Describing wabi sabi is complex. As I believe, it’s something felt by all of your senses, and not what you think with your rationalized intellectual mind. It’s a heart felt intuitive intelligence. In art, objects, and life, it’s where everything, in its beautiful randomness shows us true beauty with its flaws and imperfections, not despite them. Where we are more in harmony with nature, versus trying to controlling it. Where art and objects are organic and natural, versus man made with shiny polished surfaces. Where you feel the warmth, and see the beauty, in everything that has endured the test of time. Where knowing that life is full of meaning, but its not perfect or permanent. Where a sense of freedom is felt by not getting caught up in worldly values, but instead enjoying tranquility in our world by living simpler, slowing down, and letting things develop in there own way.
Go confidently towards the life of your dreams – just be true to yourself, be real,…fully live, and appreciate each day.
Just a thought…
