To Find Our Way Back

If  it turns out that the truth of life is that we all cover over our vulnerability and insecurity to the point that we have lost touch with it than how would we proceed to live from that place of awareness? We have incredible difficulty being with our vulnerability and why shouldnt we be this way. We have been raised and conditioned to avoid it and to pursue some illusion of security.  So we don’t really know how to be with our own sense of uncertainty or insecurity, only to look for ways to avoid or escape from it and to escape or avoid those who bring us  too close to it.  

How  can we truly be compassionate if we can’t except this in ourselves or from this limitation to others. If we are denying this reality of ourselves that is at the centre of what it means to be human it is no wonder that we have gone astray and that we can’t find our way back. We just go on looking in the wrong direction. for ways to bring us more security however short-lived it may be and however much it veils us from truth.

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.
