As usual, I began today’s picture without knowing where I was headed with it; it unfolded with each new element. All I knew is that there were upward  triangles and horizontal lines.

I did the triangles first because, though I could “sense” the horizontal lines, I did not know how/where they were placed; and it felt more specific today than it usually does. I could not haphazard a guess at where or how the horizontal lines were placed (like I usually do); the horizontal lines were to be specifically placed.

Once I got the triangles done, I did the outer-most horizontal lines; at that point I still did not know where the rest of the lines were going to go. Only when I finished the first set of horizontal lines (the outer-most) did I “see” where the next set was going to go. By the time those were done, I knew I had a pattern.

Then I was able to relax into the pattern, and as I did so, I felt myself connect to something different than “just” the Guiding Thought. In doing the pattern, I was calling up an inner connection to ancient (in America, we may say “native”) peoples; people who used lines and geometry in their pottery, weaving, and painting. I felt the rhythm of the pattern, if that makes any sense. I felt something that was “not me” and was “not the Guiding Thought”.

I was connected to that something, but I can not tell you what it is, or much more about how it felt, other than it was rhythmic and expansive.

When I was done with the horizontal lines, I felt like I wanted to do some of my “streaming upward lines”, but I usually ask the picture what it wants, or “what’s next”? The answer was clear: it’s done. There is complexity in the simplicity of this picture. There is beauty in simplicity. Let it be.
