SUMMER: 4 North, Water, Via Negativa


50 Years of Creation Spirituality


We first meet the wit, wisdom and words of Matthew Fox about 2003.  In an internet search for the European Indigenous tradition the Greenman  In an Australian context -as there is a 1910 Greenman on the front of the Qld Print Office, Brisbane 

Sharing space with Cairns Peace by Peace reminds me of how war veteran Richard Adam's memories from  Nazi Germany disappear into the  Via Creativa.  We all were transported and  transformed as he created a puppet theatre.  Like... the Whisper of The Willows.  We followed each and every move of dancing toys. Hanging on to every word of the song.  To a beingness, a connectedness to life itself that is -The Way.  In the style of Roszak the connection may be called biophyllia (love of life) that which is personal and profound.
I used the image of Franz Jaggerstatter for the path of the via negativa.  I'm a bit "that which can be named is not the Tao" when it comes to the via negativa. 
 Shellshock can be redeemed though, Aki Ra - was a conscripted child soldier in 3 different regimes, he has taken that experience and has spent the last 20 years disarming landmines.
Via Creativa  recreation, imagination, syncronicity, inspired creativity - It doesn't matter how or what you create just that you do. It could be a couple of Teddy's doing an impromptu Punch n Judy show, it could be a landmine museum where every shell is literally a life saved, today it could be as simple as 'liking' someones creativity in facebook
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Thoreau  Walden's Pond   Norma McCarthy- Via Negativa.  Outsider Art
