Reflection for today…Soulful Gaze -Henry David Thoureau

6 Aug

“Could a greater miracle take place

than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?”

-Henry David Thoreau

Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it.”

Soulful Gaze Between Performance Artists Marina Abramović & Ulay…

A Soulful Touch...

 A Soulful Touch…

Ulay’s Eyes Reveal A Love Remembered…


They say that the eyes are the mirrors of the soul but what about the heart?

The eyes reveal the heart’s hidden desires and suffering.

Marina’s Tears Reveal A Love Never Forgotten…

Please enjoy Touched by Vast…

You say that I am too
So much of what you say is true
I’ll never find someone quite like you
I’ll never find someone quite like you
Like you

The razors and the dying roses plead
I don’t leave you alone
The demi-gods and hungry ghosts of God
God knows I’m not at home

I’ll never find someone quite like you
I’ll never find someone quite like you

I, I looked into your eyes and saw
A world that does not exist
I looked into your eyes and saw
A world I wish I was in

I’ll never find someone quite as touched
As you
I’ll never love someone quite the way that I
Loved you.”


Did Marina’s and Ulay’s performance bring you to tears?

It brought me to tears because it reminds us that we are so vulnerable and emotional- so utterly human.

    Very touching. I welled up slightly.

    Going back to the first half of the video, I can’t believe none of them burst out laughing. Instantly reminded me of this:

      Slayer Muser…
      Did you really well up?
      What about the video clip made you so emotional?
      Is it the thought of old flames reconnecting after so long?
      Is it the thought of resurrecting an old love?

      Do you think that true love never dies?

      Peace & Love…

        1. Slightly.
        2. I like Ulay’s head-tilting. He can’t speak, but each time he tilts, he’s saying, “Well, here I am!”
        3. Partly.
        4. Partly.
        5. Yes and no.

    So beautiful. Yes, I cried, the love between them was so present.
    And yes, I believe that true love never dies.
    Do you?

      I also believe that true love never dies.
      However, I also believe that true love is extremely rare.
      Few people ever experience it as many people mistake attachment, infatuation or lust for love.
      {An upcoming post will explain in greater detail}.

      The true love that I believe in is born out of respect, spiritual/emotional intimacy, trust, honesty and compassion.
      It is mature and unwavering.

      Is this the true love that you believe in?

      Thanks for reading and commenting.
      It is always an honour to hear from you Jas Baku 😉
