“I believe that when I sleep, I get out of my body and I roam all the universe. I go to the inner planes. I go to the source. I even dare say I go to the source where all the inventors of mankind go… to the House of Invention.”

“Before settlers and priests came from the Old World in Europe, the Native people all over America used their imaginations freely. There was a vast amount of culture. I believe the people were going to the House of Invention.” …

“We are very creative in the House of Invention. Artists go there themselves, or stumble across it, voluntarily go, or go and they don’t remember when they wake up. As well, writers go there and musicians of all kinds go there and pick up their sheet music, which they play when they are awake.” …

“Now music and art are very healing things for people. So we allow ourselves to become instruments or channels for the Inner Master or spirit, so that we may inspire others. I have done this. I have inspired maybe one hundred and fifty followers, two generations of people. Wouldn’t it be nice if they would start to do something with the power they have? Those of us who are able to pick up these things that I am talking about here should allow ourselves to be used so that we can bring down the ideas from the House of Invention.”

Original pen & ink sketch (inversion), 16″ x 20″. 2016

“The kundalini is classically recognized and portrayed as a feminine force. It effects awakening through balance and unity with the masculine aspect of consciousness. In classical yoga, it is the creative force (Shakti) that brings eternal consciousness (Shiva) into action and manifestation. However, this feminine force is not only, as Shakti, the complement, counterpart and consort of the masculine, its “other half”. As Parashakti, She also contains the masculine; in this highest form she is Wholeness itself, not only giving birth to, but containing and subsuming all duality. From a spiritual point of view, because she not only creates but contains and transcends all creation, she is the most immediate bridge to non-dual consciousness and is in fact co-existent with it. From a global point of view, because she reconciles immanence and transcendence, matter and spirit, unifying and healing all conflict and duality, it is her influence that is essential to heal the extreme fragmentation, competition and violence wrought through centuries of patriarchal divisiveness.”

Kavita Byrd from “Kundalini and the Role of the Feminine in Global Transformation.

Divining Tomorrow

Ritchie Sinclair
2016, acrylic on canvas, 28″ x 54″

This painting was inspired by our June 2016 Algonquin canoe adventure. It considers the rite of passage where our children move on into their own lives. As parents we nurtured love in their hearts and we mourn the fact that our intimate time shared together has now past. We entrust their sacred little lives to the guidance and protection of Spirit. It’s so beautiful that just as our young ones move on, so too are we set free to explore and enjoy the wonder of it all for ourselves, as free spirits who were once parents.
