One Just Never Knows
1993



One never knows the soul worthwhile

Lest one knows the magic of the world within



One never knows…






One never knows when the wondrous toil of the hand

Will meet joy that lives in the gentle of heart




One never knows…





One never knows how much tender word

D`oth heal a damaged soul if left unspoken





One never knows…






One never knows different color of skin

Should the eyes not see the beauty in all




One never knows…





One never knows hurt from deceit bestowed upon another soul

Should forgiveness not behold




One never knows…





One never knows tender the gift of Love

Le`st one hand reach out to touch a star



One never knows…






One never knows how full the cup of joy

Le`st one dream of chalice passed




One never knows…





One never knows the Brilliant Divine Love

That d`oth shine kiss upon the window of the soul




Le`st one see such face reflected back

Time after time






 

One just never knows

A difference from beginning to end


Until presence in nothingness opens the heart of mind






One just never knows



















What is the nature of life?

  What is the purpose to be here on earth now 
during this lifetime?




We all ask these questions in search for our own answers as we realize that outside of our self there is not another soul that can understand more wholly than our own inner being who the self really is.

What is right, or what is wrong?


How are we to know and where do we find the faith in our self to trust that instinct to make the decision of right or wrong?



It is up to us as individuals striving for a life of peace and beauty to discover these truths about our own beingness.


We will then be strong enough to stand together as the entire human race ready and willing to create balance in our unsettled war torn beautiful blue earth.

We have come to believe that the abstract facets of our self must survive in order to define reality in the present moment ~



We are already whole!



Through the authentic self we arrive at the sacred site of our soul, a place of quiet contentment.


How can we say that luck and chance, destiny & fate are the same thing?


Believe that chance is the first unconscious step you take, luck then is what comes from taking that step without your deep thought.  Fate is the direct result that happens to us when we act hastily from fear on a delusion of chance ~ fear delivers fate.

Destiny on the other hand is a result of a conscious decision to understand the difference, then to take that same step into the unknown by conscious choice fearlessly as we hold tight to our dream of peace and love on earth.


Dream directly connects to destiny. 

Which one would you consciously choose?


Instinctively we know the truth is there.  We believe this fundamental knowing without being told by another.

Believe that when one decides to listen to the mystery of the Divine from within, hidden truth is surely revealed; that truth is there always just for us all to acknowledge in that land of deep dream, the moment of nothingness,  unaffected by outside influence.



We bring forth fractions of our life lived from the very beginning that we share with others during our times in the universe.  It is all there ~ rich ~ fertile ~ full of sensuality.


If  freedom of choice is recognized as our truth, at that point we can begin to realize and then to release the painful dark memories of the past forever and be free ~ a complete state of universal balance within the core of individual self, waits quietly within to be realized.



The life-contract signed when we enter earth plane does not leave restraints of time on our free will, not before or after our death. The door is there, when and where the Art of your life begins to live life consciously, it has always been there ~ where our Divine Source resides. 

When we choose to leave earth forever and never return no longer depends on the level of dense energy we know as Karma, energy of our history of choices. 

We choose when to return to creative source, it is a conscious decision we all have access to,  all of us, if we want it and are ready to accept that responsibility.  

Be the creative expressive journey you were designed to be, then witness the mind manifest dreary aspects of the past creatively into peaceful nothingness.  Set the soul free during those private expressions of inner love ~ the Divine moment of one’s own timeless truth.


Without the powerful intention implied by conscious choice, Divine Mystery will not manifest. 


Like the pendulum of an old clock we sway back and forth through our emotions.

Relieve the mind from the immediacy of having to hold balance ~ be at peace ~ be still in a conflicting present ~ timeless moment is anything but hard work; it is joyful communication with the true self that releases pleasure instantly ~ leaving one with a great sense of contentment throughout eternity ~ should that be what one desires.



Piero Ferrucci  http://www.sevenpillarshouse.org/article/conversations_with_remarkable_minds_dr_piero_ferrucci/, author of the book Inevitable Grace shares with us that:

" we all have moments of inspiration, a sudden fleet of understanding, the solution to a problem, a state of grace, a brilliant thought about a future project, a witty remark, these are ‘those moments’ we all search for. "

Each person has within them a special quality of grace that is unparalleled to any other being.

Unfortunately, many do not believe in themselves or their gifts, and so hide their spark of uniqueness buried under a blanket of insecurity.  There is so much more ~`` 
Discard the everyday mask ~ reveal the beautiful true self you really are.




Creativity has a direct connection to real personal emotion.  In order to connect into this personal energy called Supreme Creative Force, we must open a bigger channel to and from the heart and soul mind to align with body and allow the manifestation of creative essence to flow through all our healing cells overflowing with joy to all who pass our way. 



We have to expand our consciousness in order to bring forward that original power to a higher level.  Begin to experience automatically more of the intuitive, creative being we are all designed to be.



 When the art of your heart

Becomes

~* The Beauty of your life *~





There is nothing more exciting than a new creative flow to open heart to a life of personal inner strength.  

