I've been doing a Sufi practice called Rememberance, as described by Mark Silver, a business consultant who practices business from a spiritual point of view. I would like to share some of my experiences with this practice occasionally.
The idea is to spend fifteen minutes a day calling into oneself the Divine, by what ever name one chooses. I find myself choosing different names on different days.
|silk painting: Golden Pathway|
available as a print
Yesterday and again today, the name that came to me was "The Way". I felt as though a path opened up for me to follow in my business and in my life. It is hard to explain in words. The image is of a leaf strewn path through the woods opening in front of me. The feeling is of being on the path I am meant to be on, doing what I need to be doing.
We'll see how this pans out in the "real" world. Stay tuned.
What a beautiful painting and image. I hope your path leads you to a place exactly where your dreams are. Looking forward to finding out.ReplyDelete

I love this idea--practicing business from a spiritual point of view. I'm definitely going to have to look into this more. The image that came to you is incrediible. Just beautiful! I'm glad you are on that path. I'd love to join you and walk with you awhile! I'll visit your blog to do so!ReplyDelete
PS- 45 Houses! The ones you describe would make great juicy houses--chicken coup, army barracks, patchwork house. Sounds awesome!ReplyDelete
Thanks. this is a very meaningful image form me. So different from your work, Kirk!ReplyDelete
Carrie, I would totally love to have you join me for as long as it pleases you!ReplyDelete
Your work in this and the last two posts is quite beautiful. I love the sketchy ink and watercolors in the earlier posts, how the colors overlap and the incomplete lines. In this one I am fascinated by the rocks, frankly. They have such a smooth glow - is it the effect of the silk? The path does seem magical - the title is perfect. It is a beautiful reflection of the correct path, the way. I'm pleased to have found your blog.ReplyDelete
The glow is the silk. The colors really shimmer!ReplyDelete

Sufi thought resonates withe me, thought I identify as a Quaker. My favorite poet currently is Hafiz, a Sufi master, as translated by ..um..just a minute, I have to go look it up. Names don't stay in my memory well. Here it is: The Gift by Daniel Ladinsky.ReplyDelete
