Manuṣya translates as (मनुष्य, “human ”) and refers to “human realms or states of existence”. I thought this was a wonderful place to start a little online journaling as a creative on a Buddhist inspired path. Pretty much most of my work in the studio is about this these days and I have simply had to ....well... just go with it.
My fine arts background locked me into a certain role and identity and its taken years of inner work to combine the multiple strands, mediums and ideas but here we are.
Thought for this evening:
“I would say that the thrust of my life has been initially about getting free, and then realizing that my freedom is not independent of everybody else. Then I am arriving at that circle where one works on oneself as a gift to other people so that one doesn't create more suffering. I help people as a work on myself and I work on myself to help people.”
