When I was a kid, maybe 6 or 7 my Dad asked me if, like the rest of the family, I was a Buddhist. I replied I was Bon Buddhist with Shamanic tendencies. He said I couldn't be, I had to choose one - That concept seemed ridiculous to me, then and now. Why an earth can't we pick what systems, ideologies, philosophies, and magick feels right for us? Are we to simply follow diligently in the footsteps of our ancestors, or are we to build upon all that they have shared and take it somewhere new - To something that fits us uniquely... ??
From the AW20 collection Astral Ancestors:
The inspiration for the Astral Ancestors collection is a scent - A perfumed oil that captures the spirit of an imagined journey - From the Earth's Core to Outer Space.
"There was something undefined and complete, existing before Heaven and Earth. How still it was, how formless, standing alone and undergoing no change, reaching everywhere with no danger of being exhausted. It may be regarded as the mother of all things. Truthfully it has no name, but I call it Tao." (Tsu, 1972)
