Blue Tara’s Violet Flames

The burning beacon of our blue mother star.
Her secret mantra like smoke rises in our wounded hearts; to cleanse all contempt and fears away.
She pulls us out of the deep sea’s sorrow and brings us back to shore.
She is the brazen warrior of radical acceptance towards transformative joyous love.
Her blue- violet blaze, is our guide and protector, for our spiritual arrival home.

These are photos of the progess and the finished shrine. This art piece was a real joy to make, and I’m inspired to do a Tara series now. It keeps me connected to what I would want to be one day. For we all can be like Tara/Bodhisattvas if our hearts are open to first self-compassion and then compassion for others that seek the path of self-surrender. Being comfortable in falling apart, to be held, and mended back into something beautiful.

    Love the hope and resurgence in this line. Washed clean and onto the million grains of sand of opportunity. Great words and amazing art. Your talent shines (or flashes in neon blue!)

    • Thank you my friend. Resurgence is excellent description for it. And flashes of “neon blue” like zaps of lightning or being born again. : ) all talent like a heat transfer and utilized with fire, water, earth, and air
