Agape – is Greek for the Love of the Divine used in the New Testament to denote the Love of God or Christ for humanity. It can also define our own special Love for the divine, the highest and most noble of Loves, A self-sacrificing love and devotion. When we move onto states of love and gratitude, we naturally move into deep states of mind-heart coherence, the space from which healing on mind, body and spirit level can all naturally take place.
This piece was painted live during “plant music” healing, sound-baths that were part of the “Plant Songs” Fringe Festival art installation.
This piece embodies the Unending Love of the Divine Beloved, the Supreme Creator. This love is never ending and is always flowing no matter where we are in creation. There is no word in the English language that encompasses what this love really is. However, the concept of Compassion more truly summarizes this true divine love.
C S Lewis described Agape as “a selfless love that is passionately committed to the well-being of others.” Compassion is Loving-Kindness in Action. It’s not a passive love. It is an act, love in action. It also embers one with the ability to endure the long suffering of this world and be there eternally in service to humanity & God.
Nothing can extinguish the love that comes through compassion. It’s a flame that burns with love for all things, all creatures, all realms, all dimension, ALL THAT IS! An example is the bodhisattva Quan Yin; the who heard the cries of the world. She vowed she would not ascend beyond this Earth until every single person had attained enlightenment and grown beyond suffering.
This piece explores the coming of our brothers and sisters from the stars that the ancients built and aligned their great temples to like the Great Pyramid of Egypt. For example one of this great temple’s star shafts aligns to the constellation Orion represented by Osiris the God of music and rebirth on the top left. The Egyptians also Align to the 3 helical circling stars of Sirius represented on the left by Isis the Divine Mother and consort of Osiris. They are trintised by their son Horus represented by the flaming pyramidal Eye of Horus in Centre top. Pyramids represent the unfoldment of creation and are found in all forms of matter & nature. The Eye of Horus is used by the divine spirit to unfold all life.
To the top left you see as Orion
Ba Bak Bennu – Dove Hawk Phoenix are the sacred trinity of birds from ancient Egypt. The Dove: the Spirit/peace, the eternal nature of all things.
The Hawk: the law/the prince of peace, our ability to see from a birds eye view. The Phoenix: the power of transformation, baptism, rebirth, the ability to claim eternal life that in inherent to all humanity.
On the bottom left is a male Sphinx and bottem right a female Sphinx, the female consort to the famous Sphinx of the Giza plateau that some still feel is yet to be discovered. Female Sphinx statues have been found in other parts of the Middle East. The Sphinx can represent the vehicle of light. The human face is put onto the lion the represents the local sun power. By conquering the power of the local son we as humanity can use the powers of the sacred birds to fly to the higher star realms to Orion and beyond! Ad Astra! Latin: to the Stars!!
