I write or paint most every day inseparable from reflection, contemplation and meditation. In this universe that is ever unfolding and changing I don’t look for security or liberation in these acts or in things external to me or in the pursuit of fixed promises. I have woken to the lie of self or any other incomplete idea or explanation that does not realize it’s own time bound limitation. Nothing is fixed. The only way now, for me is to allow myself to be immersed in that change and the consequences that it brings. Pain and suffering is inevitable in change, a necessary consequence of an unfinished universe. I do not seek to be liberated from that suffering but to be open enough to accept it and allow the change in me that it brings in its movement through me. A challenge for me is to use language and other mediums in a way that reflects, expresses and helps me to be with the impermanent nature of life, in seeing and being as I see it in an ever evolving world, relating to what arises in form out of the formless.
