○Distance of mind -2020.9.20-
The “Distance” of the moon and Ikebana change based on mind and feeling of people. Although the moon looks simply floating in the planar sky without knowing the fact, we can feel the depth of space suddenly by knowing the fact that it is 380,000km distant.
“Scoop the water, the moon is in your hands” (Famous Zen word). The only people who scoop water can get the far moon.
In the same way, Ikebana makes people feel big space around by using flowers. The beauty in front is highlighted by feeling big expansion connected to space.
Now, in the COVID-19 pandemic, when “distance” of people and countries becomes bigger physically and psychologically, we may be able to live closer and more positively by looking the same moon and thinking together.
Why don’t you try to re-feel the distance with precious people by feeling space spread to outer space and roses as the rising moon?
