“In the Calm of the Afternoon”  |  Anthony Satori

“That is part of the beauty of all literature.  You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone.  You belong.”

— F. Scott Fitzgerald

I believe that Fitzgerald got this exactly right.  Literature has the ability to connect us — in an almost mystical way — with the universal elements of the human experience.  This applies not only to literature, of course, but to all art — music, dance, painting, photography, film, poetry, etc.   Every time an artist creates a genuine expression of their inner spirit, it has the potential to bring humanity closer together, and to draw us further toward a place of true connection and harmony.BlogImage-footd

“The Fire of Primal Energy”  |  Anthony Satori

“Hear, O children of immortal bliss: you are born to be united with God.  Follow the path of the illumined ones and be united with the Spirit of Life.  Kindle the fire of kundalini [primal energy] deep in meditation.  Bring your mind and breath under control.  Drink deep of divine love, and you will attain the unitive state.” 

— the Upanishads (Shvetashvatara)

“Entrée des Artistes”  |  Anthony Satori

“Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself.  Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies.  We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.”

— Alan Watts
