Guiding Thought

Our heart-love establishes our inner-peace.

Solidly grounded in our own inner-peace, we approach all of life with love, compassion, and wisdom.

We live as our Self, shining with the beauty of the Love we are!

For now, let’s say the creation of art can serve one of two purposes

either a reaching to express beauty and creativity

or a transmutation of the lonely, dark places within

For the first, Van Gogh said, “I want to paint…with that something of the eternal which the halo used to symbolize, and which we seek to communicate by the actual radiance and vibration of our colouring”.

For the second, “art, music, and writing are the processes engaged in order to transmute the inner darkness, the lonliness, and fractured nature of the illusionary world”.

I’ve been feeling and working with more of the second recently.

I’ve been allowing something to come forth, as opposed to trying to consciously express the Guiding Thought in the picture. If you were to look at my very first Journey of the Heart, you would see symbolic representations of almost every Guiding Thought throughout that Journey. Now, there is abstraction–who knows what this means?

And yet, I feel a release doing these pictures of (apparent) abstract impressionism; I feel calm and peaceful. Something is transformed.
