a little blog about art, shamanic visions, dreaming, and sharing of my artwork.

Please say a prayer for the Gulf coast BP oil disaster. Now is the time to raise our consciousness, to pray for peace and healing. It is a tragedy and I think we have only just begun to see what this act of corporate money -vs- safety will do to our fragile eco-system.
I asked; "What is my purpose?" the reply was; "To Do Gods Will."
The new paradigm wakeup call is the realization of our oneness, the Co-Creation of Cosmic Mind. It is a difficulty to shed the attachment to mind, ego, attachment to our soul vehicle, and just become. I do not know if I or anyone could succeed at that, and if you did wouldn't you be another Buddha or Jesus or Mohammed? I think most people would be too afraid to totally detach, because in our current way of thinking it would be too much like dying, and most of us are afraid of death. We have been living separately since the dawn of man, and now is the challenge to realize the oneness of all-cosmic mind. One can only continue to walk across the vast desert of our aloneness, following the voice within, searching for that oasis, that holy grail, which will quench once and for all this eternal thirst for oneness with God.
Or, one can just look around at our surroundings, people, plants, animals, things, ideas, and realize that, Hey isn't this God? I think so.
Which goes back to my earlier thought, the song phrase; "If God had a face, what would it look like?" Is not everything the face and mind of God?
I have not been doing much in terms of artwork since last November. I was so busy all last year, getting out a huge amount of work, printing, art shows. Since November I have been reading and contemplating, shifting and changing ideas and relationships.
During this time of stillness, I have been having a conversation with my angel guide, although I don't think of him as an angel. He is my gentle watcher. A phrase has been in my mind for months now; if God had a face what would it look like. It is a phrase from a song written and sung by Joan Osborn, a never ending song play in my mind. My guide will speak to me that way sometimes, I will get a random song, usually first thing in the morning, as a message to contemplate.
I look forward to my trip to Rome and Florence. Most of the artwork I will be studying are in churches, the works of Michelangelo, DaVinci, Raphael, Caravaggio-high renaissance artwork. How did the great masters see Gods face?
