Closer than close

When an object is seemingly present it is utterly intimate with, inseparable from and one with the awareness that knows it. This inseparable intimacy is known as love. So to be an object, to know an object and to love an object are identical.
Rupert Spira (“Presence Volume II, The intimacy of all experience”, 2011.)

Our relation to the world’s existence is somehow closer than the ideas of believing and knowing are made to convey.
Stanley Cavell (“The Senses of Walden”, 1972.)


Love for music enables the entire being flow into the notes of the clarinet, creating a seamless connection with the world. The model of an inner feeling opposed to an outer thing felt disappears.
