Sensual Art Installation
Erik Ravelo’s The Lana Sutra is a sensual art installtion depicting 15 different yarn sculptures in various love-making positions as a homage to love. The installation is a dedication to desire for an equal and sharing society.
I wonder if people every go crazy from trying to convince others that they’re crazy. It’s a fun thought to entertain. I bet that’s what happens to some method actors. They become so involved in their fantasy that it becomes real. But if that can happen, doesn’t that throw away the notion of personality altogether? Is all human personality tabula rasa? Do our minds attract thoughts like static cling?
T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land (via ego-x)
The more I read, the more I realize how fucking well read Regina Spektor is.
From where a drone operator’s sitting, one blurry blob of pixels looks almost exactly like the next blurry blob of pixels, which is how the term “bug splat” worked its way into modern military slang as a way of referring to a kill. Now, though, a giant art installation in Pakistan wants to show drone operators that its people are anything but anonymous white blobs—and that that “bug splat” belongs to an actual human being.
Charles Bukowski (via garp)
Now, while I do love Bukowski, I must counter. I fear he has conflated the notion of love with that of lust. How very egotistical this statement is. “Love more.” The magnitude with which you love somebody is not the result of some fated compatibility, but rather the result of how well people are able to reconcile the selfishness of their own ego with the selfishness of another. And therein, vice versa. With this, if you have tempered your ego to love selflessly, without expectations nor need for reciprocation, you will fall madly in love with whomever you consciously, or subconsciously, choose. The key term for love is cultivation. The key term for lust is desire. Lust is a matter of circumstance. Of environment, chemical reaction, expectation and physicality.#love #lust #compatibility

I’m Buddhist and I’ve always loved the imagery even before I was. The wrathful deities from Tibetan and Mahayana art always fascinated me as a kid. They were like transformations the gods took on in battle. Like a monster magical girl I guess. His is name is Mahakala. Power Prism Make Up.
