Embracing the Maya – oil painting

I feel very excited about this painting. It feels like a breakthrough piece for me. One of those paintings where the pressures of adult life fell away and I entered a state of playful zen.

In Vedic philosophy, Maya is “illusion”, the veil that keeps us entangled and from experiencing the True Self (Brahman – what is really real). We experience the world as we perceive it, or, if you look at Maya as a screen, what we project onto it. Perhaps if we embrace the Maya, dive into it, we can move through it and reach eternal Truth or pure Consciousness (Brahman).

There are books on the Maya – that was a very simple interpretation.
