Psychic abilities to painted Buddhist teachings

That feeling when a random youtube video about psychic abilities connects a Buddhist teaching to your current series of work

Mid-video over coffee, I debated whether or not I should share this one here. Russell Targ has some fascinating stories but how relevant it is to my art? Plus it’s long. How closely should I keep blog things focused?

I do have that Intuition is my Superpower shirt. This ties closely to that, but the shirts are commercial art, and only distantly related to what I’m doing.

Well, then I got to 31:30.

 

“You have to give up your desire to name things and grasp onto them and guess what they are because in the universe, it’s really empty of names”
-Padmasambhava

 

I just had one of those, “oh my God, someone else thought this” moments of connection!

THAT, in a group of words, is the core idea behind the dance paintings I’ve been working on for the past two years articulated!
(ironically with words)

Like these paintings with improv social dancers about connection without language…
