Being Human the Representative of Humanity 24" x 30" Oil Painting
To become truly human we must go through the hero's (heroines) journey and overcome many trials. Buddha said it, "Life is Suffering." There are tremendous joys, sorrows, creative and positive manifestations of our collective destiny as well. This portrait is an image of one who has conquered themselves.
“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
―Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Goethe was a man ahead of his time, he realized through his deep inner work what new physics is just now beginning to discover.
