I paint in various styles from abstract to imaginary landscapes. This page shows a few of my seascapes. You can see more here.
the coarseness of this California bedspread
the softness of Pashmina earlobes
the friendly ocean breeze whispering good morning.
the children's screams of discovery
the gargling fountain splashing sounds.
the slamming of hotel doors
the rushing helicopter chopping space.
I see beyond these three walls
far beyond these objects
palm tree paintings and chocolate furniture
melt into Me.
they originate and vibrate in Me
I am left with an infectious friendliness
unwound from the thoughts of my mind.
Try an experiment. Stop what you're doing right now and listen. Notice all the sounds that you can hear. If you like, write them down in a journal.
What am I hearing right now? I hear a car whooshing down the road. A dog talking about the car whooshing down the road. The furnace fuming. The refrigerator gurgling. The fly buzzing against the window pane. I hear the sounds of my breathing. I notice the subtle sounds of my thoughts. I sense silence underneath it all. I detect a playfulness in the quietness. I laugh. I hear the cosmic hum of the universe. I feel connected to everything and everyone with sweet love.
Being aware of what is going on, both in and around you, has many benefits. It helps connect you to all levels of your being: physically, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually.... This is integrating, balancing and healing. In this state of openness, you are more likely to receive insights and practical information which contribute to making the right choices. Also being aware connects you to the present moment which can be more powerful and blissful than the past or the future. Think of other benefits and write them down in your journal.
Try another experiment. Next time you drive somewhere familiar, have your phone and the radio off. Next time you do a mundane task like washing the dishes, do it in silence. If you are used to a lot of external stimulation, initially you might not like doing this. Be patient and try it for a little while and then reevaluate. If you feel calmer or are sleeping better, consider having more quiet time, especially in the hour before you go to bed.

Layer upon layer of unfoldment within light. At some point energy came up from the earth up through the chakras which were bathed in light but each clear chakra was a bubble and the energy rose through them rendering an inaudible tone for each. The sequence continued – energy from earth, through each chakra, delivering a silent tone. The pace continued to accelerate then there was just a rush of that energy flowing unobstructed through the chakras and up and out of the top of my head to the environment. The whole internal subtle body was awake with white light flowing light from earth to heaven. Today during my Transcendental Meditation program that white light flow is now golden sparkling light – vibrant in itself."
