The Halo (Reach The Light)
50x40cm, oil, canvas. 2017-2018
It is hard to go,
Dirty stairs, dark road.
I keep try and climb
I have light in eyes.
The road to light often begins in darkness. But everyone can find a way to their radiance, even from the darkest cave. It is necessary to rise yourself every day to a new step.
The path to the light, to the truth, to the goal. It starts with ignorance, self-centeredness, and a dirty basement. This path is difficult. Each step towards the light is accompanied by overcoming laziness, greed, and stupidity. Perhaps, as Lao Tzu said, it is impossible to reach the light, but it is important to move towards it, overcoming both external and internal obstacles. By changing ourselves, we are changing the world. And then, perhaps, like Siddhartha Gautama, each of us will be able to attain truth, light and gain the wisdom of Buddha.
