: Psico•Design ep. 8 : STONE BALANCING

Stone balancing is an ancient and millenary art in which stones are joined on top of one another in a stunning statuary structure. It leads to the balance of contrasting forces having different weights and opposed to each other.

 

with this discipline, you can turn a pile of stones into a piece of art

 

the stones join together in an absurd and disconnected way

it seems impossible

 

visually speaking, the message crossing the brain of who watches stone balancing is the following:

it is crazy

but possible

 

the impossible loses value and becomes possible

 

let’s think about the impossibility of doing something

of managing something

of overcoming something

and, at the same time, let’s also think that after all, it is possible

 

after all, perhaps, we have already made it possible

or we do know how to make it possible

 

with calm and inner peace, with slow and managed movements

 

at the same time, when we see a pile of stones joined on top of one another, we also think of something that is likely to be very heavy

urgent

 

but instead, it seems to be light and elegant

a pile of giant stones balancing on a small angle and rising easily

 

the truth is that all this enormous weight scatters into the forces of the universe

 

stone balancing is related to those things that are hard to deal with

hard to fix

hard to rebalance

 

it is also a concept that makes us understand how to balance these forces

the ability to sort things out

the ability that we may be aware of having, or perhaps it’s what we’re looking for…

 

the piles of stones also want to tell us something else

 

in the hiking paths of our mountains

but also in the spiritual ones, such as the Camino de Santiago

or in the treasure hunts…

 

the piles of stones are a signal

a guidance

a safe point of arrival

because somebody else already passed from there and, by adding another stone to the pile, they want to show you the way and tell you that they’re safe

they want to tell you that “so far so good”

they want to tell you that they achieved another milestone

 

they want you to know that you are safe, with a safe guidance by your side

 

with love,
