a few days ago the song
"the transfiguration" by sufjan stevens found
our secular? family has been listening and dancing to the track on repeat as 👁 research into the story of the song;
jesus brought the disciples
john, james and peter
at the top
jesus started glowing
until his body turned colorless
and his face was bright as the sun
a light so bright the disciples had too shield their eyes from the blinding light
understand this light as representing true reality and tink of the disciples as representing conditioned
at jesus's glowing side appear
a bright cloud speaks
"this is my beloved sun son,
with whom 👁 am well pleased;
👂 to him"
been wondering about this christian transfiguration moment to buddhist enlightenment
in the 2nd century
saint irenaeus was fascinated by the transfiguration and wrote:
"the glory of god is a live human being and a truly human life is the vision of god"
the living moment
in matthew 22:32
jesus proclaims god
"is the god of the living,
not the dead"
moses and elijah were already dead long ago on the day jesus brought his disciples up the mountain
in the ultimate reality of the living light the physically dead moses and elijah are fully alive
in the blinding of the truth light humans realize life and death are interconnected
the physical body of jesus "and his garments became white as the light"
in the presence realization of god
the human body becomes an empty vessel beyond time too bee love
it's 11:27am now how doo 👁 fucking draw this?
how to draw
as a symbol
is knot a symbol?
every drawing gonna bee a failure
at the point when/where the last direct ray of light touch
float in a dark circle
and there it grazed my forehead
