She approaches the familiar cave with a single rose, seeming to float at the entrance to the sacred space. Emanating from the recesses of the heart-shaped cavern is a light that draws her heart ever closer in spirit and in truth. The lion and the buffalo are there and the whole creation pulses with the life that was in him, now poured out into all the world.
A flow of rainbow-colored water gushes forth from where someone has left a single candle in remembrance. A light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it. Below, life springs forth from an eternal pool that creates a heart-shaped indentation in the barren and shadowed landscape.
She stands on the edge of all things, present to this passage, knowing there is no separation, no journey too long to make their Great Return. She will hold the single rose for all eternity.
What is your essential story of life? What is alive in you?
I hope this painting has sparked a reconnection and remembrance for you today. I believe there is beauty to be found right here, right now, all around you and right there within you.
I'll meet you on the way!
ABOUT THE MAGDA SERIES. These are the stories that have lived in my heart and soul for the whole of my life. They are glimpses of one whom many remember and honor—the one known as Magdalen or Mary Magdalene. I call her Magda. Her story is alive in me and always leads me back to life and life to the full.
There are four series in the collection of Magda paintings:
Series 1: THE LIFE BEFORE Series 2: THE STORY THEY LIVED Series 3: ACROSS THE SEAS OF TIME Series 4: THEIR FOREVER STORY
