luk3y_u The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway

sahra_luke For many, the intricacy of this recycled-wood structure is unmistakable: it is the Temple, a place of rest, reflection and release in the heart of Black Rock City. The building, like the desert city itself, is temporary. At the end of the week-long Burning Man festival, it is burned to the ground -- thousands of mementos and burdens burn with it.

But though the design changes every year, this gorgeous geometry has become iconic. And though the community disperses every year, just a glimpse of this glowing wood reminds me of a special space - a place - a people - that needs no name or nation.
Art is sacred.

fugioka "UNTITLED FROM THE CANCER SERIES"
In his early work, David Best rxplores themes of diseas, decay, healing, hope & spiritual transformation.
A mask evokes the imagery of Japanese Butoh dancers performing w/white faces, shaved heads and open mouths.
Curiosly, it hides yet another larger mask to which it is attached.

gitaparkour Day 6: The Temple.
A 37' art instillation by the David Best, the artist that builds the Temple at Burning Man annually. "When we finish the temple and turn it over to the community it is an empty building," Best explains. "They bring their [m]others... they bring their best friends, their weddings and their celebrations to it. And then it becomes something. It has no life until the community brings that life to it." ... So, on Day 6, i sought shelter from the rain. No people in sight, but the echoes of the prayers remain.

seeninsanfrancisco Seen on Patricia's Green- Hayes Valley. The Hayes Valley Burning Man Temple was constructed to be on display for 1 year from June 2015-June 2016. It is a replica of a temple seen on the Playa in the desert during the popular Burning Man festival. The artist is David Best, and his vision for the temple is to have the community write wishes and messages to loved ones on its once blank wood pieces. After 7 months of being on Patricia's Green, is has been filled with such messages. Check it out before it's gone this summer #hayesvalley #sanfrancisco #realestate #temple #burningman #davidbest #sfinsta 1mon
