when you are ‘in it’ reality loses it’s bite

Doing the dance, trance artist dance that is, which puts me into an altered state, no different than my ancestor artists  50 000 years ago making their marks in a cave, or a Bushman in South Africa 200 years ago dancing around a fire for hours and hours to the point of utter exhaustion, tapping into the same source. foto: Walt Flemming, champion effort my friend

Working the William Blake hours 9pm-5am, what a journey, so quiet, so peaceful, yet the creative force strong and omnipresent. foto: Walt Flemming

The only thing that holds us back is fear, fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of the night, fear of letting the self be itself. This is possible to overcome by trusting oneself while doing it, being it, and seeing it through.

Shadow work

Shadow work- the practice of acknowledging, facing, engaging, and integrating what we have turned away from, disowned, or otherwise rejected in ourselves—is not significantly taken into account in religion and most spiritual paths, especially those that marginalize or insufficiently address the psychological and emotional dimensions of experience. None of this is to say that religion and spirituality should be doing the job of psychology, but that they need to be more in touch with and supportive of practices like shadow work.
P. 43 Spiritual Bypassing by Robert Augustus Masters, Phd 2010 North Atlantic Books, Berkley, California

This book is saying things I have observed in my own sociological experiments by immersing myself
in the new age electronica subculture and closely working with hundreds of indivuduals, one on one, young to old. It is important to note that I am not discounting spirituality, or the practices involved with spirituality, it is a area that is wide open, although at the same time I can’t help but notice how fast it is growing, which begs the question, are we collectively fast tracking to a place of ‘feel good’ and simply forgetting or ‘not dealing with’ the very things we are moving forward from? Ever wonder why the ‘dark side’ is commonly seen or depicted with such disdain and negativity? The search continues…
Fotomahaloness -when you look at these images whatdo you see?
Painting of a woman who grieves th loss of her child to war
And a analog to digital abstract #556, the dark side of purple
