Artwork: Walking the line between insight and mania

I’ve been meditating since 2006 and have often had images appear that I paint or write poems about. But in the last 5 years as my bipolar began to become out of control my meditations sometimes became manic as I sought to cultivate states of bliss. This painting is a reminder to myself that simple breathing or walking meditations bring me calm and to be content with that.

Mindfullness

My heart is singing from all of the things we’ve already done, my love.

My heart is singing because of all the things we’re going to do, my love.

My heart is singing because of all the things we’re doing in this moment, my love.
