Again, we have another “penis picture”.
I chose this one, because to me, the penis represents the active principle, the penetrator and impregnator of the formless resulting in the formed.
What emerged in this picture is the “back” structures associated with the penis (somewhat remind me of the vas deferens heading up and around to seminal vesicles and prostate gland). To me, it almost looked like a heart shape emerged.
And I thought of our hearts putting forth the active principle to impregnate our worlds.
This heart shape wraps around a yellow ball which represents the manipura, third chakra, or sense of self and self-will. I liked the idea of the heart reaching outwards with energy, while cradling our sense of self for protection and safety.
And I realized, as I have been reflecting lately on my decisions in life and art, that our sense of self FOLLOWS our intentions and actions.
When our intentions are sound, and we follow these intentions with solid actions, our sense of self can not help but be pulled along for the ride.
When our intentions and actions are positive, our sense of self becomes positive as well.
In the picture, the penis represent the active principle- the actions. And these actions wrap around the third chakra and help pull along its development. All of this energy is wrapped up and tied to our hearts.
Too many think that the sense of self develops first and then the actions and intentions result from this sense of self.
I would say the opposite happens. Our intentions and actions lead to our developing our most sacred sense of self.
Please think of this the next time you are uncertain about yourself. Allow your purest intentions to emerge and act upon these intentions. These intentions directing your actions will result in the movement of your sense of self in a positive direction.
A few side notes:
I have been working on my artist website. Please check it out if you like…. Soul Healing Art (soulhealingart.com). I would love to know what you think. You can also sign up for my newsletter. Which, currently is in the INTENTION STATE, not the ACTION state. I need to follow my own advice and have my sense of self manifesting in that direction. 🙂
Finally, it is our 6 year wedding anniversary today. I sometimes still can’t believe that I ended up with a such a kind, loving man who sincerely is dedicated to a good (on some days)/ great (on other days) relationship. 🙂
Last night, as I discussed my new website with my husband and he glanced over it, he mentioned “Boner Boys”. I looked at him with head shaking and said, “I have no idea what you are talking about.” I didn’t know if he was referring to a joke he heard at work, a new band, or what…
And he said, “Well that is what I renamed your picture. You know the one”… The picture he is referring to is below:
Which used to be titled “Creation Sentries” but now goes by the name “Boner Boys”.
In all honesty, I feel blessed that I have a husband who can easily and with little fanfare embrace the artist within me- phallic symbols and all.
