A Separate Reality














You think about yourself too much and that gives you a strange fatigue that makes you shut off the world around you and cling to your arguments.
      A light and amenable disposition is needed in order to withstand the impact and the strangeness of the knowledge I am teaching you. Feeling important makes one heavy, clumsy, and vain. To be a man of knowledge one needs to be light and fluid.
     
      One has to reduce to a minimum all that is unnecessary in one's life.
     
      Once you decide something put all your petty fears away. Your decision should vanquish them. I will tell you time and time again, the most effective way to live is as a warrior. Worry and think before you make any decision, but once you make it, be on your way free from worries or thoughts; there will be a million other decisions still awaiting you. That's the warrior's way.
      A warrior thinks of his death when things become unclear. The idea of death is the only thing that tempers our spirit.
     
      To be a warrior you have to be crystal clear.

Love your blurred technique.
Nice.
(And I'm going to have to go buy the
new Pink Floyd "Final Cut" CD.)

Elaborate photos.
Great deals on silhouette and refinements.

There are photographs and there is art produced through the lens of a camera. The work of Daliana is the latter.

I am not sure what words to use to describe the images produced with this technique: Other worldly, mystical, magical, haunting .... all of them, I suppose, and others, as well. Subject matter counts and, me being me, I like the one with the dog the best. But, the one I prefer for the emotion and the feeling it instills is the one of the people at the fountain. It evokes remembrance and happiness for simply being alive.

Your musical selection is neat and the commentary has renewed my interest in Carlos Castaneda. It has been a couple of years, and it might be time to take another look at him, at his ideas, at his writing.
