|In May of 2010, I began painting again after a break of 26 years. Although I had done a few water colors when I was 16, I had not done much painting in the years that followed.
A few years ago, I started meditating, and was soon introduced to Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP). As I continued with my yoga practices, my inner silence increased. Initially, I experienced this beautiful freedom solely in meditation, but bit by bit, it began to pervade my daily life and has stabilized into my everyday living. I feel unspeakable gratitude for being blessed with this stillness and peace and freedom.
When I started painting again, from this place of stillness, I watch the colors merge and create the beautiful paintings. I can’t really say I create the paintings, because any time my mind is actively deciding what to do, the paints and colors just don't flow. However, when I stop, I become silent, I ask the divine/stillness to paint. Then, the colors, the shades, the paint, the brush strokes, it all just flows. I...|
|Come create with me...|
Step Back You are in a room ... filled with pleasure, pain, conditioning, evaluation, understanding, solutions, techniques, love, knowledge, noise, silence, highs, lows, giving, taking.
You know all there is to know, you see all there is to see, there is expansion happening ... you are increasing your capacity and moving to the edge of the room...
|Fall in love with...|
Fall in love with the gift being given to you
Not the box it comes in.
Fall in love with the silence
Not the practices that bring you silence.
Fall in love with the truth being revealed to you
Not the guru or system that is delivering the truth.
We miss so much by focusing on the form that delivers the truth to us.
The ego will analyze, judge, defend, a guru or a system.
That is what the ego loves to do..
Let it go my dear
Don't hold on to what is no more
Let it go
Let go so you can make room
For something new...
Something that is waiting patiently round the corner
Waiting for you to let go and make some space
So it can sneak in and fill your heart.

Walking backward into the ocean..
Wondering if the next wave will hit me hard or be gentle..
Afraid of the unknown I step into...
based on the memories of the past waves that hit me.
Just turn around..
Now you can see the waves as they form..
Each one has nothing to do with the waves that passed by..
Each wave is new.
Walking backwards into the future..
