"All at once, without warning of any kind, I found myself wrapped in a flame-colored cloud... I knew that the fire was within myself. Directly afterward there came upon me a sense of exaltation, of immense joyousness accompanied or immediately followed by an intellectual illumination impossible to describe... I saw that the universe is not composed of dead matter, but is, on the contrary, a living Presence; I became conscious in myself of eternal life... I saw that everyone is immortal; that the cosmic order is such that... all things work together for the good of each and all; that the foundation principle of the world, of all the worlds, is what we call love, and that the happiness of each and all is in the long run absolutely certain." —R. M. Bucke Featured art: "Oversoul," by Alex Grey, 1998-99, oil on linen.

The triangle, represents the ascending flame of higher consciousness.The open eye is a symbol of vision and the awakened state. The alphabet is unpronounceable because there are infinite, unique ways of expressing the sacred.
Divine Feminine, I bow before thee, Prostrate myself to thee, Goddess circumference of the manifest, O Mother, O Sister, O Beloved Wife and Daughter, Muse-whisperer inspiring us to Greater Glory. Happy #internationalwomensday Featuring a photo from the performance piece "Goddess" circa 1989. Allyson and I, with the help of friends and passersby, laid out 5,500 apples at the shape of the Goddess. Then Allyson sat at the heart center of the Goddess nursing our daughter Zena while I performed one hundred prostrations at the feet of the figure. The creation of the figure was a ritual acknowledgment of our source of life, the Mother Earth, who nourishes us and whom we must preserve if we are to survive. At day's end friends assisted us in reboxing the apples, which were then donated to a shelter for homeless families.
Any subject can be the seed of art. Artists often mirror the chaos of their lives or the madness of the times with symbolic reflections of humanity's darkest hours. The expression of shadow offers catharsis and acknowledges the truth of misery. Look at the origins of jazz and the blues. Suffering can give birth to new art forms. When we feel our soul is lost, an appreciation of art and music restores us because we see a sacred reflection of where we are at and/or where we need to go. Symbols that bring opposites together, icons that unite polarities, can offer healing in a time of cultural fragmentation. . . Excerpt from a recent article from Revolver Magazine.
