In the myriad of ways to realize our essential nature the way of Beauty is perhaps the least obvious, yet most mysterious. The sense of beauty is not an aesthetic concept or sentimental
feeling but a powerful throb within consciousness, a reflection of its own magnificence. Although some traditions dismiss creativity as nothing but volitional activity and therefore causal in its nature, if we are opened to another possibility we might uncover the inner artist and the very reason behind existence. Extreme sensitivity to beauty–with harmony as underlying structure of all formations–stupefies the mind of its entanglement in dual structure of the brain, even if momentarily, giving one direct and palpable experience of unity amidst diversity. This, when cultured enough
and brought to the level of one-pointed recognition – from cathartic experiences in the arts of various forms, to most mundane of encounters in daily life – culminates in a highest state
of Aesthetic Rapture. At once, an outpouring of creative impulses and bathing in the light of one’s own self-recognition. This is an invitation to re-evaluate the nature of experience and to reclaim your divine status. The only quest here is in beholding life awakening through you as existence itself. This is the Path of Beauty…

”…As an artist, already from an early age, I’ve noticed how every experience has a certain resonance… a certain texture, a certain color, a certain flavor… And even a certain dimension where the experience felt most compelling…

These experiences were the budding impulses of creative outpouring eager to blossom within my being, with the senses as the apertures, both capable of absorbing or allowing the light of my own awareness to illumine reality into an extraordinary event filled with presence, or to rob me of my own Self…

How all these was arising was not always clear, but there was this mixture of intimacy and detachment – I knew this to be an inseparable part of my own self as a passionate but uninvolved spectator.

Wasn’t long before that I’ve realized the terrifying Power of Beauty as the delight incomparable to any as the essence arising deep within my own being.

…I’ve never really considered myself to be a seeker and the quest was not so much in finding the way out, but rather the way in… into that mystery of perception where the sanctity of the senses – as divine agencies – culminate in a state of the Aesthetic Rapture… where the Self beholding its own magnificence as this experience…

Way before the mind could be converted into other possibilities and philosophies where this phenomenal existence is seen and dismissed as an illusion arising in consciousness, I’ve realized, that my own breath is the ebb and flow to measure infinity itself… and my senses are divine instruments eager to be tuned into their finest level of resonance, so as to hear the ‘unheard’ voice of Creation arising within my own Being…

This (teaching) is an invitation to re-evaluate the nature of experience and to reclaim your divine status. The only quest here is in beholding life awakening through you as existence itself… This is the Path of Beauty…

The quality of our experiences are based on the level of our consciousness. The World out there is the way we perceive it in here and that’s not a static affair, for our reality changes with our perception of it. Everything unfolds in that creative tension between the subject and the object and the relationship between them. It is for that reason the refinement of perception is seen as an indispensable part of any spiritual progress… until subject and object, lover and beloved, are drowned in the Sea of Love…

This is not a concept but a revelation upon which the sanity of our lives depends. The sanity of our civilization… This revelation is what connects us to the very ground of existence.

This sanctity is life awakened to Silence steeped in Bliss – it is a stream flowing through you as wakefulness of your own awareness…

That sacred flow – though an inherent part of the river of being – is in need to be invoked through direct partaking, and diving into the depth of that invocation… again and again…”

Every experience on the plane of sensory, mental or subtle perception is a manifestation of unity in diversity—a sublime intimacy of an unbroken stream emanating from the Spiritual Heart as creation in all its multiplicity. Each and every experience is not a random event empty of purpose and fragmented to the whole, but an integral part of the supremely orchestrated stream of awareness directed outward as this universe. This sweet and intense outpouring is the Triangle of the Heart – the very Being-Consciousness-Bliss that is the substratum and the expressive power of Awareness to will, know and act. This triangle finds its expression on all respective planes of creation down to every experience born of sensory perception.

The triangle of the powers of Will, Knowledge and Action as the pulsation of the Heart of Consciousness and the source from which flows all creation. This Triangle of Will, Knowledge and Action is a universal womb, the Yoni, a throbbing matrix of waves underlying all formations. This pulsation, this emission within Consciousness, ebbs and flows in waves of diversity yet always remains as unity of seer, seeing and seen. (This is an introduction to the theme of the post-conference workshop entitled ‘The Triadic Heart of Awareness’.)

Igor Kufayev has been sharing his revelations into the essence of Being since 2002. Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan and classically trained in art from an early age, he was recognized as something of a prodigy. A one time student at the St Petersburg’s Academy of Fine Arts, he had his first solo exhibition at the age of twenty five and by his early thirties enjoyed an international art career in London.

At the age of thirty six Igor had undergone a radical transformation of consciousness which subsequently blossomed into spontaneous unfoldment of Grace. He abandoned his art career and for the next few years continued long hours of meditation, integrating expanded state of awareness throughout all his interactions.

Igor points to the integral process of Self-realization where all cognitive and mental processes are orchestrated by awakened Latent Energy – the Creative Potentiality of Pure Awareness – and it is the physiology with its nervous system, that acts as a support for individual consciousness to mature into full Enlightenment. It could be said that his methods are rooted in Tantra, having studied such diverse traditions as Vedanta, Tantra, Sufi and Zen he remains elusive to categorization. Saying that: ”Abiding in a state of spontaneous absorption transcends the boundaries of any given truth based on intellectual grasp of ultimate reality…
