Letting Go Of Barriers

These days much of my time is involved in connecting to and deepening a place of presence. There is a part of me that is engaged in the dualistic experience that is life on this planet. There is a part of me that is involved in witnessing my existence and slowly these two seem to be merging together. Attempts to express and reflect this very subjective experience involves the mediums of art and words. But these are often inadequate and limited in capturing the essence of this deeper more direct experience of being. As well I see the futility in the habitual way of defending  efforts to express my experience because in the end they are not the truth of what I am.

My hope through all of this is not to eliminate the ego or  duality or to arrive at some ultimate, ideal place but to see and let go of whatever should come into my awareness that interferes with a direct, open  and authentic realisation. Things change from this place of  seeing.

I find some satisfaction in the act of attempting to express my experience of life through painting, writing, language and other art forms. I have been painting for over thirty five years and combine my love of art with a meditative and contemplative way of life. I have an intuitive sense that true creativity is something that arises from beyond and through Qthe self that can be explored and shared through some form of expression although I always hope to open to the influence of that which is beyond my limited sense of self.
