"Think of the people in professions who work with death and the dying, including people who kill for a living such as veterinarians who euthanize pets; soldiers; slaughter house employees who prepare animals for mass consumption; executioners in countries that have not abolished the death penalty; insect exterminators; abortionists, etc. This is not a moral judgment but a prayer to those on both sides who suffer the non-virtuous karma of the act and those who are killed. Think of all the different situations where death is surely occurring as you are in seated meditation while conducting your daily prayers. Spend at least a moment each day to contemplate your own death and remember that this life is not solid nor is tomorrow guaranteed. Do not take for granted that you or your loved ones will still be alive tomorrow." --Zeena Schreck
When I look at a Loise Nevelson sculpture I think about the way she described eating raisins. She would not eat raisins by the bunch but singly and selectively. 'When I put a raisin in my mouth I know what I'm doing'. This single statement expresses a mindfulness about living in the world that I see reflected in her work.
These thoughts about Nevelson were brought about by reading an interview with her.
“Eliza Swann interviewed me for Arthur magazine in 2011. I loved the conversation that resulted from the meeting of our minds. Inspired by these results, I wanted to document many of the ideas that have been shaped through conversations with close friends of mine.”
“The modern magician does well to remember the ancient concept of magic as an art, noticing as well that tekhne is the root word for 'technology.' Approaching magical praxis as a delicate balance of intuitive and aesthetic art form and logical and rational technology – at once an esoteric science and [what was once referred to as] the Black Arts – can allow for a more exacting approach to the development of the skill.”
“ Magic has very subjective interpretations among all the different types of practitioners. But there is a basic standard, an established commonality, which each magician accepts as the core definition. How the practitioner develops from that basis is determined by many different variables according to the different persuasions and practices of magical teachings available to each culture. The core practice of magic is: The execution of a willed intent to create change in the material world, which either defies, hastens or purifies the consequences of natural cause and effect.”
