Before the Manifestation of Beauty

What I love the most about Art is the spirit of complete Surrender it awakens in one~ No matter how appealing to the senses the external world seems, it pales in comparison to the high degree of Beauty creativity exposes one to…. this process tames the ego’s tendency to be lured by superficiality~

Creativity orchestrates moments during which the false ego gently bends until it breaks, it makes way for the majestic soul which pushes one to be deeply quiet and to listen and to let the spark-Soul be… there is such Beauty that surges from this mysterious state, the artist’s final work we see is only a fragment of this untold Beauty which is expansive, unfathomable and divine.

Let us embrace whatever dissolves the ego, the separator from the All~ness of life. Once the distracting ego is bent before the manifestation of Beauty, we do observe the new gained suppleness of the mind, the gentle flow of pure kindness it gives off in compassion to all life. Externally this is expressed too in varied ways, through the grace of anyone who has been subjected to such a rare experience which softens one to a degree that is beyond imagination.

On this note, I just completed a new 40″x30″ painting which marks the end of a phase for me, I intend to release this new art piece soon inshAllah… All praise is due to The Bestower of Beauty!

One response to “Before the Manifestation of Beauty

  1. Anima. The inner feminine side of a man. (See also animus , Eros , Logos and soul-image .) The anima is both a personal complex and an archetypal image of woman in the male psyche. It is an unconscious factor incarnated anew in every male child, and is responsible for the mechanism of projection. Initially identified with the personal mother, the anima is later experienced not only in other women but as a pervasive influence in a man’s life.
