In Body, Spirit & Soul

This art depicts a meditation I did as a young child where I sat on the front porch meditating and where during that meditation I saw myself projected in the nothingness (pure space) observing the energies and from where I also observed another presence – that of the higher self observing the projected self sitting in the nothingness as well as the body of self sitting on the porch meditating – a trinity of being in body, spirit & soul.

“We mortals, seen as the sciences see us and as we commonly see one another, are mere “appearances”. But appearances of the Absolute. In so far as we really are at all (which isn’t saying much) we have, so to speak, a root in the Absolute, which is the utter reality. And that is why we experience Joy: we yearn, rightly, for that unity which we can never reach except by ceasing to be the separate phenomenal beings called “we”. Joy was not a deception. Its visitations were rather the moments of clearest consciousness we had, when we became aware of our fragmentary and phantasmal nature and ached for that impossible reunion which would annihilate us or that self-contradictory waking which would reveal, not that we had had, but that we were, a dream.“

Passage taken from ‘Surprised By Joy’ by C S Lewis.
