‘Buddha Heart * Peace in Stillness’
This painting began as an inspiration for an old growth forest, but became this green Buddha. The journey of a painting has a destiny of its own.
I really love the teachings of Eckhart Tolle. His basic message is always the same – it’s our mental concepts about a situation which creates our suffering, so if we bring our awareness fully into this now moment without thought, we have found peace.
So this Buddha (awakened one) reminds me that within the breath of this moment lies peace.
