Japanese Garden


with fear and trembling
destiny’s road perishes
with courage
the horizon comes to light

Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.
-Buddha

Adler’s psychological theory upholds the individual as the sole creator of oneself. This sentiment goes against every spiritual thought of mine. Our salvation cannot solely be fought alone. I agree wholeheartedly with Jung and the collective unconscious. We uphold each other, in conscious ego and dark of shadow. Yet, there is room outside the lines. The box that holds only so much air, must be pried open if we are to remain healthy. Sometimes that means we go it alone.

Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, May 2016

Have faith as a mustard seed: never give into obstacles, push the rocks aside, persevere in all adversity and let your light shine. 

Matthew 17:20, Matthew 5:16
