WANDERing Between Worlds

"There are things that cannot ever occur with any precision. They are too big and too magnificent to be contained in mere facts. They are merely trying to occur, they are checking whether the ground of reality can carry them. And they quickly withdraw, fearing to loose their integrity in the frailty of realization. ”

{ DESERT BREATH } — El Gouna, Egypt

ON MARCH 7 1997, THE CONSTRUCTION OF “DESERT BREATH” WAS COMPLETED. 

AT SAME MOMENT THE WORK WAS TURNED OVER TO THE FORCES OF NATURE, TO BEGIN THE SLOW PROCESS OF ITS ABSORBITION,
BY THE LANDSCAPE THAT GAVE BIRTH TO IT.

THE SYSTEMATIC DOCUMENTATION OF THIS PROCESS
IS AS IMPORTANT TO “DESERT BREATH”.

AS THE DISPLACEMENT OF SAND THAT WAS USED TO CREATE IT.
THE INSTALLATION BECOMES THROUGH ITS SLOW DISINTEGRATION, 
AN INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE THE PASSAGE OF TIME.

THEN I WAS STANDING ON THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN OF THEM ALL, AND ROUND ABOUT BENEATH ME WAS THE WHOLE HOOP OF THE WORLD.

AND WHILE I STOOD THERE I SAW MORE THAN I CAN TELL AND I UNDERSTOOD MORE THAN I SAW; FOR I WAS SEEING IN A SACRED MANNER THE SHAPES OF ALL THINGS IN THE SPIRIT, AND THE SHAPE OF ALL SHAPES AS THEY MUST LIVE TOGETHER LIKE ONE BEING.

AND I SAW THAT THE SACRED HOOP OF MY PEOPLE WAS ONE OF MANY HOOPS THAT MADE ONE CIRCLE, WIDE AS DAYLIGHT AND AS STARLIGHT, AND IN THE CENTRE GREW ONE MIGHTY FLOWERING TREE TO SHELTER ALL THE CHILDREN OF ONE MOTHER AND ONE FATHER.

AND I SAW THAT IT WAS HOLY.

BY AWAKENING THE NATIVE AMERICAN TEACHINGS, YOU COME TO THE REALISATION THAT THE EARTH IS NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN SIMPLY BUILD UPON AND DRIVE UPON AND TAKE FOR GRANTED. IT IS A LIVING ENTITY. IT HAS CONSCIOUSNESS.

FROM THE INNER BEING, THROUGH SIGHT, SOUND, TOUCH AND FEELING ARE MANIFESTED THE PATH, WINDOWS AND DOORS TO THE UNKNOWN, WHICH ALWAYS LEADS BACK TO THE INNER BEING.
