Path to Enlightenment by Shopot Path to Enlightenment by Shopot
Path to Enlightenment

24in x 48in,
Oil on canvas

In order to be enlightened, one must fall, disintegrate, die, and be reborn. I tried to mirror my personal stage of this path, the moment before descending into the black abyss.

Woaw.

It's absolutely striking and terribly beautiful. It matches perfectly the way I felt until very recently and echoes my feelings so bloody well. As always, when I fall in love with a piece of art, I find myself at a loss of words. But I find the way you treated the lights and the colors amazing.
It's so inspiring and makes me want to draw and paint all night long. Thank you for sharing it with us. Bravo!

Thank you so much! Inspiring someone is the best compliment I can receive. I'm glad you can resonate with my work =)

we don't get the 'fall' bit - like your already fallen

it's not quite reborn either

more like the real 'global' self / character goes active
and can feel like a prisoner trapped in that body too - 3 days to settle

as for the black abyss - stay away - there's nothing there except infinity

your already accross / there / what you become

that's why these path's are more called 'realization'


and even more so - 'realization ov nature' - like it's the natural garden at the end ov the path
not some astral plane / dream state


no wonder we get to a point we burn all the books - most are missleading

Wonderful color. I like the magical tone implied here.

"one must fall, disintegrate, die,"
"one must die."
So you're telling me... :iconyoumustdieplz: you must die!
