Though we may keep a little quiet about this especially when young we tend deep down to be rather hopeful that we will eventually
Managed to find perfection in a number of areas
We dream of one day securing an ideally harmonious
relationship deeply fulfilling work a happy family life and the respect of others
But life has a habit of dealing us a range of blows and leaving nothing much of this array of fine dreams
Save some shattered and worthless fragments
It's at moments of disillusion that we might turn our minds to a concept drawn from Japanese Philosophy and in particular
from the Zen Buddhist approach to ceramics
Over the centuries zen masters developed an argument that pots cups and bowls that had become damaged
She simply be neglected or thrown away
They should continue [to] attract our respect and attention and be repaired with enormous care this process
Symbolizing a reconciliation with the floors and accidents of time
intended to reinforce some underlying themes in zen
The word given to this tradition of ceramic repair is Kin [TsUchi] Kin
Golden [Sookie]
Joinery it means quite literally to join with gold in
Zen aesthetics the broken pieces of an accidentally smashed pot should be carefully picked up reassembled and then glued together with lacquer
Inflected with the most expensive gold powder there should be no attempt to disguise the damage the point is to render the fault lines
Beautiful and strong the precious veins of gold are there to emphasize that breaks have a philosophical merit all of their own
the origins of Kin TsUchi are set a date the muromachi period When the shogun of Japan
Ashikaga Yoshimitsu broke his favourite tea Bowl and distraught sent it to be repaired in China
but on its return

He was once invited to a dinner where the host thought he will be impressed by an elaborate and expensive
Antique teacher that he had bought from China
but rick you didn't even seem to notice this item and
Instead spent his time chatting and admiring a braj swaying in the breeze outside in
Despair at his lack of interest once [wreak] you'd left the devastated host smashed the jar to pieces and retired to his room
But the other guests more wisely gathered the fragments and stuck them together through
Kinsuka when r Eq next came to visit the philosopher turned to the repaired jar and with a knowing smile exclaimed
Now it's magnificent
in an age that worships youth
Perfection and the new the art of consumer tains a particular wisdom as applicable to our own lives as it is [to] [potts]
The care and love expended on the shattered pieces should also encourage us to respect. What is damaged and scarred?
Vulnerable and imperfect starting with ourselves and those around us
