What is The Current

The Current is the underlying and connective energy of the Universe.  It is the Poetic Architecture of creation and the single most important concept in Cyprianism.  It is also, however, one of the most difficult to explain.

We do not have the means to codify and quantify It. Thus, for centuries, many have been satisfied with referring to It as the “spiritual”. But It is not other-worldly.  It is an energy that tangles and intermingles with our own, asserting Itself subtly, allowing those who seek Its mysteries to resonate in ineffable ways.

It is the center of true creativity and the force that powers it.  It is Presence.  It is cadence.  It is vast enough to be peaceful, yet personal enough to adapt in a breath.  It is always moving, yet rarely is It linear.  It is Sexual – chaotic, transcendent, ruining.  It exists in horrible, primal Nature yet It is also the Beautifully clever architecture that dares to defy it.

We seek to understand It through creating. And also through analogies and symbols. It flows like a current of water or air.  It connects and charges like a current of electricity.  And It is the current moment – now.

Yet we must also understand that we do not need to compute It, or weight It, to understand It.  Its mystery is Its essence. A veil drawing us beyond.

 

It is said that “a flower is beautiful, and a flower garden is Beautiful.”  The Current is that Poetry which enables this subtle, powerful difference.
