Wabi-sabi is the art of finding beauty in imperfection: it values simplicity, uncluttered, underplayed, and modest surroundings. Authenticity is key to wabi-sabi philosophy: the presence of cracks and scratches in things are considered to be symbolic of the passing of time, weather, and loving use–and should be embraced. Another facet to wabi-sabi is the idea of the “obvious pretty” vs. “unique beauty.”
A great approach to life, I say.
At your birth a seed is planted. That seed is your uniqueness.
It wants to grow, transform itself, and flower to its full potential.
It has a natural, assertive energy to it.
Your life’s task is to bring that seed to flower, to express your uniqueness through your work.
