Quotes for the day

***

“Continue in the direction of the Pyramids”, said the alchemist.

“And continue to pay heed to the omens.

Your heart is still capable of showing you where the treasure is.”
“Is that the one thing I still need to know?”
“No”, the alchemist answered.

“What you still need to know is this: before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way.

It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we’ve learned as we’ve moved toward that dream. That’s the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert,

one ‘dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon.’
“Every search begins with beginner’s luck.

And every search ends with the victor’s being severely tested.”

~Paulo Coelho

***

What?

You’re thinking for yourself?

You’re deciding on your own?

You’re applying your own yardsticks, your own judgments, your own values?

Who do you think you are, anyway?

And, indeed, that is precisely the question you are answering.

~Neale Donald Walsch

I have just been asked to do a new large commission…4 paintings! I am excited by the project, for one because when asked to paint for someone else, as an artist I have to get myself into that place in my head; that place where it is empty of my own directives, desires and thoughts. To paint someone Else’s vision I need to be emptied out. This is perfect timing, I am already empty…so therefore at my most useful point for this work. I don’t have to struggle to attain that state…I am there already…and I am grateful for that. What a gift, to find yourself ready for something new and then the gift of an opportunity arrives with bells on.
So, that’s some kinda fun!
I have my new effigy doll coming along…I want to mount it on a canvas then drown it all in resin. That’ll be fun. I will take some pictures soon when I get to a point that the project feels like it makes some visual sense.
The day has started without me…I must go get with the program.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.

    Cool Beans! Sounds like Kismit and all that jazz. And yes the day has started without me too. Happens more often than not in summer. (sigh) Happy Belated 4th. Good Luck with the commission.
