Spirit

In another lifetime, I was an artist. So many moons ago that I can hardly remember. What I find interesting, when I do look back to what I was making at that time, is that the very same consciousness pervaded everything I did then, as it does today. Though I may have been working intuitively with symbols and ideas at that time, those aspects are now more deeply embedded in my awareness, I hope with a greater understanding at present.

The other thing that strikes me is how prophetic those ideas and symbols were. As if all along I knew exactly where I would be today. Evidence, I suppose of the role of intuition in the higher mind or the causal body.

I share a couple of images, fragments really. I like how honest they feel to me today, though they may be unresolved and unexplained here.
