I believe the title perfectly describes this painting. This is a painting that came to me while in meditation. I saw a very dark and vast space, which had a ray of light that was vertical, creating a hollow tube, that had no end and no beginning. The only direction it traveled was up, not down. I saw many beings, which could have been the same being, clambering and climbing in this light, which had spirally, and twisted branches all through out the light. The beings were carefully climbing up this spiral, trying very hard to not touch the thorns that were everywhere. There were many different ways, that they could try to make the journey upward, but it was the being right in the center, and in the brightest light, that figured out, if you just trust the light in the center and raise your hands upward, the light will Carry you up and you will not be hurt from the thorns. It was the quickest way up!
Sometimes I get visions of paintings as analogies. I believe this is one of them. I think it's a metaphor for living one's life and Trusting the universe is definitely something I need to work on! It's amazing how much we think we can control, but actually we control so little; such as the beating of our own hearts.
