Many of us, in fact most of us have had to face very painful events in our lifetime. Be it the loss of a loved one, the pain of a relationship ending or the end of a long career; we have had to face the pain, loss and bewilderment that brings. These events, like any in our life, can make us stronger or we can allow them to sink us into a dark place. We always have a choice. Sometimes these events are the very catalyst needed for change in a positive direction. Whilst this initial pain from the event can seemingly create a gaping hole in our hearts, it is also our chance to employ our highest learning. Yes, it hurts, acknowledge that. Yes, you wish you weren’t suffering it. But you are. Remember a part of what the Buddha taught about life; there is suffering in the world. You can not escape it. We will all suffer old age, sickness and death both in ourselves and those we cherish. Everything and everyone is impermanent, it is the way of things, always has been and always will be. But you can choose how to deal with it. Nothing truly dies, it merely transforms. Allow your true light to shine, be kind to yourself. Forgive. Give thanks. Know that this is part of the journey and ask your higher self what this pain can show you in a positive light. Use the lessons learned to make positive changes in your days, be more kind to yourself and others. When you do this, you allow your heart to sing and this is what transforms and heals that hole. It takes practice and patience but it heals, I know, I’ve done it.

Dedicated to my time with my father; a man of true kindness, true strength and courage.

    Very Beautiful! My son will love this! He is a Rishi and loves any art that uses the ideas of ancient history or far eastern imaging. I like the layers of images and the colors!

  • Thank you so much! Pass on my respect and blessings to your son and I hope he enjoys my works.

    It is so true the hurt hits like a hammer; life is a great teacher when it comes to the realms of the lost heart! Losing a loved one is the biggest reality check; but like you I know that the death of the flesh isn’t the end! And has for being hurt by someone; the true and quickest answer is to forgive. But alot of people won’t do this publicly due to social stigmatization! Craig you have wise soul my brother; for your art and words resonat with truth! The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything; for a clear conscious holds no restraint! Peace!!!…)o(

  • Thanks mate, you’ve said perfectly! Peace my friend!
