A message from the artist: June 21th, 2001.
I would like to take this opportunity today to wish everyone a happy Summer Solstice. For me personally, this has always been a special time of year...that point in which we are closest the Sun. I suppose being born on the cusp of Gemini and Cancer would bring about such a personal affiliation. But I have always shared a special "relationship" with the Summer and Winter equinox, as with the Sun itself for as long as I can remember. A good friend once signed my High School yearbook, "To Brown: From the Sun, Paul ; )
I first became "consciously" aware of the "SunSpirit" energy in the summer of 1994. At the time, the thought of producing a line of fine art was just a dream long abandoned. But the vision rang true and the inner voices beckoned, and I, driven by an intuitive calling, had to follow. Two years later in 1996, riding a wave of digital imaging transformations and the information age, the female essences broke thru in full force with the creations of the "Angelic Realms" and "Goddess' of the Zodiac" collections. I've written of these experiences in "The Gallery History" and the "SunSpirit Story" . Then in June of 1997, this web site gave me an opportunity to share openly about the creations of a mythological series of artwork entitled : "Faces of God" . The creation of this series has been chronologically journalled in writings within this web site beginning with an introspection entitled: "Portrait of Meditations" . These renditions of the mythological "Gods" of Zeus, Thanatos, Ra, and Ares, are now being combined with another line of Goddess renditions to create the "Cosmic Mythology" collection. These experiences have continued to this date to be journalized in such writings as "Return of the Dove" , "Activation at Giant Rock" , "Integration" , "Joshua Tree and the Tribe of Seven" , "Re-discovering the Flower of Life" , and "The Merkaba, and Non Linear Ascension" .
These collective experiences since the summer of 94' have altered my horizons and understanding of myself, as well as the universe, in ways in which I never imagined possible. A threshold was crossed over, and there is no coming back. The price has been high, the clearing intense, and the toll heavy. Many mistakes were made along the way and at times have had to ask for much forgiveness. I still do. It is said nothing happens without reason. Since then, because of this web site, I have heard from many over the years who have written from all over the world to share their own journeys, experiences, healings, "trials and tribulations" of their own spiritual awakenings, as well as their own personal confrontations with adversities such as chronic illness, personal injury, the passing of loved ones, depression, and addiction. Many have written to express their gratitude for the inspiration that the work of the Gallery seems to have given them. Or to express their longing to connect with another that is also experiencing such profound changes in their life today. Often, we find ourselves alone, dealing with our own perception of a 'changing reality" around us. These are indeed auspicious times, and even though we may not entiely grasp the whole "picture", there is no doubt that there is indeed something going on within our world that is beyond our normal comprehension. We stand at a time in history when science is on the brink of discoveries that will rattle the very foundations of our belief systems. Carl Jung once said, "I do not need to believe,..I know". With that said and if what we "know" is true, the real challenge of today will be to "walk between the worlds" and "become the bridge" for future generations to follow. I do not consider myself the source of this work, but only a "tool" for it's manifestation from source itself. I trust and have faith in this source. I know I am not alone. Your stories and sharing in turn has inspired me to continue to create SunSpirit Gallery and to share my experience with you. For this I am grateful.
Joseph Campbell once wrote,...."The images of myth are reflections of the spiritual potentialities of every one of us. Through contemplating these, we evoke their powers in our own lives".
In retrospect, I now understand the truth of this statement. In contemplating ancient myths and archetypes in the creations of many of the gallerys images and writings, their powers were evoked and reflected the spiritual relationships and potentialities within my own life. I have found the re-discovery of cosmic myths to be a spiritual process. Many answers about our existence lie in mythology. Author of the "Solarian Legacy", by Paul Von Ward writes,...
"A myth may include a veiled explanation of an enduring truth, as in Platos allegory of the cave or Jesus's parable of the mustard seed. Humanity needs a new "human-in-the-cosmos myth", a new description of our Solarian Legacy , one that is powerful enough to encompass believable explanations of our stellar past, includes theories for things unseen, and leads to significant behavorial choices. It will deal with such profound issues as the creation of the universe and it's creatures, evolution of social institutions, and human relationships with nature and other beings. It's recitation will connect seemingly disconnected events to reveal their inner meanings. Such a myth for the twenty-first century will recall the perennial wisdom of the past, consolidate and integrate the lessons of many cultures, and take advantage of the insights of science that can be validated through human experience.
Perhaps in some way, the gallerys collective work, along with the work of many others as we enter a new millenium, helps to plant a seed for this "new human-in-the-cosmos-myth" which hopefully, someday, may serve humanity in a new era of time to come. A contemporary "Mythic Naturalist" artist Jonathon Earl Bowser writes,
" A myth is any enduring story that engages the mystery of existence, and thereby seeks to relate the human experience to the divine. It is the expression of the irresistable human need to touch and comprehend in this touching-some sacredness that we feel around us. In our modern technological world, myth has become a perjorative term; when we say something is mythical, we mean that it is fictuious-not real. This is a tragic corruption of it's original meaning. A myth is not something that is out there in the world that is waiting to be revealed through archeological revelation. It is not any kind of phenomenal truth that can be apprehended by the senses. A myth lives in the shadow world of the unconscious; it is a Noumenal Truth: Like Love, it is a real-world, real Truth, that can never be proven to exist; it can only be apprehended by the mind. The enlightenment of wisdom and awareness are hidden, waiting to be retrieved from the forbidding labyrinth of the universal dreamscape-the mind itself.
The SunSpirit Myth is a fusion of spirituality and the natural sciences. A testament to the powerful underlying spirit that is contained in all things seen,.....and unseen. Even if a myth cannot ever be proven, or apprehended by the senses (as we know them), it is a part of a collective consciousness. Perhaps it is the re-emergence of a "sixth sense", or the developement of a higher state of consciousness, that will connect and serve as a link to our ancient past, while blazing a brand new path to our future. Spirituality to me is in relationships. That inter-connectedness between humans, nature, the cosmos, each other, and ourselves with God. It is the hope and intent of this work, to express this fusion of oneness by demonstrating spiritual relationships through the natural science of art.
I have learned much about the realm of "SunSpirit" while creating this work,...some of which I am still learning and re-membering. But primarily, I have come to learn of this "Spirit of the Sun" as the connection, or the union of "Spirit" with " higher self", in each of us, as one with the creator of Heaven and Earth and all that exists inbetween. Please join me in the serpent dance with "SunSpirit and Moonessence" as we enter the third millenium and anchor the new energies of Heaven on Earth.
"Veiled in the romance between all things that are separate and apart, awaits the enlightenment of completion in unity".
In Love and Service,
