Studio closed for the season!

I’m back in New Delhi.
Safe and sound!

The fire of who we are
As people of this universe
Young and Alive
Strong and Free

Yesterday was the day
I was made to accept “Reation”
From Action and Response
To Reaction?
Is that the New Way of this Earth?

I’m Talking Clay
Accepting and not accepting

The Way of the Artist

The Way of the Artist – drinking and sharing the divine!

On the Path of Meditation/Awareness/Technicality the technique and skill level is important. You will need to be very focused on artistic technicalities. Become skillful at the chosen medium of art. Perfection will become your goal.

A student of the art of Pottery will be asked to make and break all pots till a day comes when the teacher sees perfection. Only then do they allow the student to fire the pot. It’s like their graduation ceremony. Like saying yes you’ve picked up the techniques. You are skilled in the art of pottery. This is the method of Practice. Every day you might dedicate an hour or 5 to your art form. Therefore the correct teacher is necessary on this path. To guide and be aware of when the student’s work has transformed. And the student has become an Artist.

On the Path of Love/Surrender/Totality the medium of art is used more playfully. Just whatever comes you create. No need to think about wrong or right. The process of art is based on a non-judgmental attitude with full acceptance of whatever is getting created. This is where we say all of us are born Artists. Playful like children. Painting, singing or dancing with no judgments.

The artist comes to a place, where everything created looks divine. The eyes and how they look have transformed. The being has transformed.
As the journey culminates, on either of the paths, you may find yourself criss crossing these paths once or even a couple of times before you realize they are the same.

So from this point on, everything starts getting created on its own. Like a happening. And that’s when the creator and creation become one.

This way
The Way of the Artist
Is a beauty-full and playful way to drink and share the Divine!

Attached to Art?

Sometimes I come across artists who want to decide who buy’s their art.
Are ‘they’ good enough to buy it? To understand it?
Sometimes artists feel that no one can understand their art except themselves.

What do we do when we feel attached to the piece of Art we have created?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I feel quite comfortable if the pot breaks after being used sufficiently.

It’s a little less comfortable if it breaks as soon as it comes out of the kiln (while transferring to another location)

The actual process of working with clay is always such a learning experience.
And during that, there are plenty of cracks, breaks. But that’s how it is!

Beyond being morally/spiritually correct – ‘Letting Go’ of our creations

My experience is that we usually either overly express our sorrow on loosing a pot
or we end up suppressing the feeling all together (usually when we are trying to be morally or spiritually CORRECT)

What I learnt is the way to breakthrough is to be aware of our feelings/thoughts.

Basically what is left behind if we do not overly express

or suppress the feelings/thoughts is awareness.

Acknowledging how we feel.

Being aware of how we feel.

Not talking about the feeling

but Living the Feeling.

And it’s amazing how it changes to Joy!
