The art of happening basically consists in the practical ability to respond to the possibilities offered by the moment, cultivating whatever it is that allows us to be in the midst of things, to never take things for granted, to not presuppose the outcome of things.
Experimenting with the art of happening is to embody experience in itself. It means allowing ourselves to learn to go along with time and to discover in this flow the possibility of dwelling in any space. Perhaps more a question of listening than of speech, the ability to capture what is happening is to step outside time itself. You have to train yourself in this time of happening, to allow yourself to be attentive, a state obstructed by intentionality. To perceive from a relational totality instead of from separate individualities. Where every instant is potentially a door that opens.
