The egyptian waterlily or lotus is the symbol of rebirth and the sun in Upper Egypt (the south) as she closes her flower every night and is seemingly reborn the next day. Life is full of rebirths and deaths during our journey to enlightenment. Being connected to this flower since many years, I was happy to see her on an egyptian relief at Glyptoteket during my last visit in February 2020.

Point of No Return

I felt the surge of water from underneath as I was in the rubber raft, drawn alongside the shore from some strong river rafters, my colleagues. We were heading towards the huge waterfall Tännforsen in the county of Jämtland up north in Sweden. This was in 1985 and I was the first female river rafting guide in Sweden.

I was paddling the raft closer and closer to the neck of the fall with all our heavy gear inside. They were holding me and the raft as we drew closer to the point of no return where the current would take me. I saw Bear Rock in the middle, thinking of the bear that got stuck there and couldn’t pass over in any direction. But I had complete trust in that they would hold on. Such a magical feeling being held. This is my complete trust today in the force, always carrying us.

There is another aspect to this painting as well, and it has to do with dharma. Our life mission. What happens when we finally put our toes into our Dharma River and get swept off our feet into the white waters. When doubt has subsided and fear is gone. And our life force is fully focused on service. Then a thousand doors will open. The current will take us and we won’t be able to stop the movement forward.

Closing in on the lake above Tännforsen, Jämtland. One of the biggest waterfalls in Sweden. Felt the current take the rubber raft as we aimed for the river neck where we would lift the raft and carry it past the waterfall. Actually we sat down in it on the top of the hill and went on the green grass as on a giant slide along the waterfall. See Point of No Return above.

Moving from one setting to another in life, I can see the new forming in the distance with all its possibilities…This painting was the birthing of a whole new series of watery paintings. The Mother Potato as I call the paintings that ignite the birthing process.

Tachyon

One morning I woke up with these formations in my inner vision. I heard a voice saying: Tachyon. So I had to look it up and found this explanation: “Formless Zero-Point Energy, (in Quantum Physics), is considered to be the starting point of the energetic continuum, and the first formed energy to emerge from it is called Tachyon. Named after the Greek word meaning swift, the word Tachyon, like the word electricity, merely describes a type of energy.” When I looked further, I found it is also describing the healing energy I can see through my third eye as colours flowing in to a body.

When I climb up along the mountainside, I can’t see anything than the wall of rock in front of me. I sense there are other mountain tops around me, but I have to keep focus at the immediate surroundings. The rock face, dark with glittering stones in… When the climb is done, I stand tall and pause. I look around in the new light, inhaling the fresh air. This is when I see the Sea of Clouds with its millions of other peaks of possibilities.

An impression from Vestlandet in Norway where I have friends. After some colour experiments at Konstlinjen at the Art School where I teach, I hooked up with the colour combination of raw umber and phtalo blue which gives a vibrant turquoise colour.
