scapes for sacred living

Some scapes as reminders of the urgent need for sacred living. A work in progress. The works are oil on paper and oil on board.

“…the “sacred” is an element in the structure of consciousness, not a stage in the history of consciousness.” – Mircea Eliade, The Quest.

“A meaningful world — and man cannot live in “chaos” — is the result of a dialectical process which may be called the manifestation of the sacred.” – Mircea Eliade, The Quest.

The wind brings
Enough fallen leaves
To make a fire. – Ryōken.
