[9:08 pm, 23/02/2021] Srivi Kalyan: And this nature of creativity, and egoless, yet confident state of being cannot happen without connecting with the natural world, without allowing landscapes, and other beings to shape you, without being moved and sculpted by the beauty of wind, water and all the elements.
[9:09 pm, 23/02/2021] Srivi Kalyan: And strangely enough, in some ways it is hard work, but in other ways, it is a very simple and natural way of being. It is like a tree or a river, a scarlet minivet flitting around or a garden lizard. It is straightforward, honest simplicity.
[9:26 pm, 23/02/2021] Srivi Kalyan: And I understand the things that feel overwhelming when I share my work or just my conversations, even as you seek me out, that you are sometimes awed or confused or conflicted by what I have to say.
[9:28 pm, 23/02/2021] Srivi Kalyan: I don't have techniques to teach, learning from me is to learn the philosophy of my work and art, the philosophy of a way of life. Yes I teach techniques and tools along the way, but what I hope you can take away with you is the philosophy and then go on to craft your own ways of being and philosophies.
So when you come for your meetings with me, let's ponder together. That way, both of us will go back richer than we came to the conversation.
