Naturalism & Mono No Aware

Joaquin Torres Dao Art Naturalism Mono No Aware
Dao, Naturalism & Mono No Aware

On an early morning visit to the misty lake, my mind started to stir up to create. Why is this happening again if the nature of my mind is to listen? To be in the water requires the ability to listen and feel, and not because it will bring something out for me though for patterns to be released in beauty to be more present. Suddenly, I realized that something may be on the surface of the water. Then I noticed a person on a fishing canoe patiently waiting on the yin side of the lake. Barely visible and with subtle waves reaching the shore on my end. I noticed, while I kept listening, that the fisher person was showing me a reflection of the ego, the type of artist, or poet that now loves the feeling of love that comes from myself. The ego, the old standing form, was nourishing himself from it and now waits, silently, on the yin side without becoming present, without being alive, waiting to fish for some inspiration. Mono No Aware & Naturalism is to me to be in a state of being  that naturally liberates itself towards completion and leaves behind a form of art that preserves intimacy of the individual.
