Imaging the Unknowable
I took this photo yesterday. It has been a while since I was able to see the moon because of clouds and pollution. In spite of the things that hide, what lies hidden is full, just like this moon doesn’t lose its mass or add to its mass as it moves through its phases. What gets in the way of awareness is simply a lack of consciousness about the darkness, the shadows, the unconscious. It is about projection, about trying to “imagine” what is otherwise unknowable.
For me, it is almost what I can see in terms of the spiritual centre of self, the wellsprings of the religious principle. I know its there and I can only catch a hint of its existence. I know the moon is fully there though I only see a thin sliver of its light. And that sliver is all I need – not just “faith” that there is a moon. For those that are used to me writing so much more in each post, I want to say that this “minimalist” post is intended and not just a result of laziness. Maybe less is more.
