This painting is a personal prayer, a journal entry, expressing the masculine aspect of me making love to the feminine, in Holy Matrimony. Both beloveds are essentially 'me' joined in Sacred Unity, initially created so that I may call in this level of connectivity in Sacred Relationship intimacy. Inspired by the agony of separation mentality, I set out to integrate duality and become the beloved of my heart intimately. I have since experienced the mirror of his light upon my chest, my needs are met and my mind can rest, Rumi’s quote has said it best, “Out beyond the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” This is the essence of the Lovers nest, where shame feels safe to get undressed, son’s light sets in the feminine west, shining Christ~Love upon her breast.. We Are Heaven on Earth, We Are One and We Are Blessed.
I first imagined.. what would it be like to have a heavenly relationship with my partner? And my inner response was, 'first have a heavenly relationship with ME'. I started to really listen to the 'me' voice that responded to the question. So there are two of 'me'? Ok. After that moment, the way both aspects of me felt was now my top priority, testing to see if it would integrate and transform my life. I began to notice the underlying anxiety fueling many of my actions, especially in relationships with others, as a reflection of the war inside of me. I knew I had to do some serious listening to both aspects of my feelings if I ever wanted to know and love who I really am, as an integrated whole. This painting is a very intimate and personal prayer for me, depicting the feminine me making love to the masculine me, in holy matrimony. Both beloveds are essentially 'me' joined in Sacred Union. This is the first artwork that 'light language' began to emerge through as well. It was pure in-joyment to let it flow. The painting went through a number of transformations and has evolved tenfold since its first publishing on Bryan Reeves' viral blog titled "Choose Her Everyday, or Leave Her". That was the first time I'd ever published an unfinished painting, and here it is now completed, for all to see my creative process. Quite vulnerable indeed!
Let this be a tribute first to the Divine Source that breathes me into existence, as well as three highly inspirational people: My Beloved Ian. Sharing our lives together is an incredible experience. When I found me, I found you. Alicia Keyes and her thought provoking song lyrics, "What if Sex was Holy, and War was obscene", an exerpt from her new song titled "Holy War" and Rumi's translated quote "Out beyond the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a Field. I'll meet you there."
