This piece is called “Becoming Self-Aware” because i was thinking about plants and if they have any self-awareness in the way that animals do… and then i thought that it’s really a continuum, isn’t it? from being a living thing to being a living thing that knows it’s alive…
So how does that awareness happen? how does something alive start to become self-aware?
I don’t know… but i think it has something to do with feeling joy. Joy is personal. Joy is enlightening. Something like that maybe.
Anyway, this plant creature, dancing in the light, is experiencing the first stirrings of joyful awareness.
That’s my clay meditation for today.
