Transience Wabi-Sabi


First thing that comes in mind thinking about transience,Buddhist monks in their perfect ochre robes making a colourful sand mandala. It takes long time to make it, soon after it is made it is destroyed. Creation and destruction…Sand mandalas are representation of transient material life.

Creation and destruction of mandala is highly ceremonial.

I like to create my ‘sand’ mandalas not really from sand. One was created out of sea shells, very tiny sea shells…nobody can put a price tag on creation like that and now it only ‘exists‘ as photo image…

One day I have left message in the sand made of sea rocks. Of course the message no longer exist in material form, it was washed away by sea waves, hopefully somebody got the message…


Sea also makes wonderful drawings. Pictures are so perfect…


Drawings disappear after few hours. Sea water washes pictures away…


The next day new pictures are created…different pictures.


Everything is in constant change, well if things would stay the same that would be boring.

There is this saying; ‘The more things change the more they stay the same.’ Constant and change are different sides of the same coin.

Some people say, ‘oh those lifetimes in Lemuria and Atlantis were so much nicer better and now life is so grey’. Remember the lives in Egypt they were so cool I was trying to grasp on those moments, those lifetimes although they slipped through my fingers like sand…

Yes, that might be true. As they say, ‘all good things come to the end’, yeah, but they forgot to say that bad things come to the end too.

My sea shells turn into sand and maybe one day somebody is going to make colourful sand mandala out of that sand.


Make your own own ‘sand’ mandala every day, every moment, choose colours and ingredients that are best for you and makes you joyful. Enjoy things while they last and don’t be afraid to let go when it is time to do so…

Moment masterpiece

Flower Fierworks
Every moment is art. Every moment of your life is art. Creation happens every moment of your life…right now…it happens.When you read this post these words…

You express yourself you read, I write…

The next moment you will go and do something else…you are choosing what you are going to do…free will in self expression…

How do you feel when you do something? Do you ask yourself this question?

They say its not what you do, but who you are…What are you this moment? How do you feel?What defines you?Have you ever asked yourself these questions?

Right now when I write to dogs play in the park…They are so different physically and energetically…One is so happy playing, he seems sooo innocent, the other one seems very unstable something is bothering him, he is angry…the second dog probably was adopted and previous owners abused him, he seems ‘broken’. He gets attention by doing something bad. The first dog is Labrador and the second seems like Rottweiler cross, probably bred for fighting. Labradors suppose to be good and Rottweilers suppose to be bad, isn’t it ironic?Two dogs have the same owner.

The third dog walks in the park and Labrador approaches him. Of course, Labrador is so nice and friendly, and innocent to a third dog and they about to play…Rottweiler approaches the scene and he is aggressive, he wants to do something bad, probably attack third dog. The owner was fast enough to stop it. If that Rottweiler would be human, psychotherapy, emotional processing, shadow work would be a good advice…

Next day I was walking in the park and noticed lots of feathers scattered around, not far away there was a dead pigeon. Most likely the dog killed it, because there are no wild predators in that park. You could still feel terror, aggression and destruction in that place.

Some beings create joy, happiness and others create terror, anger aggression. States of mind that you create, you live in them. If you intentionally create misery for others you live in that state of mind. Why? Because you put a lot of focus on that state of mind, where your focus goes your energy flows. If you intentionally create joy for others you create joy for yourself, because you focus on joy. That’s why the best revenge is joy.

I was observing other creatures in the park there were many birds enjoying their day.

A baby seagull was resting, a squirrel was enjoying an acorn.DSC_0824DSC_0983

You create your own reality and reality creates you all the time. You do this consciously or unconsciously. The best way to create is be conscious and aware what you create and with who you create.

I found this quote somewhere.’Art is how we decorate space. Music is how we decorate time.’ Unknown

The picture at the top called flower fireworks. I didn’t draw since school but one day I took pencils and couldn’t stop…
