Inviting Beauty to Look at Pain

posted in: Art Therapy 0
As you see

The areas overlap

And struggle with each other

For control of the same space

And what if they knew

That the same space

p1000407

Is open and given to every one of them

With no limitations

All with love and joy and acceptance

Be they as they want to be

And the radiating hurt

Is like roots

Trying to hold on

With fingernails

To a piece of ground with no water

Or food

But they can change their experience

And feel blessed

In being able to dance that dance

And infinite number of others

For all eternity

With nothing to lose

Nothing to gain

Just joy.

 

 

I used to be a graphic designer and an illustrator.  I became involved with the Chan Meditation Center and studied meditation and Buddhist knowledge with the late Master Sheng-yen from Taiwan. For twelve years I was in a process of deepening my meditation. I had many more experiences and insights and my life changed. After having illustrated more than 40 children’s books and writing two of them, I left this career too and went to New York University to study art therapy.
