Chaos: Eye of the storm
[16”x20”] Acrylic on Canvas
You push someone too hard and sooner or later he/she is going to start pushing you back. It’s the natural way of working of things. And when talking of things, it applies to the mind as well.
To go to the other side of chaos the mind has to go through a chaos, but even though your logical mind may understand that, your core ego will do it’s very best to push it back. And then you reach a point where you see the vortex, the eye of the storm, but you are still afraid to acknowledge it. It can range anywhere from the playfulness of teenage love to understanding of zen. Even though they feel like transitory states of achieving a state of blissful ness, they require you to go through the eye of the needle, the eye of the storm. #2018minimumwageartist
If you are flirting with any such duality in your mind, look at the eye of the storm that you have been trying to look away from. Look into the eyes of the very thing that is your biggest fear. Just look. You don’t have to do anything.
It will go away.
Because just by the very fact of looking, by the act of watching, you have brought it from the very realm of unknown to known.
You don’t defeat darkness. You just acknowledge it.
