What is all this about silence or stillness?
For many years I have had a daily practice of meditation, so I know very well this place inside were there is peace and silence. No thoughts, no evaluation, no expectation, not good or bad, but still a kind of richness, debth and awareness. I feel very close to the center of my beeing and to existence when I enter this space. I would also use words like valuable and safe to describe the mode, but mostly it is beyond words.
I have tried to paint this again and again over the last few years and some of the results can be seen on my web page amnyland.dk
Many of my motifs are from the nature, because I can, in short moments, also experience this stillness in nature.
Often I have felt alone when beeing with other people, not lonely but alone. But strangely when I’m in the mountains alone I can be overwhelmed by the connectedness to everything.
Today I went on a walk to Kejservarden ( translated to english something like Emperors cairn) together with my sister and my mother, my mother is close to 80 but still jumping from rock to rock. I guess there must be some goat in our genes.
On top of the world.
