STORY: For the last four years I have been swept into a spiritual storm. One of my guides is an Archangel, Raziel. I have been working with him since 2015. In 2017 he held out two golden books, but he said I wasn’t ready yet to receive them. Today I realize the books represent my story. I am ready.
Through this painting I am being asked to show you how the essence of me has always been me, so that you can understand the same applies to you. The Nothing Book was given to me by a friend in college. I have always used my pen as a way of expressing myself, so she wanted me to have a journal to document my thoughts. The book captures some poems and prose from childhood through college. Each are framed with colorful drawings. Of particular interest is the subject matter. Each piece suggests a fascination with the spiritual and the scientific, and a yearning to find the sacred, beauty, and justice in the world. I wrote a good deal about the relativity of time, the impact of love, and the majesty of nature. Huh. I am who I am. You are who you are.
There is a purpose for your being exactly you. What are you here to do? What part of the log of humanity is yours to carry? What can you offer? What brings you Joy? What connects you to the active Love that transcends all obstacles and barriers? What is your Truth?
