From the artist:
In Buddhism there is a concept called 'ESHO FUNI', which translates roughly as 'oneness of self and environment'. When the Buddha nature is activated and called on in the individual it is also manifested in the environment. This piece is about the most profound experience I had of this. It occurred in a little car whilst driving along Hastings seafront . My life was in a very dark place and I was chanting not to weep and completely fall apart at my mother in laws dinner table. A slight shift in my perceptions became the cause for me to feel the most overwhelming, wonderful and paradoxical feeling of 'OK, ness', peace, security and unconditional love I have ever experienced. It was life changing for me. My problems did not go away, my life was still a mess and no, I didn't fall apart at the dinner table. I did however gain a personal certainty that there is something incredibly profound in life that exists within and without the human being....sounds a bit weird, but that's life I guess!
