I just viewed Jim Henson’s 1982 The Dark Crystal. It is a plethora of sound and visuals. This piece is shamanic and harmonic and karmic. Twenty-eight years later, the precepts stand, that when there is something aggravating outside of one’s essential bright self, the Way of transformation is to bring that force into your pure and light-filled heart, join with it/marry it, from that place of LIGHT. This is a wonderful alteration in perspective whereby no longer is anything viewed as “other,” but as unified. No sense of “self” is lost or surrendered, no uniqueness can be hazed or dissolved; we each continue to carry our one-of-a-kind vibration and the resonance becomes sweeter as we harmonize. We each are responsible for carrying The Light. We each are responsible for our vision. I am excited to bring the memory of this film into my studio, to carry its inspirations into my winter creations. I wonder what will occur?!?!?
