100 Lotus Flowers

2009: 100 Lotus Flowers taking me through a transition in my life. Each flower is a message which brings me closer to the goal. I try to come to terms with myself, and be myself. What messages do the flowers hold?
2013: What is the goal? I no longer know what it is, except for reaching the 100. But the 100 was not supposed to be the goal itself, but rather help reach the.....the.....I am lost, honestly lost. Everything I was striving for has diminished in importance. I do not know what to strive for. I think striving for anything now is pointless....but I will keep drawing and painting.
2014: A renewed sense of purpose, things seem to be falling into place.

100 Lotus Flowers, 100 points of healing.

Brightest Star - Lotus 62.

Lotus Flower #62- Brightest Star

Many see the sun symbol as a pagan symbol, and grant is a bad connotation because of the word "Pagan"

But what is pagan? Depending on where you are from, this could mean a person who is un-enlightened, hedonistic and all around seen to be as "bad."

But "pagan" was actually a broad term given to anyone who wasn't Jewish, Muslim or Christian.

The sun symbol, has a place of importance in the pagan, neopagan and occult faiths. (I use occult as a broad term to collectively express all the Western Mystic practices.)

As the brightest star/object within view; it served as a reference/symbol for being the best there is. Nothing shone brighter than it.

And pagans being very observant of the natural cycles, used nature to find wisdom.

Become as the SUN, shine your brightness forth...but understand that even the SUN sleeps and hides for a time. Appreciate the cycles of you inner being, shine when its the appropriate time, rest when needed.
The moon cycles at the four corners of this piece speak to the cycles as well......

Lotus 61- Peacock SymmetryLotus 61

Lotus 61- Peacock Symmetry

We are all the same you know. We are all the same person. There is only one person, one human really. What we are is that one human, who has grown up with different experiences.
We face different directions, seek different things and explore different aspects of the one thing...the human condition.

Bound as we are by the spirit flower.
