Namaste dear friend. Welcome to the collection "Transcendence". As I live in the world today I am reminded everyday that conditions are impermanent and life is most sacred. It is up to us to choose wisely and respond. Reacting is easy and we all do sometimes. Yet can there be a better way ?
The transcendence collection was inspired by a powerful lesson I learnt. I learnt not to react when another vented their frustrations in a disrespectful way. I used silence and entered a creative space of digital artwork and was amazed by how profound it was. There were those who held space for me until I myself could hold out on my own. The space we held allowed awareness, love, compassion, and grace to flow. It was really easy to feel justifiably angry and react however that would have made the situation so much worse. Solutions are never found at the level of the problem. I did feel hurt and sad at the time. I am human. Yet the entire whirl pool brought a new mastery in letting go.
Somewhere in that entire experience I saw the "other" as someone who was hurting and acting out of their own pain - my own heart melted with compassion and I found my way to gratitude. The old saying "attitude gratitude shifts everything" is so true.
We live during times of constant change and this reduces peoples head space. Powers of reasoning can be lost. I've seen so many people suffer because many lack the time to listen, understand, and look for long lasting solutions where everyone wins. Ego and competition are easy traps. In my own quest to create time and space I lean into silence, "Heart of Gaia" techniques, mindfulness, and artwork.
This collection was born in my own hours of need. The images have many layers and I hope it inspires you to create and breathe space into your life. Each image has movement within it from one reality to another and it is complete with words from the "Heart of Gaia" Pillar 1, Wisdom.
My hope is that viewing these images becomes like a mini journey home. I hope it helps you transcend your current reality and support you to enter a more beautiful one. Ancient wisdom always points the way to the refinement of the inner world and allowing the outer world to be a reflection of this inner landscape.
The nature of life is an evolutionary impulse that has a momentum to help us grow. Let us not be phased by the unpleasant experiences of life. Rather may we be inspired to rise above and be beautiful in heart, and mind and transcend; allowing our outer reality to mirror our inner richness.
Close your eyes. Place your right hand on your heart and your left hand towards the earth.
Breathe slowly and deeply. Connect with your breath.
Become aware of the sensations where your feet meet the floor.
Become aware of your body and the space around you
Now gently open your eyes and look deeply into each image.
Some of you may like to meditate with the Transcendence collection to music. I attach one of my own tracks here .. however feel free to listen to your own favourite music... Try it in silence and with music.
This is not a one time only experience. You are always welcome to return.
Often you notice different things in the images and have profound insights second and third time.
Take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about my work.
I hope you enjoy the site and take a moment to drop me a line.
