Creating your way to genesis.


Hi, this article was inspired by the three principles method of Sidney Banks.

It just happened with no need of correction which is a rare occurrence in my writing experience.

I hope you enjoy it and will inspire you further.

 

Hi, welcome to the realm of no-thought.
You have finally found that quiet spot in the vastness of time.
You have slowed down your breathing to your heartbeat.
Exhaling emotions attached to a floating or frantic parade of noisy images.
Emptying mind-clutter, peeling off remnants of ancient wallpaper sticking faithfully to walls of generations and habits.
Finally letting go and giving into new design.
To the idea of nothing. Of everything.
Opening up to the awareness of what IS.
Listening to the sounds of silence.
Peeping through the keyhole of eternity.
Remembering that time stands still, every time you allow it.
Slicing through the race of man-made impatience and frustrations.
Allowing yourself to let life BE YOU. BE NOW. FEEL NOW.
Notice what sustains you.
Experience your body’s imprint on your mattress, chair or floor.
Sense all that surrounds you, all that contributes to your comfort and wellbeing. Perceiving the oneness with all elements. Celebrate its quiet yet sustainable presence.
Allow yourself that time of blissful emptiness.
Breathe it.
Mark it.
Into your mind and consciousness.
Etch it into your soul. Design it unto every square inch of your body. Sketch it into a habit.
Offering yourself the possibility of heaven RIGHT NOW.
Creating the notes of YOUR life.
Chanting the mantra of YOUR reality and allowing others to follow theirs.
Breathe it, welcome it and enter the strange yet familiar domain of unoccupied mind.

Carving your way back to Genesis.

Celebration


_20170912_100223

Hi everyone!
I couldn’t believe five whole years have gone by since I started this blog.
Forgive my absence.
Lately I have been having computer issues and couldn’t keep you updated with my work, the exhibition, my photography…
But I promise to start posting again as soon as it’s all fixed.
Only then will I feel entitled to fully celebrate this milestone ­čÖé
Best of luck to all my faithful followers and visitors and best wishes for a safe and warm winter!

How do we get rid of… The cobwebs of the mind ? 2010

The cobwebs of our mind
———————–

When we wake up in the morning, drunk from food, puffed and wheezing, that in itself should be a motivator, a warning…

Oblivious to the dangers, we put our bodies through, we live in a make-belief-world. We lie in bed every night, waiting to be taken to the land of weightlessness.

Years of drilled information leaves our mind with a pile of junk, only a thorough cleansing can get rid of.
Wash, scrub, scour, open up the windows and give an opportunity to a clean new slate!

What if we have too much data, too much ” education ” stopping us from keeping it the way it is… simple?
What if we could literally, build a mountain, by, tossing all the rules and knowledge we’ve accumulated throughout the
years, in a heap? Throwing in, the smallest detail… The thousand different diets, the dos-and-don’ts, stocked up analysis,
take the bewilderment and see the mass grow…

Hurling all the well meant advice, the quotes… chuck out the fuzziness, the distorted habits, the negative experiences
( learnt on the wrong ” benches ” of life ) the just-in-case all sized clothes, the preoccupations, and without hesitation go on adding up every single remnants…

Frustration, will ( or lack of it ) respect ( taken or given in the right or wrong places ) pride, exhilaration, jealousies,
( towards one’s success )

Do that, down to the last precision…

Stand a few steps back and look at the accretion. Admire the pyramid. See it in shape, height, width… Take ” physical ” distance
and see your mind detach from the hoard. Feel identification toward it, fade away.

Give this visualization exercise the opportunity to give you mental space and remoteness from the years of accumulation.
Observe how clean it feels… Now think… What are we left with? What are we confronted with?
once we discard the past, only then, do we realize that we can get down to the most important ” elements ” of this game we take too
seriously and call life.

It is US and the FOOD!

We are faced with the simplest of all decisions. Are we going to put it in our mouth or not? It’s as plain as it gets and can’t get
plainer. After throwing away all the complications our mind creates, we come to recognize it’s as clear as spring water.

The psyche is a dangerous neighbourhood we’ve designed based on a past that is dead and a unborn future.

If we could see this in all its transparency, we would easily burn away the cobwebs of our mind.

Welcome to my new blog.

I’m very excited to present to you, my paintings, Poems and O.A Essays I’ve been collecting in the past years.

Feel free to give positive feedback.

This is one of my favorite paintings I made of a lioness hunting in Kruger park, South Africa. My ” header ” picture is one of them too.
