A New Circle

Yesterday evening i went to the Ruins and took down the hanging sculpture of Big Heart of Humanity, the one with all the photos.

Big Heart of Humanity can’t be built from the outside.
It’s not something we can look at, not an object
It’s something growing within us and between us

Sat down in the middle of the empty, dark room, bright moonlight outside. Could see the evening star trough the big opening and hear the workers harvesting the wheat just next to the Ruin. Magic.

Stood up and gathered seven chairs and the long thick rope. The rope that hadn’t found it’s place in the original set up of the exhibition, but I always knew it had a place. I put the chairs in a circle with the rope around twice, once inside, once outside. So we can sit and hold the rope and also be held by it. Here we can be Big Heart of Humanity together in a collective exploration. Welcome!


The hanging sculpture was there for a month, it was true when I put it up. It has served well and been admired by many during the month it has been there. Maybe there will come a time, when I can use the photos again in a true way. Until then I deeply thank you all who contributed, you did that from your heart and your action was inside Big Heart of Humanity, but I turned it into an object and that is not true anymore …

    yes, I can understand that – the sculpture was not an object, but a conversation, a living thing that has to change – I wonder if the online version could stay, because it could keep changing, if pictures could keep being removed and added to it….
    greetings from an orange rising full moon in Scotland, where I am in a Buddhist Monastery for a few days of intensive practice… tomorrow is Buddhas enlightenment day….
    the awakening of not just one outstanding being, but of humanity as a whole – the evolutionary drive towards more consciousness, more ability to feel compassion, empathy, responsibility…
    Love, Hanna

    Dear Hanna, Yes, all the pictures are true and I’m sure I’ll find a way to share them in a way that will support our awareness of Big Heart of Humanity as us.
    Sounds wonderful with the full moon in Scotland!
    Big Heart, Stina
