Bodhisattva Between the Worlds
Here I am.
I arose from this.
I belong here.
Here, now, within and between the worlds
of ordinary and non-ordinary reality,
I am prism
allowing Light to come in, flow through,
become just what is needed in this needful world.
I live . . . . differently, now,
building on what came before, organically,
revisiting pattern, expanding with an aerial view.
No more pushing rivers that flow anyway.
I am flow. I am vibration.
I live in the spaciousness of All of reality.
With the gift of Light and color
I know radiance, and bring it into darkness.
To see All the Mystery, to share flow,
here I am.
HERE I am.
Hello dear friend,
As we move more steadily into fall (where I live), and on this Full Moon energy, I want to invite you to dream and ponder a bit today if you can.
This painting resulted from a lot of dreaming and pondering, especially about the kind of life I want to and need to live, so as to live as expansively and creatively as possible within the realities of this life, here, now. I was accompanied in this pondering by the most recent class I took with my painting teacher, Shiloh Sophia and her husband Jonathan Lewis, called Prism Leadership Lab. It sought to apply principles of quantum physics to leadership, by means of painting.
I loved experimenting in a different style than my usual, and hope to do more like this. Here are some of the “in process photos”. There were many stages and much writing in each stage. I had no idea what the finished painting would look like; I just kept painting the next stroke, adding the next idea.
With much love,
What an amazing process!! I love it!
It’s so fun to do, while also a little intense at times!
Through your powerful painting and your so timely words, I can feel your presence. Mysterious and gentle.
You have been a Light to me in my return to colors and creativity.Thank you for sharing !
Hope you are well
