Seventh Dimension Love

Wearable painting by Aida Toure
wearable painting

~ Seventh Dimension Love ~

Love is the union of divine qualities,
the hidden suddenly revealed
tending to ineffable beauty;
the lotus that leaps out of
the lover’s soul as an offering
to the collective soul…

Nothing Other than You

Nothing Other than You - jewel by Aïda Touré
Nothing Other than You – jewel by Aïda Touré

~Nothing Other than You~

There are infinite ways
to near the Beloved,
bead after bead
revolving like micro spheres
in reverence,
the heart tears open,
leaning toward Hu
and we lose our selves:
“there is nothing other than You!”

Creativity & External Validation

© 2012 Aida Toure’

In materialistic cultures, creatives are conditioned to seek external validation whereas creativity is an inner endeavor, impulsed by the cosmic movements called Love~ Creativity is a grand manifestation of divine Love and Freedom, to approach it with the quest for fame in mind defeats its sacred purpose.

With creativity, one learns the cultivation of sublime intimacy as a constant state of being, there is nothing more beautiful than this as consciously, one works at being present with Love itself in a consistent way~ Once one understands this, there no longer is room for ego desires or attachments such as fortune or fame since the soul is fully fulfilled in its expansion and all that it brings. As a matter of fact, the pursuit for external validation with its restlessness tends to thwart the creative process and to taint the artist, it can be highly destructive… There is so much that comes with creativity that one must learn to be selective and understand that worldly or institutional considerations are best taken with detachment.

Eagerness for the recognition artists are conditioned to seek causes them great distress since it conflicts with the very essence of creativity which is hidden, secret, subtle, sacred, silent and of The Divine~ Creativity is indeed a perfect and powerful phenomenon that offers itself to shatter the narrowness and weight of a coarse dimension, it is in itself a triumphant experience where Light reigns, it is the ultimate form of validation from The Divine to the human soul; after IT nothing the world claims it can “offer” one even matters.

“Run forward, the way will spring open to you
Be destroyed, you’ll be flooded with life
Humble yourself, you’ll grow greater than the world
Yourself will be revealed to you, without you.” ~Rumi
