In the beginning, there was darkness.
First, diving into the unknown deep ocean
Adventurous and a bit like a child, or a fool,
I submerge into the deep blue.
There, in the nowhere, undeniable diversity of archaic forms, old abandoned structures, the debris of personality.
An inner landscape inhabited by beasts of a ferocious, ever-changing nature
who introduced me to chaos.
My fingers couldn’t grasp a solid thing.
My feet weren’t able to touch the ground.
I was bounced around into incoherent tides of my mind.
I've met the reality of suffering from my body.
I was thought stillness.
warm pools of compassion,
sand beds of forgiveness holding my feet,
Raising my body to wellbeing
where I learned to swim the tides.
My inner tides are like seasons.
Which brought me to realize the reality of causes and conditions.
Dolphins and whales,
the compassionate mentors who came to rescue my poor body from drowning,
they introduced a way to the shore.
Their way of breathing.
A present consciousness of breath where I became aware and observant
as reality revealed
and truth worked like
enzymes through stains,
Emotions were raised and dissolved.
Sensations were raised and dissolved.
the intuition of the path
Then, light was created
and with it,
Art is a path and a technology I learned to heal,
educate myself, and persevere.
Imprints of causes and conditions
became stories I crafted to offer today and in the future;
Like shaping a stone unaware of time,
like seeding a fertile ground for a garden.
The art I share
is an invitation for interaction,
touch and care.
A language beyond words,
speaking the cosmic creation
of encompassing love.
With this craft, I dwell and persevere
for the continuation of an endless story.
I am one with the nectar of life,
self-diluted into the plasma of being,
revealing new shades
and composing the canvas of life.
