“This Heart of Mine”

From Paradise eNow

Author's translations of Omar Khayyam.

Heart of mine, listen, you will not unravel life mystery

All those learned theories of yours fall short

Here and now with a cup and wine make your paradise

There and that paradise, you may find or may not

The eternal question like an Albatross hangs around the neck and overhead. What is my heaven on this earth in this life? i.e., what can give me a life purpose and fulfill my existence? In other words: what can most satisfy my whole being--soul-spirit while I live?

I asked and wondered.

The hues finally answered. "Colors, stupid. Paint us across the canvas of your consciousness. Color your soul beautiful. Don't you realize who we are? We are your promised Nirvana in this life here and now."

I heeded the message and here is my paradise "enow" series of abstract works.

By the way, "enow" is an archaic word meaning "enough."

Alchemy

In one-word Alchemy is about "transformation" of the psyche. The rest is Carl Jung.

The animal helpers
The animal helpers are the archetypal figures of the inner world. Their ties symbolize the service and devotion they offer us. They represent our instinctive emotions. The animals are intuitive guides to the spirit world. Essential to a life journey and shamanic journeys of spirit.

Anima / Animus
The images are my version of the universal archetypal figures in the inner world of our psyches.
