Artist's Description

This is a Black Ink piece I did last year. Basically illustrates our inner reflective side which we nurse all the time. Some of us are willing to interact with it and discover the art of togetherness…… and some of us live with the conflict of half truths and unseen truths.

I read a great simple book called “The Four Agreements” written by Don Miguel Ruiz….. a Mexican writer who basically has drawn the essence of Maya and Inca philosophy and presented the premise of that thought in 4 structured elements that he requests we believe in and hold onto. The Four elements… or Agreements being:

BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD

Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their on reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of endless suffering.

DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS

Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement you can completely transform your life.

ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST

Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgement, self-abuse and regret.

I would reccommend this reading for all.

PEACE….

I gifted this to a dear friend of mine – a teacher who shares his knowledge with the world.
