A Thicket of Views
Newest painting... "A Thicket of Views" 16x20 oil on canvas. The Buddha described this as asking the BIG, albeit irrelevant questions when pertaining to daily life. Questions that have no answers, yet divide, create judgement, separate, form lines in the sand, even begin wars. It is enough to wake each morning, put one foot in front of the other, and experience this day... although not many of us can do that. We live in the past or we project into the future. Rarely do any of us really exist in the moment. The Buddha advised stepping out of the thicket of views, dropping these ideas and concepts, for there is no happiness to be found there. Happiness is in the now.
