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.
If you don’t become the ocean, you’ll be seasick every day.
You do not know what wars are going on down there, where the spirit meets the bone.
-Lucinda Williams, “Compassion”
