72 Series: Constancy and Change
People can see the change while the world runs its orbit.All things in the universe change every minute and every moment because of the alternation of the sun, the moon and four seasons. In our life, the most basic sunlight, air and water change with it, and the change happens whether it’s as tiny as a microcell or as large as a celestial body and the universe! The only thing in this world that does not change is change. Any existence in the universe, whether tangible or invisible has the factor of change essentially. The factor has constant impact on the substance and there is a chemical reaction further. To explore the process of life, the thing that people fear the most is no more than change; however, if we want to be sublimed to the state of “eternity,” and complete the truth, good, beauty, even sacredness metaphysically, change is the only way.
Situated in change or constancy, people must know to get “enlightenment,” namely, possessing the ability of foreseeing the future and referring the wise’s experiences to solve all kinds of difficulties in the process of changing! Under this space-time, man is extremely tiny and insignificant. How to keep self-goal and fulfill the life planning simultaneously is an uneasy thing. Buddha has said that, “Life is capricious.” Therefore, only by carefully observing the potential change in ordinary life and grasping the things’ sign of going to move but not moving yet, and going to change but not changing yet. We would know when to change and how to change
while facing the revolution of space-time and vicissitudes of things then achieve the state of “It seems of no rules but actually has its own law, it looks as if not changing but in fact it changes by itself!”
Artistic creation is the cultivation from internal to external. By exploring the “nil” of the universe within one’s body and mind, it is further transformed into the work with combination of inside and outside, and appearance and connotation. Because the external form merely lacks of depth, only the beauty spreading from an abundant heart is touching! “Change,” the message that 72 series conveys, is not changeable, but is changeless (constancy). The so-called constancy is the extreme of change, namely changelessness. If we can keep the regular mindset while facing everything in life and not persist in the external environment, the true nature will be awaken, and
we can have a creative life, move toward self-realization and self-affirmation, and let the journey of life extend infinitely. The continuity of life is the explosion of energy. Via the switching of time and space, we probe into the variation of all things in the universe and thus create the crystal of life. The wisdom of life lies in the tempering of crystal and tempering crystal from tempered crystal, growing out of nothing from existence to nil and being external and endless.
