form, formless

formlessness, 8.5"x 11", watercolor/acrylicon Yupo paper, 2012 Recently I have been reflecting on form and formlessness. This thought is the result of what I am experiencing in my life at the moment, as well as reading the Tao Te Ching. I am really interested in understanding what is underneath it all. The biggest of pictures of this existence. I am diving into Stoic philosophy where universals laws are said to exist within the infrastructure of the world we all live in, and with which all things within it live accordingly. So with form, this painting was inspired by that idea where all form comes into the universe from non-existence, only to leave form and return to non-existence. It is the cycle of birth-life-death. And whether it is your existence, an object, a relationship, an idea, a feeling, whatever... all things participate accordingly. Knowledge, philosophy more specifically, is powerful in this way to have a rational relationship with life itself in an accepting, rational manner. How often do we find ourselves in situations where the sh#t hits the fan, and we are left in a confused traumatic emotional state, unsure what to do. How culturally, we are raised to live in accordance with one side of the story, fleeing from the rest of it. And yet, one side to the story isn't a story at all. And so again, with form, to have the awareness of the inevitable and not to fear it, but rather find contentment in it for there is no other option other than to reject it and suffer the consequences of disharmony. And so this painting is that visual expression, of 'us' as form/formlessness born out of the cosmos and returning to it. enjoy

<a href="https://www.pachinkosite.info/" target="_blank" title="파칭코사이트인포">파칭코사이트인포</a>I have learned some considerations through your site post. One other subject I would like to convey is that there are many games that you can buy which are designed especially for preschool age little ones. They involve pattern acknowledgement, colors, animals, and designs. These commonly focus on familiarization as an alternative to memorization. This helps to keep children and kids engaged without sensing like they are learning. Thanks

Can I simply say what a relief to find someone that actually knows what they’re discussing on the web. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people need to look at this and understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular because you definitely possess the gift.

I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I found this in my search for something relating to this.

Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there https://www.gunma.top.
