On the Cusp

Like a brush tip loaded with paint, about to hit a blank canvas, CoSM is poised to begin a new phase. Gathering and aligning documents from architects, engineers, contractors, surveyors and appraisers, opinions and consent from lawyers and CoSM’s board, preparing financials for the bank and building plans for our town…

We ask for your prayers and blessings at this moment to allow all necessary paper work and construction proceed with ease and grace and provide a profound spiritual and material grounding for the successful realization of Entheon, CoSM’s Sanctuary of Visionary Art.

At CoSM’s 7-Day Painting Intensive, artists immerse in an environment that supports their visionary and spiritual development through their artwork. In August, Alex and Allyson led the Class of 2014 in the study and sharing of techniques, processes, and art history. Painting and meditating in the CoSM’s studio to uplifting and stimulating music, days were filled alternately with sharing and critique, then painting meditation. The  collective body of work resonated with themes of visionary enlightenment. Class Assignment: two paintings, one inspired by a vision, the other a self-portrait. Special thanks to guest artists Randal Roberts and Morgan Mandala for inspiring to this year’s Intensive.

Revelations of Divinity

Revelations of Divinity

The divinity of the human imagination is the meeting point of world religions, because all begin with stories of God contact, and that only happens within the human psyche. The mystic philosopher, Ibn Arabi, specifically calls the creative imagination our angel, where God meets God. Ibn Arabi couldn’t be any more explicit. An angel is an apparition or theophany that is apprehended by the soul’s eye. This soul’s eye view is what all of sacred art and literature share, a portal to divinity. Today’s visionary artists, having had transcendental experiences through meditation and sacrament, are translating those apprehensions of the infinite inter-dimensional cosmos through their own skillful means.  The planetary movement of visionary artists affirms the cross-cultural unity of these ecstatic inner realms and interconnectedness of all life and the cosmic order.

Humanity is tapped into the Heavens.  We are embodiments of a Hermetic staff connecting material and spiritual worlds, by means of the divinely aspiring mind.  Throughout the great wisdom traditions, stories of contact with Divinity appear as the ultimate experience of truth and reality, a revelation of Oneness and identification with the life renewing love energy beyond space and time. In a Spirit that honors all lenses to Divinity, we seek the highest and deepest understanding and mystical experience within our capability. The cosmic evolutionary force has transformed from 13.8 billion year old plasma-gas, to a vast expanse of galactic clusters of solar systems and on our earth from 3.8 billion year old blue-green algae through all biology toward beings open to revelation. The imaginal realms of the one writing this and the one reading this are sacred mirrors of the Divine Artist fabricating the now.
