The Gift of Change

There is something of our conditioned self that resists change and something of the human collective that resists it that extends from that. Perhaps as well there is stress involved in all kinds of change and transformation of form. There is a transformation of form implied in human change and their is stress in that. Things are born and come to die. I don’t adhere to the notion that suffering can be eliminated and in turn that it is something to be fixed. There is an aspect of being closed to change implied in that. This can serve to intensify the discomfort that change can bring. We can perhaps come to relate to that process of change in a different way than we have been conditioned to that involves opening within, attending to what is arising in change and the gifts it brings.

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.
