A rock and a shadow
Stand on the flexible green
And a cloud comes
To cover them
It turns out
The shadows have been going on
From far in the past
And into the future
Unfinished life forms have only to ascend
As the blue haze is hinting
To come to a place
The life forms
Or does it only
The rock and the shadow seem to be me and my shadow thoughts.
The flexible green is the village where I grew up. Much of the shadows start early in life.
The cloud is the way our subconscious thoughts are unknown to us, until we learn how to hear them.
We know this, don’t we? The shadow thoughts are those that prevent the energy of our infinite self from being expressed by us in the life that we live.
Life forms are me and you and others. We constantly change, so we can be seen as unfinished, until we discover one day that we are like dreams. We always represent our state of mind of the moment.
Can we choose how we want to be?
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.
