Great subject! Thank you. I just wish I had more time today to discuss everyone's great and positive thoughts.
I think (thinking is a linear description here of a dynamic we can't describe), that we are like Ice in Water. As we define the world, it
solidifies. We slow it down to freeze solid, so to speak. Otherwise it is all infinite potential. Collectively we make the world by agreement. It's
laws, potentials and limits are all just what we make it. All LOVE originally.
Like many artists, it's my life's work to bring vision to our collective potentials beyond the norm. I'm a visionary surrealist artist (among my
many unpaid professions) and because I also work in very technical and technology driven subjects I have a very wide big pic vision. I have
experience with mystical states and lucid awareness, but bring the energy of such perception to others through the work I do. We all do this to some
extent, and my own method is just more visual. Our eye-brain connection is the largest portal to our being here, so visual works great for coaxing
positive or negative vision collectively.
I found that if you are in a particular state of consciousness when you create the work, be it writing, painting, singing, illustrating, whatever you
do actually, you can actually imbue the work with that spirit. Really! At one of my first art showings I had a person come up to me (obviously an
empathic) and he told me exactly the "intent" I was focused on when I did the painting. Even though no "visual" symbology was in the art! that
happened more and more as the years went on.
Some Yogis will not eat the food prepared if the person preparing it is in a bad or negative state. We actually put ourselves into what we do, and
others pick it up. You have heard of haunted items from antique stores?
So do what you love and do it with a good feeling. Then it goes on as such.
Here is one of my images. It went all over and was a Christmas magazine cover in Germany a couple years ago for the second time. 10 years earlier it
was on the same cover, and they wanted it again.
I did it from a William Blake poem you might remember. The title of the art is "Like Grains of Sand
Auguries of Innocence William Blake
To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour.
William Blake 28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827
I am very lucky my work has been published in several continents and seen by millions. I was early on aware of the responsibility for such a gift, and
was careful I did not darken my spirit with negative or limiting states. My spiritual path was AS an artist. So I put my heart and love into my work.
I imagine what the world would be like if everyone did that. Even the most mundane tasks can benefit all from such a spiritual center.
I'm still poor as a church mouse, but rich in the spirit. Remember that in hard or dark times.
