To Live

For me to “live life” is inseparable from communicating my life experience. I find life to be, essentially, an evolving phenomenon, a moving toward the future; toward greater complexity and consciousness. To be in this way I understand the importance of realizing what is authentic of my experience and shed what it is that I have become that is blocking that. Beatrice Bruteau indicates that our sense of self must change from the “dead” periphery of the personality description (“I am this and I am that”) to a living core of transcendent and creative freedom.

In that I must trust in something that I have been conditioned to avoid and that has involved attending to what is inwardly realized, shifting away from external authority that I have come to rely on in earlier development. “The abundant universal unconditional graciousness goodness givingness of our warmly personal God is our central reality, our root, and it’s secure. . . . You can realize it directly for yourself; you just have to pay deep attention to your own act of existing.”

The sharing, exploration and expression of what is arising in that experience of existence is a part of life.

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.
