The state of intellect by MonkeyShepherd  Goodbye reason by MonkeyShepherd  After 12pm by MonkeyShepherd  When I read by MonkeyShepherd  Fetal by MonkeyShepherd

My recent works has been a comment on the spirituality of learning and how it can alter conventional thought. For me there has been a isolation to it bordering on the surreal. The challenge as been creating lighting and compositions that substantiate the loneliness of learning. Sometimes learning something new can blow you far away from your own paradigms and adapting them to your reality can be a frustrating struggle. 
  • Listening to: No authority
  • Reading: Rational Zen
  • Watching: Very little
  • Playing: With my fragmented mind.
  • Eating: Rare meat!
  • Drinking: Because it's goes with my smoking.

OLD MAN: “A voice”?
MASTER LOKI: “Yes Old man, a voice…mysticism insists on this so called voice! It is a voice heard from beyond yourselves that we automatically become subservient to yet at first doubt. Further, from that point any form of intelligent enquiry shall be ignored as we seize to continue to learn because a previous authority has concluded that we can not question anything divinely inspired”.
OLD MAN: “Master, how shall you continue then”?
MASTER LOKI: “Old man, as I have by shamelessly stealing from various mythological and mystical writings that has come before us, after all, this how you entrap the simple”.
OLD MAN: “Master, tell me more. What did the voice say to Mara, what was the message”?
MASTER LOKI: “Certainly my friend, yet, I must point out that you are emotional and overly enthusiastic and thus have ignored my awareness”.
