Artist's Description

© C J Lewis. A photograph of a ghost gum tree trunk was the inspiration, and used as the base, for the subject matter. PhotoPlus6 for air-brushing, smudging, colouring, contrasting and sizing. I use the mouse with the smudge tool to move the colours around and into the shapes desired as I don’t have a Wacom tablet.

JANUARY 2009 FEATURED IN C.O.R.E group AND Unconventional Artistry GROUP


I have also hand painted this in oils on stretched canvas 3’x 4’ that you can view here where there are details of the painting for sale.

Tibetan Chant for Enlightened Mind

The word Christ in Eastern terminology means the enlightened one, a vehicle of enlightenment it was not actually a part of the name of the man, that was called Jesus Christ. He was called Jesus Christ as he was Jesus, the man, who was enlightened and as such understood the energies, and therefore the process of life, in this world which is what sayings such as: “As you sow so shall you reap” and “As you give so shall you receive” and other such explanations referred to…the physics of the energies of this world.

Enlightened, enlightenment basically means the understanding, the conscious awareness, of just being and living from the higher sense of the knowledge of self, the Higher Spirit which is directly linked to the Soul, the divine God essence of All, that is above the egocentric mind-set which creates animosities when emotions run high and reactions occur to the action of not thinking what is going through one’s mind…reacting in anger to a situation that has made you feel wronged or whatever instead of seeing the emotion for what it is…a bad feeling that urges you on to create a drama in your life.

Such unconscious awareness is a form of mental dysfunction (mental illness) and causes reactions such as segregation, wars, killing, jealousies, envies etc and pits nation against nation. It’s also the cause of the many problems, both past and present, that creates suffering.
