The mind saw the progressing nature of time, marching forward; old relics falling, replaced by shiny new technology, new ideas and streams of consciousnesses. The message being broadcast from every angle in this new world was the same, although coloured slightly differently. The same angular message from the old world declaring that if the thoughts don’t change, however new things look, they remain the same.

The mind pondered as it wandered, wondering how things ever managed to move forward in the past… then realised this was the problem. Looking back holds the mind back – to move forward, the mind needs to look forward.

Slowly, the mind opened to bright lights on the horizon. New impulses were coming into view. The mind realised the paradigm it caused itself and shifted it accordingly, waiting and preparing for the greatness it now knew lay ahead.

  1. That is exactly what is wrong with how we are living life…We dwell on what bad has happened and never dream about what good can lie ahead for us if we open our minds…I wonder how long it will take the world to realize this? Such a slow road we are walking. Time to start running with the wind! Love your abstract kick you are on. I hope you are having fun πŸ™‚ VK

    1. I am, thanks, VK! This abstract painting, though, I created a couple of years ago, and decided to use it to guide my words with this post… it worked out quite well, I feel! πŸ™‚

  2. The art is brilliant. The color hues are so beautifully dancing with each other!

    The mind…oh boy…one of the most profound yet simple things I’ve realized time and again is that the very act of listening to your mind’s voice and realizing the (paradigm per say) is a huge first step towards a new future.
    And Kh. Gibran said it best when he wrote ” ” The eternal part of our being is conscious of the timeless essence of life & is aware that the past is nothing but a memento of the present and tomorrow a dream of the now.Β ”

    1. Thanks again, Nick. The photo makes the piece look much larger and brighter than it actually is, but the colours do work with each other nicely.
      As for the mind, well, it’s a playground, isn’t it? It likes to have its fun regardless of what’s actually going on around it! πŸ™‚
      Happy weekend to you too.
