"Samadhi Gaze" (禅视)
"Samadhi Gaze" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Samadhi. Supreme consciousness. A state of meditation. There is no longer any individuality. Consciousness and self-awareness continue to exist, but not in the previous duality of “that is mine” and “that is yours”. The person lives on, but from now on the inner Self remains with the Supreme Self. This means the end of all problems and pain, the end of suffering, of rebirth, and death. Imagine a building filled with inhabitants. From the outside, you can only see a glimpse of life through windows. Everything seems disconnected, isolated, and divided. These inhabitants represent the many different layers of the self, all housed beneath one roof, and yet separated by walls. At the moment of reaching samadhi, all these inhabitants become linked as one and return to their divine origin. It is the highest state of consciousness, the goal of our spiritual journey on Earth. How does one reach this state? If there were a simple answer, everyone would be walking around as enlightened beings. It takes strict dedication. You must sweep the floors every single day. The first step is controlling the external disciplines, poses, postures, breathing, and meditation. Once you have control of the external, you can move to the internal. Take care of your home first before trying to impress the streets.
