Living in the Moment

This past month of social isolation has allowed for more contemplative moments. One thing that I am more clear about as I settle inwardly, in presence, is that everything that I have used over the years to build a self image, that I unconsciously used to divert and distract from a greater truth of my existence is crumbling away. It was all so superficial, so it seems.

In being alone like this;in this awareness, the more conditioned and conventional habits fall away. There are less distractions and diversions to take refuge in. Presence is right there to be accessed.I am grateful for what that brings, being able to once again awaken in the morning and experience a child like sensation of looking forward to the day, with no plan other than to enjoy living it. This is something that I had forgotten in my becoming something other.

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.
