I created this painting, after a vision I received during a meditation session. I saw a figure sitting quietly in the meditation pose, that was surrounded in Red clouds or mass. The Red represented our earth. It was full of sadness,sickness, anger, corruption; everything the opposite of peace. The figure was in a black cage in this Red, not able to escape. As I continued to meditate, I realized that just outside the cage it was in, was Green. The Green, represented everything good. It was Nature , Love and Peace. It calmed and contradicted all emotions in the Red. It was in all directions, surrounding the cage. Although the being seemed to be trapped within the cage, it was only a temporary illusion. The being could easily bypass the cage and reach for the Green. The peace surrounded the being all the time, and what connected it to the Green, was the inner light that was within the being itself. It was kept safe, despite being seemingly caged in the Red. It was constantly connected to the light. I tried to paint exactly what this meditation experience was but changed one thing. I decided to paint the sitting skeleton, in front of the cage, instead of behind it. At the end of this mediation, the cage disappeared completely, and there were no obstructions anymore to the light. When I came back from this mediation, I felt cleansed and healed. I believe this vision was intended not for me, but for me to share with others. I hope this art brings Healing, Love and Peace to all people who see it.
