Carrying Heavy Words (2018) by Bruce Clarke - this is the first painting on show @klosercontemporaryart
from the The Suspensions Series
As Clarke explains: a Rwandan genocide survivor once said to me: "Look at me, I look good, I smile. When people see me they can have no idea of what I lived through, what was done to me. It is only my shell which is here, which people see, smiling. Me, I’m still there, where it happened, where it’s still happening." An Eritrean migrant in an improvised camp under the ring road of a brash Western city could probably say the same. He could shame us with our wilful ignorance of his story, his suffering. For it is so much easier to see a parasite in rags than a person who has traversed the unspeakable.
They survived but aren’t quite here - how can one say where they are? They went through a war, genocide, a torture room… and came out on the other side. They are survivors in suspension.
In the “after” there is always a sensation of remaining suspended in limbo, an infinite purgatory which anchors down the survivor. He or she doesn’t understand the “why” of being, the “where” of reality.
This inner allegorical limbo that (sur)vivants inhabit but dread to name is now their reality. We rub shoulders with them everyday but move in a different world. Their space is impenetrable; they can never escape from it. They can only pretend to be in the present here and now, with you and me. Yet they are merely survivors in suspension. @bruce.clarke3 #migrantcrisis #artonline #bruceclarke #southafricanartist #life #survivor #suspension #limbo #rebirth #migrant #icon #collectart #artcontemporain #artcollector #beyond #artandliterature #rwanda #genocide #war #crisis

I’ve had impermanence on my mind as we head toward fall and winter. It’s getting easier and easier to accept the reality of it, sometimes even to turn toward it. I rewatched the Black Mirror episode San Junipero a few days ago. I found myself wondering if I’d want to stay in San Junipero, plant my consciousness in that simulation, or whether I’d want to pass naturally. I don’t know if I have a good answer for that one. But what I do know is that I rather like my meat body and I’m feeling rather poetic about being a good old fashioned human.
I’m forcing myself to write something. I feel like I need to update you all on my progress, but I’m having a hard to time describing what’s happening. I’ve got my racing thoughts under control. My ultimate goal is to FEEL and speak from the heart.
Forget the mind bs. I’ve been meditating using the app called “headspace”. I’ve learned that the mind has so many thoughts and it takes practice (through mediation) to remain calm. They described your thoughts as cars driving by on a road. You have the angry car, sad car, lonely car, crazy car.. etc... you get the picture. We all have the tendency to jump in the middle of the busy road when We see something we want to change or help....By doing this.... We will get hit by all the other cars( thoughts) and cause one huge disaster. I am practicing the art of staying put and just simply observing the cars go by...this is an excellent practice to maintain my peace. Last week I ran into the road because I saw the lonely car and I wanted to fix it. I created a huge collision. I am so grateful for my friend Anna. She helped guide me out of the mess I created. I still have a lot of practice to do, but I have always said that I am a Student for Life. That I am training internally and externally. That’s my motto. ☺️. Forever growing, changing and learning. I hope this post reaches someone in need of a little guidance. I highly recommend Downloading the app HEADSPACE. #meditatedaily #selfharmrecovery #blooming #rebirth #creatingawareness
love is HATE
But I'll let you go,
and sacrifice myself.
Death to myself, death
to ego. Was love ever real?
I know what I'm willing to do to prove it
No more betrayal, from
Feeling the unknown like
Feeling the unknown like
That's all I thought
I've ever wanted to be
a mom. Give you the
newborn, that could make
you feel reborn. Guess
we are all kids now.
Do we ever grow up?
Or just old.
Is this the end or beginning
Everything ends, hopefully
my soul never will.
It's all I have left, I want to keep it clean.
Please don't set fire to it. you can have the dress. Destroy it.
leaving only ahses

Ma reggel, (mint ahogy mostanában mindig) pozitív megerősítésekkel ébredtem. Mit jelent ez? Semmi extrát, csak annyit, hogy amikor kinyitom a szemem, nem azon kezd el pörögni az agyam, hogy: Úúr Isten mi lesz ma a szörnyű, hanem megkeresem azokat a momentumokat, amik tudom hogy örömmel töltenek majd el. A reggeli puszi a kisfiamtól, a kávém, 1-1 őszinte mosoly, az edzés, az öröm, amit Milton arcán látok majd, amikor érte megyek.... És még valami. Egy mondat:
“Ma valami csodálatos dolog fog történni velem!” Ezt mondom el magamban 2-3x, de úgy hogy el is hiszem! És ma reggel nagyon korán meg is történt az első csodám....💞☀️
Ha kíváncsi vagy mi volt az: folytatom a következő posztban. 😜
If there is something I’ve learned... to forgive is the best thing you can do for yourself. It creates a path to let go and move on. I Trust God, have faith, Anything is possible. #myjourney #wanluv #selflove #rebirth #forgive
ASCOLTO E MEDITAZIONE
Impariamo ad ascoltarci e ad agire secondo quello che sentiamo risuonare con il nostro bene più profondo, con la nostra anima. A questo serve la meditazione. È un esercizio di presenza e di ascolto, non dei pensieri o delle emozionj, ma del nostro essere più profondo, della nostra presenza, del porto di quiete dentro di noi. Nelle Stories trovi alcune meditazioni.
LISTENING and MEDITATION
Let’s learn to listen us and to act according to what we resonate with our deepest true self, with our soul. That’s the aim of any meditation. It is an exercise of presence and listening, not of thoughts or emotions, but of our deepest self, of our presence, of the harbor of stillness within us. In the Stories some meditations. #bbu #bethebestofyou #bethebestyou #executivefunction #igyoga #meditazione #meditation #meditations #breath #breathe #empoweringwomen #empowerment #superpower #superpowers #awareness #awakening #spiritual #spiritualawakening #kundalini #kundaliniyoga #peace #innervoice #beaware #listening #rebirth
