Time and Eternity


Kali figure

Shiva figure




Yesterday’s meditation on St. Bridget suggests the above graphic summary of two rather important philosophical concepts. Representing Kali, or Time, is Judy Davis in “The New Age.” Representing Shiva, or Eternity, is sword-saint Michioka Yoshinori-sensei.  The relationship between these two concepts is summarized very neatly by Heinrich Zimmer in his section on the Kalika Purana in The King and the Corpse.

The relationship is also represented graphically by the “whirl” of Time and the “diamond” of Eternity.

On this day in 1944, Mondrian died.  Echoes of the graphic whirl and diamond may be found (as shown above) in his “Red Mill” and “Victory Boogie-Woogie.”


  1. You have interesting stuff to say. I have read a lot of your blog today.  Site looks a lot better.  But I turned off sound first!  I keep getting messages to update this thing and that, quicktime, but it messes up my machine, conflict somewhere….

  2. The New Age is a powerful, relentless film whose emotional and moral vacuum leaves us shaken, unwilling to believe that what we see is as real and common as we know it is.

    Interesting.  And I’ve just turned the corner on all the New Age hoopla myself.  There is nothing new about the New Age, and it appears to be a moral vacuum.  What you see is what you get.  Period.

    There is no big secret.  Plenty of confusion and speculation.
    No secret.
