For the most part, there is not very much happening. The clouds drift across the sky, the river meanders to the Ocean. And the song of the Ocean is an endless lullaby, the divine breath that carries the infinitesimal movements of countless beings. This vast, teeming emptiness is that silent, all-pervasive consciousness that we ourselves are. Limits only exist within the limitless. There is only this invitation to surrender to this, your own Presence, timeless, carefree, witness to all that is…

Another project Bird & I completed recently, an artistic rendition of the mantra & yantra of the Goddess Durga.
Durga, like Kali, is a fierce manifestation of the Goddess. She was summoned to defeat an undefeatable demon. We all face an undefeatable demon, from time to time, and Durga gives us the strength to face, embrace, and transcend this demon. Whether it manifests as an addiction, grief, an egotistic tendency, etc., Durga can help us move forward.
The most important thing is our intention and willingness to go through the fire of purification. If our spirit is ready and willing, all the power of the universe is at our disposal. That doesn’t necessarily mean the process will be easy, but it will be possible, and if we persevere we will come out the other side reborn.
This mantra can be very powerful if used properly. Many blessings on your journey!
