Nr 20 kaasEpifanio no 20 investigates the essence of spirituality and its various ways of expression. Michael A. Singer writes in his book “The Untethered Soul”: Ultimately, the word “beyond” captures the true meaning of spirituality. In its most basic sense, going beyond means going past where you are. It means not staying in your current state. When you constantly go beyond yourself, there are no more limitations. There are no more boundaries. Limitations and boundaries only exist at the places where you stop going beyond. If you never stop, then you go beyond boundaries, beyond limitations, beyond the sense of a restricted self. 

What is spirituality? How to be successful in both the spiritual and material world? What was the world like in 1022, what is it like in 2022 and what will it be like in 3022? Answers to these and many other questions are being sought by spiritual mentors, architects, artists, writers and other creative people. In the current issue I interview my spiritual mentor Maria-Reene, who heals people and directs them to the right path in both spiritual as well as in material issues.

I conducted the other interview with Margus Maripuu – a channeller, schoolteacher and gardener. I have known him ever since we met at his spiritual seminars. In his essay writer Mathura emphasises the different understanding of spirituality in the Orient and the Occident: The Western notion of “spirituality” stands in for one’s mental and intellectual capabilities. In the East, on the other hand, education has traditionally meant education of the spirit, and wisdom is only applied wisdom, expressed not so much in man’s knowledge, but in his personal qualities and insight.

Harry Pye praises the English culture researcher Stephen Ellcock, who has for years sought unexpected images from different cultures and eras, and has now included the best of them in books, such as “The Cosmic Dance”, “The Book of Change”, “All Good Things” and “England on Fire”. Jan Kaus analyses his favourites among artist novels that have been published in Estonian over the years.

Vilen Künnapu shares his thoughts about time, space, art and architecture. The article is illustrated by his painting of St Francis talking to birds and by a selection of paintings by Alberto Künnapu who began painting only recently.

Our man in Jamaica, artist and reggae DJ Tarrvi Laamann compares cultural spaces in Jamaica and in Estonia, talks about his creative work, including his artist’s residency. I also posed questions to the young Tartu painter Ingmar Roomets, in whose words spirituality constitutes a journey towards your own divine essence and the highest potential… On that path we learn to accept life more bravely – the whole beauty and pain of being human. To me, spirituality symbolises for example peeling an onion, where layer by layer we rid ourselves from traumas and earlier restrictive beliefs.

We also publish a selection of simple, but deep poems by Kai Kits. The author believes that humankind is on their way up, although it may not seem so.

The new issue of Epifanio offers readers advice how to expand and move forward from the point where we happen to be at the moment. Because, as Buddha says: Love yourself, as you are the only person who is with you all your life.
