I watch with utter amazement and great sadness each day at the sheer number of people utterly imprisoned by their false beliefs that are firmly entrenched in what a corrupted and self serving society tells them they should believe. People who think that they are free, yet they work long hours for large amounts of money to pay for overpriced junk they have been told they need yet they do not! The basics of life cost so much because we, in our conditioned ignorance, allow it to be. I see people too afraid to truly live and be who they are. The bullshit artists of the world are running the show on fabrications and false perceptions, never before has the western world been so deluded! Fortunately this can be changed! All it takes is a little courage and for you to make the decision that you want change. Allow your inner light to guide you and just let go and be you! The universal wisdom is there for any who wish to align with it, but you must let go in order to do that. Stop for a moment and return to your inner stillness and ask; “where did this belief come from? Who really says I need that? Why?” If the answer does not originate from you, if it is not your voice speaking to you but your mothers, or friends, or school teahcers’ etc, then it is false and must be discarded because only that which truly comes from your heart is best for you and your situation. Try this often and see yourself. When you are happy and being truly yourself, you inspire, help and raise up others in a most brilliant way. The Buddha knew this. He discovered this and much more and challenged all known beliefs in his time and dispelled the BS artists to whence they came with such clarity. The Buddha was a man. He was born from human parents and conceived the usual way. He discovered a way to be free. He taught ways for anyone willing to travel the path to attain the same. If he can do it, so can you, it’s already inside of you, you just need to let go and you will be a prisoner no more. Namaste.

Created using Apophysis 7X and Paint.Net. Fractal element based from a params for a flame titled “Chain Grid” by NilNil. I reproduced the flame with some alterations and added extra params and tweaks to get the look I was after. Many thanks and blessings to NilNil, most grateful!

    I haven’t read your statement yet, Craig, because as soon as I saw this image and its title, I felt released. I have been imprisoned by my own beliefs for all my life, but not a slave to the exterior world, but rather to the interior creation of my mindset. For too long I believed what I thought and was told to be the truth about myself. But with the completion of my latest mandala and the messages coming through loud and clear from Spirit and the Universe, I know at last that the truth has set me free, that I am my own prisoner no more. No-one can cage my mind except for myself. And in realising that, I am liberated. Thank you so much for your reminder and your beautiful work which resonates in me, heart and soul! xoxox

  • You are most welcome and thankyou for your warmth my friend! I feel this is a message that many will pick up on this year in one form or another. It will be interesting to observe! Can’t wait to see your latest mandala!
