The Everyday Sublime

“Meditation originates and culminates in the everyday sublime…[It] is about what is happening to this organism as it touches the environment in this moment...The mystical does not transcend the world but saturates it.”

—Stephen Batchelor, After Buddhism

This piece is meant to be a conversation and a meditation with the natural world, with each seven second sequence responding to the next. In witnessing the mystical that saturates this world, we become participants as well, contained within each other and at the same time, totally boundless.  

'Sentience' re-orients perspectives and asks:

what is alive?
