"Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is."

- Eckhart Tolle (via lazyyogi)

“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her. She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted. Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly. “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.”This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”I have so much respect for this person.”

"Love me like a seed. Love me like water. Love me like earth and rain and the bated breath of the Delta breeze. Love me though I waver and quiver and die and give birth to new things. Love me as I rise. Love me like the harvest. Like the plated greens of my life’s work. Love me as a feast, as food, as nourishment. Love me daily. Be full of me even when my flesh is absent. Love me through fermented cells, your moist skin and mouth and clean white eyes. Love me through existence and nothing more. No varied Delphic action or purchased thing or punctuated statement. Just this. Just teeth and fingertips and the crowns of our heads. Just bare plates and masticated food. Naked and still with our laden bellies and empty throats."

"This is a practice not a life. Every day we practice as humans to be faithful to ourselves. Life is for the things around us - that which is driven by instinct and ritual. We are free of that. We can jump with parachutes on our backs or to our death. We have these choices and so life is not what we live. What we live is knowledge and truth. The system of understanding which we should practice every day. Like stones near the ocean, sloughed clean by the water until they are grains of sand."

"I have asked several men now if they would allow me to paint their penises. Each time I was surprised to be met with bashfulness most of them thought I was joking. I think it’s a little funny. But also a little strange that these men…who would speak about their man junk so fondly in any other setting - suddenly become sheepish and awkward when faced with the opportunity to show it off. And even though I genuinely do want to find a man willing to let me paint his member…in the mean time, it just seems like the perfect way to get a guy to shut the fuck up. <3"

I love compliments from the mouth of a beast.  Makes it special.
