we must know
bondage
so we know
liberation
aloneness
so we know
togetherness
agony
so we know
ecstacy
within duality
resolved of rationality
lies the secret treasure
lotus jewel
mystery school
the one finds the one back home

we are but dreamers
within the scheme of the supreme
crafting the seeds of our own mythology
each character a soul in the universal story
united by whom and what
we’ll call the spiders web
connected
unified, petrified or computised
a node in the motherboard 
what we’re after is within
beneath and beyond illusion
future frozen
stuck in the dance of a golden light
the pilgrims plight
prove yourself worthy of endless delight
we’ll bump into each other again
who what and when
a circle of elders decide
be kind and unwind
biology

power crumbles
glory fades
civilisations pride
turns to sorry days
statues crumble
ice cream’s melt
the hands of time, destiny and death
are ever felt
nothing lasts
as fear masks
our grievous debts
we have to pay
by today
our cruelty to animals
our robbery of earth
our treatment of those who are not us
but are us
there is no other
the great udder
is realised as the great Mother
her fertile land and cosmic womb
is all we have and all we need
from tree to hand to mouth to feed
but her periods of rumbling bleed
to shake things up from the source 
we will be on our knees crying in remorse
until we recognise her face, her name and her offering
children of the earth realise her breast is everything
why pollute this paradisal garden state
don’t ask don’t tell 
takes the cake
salutations to you
om hreem shreem

One man’s hell is another’s heaven

One man’s medicine is another’s poison

One man’s beauty is anthers folly

One man’s tragedy is anthers comedy
One man’s safety is another’s danger
One man’s stranger is another’s lone ranger

Some people

Enter your life

And in a flash

They’re gone

Some people

Stick around

And you find

You’ve found them

And you’ve won

Some people drag along

Still holding on

Some people you’re yet  to find

Within the wild

Searching for someone

Where two people meet

Within the density of a million faces

Is a miracle if you can spot one

Perhaps I’ve always known you and

In this life we’ve decided to greet

Just to remember we are one

Buy ART!

Dear friends
Calling in a strange favour, a few days ago I spilt Tulsi tea over my macbookpro rendering it obsolete. Without it my art and podcasting comes to a slowing halt. In order to save up for a new one, I’m asking most kindly whether you will consider buying a painting, from as low as $150 to help me continue my work. My website www.alexcarletti.com, blog,www.alexcarletti.tumblr.co
m and podcast www.cccolective.com and email alex.d.carletti(at)gmail.com . Please share or encourage art lovers and buyers to consider a purchase.
Love and blessings to you all
namaste

Sacred Art

Art as Sadhana (spiritual practice)

The creation of art, specifically sacred art, as a part of one’s yoga practice and as a path to realization and enlightenment is fundamentally a bridge between inner/outer and transcendent/subtle worlds. Painting as meditation is both contemplation, visualization alchemy and externalization. Art allows for the internal, as energy, as archetype, as symbology, as creative power, to become externalized and understood. Art is intrapersonal and suprapersonal. Art is gnosis, true knowledge of oneself and the mysteries. Within art practice is reflection, introspection, veneration, inspiration and communication. Art becomes a bridge of communications between various centers and aspects of the Self. The unconscious is made conscious through art. The shadow is brought into the light of the consciousness. Within this integration of life’s experiences can be resolved, as well as dualities and insights. As meditation on sacred imagery, art becomes a bridge to the mythical, universal and mystical dimensions.  As Jung writes “It is only possible to live the fullest life when we are in harmony with these symbols; wisdom is a return to them. For it is the function of consciousness not only to recognize and assimilate the external world through the gateway of the senses, but to translate into visible reality the world within us.”
