識衣 CLOTHES OF consciousness
The formation of adult consciousness is like cells that harden and turn into scabs. This is a process in which things are interlinked, a mixture of intensity and pain.
It is always a burden that cannot be recognized
We must have made a mistake somewhere, but it is correct.
They are always enchantingly beautiful and the difficulty in obtaining them makes it impossible for us to ever give them up
An ancient American Indian saying goes: “Beware the woven blanket, always leave a gap to make sure ones soul is not trapped inside.”
When making Clothes of Consciousness every time the wires hurt my hand I thought of the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen where a princess is forced to makes clothes from nettles so as to lift a witches curse forcing 11 princes to live as wild swans.