It is my hope and intention that the sharing of thoughts and expressions along the way encourage one to think about life in a very new and exciting way.  



It is through personal expression in order to unveil the hidden fragmented parts of the self, that the pressure of a timed moment will dissolve, emerge, then transcend on a subliminal level with the unchained moment of true beauty and love seeded within our own conscious heart mind.



My Prayer for you is that you find your true moment of endocept the beginning of your own thought, then for you to see that you indeed have the right action to follow through on all or your beautiful loving dreams.


You are the joy of real freedom in this lifetime.



Celebrate the life of all those children who believe no-one cares that they are hungry, homeless, of ill health or worse yet, unloved; more painful than a body full of broken bone.

A heart without hope endures all of the horror at the same time.
How can we do this effectively together to help with the hunger of earth?

The mind says;

One step at a time ~ One heart at a time



The heart says;

Plant a seed, share the truth that you yourself know to be true.



Without Peace The Soul can not Ascend!

Imelda Maguire, Marg Bird, and Marilyn Clack at work painting the Coach for the Gala ~ Orient Express Ball ~  Heydenshore Pavilion, Whitby Ontario 1982.






As a volunteer for the Whitby Station Gallery in Whitby Ontario for several years, I witnessed many wonderful artists unfolded their work revealing the ~ Grace ~ of their craft.  It was all one could do just sit there silently watching in awe.  During this time I was able to explore the dance of the Sumi brush as well as fall madly in love with the art of Sue Tabuchi who greatly inspired the mastery of the stroke; concentration on the freedom of the brush.

Unfortunately I could not find any work of Sue Tabuchi posted on the web as an example of Sue's brilliant mind.  Might you be reading this and know of any Sue Tabuchi work and  have a link please feel free to add your news in the comment box below the post, most appreciative I would be as would the other viewers of this site.


Many Thanks.


God Bless


~*LOVE ALWAYS*~

Angel Cocoon and Fantasy Flower were commissioned by my nephew Leonard Manning to help pay for my travel expense on the Go Train during my first year of the Ontario College of Art.

Indeed I explained to Len that he did not have to pay his Aunty Mel for his painting, a pleasure it would be to do this for him.  Insisted he did indeed, just like a true gentleman would. I am eternally grateful to Leonardo Da Vinci (my Papa’s nickname for my nephew Leonard) for always believing in the artwork.

  Oil ~ 24 x 36, 1986

The concept of Blue Madness is taken from the view inside of the mind behind the lashes of the eye; a view that was brought on through a physical experience of the body when mind automatically blocked the mental and emotional pain suffered as a direct result from being rear-ended in an automobile accident. The image that manifested during the first few moments of shock was one of a very comforting sensation of the self floating on on an ethereal pond under the warmth of the sun as presence became that of being a wee fly or frog upon the leaf of a water lily bloom.


All reality of the outside world in that very moment ceased; it had been blocked by mind, or perhaps it was the soul to remove all shock and pain from the  unconscious self.



It was my thought that these two pieces hanging in the Women’s Shelter might bring some measure of calm to the families who visit there for a short while through their troubled times.  


Sometimes it is necessary to take a painful memory of the past from fully expressing itself in the moment by releasing those old fragmented stories of ours out into the universe in some healing creative way. 


It is up to us to decide when to let go of the grieving memories of a past.  Once released out from the inner depths of our inner soul in a loving sharing with the rest of humanity, or either privately within your own heart, such pain then becomes just that ~ a memory ~ the past.  I have discovered that it is alright to look back for a glance every once in awhile but only for a fleeting second to remind ourselves that what was, is now truly gone.  Our look back is only a reminder of our lessons learned.  Indeed we will eventually accept our personal part of that drama however large or small from beginning to end in that particular moment of time to heal our own soul, remembering always to forgive the self.


Remaining to be mindful of that moment of reflection will ensure us not to repeat our unconscious decisions again, painful memories released evaporate forever from our precious DNA by the simple choice of surrendering into the moment of now to heal the images of mind.  Be mindful to hold the thought that those memories are indeed truly gone.


Blue Madness was gifted with great respect to the services rendered to women by women in providing support as well as a safe environment for those mothers and children that have had to flee their home in order to find peace, comfort and care from the tyranny of abusive life situations that have run amuck in our life; out of control.


The Women’s safety network also acts as a liaison for those in need with the many Government financial and care services that help with affordable housing, trauma resource, legal and medical services for troubled families.  The many contacts that are opened to an individual are a direct aid to the mothers and children in the challenging effort to continue to look forward to their brighter tomorrow.


It is our choice to decide when we are truly ready to heal the imprint that comes from physical, mental, and emotional pain; simply release them into the wonder of nothingness.

Study in Color Vibration #1

When the eye focuses on where two colors meet that definable line is called the line of demarcation.  When one stares at that line of demarcation long enough where the two colors meet and are equal in all regards, the eye will pulsate ~ creating the illusion of movement, the entry into the mysteries of universe through the creative self..
