257. Layers

P1000426

Yesterday and today I did two new paintings. I did them small. You finish faster this way and are able to see what you made immediately.

I look at the second one now, the one I just finished.

The first one is also interesting to share and maybe it will be in the next entry.

I wonder again about the function of the second layer, the layer of the colors.

The way it looks in this painting is that the line-work is the story, rich in details, like reality itself. It also means that it has in it all the stories that I have used to create this reality. That’s just another way to say it.

And the colors layer with the simplified shapes is a second way to tell that same story. Only it is devoid of the dramas of the first layer and loaded with (my) sense of beauty, which is a characteristic of the language of the real.

These two layers/languages work together through me to create my experience of everything. I experience all the busy details with all the contrasts, difficulties, hesitations, scares and daringness. And I also experience the deeper play of the energies that reveal more beautiful mixtures as steps occur. Again, when I write ‘beautiful,’ I mean my experience of beauty. In the deeper layer there is a sense of peace that is not in the story level.

The lines can be irritating, worrisome, too fast to attend to in a full way, but the existence of the deeper view at the same time and in the same place gives the calm feeling of: everything is okay. We are moving from one beautiful thing to another. Things work together. It is a good world, hiding right under the busy illusion.

You choose to go out (into reality) and you become more worried and more irritated. You choose to step in and you heal. You find the freedom and the satisfaction of meeting with your true self.

What is your true self?

It is a moving target. It is always in the deepest place that you can access now. Tomorrow it may be even deeper.

    My first impression was of how we humans are all inter-connected in some way or other – not always harmonious. Then taking a step back, it looks like an old tree in winter mode when all the branches are bare, tangled and mysterious, suggesting fairy tales. The tree itself is beautiful and shines out the promise of Spring and new growth, Wonderfully thought provoking.

    This is so very true for me, so Real. Everything perceived, is a reflection of our own mind, our own story, our own experience and serves so such beautiful purpose. To return us to what lies beyond projection at the deepest core of a loving Self. A perfect design to “step in and heal” by meeting the exhilarating experience of greeting a Self that serves less oneself than others and to know the difference by confronting our motivation with each choice we make.

    The layers shield and reveal, bags filled with truth and what masquerades as truth. And at the moment of revealing the difference we take a deep sigh.

    Thank you
