You cannot find peace by avoiding life.
Virginia Woolf



to be at peace is to rediscover love

Richard Wagner, Prelude 3rd act, Tristan und Isolde, Stadtkapelle Dresden, Carlos Kleiber




when there is no longer any violence within us
therefore no conflict, no split, division or separation
peace reigns around us      (Patañjali yoga sūtra)

a return to oneself, a reconnection with one’s multi-dimensional being
masks fallen, illusions lost
the light shines and spreads
far away


  Kaspar David Friedrich, zwei Männer am Meer



the wound

it is through the gap in the wound that the light passes (enters/leaves)

light passes through       (after Rūmī)


  Mark Rothko, orange and yelllow


whatever happens      welcome, be grateful
whatever arises from oneself      welcome, be grateful


the movement that brings you back to yourself :
allowing what is


saying yes  (to what happens, not to the programmed scenarios that perpetuate suffering)

invites the transmutation of suffering
without struggle, blame, rejection or attachment
admitting that this is what is happening


the resolution is always on another level

return to unity



Gustav Mahler, Symphoniy nr 3, Wiener Philharmoniker, Claudio Abbado



the breach

the place of least resistance, where it gives way: crack, tear, rupture
expansion and opening : lighting up

something else appears



in the Japanese art of the sublimation of the break, repaired with fine gold
molten gold: light that reunites what was separated

resilience, a new life given to an everyday object
a new dimension revealed


a plus
the precious

being at peace

a tranquil state, vibrant, lively, agile, mobile, profoundly alive


Marc Namblard, nocturnes
