This is my new painting called “The Boat”. It is inspired by my own personal spiritual journey, as learned through the workings with my mentor Erika Niemann.
As we move into living life from the inside, rather than from the outside looking in, controlling every aspect of it becomes nearly impossible, as it is much like swimming in a river. Overwhelming and impossible to control. Life is rich, colorful and multifaceted with a lots of currents that can pull us into different directions. However, if we learn to work with life, trust and allow life to support and carry us, we may find an unprecedented peace, impossible to experience by living life from the outside looking in, fending for ourselves.
The best way to be in a symbiotic relationship with life and allow life to support us is by asking ourselves: “What most supports life in this moment?” The question puts us into the boat. The key to being supported by life is being in the boat.
