If you have not yet had the privilege of meeting the brilliant Advaita (non-duality) teacher, Francis Lucille, allow me to introduce you with a few brief videos from Stillness Speaks. Enjoy.
close-up views of my painting "Grotto"
The deep parts of my life pour onward,
as if the river shores were opening out.
It seems that things are more like me now,
That I can see farther into paintings.
I feel closer to what language can't reach.
With my senses, as with birds, I climb
into the windy heaven, out of the oak,
in the ponds broken off from the sky
my falling sinks, as if standing on fishes.

"Brian Rutenberg Study" ~ Bonnie Zieman
Having recently discovered the work of Brian Rutenberg, and loving it, I decided to try a painting in a similar style. While I fall far short of the caliber of his work, I still like the result of my effort to paint in a similar abstract landscape style.

"Puzzled" by Bonnie Zieman
(click on image for larger view of NY Times Puzzle)
"Were we to love only those without imperfections,
this world would be a desert for our love."
"Nothing is more injurious to immediate experience than cognition."
"We are dragged along by fate to that inescapable goal
that we might have reached walking upright."

(2013 painting by bz)
Only the living presence of the eternal images can lend the human psyche a dignity which makes it morally possible for a person to stand by his own soul, and be convinced that it is worth his while to persevere with it. Only then will he realize that the conflict is in him and that the discord and the tribulation are riches which should not be squandered by attacking others. ~Carl Jung
