चिकना असहज (Rough to Smooth)

The subtitle of this work, “:Rough to Smooth”, not only describes the transition from the outer “rough stones” to the inner smooth ones, but is intended as a parallel to the meaning of the sanscrit “guru”, dark to light. I see our spiritual efforts not only as the classic “paths to enlightenment”, but hope to share the wisdom that the enlightened self is already a part of us, we merely have to “polish off” or let go of the rough edges. The outer world keeps scratching and denting us, so we must continually try to let go of any scars or wounds and “be as smooth and pleasing” to others as possible, that their burdens of self-repair and polishing will be lighter rather than heavier. I find creating and sharing my artworks to be an excellent way to pursue that mission. Peace to you all, David :o)))

Created primarily in Mandelbulb3D starting with parameters from Somewhere else by Theli-at. Kaleidoscope transformation and final render in UltraFractal 5.04. Best if viewed larger.

Some marvelous quotations in this video…
