IMPERMANENCE - #120
Created August 5, 2016 in San Francisco, CA.
With each new Edition that I make, I try and outline different concepts that’s behind all the work that I do. For example if I talk about compassion in one, it means that the presence of compassion is throughout every single piece of my artwork.
For this Edition I want to talk about something that has been popping up in the back of my mind frequently. It seems to be everywhere, and the thought won’t seem to leave me. The thought is that eventually… everything turns to dust.
It’s hard to think about or understand if you’re not willing to be open to the fact. But, it is an inevitable fact. If you think about everybody who has come before us, they have turned to dust. If you think about you and I, we’re eventually going to turn to dust. Even future generations who don’t exist yet will have the same fate.
A few billion years from now the Earth is eventually going to be consumed by the sun as the sun itself explodes and turns to dust. The part of the earth right where this balance was created will eventually turn to dust.
Now this could be a very negative philosophy, but ultimately when we can understand that we’re not going to live forever and this moment isn’t going to last forever we can appreciate each breath and fully embrace the moment.
