The Flowering of Consciousness #1 or Light Lotus #4

June 16, 2014

Title: The Flowering of Consciousness Artist: Jesse Van Horne Year: 2013

Media: Acrylic on wood 18"x24"



What better symbol for awakening than an exploding bloom? And a Lotus at that. Nothing. This is it. Each moment. It is the perfect natural representation of the human experience leading into the awakening of ones consciousness (awareness of ego and egoic tendencies, awareness of the importance and relevance of the present moment).


Many live their entire lives clenched in a bud like state...forever on the cusp of blooming, of daring, of risking, of soaring...


Rumi said something like this..."You were given wings, you damn well better figure out how to use them!"
