious
Life is brief
Use your life well
Don't get stuck in safety zones.

broken moon

 
 
 
 
How can I maintain a pared down elegance?

Be still my heart.

this great beloved world

 
No matter what comes along
we are always standing in the middle
of a sacred space.
Everything that comes into our circle
has come to teach us
what we need to know.
Pema Chodron
