Illustrations from my COVID Journey. Excerpts below illustrations from: Pascals Recovery of Man’s Wholeness : .
Time Travel is peaking friends. With access to technology far beyond the evolution of our own minds, we have a most fertile opportunity of connectivity. I thought for a moment... what if time travel existed within us. Visiting Grandma is an opportunity to step back into time. Visiting my young nephew is an opportunity to spend time with the future. Social Media is much like the scene from avatar where we plug in for the details of our ancestors and souls that have passed before their time.
I've been playing with the idea of time travel and memory, paradigm shifting and disorientation. Our memories ground us, but our brain kicks information all of the time. Do we ever go back to reexamine the kicks? Have you ever kept a journal only to be afraid to GO BACK and read what you wrote? I feel fear when I think about revisiting old words I've written. Fear that I've forgotten something important, fear that what I have written is more REAL as I am more aware, but what is fear. I've pinpointed the deep root of one particular fear...
"Awareness of the Unknown"
This title is from an illustration created June 2019. Fast-forward to September 2020,
I now innerstand this illustration.
From Left to right. The subject presents as a newborn child a sponge of his environment. Second, a curious and confused adolescent. Third, an individual who has sculpted ideals of survival that intrude upon his morals as little as possible. Lastly, the subject has been stripped of EVERYTHING and has submitted to what Karma has presented as a gift for his participation. We pray you are a subject of GOOD KARMA... One can only hope.
To the left of this commentary (or below if you are reading from a mobile device) you will find digitally augmented illustrations from a journal I have been keeping since March 3, 2020. The news of the Pandemic went public not long after I started journaling and the illustrations gifted to me are beyond my understanding, today. While living in Dunedin, Florida, I was called to a particular book, Pascal's Recovery of Man's Wholeness by Albert N. Wells. This was one of those books where I opened it and all the words felt good to my Artistic Soul. I didn't want to do a super traditional journaling of my emotions so I used this book as a guide into spirit, to dig a little deeper into my feelings, deeper than mainstream curriculum.
I feel very strongly that the 2020 Stix illustrations next to excerpts from Albert N. Wells' Recovery of Man's Wholeness 1965 is some serious time traveling. We can travel even further back to the 17th century with Wells where he is pulling from Blaise Pascal Pensées 1670.
Time is beautiful, and painful, and beautiful all over again. What are you doing with your time?
